One of the Beanie Beans is sick. Margeaux, the youngest. I knew she was starting to feel sick yesterday when she got up with a sore throat and headache. I plied her with children's ibuprofen and off to school she went. She seemed sluggish when I picked them up from school but she said she was OK. We get home, we start snacks and homework everything is fine. I make dinner (to be ready later--you'll see why in a minute). We pack up and off to music lessons. They are all studying the piano and doing exceptionally well. By the time we get home which is about 5:00 they have about 45 minutes to eat dinner before their Dad picks them up for soccer. Khalil and Margeaux were supposed to play indoor soccer--but not now, because I didn't send in the registration form...I thought if sent it with them on the first day of practice that would be fine. That is what I have done with Briana and Gregory for basketball. It is the same folks who run the league. They were turned away! So needless to say I had some little kids who were very crossed with Mommy Dearest. (sigh)
On a another note. I am throwing a party! A release party, a Babz can go OUT after 7 pm party!. I will be done with Home Confinement on March 31, 2008! I am grateful I got to be home for the remaining 5 months of my sentence! I am not even going to whine about it. I am however going to throw a party!
And last but not least, I am working on a project with some of the coolest folks on the planet! Folks I met in the Blog World! More details later.
Oh and my neighbor got their kid, Alex, a dog, named Simba...aaargh! He looks like a white bedroom slipper. That just added to the Bad Mommy List--another fucking reason my kids are mad with me. They want a dog! Ah NO!
That's my life and I am happy to be living it!
