Cayenne Peppers Monday, Aug 18 2008 

We learned a lesson this week. Cayenne peppers and kids doesn’t mix. We’ve been growing some peppers in our garden this summer, so I let the girls go pick some. The next day Rachel decided to try one. ( oh, yes! ) Poor kid, she started screaming its burning my mouth. One large glass of ice water and one large glass of milk later the pain finally cooled down a little but then her lips started burning.  Rachel said, ” I think my lips are going to explode!” Well, finally all of that passed and all is well except bad mommy forgot to make her wash her hands. You know whats coming, we got pepper in her eyes.. twice… I guess because it is pepper oils on your skin it is hard to wash off.. It was a miserable painful night!! Needless to say, We have learned our lesson!!

Rachel said her room would be much cooler if she had her own mini-fridge. Why is my four year old asking for a fridge?

Little Dooey’s Tuesday, Mar 25 2008 

We went to Little Dooey’s… We miss Little Dooey’s so much! For those who don’t know, Starkville Mississippi has the absolutely best BBQ in the world! When we lived in Starkville, anytime people would come to visit we would take them to Little Dooey’s , of course they would be hooked.. They would come back just to eat at Little Dooey’s.

Well good for us someone has opened a franchise of it, a little outside of Charlotte. Yeah… North Carolina!! So this weekend we went to go try and it tasted just like it. It was a little weird eating Dooey’s off of china instead of red plastic trays, but it was awesome!


Education Tuesday, Feb 26 2008 

I’m trying to figure what I want out my children’s education. I’m reading different presidential hopefuls opinions on what we should do with the educational system. To tell you the truth I just don’t know.. Do we need free preschool for everyone? Do we want free preschool? Should preschool be mandated?
How are my kids going to be competitive in a global economy? What skills and knowledge should they possess?  How can I make that kind of knowledge accessible.
Ok, so maybe I’m thinking about this way to much for a boring Monday night.. but I just wanted to put it out there.

We have the flu!! Friday, Feb 22 2008 

Natalie came down with the flu on Tuesday.. She had a really high fever for 3 days.. Today,( Friday) We sent her back to school and Rachel woke up with a fever.. Round Two! I’ve been stuck in this house all week with sick kids and now I have a few more days to go. I can’t wait to get out!

I also can’t wait til Spring time.. I’m so looking forward to walks to parks and just plain being outside. I don’t know if we will do a garden this year though. There is a drought here so I don’t know if I will be able to water the plants if I put them in the ground.
