Depending on how you look at it I am either late or early☺. Yesterday was a pretty good day at school. The weather is nice right now so the kids are a little wound up, but not too bad. Today should be more of the same. This afternoon is coffee with some friends after work. Tonight DD has dance and DS has theatre after school. DS and I need to give his Eagle Scout proposal packet the once over, and do some applications for a few special classes he is trying to get into for next year. One is a petition for an AP class, he missed the grade cutoff by just a hair, so he is being encouraedition petition to see if he can get into the class. No clue at all on dinner yet.

Hi all.  Very tiring day.  Our teacher is still absent. I was sharing the coverage with another TA, and our sub didn't show up.  We're putting in additional time that we aren't being compensated for.

Then the health insurance co sent a denial of benefit for Dh';s colonoscopy that he had, $6,000.

Ian had a regular school day, Kayleigh had school, stayed after, then annoyed me at dinner and now the two are at a TAG meeting.  She is starting to make me look forward to when she leaves for college

Doing a little cleaning and then going to relax but I feel like there is not enough wine in the world

Thanks ladies. I have talked to the insurance company and am slightly frustrated with the process at the moment as the earliest they will have any decision, including anything about a rental car is early next week and DH doesn't want me to get a rental car through our insurance. Jordyn has work most of this week, sigh. She had a chiropractor appointment scheduled at a new chiropractor on Wednesday morning also that we need to deal with.

A very busy weekend. 

We left Friday morning to drive to Kristen's school to see her concert that night.  And to meet the bf.  She "said" they weren't dating.  But this guy comes out of the music building with her and says "Hi.  I'm Eric and I'm dating your daughter".  LOL  They're so cute together, and they both really like each other. 

It wound up being more expensive than I wanted.  Liberty had it's "College for a Weekend" program for incoming Freshman, and there was no place to stay as of last Monday.  Dh got us into a B&B.  Which was very nice- it's been a very long time since we've done that.  But it was $60 more than the hotel we usually stay at.  We had already promised Kristen we'd be there, and she was looking forward to seeing us (and she wanted us to meet the BF)

Her concert was very good.  One of the better ones we've been to.  It was a movie theme, and they did a very nice job with several selections from Les Miz.  People were recording it, and then the professor in charge of the program told us all afterwards we'd have to erase it.  They pay royalties to be able to perform these songs, but you can't post anything on the internet.  Kind of a shame, it would have been nice for the grandparents to be able to see it. 

We drove back Sat after feeding both Kristen and the BF.  Then over to a high school 30 minutes away to pick up Becca from All-State auditions.  No, she did not make it.  She ranked 37 out of 37 violas.  In fact, the only kid from our high school that made it, made it by being a 1st alternate.  Which means if someone is sick he gets to play. Which didn't happen when Kristen made alternate for Sr. Regional.  She was a grump Saturday.  And I didn't want to hear it- esp since we'd been in the car for the last day and a half. 

Sunday was spent with friends. 

I've done several loads of laundry.  Need to go to the store (I need to work on menu planning too).  Becca has orchestra practice tonight.  I'm thinking pizza with the spaghetti sauce that's leftover in the fridge. With a store bought crust- that's a doable dinner for a night I've got to get out of here.

Good morning. Laundry is going. Soon i'm going to clean the kitchen while Zeph finished the cover of his newspaper. This is the culminating project of his CIvil War studies. Today we'll take it to Kinkos to have it bound. I also need to pick up dog food and a birthday card for my mom while I am out and hopefully get Z's hair cut. He's been mistaken 2x now for a girl from the back. I will say that his hair is lovely grown out. Maybe lunch out.

I also want to make an appointment for Zeph to see the eye doctor for contacts. He isn't seeing out of his glasses as well as he was so it is time for a new script. If I am understanding correctly, he'll gets a 3 week trial of contacts with the initial office visit and another visit at week 2 to make sure all is well and then on week 3 we go back and decide if we order contacts or not. I'm glad he gets to try them out before we commit. His frames still fit his face, so we can just order new lenses for his glasses as back up.

DH is having fun in London. It was significatly less for DH to fly out on Saturday so he has had a few days of fun and exploring with a couple of coworkers. Ill be happy once he is home. This is the last of the travel for a while.

Housework and school on the agenda for the rest of the day. Tonight I am making bacon wrapped chicken breasts stuffed with brie and asparagus with a side of wild rice.

I am on my iPad so please excuse auto correct typos. My computer is going nuts today.  Plus my charging cord for my iPad isn't working and I will Ned to run out soon to get one cause I am at 6%. This was a crazy morning. Woke the girls up and went down to start breakfast. Came up to make sure they were stirring and woke Matthew up.  Found Sara sitting outside Natalie's door and the last time she did that her hamster was running lose in the room.  Well, you got it.  Hamster on the lose. All night, made a mess of our carpet in a corner.  But, I did decide that the hamster will now spend time with me downstairs in the family room.  That way I can keep an eye on when's she leaves the door off.  That is how the hamster gets out, she leaves the door off cause she gets preoccupied with her iPod and walks away.  She agreed she was being irresponsible.  Prior to all this I managed to get the dish washer loaded and ready to turn on.  It's running now.  Kids are at school.  Still nothing on a job start date.  I am starting to worry.  I plan to call and see how things are going today.  It's a laundry day today.  Nothing tonight.

Dinner is going to be a crockpot "roast" chicken.  Potatoes and veggies.

Good morning. I am at the dentist with Madison. Starving because I didn't eat before we came because she couldn't and I was up a good portion of the night and got up a bit late. I got Emma on the bus and we are here, but it'll be another 30-45 minutes before they start her procedure. :0(. But she's playing contented with Mr. potato head. After this we are off to breakfast then depending in how she's feeling, either the grocery store or home. I need to clean out my truck today and do a bit more laundry as well as more paperwork for DH. A trip to the chiropractor later today also. We are having lasagna for dinner. Have a great one!
