Monday and Back to Work

I never had an opportunity to blog yesterday. After church, Bob and I went to Great China for lunch. When I got home I worked on the congregational newsletter. Then I worked up the bulletin for next Sunday, when I preside. I discovered I had inadvertently left Greg and Johnna out of the new congregational directory so I edited that page and added them. Next time I have Karan stitch up a couple of directories, I will have them in there.  I don't know how I left them out of the ones I've already printed off and distributed. I need to send Johnna a birthday card from the congregation. Her birthday is Friday. I gave Leslie hers from me at church yesterday but will send one from the congregation too.

Then I went out to Wal Mart and bought new ink cartridges and a few groceries.  My computer had warned me the ink was low.

Later, just about the time I got all that finished, Bob came over to watch 60 Minutes. After he left, I took my bath and sat in the recliner with Missy until I started falling asleep...then I just got up and went to bed.

Today, for lunch, we will have that chicken and potato casserole, a veggie and a salad. This evening I will bake my cake for tomorrow.  I will ice it in the morning. Phyllis already brought me hers and I had Bob take it home and put it in his freezer. I will probably remind Karan about her cake at exercise class this morning.

I don't know what Katie will have me doing at work today. I think she leaves tomorrow for a vacation so I doubt she will have me scanning bar codes while she's gone.  I will have a ton of DVDs to put away this morning.  Adrian was telling me Friday how huge that job was. I told him there was a solution to that and he said "What?" I said we could limit each child to just one DVD each over the weekend or one per family. He said that would violate the five DVD each policy. I told him policy could be changed.

You see, I think it is a tragedy that children are not reading anymore.  They spend their weekend watching  one video after another. Their parents aren't much better as I can tell by the hundreds of returning DVDs every Monday.  Instead of reading and improving their reading skills and using their imagination while reading, they just are hypnotized by these videos.  What a shame! It's a baby sitting thing. They set their children down in front of the TV, give them five DVDs each, and ignore them the rest of the day that way. And we wonder why children and their parents are so obese. They get little or no exercise.

More later...

you are one busy lady....don't change your ink cartridge until it's actually out of ink. I know this because mine warns me way ahead of time yet I still manage to use the existing cartridge for quite awhile!

I agree about the reading ! The thing is that reading also helps with spelling. You get used to seeing words and even if you are not sure how to spell a word later on you can tell if it is not spelled correctly because you have seen it before, in print.

I agree. Reading is so important.

I wait until the cartridge was completely empty before I change it. I just want to have new ones on hand so in case something I am printing is important, I can still print it.
