Good morning ladies!  I hope everyone had good weekend!  How is everyone this morning?  Are the kids that are still in school in countdown mode?  Any mid-terms going on this week?

Awesome Mindy!  Congrats to her!

Evening, I have an update to my daily post.  While staying home today she started running a fever again.  She ate a small lunch and went to back to bed.  So she is home again tomorrow.  This is finals week so she needs to get back by Thursday so she doesn't miss any of them.  She has been sleeping since lunch time.  Matthew stayed home all day cause of his head but he will be fine and go back tomorrow.  I think he had the massive headache because of his xbox video games he plays all day yesterday.  So he and I came up with a plan to limit his time on there.  I found info on symptons to playing those things too long and he has a lot of the problems listed.  I read them to him and so he agreed to change his play time.  I fixed up some clothes clips with 1 hour marked on them and he's suppose to bring me one every time he wants to play and can't play more then an hour at a time with a maximun amount for the day being 3 hours.  Hoping this helps.

Hello everyone! Happy happy day here, Kayleigh got her acceptance letter to her #1 college choice. She will now get to choose between her top state school and her top private, and without having to consider cost. This is an amazing gift!

Other than that, we had a staff meeting before work to discuss how we will handle the aftermath of the massacre at Sandy Hook school, then had a pretty regular school day.

After work, I ran some errands. I have a bunch of things to do tonight but I am so exhausted.  The kids are at their 4H TAG club's holiday party.

DH is at the post office dropping off packages for his parents and then picking up a CVS gift  card for my grandma.  Zeph and I are off to the city to take my grandma and uncle to lunch to celebrate an early holiday.  Tonight is the last volleyball class.  I know DH is driving and I may go along.  I should stay home and work on housework.  The place is a mess.

Morning Tracy and ladies.  Natalie ended up pretty sick Saturday night.  Fever and the whole bit.  She slept almost all day yesterday.  I am keeping her home today and Matthew woke up with a major headache over night so he is home this morning too.  I think he might go in later.  Gonna let him sleep a while.  This would be the best day for him to stay home since he does have finals Thursday and Friday with review this week.  All his are finals, he gets all new classes next semester.  He will start PE, he says he really didn't miss it but it's not big deal that he will have the class next semester.  

Today I am working on dishes, with so many sickies in the house I have fallen behind. Not too bad though.  I am hoping I can wrap a few gifts today also.  If Natalie needs something to do she will be making some pretzel treats with chocolate kisses.  Nothing going on tonight.  Just taking care of my sickly kids.  LOL  

I am still trying to figure out dinner.

Good morning ladies!  My truck is in the shop again Cry  Glad it acted up last night when DH was in the car to believe me that something was wrong finally, but I'm a bit concerned on the timing of everything since DH is supposed to leave tomorrow evening for Michigan, and as much as I would hope the car is done by then, well, my luck is it won't...  Really wish DH would see that its time to get rid of this thing.

Jordyn has mid-terms all week, half days.  I think her english midterm is today, then she has a few hours off and then works tonight.  I will be in court off and on all week this week, so I may not be around much, we'll see.  I should be into the chiropractor tonight, but with DH taking me to and from work it may not work that way.  I have some last minute packing for Madison tonight, dinner and cleaning.

Have a great day!
