Thanks for all your compliments! my house looks 300x better! and from now on I will hire painters to do such big jobs! if it took 2 guys a full week to paint it then it would have taken little ol'me 5 x longer and a lot more stress!
J is coming home tomorrow I am so excited. He is leaving in the morning cuz the roads are so bad. We have so much snow but I have to say that I would take this over the crazy weather the coast and fraser valley is getting! like any day! the snow is not so hard to drive in with 4 wheel drive or snow tires and they are so awesome at keeping the roads clear......much better than what I am used too!
Hailey got sent to the principal's office on Tuesday for fighting.........um yah great eh?! I was a little shocked and I have been thinking about it all week..... like how to deal with it......and then this morning as I was cleaning my bathroom (buying stuff on e-bay!! ok can we say addicted) I remembered that I myself had a few trips to the principal's office! yup guess I know where she gets that strong sense of injustice from! I got in trouble for speaking out in class and raising my voice at my teacher. I actually got the strap! yup member the days they gave the strap out at school?!! I had it a few times! I don't know what my parents thought about it...... things were kind of different back then. I think I would be mad if I found out my child got the strap at school! I asked today at the office what the protocol for that kind of stuff is, since she told me not the school. I was told that it really wasn't that bad and if it was something on a continuing basis or serious then I would have been contacted right away. I felt better but wonder how she is at school! she has been bothering her big sister's at lunch and I think generally just having the hardest time adapting. This is also her first year of full school days so I think that adds to it as well. I get frustrated with her so easily but it seems the more I remember what I was like the more I am realizing the apple hasn't fallen far from the tree.......and I think we are a lot like my dad aka papa!! he got into trouble at school too......think I see a pattern here with focusing! hmmmm so I bought some Barley Green today on his persistence to help our immune systems and boost our system. I also bought some frozen fruit and will be adding the powder to the smoothies for all of us for breakfast. I am planning to take her and I to the Naturalpath sometime I just cringe at the $$$ that will cost. The big thing of powder I bought was $105.00 and will last us some time.......I want to try this first and see how it works before I spend hundreds on testing and more tonics pills and powders.
I am officially the DPAC rep for our PAC. I am glad to be helping and involved, really for the first time ever and my oldest is in grade 7! but with little ones it is hard! I also signed up for a few committee's so staying busy and I feel good about that.
Ok well I have to clean the house since I did not hire a house keeper at all.........just too much money and there are other things I could do with that $. I will most likely not post again this weekend since J will be home but I will be by here and there to visit my fav bloggers.
Have a great weekend!
