Bad day at school

It was a bad day at school yesterday. She came home in tears. Nothing she had done...mainly she was upset because since the majority of the class was not well behaved yesterday no one got the special treat at the end of the day. And when she misses out on a sugary treat...it's a bad day. I had to snap the picture before going and comforting because it was just precious.

(OK - I have downloaded a bunch of pictures and have a lot of catching up to do on blogging.
I promise to be working on it over the next few days.

Knock....knock....

....who's there?!

ME!!! I am still here and alive. Do you know what I realized the other day about my blog? I never post on it because I'm never at my computer!! Ever since Eric was "blessed" with an iPad from work I use that...however I can't update from that so I find I'm rarely up here on the computer.

We had 3 snow days plus a 2 hour delay last week because of 3 inches of snow and about 1/8" ice.
Kids are back in school this week here and there. Holiday yesterday for Tyler...girls had to go to school to make up one of the snow days. Tyler goes to school Friday, but the girls are off for teacher work day.
I am still running. Yesterday I really fought it and it wasn't my best day...but I did it. I was having self-inflicted internal tantrums about things that didn't happen. If you were inside my mind you would totally get it. I'm slowly working my way out of it.
I have suddenly decided I needed to craft. I am following new blogs and getting ideas, spending money, trying to craft between chores...nothing is really getting accomplished....both chores and crafts. But oh well..I'm enjoying it.
Eric has started working out again and I'm very proud of him. He gets up at 5:30 in the morning to go to the gym. He's trying to encourage me to get up at that time too so I can get things done before the kids get up....and as much as I want to in my head...my body doesn't really care to be up that early...but I keep thinking that one morning I'll succeed.
We thought one of the dogs was getting really sick because she decided to stop eating for 4 days. I didn't rush her to the vet...I tried to give it sometime, but she wasn't getting better. So as soon as I took her to the vet, spent $200 for blood work and it came back normal...then and only then did she decide she could start eating again. seriously?! Only Maggie.

So - that's that. You haven't missed a lot. I promise I'll try to do better.
