Update on life and back to school
I know it's been awhile that's for sure. I haven't really posted much about what has been going on in my life.IT has gotten even busier than usual. Back in January 2008 I decided to start looking into going back to school for Early Childcare. Since I work from home it needed to be something I could do in between being involved in Kaila's school, the kids in my care, keeping up with the house and my husband joining a volunteer fireman's hall which requires many nights of him being away for training. So after researching some accredited online schools I decided on Kaplan University. I already had known of Kaplan through my high school because they offered SAT prep classes.I looked into making sure they were an accredited school so I would be able to use my degree in my state. So at the end of January I started my journey to receive my Associate of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies (ASIS) with early childhood development emphasis- which mean Early Childcare Associates degree. I figured it was time to get the education to back me up since I have been working in this field for 10 years now. From there I will be halfway to my bachelors degree! I would be graduating this summer but things came up with my daughter where she needed some extra one on one with me so I only did 1 semester and then took off till this past Septemeber. I am now in my 3rd semester still maintaining a 4.0. I was asked to join their honors program before my 3rd semester started. I declined because I bust my butt to get the 4.0 that I do have. All my free time goes to homework . I try and get as much done during the week so I can free up as much free time for Kaila on the weekend. Right now I am trying to still be able to get my schedule done for the kids in my care daily. Right now I just have a 2.5 year old and a 1 year old but I will be up to 2 infants this summer. I am super excited for this but fear that I wont be able to keep up with my house work along with my daily chores. I am hoping to get everything under control before the summer so any advice anyone has I would greatly appreciate it!~

Wow prices have gone up!
Oh my goodness! So I have a top entry litter box...I am still loving it! But anyway sometimes the boys will accidentally step on their business (when my husband slacks on the scooping front) and then they get on the top and well they leave brown smudges. So anyway I always wipe it down with a baby wipe and then spray it with Lysol. So to get back to my "Oh My Goodness" I had to buy Lysol today and boy oh boy has that price gone up! I went to Target and it was $4.99 for a small bottle. I went to Walmart and it was only 10 cents cheaper! I havnt had to buy any in a long time because when Dave closed down that sock shipping business in 2006 they told him he could keep whatever was left in the warehouse and among all the stuff he brought home were 2 huge bottles of Lysol (these ones were twice the size as the one I just bought) and now I am out...boo-hoo! I use that stuff in my garbage can and the litter box all the time or even where someone sneezes....... Yikes he brought home 4 huge bottle of toilet cleaner (they always bought in bulk) I hope that hasnt gone up as much when I run out!
