It's nearing the end of the week! I've been home with dd, who turned 9 this week because she's sick. Luckily yesterday I didn't have to go to work until the evening after hubby gets home, and today is my day off, so I'm able to stay with her. She seems to be getting better, but still has a bit of a fever.
There are days that come up that I realize we don't really have much in terms of backup plans for babysitting. In fact, I don't have an evening babysitter anymore for those days we want to head out to dinner or a movie, because the ones we've had have all grown up and gone away and have real jobs now!
Grandparents all live in other cities. Thankfully we do have friends who we are able to trade off with in emergencies sometimes... I'm very thankful for that!!
DD is now taking advanced recreation gymnastics...which means she's now learning to do cartwheels ON the balance beam. How scary is that??
I think I'm nearly set up to begin this years tax season. I would like to buy a cell phone though. I need to do some research on what is best for my needs.
