So, we're getting his tonsils and adenoids out on 2/16. Hopefully after that I can get back to other things.

Well, today's tackle isn't a very interesting one, no pretty pictures either. We have been all over the place since Christmas. If you read last week's tackle, you know that right after Christmas we started prepping for my son's 5th birthday party, well that's now over and since last week was hectic between my DH's car being in the shop Monday & Tuesday, my son's doctor's appointment on Friday and finding homes for all our new toys, I'm spending this week getting caught up and back on schedule. I'm starting with laundry and putting all the dishes/cake decorating stuff away from the party. I finally changed my dishes from Christmas to regular again. So next week, I will have a real tackle with pictures and all, though I'm not sure what it will be yet.
So, this is what I'm doing this week, let us know what you are doing and check out what other Mom's are doing at 5 Minutes for Mom .
And don't forget to celebrate the inauguration of our newest President.

Anyway, we have been going through a lot of doctor visits since my son's visit to the ER in November for an asthma attack. We've been to an allergist, his pediatrician (for the asthma follow-up, a cold he got in December and his annual check up), and now an ENT. The allergist put him on Flonase when we mentioned his waking up tired and that improved it a little, but not 100% so they sent us for a neck xray to check for his adenoids. Turns out his adenoids are ok but his tonsils are enlarged, I'm not really sure why the doctors couldn't see that sooner. So this Thursday we are going to an ENT, he will probably be getting his tonsils out since he has sleep disturbance. I'm nervous about this, and I know it's silly, but I am.
I just wish I could get him back on a normal sleep schedule. He does usually do this either right before or after he has a growth spurt, and he's due - he always sprouts up right after his physical.

This is one of my son's miniature ornaments on his stocking. I like how the knit pattern of the stocking isn't crisp so the ornament is definitely the focal point.
This is one of my knitting projects, I like how it shows the detail of the knit.
This is some candy canes, it didn't really do what I wanted, I wanted it to focus on the colored candy cane, but because they were all so close together, they all wound up in focus.

Well, my son's 5th birthday is coming up next Thursday (the 15th), and we are having a small party for him here on Sunday. So my tackle, once again without pictures, is to clean the house put away all our Christmas decorations and find homes for the ton of toys he got for Christmas. OK, so I haven't really tackled all of that yet but it's my project for the week, so I will post some pictures during the week.
What I have accomplished is making phone calls for everything I needed to do, portrait appointment, get his allergist to call in a refill on his Asthma inhaler that he uses daily, call my husband's grandmother since we haven't seen her for Christmas yet, make his yearly doctor appointment and call same doctor to get a referral for his allergist appointment on Thursday.
I also made my New Year's Resolutions and have actually started on them. We got a Wii from my parents for Christmas and I bought Wii Fit/Balance Board with my birthday money so I've been doing the different activities on that mostly every day, I can tell you that if you are as out of shape as I am, these activities will kick your butt. I try to do at least 30 minutes per day of the different activities on Wii Fit and I'm doing pretty ok with it, I need to make sure I do it on the weekends too to keep getting better.
So this is what I have/am tackling this week, let us know what you are tackling and then head on over to 5 Minutes for Mom to see what other bloggers are tackling.

Anyway, I decided to make New Year's Resolutions this year, I don't usually do this, but I figured I need to make some kind of declaration on the changes I want to make in my life.
These are the resolutions I made:
1. To weigh less at the beginning of each month than I did the month before.
2. Lessen clutter by at least 25%
3. Blog 3-5 days per week consistently (so the few readers I do have will have more drivel to read)
4. Make a healthy dinner every night for the whole family (I know this one sounds weird as I'm a SAHM, but I'm a vegetarian, my son and husband aren't so we've kind of been eating separate meals, but this year I'm going to change that).
I will update monthly on my progress if anyone cares to read about it, but by doing that I have to make progress.
Have a happy, healthy new year!
