Now I'm sitting here wondering just HOW he knows that TLC is the channel with Honey Boo Boo. Hmmmmmmmmmm
This morning, in the car on the way to school, Martin got a text from a friend of his (who happens to be half-English) who was in a panic about an impending English test. "HELP ME," she wrote, and then:
Everything i need
to know in English!!
Ive np* test its like
ninth grade all over
again :'( dome to fail
Martin wrote back correcting all her spelling and added, "Dome to fail? Yes, yes you are." and then we giggled madly for 15 minutes straight in the car until I dropped him off.
Karin was home sick today for the second day in a row (cold, sore throat). This is the seventh time she's been sick with a sore throat since the start of this year. We are keeping track in order to have ammunition for going back to the doctor with proof that she's getting sore throats way too often. I'm kind of angry that she has to be sick this much in order to prove that she's sick this much. I don't know exactly what they can do for chronic sore throats, but I suspect taking out her tonsils might be a start, DOCTOR.
I just sent out the email to everyone that is invited to Thanksgiving with the logistics, menu assignments and date confirmation. If everyone comes, we'll have 28 people, plus at least one dog with the possibility for THREE more. Eek! I need to remind Anders to book the rental of the table and chairs and I need to go buy stuffing!! My stomach is growling just thinking about it. Mmmm STUFFING!
I've been nagging Karin about her clothes storage system for awhile now, because it makes me crazy. When I tell her to pick up her room or put clothes away, she just stuffs everything into drawers and onto shelves and everything she owns is a wrinkled mess. She can't even shut most of the drawers of her dresser. I'm on the verge of just emptying them into a garbage bag, but my mom did that once to my brother (with toys, not clothes) and warned me it was a bad idea. Still...TEMPTED. Nagging isn't helping, and I really want her to do it because if I cave in and do it for her like I've done in the past, she will never learn and it will just be a big giant mess again a week later. Where's Mrs Piggle-Wiggle when I need her?
