The dreaded Spring Break has arrived. An entire week or kids at home and it is forecasted to rain every day but today . It's gonna be a long one!

Back in the saddle again....

So far, so good this week (although it is only Monday). The weekend was insane - we had something from Friday night until Sunday afternoon! I am looking forward to a calm week --> although I just lost one of my new crowns!! I have to go in tomorrow and get a new one.

All better

At least for now....Hannah woke up yesterday and her temp was 98.2. Phew! I was able to go to work (hooray!) and hopefully will be able to finish out the week. I really needed to be away from sick kids -- 24/7 for 2 days was getting on my nerves (but my kitchen is pretty clean!).

Aaacckk! Sick kid!

Hannah has been running a fever since Sunday night. Took her to the doctor yesterday, her strep test was negative so the verdict was a virus that has to run it's course. She had to miss school Monday and I kept her home again today because her temp was 100.5 this morning. Hopefully she will be better tomorrow - she is star of the week and is heartbroken that she hasn't gotten to share her poster that she worked so hard on!

Winter Carnival

Today is the school's winter carnival. The theme for our booth is mousetrap. We are having the kids throw tiny catnip mice into a piece of cheese (a bean bag target covered to look like cheese). Because I am certifiably insane, I bought myself mouse ears and a gray shirt to wear. The girls said I should give myself whiskers and a black nose, so I am going to. I also got one of the pet carriers that they send your pets home in when you buy them at the store to put the catnip mice in. In 50 years when it is time to put me in the home, I hope they remember I did this for them and put me in a nice one!

Got up late.... trying to play catch up. We have family fundraiser night tonight as well as choir for the girls. Then either I or Stan will go to the adult choir tonight. Oh well, I guess there's always tomorrow morning for catch up!

Day off??

Well, I guess technically since I'm not working today I have a day off. I have so many errands to run! Grocery, pharmacy, dentist and dropping off items at the girls school for starters. I wonder if I'll ever get caught up on everything I need to do.

As the Boomtown Rats said...

"I don't like Mondays". It's 5:35 am and so far I have:
  1. Comforted a child who came into my room crying
  2. Started a load of laundry
  3. Mentally calculated that my children use at least 42 socks and 21 pairs of underwear every week
  4. Started the dishes that were taking over the sink
  5. washed my hair and put it in rollers; sat under the dryer while I...
  6. checked my e-mail
I'm tired and my day hasn't even started yet!

It's now 7:30 am and I have done another load of laundry, made 4 lunches, packed three snacks, got three folders ready, got three girls dressed, got myself dressed, made myself a giant iced latte, helped a friend with some website text, sent invitation drafts to my sister. Now all that's left to do is 3 girls hair, toothbrushing, facewashing, backpack getting, coat putting on, getting in the car and going to school. Must be in the car by 8:30 am - I have a few seconds to breathe!

First Post

I am going to try to get into blogging again! I let my other one lapse, so now I am trying to get back into the swing of it. Things have been busy - the girls are in first grade and loving it! I went 'back to work' as a mother's helper - I started when the babies were about 6 weeks old; now they're 6 almost 6 months old. It's a great job and lots of fun!
Life is crazy most of the time, but I'm going to try to stay on top of the blog!
