Today.............managed to get everyone up fairly early. Ingrid insists on getting up earlier all the time and the teens would sleep till noon if I let them. The phone rang this morning sometime after seven and......I ignored it till I realized it wasn't Charley but my good friend Cindy. Her car was dead and hubby left for work without his cell...........so...........I got a taste of 7:00 traffic. Boy, my heart goes out to everyone there as I would rather not go through that every day. It wasn't too bad but there is a lot more traffic then the rest of the day. Glad they got to school/work on time.
When I got home, my back was hurting worse than ever. It dawned on me thanks to some facebook friends that I need to find my cute little maternity belt already. Never thought I would need that as I am resisting even getting out the maternity clothes at all yet. Those days are numbered. My tummy attempts to peak out of my shirt as it is now so I suppose to spare the general public I will have to search out the clothes that I almost sent to the Seminary Clothing Bank. Hmmm.......
The rest of the day was consumed by Matthew's Ortho appointment and shopping for Cecilia's bday. She asked for this IQ Sphere ball which I didn't know the name of it till someone from Loopers helped me out. It does not look exactly the same as the piano teachers but I am sure she will like it just the same. Phew. That problem solved. I also found her the most awesome Trilby. I think that is what it is called. Anna would love one of her own but it only came in little girls sizes. She will be pretty styling and I can't wait to give it to her. Her bday is next Thursday. The only other thing she asked for was a folder for her Writing Road to Reading class. Time for a new one. Hopefully that won't be too hard to find.
After running around decluttering, I am hoping to play another round of Yahtzee with the kids this evening. They had a lot of fun the last time. TTFN!
