and am tired out! I think this has got to stop. I feel like I wake up running and go to bed, half thinking of all the things I should have gotten done, need to get done and why am I not up doing them? <p>
I have a bunch of pictures to post of this past weeks doings!  On Thursday, the boys competed in a local Track and Field Day with all the private schools and homeschools. There is over 600 children usually there and it was crowded! the boys had alot of fun. We were there from 8:30 am- 2:30 pm, outside. The morning hours, I was very cold, but after 11, got up and was moving around, running from one end to the other, around the buildings to keep track of both competitors and get pictures.
At one point I needed to run to mail a letter so went to find my van completely blocked in!!!Thankfully a woman was warming up in her car right behind me and was able to let me out, or I don’t know what I would have done! Today, P. is very sore from all the running as he ran hard! He had soccer tonight too, which again, I froze my ears off and finally gave up and sat in the car a bit! <p> Did you know you can order shoes from Payless Shoe store online and they have different sales than in the store on the same shoes? We  have been shoe shopping for the two oldest and it was hard to find a plain pair of decent tennis shoes in a price under $15 each that was in stock!  I looked online and they had a great pair on sale for $11.99 and Buy one get one half off. So, I thought, I would check the store and maybe just buy them there. the store has the same shoes, but they were not on sale and were $16.99. I could order them online, pick them up at the store when they come in, for about $10 cheaper, I just have to wait for them a bit longer.  Anyhow, I found it interesting….. I checked their sizes in store, found a cute pair of shiny ballet flats for myself for $3 there and knew that I was ordering the right size online…(Do the feet measuring things work for any children, or just not mine?).
<p> We still have many potatoes here, but we have been reheating and not really cooking much! I did make chicken broth today! <p> I am really tired, my youngest son has been sick with a cold and a low grade fever that has been interesting to deal with, plus I had to take my other son to the doctor to get his finger x-rayed that got smashed int he van door last week. It was still very swollen and painful to move. The x-rays looked okay to my untrained eye, but you never know! <p> So, I have a messy kitchen, dirty windows, but hey, I have spent the last couple days spending alot of time with the boys!
