This week has been remarkable! Below is a recap on what we've done each day and are what else I have planned.
Monday- Cole went to Vickie's and Carly went to work with my dad, as a CAT/Dozer operator and I worked in the office until 4pm. Came home and made Raviolis for dinner.
Tuesday-I woke up at 7:20 and had to get the kids fed and ready for school. I dropped them off at school with a huge smile on my face.....I do not work on Tuesdays and Thursdays and I have been day dreaming about being able to drop and pick the kids up from school and be at home while their at school. I came home and began cleaning my car out, weed eating, edging, and mowing. I also ordered take-out chinese so I didn't cook at all! I will follow up with some pictures of our house when my NEW camera gets charged. Back to our week. Tuesday was fabubulous because it was spent at home. I also watched my nephew Connor while my sister was at school. I finally get to be the watcher for once. This fall is off to a great start:)
Wednesday- Woke up at 7am again and promised that I would set my alarm the following day. I like to wake up before the kids so that I can drink coffee and be fully awake when I am making breakfast. I don't like to have my house disastrous when I leave for the day. Took the kids to school, went to the office for a couple of hours, went to Eureka and ran work errands until 3pm. Came home and the kids were riding Speck (horse) so I came home and they rode home... I made Tacos for dinner.
Today- Woke up at 6am, hip hip hooray!!! Going to make breakfast, take Carly to school (Cole spent the night at my mom's house.) Going to come home and finish mowing and doing laundry. Going to go up to the office and work for a couple of hours. Vickie is watching Connor and picking up the kids from school. SHE CAN'T GET ENOUGH OF HER BABIES. I can't thank her enough and I have the best mother-in-law!!! After work I am going to come home and pack for our labor day weekend. My mom, Janelle, Connor, Cole, Carly, Vickie, and myself are flying to San Fransisco on Friday and renting a car and driving up to Vallejo. We found the flight for REALLY cheap. We have all been driving a lot lately and really don't want to have to drive 5-6 hours each way. We are going to Marine World on Saturday and Sunday and then on Monday we are going to Pier 39 and San Francisco before we fly out, Monday night. The kids are jazzed about going on an airplane:) Tonight I am making black eyed peas (beans and ham) with fresh bread. I hated beans as a kid but now I love them. I especially like them on Indian Tacos on Day 2.
Friday-Work if I need to. Finish packing and cleaning up the house because I don't like to go out of town with a filthy house. Travis will be home working but he doesn't make a mess.*If he is working and by himself:) We don't fly out until 8pm so we may have to have Indian Tacos, we'll see.
This week has been a day dream for four years. Since Cole was born I have dreamed about staying home (A couple of days a week) and worked at my house. After four long years I have accomplished my academic goals and now I am moving towards my personal goals. Chat with you soon. Danielle
