Boogers...are they safe/healthy to eat?

So, I'm sitting here at my computer and I feel the need to google boogers. Don't ask me why...because I truly don't know. Maybe it's because over 1/2 of the class at preschool has had a fasination lately with their nose, maybe it's because I need a kleenex, maybe it's just because I felt like it. Anyway, I googled booger and here's what I got.

What is a booger?
What is a booger made of?

Then I googled one of the top ten questions of probably every mother of a young child...Is it safe to eat a booger? Like I said, over 1/2 of our class has this obsession right now. So, I got some really weird answers.

My favorite although it took me nowhere was: Strange body facts, are boogers safe to eat and how do astronauts poop in space.

So, did I get my question answered? No, but I did have a very entertaining few minutes.

Boogers...who knew?

Anniversary Dinner...

Today is my 7 year anniversary. DH and I have been together for 11 years though. We actually got married on our "anniversary" so today is our 7-11 anniversary. I thought it appropriate to visit our local 7-11 to celebrate.

My son could not have been more excited! He literally told everyone who would listen today that we were going to 7-11 for dinner. People looked at him like he was nuts. Good thing he's only 5 right?

So, we went to 7-11 and had our big bites, nachos and slurpees and our total for the entire "meal" was just over $12. Not too bad if I do say so.

The best part of the whole evening though was when we were all finished eating (in the car) my DH got out to throw out the trash and my son says to me "Mama, I love anniversary food!" He made my whole day.

Side note: we really are going to an all adult dinner, next week when my mom is visiting....but I really did want to do something fun and quirky for our actual anniversary and my son got to participate. A good time was had by all and that's what matters most.

Have any of you had a silly yet memorable anniversary?

Gimme a F...R...I...E...D! What does that spell?

FRIED! That's my brain!

I'm so excited to report that my life is back to normal, as normal as it goes really.

Our preschool auction is over and we brought in about $4000! Thank you very much! We rocked the socks off that auction!

It's officially spring break next week and we've survived two field trips in the past two weeks. I'm ready to stay at home and be the "stay at home mom" that I'm supposed to be. The past few weeks I was beginning to feel like the "run around mom".

My DS and I cleaned out his room today and moved a few items around. He has soo much more space now it's unbelievable. I'm hoping this will inspire him to play in his room more and leave my living room in one piece. Wish me luck on that one. We packed away some of the "baby" stuff and opted to keep the cool big kid toys like Transformers out and move them to a bigger bucket.

All in all, I'm hoping this weeked will be pretty low key. We do need to start tackling the spare room/office/dog's bedroom and clean it out for an upcomming visit from Granny (my Mom). But that should only take a day or so.

Enjoy your weekend.

One more week!

Only one more week until my life returns to normal! I've been completely buried in my son's preschool auction and it is finally over next week Saturday. Thank goodness! I don't know how much more my hubby is willing to put up with. Every day he comes home at lunch, he finds me on the computer with a phone stuck to my ear actively trying to procure yet another item to auction off. I must say though, I have learned a lot about our local businesses in the process. It has been fun but I am so ready for it to be history! So, until next week...
