Hi everyone. It feels like a long time since I was at work (last Wednesday).  I was really tired today, didn't sleep well the past couple of nights, but the day passed pretty fast. After work, I stopped at the bank to order Euro's for Kayleigh's trip

Ian had a regular school day, Kayleigh had a regular school day and then science club.

I am making potato/pea soup and grilled cheese for dinner.  After, we are all going to a wake for a neighbor.

Hi ladies.  I was writing out a post late Friday evening and my Safari crashed on my ipad.  I lost everything I wrote.  I was almost done.  But, what I wanted to say was thank you for all your support and posts.  It was a very emotional time but we also had a great time with our family.  We drove home straight thru on Friday arriving home late Friday evening.  We just didn't want to stop one more time and pull out the suitcases and still have to put them back and drive home.  We just wanted to be home and I was doing fone so I finished up the last leg home after dinner.  

Today I am so being lazy.  But I was lazy most of my weekend.  I have done some laundry today and kitchen stuff.  Time change hasn't been an issue since we did out hour jump on Tuesday.  We've been one hour ahead all of last week and we just maintained it.  I am concerned with the amount of make up work for the kids.  I dropped the girls off early this morning to get help from their Language teacher on the research paper they were working on when we left.  We emailed her over the weekend and she told them to come in early today.  I just took Matthew in today cause I took the girls.  It was raining pretty good this morning.  He'd have to wait in the rain so saved him from getting soaked.  He's finally all better, still a little cough going on but dolng good.  Tim picked me up and we had lunch together.  I am now making potatoe bread to go with dinner which will be chicken soup.  I plan to make some sugar cookies, its premade stuff so easy as pie.  I'm in the mood for cookies.

DH is meeting MIL, SIL and a cousin for lunch.  MIl is now staying with SIL.  The visit went well, and  I'll be much less nervous next time.  We do have some kinks to deal with- mainly her wanting the TV to be on all the time.  Seldom does it go on before 8pm (weekends too) in our home.  None of us liked the intrusiveness of the background noise.  I also found out that she does not like kale smoothies and thinks Arugula in her salad is exotic. Wait til she tries endive, escarole or frisee next visit.  Bettrer yet, I'll mix it up with a mesclun base!

Zeph and I are missing the lunch out since he has Lit Group today.  I have not seen this mom lead before, but have heard that she is a bit weak (comprehension, scratch the surface, not get to the meat of the book) so I think I will observe.  We'll stick around at the library and get some work done there.   After the grocery store, Zeph has some hands on history projects to work on.

French toast and sausage for dinner with strawberry banana smoothies.

I'm swamped at work.  I cancelled a 9 a.m. meeting i had with the lady in the other division that i am "helping".  I need to clarify some things with my boss at our 10 a.m. meeting about my responsibilities to see if I had a misunderstanding or if the other department did as to what exactly my role is to be.  My understanding was I would be providing help to them when they are busy and have a lot of work to do.  Their understanding is that I would completely take over the functions of that particular job and I can tell the lady is upset that I told her on Friday I didn't have time to do the task she wanted me to do.

The kids are on spring break this week.  Jordyn is at home today, she was going to go running and then spend the day cleaning her room.  She also has a chiropractor appointment.  Emma is at the daycare with Madison, I think they may have a field trip today.

Not sure what's for dinner.  DH was with the kids all weekend, I ddin't get groceries before I left and he only went and bought what he needed for the weekend, so there isn't much there to eat.  I am not sure when I will have time to get groceries...  I need to finalize DH's sales tax paperwork tonight do whatever invoicing needs to get done so we can get the computer back to the accountant to get started on the taxes.

have a great one!
