Nothing Really Important
-I swallowed a bug on my run today. I was horrified and considered making myself throw up since I could feel it lodged in my throat. Perhaps I should begin running with pantyhose over my face.
-My daughter cut her own hair this morning so I then took her for her first hair cut. It makes me sad how much older she looks now. Why do they grow so fast?
-I am starting to look for a part time nanny job to make some extra cash since we are so tight.
-Mike might put in a transfer through his union for us to move back to the Tri-Cities since there is no work here for him. He'll decide by the end of this week if he's going to apply for the transfer. If his transfer is approved we'll probably move back after the first of the year.
-I have been staying up late every night researching various methods and curriculums trying to decide how I want to approach these first years of homeschooling with Camden. I have decided to slow down and keep doing what we are doing (which is following her interests). She is such an amazing and inquisitive little girl. She is starting to sound out and read words. She is writing well and is beginning to understand some basic math concepts. We even started reading "The Story of the World" together which I really recommend. It is a great narrative book that you read to your kids that goes through history chronologically. She's doing so much more than I ever did at 4.
-I have been totally not doing good the last couple of days on eating well. I think I've had ice-cream the last 5 days in a row. Yikes. I fell of the bandwagon. But the last few days have been so stressful with Garrett being sick and I use food as an "I deserve this" type thing and I really need to knock that off.
-One of my best friend's wife lost a baby a few days ago. She was in her 8th month of pregnancy. I don't know any of the details yet but it is heart wrenching.
I know this is supposed to be about us and not our kids but I don't have picture of any of these other events (a picture of me swallowing a bug would be pretty cool) so I'll include pictures of Camden's haircut. :)
