With the grace of Bella Swan...

Today I had a Dr. appt early in the morning. I had to undergo a few minor tests. After a few minutes of passing most of these the Dr. said "OK, now we are going to check your balance!". I immediately confessed that I am clumsy and uncoordinated. I don't think he really believed me until he saw this with his own eyes. He asked me to close my eyes and stand up straight - easy right? I quickly started wobbling and he had to grab me so I would not fall. sigh. He had a little laugh about how I wasn't joking and we tried again but this time he was prepared to catch me. He then asked if my balance problems were recent and I replied that No, I have pretty much been this way my entire life. Enough so to earn nicknames like "Grace" and "Oops". Later when I relayed all of this to my husband he cracked up laughing because he knows first hand how accident prone I am.

Miss C. drove me NUTS all day on Saturday. I should have figured out why *that time of the month*. When I walked in the door Friday evening she started complaining that she was bored and that we never do anything on trackout. SHE JUST HAD HER LAST DAY OF SCHOOL ON FRIDAY. ugh.... She had not even been out of school for 2.5 hours. This continued all day Saturday. Ryan was working this weekend and Miss E. was very sick so we really could not go anywhere. Miss C. kept it up all day until I noticed that she was posting on Facebook how we never do anything, she is bored and we are the lamest parents ever. So I did what any good parent would do - I grounded her immediately. And publicly (on Facebook). I don't think she will be doing that again.

After I was finished I ran and had some labs taken. We quickly ran home so I could work for a few hours. The girls are tracked out of school so I took half a day. In the afternoon Miss C. also had a Dr.'s appt so the little girls were trying to entertain themselves. They decided to play "mermaid". They took blankets and elastic pony tail holders to make their tails. It was pretty hysterical. Miss E. apparently was getting hot so she took off her shirt and pretended to be a Merman. They looked just so darn adorable. Of course later that afternoon they were arguing and screaming. That was not so adorable.

Tonight I am catching up with giveaways and drops. I hope to have my new giveaways posted soon. One should be posted by Thursday.
