So Monday started off with lots of promise, but the gym didn't happen again until Friday, long story, but I have tried to eat better. I'm curious to see how that weight loss goal is working out. I resolved to only weigh myself at the gym once at the beginning of the week. So I'm hoping to go tomorrow because I'm run down with a cold today.
I've had doctor's appointments, sick kids, cranky kids, gotten sick myself but generally other than that it hasn't been too bad of a week. Thursday we went to the junior high where Taylor received an award for getting 5 A's. He actually didn't want to go and complained the whole time because he said he would've gotten 6 A's, another long story. But we forced him anyways and even went out to dessert afterwards to celebrate, which he didn't want to do either. We got to experience the earthquake while we were sitting in Chilli's eating ice-cream.
Saturday we took the kids skating like we promised them. (I think that's when I overdid it and pushed myself into a cold). All my pictures ended up blurry but I did get a video. The kids all got skates for Christmas so I brought them to a skating rink for the first time over Christmas break. Taylor and Jacob did really well right off the bat and Ashley tried the hardest I've ever seen laughing every time she fell and getting right back up again. Jeff was sad that he missed all the fun so we had to go again. This trip Ashley did much better. So proud of her.
So today is another new start. We got a white board for Christmas and the plan was to have daily chores and things to do for the kids. So far this is what it has been used for....
Today I got it all set up for real so the kids will get to come home and know exactly what to do with all their free time :) We'll see how that goes.
