Super Secret Shannon

I've been a little (ok, a lot) bad about posting lately. We've had so much going on that my head has been spinning. Trying to find a way to help the kids get away from their father has really taken a toll. We were suppose to meet with diversion on the 3rd of this month. It got moved to the 6th due to a scheduling conflict on their part. Now it's been moved to the 21st because I guess my asshole ex-husband just can't seem to make it on the 6th. Grrr. On the upside though, the weather this past week has been absolutely amazing. We've been outside until dinner time and then back out until it's time to shower and put the kids to bed. Yesterday we wandered all over town for about 2 hours just soaking up the sun and breathing in the spring air. We even got the bikes out early yesterday evening and went for a ride. I didn't feel like cooking last night so we went to McDonald's (McDondald's if your Dailaesse) for our Friday night Filet o' Fish. We pulled up to the drive thru and I asked Dailaesse what she wanted for dinner. Her normal response is chicken, french fries, bbq sauce and a Coke. Not last night. She wanted soup. Broccoli and cheddar soup to be more specific. And a Filet o' Fish. Oh and a Sprite too please. I asked if she was sure. Yup. She was. We got home and she climbed up to the table and started eating. She ate all her dinner. This is the kid who usually eats 2 chicken nuggets and a few fries and is full. I was shocked. We wandered over to my parents after dinner and she told them what she had. My mother gave me a strange look and I shrugged my shoulders and told her she ate it all. She asked Dailaesse how she liked it. "It was absolutely delicious Nana." Little peanut.

In Secret Pal 7 news...

I have been spoiled like crazy for the past few months by Shannon of http://missprissknits.com/. Stop by her blog if you have time. She is an amazing woman. She has just turned 30 and still does roller derby. How cool is that??? She truly kept me smiling for the past few months. I couldn't have asked for a more wonderful pal! Thank you so much Shannon!!! I appreciate you so very much!!!

I was also very fortunate to have a wonderful pal to spoil. Kate of http://rhymeswithorange.typepad.com/ was my spoilee and I so enjoyed getting to know her as well. She's a wonderfully strong young woman who's just married a man in the Air Force. She is living in Japan far away from her family in Michigan while her hubby is in Afghanistan. She's currently playing hostess to her mom who was lucky enough to be able to fly to Japan to spend some time with her and her kitty Piper. Drop by and check out her blog. She's got some gorgeous photos of Japan to share. Thanks once again Kate for allowing me the great opportunity to spoil you! I look forward to staying in touch!

I'm cracking up at the McDonald's order. My son does strange stuff like that sometimes too. I think it's to keep me on my toes.

You have been so kind and generous to my daughter, there are not words to thank you. I may appreciate you even more than she does, if that's possible! lol

It's been wonderful getting to know you behind Katy's back as you queried me about her wants/needs. I took all sorts of curly hair products with me to Japan...her response? "Thanks, but my SP somehow managed to find and send me everything I could possibly want."

Kerry, you're awesome! I hope this next SP goes as well as SP7 did. Think back just a bit, to SP5. Rox hosted that one...entirely by herself, with almost 600 people. And now ther are 15 hostesses. Someone go give that girl a round of applause...

And take a bow yourself. It's a tough and often thankless job. Know that there are many of us that *do* appreciate you!

Blessings,
~Susie
