School is in full swing now and we've been staying busy. Valerie is enjoying first grade and has made all A's on all of her tests so far. I Love, Love her teacher!! Val has a lot of homework but usually finishes it in no time. She enjoys learning and seems to catch on fast. I love how happy Valerie is to see me waiting on the porch every day when she gets off the bus.
Veronica has decided I pick her up from school "too early" and wants to stay longer. She is also asking about being the first one there. Coming from her, that is amazing. She comes home happy and talking non stop about her daily activities. She's also learning to write her name.
Clint has been going back and forth to Houston for work every few days. He gets to fly there for a day or two sometimes. Beats driving I guess and at least he is home in between.
We joined a real gym on the first day of school. I've been going just about every morning five days a week spending on average two hours a day there. Finally, I am doing something for me! We joined at the right time because they started a new round of classes with a brand new instructor. Zumba, pilates, kick boxing, and body sculpting. It's hard work but I'm doing them all, plus stuff on my own when time allows. I love the classes but I like the weight machines too. I'm trying not to focus on losing weight, just getting in better shape. In spite of all I am doing, the scale has not moved at all. Maybe I have lost inches though.... I'm not sure how long I can keep up with spending two hours a day there, but for now I'll take it.
A few girl friends and I have started a 'lunch club' while our kids are in school. We meet for lunch just about once a week and sometimes catch a movie before. It's so nice to have real adult time!! Three hour lunches with lots of laughs are awesome in every way.
My Dad has come to stay with us for a while. He is not doing well. He went to the doctor, so you know he has to be feeling pretty bad. Not really sure what is wrong or what to do for him.... Mostly he just feels extreme exhaustion and is having a hard time doing anything for himself. I do feel better now that he is here with us, but it's hard not to worry....

This would be so awesome to have in my kitchen! A Cuisinart Smart Stick Hand Blender!! As much as I enjoy cooking and baking, this is one of the appliances I do not have. I had a cheap one when my kids were babies to mix formula, but it did not last long. I would be so thrilled if I had the chance to try one of these. Cuisinart anything is awesome!
