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

I remember those days Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, Mothers Club, dance school, karate, scoccer, It was alot of fun, But I know I can not keep that pace today. Sometimes I wish I was still doing it. And then I think again ...what am I crazy

I think on Monday, that I will be landing at O'hare at about 8:15 or so. On Friday, I will probably be there around noon.

Hmmm, I'm getting curious. I still need to figure out mine. I am debating between 2 different things.

Not doing much here today. Mike has to work from 1-11. It's just the kids and me at home. Nick was dx with strep yesterday, and while he doesn't feel horrible, I'd just as soon not run around. Give him time to rest up a bit.

Getting ready to go listen for some sonic booms in about 10 minutes. They will be our first ones!

Well those of you on facebook know how I spent my day. We went and got an iPhone. It is something we've talked about for a while and now seemed like a good time.

I've had a fun afternoon with it and I'm so glad we got it.

Robbie - I'll be thinking of you as you land at O'Hare. Enjoy your very short visit to our area.

Flo - I love watching the Magic and Wonder sail. Haven't done it in a while.

Those of you staying by the port the night before the cruise I recommend heading over to Grills to dinner and to watch the Magic leave. We've done it before a couple of our Wonder cruises.

Karen - sorry to hear that Nick is sick. I'm sure the antibiotics are helping. to our smoothie son.

Mary,

The closest I can come to IPones it the Samsung by Sprint.

I love watching the Magic and Wonder sail. But I have always seen it from the two palms cam.

Enjoy your evening.

take care

OH MY! We were at Lowe's and I was just pushing the cart out to the car when we heard two VERY LOUD booms! Car alarms were going off all over, I had completely forgotten the shuttle was coming in today! What a surprise!

I am going to call on Monday to see if I can get another stateroom. Our massage therapist would like to come with us as caregiver for Patrick, so Chuck and I can have more time to ourselves. We just got back from a 7 day and we realized we need a caregiver to cruise with us. I am sure there's a waitlist.

Any good ideas? Connie

Hi Connie!

Gald to see you drop in. That must have been something hearing that noise and not know what it was and the alams all going off! Not sure what the heck I would have done.

Not ideas on getting a room. Just wanted to send some your way. Hope you can get one.

take care
flo

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.

Have a great day!
Chris, glad you are felling better.

Hope everyone had a good Saturday. We did not do much. Just went out to do a little grocery shopping and I added some vacation pics on Facebook. Now, I am getting ready to put DS to bed and get my clothes ready for church tomorrow.

Hi Flo!

At 2:00am I had to make the last two go to sleep. I would have let them stay up later but we all had to get up early in the morning for practice, field clean up, etc. I think they were all back up before the sun came up this morning. I crawled out of bed at 7:00 to get my shower and then make them breakfast. I made the mistake of promising pancakes for breakfast. Ugh. Cereal will be on the menu for the next sleep over.

Turns out it was raining early this morning so no practice for one of the boys. Our field clean up still took place but I was so lucky. For the field my DS will be playing on they told us we did not have to stay. They were working on the dugouts and did not want the kids out on the field. So, I turned right back around, crossed the street, and headed back home. I have to say this is my favorite sport in town. It is wonderful being able to just walk across the street for the games. It saves so much time. And if you forget something. You can run home and get it.

Soccer game tomorrow. Calling for thunderstorms around the time of the game so we may get tomorrow off too.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
