Did you realize that tomorrow is December 1st? DECEMBER??!!!!! My mother is done Christmas shopping. I haven't even THOUGHT it about it yet.

December is usually absolutely chaotic - I don't think I'm ready for December. DECEMBER??!!!! Did it sneak the fuck up on anyone else, or is it just me?

I think my kids know the minutes until Santa comes (which reminds me that we really need to have THE SANTA TALK with my 9 year old... DREADING!!!!) But, I didn't realize that tomorrow was DECEMBER.

Crap... I better get busy... Right after I finish watching this TV show...

I have a fever. And it's NOT the fever for the flavor of a Pringle. I have had a nagging, niggling cold for the past week and a half - today, it got nasty. It's in my head, it's in my chest... Urgh... Actually last night, I started running a fever and I haven't felt good all day. Advil helps.

Anyway, I'm going to go curl up under a quilt and read my book (currently I'm reading The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo by Steig Larsson - I'm about 3/4ths of the way through it and while it's quite the page turner, it's also pretty gruesome.

Random Pictures

Here are a few random pictures that I have taken (or had taken) in the last couple of weeks:

This is at Bubba's soccer party. They went bowling. This was an interesting shot with the bowling ball in the air - they're supposed to be airborne - right?

Jasmine has it in the bag:

Here is a picture of our Thanksgiving table yesterday.

The only thing that brings all three kitties together is a little bit of leftover turkey:

Here are a few of our family pictures that we took last weekend:

She's getting more and more beautiful by the day:

Oh, we're gonna have trouble with this one when he gets older.

So - there is my family, and a little glimse into our life these last few weeks.

Happy Thanksgiving!

I hope everyone in the US had a wonderful and filling Thanksgiving. And if you aren't from the US - I hope that you had a good day too and had something delicious to eat.

I'm still stuffed. It was just Hubby, Prissy and Bubba and I here at the Chalet. We missed our extended family, but it was also nice to have a small Thanksgiving.

Right now, while we are all still digesting - Bubba is playing on the computer. I'm blogging on my work computer and Hubby and Prissy are playing Rock Band. I get called over every once in a while to sing a song (if neither one of them can pass it.)

I'm sipping on a rum and diet coke. And just feeling very serene.

He better run!!!

Today, as we were leaving from a little jaunt to pick up some arts and
crafts, we saw a turkey making a break for it. He better run!!! There
was a grocery store right across the street.

What is up with all the turkeys running around here? Did a local farm
have a breakout? This is just weird.

Not much to Update

I do not have too much to update on tonight. I worked from home on Monday - while the kids tried to entertain themselves. I went in to work today - and got quite a bit done today. Then, I will work from home tomorrow. That's what happens when the kids are out of school and there is no vacation time left. :)

I went to Taekwondo tonight, and it was fun. But, I'm a bit sore from all the exercising that I've been doing lately. Part of me feels good that I've been exercising, but the other part is just sore...

Hubby is going to bake a pumpkin pie tomorrow. WOOHOO! His pumpkin pie is about the best thing in the entire world. It's actually my favorite food from thanksgiving. YUMMY!

See, told you I didn't have much to update tonight.

I Guess I'll Try This Too

Ok -

It's almost time to hit the annual diet. Here is how things go:

  • After Thanksgiving I hit it hard and diet like crazy (taking off for Christmas and New Years)
  • I drop a good amount of weight (but NEVER EVER to my goal weight) and I'm looking decent by March-ish where my pants are all too big.
  • I maintain through about July.
  • I start creeping up through August, September, October and November I'm back to where I was.
  • Rinse and Repeat

I usually do Weight Watchers. This year, I got a GoWear Fit device that sits on my tricep that measures how many calories I burn (it seems surprisingly accurate.) I got it from Amazon - it's cheaper.

Anyway, I also signed up for a Sparkpeople account (which is free) - and so far - that seems REALLY REALLY COOL! Things are broken into small goals, and you earn "points" for doing certain things. I'm seriously addicted to earning POINTS so, this might be a good thing for me. There are virtual trophies! And shiny things added to my page! I haven't started my official "diet" yet. I'm still eating bad, but I've started exercising again. It actually feels quite good. I'm really sore though. :)

So - my goal is to

  1. Hit my goal weight by next May.
  2. Keep at my goal weight through December.

dang... seems like a daunting challenge right now.

Why did the Turkey Cross the Road?

Yesterday, Prissy and I were driving to the library. I was driving down a neighborhood street that has a golf course nestled in between houses. It also crosses a street (so, as you drive down the street on the right you see house, house, golf course, house on the left side of the street you also see house, house golf course, house.)

Anyway... we were driving down the street about 30 miles per hour when ALL OF THE SUDDEN THERE WAS A STAMPEDE OF TURKEYS!!!!! I shit you not. The "lead" turkey just started running across the street and I had to slam on my breaks. Then, about 15 other turkeys followed behind him. They were running from one side of the golf course to the other. The most hilarious thing? They were using the cross walk...

Prissy and I were trying to decide if:
a) they were exercising so they'd be too lean to eat.
b) they were running from Da Man who was gonna eat them for dinner.
c) or they were preparing for the Turkey Trot - which is just down the way a bit. Seems like their training is paying off - they were FAST!

I wish I could have gotten some pictures, but they were just too fast for me to get my cell phone out.

Anyway, I wish them all the best in their race.

Can't Tell Yet

So, last night Prissy had her first sleepover and I missed her very much. Tonight, we let Bubba have a friend over to spend the night. I'm not sure if that was a good idea or a bad idea yet. At this point (7:30pm-ish) it seems like it is going well. The boys are playing upstairs and keeping each other entertained. So far so good. I'm not sure how the rest of the night will go.

Prissy is currently watching Never Ending Story - a favorite of mine when I was a kid.

The boys are quiet upstairs. OH SHIT!!! THEY ARE QUIET!!! WHAT ARE THEY DOING??!!!!

Growing Up

Tonight, my daughter is gone. She is at her very first sleep-over. It feels really weird. The house seems empty without her. Even though she would be sleeping upstairs, I can feel her absence.

I didn't think that her going up the street to a friends house over night would hit me quite so hard.

So Young

I found this picture when I was moving my office. It's from 1994 and shows a very young and happy couple (just a side note - I FINALLY got my new printer today and it scans awesomely.)

Here is the old fart couple in 2008:

misc 024

We've been together a really long time. I can without hesitation say that I still love him as much as ever. And no, it's not our anniversary or anything special today - I'm just feeling very stress-free. I really do have the greatest husband ever.

Kitty Hood

I'm really having trouble publishing this silly post tonight. I keep writing it up and then losing it. Hopefully it will take this time.

This is a picture of Jasmine with her hood on. She has since been allowed to take it off, but I love this picture. As I've posted on this blog before, she really enjoys playing in the sink with the water on. But, add a kitty-collar to the mix and it because hysterical. The collar becomes a funnel to her body for any sort of water. So, she always ended up completely wet, but didn't mind so much. Anyway, this picture was taken shortly after one of her adventures in the sink with her collar on.

Heard at the dinner table (I'm not sure how well this is going to translate to the written word - but it was hella funny):

Bubba: Tyler wasn't there.
Hubby: How about Tippecanoe? (You just can be social studies humor at the dinner table.. Ugh..)
Bubba: Yeah, he was there...
Hubby: Tippecanoe was at your play?
Bubba: Of course.
Me: Which one was he?
Bubba: The Principal!!!!!

The Principal's name is Mr. Thibideau (pronounced Tib-a-doo - rhymes with Tippecanoe).

So, from here on out - we will be calling the Princpal Mr. Tippecanoe.

Totally Looks Like

One of my favorite websites is Totally Looks Like - some of them are really funny. I've been meaning to do this for awhile, but my husband totally looks like David Boreanaz. We had our pictures taken this weekend and the lady taking the pictures pulled me aside AFTER we had paid and said, "You're Husband totally looks like the guy on Bones." Now, I've heard this before. And so has Hubby, but I decided to do a "Totally Looks Like" poll and leave it up to you internets.

What do you think?

(even if you don't think Hubby looks like Boreanaz - it doesn't matter because I still think he's totally hot (both of them actually.))

Kitties in love

I took this picture this afternoon. Since Jasmine got her collar off,
Oreo has been constantly by her side. I think she believed Jasmine
turned into a gross alien for awhile.

Soccer Season is Over

Today was the last day of the regular season of soccer games. Bubba's team had an undefeated season - and they were in the top bracket so they ended up winning their entire U8 divison. Bubba didn't score today - today's game was the hardest one yet, the score was 2-1.

Prissy's team won today - which was good. Prissy didn't score, but she has progressively gotten worse over the season - which is just weird.

Prissy had her end of the year soccer party at a local pizza place. She got a trophy. I'm SO glad her season was over. I had enough of her coach - but, the party was fun - only because Hubby and I snickered and made fun of the coach. Yes, pettiness does make me feel better sometimes.

Bubba's end of the year party is tomorrow at a local bowling alley - I enjoyed his soccer games completely and I'm sad his season is over. Some of the boys on his team are moving to a more competitive league - so after 3 years - his team is breaking up. It's really quite sad, I don't think I'm ready for it to end. I adore Bubba's coach - he is really awesome.

So - that's all. Tomorrow we are getting our annual family portrait taken. I'm not so excited about that - I'm not feeling really photogenic right now.

Random Crap

  • I didn't go to Taekwondo sparring class tonight - because I don't like to spar and because I had a rather large rum and coke and I would certainly have my ass handed to me if I tried to spar anyone right now.
  • My afternoon meeting was cancelled so I decided to come home early and went to Prissy's literary luncheon. She won an award. It was a potluck. It was nice.
  • I took an online advanced excel class for work - I can totally do database calculations now.
  • Hubby and I are having Chinese delivery tonight for dinner. The kids are eating hot dogs.
  • I'm having Twilight Saga withdraw - I'm sort of jonesing for the movie. This morning, as I was driving to work, the radio station I was listening to was giving away free tickets. I started calling because I SO WANTED TO WIN THOSE TICKETS and actually got through very quickly. Unfortunately, I had called the wrong radio station - how embarrassing.
  • Prissy cut 4" off of her hair and it's so damn cute.
  • Jasmine got her collar off today, as soon as it came off, she started biting her incision - all the scabs came off. I had to take her back to the vet. But, it was all healed. So, she should be okay. She and Oreo started playing again today - so I think that she is doing much better.

Man - two random bullet crap in one week - that is so sad...

My Little Winners

OMG! So, awhile back, my kids had a fundraiser that sold various wrapping papers and other crappola. My parents and inlaws bought stuff and we bought a LOT of stuff so the kids could reach their 10 item goal and be put in the school drawings.

Well, a mom from the PTA called me this evening and it turns out that BOTH kids won something. They both REALLY wanted the Limo ride and lunch with the Principal. Well - Bubba won that. I told him and he was SO EXCITED!!!!! Until I told Prissy that she won an iPod nano. Then, he threw a major fit. A.MAJOR.FIT.

He's totally bummed that he didn't win the Nano (which is a pretty awesome prize actually.) The only bummer is that we were planning on getting her a Nano for Christmas. Oh well - I guess we'll do something different for her now.

I am also excited that Bubba got a Limo ride, I think that will be really cool (I've never ridden in a Limo before.) I'm also glad that both kids won something. It would have been such a pain if Prissy won the iPod and Bubba didn't win anything. After talking with Bubba - we realized he didn't even know what an iPod nano was - but he DOES know what a Limo ride is. Ungrateful little stinker.

So, my kids are winners today. Yay!

It's Not Even 8am Yet!

Shit! It's not even 8am yet and I'm ready for a Xanax.

Bubba has a class singing-performance-thing coming up for a school assembly. He "volunteered" to be a football player - on Monday. We, of course, do not have any sort of football gear. No pants, no shirts, no helmets. But, I figured I'd look at Walmart this weekend to see if they had any halloween leftovers - and if not, I'd go to the party store. Worst came to worst, we could borrow something from our neighbor that plays football.

HOWEVER, Bubba was getting dressed this morning and he started yelling - "Today is my performance - what did you get me to wear?" What? It's today? TODAY!??!!! "Are you sure Bubba?" "YES! It's today!!! DID YOU FORGET??!!!!" Panic is creaping into his voice.

Shit, shit, shit, shit.... The teacher gives us one day - ONE WORK DAY to prepare for this? WHAT??!!! So, soccer shirt and baseball pants it is - I tell him that he'll look great. Then, I went upstairs and looked in our old costume relics and Bubba wore a Power Ranger costume last year I think. It had muscles. It was quite small, so I cut the top half off of it:

muscle man

And then put his shirt on over it:

football star?

Not too bad right? Especially in just a few minutes? I put new batteries in the camera - took a few pictures and we're off. On time even. I ask Bubba if he wants to take any other clothes and he says no, that he'll just take the "pads" off after the singing. Ok - we're off.

We're walking to school and Bubba says, "I hope it's today... Maybe it's next week sometime..." Oh, he didn't just say that...

The kids play outside before school starts, but I went and talked to his teacher. And no, there is no performance today. It's not until next Tuesday. I think I must have blacked out about then.

Upon coming to, I tell the teacher that I'll go home and get him some other clothes. *sigh*

When I get home - I see the kitten peeing on Prissy's baton bag. WTF?!!! "What are you doing?!!!" I couldn't deal with that at the moment - I pack Bubba's clothes up and head back to school. I get there and the students are lining up to go to class and Bubba says, "Did you pack me my class T-shirt? We have a fieldtrip today and we have to wear our class t-shirts." Of course, I did not. I told him to suck it - 'cause I'm a good mom like that.

The End.

Stupid Bulleted List

Tonight I have so many things buzzing around in my head. I figured I'd do the bullet list update.

  • Prissy went to the allergist yesterday and he gave us some hope on the peanut allergy front. He was at a food allergy conference this past weekend - and the immunotherapy research is really going well. Patients are given controlled amounts of peanut flour to put under their tongue and the dosage is increased bit by bit and it has been showing to make peanut allergic people less sensitive. He said there should probably be something mainstream in the next 5-10 years. This is just awesome news. The not awesome news is that Prissy's peanut allergy is still as present as ever - and still crazy bad. I thought it might be getting better - because she hasn't had a reaction for a long time - but, it's just that our carefulness is paying off.
  • Bubba and Prissy didn't have school today - and I got to work from home. Holy smokes, not so easy. I rented several movies, and got them a Wii game. They were actually really good, for the most part. I was still able to work, and still give them attention, and they didn't bicker too much today. I thank all that is good. I'm not sure if I could have handled it otherwise.
  • Work continues to be good - although, I have to take all the New-Employee classes, which is somewhat silly. I think I probably created some of those classes. *laugh* So, that is sort of boring, but it's short lived.
  • Jasmine still has to wear her collar to keep from biting her incision - she has to keep the collar on until Friday. Then she'll get to take it off (originally it was supposed to come off toady.) She is still running a bit of a fever - even after 8 days of antibiotics. That concerns me, but the vet just wants me to keep giving her the medicine. The good thing is that she is very easy to give medicine too - which I'm grateful for.
  • Hubby is traveling and comes home tomorrow. YAY!

My life in bullets. How is that for fun?

Monday, November 10, 2008

I think I'm just going to bed...

Hubby is traveling for work. The kids had a minimum day today. I had to take Prissy to the allergy doctor (shots are really helping her, but her peanut allergy is not improving in the slightest.) He also found out that the peanut allergy "vaccine" is a bust. Apparently it works about 80% of the time. That is not such great odds when you still have a 20% chance of anaphylaxis and potential death. But, apparently there are some great advancements with placing the minutest amount of peanut protein under the tongue and slowly increasing it. He said it was still about 10 years away - which is great.

Anyway, went to the allergist. Then, had to take Prissy to baton team and individual baton practice - and had to get Bubba to do his homework, listen to Prissy at her baton lesson, act as vice president for the board, and work simultaneously. It was a joy. I beat.

We stopped at KFC on the way home - it was delicious but it gave me a stomachache.

However, I went to get something from under the kitchen sink - and there is a friggin leak. And it looks like it's been there awhile. Holy shit people. I don't know what to do yet. It's not a major leak - a minor leak (it's NASTY under there.)

I decided to leave it for tomorrow. I think I'm just going to read my blogs and then go to bed. Tomorrow the kids have off of school and I still have to work - it will not be so fun if they are fighting. For the love of all that is good, please don't let them fight all day. I also have to take Jasmine back to the vet to check her stitches. UGH! And I guess I need to figure out what the hell is happening in my kitchen and call a plumber or something.

Good and Bad Choices - Day 2

Today here were Bubba's choices (his spelling gets bad when he's in a hurry)

Good: helping prissy put away her close. I didn't do it a week ago. I was riding my bike. I like riding my bike. It is fun.

Hmmm.... He helped Prissy put her clothes away today - but I have no idea what that has to do with his bike. Must be lacking a little focus.

Bad: hitting prissy because she made my elbow worse. Now it stings like crazey. I got it from riding my bike. I was going to fast. And I feel on concreat.

Blaming the sister - that is a bad choice. Prissy and Bubba were playing catch and she threw it a little to hard and he dove to catch it and hit his scraped elbow that he got while riding his bike. So, he hit her. Not a good choice. But, the bigger issue is his reasoning that it was ok to hit her. Hmmm... interesting.

Bad: fiting withe prissy all day. She ceped on hurting me. I wanded to watch a show and she wanded to watch anoter show. I wanted to play a game she wanded to play another game.

This is really interesting. He really didn't fight with prissy all day. They actually played very well together for most of the day. I think he was actually making this one up. And it's funny that he says she kept on hurting him. She didn't. He fell down once and bumped his sore elbow. It just happened to be right before he had to write his 3 items.

This is sort of interesting to see little bits into his mind.

Hubby is traveling and will be gone most of the week. I finished the Twilight saga and now I almsot don't know what to do with myself.

All 3 kitties

Last night I was up late reading and all 3 of the kitties came down
and were sitting on the couch together. This is totally weird, so I
grabbed by phone and took a picture of it. The top right kitty is my
ancient cat Pookie. The top left is Oreo. The one lying on the seat
with the sad sad collar us Jasmine.

Anyway, it made me really happy. Usually Pookie lives under the bed
or under the desk. It is nice to see her out and about, socializing even!!

Saturday, November 8, 2008

The Consequence

So, yesterday I posted about not knowing what to do about Bubba. But, we made a decision on what to do. Clearly taking things away, and normal punishment has not worked completely.

So, we decided to do a combination of things. First, Bubba cannot have any candy for 30 days (days = number of candies he snuck upstairs.) Second, he cannot play computer games unless they have educational value for 30 days. So, that is his punishment, but in addition to that, every day he has to write about three choices he made - what they were are if they were good choices or bad choices. I want him to know the difference between right and wrong. I want him to realize that HE makes these choices. No one else makes these decisions. I want him to review what some of his choices are on a daily basis.

Here were today's (in his words):

  • good: leving Prissy alone when she told me to. they were going to do girl stuf. I didn't burp in her face. (Prissy had a friend over today - and I guess he left her alone when she asked and resisted to burp in her face - this definately is a good choice.)
  • Bad: I didn't give Prissy toilet paper. She had no toilet paper when she was going to the bathroom. (definately a bad choice - or at least not a very nice choice.)
  • Good: I didn't sneak any candy. I don't like penut butter. It tast bad. It makes my dangely thing in the back of my mouth feel all funny. (Ok, Prissy is horribly allergic to peanuts. We don't keep it around the house, but occasionally he gets a butterfinger or something at school. This concerns me a little bit and means a trip back to the doctor.)

So, we'll see how this new discipline method goes.

On a different note - soccer games today. Bubba scored two goals and had a great assist on another. His team is still undefeated (they won today 8 to 0). They are so good. Prissy played goalie for the second half of her game and had several amazing stops. No one scored on her. They ended up tied 1 to 1.

Candy sneaking

At my wits end

Dear Bubba,

You are my sweet, beautiful, very manipulative and sneaky 7 year old son.

The principal called this week to tell your Dad and I that you and your friend went into the girls bathroom. You had recess taken away and had to have a little chat with him about how going into the girls bathroom was inappropriate.

A parent pulled me aside and told me that something you said made her daughter cry all night long.

You stole a HUGE amount of Halloween candy, and snuck it up to your room. You then ate it in the middle of the night.

You have gotten into such deep trouble for this behavior before. But yet you continue.

Ugh... You snuck up over 30 pieces of candy! (Picture to come in the next post.)

What am I going to do with you when you become a teenager and it's drugs instead of candy? Do you know how much this scares me?

How do I stop this now?!!?? This is just not okay behavior, and I'm totally stumped.

I love you with all of my being - but these bad choices have to stop.

Almost There....

I haven't talked much about Taekwondo recently. This past testing completely stressed me out. There was minimal time between testings, and we traveled to Italy during that time, and my work life was pretty much in chaos. To make matters a little more hectic, testing was last Saturday, which was supposed to entail going to two soccer games, a friends open house, Taekwondo testing and a Halloween party. We lucked out because it rained like crazy and the soccer games were cancelled. So, it all worked out okay.

Anyway, both Hubby and I passed. We are now red-belt decideds. Which is very exciting.

My belt looks orange in the picture, but it's red, trust me. :)
testing 002

Testing went well. Our next testing we will be black belt recommended. Our belt will be half red and half black. Then our next belt is black. So, only two more belts and we will be black belts. Damn, this has been one long journey.

Anyway, I actually plan to go after my 2nd degree. We'll see. :)

Almost there....

New Job

Well, I'll post a little work related stuff. I don't do that very often. But, I started my new job on Monday. I finally got my computer yesterday, and I finally got my email working today. Then the onslaught came. Holy crap - I have so much work to do. And I love it.

My new boss (who is the same as my old old boss) is da bomb. I have missed him SO MUCH the last, almost, 2 years (he was my manager for almost 8 years and then when he left I took his position). He is really an amazing manager. I am being thrown in head first - but, for the first time in a long time I feel like I'm not swimming upstream. I feel like I'm not fighting for everything. I feel like I'm actually appreciated and I get help when I need it. *HUGE SIGH OF RELIEF* Plus, the work is all new and it's really pretty fun (ask me again in 6 months and we'll see what I have to say.)

So - take all of that, and while I was waiting for my account to be reset one last time, he came and got me and made me go play Wii Bowling. Totally weird.

On the down side - oh gawd to I totally miss my team. I so wanted to be with them this morning to talk over the election. We have all become so close that I miss my friends. However, NIB is in town, and I do NOT miss that one bit.

As always -

Since I'm doing the 365 one, I thought that I could just incorporate the standard November one that got me into blogging in the first place in 2006. :)

Things that make me sad

Poor Jazzy got a little infection from biting at her incision from her recent surgery removing her girl parts. So the vet gave her a special hat and antibiotics.  Poor baby. :(

Things that make me happy

My new pink converse tennies.

Box kitteh

Jasmine was enjoying her box this evening. Notice the nice kitteh
house behind her. Yet, notice she chooses the shoebox.

Sunday, November 2, 2008


Today, I went to Walmart for my standard weekly grocery shopping trip. I started going to Walmart within the last year to try to save money. And I really do save a LOT of money - easily $100 bucks a week. The place is always crowded, and it always sucks a bit of my soul away, but I needed to save some money so I could afford to pay my maid. *laugh* Duh!

Anyway, today, the place was absolutely PACKED. I walked in and there were Christmas trees and Christmas decorations EVERYWHERE! Holy crap. The shopping season has begun. I got all my stuff and all the checkout lanes had 5-10 people each. I picked a line and waited and waited and waited. I finally pulled out my iPhone and played Solitaire for awhile. Then, Hubby called and told me that he needed Cheer. Ummm. After waiting almost 20 minutes in line and only being 2 people away from getting to check out, I decided that I would just pick it up somewhere else. I wasn't getting out of that line for anything.

Dang, I'm thinking that maybe Walmart grocery shopping during the months of November and December is not such a good idea. I don't think I can tolerate standing in line for 30 minutes every week just for my groceries. (On a side note - Walmart stock is a good idea right now - when the economy sucks - Walmart stock goes up! So, as a Walmart shareholder - please keep going to your local Walmart - we really do appreciate it! The more you all shop there - the less I need to. 'k thx bye!)

Saturday, November 1, 2008


I just got home from a friend's open house. She just finished her remodel and OMG her house is amazingly gorgeous. It's like a magazine (well, it actually was featured in a magazine.) I am so jealous.

We have Taekwondo testing in just a few minutes. Hopefully, if I pass, I will become a red belt-decided. That would be cool. However, with the Italy trip, and multiple other things in the way, I don't have as many classes as I should. However, I feel really confident in the form.

After that, we will rush and get a bit of food and then go to a Halloween party. I'm just really glad that soccer games were cancelled due to the rainy weather today. It would have just been too much to fit into one day. However, I HATE THE RAIN! I HATE THE COLD GREY WEATHER! RAIN MAKES ME DEPRESSED! So, it's supposed to be sunny at the end of the week.
