The month of thanks has begun -

Well tonight has been pretty much a Norman Rockwell night, with the exception of the fact that my house is a mess.  None of those Norman Rockwell paintings showed a pile of laundry, and dirty dishes that I can remember, but all in all it's been a nice evening.  How could it not be?  I finally found a pair of shoes that Simon can't get off no matter what (at least so far)  His bus driver will be so pleased - no more flying nikes past his head, and no more socks landing on the dash.  Boy the ride will sure be boring now! 

Norman would have loved painting the picture of Simon falling asleep with a toy in his hand, and sitting upright just a few moments ago, I could almost visualize the   Z Z Z Z Z's floating up into the air. 

Norman could also paint the scene that is occurring right this second, as I type I can hear my daughter sneaking cookies in the kitchen...let's see she just sat down hiding a bowl under her sweatshirt...hmm hold on I need to go count.  One, two, three....nine!  She snuck 9 cookies!  Oh she is her mother's daughter.  I'll let her keep 2, I'll just have to take care of the rest, hee hee.

Dan is off at one of his many meetings tonight, and he will return soon.  Then we will enter whirlwind mode as he packs for being out of town for the rest of the week, and I get as many odds and ends done as I can to prepare for being a 'single parent' for awhile.  Come on Norman, I have a full load for the next few days...keep the warm fuzzy's coming if you would.  I appreciate it!  And Dear God, thanks for making Norman!
