Week in review

This week in review - is not much of a review. lol. It was another sick week for the Ross clan. This time, it was mostly Autumn. 

But here are the few pictures that I took this past week....

Saturday, I finally started feeling like a human being again - I had spent a good 3-4 days dying from a headache and fever.... then it was Brooklynn's turn. 

Sunday we had to go shopping for an antenna for our TV so we could watch the Super Bowl... we don't have cable (we rely on Netflix and Amazon), so Ron went and found an antenna...

Meanwhile, I went shopping for Valentine's shirts. haha - amazingly, I found this shirt at WalMart!

That day we practiced doing the Valentine Cards we were going to make in my class... Autumn's turned out SO cute! If you want to see more about these cards, you can check out the post on my teacher blog HERE

Random picture of the day... we have to lock up the fridge, in addition to all cabinets and drawers. lol

And because Caroline is such a fire cracker, she's always getting hurt.... this time the kitchen bar stool fell on her foot. I seriously thought the bone on the top of her foot might have gotten cracked, but she started walking on it just fine after a few minutes. 

annnnd.... who needs an excuse not to fold laundry?? I certainly don't need one, but Caroline sure does give me a good one. 

Because we've all been so sick, we just stayed home for the game... so I made football meatloaf. lol

They looked better before the cheese got all melted - haha

Also, Caroline graduated to a big girl mattress! Girl got potty trained and got out of a crib all within a week of each other.

I'm not sure where pictures are from Monday - Wednesday... lol

But Thursday, it was my turn to stay home with a sick kid. So, I got to go to Caroline's dance party at her school. 

This girl.. she is SUCH a ham!!

On the way to Brooklynn's school, B found a bandanna in the car (random things you find in a car, right??)....
B: "What is this thing??? OH!! I know!! It's one of those things you put over your eyes and then you try to figure out what's in your hand!?"

lol... totally made me laugh. 

After I dropped off B at school, I headed back to Caroline's school for the dance party. 

It was so cute. Girl wouldn't stay still for me to get a good picture though. 

She was obsessed with these balloons.

Oh, she melts my heart.  

This was all fun and games until mama had to leave - she screamed and cried so loud and for so long (they said)... it almost makes me not want to go to things at her school, because I know she'll do that. I hope she grows out of that soon.

Meanwhile, when we got back home, Autumn was "doped up" on medicine (Motrin - ha!) and was feeling well enough to help me do a practice on our dino snack for school tomorrow.

Dino snack! There's a "fossil" in the middle of all the "earth's layers."

After I picked up the girls, I decided we needed to have a break for dinner... so we headed to one of our favorite places - Long Doggers. We get to sit outside and listen to music.

Autumn is always mesmerized by live music...especially when it's a girl. lol 

They were so well behaved! I was actually getting compliments on taking the 3 of them out by myself and they were behaving so well. lol #momwin !

Friday was back to work.. then I came home and it was time for relaxing....

and let me tell you... whenever Ron grabs the vacuum and starts cleaning (in any way, actually), it really just makes me happy. lol. 

And when Brooklynn and Caroline play so nicely together, that just makes my heart happy too. So I guess you'd say it was a good Friday night. lol

Well, I hope you enjoy your weekend! I will be trying to get rid of this cough - I'm pretty sure my bronchitis is trying to make a comeback. Ugh. I am SO tired of being sick.

Death Becomes Us

Life lately.

This last week has been absolutely crazy. I think I want a Mulligan on it. Please. lol

It started with last Friday. I went out to dinner with some girl friends to celebrate Jenni's birthday.  I was really tired the whole time, and thank goodness my friend drove me, because I almost didn't make it home...and it wasn't because of the margarita! haha

Saturday, I promised the girls I'd take them to get them some Valentine's earrings, so we headed to the mall. I totally need to go back to grab this hat...

and by the way, when your husband has an engraving machine, you never know what's going to show up engraved, or attached to something that's engraved. lol

We got home, and Caroline boycotted naptime, so my workout was accompanied by a little giggly ham. lol. I had to really modify my workout, I could feel the sickness coming at me.

And then the little one and I hung out on the back porch and enjoyed the wonderful weather. 

annnnnnd, then that night, it hit me....hard.

and Sunday... this is all I was doing....

Monday, I wasn't feeling as bad as Sunday, and thought I could handle the day, so I went to work, and sent all the girls to their school too...

Brooklynn was celebrating her 100th day on Monday. 

I, on the other hand, came home from work on Monday and slept the rest of the day away....again.

Tuesday, I had a field trip and was feeling 50% better, so off I went to work.  However, while I was on the field trip, I got a few phone calls about C being sick. Oh. joy.  Ron went to get her (he had to leave work...), and I rushed home early from work and took over. Sick...and field trip tired. 

But man, with a dose of medicine in her, she was all giggles. 

Wednesday, I started feeling human again.

A full day at work and then off to a birthday party....

and when I got home, I discovered yet another thing was engraved. lol...the girls now have their own stools so they can stop arguing about which stool is theirs. Oh boy. 


Brooklynn's turn. She was hit with the sickness bug that I started with. 

Thursday was also Autumn's field trip.... and my conference night. 

Man. I'm exhausted. 

So, here I sit. 

My Wild Friday night.  

Catching up on blogging, binge watching Alley McBeal, and finally enjoying my weekend drink.. a week latter. lol

Happy weekend, friends!
