Another Great Day!

I got to have another snow day yesterday! And I actually did a lot of work :) I got up around 9:00 (much better than the 5:30 I had to get up today :) ) and got the kids breakfast. I then worked until 12:00 during which I answered 350 questions by my 3 1/2 year-old and put my 20 month-old down for a nap. Then I made lunch, and did more work, and then got ready for our Valentine's night. We got to go to a Blue Jackets (NHL) game and sit in my company's suite and eat free food! It was the cheapest Valentine's Day ever! Our babysitter is our daytime babysitter’s daughter, so we went over to pick her up and were lucky enough that she wanted to stay overnight with us (otherwise we would have had to take her home and now since we’ve moved she lives 25 minutes away). The kids were still up when we got home, which was great because we got to play with them a little and then get them ready for bed.

This morning kind of sucked though because even though I got up at 5:30, I didn’t get to work until 8:00. Why you ask? Because I had to take the kids to the sitter’s, and then my sitter talked and talked and talked to me about nothing. She has this bad habit about taking so much of your time telling you stories about her kids, and so much other nonsense when all you want to do is get out of there! But she’s great for the kids so I can’t complain…too much :)

I hope to catch up on all of your blogs today…it’s amazing how fast my days flew by when I was home with the kids. It’s scary how much I enjoyed being home too…I got so much stuff done around the house and I had a blast with the kids. It kind of makes me rethink what I want…working or staying home. It’s not like that’s ever happened before :)

If your sitter spends all day with kids, she is probably desperate for some adult conversation! I try really hard to not talk people's ears off, but sometimes I need an adult to talk to after spending all day with kids!

Sounds like a fun valentine's day!

We have had rain when everyone else has had snow. I don't miss it, although I do miss the snow days!

Glad you enjoyed your snow days! I have only used 2 different babysitters for my kids and both would talk your head off. I've come to the conclusion that they need some sort of adult contact, since, they have talked to nothing but babies and toddlers.

Glad you got to enjoy the last few snow days! Some of the best times are staying @ w/ the kids home doing nothing isn't it?

I use to live in Colorado & really miss that snow some days! LOL!
Take Care!
