Hubby woke up late this morning, and tried to make a dash to work, but about halfway there called and cancelled. So, he's home with me today. On his way back to the house, he stopped by the store and bought Mini and Oldest a copy of the new Cars movie, so I'm sure they'll be busy in front of the TV soon as daddy gets a bite to eat. Oldest is at school, but I know he'll be watching it the minute he's in through the door.
Speaking of Oldest... it's spirit week at school. Yesterday he dressed up as one of the characters from Naruto. Today I got out of bed to find him trying to dress like a hippie. Naruto, I'm not too sure about, hippie, I can do. I raided the closets, found some baggy jeans, a pancho, and went to my jewelry box for a string of love beads--a string I made in high school. Ha! I was too cool for school, no? Anyway, we made a passable hippie out of him, and out the door he went... pinching Mini's fingers in the process. Much kissies fixed the boo-boos, and now I'm finally sitting down with my first cup of coffee.
I'm going to work on my NaNo today. I made it up to 7900 yesterday, but no topping the 8k mark. Ho hum. I'll do it today though, and with hubby home, maybe I can get more writing in than usual. I need to get in as much as possible, because later this week I have to start making plans for Thanksgiving dinner--sorting recipes, making shopping lists. Checking the pantry for what I already have. I am considering baking cranberry cookies for a change from the traditional sugar batch. I'm not sure if I can find the jelly around here, but it's a thought...
