That is the only way I can describe my day. I had all of my kids today and it was definitely a Friday. The best part was when they decided to clean up while I was changing a diaper by throwing toys in the garbage. One little boy came over to me and said he got the toy he was holding out of the garbage. I asked why it was in the garbage and he said one of the other boys threw it away. Sure enough, I get done with the diaper and the garbage can was half full of toys. Luckily it was the garbage that had the mandarin oranges and pancakes they didn't eat at breakfast and not the bathroom garbage with the dirty diapers.

Now I'm worried about Spooky the fish again. I noticed his tail fin looked injured and thought it was from the decorative coral I had in the tank so I removed it and put plants in instead. Then I noticed this afternoon that the top fin looks split. He seems healthy otherwise so I am thinking of cleaning the tank and everything with hot water and then treating it with some tablets I got that are supposed to be good for lots of fish problems, including split fins. The things I do for these kids.

Tomorrow I am getting new tennis shoes because mine are getting too worn out to be comfortable. Really looking forward to going to the mall since I haven't been there in nearly a year.

I dusted off my Leslie Sansone DVDs this week. It felt pretty good. I still miss my critters, but it's time to focus on getting more good exercise in. A new month means it's time for a new start.

    Ugh! I've had a lot of people tell me I should be a teacher or child care provider. I just look at them like they're crazy! Get nice shoes... it sounds like you've earned them emoticon emoticon

    Getting new shoes now isn't a bad idea. Use the DVDs and walk inside with them to help break them in, then come spring they'll be great for outside!

    Is there any way the kids could've gotten their hands in the tank and hurt the fish? Just wondering. I didn't realize fish could get split fins.

    Kids are such a handful sometimes, and you've got several to deal with - I can't imagine the trouble they can get into. You must be doing something right!
