How is everyone's weekend going?
Are you working mama's back at work? Are your kids back in school?
My kids start school again tomorrow - SO happy. It is weird since until this last fall, they weren't in school at all and I was so used to having them home with me. Then DD started kindergarten (just afternoons) and DS1 started preschool 4 days a week. Now I am going STIR CRAZY with them at home all day! They are so bored and I have no energy to do anything fun! I am glad to send them back to school tomorrow. Phew.
This week I have the dentist again to finish up my root-canal-from-hell. So.....not looking forward to that. But I AM looking forward to: choir starting up again on Thursday! And....U/S on Friday!!!! Yippee!!!!!
We homeschool, and we started back to school last Wednesday, I am trying I get as many days in to be sure we get done with school before his baby comes! I have two ultrasounds this week, so I have that to look forward to! We are taking our son to his first NBA game this week, he is so excited! Otherwise this week will be normal. I do need to be getting DD some birthday presents, it so hard right after Christmas coming up with ideas!
This weekend we have had company for dinner Friday and Saturday night, so that was fun. Our weekends are normally pretty boring!
We also homeschool, and just break whenever. My family is visiting for a few days this weekend, so we will take a break then for a few days. We really only took Christmas eve and Christmas day off. My poor DH even got called to work on CHristmas day, but he is also taking a day off when my family comes this weekend, so that will be nice. It's actually easier for us to do school then not. The kids are still really young, so we don't do "much," but it adds a nice routine and flow to our day. I'm sure that's what you are missing right now Sandra - the routine and flow of your day. With your kids in school you got use to a new routine, and that's been all changed up the past couple weeks.
DD went back to daycare last Wednesday and we went back to work that day too. DSD was here because her school doesn't go back until tomorrow. DH has taken her to her mom's house so it'll be just us 3 this week.
Not much planned for the week. I'm cooking a turkey right now, so that'll keep us fed for a few days. Ummm...what else? Not sure. :P
I just realized DS1 has an appt with a geneticist this week too, so add ANOTHER appt I have to find a babysitter for. DH has quarter end at work this week so he is way too busy to help out. I think I found a sitter for during the ultrasound and also for during my root canal. Now just to find one for DS1's 9 am appointment at the hospital.....SO early. That means I need a sitter by 8:15 in the morning on Thursday. I can't ask someone with school age kids because they will be so busy at that time.
Sounds like a fun week for you guys Leah! DS1's birthday is in a month, and it is always hard to buy presents right after Christmas. I think we are getting him a Leap Pad or something. Plus his party is at a Monster Truck show, so that is enough money right there.
I definitely miss the routine! I am ready to get back to the grind. Sucks that this week is so busy though.
Gabby went back to pre k last week and Dom doesn't go to school yet. We, however, have had a rather stressful couple of weeks. Gabs started out with croup and a fever. Then I got a sinus infection and had to go on antibiotics. Which totally stressed me out cause I almost never get sick and this is the first time I have had to take any medicine/antibiotics while pregnant!! Then On Thursday Dom got croup but he got it really bad and quickly. It happened in a matter of just a few hours!! I rushed him to the ped and had to get him steroids cause he was having trouble breathing. I thought we were going to have to make a trip to the hospital but I caught it just in time! Thank God! If I had even waited just a couple more hours it would have been bad.
So it has been rather eventful here and I'm looking forward to a better week ahead!!
