Another one bites the dust...

We were doing so well this year staying healthy. No one had gotten sick until now. Ugh and it is me who is sick. Come on don't you know moms aren't suppose to get sick but I tend to be the one who gets sick if someone in our house is going to get sick. It is so frustrating. I spent all of last night running to the bathroom to throw up. I HATE throwing up. I got zero amount of sleep because my stomach hurt so bad. I thought it was maybe something I ate for dinner that did me in. This has happened before. I was finally able to fall asleep at 7am and slept til 11am. I thought I was doing better so I decided to get something to eat. I was feeling hunger pains. I ate an apple and 30 minutes later I feel like I need to puke again. My stomach is cramping, it just hurts. I just want to curl up in a ball and cry. I was suppose to sub today at school but I had to call in sick to subbing...lame. I have to go get the kids from school in about an hour and I am a little nervous about leaving the house. Last thing I want is to throw up in the van or on the side of the road. I really hope no one else gets this. GG is leaving on Friday for a winter retreat and I want to make sure she is healthy and can enjoy her time there. I need something to keep my mind off of the tummy pains. Ok I am done whining.

Back to the Grind

After having 16 days of getting to sleep in (most mornings 9am) today wasn't as bad as it could of been. Though I will say that I got a text from another mom asking about basketball at 6:30am, 20 minutes before my alarm was to go off and then when I didn't answer her text she called me right before my alarm went off. Now if you know me at all you would know I like my sleep. Even down to the last minute. The only reason why this was frustrating was the fact that the boys have been on the basketball team since the beginning of November. The practices have been the same days and the games are posted online. She asked if they had practice and a game today. Ugh.

Anyways, not why I got on here. This last two weeks have confirmed to me I can not homeschool my children. I would not get up out of bed at a reasonable time to teach them! Ha, just kidding not why I got on here either. It is amazing how relaxing those two weeks were. But starting back to the daily grind made me feel alive again. There was something comforting to getting back to the routine.

I have some goals for this year that I'm a little nervous to post about because I'm really not sure I want accountability on them. Ha. But I think I will post it anyway and just know that this is a goal and I will probably mess up. I want to be better with managing our family's money. We put A LOT on our credit card. Now I'm not saying that I am not going to use the card anymore but I am going to make sure that I'm not just buying stuff that we don't need, I sometimes do this. My biggest weakness is going out to eat. I love eating out. It's just so fast and easy but so unhealthy. So ultimately it means meal planning again. In tightening up on spending I hope to be able to use that extra money to pay down one of our loans. There is no possible way to get it paid off this year but I could do some shrinkage of it. Ok now that it is out there...yipes.

Lazy Days of Christmas Break

We have had a handful of days this Christmas break that we have just lounged around the house in our jammies All. Day. Long. I absolutely love those days. We have played so many board games and watched many hours of television it isn't normal but it is so relaxing and fun. I talked about taking the kids different places for fun but all of them cost money...roller skating, bowling etc. I have to say that this break since we haven't gotten together with friends or done much out side of the house except for go to some family gatherings the kids have gotten along REALLY well. I can't think of one time I had to listen to a fight or break up a fight. Pure bliss. It has been super peaceful. LOVE it. Today was one of our lazy days. I hope I can remember that the key to family bonding isn't spending a ton of money to do something fun it is just being together doing the free stuff!

Happy New Year!!!

It is the fresh start to a new year! I came on here to write but have eased several sentences that I have written. Not sure if I should just give up and come back later. Nah I won't come back. My first thoughts were to write about my goals for this new year but was having a hard time articulating them.

I have to say that I love the show Prison Break. Jeff and I started watching it on netflix at the beginning of this break. We have watched a minimum of 2 episodes a night and a max of 4. I love it. If I could I would do a marathon until I watched all episodes, I totally would. The funny part is I watch some of it behind my hands. There are some really gory parts like one of the guys got his hand chopped off by an ax. I sit there super tense while I watch it. I want to see how it ends but I don't want it to end.
