Today was a very busy day. I'm going to make this short since I'm as exhausted as I can get and still be I started the day by deciding that I'd better get the groceries before I got too Jon and Evie didn't want to go, so Allison, Isaac, and I headed off at 9 this morning. It was an expensive and long process. I won't go into detail but I just can't understand how one week my bill can be $180 and the very next week it can sky-rocket to $300 and I bought the SAME stuff! After we got home, I noticed that my mom had called and so while the kids unloaded the van and put the groceries away, I called mom back to see how her trip to my sisters went. She said she had a good time and was hoping that I'd go to lunch with her. I said sure and off we went once everything was put away and everyone was ready. We picked mom up and decided on Golden Corral for lunch. I ate entirely too It's a buffet style restaurant and I guess I just didn't know when to say The kids really love this place and all ate really well. Luckily, they don't weigh you afterwards and charge you that way because Isaac felt like he gained several pounds from Mom and I decided to venture to Target after lunch and I was able to get a wreath holder for my front door and I also bought one of those animated lighted deer for the front lawn. I also got the littles some more pj's. I took mom home afterwards and we helped her hang pictures and stuff back on her walls since my brother repainted the house while they were gone. By the time we got home it was 4pm. I was so tired I wasn't sure that I could make dinner but I did get it done. We had Minestra soup w/salad, french bread, and fruit salad. So far, we've got Evie down for bed and I'll start working on Isaac after I write this. I'm afraid that I did too much again today and will probably pay for it tomorrow. I need to learn how to manage my energy levels Obviously, we did no school today or really anything except the groceries but it was nice to spend the time with my mom and tomorrow's another day. I have a lot of plans for this week and will post my goals tomorrow. I hope everyone had a good day!

Sounds like a busy day even for a non pregnant person, you must be exhausted! Maybe a lot of your groceries were on sale last week and none were this week? That must have been quite a shock.

Your decorations look quite pretty but yes the lighted deer will add a nice touch for little ones!

Lisa, sounds like a nice break from the usual school day!

I'm exhausted reading about your day...wait I'm just exhausted, I guess. ::snort::

It was certainly not a typical day at our

The bill was shocking but not too unexpected. If I knew a bunch of people here, I'd start a veggie co-op like De'Etta because I'm pretty sure that's where most of the money went.

The kids took it upon themselves to add to our lights and I'll take a picture tonight. I've heard that they are spectacular but I was already in bed when the redecorating

Thanks, Kristine. It was a very nice day and a good way to start the week. I do enjoy spending time with my mom and hopefully I'll do it again


Get some rest!lol I've been down that road and know how horrible this particular illness is and I'm praying for you and your whole family!

I had to laugh to myself when I read tha that you bought pjs... Do you know that it's 17 below here tonight and my boys will NOT be wearing any pjs.. nope they only sleep in their underwear. Sometimes I can put a night shirt on Nathan after he has fallen asleep, but not before.... I don't see how the can sleep with nothing on.. but they are always warm when I check on them. Anyway... I had a moment of laughing to myself when I thought of your littles sleeping in pjs in what - 70 degree weather or so? and mine sleeping in nothing but underwear in -17 degree weather.
PS: We were just talking about you guys again tonight to some friends of ours. They laughed over us staying the night at the house of someone I had only met on the "internet." (LOL)! It's hard to explain SHS to someone.....

lol Well, Evie won't wear clothes to bed either. She loves to wear the PJ's in the morning when she first wakes up. Isaac on the other hand can't stand to be cold and must wear them every night even on warm

I've found that people just don't understand about SHS. When you came down I had everyone thinking I was nuts to open my home up like that. I kept thinking though, what did they think would happen? With 4 kids and grandparents, I felt pretty safe even if I hadn't gotten to know you for quite a few years before your It was definitely FUN!
