So my busy day continued when Big Boy called from school and told me that he indeed qualified for the National Honor Society (which I was shocked to find out btw). So now this meant a day full of driving around getting signatures. I went to 5 places yesterday hunting down John Hancock after John Hancock. It was like a scavenger hunt with the end prize being a possible academic future for my teenager. T got the last two signatures this morning and just turned in the application 5 short hours before the deadline. I found it funny when T related to me a conversation he had with BBoy on the drive to seminary this morning. He asked our son "did you tell your mother thanks for all her hard work yesterday on your behalf?" and his answer was "yes I did" (which is true). But then he went on with "you know Dad I am the one who did most of the work on that not mom" HA! I'm going to have to beat him with a wet noodle when he gets home.

All I can say is that I am glad I planned ahead and made dinner in the crock pot. We've had friends (without kids) who poo poo the crock pot saying it's not real food if it comes from a crock pot. But it has saved me on more than one occasion. I pity the poor fool who never opens themselves up the the possibilities of a crock pot.
The dilemma of the day today is choosing a scary, but not too scary movie for the surprise party I am throwing for middle boy this weekend. He is turning 14. He is too old for Ichabod and too young for lots of stuff out there. We are a family who likes to be scared. We especially like older scary Alfred Hitchcock movies. We want to show them The Village but it might be too much for some of the guests. Our other choices we rented are Dial M for Murder and Abbot and Costello meet Frankenstein. What would your vote be? Help me out and leave an opinion... Or give me a suggestion. I just found out that some younger kids will be there too so I am leaning towards Abbot and Costello. But we are planning an outdoor movie on a projector so we can always put the sensitive kiddos inside. Is that poor party etiquette?
