Working on misc

Being a mom, I sometimes forget the most basic things. Like getting my legs in shape before venturing into the cold, windy, cold, numbing, cold, freezing slopes up in the mountains for skiing with the kids. Not to mention the snow-plowing (muscle-breaking, bending at the knees with the skis touching each other in the front, i.e. going slow on the slopes) one has to endure behind the little kids and hoping, no praying that I don't fall again for the 1000th time. And without a doubt, the pain and aches that follow. So I'm doing the neccessary exercies to try and combat that for the coming weeks of skiing. I love the view of white wonderland, the crisp, thin air that makes me appreciate sea-level even more, and my 2-piece ski-suit that allows me to go the bathroom easier than the old 1 piece suits of yester-year. Little things that count.
Sorry I haven't been posting much food lately, but the photos are sitting quietly in their room awaiting words to connect them to you. And I hope to get them soon. Why? Cause I have been busy investigating preschool options for next school year. It seem that some schools are set on seperating my kids into different classrooms, and as their mom, my heart and intuition tell me otherwise. So I am going to find further options about this matter. I am also looking into summer activities for the little ones, and it's tiring looking at so many options. Not forgetting that it's taxing on the pocketbook too. My dear gf K was right when she said it's cheaper having dogs. But I think kids are adorable too! Most days, they are.

Lastly, my spell check have not working, and I'm apologizing in advance if there's any spelling errors in my posts. Should do this when I'm more awake, but there's a problem with timing too.

Looking at that picture, I do miss skiing, just not the cold. BTW, my spell check is not working too, it has been for weeks, must be blogger.

Skiing scares me quite a bit since I've only veer done it once, as an adult. But it sounds like you enjoy it, so all the best getting your legs slope-ready. :-)

Choosing pre-schools is always a nightmare. There is no strong evidence about the benefits of separating siblings in class, it depends on so many factors, including the children's personality and the teacher, among other things. It's their first experience of 'school', so take your time to find the one that you feel most comfortable with.

all the best!

I have only 1 and it is already taxing on me. I spent most of the time making sure she is not up to any mischief or doing something that she is not allowed to ... it seems the older she gets, the lesser time I have for blogging or doing other things. Or maybe I'm just inefficient. :p

Happy Valentine's Day!

Hi beachlover,
Enjoy the humidity and heat in KL, cause the snow will still be here when you get back. :)
Glad to hear that it's a blogger problem and not just me. ;)

Hey C,
We should do a ski trip together! Yeah, it must be a blogger issue.

Hey Nora,
Skiing is fun, but I rather cozy up by the fire at the ski lodge these days. :)
And we are in sync with the preschool situation. Thank you!

Hi Dwiana,

Hi Cooking Ninja,
As moms, I think we can all use more hours in a day. :P And you are not inefficient at all!

Thanks! Back at you! :)

Hi Janice,
Haha! Thanks! I'll try not to do too much today. :)
