Consumnes River Preserve

My son and I woke-up early and went to Consumnes River Preserve in Elk Grove. We were gone for almost 3 hours. It was very cold, but warmed to about 48 degrees. I got a good work out and he enjoyed the outdoors!

Harajuku Lovers Handbags

My daughter and I went to Macy’s today looking for shoes and winter coats on clearance. The shoes my daughter liked were not on sale. The winter coats were on sale, and there was what I thought was a great selection, but she did not find anything she liked. Before we left empty handed we stopped by the the Harajuku Lovers display and saw some new handbags!

Ikea and Sacramento News 10 Event

My daughter and I went to the Ikea and Sacramento News 10 Event today. We had a wonderful time.

We learned some great organizational tips from Natalie Conrad and Kelli Wilson. They are both members of National Association of Professional Organizers.

    Back to School

    The first day back for the new semester!

    Everyone woke-up on time!

    We had a nice breakfast, lots of time for 4 girls to get ready and 1 boy to be reminded to brush his hair!

    Off to the college to get the oldest to her classes. Then the rest of us went to the bookstore and with our school work and worked on the weekly packets.

    We had some hot chocolate while we did our work. Alex was bored and I told him I will bring the lap top next time. He is doing economics on Tuesdays and Thursdays only. Monday/Wednesday/Friday is the crazy days.

    Then we went back to the college and took Alex to see his special ed reading class that starts tomorrow. So how does he read for his economics work? He does it with Amanda. She reads the sections to him and he either answers orally or he writes short sentences.

    We all headed over to Alisha’s last class and waited for her. Then we piled in to the van and went home.

    No Jury Duty

    I called the number twice to see if my son was needed for jury duty. The first time I called and the after going through the phone prompts, was instructed to call back the next day.

    Called back the next day. I went through the phone prompts again and the recording said that group would not be needed.

    I am sure they will send another letter next year. We will cross that bridge when we come to it.

    Here is a pretty picture
