Yes, I realize that I said I was going to bed and that I really should be doing that but I just kept thinking about the nicknames I wanted to give the kids. So, here they are. For the two that I nanny for right now, E will be called Scooby because his favorite show is Scooby Doo. M will be Ladybug just because that is the first thing that comes comes to mind when I think of a nickname for her. My little A from my last job will be Sweet Baby A. That is just something that I have always called him. I realize it is long so I may figure out a way to shorten it later. My other A who I babysit for a few times a month will be Minnie. Those will probably be the kids I talk about most for now excpet for my niece but I think I already mentioned her name on here. Well, I think I will go back a edit it out and from now on she will be called bear. I will do that later because inreally do need to get to sleep.

Crazy busy week

I am posting from my bed tonight. I should be sleeping but instead I'm blogging.

I realized that I never got around to posting about last weekend. Last Saturday was Rob's birthday and I made him brownie bottom cheesecake. It was my first time making cheesecake and I think I did a pretty good job. The only problem I had was that I burned up the motor in my mixer. It was just a cheapy from Target but I'm still sad. I had everything mixed up and was about to turn it off when it just shut off and smoke was coming from the vent. Oops.

Anyway, that night he had a few friends over for drinks. We had fun. I wish we had more friends in the area, I love having people over.

On Monday I had off of work. I got some stuff done like post pictures. I sent Sarah pictures of A. I had been meaning to do that for a while.

The rest of the week was just crazy. M was sick with who knows what. She was a mess all week. Luckily the parents were there to help when they could. Tuesday was the only day neither of them were home but she wasn't so bad yet. Wednesday Kris wa home all day so I had some time off while E was at a friends. Then I took him to lunch and the Children's Museum. We had a great time. Thursday and Friday I had help part of the time. I'm just glad I didn't get sick. I really hope she is better tomorrow.

Friday night I did some Christmas shopping for Rob. Then I had to babysit for A2. I really need to come up with nicknames or something. I also babysat her on Saturday night too. I really do enjoy babysitting her. She is a lot of fun and the parents are great. They also even gave me a Christmas card and a gift card to Target. That was really nice of them considering I've only babysat like three times and once was really for like a half hour.

After I left there, I went to Jackie's. I'm so happy because I haven't seen her in forever. I miss spending weekends with her. When I lived with my one nanny family, I was there all the time because I hated hiding in my room all weekend. Anyway, we drank some margaritas and baked Christmas cookies. Today we went to the mall which was crazy busy but still fun. I went in a two story target for the first time. They had a special cart escalator. Yes, I am easily amused/entertained. Anyway, Jackie is student teaching not far from where I work this coming semester so we are going to plan on meeting up one Friday a month. I'm excited about. I think I need to spend more time with friends. I think it will be good for my stress level.

Well, it is now after 10 and typing this on my phone has not been fun tonight so I think I need to end this.

Three days of work and then I'm off for a week and a half!!
