I already had a doctor's appointment scheduled for this afternoon, so scheduled to be off of work from lunch on...
Last night, both Kelsey and Alex were complaining about not feeling well, sore throats, congestion, you know the drill. Kelsey had herself convinced she has the swine flu, so we had to look up the symptoms online to convince her that she was not struck with the dreaded disease. (She's still not convinced).
Both girls had to be in school today for PSSA testing, so filled with cold and cough medicine...out the door they go. Wasn't long before the first text message is received "Mom can you pleeeeaaasseee pick me up after PSSA's". Needless to say...off to the school I go and both girls were home and back in bed by 10:00 this morning.
They were given strict instructions to keep their boogied-up tissues to themselves and to cough only in their own sleeves. I soooo don't want it!

Then Noel put up two birdhouses right outside of my computer room so I can birdwatch while I work. It is National Bird Day today...so do something nice for our feathered friends!
Sadie gaurded the area for intruders.

We then went to Rob and Sonya's for a visit and tour of their lovely new home. It was a great evening all around and Noel and I are looking forward to doing it again.

Tonight, Noel and I presented at our PTAP program. PTAP stands for Parental Truancy Awareness Program. It's a program to help deter truancy and helps parents understand why kids are truanct and what can be done to prevent future truancy issues. The programs are held several times throughout the year at each school district within the county. I usually volunteer for at least two of the schools, but I especially like it when Noel gets a chance to join us. Tonight's meeting was pretty successful and when that happens, it makes me look forward to the next one. Remember...be cool...stay in school. :)

Today, after we took Kelsey to work, we headed to the playground (thought I was past the playground years!). Alex and her friend Jordan found themselves having fun as they were trying to amuse our little buddy.
So, here we are...ready for another week and whatever adventures it may hold.

I don't know what happened to me over the weekend, but I have transformed into a lady with an organizing mission. I reorganized just about every closet or cupboard in the house! I'm a maniac! I dug into the surplus closet, the canning closet, both linen closets, all the food-catching cupboards in the kitchen and even the cupboard under the kitchen sink! Someone help me!
Look...I even organized the

Happy Valentine's Day everyone! Hope you all had a loved-filled day! Noel and I really don't celebrate Valentine's Day much anymore. We're pretty romantic throughout the year without dropping huge amounts of money on each other to prove it. (The kids tell us we're gross (ha ha). We used to do it all up, but with age comes wisdom! We celebrated by shopping together for a new kitchen faucet...got one we love too!
Kelsey, on the other hand, is having her first real Valentine's Day with her boyfriend Allen. (They just missed it last year) She is making him a dinner that includes his favorite foods (steak and ribs) and has set the table to perfection. He already surprised her with flowers before their official date time. One thing she did that is so adorable is she filled a jar with little pieces of red and white paper, each one holding a trait about Allen that she loves. She decorated the jar with the words "why I love you" and added a red and white ribbon. So cute. Here's the jar:
