I don't have any one coherent idea to write about tonight, so I'll just jot down some of the stuff rattling around in my head.
My mom said something to Tim today about not being here this summer? Where will she be, exactly? Is she moving out? Going on the grand tour of Europe? It would be nice if she would tell me if she's moving. Maybe she's trying to surprise me, but that's not a very nice surprise. I know that she's not happy living here at the Casa and if she's unhappy then of course I don't want her to stay. But if she's planning on moving, that would be a nice little piece of information to share with me, don't you think?
We've recently been talking about sending Kai to Holy Cross school next year. We're not parishioners, so the sight of the tuition made me say 'Holy CRAP!' I'm not sure how I feel about things spiritually. I believe in God, or the concept of a higher power at least, but I'm not sure if I want Kai's education to be centered around organized religion, when right now, it's just not a big part of our lives. We were looking at private school mainly to get Kai into a smaller class, and away from some of the constant irritations that he keeps having to deal with at his current school. We've been wanting Kai to experience a variety of religious and spiritual practices (Catholicism, Buddhism (not really a religion, per se, more of life philosphy), Judaism, Hindu, Greek Orthodox, etc) and then decide for himself what his beliefs are when he gets older. I don't want to force one set of beliefs on him and say 'this is what we believe, don't question it, just do it'. More thoughts for another day, I suppose.
This past weekend at the store, I picked up a package of panko breadcrumbs. Wow, they are great! I made some sauteed chicken breasts last night, and I dredged them in the breadcrumbs before throwing them in the pan. The panko crumbs are very crunchy and light. Deeelishh!!
Tomorrow, I'm going to share lasagna at lunch with Rhonda, and discuss momma drama type events. And, it's Hump Day, which means I may have to make a coffee run!
