It's been quite some time since the last post. I actually just spent the last half hour resetting passwords and trying to log on (I couldn't remember usernames and passwords). So whats new in the Donchess house? Well first off... I kept the last name Donchess after the divorce was final. I went back and forth about that for a long time and ultimately decided that I wanted to have the same last name as my kids. The divorce was final on December 4th as planned, no suprises thank God.
The holidays were pretty hectic. I thought I would have had a hard time surviving my first holiday season as a single mom, but it went off without a hitch. Maybe it was that I didn't really have time to even think about it. There was about 5 days straight of non stop festivities. By far the best Christmas I've had, I'm sure that was because the kids had so much fun and were really into it. We spent New Years up north in Leetopia. I have some pretty funny pics from NYE but I doubt my family members would approve off putting those pics up for the world to see.
January is almost over and all I feel like I've done this whole month is take kids to the doctor and as a result missing quite a few days of work. Thankfully my job is very understanding and flexible. It all started January 2nd.... A trip to Marshfield Urgent Care. Aria decided to ring in the new year with a case of the croup. She is still coughing and I believe she is the reason that there was 3 cases of Bhronchitis, 2 of pnuemonia, and 1 walking pnuemonia at the daycare. I think she infected everyone. So that brings us to this week, guess who got pnuemonia??? Thats right---Stephen. I am seriously thinking I should take Aria back to the dr for a chest x-ray too. She shouldn't be coughing from croup still.
Aria is now in a big girl bed, and doing great. She made the switch much easier than Stephen ever did. Only a couple days of getting out of bed a few times and that was it. Piece of cake. Next step is potty training.
Thats all for now...Someone near me stinks :)
