Hey there,

How is everyone? We are doing well. Everyone seems to be getting over their horrible glad...and macy's half way through her antibiotic drop treatment for an ear infection. Thank goodness February is almost over. . .doc says this is the worst month for viruses.

Today we went to see my mom before running errands and Surprise! the kiddos were still home..mia was delighted to have uncle Karl all to herself to play memory and then bb. (I guess they had late start due to "icy" weather. :) Hilarious...but I guess Up in the hills out there maybe it's icy?
Anyhow, so we did our our errands run and then came home and I battled ky into bed, he has been having a super hard time lately, but he gets up too early and I know he's overtired, so He actually slept for and hour and a half..I'm so so glad.
Also, we have mia's little friend eiley here, so her parents could both go to fundraising...Mia was so happy..(what a fun day for her, huh? :)
I guess she deserves it since her surgery is coming up on thursday.

Well, enough randomness for ya...I guess i should go switch laundry and get ready to get Brooklyn.
have a wonderful day!

It is time

Hey there,

I figured it's been long enough, perhaps I should update! :)
Here's the thing, Nothing really so new to say! ;)
still the same ole' I drag myself out to my big comfy chair in the living room each morning at about 7am...depending on how much squabbling is going on over which show to watch on netflix...sometimes it is a bit earlier or a bit later. I drink myself into a caffeine high ;) and proceed to get kids breakfast and dressed for the day...then we drop kiddos off at school, then usually run an errand or two or visit a day last week we actually tried out a gym and I actually did cardio for a whole 20 minutes...I know! shocker! :)
At 11;45 we pick up ky from kindergarten and go home and get lunch. I then spend a bit of time debating over whether to do some housework or leave it all for later and relax a bit when the kids have a quiet time...I usually am an idiot and choose leaving it for later...however today i didn't do that and feel much better about myself and my day. (note to self, leaving it for later doesn't actually help me be more motivated at all) anyhow, then around 330 we pick up brooklyn and head home to have a snack, they usually play outside a bit then we do some homework, get dinner etc. Then do bedtime, chores etc.
So,that's my life in a nutshell! :) I know, super exciting!
There were some variations from this in the past week. lets see..on monday we signed papers, refinancing our house which is pretty cool cuz we now pay $150 less a month for our mortgage. Then we went out for our valentines dinner at the olive garden. It was nice (we celebrated together a day early) Cuz on valentines day we took the kiddos to a family party at a friends house. That was wild, with a ton of sugar involved (The kiddos were trippin! ;) but it was fun!
Then last night I went out and cleaned at the church property and then went over to a friends house for a glass of wine, so that was nice.
This weekend I get to go to the youth retreat with dh, so that's gonna be fun!
Anyhow, that's what's up over here.
P.s. yes, I know this has been one long run on sentence, so if you got through it, congrats and thanks for reading, hope you are well.

So today we decided to pack up and head out to the aquatic center that's 20 minutes from here. So we got all dressed, cleaned up, packed up suits and food etc. and headed out....only thing we forgot's not always open swim. The kiddos were pretty disappointed but we made the best of it! ;) We ended up playing at the skate park next door. Well, it's not really a skate park. . just a bunch of ramps and DH in his great wisdom ;)had thrown in the kids scooters and his roller blades (secretly I think he wanted to go to that pool so he could play there, but that's beside the point :)

Anyhow, it is a beautiful sunny day was a reminder of good days to come (and ones gone by) I started getting so excited for summer. It does the soul some good to see some sun! So, we played a while and then headed to costco to further make the kids day! :) They hate grocery shopping, but anyways :) (that is also, beside the point! )

Now Martin is off at the Rose garden and we are just hanging out, watching some quality tv etc. :)(hello kitty) I think we'll play outside some more and do some play-doh and then have a movie night. Good times!
Have a great evening.
