I hope everyone had a good week and the weekend is relaxing before the holiday next week.

Today is a little disjointed. Evan had early morning swim practice and then Megan had early orchestra rehearsal. After taking care of that, I went to work which was easy today. Now I'm home for the afternoon and hopefully I'll find the energy to get some things done so the house doesn't look like a war zone going in to the weekend. Tonight Megan and I leave for an overnight at my parents (oh, guess that means I should pack) so she can ride in one last horse show tomorrow. I've got some frozen stuff for the boys so they won't go hungry. She and I will eat on the way. Saturday is the horse show and the we'll drive home. Sunday Evan has confirmation class and dh is thinking about taking Megan out for some one-on-one time. She was telling me the other day that she feels like she only has one parent so I suggested to dh that the two of them do something of her choosing.

Megan needs to work on the place cards for Thanksgiving this weekend and I want to have the house cleaned up by Sunday morning. We're not hosting Thanksgiving but the house is nasty right now. I don't think it's ever been this bad before! Between the dog, the kids, and the junk from dh's last business trip and camping trip last weekend I can hardly walk from one room to another! Ackkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk!

Have a great weekend everyone!

Checking in to say hi! It's the usual around here. Hockey has started up and just in time since Kenzie's high school swim season just ended! It's not going to be the greatest season for various reasons, but we shall grin and bear it! Kenzie swam really well and even achieved a Speedo cut...more out of town meets, yay! She went back to club (no break) this week and the drama with E has begun! My anxiety level is through the roof already! Did not miss this at all! How am I going to keep her from these kids that just won't accept her. She's a good kid; made the A honor roll, made a soloist group in Choir and does well in her sport...but noooo she can't relish in that, everyone has to call her ugly, stupid, trashy, not good at singing...you name it, they try to bring her down. I just don't understand!

Anyways, DH has decided to go to nights and then pick up extra shifts. That leaves me on the lurch on what to do with my hours. Everyone is fighting over hours at work (they only should have hired 3 and hired 8) and so I'm guessing someone will take my hours. We just don't want to put Jax in daycare anytime soon. I'm so excited DH will be home in the evenings to help...ahhh!

Thanksgiving; I work (tried to split it with someone) and DH will be going over to his aunt's with the kids! The kids are off next week; so that will be nice!

Today Zeph and I are spending the day in the city with my grandma-the one we seldom see.

We have a relatively quiet weekend I think, especially after the last two.
