Today was the last day of Summer Vacation for our daughter. She starts second grade tomorrow. Getting her to bed on time was a little tougher than I'd hoped for but a lot easier than I'd expected. She was out like a light within 10 minutes of... Read more

This has been the longest week of my life - I swear it! It has been full of a few ups but mostly downs. On Sunday, Tony and I celebrated our 5-yr Anniversary after he worked a 12-hr shift. Keep in mind that both kids were home, Keiran was... Read more

Keiran's fever is still coming and going, but at least it's more going than coming at the moment. We've become quiet proficient in hiding the tylenol and motrin in drinks, food, or whatever else necessary to get him to take them so the fever wi... Read more

Well, I had high hopes this morning. Keiran slept pretty good last night and had no fever when he woke up. That was short-lived, however, as the high fever was back by late morning and we have fought it again all day. We are having better luc... Read more

I have to say that my big workout plans for this week are not quite working out. Keiran is still sick and has a fever. Unfortunately, he's not cooperating about taking meds today like he did yesterday. :( Tony and I alternated last night sta... Read more

Well, I'm sure glad I didn't take the day off yesterday. I haven't had a choice but to do just that today. Keiran woke up in the middle of the night scared and shaking from the thunderstorms we were having. This was unusual enough since he no... Read more

I should've known better! After the last two days of nonstop cleaning and being productive around the house, I had planned to take today as one of my days off for the week. I succeeded through the first half of the day. But by the time... Read more

Today has been another productive one. I managed to finally get the baseboards in my dining room painted, plus I did the entire hallway. I also finished the reconstruction part of the Dresser-to-Desk project and got 2 coats of paint applied to... Read more

Today has been very productive - I've gotten lots of cleaning done, including shampooing the carpets in my living room and starting a repurposing project for my daughter's room. She has a dresser that she doesn't really need that we're turning ... Read more

It's Tony's day off so we took the kids down to the Splashpark and met up with some friends. Normally the pool would be sufficient, but because of this heat advisory we're under for a few days and a heat index topping out at 115 degrees, the po... Read more
August 3rd - Taking the Day Off
Wednesday, August 03, 2011      5 comments

I figured I'd use today as one of my days off for the week. I'm bad about working out everyday and not giving myself a break, so I've vowed that I'm going to try to take 1-2 days off a week. One will probably be all that I end up doing because... Read more

I'm still hanging in there. My day started off good - I was up and had most of my housework done before 10am when Tony left for work. The majority of the afternoon I relaxed and worked on some genealogy stuff. When I finally realized I'... Read more
