Martin Luther King weekend

We've been kind of loghy this weekend. Is that a real word? I don't even know how to spell it. It is with a long o and a hard g. So it wouldn't be 'loggy'. Anyway, I think Rick made it up. It means when you don't have any energy and you just kind of lie around in a daze. Rick has been pretty loghy. He napped a lot and watched lots of football. He and Becky did attempt to build a catapult but the boys were pretty much glued to the computer screen and didn't take much interest. Sean has discovered puzzles at the miniclips site. The catupult building came to a halt when we realized that we didn't have any string. How can there be no string in the house????

Saturday night Rick took me out to dinner at this high end steak house. I assumed because it was high end they didn't use MSG. Wrong!!!! I was sick, sick, sick all night Saturday and had a bad migraine until Sunday afternoon. I've eaten there in the past and don't recall any problems. Hmmm. Anyway, we didn't make it to Mass until 5:30 at a different parish. That means that we've only gone to our own parish once for the teen mass since New Years. I hate it when we start doing this. I like going to my own parish. It makes me feel part of it. But since we keep going to Sunday evening masses we tend to roam around to various other parishes. Next week I'm determined we'll get back to Sunday morning masses at St. Mark.

Today, Monday, Becky and Rick made dog treats. Tillie loves them! I have never seen Rick do any baking before!! Becky is such a competent little cook. She loves baking and cooking.

Rick took Becky and Sean to see Dog Hotel which they loved. I haven't heard any detail from Rick about it yet.

I cleaned out (somewhat) the boys' room. There must have been a hundred books shoved under their beds. I also did lots of laundry today, maybe six loads so far.

Will and Josh had math today with the tutor in spite of the MLK holiday. And we started working on our Latin homework tonight. Latin is usually on Tuesdays but this week it is moved to Wed with much homework to do.

Okay, that's all I can think of right now. I'm boring myself!!!!!

Only one hundred? Sometimes I think I need the Dewey Decimal System to organize all the books I find under the kids' beds.
