I think we're back on track!
My kiddies went off to school this morning, there was a mixture of excitement and sadness, we all felt like we've had a week off school but didn't get to have any fun or do anything other than lay around drinking tons of fluids and nursing fevers.
But still, I was happy to see them go off, because it made me relax, it made me finally stop and take a deep breath and say "Ok...we're back on track!"
I spent the day cleaning the house, doing laundry and enjoying the quietness that I've so come to love.
I ran errands, I cooked dinner early so that it would be ready in time for Curt to take some to work. These long hours are tough on him and the poor guy hardly has time to eat and if I don't send dinner with him, chances are he will skip it all together and wait until he arrives back home in the wee hours of the morning.
While the house was quiet, I made this little Wishing Well. I had a tiny glass jar where I've been throwing all my pennies and now they'll be used for fun. All I did was take a Mason Jar, fill it with water and added a few drops of blue food coloring, threw in a few coins and set it on the windowsill.
When the kids got home from school, they were so excited to make a wish and they couldn't believe they had their very own wishing well to use whenever they want to.
Tomorrow the kids have early release from school and I have their Parent/Teacher Conference right afterwards. We're also going to check out the school Book Fair while we wait and then we have to run a few errands, so it will be a busy day.
Friday we may head to the Base Air Show Rehearsals, the actual Air Show is not until this weekend but it's going to be absolute pandemonium on base and I think we're better off staying indoors and out of the way.
I'm going to go wash the dinner dishes, tonight we had one of the kid's favorites Cheesy Tuna Casserole...and then we're doing homework, taking baths and sitting down to read from Beatrix Potter's book and the Children's Bible before putting them to bed.
I will probably make some more crochet cupcakes, catch up on my reading and watch American Idol. Which brings me to my question, do you watch American Idol? And if so, who is your favorite this year?
I am absolutely in love with Danny Gokey, but, I also like Lil Rounds.
Anyway, I hope you're having a wonderful Wednesday, I best get to it....see you tomorrow for Slow Cooking Thursday!
