Katie was up the first day of school before me! She was curling her hair. The high dollar straightener wasn't enough for her, she recently discovered the curling iron....next thing I know she'll be asking for Hot Rollers and Auqa Net and it will be my high school days all over again.
Eighth grade seems to be all about looking cute... oh, I remember those days. She is even liking all her classes. Tonight at dinner she asked me about an algebra question... I quickly told her that algebra makes me a little queasy, she needed to wait for dad for that conversation.
A few months ago Mike got a Blackberry from his company and since his phone still had a contract on it, we let Kellie take. This was completely going against my theory that she did not need one...but now that she has one she wanted new one. One her Dad hadn't worn out. It was the only thing she asked for this year for her birthday. We went today and she got a new phone.
She has been quite since we got it... she is trying out all the game demo's, texting the few phone numbers in her phone and playing all the ring tones over and over trying to decide on one.
I just realized that I like the girls having phones. I just called each of them in their room to tell them to finish up homework and get in the shower...

Today, when they didn't get to go anywhere and we had already played 10 games of Yahtzee, they found a pack of construction paper and had a contest to see who could make the longest paper chain.
It was officially a tie. Really it was. One child wanted to challenge my ruling. If only we had a Christmas tree up to decorate with all the colorful paper.I guess even the dogs are bored. They spent some quality time playing in the piles of paper.
Guess I better get them some more construction paper for the days I'm working. I think it's time for them to go back to school. Not me. Just the kids. I wasn't so bored I was making paper chains. If I was that bored I could finish the laundry. Or clean the car out. Or bath the dogs.... Wonder why other people in our house would ignore all of those things and see paper chains as a productive project...
Tomorrow I'm going to finish all those chores while I pout and fuss. I start school on Wed.

We went to the Big Texan Steak house... our kids were very afraid their dad's were going to try to eat the 72 ounce steak that is free if you can eat it...
