Today will be a good day. I am getting my hair cut (FINALLY!!) and heading to Target. My Target, how I miss it. I wish there was a Target Lottery and the winner won a shopping spree....wouldn't that be nice? I could do a lot of damage with a 5-minute spree in Target....

reindeer, mice and tests...oh my!
1. Adam is OBSESSED with Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer.....so much so that he forced me to buy the most obnoxious Christmas toy that sings...and it's LOUD, people.....I don't know what's more noteworthy: that it sings VERY loudly or that I paid FULL price. But it's a Christmas toy and Adam is beyond THRILLED. He sang himself to sleep last night singing the Rudolph song...
2. I was walking through my kitchen the other day and saw a mouse. a MOUSE, folks...I had great restraint and didn't scream...Our house is an old one (85 years old....) and mice are relatively common in our neck of the woods. But it freaked me out. I actually went and bought traps. Micaela was lecturing me about respecting life and I shouldn't kill the mouse (She has seen Ratatouille (2007) just one too many times, I fear...) I don't like mice, I want it gone.
3. Today, I am testing the kids, comprehensively. On all of the spelling words and math skills they've acquired in the last 12 weeks. Fun stuff..
Let me share this with you:
