The Friday Five: 2-17-12

Happy Friday! We've made it through another hectic week! I hope everyone had a nice Valentine's Day. Can you believe February is half over?  What have you all been up to? Here's what's been going on in my little corner of the world:

1.Knees. So I didn’t mention it last week, but I took a little spill on our icy road last Thursday. For me, this is an annual event. Every year, I seem to injure a different body part. This year it was my knee. I was worried when a few days later it was still bothering me and was twice its normal size. Luckily, after a lot of tlc and ice, it seems to be doing much better. Just as I thought all knee woes were over, my oldest son fell and hurt his knee playing basketball Monday night. Then on Wednesday, my daughter fell at school and she hurt her knee! Anyone else .. going.. going? Luckily (thankfully) all knees appear to be healing nicely.

2. Dance Competition. Saturday was my daughter’s first official dance competition. My daughter is on three teams – lyrical, hip hop, and jazz. What can I say? All three teams were awesome. I even managed to put her hair into a bun thanks to an entire can of hairspray and about a hundred bobby pins. We’re still finding them in her hair (kidding! ... although I did use a ridiculous amount of hair pins & spray.) One down, four more to go!

3. Renovations. We have a usable family room and office – walls, carpet, cabinets, furniture - everything! Today is walk through day. There are only a handful of odds and ends left, and then we can FINALLY start moving stuff back into the rooms. So far I’m loving everything. We still need to finish buying furniture for the office, but we should have that wrapped up soon. Have you seen the artwork for over my desk?

4. The S Word. As if knee issues weren’t enough, two of my three kids are also sick. I took them each  to the doctor this week (One on Monday, the other on Thursday.) Both times, the doctor asked the same question – how long have they been sick? Both times I couldn’t really answer. I feel like they’ve both been sick for at least a month, maybe even two. (Bad Mommy.) Antibiotics all around...

5. Book News. Thank you to everyone who participated in the Win For E-Books Promotion – there were over 2,000 entries! I really really hope one of my readers wins the Kindle Fire ! Visit to find out!
