Hi all. Workday for me. We had a party to celebrate a teacher friend's 10 year breast cancer survivorship anniversary. It made me very happy.

I'm doing pretty well today but a little frustrated. Kids this morning behaved really well and work went by quickly. Then the frustration set in. I was trying to send out a group email and ran into issue after issue and finally gave up after 45 minutes. Got home to find out that I have to drive a 4th extra carpool leg (out of 10 possible legs) within a week. Kids are sick so they are staying home which means someone else has to drive. It can't be helped but timing stinks. Dh rearranged his work schedule today so we could have a date night and now it will have to be interrupted or postponed. :P

Megan has swim practice tonight and Evan will have a decent amount of homework. First semester grades were not good and he has a new "system" I imposed (but he agreed to willingly) of nightly work. Dh and I are supposed to have an at-home date night (see above) and watch Downton Abbey. We'll see how that works out. Dinner is chicken tacos using leftovers from the chicken I baked Monday night.

I really should do some work around the house for the next 45 minutes but after spending 2.5 hours mucking out Megan's room yesterday, I'm really not motivated to do so...

Today I don't have to be at work until 10:30. I am trying to dig my way out of a pile of chores that have to be dealt with. The dog is also not feeling well and left me a special surprise this morning. I think her sickness has something to do with the paperback book she ate a chunk of on Tuesday night. DS missed two days of school with a stomach bug, so I have been bleaching the heck out the this place, no one needs to be getting sick right now. I still have to figure out dinner, it will be something with chicken.

Hi, all. I am moving slowly today. this cold seems to have settled in my chest. Bleah. I went in to school at 8 this morning to work on some Volunteers in Education business, filled the car with gas, came home and Lysoled all the light switches, door handles, remotes, and appliances. I've got laundry going right now, I cleaned one bathroom, and now I am lying down for a little while before it is time to go to work. I work in theofficetoday from11-3 then I have Homework club til 5. DS should be done with practice by then, so we will head for home when he is done with basketball.

Good morning ladies, its Thursday! How are you today?

Great! I've felt behind since...hmmmmm? October? Well, first the holidays, and then everyone got sick after Christmas and the kids went back really late (Jan 9th)- then had some short weeks, interrupted by sickness...

I finally feel like I'm starting to dig out, get organized, getting back to the gym, doing my PT, etc... it's just nice to not feel underwater.
