Monday is already not starting off well after a very stressful weekend.  Got an email this morning saying Jordyn's prom dress may not arrive in time for prom. Frown  This is about last bit of bad news I need right now as prom is a week from Saturday, Emma's birthday party is this weekend, and that does not leave us much time to find a back up dress if needed...  Taxes are due today and we got hit with taxes that we were not anticipating either.  I have back to back meetings at 10 and 10:30 then a project to work on this afternoon and all week long.  And DH just called me and Emma is not at school yet.  School started 45 minutes ago. Cry  I'd like to go home and go back to bed now...  

Hope everyone else's day is good!

I hope your week gets better.  That is awful about the dress. When will they know if it will get there in time?  DH filed an extension last night for our taxes.   We owe and the deadline snuck up on us especially since DH was out of town.

Good morning!  I'm waiting for DH and DS to wake up to run the vaccuum.  Then I need to dust, mop the kitchen, and zip to the grocery store.  DS can give the bathroom a quick cleaning. 

Planning to squeeze in some school work somewhere.  I'm hosting game club this afternoon which should be a fun time for the kids. 

Tonight DS is suppose to have his first tennis lesson, but I think it will be cancelled due to the weather.  Rain rain go away!

On a side note, DH came back from his trip with an opportunity to travel to Singapore in a few months.  While in Vegas he took on a different role than normal--the same role as the person whose job it is to go to SIngapore.  He thinks he is being considered for a different positon and he would like it, but the person who had that job was based in TX and while I would be willing to move in summer 2014, I want DS to be HERE for 8th grade.  We will see how things unfold over the next few months.

Good morning.  It's s decent Monday.  Didn't start off at it's best but not bad either.  Natalie has been wetting her bed off and on lately, even when she doesn't drink anything.  So she had an accident last night and I threw her sheets in the wash this morning.  It's sent thing off kilter as far as washing stuff, I had planned to wash mine and Tim's sheets and dry them when I got home so that got started later then desired.  Also, Matthew's bus was really late and I ended up taking him and that messed me up just completely.  I use my morning time before my shower to do some clean up and dishes.  I did them but I was running out the door.  Walked into work just one time.  

You WIL NOT believe what I am doing again this year!  Natalie is buying her and I tickets to attend another Justin Bieber concert.  I at first said no way, I've never been to Columbus and didn't want to have to drive in an unknown city on top of that, we would be driving all the way from our home to Cincinnati that same day and I'd have to drive us from Cincin, to Columbus and back to Cincin that same day.  Told her impossible, that I can't help dad drive to Cincin and then drive to Columbis and back on the same day.  Told Tim about it and he said he can drive to Cincin so I can drive to Columbus and back.  So went back to her and told her it was a go.  She has to earn her allowance for every penny between now and then for both tickets.  Ugh, what am I thinking?  Reason we are going to Cincin in July?  Oh yeah it's in July.  Tim's niece will be getting married the Saturday after the JB concert.  We were making a quick trip of it, driving up on Friday, wedding on Saturday and driave home on Sunday.  Ya'll pray for me and my patience with her on this.  

Nothing after school today.  Homework and housework and chores.

I forgot to lay dinner out.  I will figure it out later.

I talked to my brother about the taxes, he said if we could pay within 120 days we can call them and make payment arrangements, but if its longer than that we need to fill out a form. I need to call DH in a bit after my meetings and find out what he wants to do. I'm just overall frustrated on the financial front lately, and this and possibly having to buy another dress when I've already paid for one dress does not make me happy. All the email said was " we may receive the order around the end of April, they will do their best to deliver it soon." I am in a bit of a panic on what to do at this point. It sounds weird, but I have my brother going out over the next day or two to look in Michigan where he is at to see if he can find something very similar to the dress she ordered or the other really expensive one she liked, hoping they may have a different selection or whatever up there that may work. If not, I am going to have to arrange DH to watch the girls Sunday so we can go out looking again...

Hi all. Kayleigh had a regular school day, then stayed after for science club (they made ice cream) and to work on her ceramics project.  REport card posted today.  Ian had a regular school day, started fourth quarter, so he has health this quarter instead of family/consumer science.

Pretty regular work day for me. I started recess duty (I have a three week rotation every 9 weeks) and it was a pretty nice day out.  It was also payday, yippee

For meat free Monday, we are having a barley/butternut risotto and salad. THen the kids are headed to their 4H TAG meeting. I'll be catching up on a couple of tivo shows before Dancing with the STars
