wow where has the month gone?

So, I missed a day and screwed up my NaBloPoMo and as a 'punishment' I have ignored my dear blog since I messed up.  Shame on me.  I enjoy doing this, posting my thoughts for no one in particular to follow, so who really did I punish...well frankly, no one lol but regardless, I am back.  I am going to make December my month to blog every day.  So you three (of which I believe I am actually one) watch out your reader will over floweth!!!

I will be back tomorrow to up date what we are actually up too, until them PEACE OUT!

Dang it dang it dang it

The road to hell is paved with good intentions! My month is blown and I was doing so great. I had every intention of blogging every day in November for NaBloPoMo but alas I blew it. In fact I THOUGHT I blew it last night, Monday Nov 8th, but when I just came now to write this post I discovered my last post was in fact Nov 6 th. So dang it there goes that dream!! Well I do have an excuse, really I do. We got the rooms finished and Baby Waffle is in his new bed in his new room and therefore we have had NO sleep the last two days. I am in fact sitting up at 2:43am because the dear baby is up. On top of turning his world upside down I am nowalso trying to cut out his little midnight snacks so there is another reason we are up. Doesn't give me any chance of winning any prizes but well I guess in the end the only prize I really need is a boy who likes to sleep in his nice new big boy bed!!!!!
Well going to try to get the man back in bed. Good night to all.

Moving (around) day...

So we spent all day today making changes to the set up of the house.  The playroom is all done.
The kids room is all done and Little Waffle will be spending her first night in the top bunk she has decided will be hers! (eek, no rails, we may need to fix that!) 

and baby Waffle is in his very own 'big boy bed' for the first time tonight, I am crossing everything I have that he makes it all night there!  (but big sissy is ready to sleep with him if she has too, lol) 

now all that is left is to move our bedroom furniture back to the master bedroom and out of the den we currently have it in so I can set up the classroom in said den.  It is just so exciting! (and somehow I am ready to be done with the shifting. )  

Well, I have some reading to do for my classes and I have started crocheting again so I have things to do, I must run.  TTFN!

Girls night out

Amazing how much different that is now than it once was. lol  Tonight I had girls night out with Little Waffle, we got some free tickets to the Veggie Tales show at one of the churches in town so off we went.  A quick dinner at the most healthy of spots Micky D's (we were running late) then to the show. 

I have never really had reason to pay much attention to the Veggie Tales but I have to say it was nice.  Nice that they have fun while teaching to share (or whatever the lesson may be at a given time!) 

Anyway thanks to Aunt Val for the free tickets!  I will leave you with a few pictures.

Remind me never to get a job in the Private Practice office~

I was having a really bad day.  Something happened that I don't want to talk about because I am not sure who reads this and not really how I would want to have people know, just know it was nothing earth shattering but I have to say coming home tonight and watching Private Practice put me in my place.  lol  Those people have it ALL happen!
It is so nice to have a release like tv.  I know, I know, it rots your brain and is horrible for developing minds but come on it is sooooo nice sometimes to watch things so horrible you can't wrap your head around it and know it isn't real!!!

So what else is going on...hmmm well for starters my poor Mac Book has been through the wringer.  Baby Waffle is murder on my poor computer and the result is I have no back slash, no question mark and my monitor is about to snap off at any minute!  Not really anything important about that information so much as I needed a question mark and had none to put in! So what was I saying, Oh yes, other things.  Now that the Navy Waffles are both out living their adult lives we have begun our home remodeling.  We have the playroom almost all set up and just have to get some last toys out of Little Waffle's room.  Once that is done we will move on to putting Baby Waffle's new toddler bed in the room with Little Waffle.  When we finally have them set up we can move back into the master suite and I will FINALLY be able to set up my classroom!  Now I need lots and lots of bookshelves.  So I guess I will head on over to craigslist and see what I can find!
So TTFN, baby Waffle is up!

Day two

No, I don't plan to list every day of school but hey, it is our first week.  Turns out starting next week we will be much better at this as my little job baby sitting will be ending as of Friday so my time will be back to being my own.... in the mean time, today we mostly accomplished HWT.  Little Waffle LOVES that curriculum!  She is seriously avoiding her phonics though so we need to work on that.  

The play room is painted which is another bonus.  We will spend the rest of the week working on moving rooms around so by Monday we will have our official classroom.  I am so excited, now just need to stock up on book cases!

The moving around of rooms also means the beginning of the end of co-sleeping for baby waffle.  We got him the cutest little toddler bed and we will be moving him into the room with Little Waffle.  We will have to see how that one turns out!  They love each other bunches so one would think it would work out ok.....

Well that is it for now, Baby Waffle is crying time to get him changed and into bed.....uh oh poo time!

First day of school

Yes we were a little late officially starting out year but we were waiting to get some redecorating done after the older Waffles left for the Navy.  We have been doing some work just never officially started our year until now. The redo of the house is running behind so we still aren't in our classroom as I had hoped but we did get started. 

Today we began HWT and worked on the upper case frog jump letters and Little Waffle actually told me she was having so much fun she didn't want to stop!  (love hearing that for the time it lasted)  We were not able to get to our phonics for today but we will get to that tomorrow. It is going to take some time to adjust to trying to get lessons in around Baby Waffle.  Before bed we read the first chapter in SOTW.

This week we hope to do HWT and phonics daily along with some math, which today we did in the form of making thin pancakes (crepes) for breakfast!  We hope to get SOTW three times a week but I also need to get the activity sheets before we get to far ahead.  We will make a trip to the library Wednesday both so the Waffles can get new books but also because I have a book on hold Naked Heat and I really miss reading for fun.

On top of trying to get started on Little Waffles official school year I have been asked to assist on a research team at my school.  I will be able to get my thesis out of this so I might just be able to graduate in May after all and I have to say at this point that will be a huge blessing as well as a weight off of my shoulders! 

I guess that is all for now, today is the official first day of NaBloPoMo, so I hope to post daily!
