It's been a while since I posted.  Some times I wonder where the time goes! 

Well I suppose this last while it has been eaten up by working!  I thought I was a SAHM.  I guess just cause I am working from home doesn't mean I am a SAHM!  LOL

I am looking forward to Saturday!  A day of scrappin' with friends!  It should be fun!

It's almost Valentines Day!

For some reason my daughter is completely obsessed with Valentines Day.  She's 4 who knows?  Maybe she thinks it's Christmas again?  Poor kid might just be disappointed?  I sure hope not, I guess I will find out tomorrow!

Today I spent most of the day crafting with her, she was making cards for her teachers at preschool tomorrow.  She had a wonderful time with my Stickles (glitter glue for scrapbooking) and my Smooch (a metallic paint for scrapbooking as well).  She really liked the name of the Smooch, I still think she thought I was joking!

Night three of the monkey girl sleeping in her brothers' bedroom.  I am thinking I may have gained a spare room, I am not sure that she will ever go back!  I did hear her say something about 4am.  Apparently she wanted a Kleenex, so brother one got down and gave her one.  Well at least I didn't have to get out of bed.  I am truly amazed that everyone is getting some sleep I thought it would be a total disaster!  Maybe camping this year may be easier with them all in the same 'room'.... time will tell!

Well here is to Valentines Day ... I am going to enjoy it a heck of a lot more than the year my hubby was fired on this lovely day (Fired with no explanation... but that's a story for another day!)

Busy Weekend

Well it was a long weekend for the Kids... they had Thursday and Friday off for Teachers convention.  We had a great time.  Making birthday cards and crafting!  I will be sad to see them go back to school on Monday, but it's another short week so I guess I will survive! :)

Well we started yet another project.  We have been getting rid of the carpet in the house (not sure why as it is the only thing that sucks up the dust bunnies!  LOL).  We started ripping apart my daughters room in preparation for the installation of her new bamboo flooring.  We did the boys room in the fall but haven't had a chance to get to the girls' room!  Well soon the extra flooring will be removed from under my bed and in our bedroom and installed in the monkey's room.  She was quite sure Dad should finish it today! Ha Ha what a clown! (Last time we did the boys room in a weekend, however I had to work today so that wasn't going to happen!)  Hoping we have a productive week and get it already to go for the weekend.  Right now the girl is sleeping in the boys room... so far so good! :)

Off I go to get some more work done!

Ya.. I got nothing!

I thought and I thought and still nothing... so here is the excitement of my day in lieu of anything interesting.

Morning: Boys up and off to school.  Daughter up and off to school.  Out the door into the truck, forgot something back into the house, back to the truck, back to the house, forgot indoor shoes, back into the truck. Then it was off to preschool, well sort of, got about 5 mins away and had to go back for the girls book bag.  Wow can you say forgetful this morning! To think we only missed one class due to illness, apparently that was enough to loose my brain!

So drop the girl off at preschool then it was off to Walmart to get a bit of shopping, which of course turned into way to much shopping.  It was mostly food so one can't complain to much!  I am sure it was stuff we really needed too!  (I went with a list with 4 items on it!)

After lunch it was a quick ride in to get some scrapbooking paper to work on the kids valentines.  I can't be normal and just buy some now could I?  Of course not!  I will try to post some pics when I am done!  My plan is pencil toppers for one of the boys, John Deere tractor valentines for another one of the boys and some little heart boxes for the girl... We will see what I actually get done!

So after all that it was home to put away the groceries and talk to some dude about an outdoor wood furnace (basically like a fireplace out side of your house for home heating).  Then the kiddos were home! Some supper, some work and here I am.  Next up... bed time!

Tomorrow it's reading day at the school, I get to go read with all the kiddos.  Should be fun!  For some reason I always dread it but I always really enjoy it when I get there!  (I am hoping to be bad and sneak out before Hot Lunch gets there.  I help out a lot but I am in need of a break!)

Anyway off to bed I go!

There is a light?

I am happy to report I am seeing the light at the end of the tunnel... I have been working on a project for way to long!  I think it may actually come to an end one of these days!  Bring on that light!

So one of my boys came home from school today.  Apparently he is joining the choir.  I think he heard something about them going to McDonalds!   Six years old and already he is motivated by food! HA HA!

Looking forward to spending time with the kiddos this week.  They get Thursday & Friday off this week.  Yipee!  (hmm, then they get the following Friday off, then the week after that they get the Monday off.  February is going to be a really short month as far as school is concerned!)

How is it that so much time goes by so quickly?

I am not sure where the last week went, not to mention the last month.  "They" say as the kiddos get older it's only going to get worse.  GREAT something else to look forward to, although I suppose teen age years and faster may be a good thing?

This week has been crazy as per usual, between kids with belly 'cleansing' issues, and a sick mom.  Not to mention 2 days of teaching and a project that just keeps getting further behind.  Oh yes and 2 cases of strep throat floating around the house.  Just another day at the office! LOL

Oh what am I going to do the week I have to teach 4 days in a row!  Ha Ha... four days of work poor me!  (If that was the only thing I did I suppose it wouldn't be so bad.)

We took the kids out for a skate at a local arena this afternoon, boy could I still tell I felt like heck.  Lets just put it this way, my skating was not stellar.  Not that it usually is!

I did get a new toy this weekend.  I kind of got to try it out a bit today... more fun later!  It's a Silhouette digital craft cutter.  I think it's going to be FUN! :)

But for now I must be off to bed!

Wow now that is better!

OK so what the heck happened... this week the snow is melting.  Last week it's like winter this week it's like spring.  Hmmm hope the cold air stays away for a while longer! :)

Crazy busy!  Worked all weekend teaching.  Just received my course evaluation summaries.... gotta love it when there is glowing comments! :)   This week is silly I am a volunteer at the boys school tomorrow, was at the girly's preschool today!  Work on Thursday then pass out on Friday?  I am beyond exhausted these days and just the 'regular' stuff is killing me!  Maybe it's the lack of sleep at night... still!

It was my first volunteer day at the girlies' preschool program.  It was amazing to see how well she is doing in a group situation!  I am so proud of her, especially since she actually listens and does what she is told.  (I was actually a little shocked at the kids that do not listen AT ALL.  That would drive me a bit crazy I give the teachers credit! )

I should be working on my other project but I am so tired I can barely think... so here I am!  I think I will be going to bed with the kids again tonight.  You would think 12 hours would be enough time in bed... guess more than 3 hours of actual sleep at a time would be helpful!
