I Made it to Ironville!

Felicity had been sleeping like champ for almost the whole week since she was sick.  Until last night.  She was tired but not staying asleep.  I ended up spending quite a bit of time up with her - laying on her floor waiting for her to fall asleep.  she did play for a little bit but then she spread out on the floor, too.  I put her back to bed but every time I moved she was up and wanting out.  
Finally, she fell asleep with me in our bed.  I think she might be cold.  She doesn't sleep with any blankets and the bigger baby pj's often don't have feet.  I'll have to start getting her used to a blanket.  We could do sleep sacks which we had done until summer time but then we need to keep buying them when we already have quite a few blankets.  Plus, they'll be using blankets for nap time when she goes to the toddler room at day care around Christmas. 
Need lots of coffee today.

Trying to Tri

2 mile time trial this morning to gauge my fitness. Ran it in 13:18 (6:39), but it was a bit disappointing. I ran it hard, so I'm not upset at the effort. I guess I was hoping I hadn't lost as much fitness as I apparently have. Heavy doses of long runs are in the forecast for the next two months if I'm going to pr a 10k.

It's the first day of school!  Check FB  a bit later for pic's.  Alex and Liam are really excited.  They were both up around 6:00 chomping at the bit to go.  It is making for a long morning as they are ready and still have an hour and a half to wait. 

I still have Cole home as well as a friend of ours son, M.  It has been a long week already with 5 kids for the past few days and now two kids for the rest of the week.  M has some special needs so it's challenging.  At least he isn't as difficult as Cole so there is that.  I hope they get along today.

Bryan is working on his retirement papers.  It looks like May might be the time frame he's looking at.  Of course this is all assuming it gets approved.  A big if.  It's been denied once so I am a bit more skeptical then Bry is.  Time will tell.
Not much else happening.  I am chomping at the bit to workout.  Soon...

I'm feeling a lot more optimistic about the school year. I've done so much work the last two years to construct quality lessons AND make them accessible and organized digitally and somehow forgot about all that over the summer. I just have the one "new" class (French I-which I taught it in Kansas, but with different materials) and I made the school order new books and support materials so I shouldn't have to create too much for it. I know exactly what I'm doing the first day (Thursday) so that's a lot of pressure off.
