Very relaxing day today and finally back into it .... baking that is.  James and Spence both did laundry, I put mine away.  We went to Market Mall and grabbed a few things, then headed home for the boys to play some video games and for me to start on supper.

We are doing appies and an early movie before I head out for appies at Kirsten's place - our monthly girls night out.

We had stopped at M&M and got some meatballs, chicken wings, cheese sticks and a few other goodies.  I made some bruschetta, some sundried tomato sauce for flatbread pizza, roasted some pumpkin seeds, made a carrot coconut curry soup and some mini croissants (some with chocolate and some plain).

I have the dog's annual vaccination today just before 4pm and otherwise it'll be a very relaxing evening.

Spence slept in a bit and then got to doing school before volleyball.  Math today was back to the Alpha Omega books, reading, printing, essay, history & drum practice.

Time for lunch, shower and then we headed off for volleyball practice.  Last practice before xmas break and the kids had a great time - Spencer's serves have really come along since he started and he even had practice with three other girls today ..... which meant he kept getting distracted and dropping the ball :)  Actually, he did great while being distracted :)

One of the mom's brought cookies for everyone - I had a soft cookie that tasted like a lemon tart - it was so good.

Then it was time to go home, he had to finish his essay editing and then he got video game time with his friends.  In the meantime, I managed to vacuum the main floor and stairs - still have the upstairs to do and got some dishes and laundry done before starting on supper - Thai Noodle Stir-fry.  The electrician came by and told me that it was going to be expensive to put the TV above the fireplace because it used to be a real fireplace.....but then we figured out a way around the problem and got the cost down to something reasonable.  He'll be back next week to install two sets of plugs and then Trev will come by to mount the TV and get everything hooked up.

Thursday is our regular volunteer day. I dropped Spence off and went to work, grabbed him at 1 and headed home.

We got the essay reviewed again - more edits for him.  Then we did math quiz, spelling quiz and drum practice.

He took off to play with his friends online and I took off to grab groceries, last of the xmas gifts and Karma from daycare.

I got hungry along the way and grabbed a snack before heading home.  The boys had already left to see a movie and have dinner by the time I got home.  I had walked the dogs, got stuff unpacked and was ready to head out for my class when the boys came home.

I headed out and worked on disarming big people tonight - got blisters for my efforts, but got a good workout and had a blast.

Woke up today at 7:15 and felt a lot better.  Took Karma into daycare as she was crawling out of her skin....then got fed and felt decent for the first time since Monday.  I did a bit of work, started up my webinar and woke Spence up for school.

He did his reading, printing, math, spelling, drums, history, we read Percy Jackson and I went through his edited version of the essay and had more notes for him when I was done.

He took another nap, got showered and ready to go and soon we were off with Kelly & Sam to Jonathan & Donna's place for the afternoon.  We all had a great visit and were back to pick Karma up then walked the dogs and made supper - spaghetti & mushroom sauce for supper tonight.

Now the boys are playing video games, I'm going to catch up on my emails and rest - so that I'm right as rain for tomorrow.

Well Spence got up and did his school yesterday while I was out at a clients.  I ended up going home early as I got Spencer's flu.

I slept all day and am starting to feel better and Spence got the day off school.
