Good Sunday afternoon to ya. Just sitting here watching the little dogs play enjoying the fire and the quite. The sick little man is down for a nap and the 2 bigger kids went to grandpa & grandma's for the day. It's been A LONG WHILE since this has happened.. The quite is rejuvenating to say the least.....or maybe it's just the peace that's so nice. Either way I'll take it and a nap :-)
Off I go to grab a bite and then that nap....

Personal Note

Note to self:

If you EVER want to do a workout video on a daily basis or at the very least every other day you MUST do it in the morning whether the kids cooperate or not!! It won't happen otherwise...

secondly, if you don't want to eat the crap/chocolate/sweets YOU MUST NOT BUY THEM!!!!

Where's the willpower you fool!!

Thank you that's all for now.........................

Busy busy busy these days... After a week off of school Isaac has been back and all my hard work last week has paid off and he hasn't been behind at all! The last time he was sick for more than a day when he went back he had missed so much it was all to overwhelming and he had a major melt down once he got home.

WE ARE DOING IT PEOPLE we are taking the kids on a little mini vacation!!!
We never go anywhere ever and have decided to just do it!!!! We are taking a 2night 3day trip to the fabulous Great Wolf Lodge and we can't wait... We need to get away from this house soooooooo bad. It's been over 2yrs since we did anything like this.... AND the best part is that my best friend is going with her 3 boys at the same time!!!!

I also just got back from scheduling myself a little time to get some new artwork(it's been way to long)
Kids are all great, no fun stories to share and I haven't been taking pictures either, wonder why????
Little man is beginning to loose the fav. kid spot for me, you know he's starting to speak in sentences and have a bit of a tude so down he slides ;-)

Hope everyone is healthy,warm and well off I go to give allergy meds and chill....

This has to be the LLLLOOOONNNNNGGGGGEEEEESSSSSTTTTT week EVER!!!!! Dr.'s office 2x this week(the 2nd was spent there waiting for the first hour of nap time) Man o man and to make matters worse, yesterday for lunch I ate 1.5 doughnuts and today I'm eating a stupid Tino's frozen pizza AND I work tomorrow :-( blah blah blah, wa wa wa!!

****OH and I almost forgot the one good thing*** I received a call from the principal of the school that canceled the preschool program. Apparently they have received the funding to start a program in February and she wanted to know if I would be interested. UM YES yes I am, so they are sending me some info. I had hoped to get it today but oh well It's coming....
Do you know what the possibly means..........................I just might get about 2hours up to 4 days a week alone with the little man! That would be so awesome. I think I have only had time alone with him 2x in almost 2yrs... Oh and the miss would learn her letters and numbers or at the very least know what letters make up her name on sight!!! It's not for lack of my trying people BELIEVE me!!!!
Stubborn turds we've created (notice the "we")
I'm off to finish the doughnuts!!!

Time just moves to darn fast these days! I don't even know whats going on anymore..... Can't believe it's been almost a week already. Now I'm not one to have New Year's resolutions, just sets you up to fail I say.
About 10days ago I looked in the mirror and WHAM I was hit full force with what has taken place with my body due to the F-O-R-E-V-E-R depression that I've been in and man did it sober me up. I've been in denial that even though I've done diddly, I mean DIDDLY in the running or even walking department since EARLY September, I have continued to eat as though I have been.....

So I took it upon myself to get back into my healthy eating habits and I've been LIMITING the amount of sweets/chocolate that I'm eating AND I have been walking the dogs just about every night again(like I should have been this entire time) and the other day I took the 2 bigger ones for a little run and 2 or 3 times last week I did a video! (I have the sore muscles to prove it)

*don't get me started on how it's NOT a good thing to not empty your bladder RIGHT before you walk out the door to go running*

It would seem that I'm really taking to it again and I have surprised myself at how easy it is to refuse things(chocolate) when I really don't want it!!

OH and the little man is now saying a 3 word phrase................"there it is" or "there he is" in his toddler way but you so know what he's saying!!!

That's all for now, have a good one

Why!? why? why?

Imagine if you will a mom, calm, cool, collected..... Oh hell, forget it, imagine me!

I decided this morning that I wanted to take the littler kids on a special treat. As Norah said "without Isaac" smile in her voice and all... Yup, we went to the Children's Museum..(thanks again Andrea and Aimee:-))

ANYWAY I have one in the process of getting herself dressed and the other just cleaned up from breakfast and say to them BOTH I'm gonna run downstairs and change my cloths..... That-was-my-mistake............sigh..............................

I come upstairs (1 minute maybe) and this is what greets me.................
SERIOUSLY what the heck man, every time I turn around ESP.when I want to be timely and get somewhere.....

I get this all cleaned up (and no I'm not freaking and yelling and screaming if you can imagine) and go to do something (don't remember now what it was) and I hear Norah "MOM Ari alert, Ari alert" and yes he's now chucking wipes as fast as he can across the room......(at least that was not so messy)... I say to the room in general "man were never gonna get out of here at the rate he's going" ............STILL calm but now voice is raised cuz you know he's still not dressed!!!!

We get there and hey know what, about 3 different schools are visiting today!!!!!!!!!! I grit teeth and we go in...........................and have a blast :)

Stranger anxiety?? nope not here!

Look at that girl. Just look at her.....the last few months have really changed her, she's looking so big and grown!!!!! What am I gonna do?!?!?!?!

Every time you turn around! AND I'm not exaggerating here EVERY SINGLE MOTHER LOVIN TIME you turn around this is what you will find. Only with different variations of what he may be doing while up there. SOMETIMES he's up there shouting "HELP" while he's standing or maybe he's throwing things from the sink onto the floor or maybe he's throwing things from the window sill into the sink, the list could go on forever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ari I say as I kiss all over his face "thank you"
Ari I love you "I know"
Ari watch out(while I'm cutting big bro's nails)want me to cut your finger off "No thank you"
SMART as a whip this one :)

My new year's eve was spent with some lovely ladies and a few lucky fella's.....

After the littler kids were put to bed at 9 the big kid stayed up to watch Harry Potter with us.(don't ask which one cuz I've lost track) and you know what... Like always latley I ended up watching the whole thing with the big kid while Chris slept in the chair!! Tried to pause it to watch the ball drop(liv was dying to see it) and it turned out that my clock was 2min. SLOW!!!!!
