Updated: There's not enough time to come up with anything good.

Here is my to-do list for tonight (Thursday)
1. Write on Christmas cards
2. Make grocery list for after work tomorrow
3. Help Hugh make lunches
4. Clean off the disaster on the kitchen table
5. Finish pukey laundry (if you can believe it, Calder was puking sick AGAIN last night)
6. Mark Foundations Pre-Calculus 10 exams

This list will easily take 2 hours. The exams will take almost that much on their own. It is 6:41 pm. On topof all that, I am going to spend the next 19 minutes with Calder before he hits the sack. If I want to end my night snuggled on my couch with Hugh rubbing my feet as we watch last nights Modern Family, I better get on it!

1. Write on Christmas cards Done! - But only the ones I HAD to get done for today!
2. Make grocery list for after work tomorrow Done! I actually got this done while Hugh and I were driving to work!
3. Help Hugh make lunches Sort of? I cut up the egg for the egg salad. I wasn't really very helpful on this front! Hugh made lunches this morning. He's the greatest!
4. Clean off the disaster on the kitchen table Sort of? Now there is only a disaster on the East end of it!
5. Finish pukey laundry (if you can believe it, Calder was puking sick AGAIN last night) Sort of? Just remembered I got it into the wash, but forgot to transfer to the dryer!
6. Mark Foundations Pre-Calculus 10 exams Done!

UPDATE #2: If you read this earlier this morning and came back for the update, you will have seen one blog of a paragraph when you were first here. I wrote that post on my iPad - I just can't get the formating I do on it to actually stick. Ideas?
UPDATE #3: I got my foot rub, but Modern Family was a re-run. Rip. Off.


  1. Oh man... good luck- how did it go? Hope you feel accomplished even if you didn't get all those things done!

What I'm wearing

After my Simons' flop, I recently picked up three pairs of jegging capris at Costco. I think they were about $16 each. I got them in grey (above), teal (also above), and white. I absolutely love them and have been wearing them like crazy. My favorite of the two outfits is the bottom one. The jean jacket is Mavi and I HIGHLY recommend it. In fact, I recently bought another. Exact same style, different wash. This jacket was recommended by both Deena and Christy, so you really can't go wrong. The scarf is one I picked up this spring (Gap). I heart orange and teal. Last week I mentioned trying to define my signature look and that bottom one pretty much encapsulates it. . .
And here it is again. LOVE this one too. Cardigan and scarf are recent purchases along with the grey tee (Old Navy). Jeans are old (American Eagle) and shoes are old (Nine West). I can't wait to recreate this one!
These. Jeans. (Gap). I can't get enough of them. I wore them to professional development o…

Calder Update

Has Calder ever gotten into sports the last couple of months!?! Below he is at a Rush lacrosse game with Hugh and his buddy Kohen. Calder has been watching baseball, lacrosse, and now the hockey playoffs like crazy. In fact, he has stopped asking to watch any of his "shows". He just wants to watch sports. Oh. . . and add NASCAR to that list. Our boy loves his cars. I don't think that will ever change!

Here is Calder's funniest shark tooth yet. His permanent tooth pushed through in front of his baby tooth!  It was like this for weeks. No gap toothed grin for this boy! Below is the day it fell out!
Calder is doing so well in school. His teacher speaks of what a great student he is. Hearing her say these things actually makes me wish he used a few more manners and a bit more kindness at home! LOL. But, if he is going to be on his best behavior somewhere, I want it to be when we aren't around. Although it was great to hear about Calder's learning successes at pa…


All of Hugh's hockey buddies call him "Hammy".

Hugh has been calling Calder "Ham" for a long time. I can't even remember when it started.

Calder started calling Boone "Bean" when he first came home from the hospital. That evolved into "Boone Dog", "The Dog", and just simply, "Dog".  Boone is not a fan of nicknames. Often after we use one of his he will say, "I not Da Dog, I just Boone." Hilarious.

Boone has called Lawson "Dawsie" from about month two. (He called her "baby" for the first two months.) Last week Boone called her Lawson for the first time ever. It took a long time for him to put the "L" on Lawson. He would repeat after us "La La La La, Dawsie". He has said "Lawson" twice since the momentous occasion last week, but I think he got too much attention for using it and has moved back to "Dawsie". "Dawsie" likely isn't going any…
