No fun today.

Another rainy cold day in Warsaw. I'm exhausted. I was late picking Toby up from his school and then I was late getting home to the Dell repair guy. Apparently he fixed the computer though.

Nothing really new to report. Seth loves school, Toby loves school and Blaise likes my jiggly belly so he doesn't want me to go to the gym...That's causing me to get really bummed out.

I'll be out of commission for a few days but I should be back to blogging by next Wednesday...hopefully in a much better mood.

Rainy and cold in Warsaw...'s so cold in the house even. It was 49 degrees out the last time I checked and it's only September. Well, it's still better than Ghana.

Anyway, while I should be waking the two little ones and taking them to go pick Seth up, I'm blogging instead. Not that I really have anything to say.

I went to the gym for the first time since Houston (of course, I had my little home gym for the whole two years in Ghana, but there's something I like more about being in a place with other people who are also trying to get or stay in shape-even if we never talk since we have a language barrier). Since my gym is in the same parking lot as a large hipermarket here I was going to stop in and pick up a few items and Dylan's dry cleaning, but some man knocked on my window and asked me to roll the window down. I shook my head and drove away. Now I may be paranoid (remember I still have not let the mugging of 2 years ago go - not entirely anyway) but I couldn't even bring myself to stop and get out knowing that this man was still standing in the parking lot. I hope I didn't run over his foot or something...

Okay, I'll go wake two sleepy boys and we'll drag ourselves out into the cold Warsaw day and fetch Seth. Who still loves school. Toby is liking it better...they had music class today and Toby is our total lover of music. He sings ALL THE TIME. Blaise hated the gym and the girl there is not patient at all. Apparently less than 10 minutes of crying and that's enough for her. I get it, but my kids cry for AT LEAST 30 minutes when they are left...I don't know that the gym thing is going to work out (lol...punny).

Added Bonus

Here's a picture of Blaise with his first haircut. I cut it yesterday and now he doesn't look so much like a girl. He's still got those long eyelashes though, which is one of the things that confuse people the most. But he's adorable too...and I am not at all biased:).

Toby's first day

So, Toby hates his school. I have to say, I'm a little bit with him because it seems so unorganized, but I guess that's no reason to dislike it. He screamed yesterday when we dropped him off and today he hung on to my leg so that I wouldn't leave. I couldn't bring myself to go to the gym today because I couldn't bear dropping Blaise off and going through the same thing in the same day. I think I'll be able to go tomorrow because it actually does seem to get better each day.

On the other hand, Seth LOVES his school. I thought Seth would have a hard time, and he hid under the table for the first 15 minutes of class, but then Pani Iza was able to coax him out and he's been fine ever since. He loves Nicholas and Ava. I think Ava has a little crush on Seth. And who could blame her? He's adorable;).

Pamela is on her 8th grade team building trip this week. I love that my 8th grader still calls me each night to tell me how she's doing. There's something about "large" families that actually makes them miss each other tremendously when they're not together.
