Two Lists and Other Stuff

Yesterday I made supper for 12
very hungry high school girls.
Lara's basketball team.
Let me tell ya.
Those girls can eat.

They ate:
40 rolls
60 meatballs
nearly 2 9x13 pans of potato casserole
2 bags of salad
12 chocolate chip cookie ice cream sandwiches
(I only gave them one each of those,
I wanted something left for me my family to enjoy.)


So I was busy at our house.

But my other kids had things going on too.
All at the same time.
Except Jobie.
He's too little to have much of a social/activity calendar.
Yet.
So he got to spend time with Grandma.

I had everything arranged for the kids.
Until late Monday night.
Brookelynn, Jake and Ezra.
All three of their plans/activities changed a little.

It took:
4 emails
8 facebook messages
8 phone calls
25 text messages
To get things in order again.

That is crazy.
Ridiculous.

My hair would have been sticking out.
If it had any body to it.
Instead Jobie's hair felt the strain I guess.But I was able to watch the last 45 minutes
of the Biggest Loser last night.
That show makes me cry every week.
3 of the 5 of us who were home were crying.

What show makes you cry?

You make me smile!

Any show where someone has to go home makes me cry. I hate watching someone "lose" and have to go home. I want everyone to be a winner.

I love Biggest Loser! But I have to dvr it and watch later.

I can't stand the drama and the waiting and the beeping.
