Emma is starting her first day of full time day care. I know she will be fine but it is a big deal!! Hope everything goes well today. Chris or Denise let me know how thing went!!

So I went to a movie with Denise and her friend Kelly on Saturday. It started off with us going to Rent, then we decided on Derailed, but we ended up going to see Get Rich Or Die Tryin'. It was actually pretty good. 50 Cent larger than life wasnt hard to look at for an hour and a half. Wow does that boy have a body!!! I cant remember the last time I went to a movie. I forgot how much fun it is. I took the kids to WalMart for their pictures on Saturday, and I went there with the intention of getting $19.95 package with the 2 of them and wanted to get a sheet of just Jarret since he missed school pictures this year. But I walked away with the package, and 2 individual sheets of Amy and 2 of Jarret!! Ya.. I am such a sucker, but they are so cute. I couldnt pass them up. I cant wait to get them.

Gotta go my stomach is yelling at me for food!!!

Well its 12:45am and I am just making tea!! I am on work time. I am usually drinking tea at work at about this time. I would like to go to sleep but I am wide awake!! Kinda sucks cause I would like to get more than 5 hours of sleep on my days off. I will learn my lesson one day. It was my sister in laws birthday today November 25th and I want to say..
Happy Birthday Neece!! I am going out with her and her friends Saturday to celebrate!! This birthday is a milestone for her (Neece I wont actually put your age on here).

Well my tea is ready so I will get going. Hopefully off to bed soon. Night.

Jarret received his report card and it was very good. I was a bit nervous because he is in French immersion.. But I don't think I have anything to worry about. We also had Parent Teacher today too and that was good. I only had 2 minor concerns.
1. Jarret has come home in the past worried that he doesn't always finish his work in class
2. How much he understands the French part of school

Both of these concerns were talked about and I feel better. I thought that Jarret didn't finish his work in class because he talkes and socializes too much in class. I thought this because this is why I always had problems in school. But the reason is because he takes his time and is very neat and organized when doing an assignment. So that made me happy. The teachers said they would definitely work on that. And the French part they said that Jarret participates in the games they play and songs they sing in French so there is really nothing to worry about. They took notes on our questions which made me feel better that they will work on this stuff and keep an eye out for it too. Both teachers said very nice things about him. So it was a good visit.

I had such a busy day today. We have been out since 9:30am and we just got home at 4:00pm. And Jarret has to go to a bday party from 5-7 tonight and I still have to get *George from work. I am so tired. Well that's it for now. Its time to get kids in the car again.

I have been in bed all day with a stupid Migrain. I get them at least once a week. Amy is such a good girl. Once I got Jarret off to school I took some pills that has codeine in them and they knocked me out. Amy watched movies in my room. She kept covering me up and kissing me g'night. I owe her big time. I put her down for a nap I think it was about 1:00pm. I heard her playing in her room but I quickly fell asleep and I woke up at 4:30!! Jarret actually woke me up when he got home from school. Amy is sleeping though.

Jarret got his report card today, and I am very pleased with it. I was a bit nervous because he is in French immersion. But according to his report card he is adjusting well. We have parent teacher interviews on Friday morning at 10:00am. Cant wait for that. That's it for now.. I better go check on Amy she is coughing a lot right now, and I need to get ready for stupid work. Lata!!

Its my Gramma's 80th birthday today. Just want to say Happy Birthday Gramma!! I was just talking to her and she is a very happy lady today. She received 2 bouquets of flowers.. And all kids of cards today. She had visitors this morning. She is so cute.

So I am trying really hard not to eat any "bad" stuff today. I am eating a toasted peanut butter and banana sandwich. I know its not the healthiest but its not a chocolate cookie!! Right?? Baby steps. So I am off to get Amy ready for her nap so I can clean and get ready for work. Jarret is going with his friend to Bring A Buddy for Beavers tonight. If he likes it I think we will sign him up for it. Ok.. Talk to ya'll later!!!

I was getting dressed for the day today and I noticed something I have never had before!! Back fat!! What the hell is that all about??? I knew I gained weight in the last few months.. But BACK FAT??? OMG... I never had that before. I think its time to do something about my weight. I have such bad self control.. I can not say no to junk food. I need help! Seriously. How does one cut out the food they love? I don't think I could actually cut it out completely but I need to do something. *George and I talked about joining the YMCA in January and I really think I need to. We have to wait until Christmas just for $$ sake.. But that is a New Year Resolution I need to make. I have never made New Year Resolutions before but this time its different. I was thinking about getting Slim Fast. I know a girl that went on that and she lost a lot of weight. I think it would be good for me cause I really don't eat meals throughout the day and I could make super before work. I don't start until 7pm so it would be good. The only problem is work. I work in a call center and it can get pretty boring some nights, and all there is to eat that late is vending machine stuff. Well now that I am done ranting on about this I should get going to start thinking about super!! LOL. If there are any tips out there on how to have some control over this please let me know!!
See ya!!

Last night was my grammas big bday party and it was a lot of fun!! I love getting together with the whole family. My gramma has 8 great grandchildren and they were all there. They were all so cute and well behaved. My gramma really hates getting her picture taken. Every picture there is of her is her turning to the side. Never a dead on picture of her face. Her cake last night was really nice. There was a black and white picture of her when she was younger and beside that was a more recent one of her (of course its the side of her face). My mom got that done for her and was a little nervous that she would hate it. My mom said either she would kill her or love it!! When my gramma saw it she had a big smile on her face. There were so many pictures taken with her. We got a picture of her and all 8 great grandchildren. I cant wait to see it. Also pictures of my family with her. When I get them from my Uncle I will post them. My gramma actually was loving all the pictures and she was smiling in them!! My mom spoke to her today and she said she was up at 3am reliving her party. She went through all the bday cards first thing this morning.. I am so glad she had a good time!! She looked so cute last night. All her family were there (unfortunately my younger cousins couldn't make it.. Kyle is in Edmonton for school and Jarod had to work.. Missed you guys!!) I'm glad she has this memory!! I will post some pictures once I get them all uploaded from the camera.

This weekend has gone by so fast I am back to work tonight. Sundays are so easy so I really don't mind. Well... I guess that's it for now.

Well looks like my ranting on and on about Amy being SO sick has paid off. She seems to be feeling better today. Why is it when you are sick and you finally get yourself to a doctor you are better all of a sudden?? That happends to me all the time and with the kids too. She still has a nasty cough but other than that she seems to be feeling better. I will have to call and cancel her appointment for today, no need to haul her out in the cold weather. I am so glad to have her back. But by the middle of the day her constant talking will most likely drive me up the wall!!! I have never known a kid who talks as much as she does. My mom says that I was a talker too but not nearly as much as Amy!! I cant explain how much she talks. Its a constant noise ALL DAY!! That makes her her though. I wouldn't want it any other way!!!

So I am going shopping with my mom today to find Jarret something to wear for my Grandma's 80th bday party this weekend. Could you imagine.. 80 years old??? That is crazy. I am having a hard time being 27 nevermind 80!! We are having a pretty big party for her at a hotel. There are about 40 people coming. My moms Uncle is in from Alberta for it. Its a really big deal. When I told my Grandma that I was going shopping for Jarret's outfit for her party she didn't understand why he needs something new.. and why my Uncle is in from out of town for her "silly bday". She is going to have a great time, but I think she is just a bit uncomfortable with all these people coming. Once she is there she will love it. She is so cute. I cant wait for Saturday. We have such a busy day on Saturday.. I am getting my hair cut at 9:30 then Jarret has a bday party at 2 and I have a baby shower at 2 for *Georges cousin. And my Grandmas party starts at 5!! We can go for weeks at a time with no plans then everything happends at once.

Well that's it for now.
I just got home from work and put on David Letterman on and Ellen Degeneres is on his show. They are so cute together. He has so much admiration for her and vice versa. My sister and I HAVE to watch when she is on his show. I don't know what it is they just have great chemistry. Just had to say it.. it was good TV for 20min... Now its 2:31am and I am finally off to bed. Sweet dreams!!

So I am starting to get really worried about Amy. She is still not herself. She does not have a fever anymore but she has been sleeping the days away. She went down for a nap on Saturday at about 2pm and slept until the next day. Then on Sunday I put her down for a nap at about 1pm and she slept until Monday morning (which I had to wake her up at 9am). I put her down on Monday at 1:30pm and she slept until 5 and I had to wake her. She did not nap yesterday but she layed down all day and slept until 10:15am this morning. Her nap today was at 1:30pm and again I had to wake her up at 5:15pm. So needless to say we are heading to the doctor tomorrow for 2:20pm. I am getting a little worried. She is not eating and is crying over everything. Her cough sounds so bad too. Any ideas as to what may be wrong? Any doctors out there? I will let you know how things go at the doctors tomorrow. Now that I am done going on and on.. I need to get ready for work. Its slow driving!! Have a great night.

So here is a great picture of the first snowfall. Thanks Char!! Why does it look so nice the first time you see it for the year then it gets really old really quick? Well Jarret had a great day outside, he was out for most of the morning. Poor Amy she was really upset with me cause I would let her outside. But I quickly changed her mind by giving her a fruit snack! I didn't make it to work tonight, you cant even see our car it is covered with snow. The parking lot has not been plowed either, so lets hope its ago for tomorrow.. we need to get to the store for milk, bread and butter. Ok.. That's it.. G'night!!
Well we have a snow day already!! No school busses so Jarret is home today. He and his friend are on their way outside to make a snow fort.. he is pretty excited!! I cant find his other mit so he is wearing my pink knitted mits!! (He says they're red). *George is home today as well.. We have a family snow day! Amy is still feeling icky but she wants to go outside.. I have to say no and she really isn't happy with me at all. That's it for now... Happy shoveling!!

I was talking with my husband (whose name will not be mentioned per his request) and he said I should explain the name Upusdown. Since only my mom got it. Upusdown is how Amy says upsidedown. I was racking my brain on a name for this and was coming up with nothing. I was thinking too hard and this morning I was watching the kids eat breakfast and then it came to me. So that's the explanation of Upusdown. I think its cute.

I am going to try this blog thing. I am really bad for not following threw with things so I will do my best. Bare with me cause I am not really too sure how to get this going this will definetly be a working progress.

Both of the kids were sick this weekend it started off with Jarret then went to Amy. Jarret has bounced back pretty fast but Amy is still fighting it off. I guess thats it for now..
