here is a glimpse of what cookie day is all about.
There are 2 semis to take care of all the cookie orders in our area. That is a lot of cookies. I would attempt the math, but I think my head would explode. There is a lovely group of teamsters who load the boxes into your car. Which is a good thing, because there's NO WAY I could get 75 cases into my car. It's like an intricate jigsaw puzzle, but they got every last case in there.
Then I bring the cookies home and lug them into the house, or this time, the garage. I figured why bring them all the way in, when I would just have to carry them out again? And why did it take me 4 years to figure this out?
Next, I sort them into the girls' orders. I count and double count, and hope that there are as many boxes of cookies as there are supposed to be. Usually this works.
The moms & girls pick up their cookies. Everyone is happy.
And then I get to rest.

the entire cardi. The color is a little off here. It's really rusty and nice.

My feline layer is also good at providing entertainment. At this moment he is trying to chew the knitting layer.

Here is a shot of his cheeky buns, complete with lil' heart. I was gonna put it on front but it would have been somewhere in the middle of his body. So in the back it went.
He found a little sunbeam and is sunbathing.

If you are the dog, you bark loudly at boys throwing the ball in the house, and try to chase it down, in case it decides to attack a family member. You never know when this might happen.
If you are the mom, you quickly insert your iPod ear buds and turn them up loud, so that you can pretend you are home alone, enjoying a peaceful afternoon. It helps if you can go into another room.

Today is report card day. I remember how anxious I would be on report card day, and then later when I was in high school, how anxious I would be to come home because they mailed them. Would I get to it first? Would I have some explaining to do? I was a decent student, but had my problems in certain areas (hello, trigonometry).
