the violin saga continues.....

I woke up yesterday to the sound of Claire playing (or attempting) to play her violin. NOW I am offering her $100 if she will let me buy it back!

She doesn't want to sell it to me. "The strings are made of real horse hair!" Claire says, which was apparently part of Olivia's sales pitch.

.....................hmmmm this is getting out of hand.

Something doesn't sound quite right.....

Olivia has asked to start Karate lessons. Mark and I reminded her that she started and quit violin lessons over the summer. AFTER I bought her a violin, had some work done on it and was out about $100. So, I agreed that if she could sell the violin and get back my $100, I would agree to her re-investing the money in Karate lessons/uniform.

Tonight: Olivia enters the room to say she has sold the violin. "Sold?" I said. "Yea, I sold it to Claire! I asked her if she wanted to buy it and she said yes."

So now what we have is a huge mess! Claire is playing a violin. Olivia thinks she is starting Karate lessons. Mom is STILL out $100 bucks.

sigh.....I don't know how I get into these messes!

Don't judge me!

I will confess.

I fed my babies cupcakes for breakfast this morning. Only because I was up at 5:30am to make cupcakes for Olivia's class (and I ain't talkin' no box of Betty Crocker! Scratch cupcakes with scratch frosting). After finishing the cupcakes, I made their lunches to pack. I just did not have it in me to do gravy and biscuits........sigh. So I gave in and yes, let them eat cupcakes for breakfast.

Don't judge ME though because how different is a cupcake from a Krispy Kreme Donut? And we have AAAAALLLLLL done that.:)

mmmmmmmmmmmm did I just say Krispy Kreme? Wish I had one of those!
