Happy Saturday!!!

Hey everyone!! I hope you are all having a great weekend. My weekend has consisted of pretty much nothing. Today was a pretty lazy day. I did get a tiny bit of house work done but in my opinion, housework is for the birds on the weekends. Here is a sign that I once saw which pretty much sums it up.
My husband and I have a son that has some behaviour issues ( I think I have mentioned this a little bit before, but for his privacy I wont get to deep into talking about it). In order to fix that we have had to place him on some medication. He was out on some new medicaton that we started today. If any of you have seen the episode of The Simpsons when Lisa takes "happy pills" and everything she looks at his smiley faces....thats how he was today. It was great, he loved everything and everyone. Which is a big change from the way he used to be.
I made a lasagna for dinner tonight. Instead of using ricotta cheese I just used an italian blend cheese. I think I like it that way better. No one said that it didnt taste good so I guess it tasted okay. That or they were trying to be nice but I have always told my family that if they dont like something that I make, they have to tell me so that I dont make it again. Guess its fine with everyone if I make it this way from now on.

It’s National Anthem Day! In 1814, a young lawyer named Francis Scott Key wrote a poem called “Defence of Fort McHenry.” Key penned the verses after witnessing the British attack on Baltimore Harbor during the War of 1812. The sight of the American flag flying triumphantly over Fort McHenry in the morning inspired his legendary words.
Key decided to set his piece to music, and borrowed the tune from a popular song called “To Anacreon in Heaven.” Not long after it was first published, people began referring to the piece as “The Star-Spangled Banner.” The song became an overnight success, and bands began playing it during public events and military occasions. In March of 1931, over a hundred years after Key wrote it, “The Star-Spangled Banner” became the official national anthem of the United States.
Do you know all of the words to the national anthem (including verses two, three, and four)? Today's a great day to refresh your memory. Happy National Anthem Day!
Dont forget to watch my video from last week. I will have a new one coming this week for your viewing pleasure so make sure you keep an eye out for that one. Have a great night everyone!!
