I posted some items to give away on our local Freecycle this morning. I have had 3 requests so far. What happened to please and thank you? So far it's been, "I want these. Where can I pick them up?" Maybe it's my mood today but I think common courtesy is becoming a thing of the past. I've decided that the first person to say "please" & politely request these items will get them. What do you think?

I liked the CBD reviews of this book & author.
Okay, this one isn't for me. I bought this for our homeschool. I had a choice of spending $3.60 towards a book or to get free shipping. I decided I would much rather invest my $ in another book than in shipping costs. That decision took about 2 seconds.
THANK YOU DAVEY!!!!!!!
My Mom told me about the sale on these scrapbook scissors this past week. They were on sale for 50 cents each!!!!! WOW! Regular price is $1.99. My kids LOVE these for crafts. I think they would be great for lapbooks too. I bought 10 of them in different designs.

I can't believe we are all sick.............again. This horrible cold has knocked us all down like pins in a bowling lane. Symptoms = Hacking cough; watery, bloodshot eyes; fever; chills; deep muscle aches; congestion; headaches; sore throat; swollen glands; runny nose & constant, from-the-toes sneezing. By ribs hurt terribly from all the coughing. Poor E-boy can hardly stay awake or stand up he is so drained, Boo is looking like a poor Basset hound with her big, brown, watery & droopy eyes, and Bugs is oh, so cranky. Sweet Pea is doing a little bit better as he cold started on Wed. She is still coughing a lot though. Poor girl. Everyone is trying their best but are miserable.
It bothers me that this came on the heels of the stomach virus. We were still recovering from that when this hit and our energy stores & immune systems were scraping the bottom of the barrel. I hate that we are missing out on so many activities too. I AM thankful though for Dave's help in taking care of all of us this weekend. I am also thankful that we have the flexibility to stay home since we homeschool.
If you would please keep us in prayer we would be extremely grateful. I'm hoping with my whole heart that February arrives germ-free & full of good health & energy!

DR. PHIL: The problem we have here is that this chicken won't realize that he must first deal with the problem on 'THIS' side of the road before it goes after the problem on the 'OTHER SIDE' of the road. What we need to do is help him realize how stupid he's acting by not taking on his 'CURRENT' problems before adding 'NEW' problems. OPRAH: Well, I understand that the chicken is having problems, which is why he wants to cross this road so bad. So instead of having the chicken learn from his mistakes and take falls, which is a part of life, I'm going to give this chicken a car so that he can just drive across the road and not live his life like the rest of the chickens.
GEORGE W. BUSH: We don't really care why the chicken crossed the road. We just want to know if the chicken is on our side of the road, or not. The chicken is either against us, or for us. There is no middle ground here.
JOHN KERRY: Although I voted to let the chicken cross the road, I am now against it! It was the wrong road to cross, and I was misled about the chicken's intentions. I am not for it now, and will remain against it.

I like the quote by Rob regarding finding his "surprise". LOL!
The news reporters at the end were funny. The kitty, adorable.
The kids & I went to Bible study this morning, (they did schoolwork while I was in Bible study), and then later this afternoon we worked on Daddy's special supper. Boo helped peel potatoes and Sweet Pea gathered items for me. She rested after that as she wasn't feeling 100%. I made one of Dave's favorite meals (at his request) - Herbed Chicken, Mashed Potatoes and green beans. Usually we would have corn but we had it the night before. For dessert I made him a cake with butter cream frosting from scratch. It was a new recipe. Boy was that cake light! Yum! Everyone enjoyed the meal. Sweet Pea was a great help after dinner helping me by drying dishes & putting food away. Boo helped too after cake by emptying and refilling the dishwasher. There were lots of dishes! =0 ) Dave is a happy boy tonight and I'm sure he will enjoy lots of leftovers tomorrow.
