... well at least for 2 days of the week. It was easy when I could do all my work the night before or they took 2 hour naps everyday. Now I have conference calls, sometimes in 3 hour blocks, so I got a cordless phone with a headset with a mute button. I love SuperWhy! and BlockBuster. Also both girls have pc's in my office so they can have computer time as well. I can't wait unitl it gets hot, so that I can work out on the patio while they play or swim.. I also take my laptop to Chicken Red's which has free wi-fi and they love to go to chicken red's. Also this summer my nephew will be staying with us, so eventhough he will only be 8 years old, I have already designated him the "nanny". Isabel will be in school in August, which only leave Emma at home for 2 more years. A 2 day a week preschool is probably in her future.


The 3rd time in my life

I locked my keys in my car with the car running. The first 2 times, my kids were in the car. Now my husband has to get the girls up, throw them in the van, and fight rush hour, so that I can unlock my car. And on top of that I don't think there is enough gas in the car, so hopefully it will last long enough for him to follow me to a gas station. I hope to accomplish this all before my 9:00 am meeting.

"Skinny B*tch"

Ok, I can already hear all the gasps. Yes I bought a book entitled "Skinny B*tch", and let me tell you this was a very informative book about the food that we eat. I was laughing at the way the authors presented the information, not only informative, but funny as well. Our family had already started incorporating more fruits and vegetables into our diet last year. As well as eating more natural food choices, like natural peanut butter, organic foods, more green veges, and ground turkey and chicken. After reading this book, my thinking on other foods that we eat has changed. I won't go into detail, but the information in this book is shocking. So I have the book if anyone wants to read it.

Side note: I've lost about 13 pounds and I'm on my way to becoming a "Skinny B*tch".

Corporate America

I don't like it. I hate having goals and being measured, politics.. I hate it all.
I want to quit my job. Why? The money is great, I get to work from home 2 days a week so that my kids don't have to be in daycare, I like the people that I work with. But there is still something missing. I don't fill fullfilled, I don't feel like I'm making a difference. I have no idea what I want to be when I grow up.
