daily thread jan 17th
I worked yesterday but only had one baby and he took 5 hours worth of naps. Last night mom and I went to get some Bat Mitzvah supplies like candy dishes and baskets ect. I am feeling on top of things now I think. I will feel great when we have all our outfits bought. That is weighing on me.
Today I am working but I only have the big kids so we will bake cookies. Sophia has her Bat Mitzvah lesson tonight too. Never boring over here.
ML hope Ava is better. I am right there with you Brandi and Sam on the diet/workout train. Save me a seat next you. Maybe we could have dinner, desserts and drinks in the dining car. Wait. What were we supposed to be doing? Melissa have a great day! DId I miss anyone?
Lol Sam. Climb aboard! 5 hours worth of naps? That's awesome! You must have loved that day! Good luck with all the outfit picking.
Snow day today! It would be really fun with just my kids...but I have 5 kids + my kids. It's going to be a very. busy. day. Dylan likes to get all the other kids wired and hyper. I think we'll do 'quiet time' this morning and put on a movie and then this afternoon during our usual quiet time, we'll go out and play while the two little ones are napping.
I'm taking the girls to the dentist tomorrow. Not so much fun for them but I get the whole day off. Yay!
Samantha, hope your snow day/busy day goes well!
Sam, have fun baking cookies. :)
Ava's fever is down. Knock wood it will stay down today. Sent Nicky off to school dressed like Bill Gates (navy v-neck sweater over blue button down, navy cords, wire rim owl glasses w/o lenses, copy of The Road Ahead) to give his famous American report on him. He looks great, has a great speech, but hates to wear the glasses. Fingers crossed that he will put them on to do it. Just trying to prep for tomorrow's class and keep Ava occupied today.
Sam, I'm glad you are getting some of the Bat Mitzvah stuff planned. I hope you will share pictures after Sophia's big day! :)
Enjoy the play time in the snow Samantha. We got some too overnight. Not a fan!
Nicky sounds very prepared ML. I hope it goes super for him!
Good morning everyone! It is cold here in MN. Brrr! Marshall bought me remote start for my van for Christmas and I had it installed last Friday. This morning was the perfect day to use it. Perfect gift! :) Other that that, nothing much exciting. I took all four kiddos to the dentist yesterday and we left with four cavities. I guess that's not so terrible with four sets of teeth but still. Combine those bills with the orthodontist bills for two girlies, they all will have million dollar smiles soon. Ha! Seriously, I could buy something large and fancy for what we have spent on their mouths. lol!! Have a good day everyone!
Cookies Sam? Why didn't you say so..I would have come up to be the taste tester! ;)
Samantha, I hope you don't go insane with all of those kids!!! I know I would!
ML, I hope Ava continues to get better! Nothing worse than a sick kid.
Kelli, are you feeling better?
Got my running around done today and got some good deals with coupons! I wanted to stock up on easy stuff I could make for myself so I wouldn't wander off of the diet anymore. I get bad with that when we are busy! Having a bad allergy day too. Bleh. It's been raining SO much down here that the mold count is high. I'm MISERABLE! It rained this morning, and we're supposed to have thunderstorms tonight...then more rain by this weekend. Ugh. It isn't sunny enough to dry anything out! I'm waiting for some of the tall pines we have in the backyard to start falling over!
Glad Ava's fever is down ML. Hope Nicky does well on his speech! Sounds like it will be great!
Kelli - how are you feeling? I sure hope you're not in too much pain anymore. I hate shelling out money for the dentist. It's so expensive!
Brandi - hope the sun comes out soon for you!
Thanks for asking Brandi and Samantha! Each day is a little better. I'm still a little sore and sleeping still hurts but I am on the mend. Thankfully! :)
