I have had some serious cabin fever this week! To top it off, we got about a foot of snow Thursday night into Friday. Ugh. Luckily, the temps are supposed to start climbing, so I don't think it will stick around too long! The snow brought a snow day of course. Emily hated it. She would much rather be in school, and she let me know it...all day! This snow day also means that the kids will now lose a day of Spring break. Hurricane Sandy brought us many days of no school...as well as almost 12 days without power! That ate up all of the allotted days off for the year. Freakin weather.
This morning my sister got me out of the house, and we went to Old Navy. I love that store! I can always find something that makes me feel good...and I don't get to go often enough. Today's favorite purchase was a pair of super cute sunglasses. Over the Summer, our cars got broken into...yep, right in our own driveway! Hub's car got most of the damage--they ripped the flippin dashboard out, and stole his bag of tools and other various items. They ripped the radio out of my car, but left it on the ground...but the little turds(detectives think its kids) took my most favorite pair of shades!! Bastards. So hooray for new sunglasses, and longer days!
When did that happen? Craziness, I tell you! We kicked off her birthday on Thursday by participating in World Rare Disease Day. We all proudly wore our Dup15q shirts, and Emily's school even wore blue too! There was a Facebook event created, and it was amazing to see all of the participants supporting our kids! Truly felt the love from all around the world!
On Friday, her actual birthday, I brought cupcakes to her school! So much fun. Got to hang out for music time, then we all sang to my big girl! It also happened to be mismatch day!
I've been loving instagram by the by!
Then Saturday was the family celebration! Emily, unfortunately, started coming down with a cold, but she was a trooper and hung on til cake time!
Today is Monday. Back to reality, but I love Mondays! I always feel motivated to get stuff done around the house. Today I don't have the little guy I normally watch, so I can REALLY do some movin and shakin!
I have been happily married for 9 years(we've been together for 15 though!). We have two beautiful kids. Emily is 6 and has recently been diagnosed with Dup15q syndrome(a very rare chromosomal abnormality). She is doing terrific in her school-her progress has been amazing! David is 4; He's our little monkey-always exploring something and trying to assert his independence!!
