Weekend Reflection

Well considering this has been Spring Break and I work for the school district, I was off for the whole week! As you may already know. I must stop and actually ponder my week.

--Hubby worked on garden out front with kids. Eldest daughter (Miss A) planted seeds she bought with her own money.

--My son (Mr. C) had his 7th Birthday on Thursday. I had different plans I was thought about doing but time and money said otherwise and we ended up having it at the park with a bunch of moms and kids from was great!

--My daughter (Miss A) bought my son a Bionicle (Lego made toy) for his birthday with her own money. I just love that my kids learn to save their own money and buy their siblings gifts!

--I aspired to do a lot of cleaning...but got only some done. I will have to be happy with what I accomplished. I did get the kids rooms cleaned and vacuumed. That was no minor feat! I did not do the cleaning...I only guided. There are only two rooms.

--I started walking more and taking the kids on walks more (this includes going to the park). I intend to keep this up for two reasons. 1..because I work full time and some it is good for me and the kids and gives hubby a chance to be at home alone (although he may be cooking dinner at the time) and 2..because at the school district where I work they are having a "Biggest Loser" contest that I joined! Yeah, I can lose weight and win money...I'm not sure which is better? So the extra walking is a needed routine!

--My hubby and I have been spending more quality time together. This has been very good. At the same time it brings things to the surface which is good but can sometimes be painful. But the end result is good.

--Went kite flying for the first time with my kids. Like I said..we are going to make the park a bigger part of our routine.

--I may have finally gotten smell of cat pee (male) out of Mr. C's room! This is a very big thing and my elder female dog has leaking problems when she sleeps too! So these are serious issues, you can understand I'm sure, for those of you with pets. I would keep them out all the time if weather permited. But we let the cat stay in because he is not fixed yet. And let the small dog stay inside because he is old and the biggest dog stay inside at night because we feel safer.

All in all the week has been good. I honestly did plan and want to get more done. But I need to learn to bite things off in small bites. So I will have to pick an evening when the kids are asleep (cause that is when I can be most productive) and pray for energy and tackle one of my projects.

Sounds like a good week! I feel for you with the cat pee! I have the same problem with one of our cats. She's a little strange....we really think she has mental problems because she's scared to death of everything and has very, very sensitive ears. She's had the habit of peeing in my living room lately. Now, she uses the litter box too but at least once a day, she'd been peeing in the LR. I laid down newspaper in all of the corners and she's not done it in any of the corners yet! That was about four days ago! Maybe there's something about the newspaper she doesn't like. Who cares! The pee pee puddles have stopped!

Congrats on the walking. I need to do more of that! As it gets warmer, I hope to make that a daily routine with my girls.

I am glad you had a nice spring break. It's so nice to be able to spend more time with your husband, isn't it? I love it when we make time to take walks together--that's the best! Hope you have a great week!

It's great that you got to spend more time with the kids and the hubby. And you started walking more too. I wish there was a Biggest Loser contest here because I desperately need some incentive to get off my rear and lose about 40 lbs.

Thanks for joining in!

Sounds like you had a good week!

I sympathize with you on the pet problem. We have 3 cats and there are days I wish they all lived OUTDOORS only, instead of indoors. ((sigh)).

You know, that doesn't sound like a bad week at all!

And I hope you lose big! :-)

Take care!
