Had such a fun time at Mom's Night Out and the roads were not bad at all either direction because the temps soared to 35-40. We enjoyed some yummy homemade soups, salad and cornbread and then shared Thanksgiving blessings and personal testimonies before heading to the theater room to watch "Mom's Night Out" with popcorn and soda. I skipped the soda.

This morning I headed out to Bountiful Baskets and the grocery store. Picked up those needed items for Thanksgiving so I can avoid the busy stores this week. Once home I tackled the house cleaning. Floors and bathrooms. This afternoon I did some bills/receipts and now am enjoying a cute Christmas movie while Sparking. Next up is printing the labels for the Christmas cards and I'll work on getting those ready to mail other than stamps as those haven't arrived yet in the mail.

Tomorrow... worship and getting ready for our final day of co-op until January. Big party day so it will be fun.

Began the day at the gym with the trainer and it went great. The elliptical was much kinder on my tendonitis and then it was straight to the circuits with Josh. He had bumped up all the weights on the machines for me today too. Sweet, huh? Was nice to hear he felt I had improved a lot in our short time together.

Once home it was laundry, school and getting the last big project for co-op done so I can actually enjoy my December break. Leaving in two hours for Mom's Night Out and that will be fun. I am the driver tonight and have three other moms coming to ride with me! The party will start earlier that way. LOL With the roads as bad as they are it just doesn't make sense for all of us to drive.

Tomorrow... Bountiful Basket, house cleaning and the gym.

Today has been a quiet one overall and I'm thankful. Started out with schoolwork and then had time while the kids went sledding to do some email and spark stuff before lunch. We headed to the Rec Center about 1:30 as Isaac was meeting Kenzie at the pool today for physical therapy. Decided Maegann could swim too and were thankful her swim teacher was guarding today so she didn't have to do the required swim test to be in the lap pool. While they swam I finished one big co-op project for January...the new class helper list! We're switching some classes so needs in different rooms go along with it. We then stopped and visited with dad for a little while as it was nearby. Had to hunt down his shirts...found them in another guy's closet! Crazy... Now that we're home, supper is in the oven baking and I'm Sparking.

Tomorrow... trainer, school and Mom's Night Out.

BL Challenge - Team Emerald: Today is our final weigh-in for the Fall challenge and the start of the interim weeks for the Winter one. Looking forward to the Winter Freeze Off! This was our teams name suggestion so it was fun to actually win!

    A nice quiet day except for those darn shirts. We had that problem with my MIL when she was in rehab.

Hope your weekend is stress free and relaxing.

The day began at the gym and had a good session with the trainer. He works with me for 45 minutes even though I am only paying for 30. I have to admit that I am liking Josh's circuits much better than Rocky's and I am shocked to say that because the others were solid. I think the main difference is Josh is using the weight machines more and Rocky never did. I enjoy those more than anything. "Core on the Floor" is something I can do easily at home so nice to not have 100% focus on that now.

Once home we got schoolwork finished before it was time to get Isaac to counseling. I even got the Christmas letter printed out by that time and the stamps are ordered. Our local PO doesn't carry them have to buy them online. I think that is silly.

Quick lunch at home and then it was off to meet dad at the surgeon's office. I stopped at his "home" to grab his winter coat on the way. The staples came out today (yeah!) and the surgeon said it was healing nicely for the extent of the damage. He did have one spot that was ugly because of dead skin, but the surgeon that also was typical. All good news, but dad was not happy that he won't be weight bearing for 6-8 weeks. Yikes!

I am once again procrastinating on some co-op work even though it wouldn't take much time, but watching a Christmas movie and sparking is much more appealing.

Tomorrow.... school, Isaac's therapy and may try to go to the birthday bash at the rehab place. Just depends on the timing as it is the same time as therapy.

    Its not like you to procrastinate. Christmas movies call me too though.

Sounds like a good day overall though.

Today has been a great day for getting a lot done! This morning found us taking Isaac to physical therapy for a change due to the icy roads so while he was there Maegann and I did the Angel Tree shopping as gifts are due Monday and then we had extra time so we stopped at Starbucks for a warm drink. Enjoyed my vanilla tea very much! After Isaac was picked up we went to visit my dad and I didn't like seeing him so tired. I will meet him tomorrow at the surgeon's office for the next follow-up visit. Praying the incision is much better since Friday. We then met Tim for lunch before coming home.

Once home the kids went sledding so I dug into the papers on my desk. Had just enough to get through it all and finish a few things before they came home and then they got busy on schoolwork. Now it is time to head out so I can drop Maegann off for craft night and then drive to the Board meeting. It may be a long one again as we have another tough subject to discuss. Tired of those this co-op year!

Tomorrow.... school, the new Christmas tree arrives (that was fast), dad's doc appointment. Other hopes... print out the Christmas letter draft and start getting the Christmas cards ready.

    It is upsetting to see a loved one having energy problems. I know my mom when she was very sick, just didn't have much energy at all!
