Happy Monday.....what's on this week

Monday, Monday, la,la,la,la.....Thankfully I think I have a quiet week on the calendar but dh is down in LA for the week teaching classes. It seems like we haven't seen him much lately. Besides my own trip, he has been either working late to work on his class materials or at drill! We are taking off for vacation Easter Monday. I'm looking forward to spending 13 hrs in the car together with no other distractions but the road!

This week, let me see....I just have a few things to orchestrate. I need to get a final head count make sure my wives group social tickets are purchased. And then make sure my Staff Appreication plans are rolling smoothly for next week. If none of us gets sick, at least I won't have any appointments! LOL

What is on your agenda?

What are you watching this week? Anything good on tv? I'm a little disappointed with the Tv this season, which is a good thing, but I usually have 1 show I follow! Nothing has my interest. I am not a mindless channel surfer, so I've been reading more! Not a bad thing....what are you watching?

Kimberly, here's hoping your week goes smoothly! DH Rick just returned late last night from Long Island for his brother's wedding. With my surgery, it made more sense for me to stay home with the boys (we were/are also sick with colds) although I really wished we could have gone. I don't necessarily get along with his whole family (although it's civil) but there were people I wanted to see, especially the bride and groom! Anyway, Rick is working long days Mon - Thurs so he can take Friday off. So it will be a long week, but worth it.


Thursday, Maribeth (sister and board-mate!) will be driving into town with her two little ones, and her DH will

Happy Monday!


Today, Essie had her last class of this ballet session. The parents were able to attend, so we paparazzi members crowded the edges of the room, aiming cameras and videocameras towards visions of pink and lavender. Too cute. Essie was a little shy, her gaze did not once divert from the ballet instructor's figure, and she showed us her little dance moves. My parents were able to go, so that was a nice treat.


Just a regular week for us ... In the mornings, we do our schoolwork. Right now, we're on our second week of our unit study on Oceans. Plus, Essie is learning to read, so that's fun, too. Our afternoons vary.


Tuesday afternoon

I love roadtrips with Preston. He is so chatty in the car. Sometimes, on our drive home from somewhere, I tell him, "Let's take the long way home" because he is just a lovely conversationalist in the car. = ) FUN. Where are you going for Easter, lady?


And whatcha been readin'?

Nora, I hope you're feeling better! It seems like it --- just in time for a busy week, huh? : )


Your post made me hungry for all sorts of Polish and Irish food. YUMMY. And how sweet to share those birthdays with your sister's little ones.


You'll have to let us know how the parties went!

This is interesting...reading about what you all do in a week. It is inspirational how much you all are involved in on a weekly basis!

We have had a busy week so far, but in a different way than normal. Saturday, we had a family over for dinner...we're just now starting to get back into that now that DS is 4 months old. It has taken me that long to feel like I can handle everything! Needless to say, we spent Saturday cleaning the house (it needed it!). My DH says he hopes there is a day when we can have people over without having to spend a whole day cleaning the house! Don't I wish I could stay on top of it like that?!

Sunday, we drove 2 hours (another thing I am feeling all right about doing now that DS is 4 months) to visit DH's parents. His mom is taking Chemo and radiation for colon cancer...in preparation to have the tumor removed and we haven't seen her in a couple of weeks. She seems to be doing quite well, so we are thankful for that.

Yesterday, we drove 1 hour to visit DH's brother and his wife. That was a nice visit and now we are all caught up on visiting his family! We'll go visit my mom for Easter.

This week is Spring Break at school...I still have to come to work (unless I take vacation), but it is such a nice change of pace without the students around. The town is so great too...with the students gone you can actually eat at a restuarant without at wait and go shopping without a crowd. So, that is what I plan to do this morning before I go home and trade off with DH. I'm going to try to make a pound cake...DH's grandmother has the reputation for making a great pound cake and I think I can do it. We'll see.

There will be a healthy mix of playing with DS in there...he is starting to grab at toys (and put them in his mouth), so that is fun. He can roll over (from tummy to back), but he doesn't care about it too much. He has been grabbing his ear lately, but is not fussy while he does it, so I am trying to ignore it (lest I constantly worry that he is getting sick).

Have a great week!

I hope you are feeling better for all the company and for the party. How cool you get to celebrate with your sis's kids. You are so lucky! I hope you are feeling well and that the kids enjoy it too!

Ahh...too cute. You'll have to post some pics of our little prima! And I've been thinking about (actually it's the reason I got on the 'puter just now) Essie's Dr appt. I hope she doesn't have to go through that. I'll continue praying for her recovery in our evening devo's.

Robert and I are great travel companions. It's how we first got together. A mutual friend of our 'set us up' as site seeing pals. Both of us were just out of long term, dead end relationships. We weren't looking to date but we were both new in town and spent a lot of time alone hiking and driving to different attractions. Thus a perfect match---we met and have literally (except for the Marine Corps) have been inseperable.

Easter Sunday-late. Or Easter Monday morning, we are going to drive up to my parents for the week. Jeremy has Good Friday off of school, we could leave then but I love our parish and the sence of community we have been able to build in the last year. I don't want to leave in the midst of the Tridium either. That is the bummer living so far from family, if we are not careful we could end up spending all the holidays in the car and missing the whole point of the holiday! I put my food down for Christmas already. We go NO where for Christmas. It's too rushy and cram packed with people who want to see us. I sort of hate being like that since the hoidays are supposed to be spent with family, blah, blah, blah...with three kids, time zones/kids sleep schedule+excitement+xmas cookies, Santa following us around PLUS the comercial hype...it's just easier to celebrete Advent and Christs birth at home. We've been creating memories and our own traditions without all that extra drama!!

*sigh* we are just going to spend Easter week with my family in Oregon. And we will see dh's family this summer (July) over in Salt Lake City for his family reunion. I guess we'll do another Easter egg hunt at my mom's which will be fun. They have 10 acres, 5 of which are green, green lawn. The other 5 is timber....I'm so looking forward to a little retreat to my old room. I crack the window and to hear the trees and smell the coastal fog in the mornings.

Have a great week. And don't worry about travel with a baby...this is the best time to travel!! Everything gets harder as they get older, not hte other way around.

You'll have to let us know how the pound cake turned out. And keep us updated on dh's mother too!

: )


I'm going to call the doctor tomorrow morning and see if the colonoscopy is really needed. She seems to be doing much better, and I'd rather take the wait-and-see attitude now that I know that she may have just worked something out of her system. I'll keep you posted. Thanks for remembering. You're so thoughtful!
