Let's give LTP a try--if the thread gets long, we'll just go into part 2 and then 3 and so on :) And the winner of LTP for this month is also LTP for 2012! So lets get to chatting!

Hubby's supposed to get up early to double-check some work done today after he had done an inspection, then hopefully he has a bit of time to nap (to replace the missing sleep-in time) before taking the boys to his parents' place. I think I'll be here on my own for a few hours with time to do a bit of grocery/miscellaneous shopping without any kids! :)

We had snow in the air for a little bit but none of it hit the ground.  Right now I'm listening to the rain. :P

Way too warm for snow, great weather for ducks.

Goodness Becca you were busy today. Shayne's home so we are having a multitude of lazy days. I really have to do some serious cleaning soon. I had a physio appt today so that was a 2 hour workout, then when I was shopping my back totally spazzed. I had to take 4 Ibuprofen and lie down. It is much better now, it had me a bit concerned earlier. I'm not quite sure what I did or what it did, but I don't want a repeat any time soon. It is getting quite late I better hit the hay.

Lindy - I was thinking the same thing about the missing team boards!

Becca - I use a hot shower to clean out my sinuses as well. I am looking forward to my shower in a few minutes. I am still all congested. At least it has moved from my lungs to my sinuses. Upward is progress right? ;)

I have spent the last 3 days working on getting my house cleaned up.  I have all the Christmas decorations down and out of the house.  The living room is in pretty good shape, but I do need to get under the furniture again soon.  The kitchen is decent, but one of my counters is covered with a lot of papers.  Mail and Christmas crafts mostly.  We won't discuss the kid's rooms.  Surprised  My goal is to have everything cleaned and organized before the kids go back to school on Wednesday.

Leona - I remember how much I liked the duck pond in one Kelowna neighbourhood, so your duck reference made me smile. It also reminds me the boys haven't seen the YouTube Duck Song video in a while... ;)

I'm sorry your back hurt after your appt! Take it easy and keep the ibuprofen handy! (I still feel like ibuprofen works way better for me than acetaminophen, but a combination of both is great when a migraine comes around...) As for the cleaning, you'll get to it when you're feeling well. It seemed like December didn't have many good-health days for me to get on top of my cleaning, so that's why I'm attacking it with vigour now. ;)

Cindy - I hope your cold moves on out soon and you're able to get everything cleaned as you want. I haven't taken down all the Christmas decorations yet, but they'll be moving that way soon. The tree should be the last, Monday or Tuesday at the latest.

I'm going to have to chat with the pharmacist or doctor in the next couple weeks - I missed two days of pills (blame holidays plus being under the weather) and now it's like I have AF here again in the middle of the cycle. I expected spotting, maybe, but this is definitely more. Booo. I wonder if it means the level of hormones in the pill is wrong for me and I have to switch again, which is annoying.

Hubby took the boys to his parents' place around noon and I got a bunch of cleaning done. Also phoned my mum, though I was probably less productive during the call. ;) After an afternoon snack, I got a walk in and expected them to drive up as soon as I started watching the Doctor Who Christmas special. ;) It's a good one so far (halfway point).

Howdy all!  Sorry I didn't get on here last week.  We had a great trip to the beach.  The boys both did awesome on the drive there and back.  I have their bag unpacked but not ours.  We did put away the Christmas tree today and rearrange the family room again.  I still have to do the village pieces (not lookiing forward to that).  All the pictures are on fb now.  

Little x has been coughing alot and runny nose...started running low grade temp now too.  The coughing has been going on for 2 weeks now so I am going to call in the morning and see if I can get him in to the dr.  Rather do that than take him to the ER like we did with X on Christmas night.
