Reading Becca's post on gas, and her son's reaction to the Animaniacs: Vol. 1-3 set has prompted me to do a little extra educational spending. So today, while ordering my school text books on Amazon.com, I added aforementioned DVD set to my cart. Everything should arrive on Friday, just in time for me and Jamie to have an Animaniacs marathon in celebration of his birthday (coming on Sunday), and as a last blow-out for me before school starts back up on Monday. (Jamie went back to school today. Poor thing!)
Another part of our weekend o'fun is a planned surprise trip for me and Stinkbumps to see "The Pirates Who Don't Do Anything" at the movie theatre. Jamie and I have been eagerly awaiting the release of this movie for over a year now. We may even buy the soundtrack to it. I'm going to see if Rachel will let me take Destiny, too (or even if she wants to go see it, too).
Sunday is Jamie's birthday bash at Inflatable Wonderland. I have a feeling I'm going to need a really BIIIIIG dose of Excedrin when it's all said and done. What's important though is that Jamie have fun, and the birthday party is NOT in my home where I have to worry about who's breaking what, how loud the dog is barking, etc. etc. etc. I'm very happy to pay for a party elsewhere if it prevents me from having the worries associated with in-home parties. Jamie is going to freak when he sees what Momma got him this year - however, I won't say what it is here lest he sneak to my blog to see what all I'm writing about him. He's gotten pretty savvy to the fact that Momma talks about him on her blog, and sometimes he isn't too happy about (welcome to the wonderful world of being embarrassed by your momma, kid).
Finally, Jamie's hopes for a Nintendo DS have been dashed by a 66 in reading on his report card. He's been told he'll get one when that sucker comes up to a B or higher. An appointment with Sylvan Learning Center is upcoming. Also, Rachel's aunt Merrilou, who works at the church's school with kids who have learning difficulties, has volunteered to work with Jamie for 20 minutes every week before AWANA. Hopefully, all this helps.
"Okay, I love you. Bye-Bye!"
