Back in the Routine

This week has been a little tough on all of us ... Mr. ESPN went back to work Monday, I went back to work Tuesday and the girls went back to school yesterday.  Needless to say the early morning alarm clock ringing is not music to my ears after two weeks off.  The only one who had no issues adjusting back to the routine is Chatty, who bounced in my bathroom yesterday morning at 6 am dressed and excited for school.  Well I guess 1 for 4 isn't horrible.  Oh how I wish Bia and I had her enthusiasm in the mornings!

Anyway - back to soccer practice and games and tournaments and dance and homework and all the other stuff that seems to occupy so much of our time.  Add to that a little congestion and cough to 3 out of 4 of our family members and there it is - our normal routine!  Now if I could just nail down some healthy meals my kids will actually eat, time to exercise, more sleep, etc. my routine would be even better!  Maybe it will happen this year ... I can always hope right?

You and me both, sister.

Just catching up. Love that gingerbread house. Plastic? Genius!

Headed to Disneyland today. Think of yall each time we go. When are you coming back to visit?

We are fighting the congestion/cold too! UGH...!!
Healthy meals that the kids will eat.
Hmm..let me think about it. I'll email.
Do they like any veggies at all?
What about Mr. ESPN and you?

Seriously, when you figure this out, pass that knowledge on to me. Please.

I know exactly what you mean about the alarm clock after 2 weeks off! The first morning was torture!

Hope you are over your colds and things are going well. Our kids head back tomorrow, even though I haven't been off work I am ready for the routine again.

I'm pretty sure we both need a chauffeur. And a chef! I'm still having a hard time adjusting to the routine. Though we're year round school so my girls are off for three week after this week!

UGH! The routine! We are still trying to get adjusted to life after Christmas and Disney. My five year old must say about 5 times a day I wish we were still at Disney!

Gymnastics and Softball pitching tonight. Right back in it.

Oh and I am having severe meal issues - let me know when you get this worked out!
