First Day of School Blues
Well, today my little babies went back to school. I really hate when my kids go back to school. I genuinely miss them and having them with me. They were not in the best of spirits - I think the feeling was mutual ;-(
I was so focused on getting a parking spot and getting them to line up, I left my camera in the car and was unable to take a picture - but thank goodness for my friend Marmeline who captured the two girls on the class line with each of her daughters.
Both Mommy and daughters made it through the first day just fine. Each girl got the teacher they wanted and were very happy!
With a busy and stressful morning behind me, I now have a bunch of errands to do with the girls. First, I have to do food shopping since I never really filled up the fridge since returning from Italy.
This afternoon, Gianna has an appointment with the orthodontist (which I'm sure she can't wait ...NOT). Then I have to take Kelsey for a new pair of school shoes - this kid is growing like a weed!!!
If that's not enough, I then have to spend my evening covering school books with contact paper - my most dreaded job on the first week of school!!
This is gonna be a short one folks!! Be here tomorrow. Looking forward to getting back in the swing of travel talk!!!
Getting back into the swing of things
We are back from Vegas, after having a lovely, mellow weekend.
Lot of catching up to do today, from the entire summer of practically being away!
Similar to Elisa, it is quite necessary that I go and fill up the fridge!
During the period of the summer that the kids stayed home with Mumsy, Dominic did most of the cooking, and got some rave reviews!
Knowing that in the past he has seriously mentioned the idea of one day becoming a professional Chef, I asked him if he would like to take one night a week (as a start) to cook for the family (and that I'd get the night off...)
He seems very excited about this idea and is looking quite forward to his new exciting and rewarding kitchen challenge!
I also promised that I was gonna help my girlfriend Priscilla with finding airfare, so that she can join me and the kids in Iceland!
(See what's left for me to do for our trip to Iceland on our List of Lists page)
I have lots of organizing of photos to deal with, new ones for posting, etc..
Plus it seems like our main slide show here on TC has vanished (we are NOT at all happy about this). Not sure what happened, but we have a lot of uploading to do - which is very time consuming... Luckily I love reviewing past trips and looking at these photos! Also, being that it seems we have lost this slide show, we are going to do things a bit differently.
We have already made separate slide shows for Foodie Fridays, and our recent trips UK/Scandinavia & Italy, and now we are also going to do a special Throwback Thursday slide show with a bunch of retro pics that we hope you get a kick out off! LOL
Lastly, and certainly not least. I hope that it isn't too hot out here today. I really need to get back into a good exercise routine.
Summer was definitely a bust for my workouts! I had a really great one, so no regrets there. Onward!
I'll be back here to catch up with you tomorrow for Hump Day!
