A Week in Review

This was my first full week of class in about a month. And while it's tough to ease back into the work routine after the holiday break, the beginning of the semester is always kinda fun for me. I'm fresh, students are fresh. We all like each other. That won't necessarily be true 16 weeks from now.

Scooter has been treading on my last nerve this week, and on Wednesday, he didn't help his cause when he rolled in duck poop. Then, he rubbed up against Norah. He had to get a bath, and Norah had to change her clothes.

Norah is sick with a cold, but it must be a slightly worse cold than the normal sniffles because yesterday morning she was a Grumpelstilskin. Very whiny, very clingy, very boogery. Last night, she woke up twice coughing and crying, and she really NEVER wakes during the night. But, she doesn't have a fever, and this morning, she seems to be in a better mood and she's running around terrorizing Scooter. Still lots of boogers.

Tonight, Jerry and I are going on our first date of the year. We traded friends for babysitting (they're going out tomorrow evening and we're going out tonight), so that works out well and we don't have to pay $12/hour for a babysitter. So, now our dilemma is what we'll do on our date. We'll for sure go out to dinner, but then we were thinking of a movie but aren't even aware of what's playing right now. Any movie suggestions?

That's about it for this week. Jerry and I both have Monday off for MLK day, so we have a long weekend ahead of us, yay! We need it after this one, full week of work :)

Date night! How I have missed you (and we don't have kids). Can't help you on the movie front, but there is always bowling and beer...

who said anything about not paying me $12 an hour?

A date with your spouse? Does that even exist? We've only been out alone twice since Connor was born (nearly 3 now!). Something's definitely going around. We've all got it, and most everyone I know has had something already this year. Enjoy your night out!

I highly recommend seeing "The Kings Speech" :)

Duck poop is used in all types of moisturizing creams. Scooter must know that! HA

When my dogs do something like that I *TRY* to laugh about it. But I understand how frustrating it can be.

enjoy the date!!!

Enjoy your date night! We really enjoyed The Fighter and I have also heard that Black Swan is excellent - but intense!!

Jess said...

Hope you have a good time on your date. Great idea to trade babysitting duties with friends!

Just catching up. Love the shorter 'do. Hope you had fun on date night. Jon and I are looking forward to taking one on or near our anniversary.

Ahh the mythical date night.....I hope you had fun. We attempted a date night a month ago. We ended up eating at Quizno's then went to Barnes and Noble to read. We are lame!
