Normal for the next 9 weeks

Our normal for the next 9 weeks is here.  It means Jefferson taking care of the girls until after bedtime, which includes putting all 3 to bed and dinner for all 3 because I am working until 830.  At least my schedule has changed a little and I am now only working until 830 Monday through Wednesday.  I'll be off at 545 on Thursdays and am off on Fridays.  And its only until the end of the school year.  I have successfully put together meals for the week so Jefferson doesn't have to cook, just has to feed them.  All of the recipes we have tried are on my pinterest board here but the one that Jefferson has deemed the best thing I ever cooked was honey sesame chicken.  It was so good I called on my way home and he told me to stop and get something for dinner because he had "saved me a taste, but not enough for dinner."  That was an understatement.   That one will definitely be in the weekly rotation.  Tonight we're having spinach lasagna rolls, which i'm super excited about it.  Honestly though, it may be excitement just because it means I get to eat before 9 pm.  :)  This was all that was left of the chicken.  Then Jefferson admitted I only got what the girls didn't eat from their plates, which was about bites of chicken.  :)

Now that I don't get home until 9 or after I have to find the motivation to exercise.  I can't do it at 930 after I've eaten, so I'm working on getting motivated to get up at 630 to do it.  Its really hard to stay on weight watchers when you are starving by the time you get to eat in the evenings.  Here's to hoping I can motivate myself soon! :)

Dori is close to finishing preschool, which is ridiculously hard to believe.  She has Kindergarten camp at St. Catherine's this summer and then its on to the real world of school.  Where did the last 5 years go?  Her 5th birthday is May 16 with her birthday party the Saturday afterwards, so we're all looking forward to that.

Then comes Amelia's party the following month.  Where did that year go?  I cannot believe she's almost 11 months old!  I went to buy her shoes today, however decided to wait because her feet are going to be like Dori's.  Super narrow which is going to make buying shoes such fun!  Amelia is still only saying dada but thinks its hilarious when I tell her to say mama.  She looks at me, grins, says dada, then claps for herself.  

I feel like I need to tell you something about Ginny because I have told you about the other two, but she's still going along with the flow.  She is my constant companion, helping me out and loving on Amelia, too much sometimes.  She loves babies and is a little mama.  When we go to music class she likes to take things to the ones that can't get them themselves, helping out wherever she can.  She's also my cuddly child that likes to curl up in your lap.

That's about all I have right now.  Time is flying by between gymnastics, preschool, music class, and working.  We're having a yard sale on Saturday, which i'm hoping will be lucrative.  I want to get rid of stuff and make some money.  Then we have Daisy Days at St. Catherine's.  I'm hoping to get the garden in on Sunday and then its back to the grind of work on Monday.  Hopefully i'll have time to get to the grocery store this weekend too.

Until next time....
