Spring...


It's warm enough today to have a window cracked open in the kitchen and to force young children away from the TV and outdoors. Thank goodness because it has been wall to wall fighting here. Overall Anna instigated 83.6 percent of all the fights that happen.

Tomorrow is St. Patrick's day, so much to my dismay, I have been assigned the making of the layered Jello so Patrick can take it to school. Patrick considers St. Patrick's day his other birthday.

I had to end my boycott of Jewel because
1. It was a real pain not to be able to go to the closest store to me.
2. Fairplay's non sale prices are just as high as Jewel's no sale prices.
3. Jewel has a new savings program called your bucks where you get coupons for $ off your next order when you buy certain items and what is way better about this vrs. their other deals is it will say buy 2 Lean Cuisine get $2.50 on your next order instead of spend $20 and get $5 and then I have to figure out what the participated products are and make sure I have spent $20 blah blah.

So I am back going to Jewel, and I find that many of the cashiers make you feel like you are trying to pull the wool over their eyes when you hand them coupons, they don't just start scanning them, they read them and check to make sure you purchased the right items.

I'd try to shop Trader Joes more because they have good customer service, but a. it's further away and b. the last 3 times I went there, the cheese I purchased got moldy b/4 the sell by date. That's so not cool!

Today Anna came home from school and said that Mohammed's mom told him that if you tell a lie your tongue turns black. She told me a lie and I told her yes, her tongue did turn black. Then she said I am going to go in the bathroom and look in the mirror and lie to myself so I can see it.

Dang, she's too quick!

Coffee and Confession

I love Dunkin Donuts coffee. To be fair, I also enjoy Starbucks. You see I really like my coffe black, so Dunkin Donuts black coffee with Cinnamon flavor is my fave, a big cup is just under $2.00. When it comes to Starbucks, I really don't like to get their coffee black, it's too burnt in flavor, so when I go to starbucks I get the Skinny Cinnamon Dolce Tall, which means that it's all full of skim milk, which makes it,IMO, more of a dessert than a cup of coffee. Plus the Dunkin Donuts is closer to my house and they mail me coupons, so they get more of my business consistently.

When we drove down to my brother's last June I was super suprised to find that highways littered with Starbucks and completely devoid of the Dunkin Donuts! Who knew.

So I am a member of Starbucks Rewards and Dunkin Perks, I really really love coffee.

Last night we went with Patrick to Reconciliation, which is what used to be called confession. It was a family Reconciliation so Tom and I had to reconcil with the priest as well as Patrick. The rest of the 4th grade ER class was there as well as the kids that go to school at OLOR, and we weren't free to leave after confessing, so we were sitting in the Church for about 1 hour waiting for our turn and then waiting for everyone to finish.

During all that waiting time, I was reminded that women can't be priests. And then that made me mad because IMO it's just stupid. Women would be great priests. Married Couples would be great pastors and pastresses. My mom has worked for the catholic church at the church level and the dioceases level (which I don't know how to spell, it's like the state or county level) and she has a masters from Notre Dame and she is always reading and philosophying about the scriptures and all that.

I think she should switch over and be a Lutheran and then she could be a pastor, but that isn't going to happen. Too bad Catholic Church, you are losing out great potential priests because you are ahh, narrow minded, too greedy with power, too antiwomen.

Okay I am done. Now I have to run off to Anna's school!
