Writings of a teachermom, choosing to stay home with her kids, while loathing all domestic responsibilities! In late Aug. 2008, I was diagnosed with Triple Negative breast cancer. After surgery, chemo and radiation, I was given theall clear. However, in the late summer of 2008, I was diagnosed with a brain tumor, which metasticized to other areas.

Cold, dark evenings....ugh.

It's November here in Minnesota, and the temperatures are starting to drop. There might even be a little bit of the S-word next week...just flurries...but still the S-word.

That means less outdoor time with the kiddos, because, well, I don't do cold very well. And with my immune system down, the freezing air just exacerbates my cough and faucet of a nose.

But I found a bit of a solution to help take up those 2 to 3 hours between dinner and bedtime. On Comcast On Demand, if you go to the Kids section, there's a Kid's Fitness button. Tonight we did a little Kid's Tae Bo...which isn't easy! Try it out.

It takes up some time, the kids get some of their energy out, and you'll get a TON of laughs watching them....as long as they keep the kicks and punches to the air, and not on each other!

Great idea on the excercise - will have to see if your kid's on-demand channel does something similar.

I am not that fond of winter either.
