Wednesday Ramblings

I have 37 other things I should be doing right now, but instead I'm hiding in my room for 5 minutes with my laptop. I'm sure the kids will probably destroy the house in the 5 minutes, but hey, at least maybe I'll be a little more sane than I was previously. Actually they are both sitting in Anthony's crib, Amelia says she is rescuing Dora from the crocodiles and Anthony is just laughing at her. Everyone in this house (except for me) is sick. Poor Jeff is making it to work, but as soon as he gets home he goes to bed. Neither kid is sleeping well due to the snot constantly exiting their noses so Mommy is tired too.

My mom is coming to visit in less than two weeks, I really need to get my house up to par. I know that it shouldn't matter, but really, it does.

I have a birthday party for a 1 year old to plan. Now you would probably think that this isn't a big deal but it is. First birthdays are a big deal to me for some reason. And since we don't have family around we do parties with our friends.

I've decided to start doing a little homeschool preschool program with Amelia. She is obsessed with school and I think this will give her something to do each day that is just for her and Mommy, no little brothers involved.

Anthony is on the verge of walking. He could do it if he wanted to, he just doesn't want to much yet. He is very strong and has good balance, but just doesn't want to let go.

Today is the second week of a class I signed up for with Amelia and again, we can't go. I don't want to drag sick kids to the class, but it still sucks that we are missing the class again.

I just bought a bunch of clothes on eBay for my kids. I am in love with eBay. I bought all stuff new with tags, but soooo much cheaper than in the stores. Mostly I'm buying gymboree stuff at Walmart prices. Can't complain about that. If my kids would stop growing taller they wouldn't need clothes so often. Okay my five minutes are up, off I go to change a poopy diaper and bathe my children.

Glad to hear from you. Hope Jeff and the kids start feeling better soon. Ssshh I'm an ebay junkie too! said...

Aww, bless your hearts. The colds got our kids the day before our trip. They are still fighting it 2 weeks later-- now the cold became sinus infections and blocked tear ducts. Those first few days are the worst. Hope everyone is feeling better soon!
