Try this. Thanks to Jenifer at Blogging Baby for the link. She has a link to knock-knock jokes (child friendly) as well. I think I won't mention them to the girls.
(Blogger just ate the rest of my post). It's been cranky all morning. Wouldn't let me type over 30 words a minute. It seems to be doing better now but I'll copy instead of trying to save the draft.
This week has gone by quickly and I've stayed busy. Ray did a great job of keeping up while I was away but there were still things to be done. I celebrated my return by cooking a pot roast on Monday. Tuesday the two younger girls ate at the church and stayed for Bell Choir and Wednesday we polished off the leftovers. Last night I made my infamous tuna glop, much to Elcie's delight. She loves it.
Kept my usual coffee date on Tuesday and lunch with Tim on Wednesday. He's leaving on his Mexican cruise next week and I'm so jealous.
Our weather has warmed a little and may hit 80 or so by weekend. Mornings are chilly though.
I know several of you have had problems with the storms in TX and moving eastward. One of my Ohio friends reported a lot of wind damage (trees down, etc). I'm glad everyone's okay.
The girls are on early dismissal beginning yesterday and continuing through next week. Parent-Teacher conferences of course. At least they're all on the same day and two will be fairly easy. Elcie is doing well and Rebecca is amazing. She brought her last year D in math up to a C and now to a B. She's more focused and much more willing to bring her work home and do it. She's been finishing the bulk of it in class. I can hardly wait to hear what her teacher has to say.
Rochelle (my easy child or so I thought) is another story. I've always been concerned about her. She's a follower and wants to be liked. I know that water runs downhill and I don't like some of the attitude changes I've seen. I know her teacher well - I'll see what she thinks.
I spoke too soon about the typing speed. Back to 30/wpm again. It's driving me nuts. By the time I type it I forget what I wanted to say next. The comment boxes and even accessing blogs have been difficult as well.
So - I'm still trying to catch up with everyone even as a lurker until Blogger gets a grip on itself.
Ray seems to be doing well and almost back to normal for him. Fingers crossed. My cold seems to have left for the most part. The girls are still sniffling but other than that okay.
I've taken Elcie off depo until we can arrange another visit with her pediatrician. Short version - it seemed to be causing more problems than it solved (including morning sickness of all things). I take her to Children's Hospital in Madera near Fresno on Monday to check out whatever the strange little growth is in her ankle. We're hoping it's nothing but it's time to have her orthopedic surgeon take a look. It's about a 50 mile drive each way - not too bad and she'll probably get lunch out of the deal.
Thanks to all for the comments the last few days. Glad you found the Bitacle info useful especially since I don't really understand it myself.
I had a couple more things to say but my typing speed has dropped even further and I'm afraid I'll lose this. Take care everyone and have a great weekend.
Now it doesn't want me to copy. (I have it saved - now it won't post).
