What We've Been Up to Wednesday.

This past week wasn't all that great of a week. 

All of us were sick sometime during the week.  Hannah seems to have gotten the worst of it as her sickness usually always go straight to her tonsils (which the doctors won't take out). 

Dave had to stay at the room that his company provides for drivers twice this past week because of breakdowns. 

I feel  Last Monday and scrapped up both my hand and my phone.  On Tueday I shut the car door on my thumb and I caught the  cold that the girls so graciously shared with me (I taught my kids to share but there are some things that I wouldn't mind if they were selfish with like colds.  LOL).  and I lost my debit card (nothing like gettting all the way through the checkout line at Walmart and discover that you don't have your card.  Luckily it was at 7 am so not a huge amount of people in line behind me to witness my embarrasment).

After Faith so graciously shared her cold with everyone in the family she had a good week because she started the new year of teaching class.  She is teaching seven classes this year and really enjoyed the first week.

As I said above Hannah had the worst of the cold.  She missed her second week of Homeschool group and didn't volunteer at the library this week.  She also didn't go to youth group.  She did do some school this week but not much.  Hopefully this week will be better. 

I have been doing most of my blogging for both my book blog and here on Saturday and scheduling the posts for through out the week.  I have the most time on Saturday most of the time so this is a great way to do this.  I tweak things through out the week but do most of the writing on Saturday.  It is so nice to have a post posted everyday without having to worry about it but one day a week. 

Speaking of my book blog, I have signed up for the Fall into Reading challenge.  You can read the post about my plans here.  I hope to finish one book every week, and audio book every two weeks and a book on my Kindle every three weeks. 

What have you been up to?

Beauty and the Beast Live on Stage, Hollywood Studios, Walt Disney World...

When we were at Disney World we saw this.  It was my favorite show of all the ones we saw.  Well worth the time to watch.

Video Clips

Sorry for all the video clip posts but I figured out how to get the clips to post right and I wanted to post the clips but not the entire past posts.  Enjoy the clips if you want or not. 

The Ten Commandments (1956) - Trailer

Love Finds Andy Hardy - Trailer (1938)

Rhoda TV show Season 1 Theme

The Cosby Show Bloopers

Walt Disney Cartoons Mickey Mouse Donald Duck & Goofy Boat Builder...

The Windy City from Calamity Jane (1953)

I think I figured out how to get the videos to work.  Yeah!!

This was out movie for the weekend.  It is alot like Annie Get Your Gun (it even has Howard Keel as Wild Bill Hickok, he was Buffalo Bill Cody in Annie)  I think that Annie was the better movie but this was fun in it's own way.   Doris Day played Calamity Jane.

What a Week!!

I have been on vacation all week and I have done absolutely nothing this week. It has been eventful again this week as we have gone through tons of rain from Hurricane Lee and had massive flooding in the area. We live on a hill and did not have to deal with any of the flooding but we did have a leaky roof. I was glad that I didn;t have to drive an any of the flooded areas. My husband drove home on Wednesday and had a hard time getting out of the city he works in. He didn't have any load Thursday night and is currently doing two runs with a 10 hour break in between. He will not be home until around midnight tonight. My daughter's car lost a belt on her way home from work on Thursday so since it would cost her more to fix it than it was worth (other things were wrong with it) she decided to junk it. She is currently without a car for now but we will loan her one of ours until she can save up a bit more money for a decent down payment. Hannah started homeschool group this week and seems to reallly enjoy her classes especially her art class. We are slowly getting back into the routine of things.
