My oldest dd got sent home from school today due to a fever of over 101. She was sent home Mon from school b/c of a tummy ache but after some rest she was so much better Mon night & yesterday. Hope she hasn't caught strep from kids @ school & feels better soon. Personally I think it's b/c she was up both nights prior to being sent home until almost 9 & hopefully after some rest today she'll feel better. Going to call the Dr. tomorrow if she's not better by then. On a good note I brought her to the dentist @7:30 am & she had no cavatities emoticon& then made it back in time for the bus emoticon which now didn't matter since she was sent home sick emoticonFurnace repairman came this morning to see what was making the loud knocking sound in the basement pipes. We had turned off the heat down their b/c it was keeping us up @ night & now it isn't working in half the room. Now i"m in the process of moving some stuff around & hopefully that'll thaw the pipe if it's frozen. Now trying to sort & get rid of some of that stuff that was stored in that corner of the room. What're you doing?

Today was my dad's bday, wish I could've been there w/him to celerate but I needed to pick up dh from train & then after picking up dd from preschool we all got ready to enjoy our kids preschool holiday ball(best one ever so far, woohoo!). So thankful he recieved his bday card in time, unfortunately his & my mom's anniversary gift has not arrived in the mail yet. Enjoying my alone time sparking right now since everyone's dead asleep. We have a busy day planned for tomorrow so I should be getting ready for it but just enjoying reading & typing for now. Have a great night emoticon

So excited my dh is flying back from CA & for my kids holiday ball tomorrow. Dinner, live entertainment & a present from Santa given to every child. Great family memories. It's always so much fun to see how happy it makes the kids. My to do list for tonight. Track nutrition, prepare&eat dinner, cardio, ST, pack the kids lunches, do some more xmas cards & laundry, get the kids bathed, fed & in bed by 7ish, cleaning, put out the trash & recycling etc... and I'm sure I'm forgetting something always do. Today after dance & bringing my son to school I treated myself & DD to getting our nails done & completely forgot how the repairman for our basement heater was coming this afternoon so I rescheduled him for Thur am. Hope to be back in time since DD has a dentist appt & then drop her off @ school. I really don't know how working moms do it all, but I'm sure like me you gotta do what you gotta do. I'm so busy being a stay@home parent & am always trying to figure out how to do more. I can't imagine trying to squeeze in work as well right now. I'm so thankful dh can support us all.

Should be organizing my desk but am enjoying sparking instead. I bailed out of my walk this am but promised to walk w/my spark buddy later this week. I just wanted to do some cleaning, organizing and resting today and it felt great. I got the kids to bed before 7:30 emoticonTrying to keep them healthy too! Going to try to get to bed @ a more reasonable hour. I've been up late the past couple nights & yet still must get up early b/c the kids don't care emoticon

    I do the same thing... I hate going to bed early, but it makes it so hard to get up in the morning when I stay up late! (And by late, I mean 10...)

My daughter is an early-riser too, so it's just painful if I've been up late the night before!

Remember back when we needed alarm clocks?? :)

    Sounds like me. I should be grading paper, but I'm sparking instead. emoticon
I know I love my kids, but getting woke in the middle of the night is killing my am workouts. emoticon
I wish you the best of luck in getting some more ZZZs and having kids that sleep in. emoticon

I guess I've developed a new routine of only blogging every other day which is fine. Just been enjoying life a lot lately. Enjoyed my friends co & going on her party bus to a few places in Boston last night w/my dh & her buddfies. Needless to say it was not a healthy weekend but thankfully I felt good this am but need to stop the bingeing which began this really early this am w/the pizza & then bagels this afternoon. Man why are carbs so addictive? Bought elf on the shelf a few days ago for the kids. Hope I can keep remembering to move him every night/or early am. I love the kids reactions in the am. Got to do more xmas cards, ready for tomorrow & the never ending laundry. Wish me much needed motivation, lol.
