Well hello friends. I took a small break after Christmas, mainly because I really didn't have much to say. We are well started into the new year and I have determined to make a fresh start of things. No resolutions, just refocusing. I have joined my local Y. I am giving myself 3 months, if I don't use it regularly (I am aiming for 3 days a week) then I will drop my membership. On monday school will resume, and I am hoping for a bit of a fire to be lit not just in me but the kids.
Homeschool moms please tell me I am not the only one that wakes up some days and wanders why in the world I don't just put those kids on the bus?! So many days I love homeschooling but when you hit that wall it is such a struggle,ya know??
Other things I am looking forward to in the new year?! I am beginning to plan a small road trip for me and the kids and the Wee Camper. I am hoping for some place warm and sunny. I do hate cold weather! Anyone live on the East Coast that reads my blog and has suggestions I would love to hear them :)
Here is something fun, my husband made a snow machine and has blown snow for my kids twice now. I know crazy, but that's what you do when you live in the South East and rarely see the stuff. I was raised in PA so I have had my fair share of snow days, my kids however have never even been sled riding. So we took it in our own hands to have some of the white stuff to play in. They think it is awesome and I am pretty impressed by my husband if I do say so myself.
We came home from church on Sunday to find my poor puppy was not her self. She had been squinting all morning and I thought nothing of it til we came home and she had green gook in her eye. So first thing Monday we took her to her Dr and she had an ulcer in her eye, so now she is on antibiotics to chase away the infection and clear up her eye. Poor thing she was shaking all night Sunday from the pain, I felt so bad for her. Good news she is on the mend and back to her old spunky self!
I hope everyone had a great Holiday!
