Four Ten hour days hasn't been working lately

My normal work schedule is Mon - Thurs 10 hour days and I have Fridays off. It never worked perfectly but the last 2 weeks I've had to work a lot on my Friday OFF. I'm starting to think it doesn't work anymore. I'm going to try to tough it out for the summer though. I want to spend at least one summer with a shortened work-week. For this girl...

These pants make her legs look skinny!

I ran a 5K today

I ran my first 5K. I wish I had pictures but it was 35 degrees and raining/snowing so...  carrying my camera was out of the question. and no one came to cheer us on because of the weather. I've never been so wet & cold but it was great. I'm going to find another and sign up! WooHoo

First Birthday Party Success

It's a lot of work to have a kids birthday party. Lots of cooking, cleaning, repairing the house after winter damage and fighting yesterday in preparation for the party today. But it was worth it and the party was good. Short but good. Cassidy got tired and took a nap right after cake and by the time she woke up everyone was gone but Grammi & Grampi.  It was a nice day.

Bad cold

Cassidy just hasn't been herself since Monday. Last night she coughed a lot and Bill said she obviously wasn't feeling well this morning. Daycare said similar things. She picked at dinner and then cried. We tried to give her a bath to hopefully clear out her nose a little but she cried and wanted to be held so we gave up quickly. Bill got her in her PJ's and gave her a warm bottle and she's in bed almost an hour earlier than normal. I hope she sleeps well tonight and feels better in the morning.

Cassidy had her first full blown tantrum. She was rummaging around the kitchen cabinets (as usual) and something fell. She slams the door, turns around and throws herself face down on the floor crying and kicking her legs.  I stood over her, a little bit in shock I'll admit. Bill walks over at this exact moment and says "Did she fall or is she..." I burst out laughing and let him know that yes our sweet little girl was having a tantrum.  It was nap time!  Otherwise our weekend was pretty nice.

A birthday party - not my girl's though

My niece Jade's birthday is the same week as Cassidy's. She is one year older so yesterday we made the trek down to Connecticut for her 2nd birthday party. It was a nice day and a small party. The Elmo cake was adorable and a big hit!
And thank goodness my husband is a stain removing dynamo because he got that red frosting out of my new t-shirt and Cassidy's new pants :)

Cassidy is walking. I don't mean the random step or two she's been doing for at least a month, I mean WALKING! Across rooms!
and to be honest, I missed it because I was grumpy today and left in a huff to go water my moms plants.  I guess that's what I get for being grumpy :(
still though, she's walking!  and two whole days before her first birthday!
