Yoga Girls

Lately, I have been trying to do some yoga dvd that I have. It doesn't work out very well with the girls fighting for my attention when I want to be exercising, but in the process, I have been able to get them to "do yoga" and they are proud to yell "Mom, I'm doing YOGA" in the middle of the different poses! I didn't get pics tonight because as they were doing yoga, Ryan and I were engaged in taking the ugly victorian border down! If ever you need to remove wallpaper or border, go to home depot and get DIF! rip the paper off, then roll on or spray this gel! wait a few minutes and use a scraper to remove the paste... works like a charm. Needless to say, we have been busy with that. the kids are doing what they do, fussing at one another. and I am gearing down for the night of american idol and grays anatamy. can't wait. anyway... that is what is going on tonight!

my new job

so for some of you, you know that i am now working at a nursing home closer to home. it is about two miles from home, which is nice. i am working on the alzheimers unit there (sometimes it feels more like the psych ward) but these people don't understand that they are hurting us, so we are ok with the abuse we sometimes encounter at work. ryan too works on the same unit. i am working day shift and he does evenings. we are really enjoying having our shifts back this way. i am now able to sleep at night and spend time with the girls in the evenings.

on the way home from work i noticed that someone was giving away a treadmill. i, like maria, am all about cheap, but free is better. i have been wanting to get a piece of exercise equipment and since the man was outside the house i stopped to see if it still worked and when he said it did, i asked him to help me get it in my van. so now i have a treadmill and the man said to me as i left, "happy exercising" which i thought was really nice of him to wish me well.

kenzie went to zoey's birthday party last saturday, and had a blast. she wants to have hers at the park where zoey had hers. we are thinking about it. kenzie will be 6 on sunday, so we are planning on doing a party later this month or early next month. will keep everyone posted as i can on that.

maddie is starting to talk more and more. now i have two kids talking non stop.

and that is about the update other than: I AM IN THE MIDDLE OF TAKING DOWN SOME UGLY BORDER! then i will paint the living room.

we wish everyone well and talk to you all soon

so i thought i would give a huge update...

christmas has come and gone since the last time i was on here. ryan's computer completely crashed and mine can't pick up a signal, so i have to blog when i can.... kenzie is back in school and loving it. maddie has had a trip to the e r and is fine! i am starting a new job this week that is much closer to home and pays a little more. in addition to that i will be back on day shift, so i will be able to sleep at night.... pics to come when i can.... oh, yeah, kenzie got her ears pierced... so much has happened that i can't remember it all!
