Here's a photo of my dog and I having fun in the snow:
Before going out to play in the snow this afternoon though, I did a thorough cleaning of my bedroom. My husband was sick for the past day and a half with a nasty stomach virus. I slept in the living room on the sofa for the past two nights because I do not want to get sick. So, I laundered the sheets, pillow cases, covers and bedspread. I cleaned the 1/2 bathroom that is in our bedroom thoroughly as well. As I did this, I had both windows open to air out the room. it was refreshing to get the bedroom cleaned up and I am looking forward to sleeping in bed tonight! (My husband is feeling better; I think it was one of those 24 hour stomach viruses).
I haven't had much time online so far today, but I just checked on my Facebook NewsFeed and saw something interesting. There's a site called Swagbucks.com and today is the site's 2nd birthday. Basically it's a search bar that you download and you periodically earn Swag bucks for your searches. You can then trade your Swag Bucks for gift certificates and products from the Swag Store. If you sign up today you can receive 60 free Swag Bucks. Use the code BABYGOODBUYS2 (case sensitive) when you sign up (there's a box at the bottom of the sign up form for this code). The above code is only good through March 4, 2010, so make sure you sign up right away! Here is a great link: Maximizing Your Swag Bucks I signed up today and hope we can share codes here on my blog to maximize our Swag Bucks together! Have fun everyone!

So far I've taken my 1st grader to school, washed 1 load of laundry, 2nd load in now and 1st load in the dryer. I worked out on the elliptical for 20 minutes and am now taking an 'internet break' while watching "The View". I just saw that stupid commercial Turn The Tub Around with Megan Mullally. Why did she agree to do this ad campaign? (other than money?) I'm just disappointed in her for doing the ads because she is a talented lady!
Trying to get all those 'little things' that are lying around and not being used that I was 'saving for something', out of the way. One example is the two left over diaper wipe containers that I know I'll be able to use, just not sure for what at the moment. In case you're wondering how you can reuse your diaper wipe containers, here is an awesome list: 50 Uses for Those Rectangular Baby Wipes Containers!
I'm also trying to minimize the number of bookmarks I have and put the ones I want to keep in some kind of order. I have a bad habit of just dragging things I want to look at later to the bookmarks bar I use for Foxmarks without tagging them or putting them in a proper folder. I think I will work on this little project for a set amount fo hours per week because the bookmarks are a jumbled mess.
I've got a headache right now and am waiting to get a shower, put the kids to bed and then maybe watch some TV with my husband. I need some good sleep tonight too...because last night I didn't sleep well enough to feel rested.

I'm sure along the way I will expand into other areas, but for now that is the direction of my blog,All Around The Circle, has taken.My daughters are 10 and 6 (4th Grade & Afternoon Kindergarten.) I am so looking forward to no more of the1/2 day Kindergarten schedule because it leaves very little time for me to do anything.
