Today is housework and school.  I;m waiting for online registration to open for co-op for fall.   Someone needs to go to the post office and the grocery store.  Tongiht we are celebrating DH's birthday.  I'm making cheese and meat fondues.  DH loves fondue and we harldy ever have it.  I ordered his presents too late, so none of them arrived on time, but he does have a couple of gifts to open from my mom and grandma.  Tonight he and I are going to watch Argo. 

Saturday and Sunday are unscheduled.  Zeph has to work on his Lit Group assignments.  I'd like to spend some time outside.

Weekend, let's see.  Tonight, sleep and clean!  Tomorrow, I have a hair appointment at noon to get a hair cut.  Jordyn is going to a reception at the Austin Modern Art Institute, or something like that.  She has a piece that was selected to be in the exhibit.  Then her a her boyfriend and BFF are heading up to Waco to watch the Oregon Acro and Tumbling team she'll be on next year compete against Baylor.  I have a sitter set up for the little girls, and DH and I are supposed to go to a wedding of a lady who is the accountant/contact for one of his largest customer accounts.  I am not sure why we were invited, but we were and I know its a good business/networking thing for his business.  I texted him yesterday to tell him I finally had a sitter and asked if we were still going or if we were going on a date night and he never answered me, so, we're either going to a wedding or going on a date night.  I actually have a sitter lined up, we are going somewhere!
 
Sunday, morning cleaning and decluttering, and laundry.  I sent out Emma's birthday party invites, so the party is two weeks from tomorrow and the house is not anywhere near ready, plus we have a cheer banquet next weekend to attend.  I hope I can get everything ready for this party in time!!   Its supposed to be in the 80's all weekend, so I am hoping I can keep the kids outdoors as much as possible to get cleaning done, and open up the windows and get a bit of fresh air in the house!
Have a great weekend!

Morning.  First thing, I am tired.  So tired.  I slept fitfully last night and ended up getting up early.  I am ready for a midmorning nap and can't.  Strange morning.  Tim and I had a breakfast date and so he left to take Katie to school early for some help from her math teacher and went on to our meeting location while I made sure the other two got off alright.  Well, Natalie ran upstairs to bruch her teeth and I was watching the house behind us cause the bus stops there before cominf around to our house.  Somehow I never saw him at the neighbors house and Nat ended up missing the bus.  I was going to drop her at the stop on the street after our stop but she insisted I not and to please take her on to school.  I did but I have to go through three school zones before I can even turn into the car line for her drop off.  So I ended up running behind for our breakfast date.  But it all worked out.  I had 10 minutes to spare after we ate so we got to chat a bit which I enjoy doing alone with him.  I am in the office alone today.  A bit uneasy since I have no keys to unlock any conference rooms and hoping no one else needs any open.  They are locked up in my co-workers desk.  Someone already came looking for keys for the one across the hall and we don't have that key anyway.  I just remembered all the file cabinets and supply cabinets are all locked up too.  Not sure about dinner but I get off at 2:30 and will worry about it then.  

Tomorrow Natalie are spending a litle time alone together.  Her and I have had very little of that lately.  We are going shopping for girls stuff.  ;-)  Tomorrow night Tim and I might go to the coffee house to watch his friend sing.  If he is singing we aren't sure.  I will be cooking the pork roast all day for dinner that night.

Sunday, I am guessing will be our first mow day of the season.  The lawn is looking scraggly and ready for a good mowing.

This has been our Spring Break week and the weather has not cooperated at all. Gray and rainy all week. We did some shopping, college visits and just hung out.  I got much of the garage cleaning done, still quite a bit to go. DS got his SAT scores back and we were pleasantly surprised. Standardized testing is really hard for him. The scores and his grades are more than enough to get him into the schools he is interested in. He still has to take 3 subject tests in June, and the ACT in June also. We will probably do a bit of prep this summer and take it one more time in September. This weekend the kids have a meet on Saturday, DS has a presentaiton to do at church for his Eagle project. DH has to work on Saturday, Sunday DS has a Boy Scout leader meeting, and probably some homework to catch up on. DD has a project to wrap up for school and some baking to do for a friends birthday. I will just be catching up on chores around the house and going to the meet with the kids, we have to take a friend of DD, so I have to drive.
