The week updates...

It's been a busy week.

With school having started on Wednesday and
all the kids getting back into the grind of
homework and going to bed early it seems
like as soon as I walk in the door at 625p I've
got to throw dinner on the table, check homework,
maybe throw a load of clothes in to wash, delegate
kitchen chores, sweep & mop, read bedtime book to
Caden - then listen to him read a book and it's bed time.
It's non-stop just like that.
Add to the mix every Thursday is football practice for Caden too.

My big news for the week is that I found out this morning
that my Dad is coming to visit next Friday!!!

I'm so excited!!
We have not seen him in a few years and I just can't wait!!

He is only staying the weekend so it will be a fast visit.

Can't wait to tell the kids when they get home from school!

A few weeks ago the TV repair folks came and took the
Hubby's TV away to fix it.

They had to order new parts - of course the first parts
were the wrong parts, so hopefully the Hubby will get his
beloved TV back for the start of football season.

My cell phone broke..
We are out of contract so I can get a new one if
we resign up for 2 years.
I've been looking online and there are so many choices
that I don't know what to get.
I do know that I don't need the flip screen to type
(think I've mentioned that I don't text much),
I've heard that the touch screens are a pain, but
they look cool. I'd like to get one with mp3 capabilities
since I don't have an ipod or mp3 player.
Decisions, decisions.

I gave everyone (except Colton) hair cuts this last week.
Chyann was debating having me cut her bangs.
I trimmed her ends and she decided no, not right now on the bangs.
I clean up the bathroom and five minutes later she
comes out with a hank of hair in her hand and a big smile
on her face! She cut her own bangs and was very proud of herself.
I did a little shaping on them and she now has long bangs -
about down to her nose. Why she wanted this I'll never know
because she now just pulls them to the side with a barrette?
What was the point of that?

Ok, my lunch break is about over so I gotta run..
BTW - work is going good, might get some OT tomorrow.

Have a good weekend :)

I give my kids and hubby haircuts too. I think I'm going to add up all I saved us over the years and see if can get reimbursed for all that clipping.

Hope you have a nice visit with your Dad.

Your schedule sounds like mine only this winter add 2 days of hockey, not football.

You're so lucky that your dad is coming to visit! I hope that Chy won't give herself a bang job like I did to myself!

Oh how exciting Kellie, your dad is coming to visit. Be sure to give him the royal treatment. I bet the kids will be really happy to know grandpa is coming to WI.
