Sunday: Got up and fed the kids. Didn't do too much else to start the day. Joe went to work. I hung around. Fed the kids some lunch. Put CJ down for a nap. Then I figured I had better do some baking. So I started on some of my cookies. Joe came home from work. We figured out something for dinner. Ate. I baked some more. Gave CJ a bath. Sent the girls for a shower. Put the kids to bed. Then I baked some more. Watched a little TV. Went and took a shower and then went to bed.

Monday: Got up early. Got the kids ready for school. Took them to school and waited around for someone to pick up their fundraiser. They did not show. Came back home. Got Joe and we went to the bank and then to do some shopping. We got some paint for our new apartment and a few other things. Went to Walmart and got a few Christmas gifts. The Job Lots to get some platters for my cookie trays. Then to the dollar store and got some stocking stuffers and finally to the grocery store to get a few things I ran out of for my baking. Then we had gotten a call from the FRC that there was some stuff for us there that we needed to pick up so we went to the school to get that. Came home and put everything away and put CJ down for a nap. Then I went back to the school to pick up the girls and hand out another fundraiser. I stood around chatting with some friends. Good thing too because the person for the fundraiser was about 20 minutes late. Gave him the fundraiser and then went home. Helped the kids with homework and started on my baking. Got dinner on the table and as we were eating Joe discovered that one of the gerbils was missing. We found it under all of the bedding dead :(. Figured out who's it was. It was Natalie's, but Kaitlyn took it harder. We cleaned out the cage and put Lucky back in. The girls said goodbye to their gerbil and wanted to go get a new one. So we went to the pet store and did that. We have two gerbils again, but they don't get along so they are in separate cages. The kids got ready for bed and went to bed. I did more baking. I finally finished for the night and went to bed.

Tuesday: Got up really early. Joe was in work early and he was storming around for some reason. Usually he's much more considerate. So since I couldn't sleep anymore I got up. Did some stuff on the computer. Got the kids ready for school. Put dishes away. Cleaned out the fridge. Walked the girls to school. Came back home. Washed the dishes. Gave CJ something to eat. Started on my baking again. Took a break because he was into everything. Best to wait till he's sleeping. Fed him lunch and put him down for a nap and then I worked on my cookies. Joe came home from work and I continued working. Then I went to pick the girls up from school. Waited around for someone to pick up a fundraiser and she was a no show. So rushed home expecting to have to go meet our new landlord to sign the lease. He pushed back the time so I did more baking. Got a cookie finished before we had to leave. Went to the apartment, but he forgot the lease. Ugh, so we went to the store so I could get more flour and then back home where I continued to bake. Joe cooked dinner.
