Happy Homemaker Monday 4.11.2016

Good Morning, Monday came so fast!

We had a busy but blessed weekend. Both our kiddos are dealing with head colds, but they are troopers, they got up and ready and off to school. Me and Hubby are the ones asking do you want to stay home? and we always get the same answer NO I have to go to school. love that! but secretly (or not) I really want to keep them home.

Our daughter has been crazy busy with school, up early so she can be at school extra early, staying late, then coming home and staying up very late doing homework. She was voted in and inducted Vice President of NHS, was on prom committee with Class Officers, and attended her Jr. Prom. Our Son was nominated and chosen to join the AVID program so we will be attending meeting tomorrow. Along with all our other appointments looks like another busy week, but its all good, and for this I am grateful.

Happy Homemaker Monday 4.4.2016

Good Afternoon, Didn't think I was going to make it today, Had a great morning, even made myself exercise but then I had a dentist apt, and looks like I'll have to go back again tomorrow. I had a hard night with a very bad Migraine and today I think I will head to bed early. I am trying really hard not to do much but relax with family on Sundays,  even if I regret things undone on Mondays, So here I am late in the afternoon chugging along.
