Ok, so I did almost nothing!

So, today I was going to work in my garden, Brian was off from work and we had planned to get a bunch of stuff done.... but he woke up with some sort of back strain (yea right!) and didn't want to get out there after church. I went out there and messed around some but didn't get much done. I went back inside and proceeded to do nothing but watch HGTV or Food network. Well I did stay with Jana for the very last cookie booth. On Saturday Jana came home very upset, apparently the father of her friend tried to make her wear this cookie costume that their younger daughter has been wearing for the cookie booths. I personally think the costume is horrible looking and would not want either child wearing it. But to ask a 13 year old girl to put on that, is outside of enough. But he did not just ask her, he kept insisting, after she refused and when she wouldn't put it on he talked to her like she was 6. ( these are Jana's words, I was not there.) I told her I was proud of her for standing up for herself and not doing something that made her feel uncomfortable. I went to the cookie booth so there would not be a repeat performance and talked to the mother. She told me she had already gotten on to the father and I made it clear she was NOT to to be asked and said I wouldn't ask her daughter to do something she wasn't comfortable doing either and I trust that it wouldn't happen again. If it does I will have to keep Jana from going over to her friends house and only have the friend over here. I prefer that anyway.
