Good morning ladies!  DH, Jordyn and I went to a late dinner last night, the first time the 3 of us have went out alone since Emma was born.  It was a nice time.  But, I am dragging today because of it.  Should be a pretty quiet day, I have a few small projects I am working on, and a telephone conference at 1:00.  I need to think about dinner, Jordyn is home tonight, so I need to make something Jordyn friendly, hmmm, maybe we'll just do hot dogs and hamburgers on the grill, I have everything for that except buns that I can stop and grab on the way home.  Nothing planned for tonight, I will probably start on laundry. 

I have Friday and Monday off of work to spend with my parents, so I may be a bit scarce after today.  I will try and get on to post the daily thread, but if you get on and there isn't one, feel free to start one in my absence.

Morning.  I forgot Natalie needed to be at school early to finish up something in Math.  She forgot too.  Hopefully her teacher will let her today at some point.  Got all the kids all off to school.  Went grocery shopping and got a new coffee pot too.  I need to hot Sams but don't want to.  Tim's glasses need fixing and he got them at Sams.  I plan to lay down for a bit.  I am feeling a cold trying to come on, some congestion in my chest.  Hopefully I can stop it before it gets too bad.  Tonight the girls are going to the MS football game.  Katie asked one of her volleyball team mates to come with her, so we are picking her up and I am taking them.  We will run grab a pizza at Little Ceasers for them to eat in the car before hand so they get something in thier bellies.  They will be eating junk at the game.  Friends mom will be picking them up when the game is over.  Matthew is not up to anything tonight.  I think he needs to do some studying in Matth.

I got some good news yesterday from the girls.  Katie has the 4th highest gpa in her class and Natalie has the 5th.  Hers would be higher but she is not getting good grades on her HW, which will be topic of discussion tonight and she is missing something she missed when she was out.

Busy morning.  I took Buffy to the vet for a shot and then for a short walk.  I did a massive Target shopping trip, ran to Old Navy to pick up Zeph a new Packers shirt, and then to Petsmart for some new doggy toys. 

DH is taking Zeph to classes today so I will have from 12-6 alone.   I hope to clean dust/vacumm the downstairs and main living spaces and clean/mop the kitchen and laundry room.  It's beautiful out so I am planning to sit on the deck and read too.  

No idea on dinner.  I should grocery shop, but I really don't want to.

Good luck to K and her team tonight. I am so sorry HS swimming wasn't a good experience for her. It has so much potential. Hope the girls can pull together and finish the season off well.

Hi all. Going to try to make the quick as I have so many things I want to get done my head is spinning. Time to make a list!

Morning went pretty well. Everyone got off with only minor drama. Evan dropped a grade related bomb on me on the way to school so now he has to figure out what to do about it and let us know how we can help. Work was easy and calm though my coworkers got a text from her boyfriend of 1o years that he was in a bike accident, needed stitches, and was headed to the hospital. Haven't heard anything from her yet. I hope he's okay. Apparently someone in a car cut him off. He refuses to wear a helmet so I hope he doesn't have a concussion.

Tonight is a mess. Dh is going to Aikido, I'm left trying to get dinner for two kids, get both to swim practice and back, attend a college financing talk at the library and make sure homework gets done. Not to mention the leftovers from my to do list this afternoon. Hmmmm guess I should get the computer...

Have a great evening everyone!

I'm exhausted. The day at work did not start out too badly but it went downhill. I feel like I spent most of my classroom time with the problem kid, his aide got on my nerves and it was a nightmare getting him to and on the bus.  

Ian had a regular day at school and then the orthodontist. Kayleigh had school, then GSA, then the class she teaches at the art center.

Tonight, we are having meatball/potato stew in the crockpot. I have to do some cleaning so that I leave the house in some semblance of tidiness when I leave for the weekend tomorrow.  I also have to pack, watch Greys and make lists of some things I need the rest of the fam to do while I am away.
