V-Day Review

Yes, I'm a little late with this.  But with my blogging track record this should come as no surprise. :)

Since my sweet Emma Lou is always down for a project, we tend to make little goodie bags for any of the preschool holiday parties.  This year we bought little plastic shovels, some candy, and attached cards that said "i dig you".  Both of the kiddos love to see their faces on stuff so I couldn't resist adding a picture.  And why wouldn't they love seeing themselves?  They're gorgeous, right?!

The teacher gifts were the platic tumblers that are all the rage now.


I seriously should have skipped See's party. He was so worried that I was going to leave that he didn't really have any fun. And of course, he freaked out when I left to go back to work. Sigh. So is it a Mom fail when I do go to the party and upset him when I leave, or when I don't go to the party? Ugh.

Emma did much better. Don't you love this forced smile?

Jeremy and I were very low key.  We picked up some take out and played with the kids.  It's amazing how absolutely normal romantic holidays become when you have kids.  It's a lot of work to be romantic!  Maybe when the kids get older we'll finally get back on track and put a little effort into Valentine's Day.  Despite that, not a bad day if I do say so myself!

We finally have a snow day and I'm at work.  Cause we're kind of like the postman- the stinkin trains are always running.

The accutane has cleared up my face.  But now my skin is so dry that I look like a leper and I've gained 19 pounds. That's right- 19.

I'd forgotten how much time you have to spend on homework.  Instead of taking a nice little nap on Sunday afternoons, or perhaps working on one of my many projects on my crafty to-do list, or watching the Twilight movie that came out on DVD, I'm writing a case analysis.

Last month I was in Florida and it was 80 degrees.  On Wednesday I'm leaving for another work trip, Kansas City this time.  Expected temps are in the 40s.  My body can't take the shock.

Hopefully the week will improve; I would love to add some acceptables to my list!  Ugh, Mondays!
