Wednesday Brain Dump

1.  Remind the boys that today is Pearl Harbor Day; don't forget.

2.  Listen every morning as Gunnar announces how many days are left until Christmas.  Appreciate that he's excited, but nearly have heart failure on a daily basis, given my level of unpreparedness.  Try to smile, cheerfully.

3.  Achieve this with more difficulty, these last couple of days due to "girl issues".  'Nuff said.  Ugh.

4.  Have managed to get the tree decorated while boys gone at CAP.  Pictures soon eventually.  Normally love doing this, but this time... mustering will-power to leave the couch, hot drink, and heating pad takes more effort.

5.  Am conquering the lethargy, aided by occasional doses of Nutella,  so dangerously good it should probably be a controlled-substance.

6.  Have convinced Wyatt to join me in the chapel's Christmas Choir.  Discovered he's a bass!  Who knew?  Am surprised he agreed to come at all, a situation helped greatly by the choir director's sense of humor as well as after-practice reward = ice cream.

7.  Must dig through gift box and see if that helps the preparedness situation any.

8.  Remember why I'm doing this...  :D

Two words for you: Raspberry Tea {as in the real red raspberry leaf, not flavored} Supposed to be really good for *anyone* with hormones - Rx is one quart/day/person, which we have yet to achieve unless it's per household... {so yes, friend of friend gives it to her sons as well!}

I had forgotten it was Pearl Harbor Day until I heard it on the radio this morning. I'm glad to see another reminder here! I actually got to see Pearl Harbor when we went to Hawaii one year - I was 12 and my dad had free flights and a free condo. It was amazing, and a very somber experience to stand on the Arizona Memorial.

You have a box too? It comes in handy on occasion. Hang in there my friend. You'll get it all done. And if you don't will it really matter in the whole scheme of things? I'll be praying for you!

I love your brain dumps - they are a great peek into the way you think :-)
