Well, its been a week since Hurricane Sandy and some people and businesses have their power back so some kids have been able to return to school, my daughter included. This is good, but it was so hard getting up this morning. We were kind of lucky that my son still didn't have to go to school-he goes back tomorrow-so we didn't have to wake up at 5am. Instead, my alarm was set for 7 am, my daughter covered her face with her stuffed animal, Nosy! LOL, she really didn't want to get up, especially when I told her we were walking to school. Her school is only 3 blocks away, so why lose my parking & waste gas, which is currently limited here in Jersey, to go 3 blocks. I admit, I wasn't too happy with the walking idea either....its gotten really cold, but it definitely was the better choice. Tomorrow I will be driving farther to take my son to school, so anyway I can save my gas will have to do!
So now she's in school, my son is studying for 2 upcoming tests and I'm trying to sort through the mess in my house. I have laundry to do and a ton of papers and magazines to sort through and throw away. I also need to figure out what to make for dinner this week...I really think it will be very basic meals. My hubby and I are, once again, attempting a low-carb diet so I will have to prepare alternate meals for my kids. What's it looking like so far? A lot of chicken & salad for us & chicken with rice or pasta for the kids! Fun!
