Hallelujah its Friday

1. One more week of school left. Even though I no longer get summers off, I am still looking forward to not having to get the girls up.

2. My friend Ben and his girlfriend are visiting from Virginia and I can't wait. I need a weekend away with my friend Jager. Speaking of Jager I got a Jager tee shirt.

3. My toilet has continued flushing which is a giant relief. In case you missed it you can read all about my bathroom misadventure here

4. I haven't said to much about this, but I took on 2 big projects at work and have been frantically working on 2 grants. I finally turned them in on Wednesday. Now to wait....
5. Its almost election primary.....I sooo can not wait.  I so sick of ads and signs and random strangers showing up at my door. Also, come back and visit on Monday. I will share my top reasons for not voting for a candidate. HINT it has NOTHING to do with what party they are for.

    1. We should get summers off. Especially on pretty days when all you want to do is be outside.

  3. Happy Friday! I work all weekend as a server, lol.

    I used to love getting summers off as a student. I bet you have some fun things planned for the little ones. I hope you and your friends from Virginia have an amazing weekend!

    1. I miss summers off. I use to teach and summers off were awesome. But I like my current job better. We don't really have any plans. other than a little vacation and laying in the pool, if we ever get it up. I hate you have to work all weekend. I use to work fast food. That sucked pretty bad.

  5. Spend More Time With Your Children http://www.nightart.org/fundus.
    It does not matter if you work full time or part time. Maybe you stay at home with your children but you are working from home. Even if you stay home with your children, you are busy trying to get everything done. No matter who you are, you probably think that you are not spending enough time with your children. Quality time, that is. There are many ways to spend more time with your children.
    Your children do not need to play every sport or do every extracurricular activity out there. You could spend all of your time running your children from one practice to another. Pick just one or two activities that your children love and stick with them.
    Plan family dinners where everyone sits at the table, eats, and talks about their day.
    Make dinners special so everyone likes to spend time together while eating.
    Let your children help when you are working on things.
    They can help fix dinner, clean, and fix things. Children learn by watching and doing. Chores can turn into time together so that they are much more enjoyable.
    Do things that your children want to do.
    It is hard when the house is a mess but get on the floor and play with your children. Play games that they enjoy. Have a movie night and watch their favorite movie.
    Find things that you enjoy doing together.
    Arts and crafts can be a big hit. NightArt is helping bring parents and children together. You can design a drawing and watch it light up together.
    No one feels like they spend enough time with their children. However, you need to make the most of time spent together, instead of worrying if you are spending enough time together. Find things that you enjoy doing together, like NightArt. Check it out at http://www.nightart.org/fundus. It will bring out the artist in everyone, bringing families together.
