Since we've had a bit more activity on the board, I'm going to bring back some weekly features that hopefully will encourage more growth and participation to our board.

Our Monday Coffee Break is just time to sit and chat about stuff going on in your life right now.

Psh!! Manda!! It's not a party until all the guests are here!! LOL

Too funny about the role reversals there.

Sorry you have to be apart though. I've got a couple of weeks like that coming up in April and May that I am dreading. But, mainly just cause I don't like the idea of being a single mom to 4 kids for the time he is gone!!

I'm late to the party, but oh well!

Rants: dh is working out of town this week and next. Even though he'll be home for the weekend, its the longest we've been apart since we got married. It sucks, but I'll live. What's worse is that he's all cranky and sensitive about it and gets bent out of shape if I act like I don't miss him or say I wish he'd come home. Seriously? I can't change it, so why cry about it? In this respect, our male/female roles are completely opposite! Drives me crazy that he's so sensitive about what I say (or don't say!).

Raves: we actually get some tax money back this year! A friend from my birth class and her son will be in town next week. They moved away last yr. I'm going home to see my sis for her bday too next week. Should be nice to have a visit during the week when things aren't as hectic as weekends and my obligation will be more towards my side of family instead of in laws. We'll just pay them a quick visit. Ds is really trying more sounds and words. He started saying down today, or his version of it anyway. :)

Plans for the week: go running at least 3x. Take kiddo to pool party Friday. Make a special supper Friday and dessert for the weekend since dh will be home.

Manda :)

I wish I had a LLL group near me!

I hate laundry, I'm really behind too. And with 6 people in the house, that's not something you can really afford to be. :( But, I made a good dent today. :)

RANTS: Laundry, laundry, and more laundry. May I never get behind on it again.

RAVES: My house is cleaner than it has been in a month or two.

Plans for the week: My daughter is out of preschool for week, so my friend (who usually takes her after preschool twice a week for the rest of the day) will be taking her all day those two days. That's Wednesday and Friday. This works out for me, because I have a parent-teacher conference at her preschool on Wednesday, and F has a well-child appt on Friday morning. Otherwise, I think I just might make it to LLL tomorrow, if F sleeps later than 9 due to DST.

RANTS:

1. Dealing with some drama in one of my other mom groups over the past few days. So don't have time for it.

2. As usual, I have a lot of cleaning to do, and these next two weeks are spring break for my big kids. So 4 kids in the house 24/7 means even more messes to clean!!

3. I'm not a fan of DST, and I miss my hour of sleep. LOL

RAVES:

1. Yesterday was my birthday, and my family was very nice to me.

2. I went to a consignment sale over the weekend and bought a lot of cute summer/spring things for Charleigh!! :)

Plans for the week:

The only thing I am really pressed to do is get some clothes and stuff ready to put in consignment sale that is next week. Other than that, I'd like to get a lot of spring cleaning done in the house.
