Hello Everyone!

Boy am I ready for vacation. Life is just soooo busy.

Right now we are having a sleepover for my DS's 10th birthday. We took the kids to dinner and then to the see Monsters vs. Aliens in 3D. The kids had a great time. It's after midnight and only one of the boys has gone to bed so far. The others are still going strong.

I figured this was a good time to check the DIS.

We do not have a free day/night all week. I love the activities but boy do they catch up with you.

DS (10) - Cub Scouts; Little League Baseball (moved up to the majors this year); Spring Soccer, PREP (also referred to as CCD)

DD (5) - Tball - Wow only one activity for her right now. Last year was gymnastics, ballet, and ice skating lessons. I am thankful she only has one activity.

As for me, I am the Webelos Den Leader for scouts, the Team Mom for DS's BB team (well as of last night when the coach called and asked), Co-Chair for school fundraiser, I work full time and I am also working on my Masters Degree (when I have time to take a class)

So to say I am ready for vacation is an understatement.

I can relate to a lot of what you all are going through....DD was home sick one day this week and she is still not feeling 100%, anticipating layoffs at work, traveling a lot for kids activities, etc.

I am not trying to rush things to get to our cruise. I mean we have so many fun and exciting activities throughout the year. But I can not wait to sit back and relax. It is great knowing the kids can go to the clubs and have a great time and I will not feel quilty while I am relaxing at the Spa, pool, enjoying a cocktail. Ahhhhhh!

I will be taking some vacation time in June but that is for Webelos Resident Camp - 4 nights/5 days of camping. DS and I went last year and it was fun but exhausting. This is the roughing it type of camping. Not many of our parents are willing to take the kids to this camp. Kids would love it but the parents are not up for the 'roughing it' part. It's great fun and the best part is there are no TVs.

Well, we have to be at the baseball fields first thing in the morning for our Clean Up Day. We have to get them ready for Opening Day which is next Saturday. Then it's about three games a week through mid June.
So, I better sign off for now and get some sleep.

I usually don't have time to type things on the DIS generally just read what eveyone else is doing. But I've been wanting to tell you all a little bit about the kids and I.

Look forward to meeting you all on the cruise and seeing some of you at BCV before the cruise.

Regards, Lisa

Wow Lisa,

You sure are going to need to relax! But in the same time it is so much fun doing things with the kids.

What time did the kids finally go to slep last night?

I remember the little league days. They are so much fun. The field days! I always wished more parents would get involved.

Glad you were abel to stop in and let us know what is going on your life. See you soon.

take care
flo

Happy Saturday everyone!

Does any one have any plans?

We are going to a baseball game. My DS’s college baseball team is playing a Benedictine University in IL. We so much miss watching baseball we are going to go watch them play. It is going to be cold but I am excited.

We are supposed to get snow here some time in the evening mixed with rain (so much fun). It could be up to 5 inches. I so want it to go away.

Oh well you live in the Midwest you lean this is nothing new at the end of March.

Hope everyone has a good day no matter what they are doing.

Take care
Flo

Good Saturday Morning Everyone!

Well, just to let you know, I am feeling much better today. I did go to work yesterday and did fine. Just tired. So, I must be on the road to recovery! But for three days, ughhhh, I was miserable. Thanks for all the good wishes!

Well, today I have to go in to work too. We usually don't work weekends but today is National Passport Day so my boss wanted to be open to allow people who can't come in during the week an opportunity to apply for Passports today. She asked for volunteers, which there are only four of us in the office, and I was the only one who volunteered. Since we are salary I can't get over time, which is ok, because she said she would give me comp time. Which, hey, 5 hours off of a normal week day when I need to do something with the kids and not have to use vacation or personal time, why not. Especially when Brooke starts softball this year, her games are played during the day so I will need the time off to go to them.

Mary & Flo - hope the snow coming your way isn't too heavy. It is staying south and east of us. But watching the news this morning it looks like you are going to get hit. Hopefully it won't stay around too long. Stay safe!

Have a great day!

Yes, you will be able to just walk over to BCV from BWV. I did it last December a couple of times and it is a nice walk.

Today's plans

For me, I need to run some errands this morning and then make sure I get laundry done this afternoon. I also should pick up the house, but we'll see if that really happens. Tomorrow, I need to pack for a business trip this coming week and then if I get enough done, go visit my mother. My trip is out to the National Space Symposium in Colorado Springs. I'll be out there until Friday and will probably be going through DIS and FB withdrawal since I think that I will be way too busy to be able to log on.

Mary & Flo, I will wave to you from O'Hare since I am flying through O'Hare for both flights.

BCV it is

Well, I called MS this morning I was able to move over to BCV for the night before the cruise. This way we will be closer to the Saturday meet. Plus maybe I will actually get to Jellyrolls.

But since I am at Kidani in December, I am thinking about switching to BCV so there we will be close to the pre-cruise meet on Saturday.
We will also be there before the cruise. Congrats on getting it.
