Friday (2/9) We were all up and out of the house on time again today and even though we had a day off this week, we were all dragging. Adrian and I got AJ on the bus and then he left for work while I got the other boys ready. I dropped them off and headed to the Y to sub a Zumba Toning and Zumba class this morning for a friend. I had a great time with the seniors, they make my heart smile! Then I ran out of class and headed back to the school to have lunch with Daniel for his birthday. Two days in the cafeteria is enough for me for this school year!!
Monday (2/12) After all of the birthday celebrations, it felt good to get back to our routine today! We all got up and out of the house on time for school and work this morning. After I dropped everyone off at school, I headed to the Y to take a Body Pump class and then teach my Silver Sneakers class. After those classes, I came home and did a few things around the house including making lunches for the next few days and dinner for tonight. Soon it was time for AJ to get home and then for us to leave to pick up the other boys and head to the Y for Zumba.
After class, we came home and had a quick dinner before AJ and Adrian headed to out to Boy Scouts tonight. Zak was also supposed to have Scouts but since his leader is sick, they decided to cancel for tonight. I stayed home with the other boys and cleaned up the house while they played with Beyblades and magna-tiles. When AJ got home, we got the boys to bed and then we settled in to watch some TV. Unfortunately AJ wasn't feeling well and he got sick soon after he went to sleep. So he spent the night in our bed with Adrian while I slept in the spare room. Rough start to our week!
Tuesday (2/13) It was a rough night of sleeping between AJ not feeling well and Zak getting up for the day at 3:30am because he was afraid he would be attacked by a lion if he went back to sleep. Yawn. I got a few more hours of sleep while Adrian dealt with him for a while. Then we all got up to start our day. AJ missed school so it started a little later than usual. I got Daniel and Zak to school and then headed to teach my two Silver Sneakers classes. I'm thankful Adrian was able to work from home for the day so I could still do my scheduled day.
After my classes, I quickly changed and headed in to the school to sub for the afternoon. It was my first repeat class and it went really well again, that's a class of great kids. When the school day was over, I brought Daniel and Zak home to see how everything was going here. AJ was feeling better and was able to get some of his homework done during the day. Adrian got a lot of work done during the day and then headed to basketball practice tonight. We had a relaxing night of watching TV and resting since we were all tired after a rough night. We got the boys put down to bed and Adrian had a few more things to do for work. Then we watched a comedy and headed to bed, hopeful to get a good night of sleep.
Wednesday (2/14) Happy Valentine's Day!! Another rough night of sleep for me. This time is was Daniel who was up around 4am for the day. His nose is stuffed and throat is sore so he was having trouble sleeping. We went and "rested" in the spare room together until about 5am, but they he was bored so we came downstairs. Adrian and I got AJ up and out to school since he is thankfully feeling better today. Daniel needed to stay home since he wasn't feeling well. This upset Zak since it also meant that I couldn't come in for his class party. I got him ready and dropped him off to school crying. I was happy to hear from his teacher that he was fine when he arrived to class & did great all day today!
Daniel and I spent the day resting and relaxing. I encouraged him to take a nap, but he never did. We watched TV, played video games and I got a bunch of stuff done. Soon AJ came home and then it was time to pick up Zak and head to the Y for my Zumba class. Since Daniel was feeling better I decided to go to class instead of finding a sub. We had a fun class and then we headed to Marco's Pizza to pick up the boys' dinner. They had pizza in the boxes they decorated as a fundraiser for their school. Adrian and I opted out of pizza and had chicken and risotto. It was a late dinner because of traffic and when we finished there was a little time for homework, TV and playing before bed time.
