Week 6

Wow! Last week was busy with extremely long days.  This week I look forward to a long 4-day weekend thanks to the school taking both Friday and Monday off for President's Day.  I tell ya it's coming at just the right time.  I need a couple extra weekend days just to catch up on stuff at home.  Today will be another super long day.  I have a huge work meeting that I'm in charge of running and won't get home until after my kids and husband have already left for karate so I won't be seeing my family today until after 7pm ;0(  Thankfully those days are few and far between because I really hate that.  Time to regroup and head into that meeting.  It goes from 8 am to 6 pm--blah!

In the meantime take a look at pictures from last week:

Day 35- Monday, 2/4/13
I caught a beautiful sunset on my walk with the dog this evening.  I'm so happy the days are getting longer and it's staying light later.  Walking the dog in the dark is no fun after the Christmas lights come down.

Day 36- Tuesday, 2/5/13
Rusty is addicted to Pounce treats and the boys enjoy taking turns indulging him.  He's so excited for his treat he doesn't even realize his tail is wrapped in the drawer pull.  He's gotten so big and long.  I love those tabby stripes.

Day 37- Wednesday, 2/6/13
This afternoon we were in and out of the car multiple times.  It was one of those really long days.  Justin had his conferences after school, then off to the Mind, and finally a late ending Boosters' meeting.  Long days are not my friend especially since I start my days at 4:30 am.

Day 38- Thursday, 2/7/13
Brandon had his conference today and then after we had to make a Target run for fresh fruit, milk, cereal and snacks to get us through the rest of the week.  All my kids are doing great in school.

Day 39- Friday, 2/8/13
What's my husband always say?  "It's Friday night on the ones and twos!"  This is how he unwinds from his week.  He just can't get enough of his music.

Day 40- Saturday, 2/9/13
It's the end of winter water polo.  Today was their last tournament and the end to a great season.  Now all focus will turn to the high school swim team.  Practice has already started.  Not sure how Tyler does it, but he really enjoys it and loves having the extra time with his friends so that's great!

Day 41- Sunday, 2/10/13
Here's my Bella girl waiting for someone to play with her.  These are just a few of her favorite toys.  The green octopus is the only one that has stood the test of time (almost 4 yrs) but even that has seen better days.  I'm hoping to find another one soon before this one gets completely destroyed.  The rubber chicken in the foreground has only been here a little over a month and is now missing its head and legs.

That wraps up another week in 2013!   
Thanks for stopping by and see you next Tuesday.
