What day is it?

Last night Ethan had baseball tryouts. He'll be in the majors this year (of his little league). He thinks he did well at tryouts. I can't tell you how he really did because I don't know! You can't see much at the training center where tryouts are held! Hopefully we'll hear what team he's on in the next 10 days or so.

Tonight, PJ and Sam will probably be heading up to the high school to go over AP class options. There's some sort of informative meeting. I need to get to the grocery store too, in preparation for Megan's family birthday dinner (PJ will celebrate with the family too, but he picks his meal on Sat, 3/8, when he's having some friends over).

PJ will go to CNU on Thursday to see Joe's band perform. His mom and sister are going to. They'll have a good time, but it'll be a long day.

Megan's birthday is just two days away! She's pretty excited to have a "real" birthday this year! (ah, the curse of the leap year birthday).

I've updated links on this blog. Heidi (my sister) for instance, finally has a blog of her own. Feisty! If you want to check it out, she's here.

I also updated my Bloglines (my feed reader) to make sure it included everyone's blogs. Phew!

Now, I just need to get my sister-in-law on board and I can keep up better with my brother's family's activities! :P

Total Lunar Eclipse coming!

On Wed, Feb 20, there's a total lunar eclipse.

10:26pm eastern time.

Here are all the details.

Doll Baby

PJ and the girls worked on Megan's doll house yesterday. Here are some pictures.

Ethan got sick at school so now I'm working from home and he's resting in his room. Fun times...

Eventually We'll Catch Up

As you can guess by now, PJ and I are not known for being totally up to date on movies. There is just not enough time in the day/week/month/year to watch very many movies and do all the other things we always seem to have going on. Well, we finally watched all of The Bourne Identity (warning: spoilers, if you haven't seen it yet). It's about time, huh? Gotta love FiOs On Demand.

It was a good movie. And I totally want to see the next too. ASAP. But who knows when we'll have the time. LOL

In other news, it's President's Day and PJ is off with the girls. Not sure what they're doing. I had to work. Fun.

Happy Valentine's Day!

(image from here)
I know I'm a few hours early, but I wanted to make sure my Valentine's wishes arrived on time! :) Hope it's a great day!

Chesapeake Primaries

So, did you get out and vote? I did. I'm doing my part.

I uploaded some pictures from the kids making dollhouse furniture, making gingerbread houses and even PJ's humongous hamburger. You can see the pictures here.

In other news, the weather is icey (or is it icy?) tonight. So Ethan is pretty sure he's going to have a delay tomorrow. I don't really care, except I have to go to work. I've had a lot to do lately.

Have a wonderful day! Valentine's Day is almost upon us. PJ and I have the really romantic plans of nothing to do! You have no idea how exciting that really is. :P

Spring Cleaning!

So, it's not spring yet, but it was very spring-like weather yesterday. I had a bee in my bonnet for whatever reason and decided to clean out my closet. I ended up with a full bag of clothing to donate and about 500 miscellaneous hangers. :-O I also organized my clothes according to work, leisure, formal and pants, skirts, etc. It'd been a while since I had done that. It feels good. Next, I'll be tackling my shoe rack. The Lupus Foundation will be here on March 13 (this was the earliest!) to pick up our donations, so I'm harassing the kids to go through there stuff too.

In other news, the kids got their report cards yesterday. Ethan and Megan did great! Sam...not so much. She definitely had good grades in a few classes, but she's not doing well in Algebra at all. Um...hello girlfriend, get your act together. Anyway, her mom took away her permit, so no driving for her until she's back on honor roll. PJ pulled her out of Color Guard. After this weekend's show (a big one that her school is hosting and all of us are volunteering at), she won't go to any more competitions or practices. She's bummed, of course, but I think she's forgotten what's important here. *sigh*

Tonight, we're a busy sort...meeting up with a friend to pick up Ethan's keys that were left at her house; we're attending a meeting in preparation for the volunteer work on Saturday and at some point, I need to run some errands.

I have a lot of things on my mind lately, but nothing I can readily discuss here or really anywhere else. It's frustrating.

But onto more exciting news...our Wills paperwork is completed. We have just a few little things to complete to get our financial goals in line and then we're done with the "grown up" activities for a while. Sometimes being a grown up is no fun. :P
