Ready, Set, Dine

Once a week isn't too often to bore you is it???

This past week was very busy with work, planning, doing and not much else. There weren't any great inspiring stories come from this week or anything especially funny. My dialogues with children have begun to feel mundane which is a sign of January passing and February in full swing without a break scheduled until March. I sigh.

The routine is broken up with busy-ness away from the job. Robert and I have several dinners to attend. We went to the first of these last night. It was the Junior Service League Charity Ball. An annual event where everyone gets to dress up and pretend for one brief moment we don't live in the boonies where the normal dress is jeans, tee shirts and boots. A picture of us taken quickly before leaving the house is posted below.

The next events on the calendar make this next week hectic also. A quick trip to Victoria on Monday after school for a dental appointment for Robert and a search for some small glass salt and pepper shakers to use at the church Valentine Banquet.

We are (I'm) hosting a table at the banquet so I'm responsible for decorting said table including having salt, pepper, sugar and sweetner for eight. Not a big problem, but I thought it would be nice if I had at least two sets, maybe four. Then I also have to finish designing and printing the place cards for the guest who will be sitting at my table. I know who two couple are because I invited them to sit with me. The fourth couple is an at large or random couple who plans to attend, but either wasn't invited by a hostess or chose to sit random. I'm actually looking forward to this --- hopefully the table will look like I envision it. All this will be set up Saturday morning -- Feb. 14-- Next Saturday.

The other dinner we have to attend actually happens this week also. It will be Thursday evening. It is the Lions Club annual Ladies' Night. A nice time will be had and all I have to do is show up. Of course, my delimma is what to wear. Smile -- that is always my delimma.

I think I will have to be very serious about dieting the 15- the 28th if I'm to lose my 4 pounds this month.

You and your Mister make a handsome couple. If that picture is recent - I wouldn't worry too much about losing weight.
