Drum Roll Please...

This past week we got our preliminary TAKS Reading results back.  No scores, just pass/fails...  And the results were...

They passed!  Woo! Hoo!  What a weight lifted off my shoulders!

Spring break ends today.  I am sad.  I wish I had some more time off.  I spent a lot of my time working on the house.  It is nice to have a clean house though.  I have enjoyed sitting in it.  haha  :)  On Friday, we headed to Kilgore for the weekend.  It was a nice trip.  The girls enjoyed being around their cousins.  Last night we went to Big Pines Lodge at Lake Caddo.  It was a nice night.  We had to wait a while, like you always do when you do there, but it was nice.  The girls had never seen whole fried catfish and were just amazed by the bones.  They were kinda funny.  I had to finally tell Whit that she couldn't walk around with the fish skeleton.  When we left Whit went with Nana and Papaw while Ally went with Uncle Don and Aunt Claudia.  She ended up spending the night at their house since Bailey, her cousin, and a friend were staying the night.  I was really happy to hear they all got along and had a good time.  Ally definitely enjoyed herself.  

Overall, we had a good spring break.  I am a little refreshed and ready to tackle work tomorrow, but I am still counting down until the next break!

Much love!

Spring Break is here!

Spring break officially started for me today at 3:00.  I couldn't have been happier to see arrive as I was today.  I so need a break from the daily grind.  Sometimes that just wears a girl out.  That and stupid people.  I won't get into that though.  It's a long, boring story that involves too many people....   Just note -- I am tired of stupidity.   I wish people would think just a little before they do things... Enough of that...  On to the next topic...

I have a few goals for spring break.  I am making my official list here.

*Work out -- we have boot camp only on Wednesday.  I think I'll take advantage of the free week at Snap and work out there too.  Kelly is prolly going to do it too so it should be fun.  
*Work on the house -- these wood floors need some TLC, plenty of laundry to catch up on, and a little spring cleaning....  OH!  And I am officially cleaning Whit's room.  She's not going to have much left when I get done....hopefully it won't look like a tornado scene anymore if she doesn't have as much to string out.
*Create something -- not sure what yet.  I'll have to see what mood hits me....
*Take a couple of naps -- right now I am so tired that just sounds really nice!

I think I am getting sick.  I hate being sick.  It sucks.  Hopefully, I won't be sick the entire spring break.  I think right now it is just a head cold though.  I need to get some medicine in me so it will clear up.  

Tomorrow is Ally's birthday party.  She has invited 5 friends to U Paint It to paint ceramic stuff.  Not sure what they'll paint yet, but she is excited.  One friend is spending the night tonight.  Harper and Allison are like 2 Peas in a Pod.  I'll get some pictures tomorrow and upload them as soon as I can.  

Now, let's talk about dog pee.  I am tired of it.  Every time it rains my dogs don't want to go outside.  What the hell?????  Are they retarded?  No.  They actually think they are human and neither one likes to be outside in the weather.  They are going to have to get over this or they will be in doggy jail for a very long time....

Not a lot of news in the Lackey household this week.  Allison's steri-strips and dermabond came off this week and her forehead looks pretty good.  As a matter of fact, it kinda looks like a scratch. Should heel up nicely.  She also had her 4th grade program last night.  She had several speaking parts, a dancing part, and was a song leader....gasp!  She was so cute.  She kept "posing" for me whenever she'd see me trying to get a picture.  I'll have to post pictures of that too.  

I am going to bed now.  It is late and I am exhausted.  This week was the longest week ever.  And, today was the longest day in history.   That and its cold and rainy...  What a way to start spring break!

Photo Post

Okay, so last post I said I'd get some pictures up here. Here they are...

The first two pictures were taken by the girls. I really like them. I have been wanting some with the girls and this was on my birthday. We left school early and went home to wait on Mike to get home so we could go to Wings. These pics are the result! :)

This is a picture of my hair. I put the red streaks in my hair on Valentine's Day. I really like the results. Needless to say, I'll prolly get them again when these fade out. They are fun... I think they fit my personality... :)

Me and Kelly. She is way fun! We had a lot of fun this night. It was nice to get out and do something with friends.

I don't think this picture needs a lot of explanation. This is Whitney. She has an 8 year old attitude. The end...

Me and Ally cheesin' together. She is a crack-up. She LOVES to pose for pictures. Or just get in them....

Mike prolly wouldn't like it if he knew I put this picture of him on here. I like it though. And I think this is a kinda cool picture. We were in the Katy Mall after Ally's swim meet in Jan. The place in the background was like a 50's soda shop. They had hamburgers and stuff. The food wasn't all that great but it was fun.

This is Ally's arm. At meets, the kids get their heat number and lane number written on their arms so they can keep up with when they swim. It also helps the swim officials get them where they need to go. She thought this was really cool.

Allison and Ryan. This is my friend Kelly's daughter. (She's in the picture with me a couple pictures above this one.) They both swam in the 50 freestyle at the January meet. They actually don't compete against each other because they are in different age brackets. (They are only a year apart in school and age though.) They were both nervous, but they were so cute. They buddied up that day.

This has been a busy week. We had our Reading TAKS test at school this past Tuesday. That day alone is enough to wear a girl out. My kids were really good. I can't wait to see their scores. Wednesday was my birthday. Ate at Wings-N-More with the Provacek's. Thursday was a pretty normal day and Friday was fun day at school so the kids got to watch a movie and play games. They had fun but it seemed like a long day! Glad that the weekend is here....

More later. Much love!
