Holy Monsoon!!!

Ok my day didn't start too great. I heard on the news that we were going to get hit pretty hard with a horrible storm within the next 20 minutes. So I ran down the stairs to let Teak out to go potty. By the way Teak is our Chocolate Labador that will be 9 years old in March. Ok so I go outside and bam I am hit with all this wind and tons of rain (it was sideways) and it is thunder and lightening. I am completely freaked out and drag the poor dog back in and he isn't finished going so he is not happy. Well Kate and Noah are up and a little freaked so I grab Maggie out of her crib and run downstairs. It passes before the weatherman even said it would be in our area. I love how the weatherman can mess up something that is literally happening at that moment. I have heard a couple of my friends neighborhoods were hit pretty bad. I am glad my friends are all safe.

The rest of the day was crazy. Ballet day...It is absolutely the worst day of the week for me. I think I age about 5 years every Tuesday we are at ballet. The little kids don't fair to well during that long long long hour. Mags almost never gets a nap on this day. It is miserable.

I am so looking forward to watching One Tree Hill and BB9 and veggie out in front of the TV for a little while tonight. I miss Noah, but am glad he is having a great trip. Oh he isn't in Carlisle he is in a really small town I can't remember the name of the town, but he is close to Carlisle.

Well we over slept. I have to say I am enjoying the bed all to myself. Extremely easy to make in the mornings. Well we were in a bit of a rush to get all three fed and mostly dressed and out the door by 7:15 well it was more like 7:30. I hate rushing in the mornings. It is so hard to motivate kids when you are yelling hurry. Dropped Kate off at school with about 4 minutes to spare.

Noah, Mags and I were off to Wal-Mart for invitations for Noah. Spider-Man invites. They will go in the mail tomorrow. I have really slacked on this kids bday. I normally have a big notebook of who is coming, what we are eating, the favors and the list goes on and on. I am hopeful that all will work out.

Talked to Big Noah and he is enjoying himself in England. He is in a small town called Carlisle. He is staying in a house their like a bed and breakfast and they had a nice dinner for a few people that are in town and Noah was invited to come. Very good for networking and learning more about the company.

Noah left for England yesterday

Noah left yesterday to go to the UK for the week. He is going to finally get the training he needs for his job. It is kinda weird for him to be gone at night. The time difference really makes it hard to talk to him. I look forward to spending a lot of quality time with the kids and get back on a really good routine. I do miss him though.

Maggie has a cold/fever and we weren't able to have our pictures made yesterday. I was pretty bummed about that. The weather was bad anyways and we were going to have them taken outside. So I guess if she had to be sick that was a good time. We will reschedule after Noah gets back.

Kate has discovered music. She was given an MP3 player for her Birthday in December, but just had me get it up and running (which was a challenge) yesterday. She is so funny now she dances and sings S.O.S. by Rhianna all through the house. Do I tell her she can't carry a tune in a bucket... I will let her think she is a good singer for a bit longer. She is begging me to get her some Hannah Montana music. HM is all new to me. I am so out of the loop on cool things for kids. I will do my research and have some new tunes for her this week.

Lil Noah is having a bday soon. We are going to have a Spider-Man party at the Gymnastics place near our home. He is really excited for his special day.
