I have to admit, I like to procrastinate.  I have a certification exam tomorrow and rather than studying, I'm doing everything possible to avoid studying. I've played on my Facebook, checked out my email, built lego ships with Linden and now updating a blog, that quite honestly, I've ignored for months on end until now. My exam is tomorrow morning, but might be changed as the invigilator wants to take tomorrow off.  The great thing about working for a post-secondary institution is that you get flexibility.  Then again, there's no due date for when this exam has to be written, another reason for my own personal delay.

 My birthday has come and gone (happy belated birthday to me!) and we celebrated quietly. Instead of going out for dinner, we bought sushi and cake and stayed at home. The kids were disappointed that we didn't eat out but trying to keep 3 kids corralled at a restaurant dinner table felt like too much work for a birthday dinner!

Well, I guess I should study.  It's a gloriously sunny day so I might even go for a walk rather than study.  Surprise, surprise.

One of the most frustrating things about trying to not get sick is getting sick. There has been a nasty cold doing its rounds at school and work. Everyone has taken time off at work, the kids have been knocked down with it and finally, I've been taken out.  I take my vitamin C, echinacea and whatever  other possible anti-cold remedy is out there.  Turns out that it doesn't work.  I might as well go lick a dirty shopping cart handle and get the cold over and done with.

I've been on Ravelry since July and have posted whatever FO's I have on there.  Seems easier on there but after hearing about kids pictures being stolen off of Flckr and being used for other means, I'm careful what I post of the kids, if anything.

 What can I say? It's been busy.  The family is doing well, I'm keeping busy and of course, I'm still knitting. The kids are doing great in school, Linden is talking non stop and we're doing the usual family things.  I've taken judo up again and have been working hard, along with Cole, on perfecting my form.  Cole thinks it's great that his mom is out there fighting with him.  Our princess (Kass) is with us as well, but she claims she's afraid of getting hurt.  She spends most of her time chasing after her friend.  Hopefully that changes soon! 

Off to bed...it's late and I need to get to sleep.  Just to say that I'm still around...
