FOR TODAY...January 18, 2011
Outside my window...rain. It's a cold and miserable day. But I'm in NYC. So it's all good!
I am thinking...some fun stuff to do with the kids tomorrow while Tiff has to work. Maybe we'll see what's within walking distance, or do a fun scavenger hunt in the hotel. We shall see...
I am thankful for...friends who inspire me to be a better person, challenge me to step outside of my comfort zone, and encourage me to reach for my dreams!
I am wearing...comfy pants, t-shirt, robe...I actually haven't changed all day. So much nicer than my work "uniform"!
I am remembering...to update my photo-a-day blog...I'm a few days behind so I need to catch up!
I am creating...a plan for our "hotel-schooling" for tomorrow. Nate and Brie are getting a "lesson" each day while they're missing school - it's "M" week and Mrs. Downey sent home a packet of activities for us to work on while we're gone. So, tomorrow we'll do our reading, practice our letters, and pick an activity to work on .
I am going...to bed early tonight. I'm hoping getting more than 6 hours of sleep will help with my patience level tomorrow.
I am hoping...Nate gets a good night's sleep so he is less argumentative and more cooperative tomorrow. Today was a challenging day.
I am hearing...Brielle's bath running, PBS in the background, and Nate going on a fire call.
Around the house...we're in a hotel suite so its not really our house, but we have stuff strewn all about...the kids (Nate & Brie) had "school" earlier and Alex's train tracks are still set up in the hallway.
On my mind...nothing to speak of, really. Which is nice. I don't have work to worry about (for a few more days, anyway). I miss my hubby but he's been busy at home working on projects so I can't wait to see his work!!
One of my favorite things...Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. Because of them, I may never be skinny.
A few plans for the rest of the week: Swimming at the hotel, hanging with Tiff & enjoying our last 4 days in NYC, driving home to see Daddy, whatever else comes our way!
Here is picture for thought I am sharing...
The "crew" awaiting our train into the City. It was cold yesterday but we had a big day (Tiff's birthday) to celebrate so it was the perfect day to get out and do it up big! With no stroller it was a challenge so thank God Jessica was with us to help carry my load (Alex) or I would have pooped out early!
