Oh look, now i can post a thread.  Sorry ladies, between home life and the boards not working, I'm thoroughly frustrated at this point, please forgive me for my negativeness right now. 

How is everyone doing today?  What are you plans for the day?

I have a pretty full day of things to do at work.  Hoping to run an errand at lunch, but we'll see how it goes.  I have a bunch of paperwork to do tonight and I need to start really planning for our trip to Michigan next week.  I have a lot of moving parts to try and get to work together. We are having beef stew for dinner, I put it in the crock pot before I left for work this morning.

Have a great day!

I totally agree Heather.  A heads up at the beginning of the year would have been nice.  Especially since we had to pay $30 foreach girl.

hi everyone, hope your week got off to a good start.

I went on a field trip with a group of my students today. We saw a college performance of Into The Woods. It was very good. I got to go home 15 minutes early because I didn't get to take all of my lunch break.

Ian had a regular school day and had a dental checkup after work. The dentist is getting so expensive.

Kayleigh had a regular school day.  She came home needing $$$ by next week for a field trip that is the end of May. Seriously?  She really needs to go out and get herself a job.

We are having breakfast for dinner and I'm hoping to have a quiet evening and turn in early.

I hope you find Sneaky.  It's a stressful situation.  I think you are completely right not to share the news until after finals.

That's ok Tracy.  We didn't have a wonderful weekend either. And I'm in a mood.

 I didn't sleep well- and I'm tired.  And I have to clean the whole darn house etc since we have people coming here on Sat.  And I kind of think it's a losing battle b/c nobody's going to put anything away and I'm going to spend half of Sat cleaning it up again. 

  I am NOT hosting the small group party next year.  And I don't care if dh complains or not. 

No we still can't find the cat.  Sigh.  I feel like a horrible pet parent right now.  I don't know what would have been worse- not knowing where she is- or finding her body in a litter box in the garage this morning.

And because of that- Becca was slower than a snail this morning.  Didn't want to get up.  I let her drive in this morning so I guess that helped.  She's got orchestra rehersal tonight that I'd really like to just blow off- but she should probably go.  It's only another week and then she's got 2 weeks off.

Dh did kind of offer to do the Lynchburg run on Thursday.  I wonder if he'd still be ok with it if I asked him tonight.

Morning.  Yes, we are having the worstluck with feet right now!  This really sucks.  I can barely walk and Tim keeps telling me to get up once in a while and walk on it.  I am just cause I need to pee, eat, grab the phone and put it nearby.  That sort of stuff.  I am sitting here looking at the messes or vacuuming that really needs to be done and wondering if I will manage to get anything done today.  My foot/ankle go between feeling tingly, cold or hot.  It's a wierd feeling.  I got up on time but fell back to sleep and woke up at 7:30 and had to get myself up the stairs quick on a bum foot and get the kids up.  Of course Natalie pushed the limits evern today.  I was so aggrivated with myself.  Poor kids.  They all got out the door on time.  I told Tim to take the car since I can't do much walking.  Heres to hoping I can finish Christmas shopping this week.  Kids will have homework tonight and not much else going on.  

Dinner will be spaghetti.
