grammys and update

I usually don't watch the Grammys. If I do, I end up disappointed. Wow, it's been good so far this year, though. I saw Madonna and Gorillaz, Coldplay, *U2* and now Paul McCartney! Singing "Helter Skelter", no less! I am pleasantly surprised. Oh, and since I'm a huge crybaby, I already cried. At Kelly Clarkson's acceptance speech, can you imagine? I'm not even a big fan but she was crying and, well, you know the rest. . . .

Now for an update on Brianna's science fair that was causing so much drama. She won the sweepstakes award! Yes, my baby won! I was soooooo proud. I'd picked her up and they didn't know the results yet. The whole classroom walked into the place where all the projects were all displayed. The winners already had the ribbons posted on the project. I heard some kid saying "I got first place", and I thought "Aww, poor Brianna". When we got to her project it had a green ribbon on it and I was wondering what place that was. Then I saw Brianna jumping up and down saying "I got sweepstakes! I got sweepstakes!" Oh, I was sooooo proud! Her teacher came over and hugged us and I had to try really hard not to cry because I didn't want to embarrass Brianna in front her little friends. So now she has to go to the district competition. Wish her luck with that.

Ok, and finally for tonight, I was tagged by Margie. Here are my answers. . . .
