Off the top of my head...

I was on such a roll with blogging, but yesterday I just didn't have it in me.

I fell asleep on the couch at 4pm, slept for almost an hour, and then fell asleep again before 9pm. 

David's on vacation this week, so that's also kinda throwing my week off. We always use his Spring vacation just to hang out at home and get some much needed stuff done, which is pretty much what we're doing this week.  It's just so far been a busy week though.

Through word of mouth facebook stalking I found out about a co-op group that was in our area and geared towards younger kids Olivia's age.  They meet about twice a month to go on field trips or meet up at someones house.  Yesterday, they went to pizza hut for a tour and make their own personal pizzas.  Olivia and I joined them and she had fun.  I was also excited to meet other homeschool moms like me!!!  They were all so nice and there was not a blue jean jumper in sight! We're excited to join them for their other trips and think this will work perfectly for us now.  It's so hard to find groups for pre-school age (most co-ops around here start with elementary) and I think this will work perfect for us at the moment.


I've actually been in a rut with her and school lately.  Though we have been, I haven't felt like really doing school stuff with her.  I think a lot of it is because I decided a few weeks ago, to re-do the same curriculum we did this year, next year with her, only in more dept.  Olivia's at a hard age due to her birthday.  She is three, but if I go by "school age" she is still only in a " old two" preschool class.  So, I often find myself feeling like she should be doing more than what she is, but I have to often remind myself how old she actually is.  But it's funny because when I talk to other homeschool moms, I always get "your doing way more than I do." Yesterday got me excited to get back on it with her more seriously.

I also want to blame it on the weather because this weather has just put me in a blah mood in general.  I'm so over winter.  I'm so over it being 70 degrees one day and then 30 the next.  It's freezing cold AGAIN today! It's been really nice the past two days and today its freezing.  We're supposed to get warm weather all weekend starting tomorrow and we are all so ready for it.  Olivia may have had a little meltdown at breakfast over the fact it wasn't summer yet. We have a couple of outside things planned but we need the weather to cooperate.

I failed to mention that we celebrated a birthday on Monday!

This guy turned 31!

 (we had a double birthday)

He's not so much into celebrating birthdays these days.  We celebrated with the family over the weekend and then went to dinner with the parents on Monday night.  He's decide he's celebrating this year by doing the Tough Mudder in April.  If you've never heard of it, it's basically ten miles of hell, though it is for a great cause.  He's been working his butt off since after Christmas and it's starting to show.  I may look like a whale at the beach this year, but my hubby will be sporting a six pack. 

Oh, and he may have mentioned that he wants to do these with me.  I'm putting it on the blog so I have record of it. 

Thank you all so much for the congrats over our new baby girl! We're super excited about her and even more excited Olivia will get to have the sister she so badly has asked for.  I think there's nothing like that sister relationship!

Happy Wednesday! : )
