What a crazy morning!
Quick breakfast
Forgotten homework
Car alarm won't go off
Slow moving kids
Hurry, hurry! Rush, rush!
Sometimes, I feel like I'm herding cattle!

For Now...

The sun is shining and everyone is happy! What better time to write. I'm getting the creative itch. Of course I'm behind on my scrapbooks, but I want to build a kitchen island. Sound like a major challenge??! I actually want to convert a piece of furniture. I began the search this week and feel that finding a suitable piece may be the hardest part. The base piece of furniture has to be sturdy enough to hold a granite top and have enough drawers/shelves to be functional. I'm excited about the challenge and know I'll be happy with the end result.

This week started off super busy and is winding down nicely. Today I did some birthday shopping and cleaned a wee bit. I also managed to squeeze in a 1 1/2 mile walk with my hubby. Whoa! My father in-law may be coming to town to celebrate his birthday so, that means I'll need to make a cake. We have a few other engagements, but I will definitely need to rest up for next week. We have a long time before summer break!

For now we're having a great day. I'm going to try to just enjoy this moment!

Tightly Wound

Spring Break is almost over and I'm left wondering, 'Where did the week go?' We took a mini-road trip over the weekend. The boys had a blast playing with cousins, hunting for eggs, flying kites...

Since we've been back I've spent most of my time catching up on all of the housework and cleaning that I had gotten so far behind on! I've heard so many people talking about their "big time" Spring Break trips/plans and I just wonder how are they taking care of business. My sister is convinced they're not! Either way, if I leave and go to the Bermuda Triangle (and manage to return) the dishes, laundry, dusting, etc. would be waiting for me!

Happy Birthday to Me!

My sister treated me to a 1 hour massage at a local spa. I've been to various spas and received a variety of services, but I must say this one rocks! I think everyone should go at least 3 times a year (definitely more often if your wallet can handle it). It's sad to have to pay for tranquility! But, hey...a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do.

So, here's a special shout out to my sister for starting off my birthday weekend right! I know she's not reading this, but what the heck! Thanks!

My family also gave me the handbag that I so desperately needed! I guess the only thing left to do on my big day is sit on my big bum! As my sister and I frequently joke...'on Le beaux chic'!

Yuck and Double Yuck

When I think of how "un-Christ"like I am, I get very discouraged. My fuse is very short and I would just rather not be around people...most of the time. I just cannot understand how God loves us all in spite of ourselves. I can only hope and pray for just a little bit of that grace and kindness.

Next weekend is my birthday and (as always) I'm very excited! I have no idea what I want to do to celebrate. Considering the fact we rarely spend time away from the kids, it will probably be a family celebration. Of course that's okay, but it would be nice to have some grown-up time. With the boys getting older, I'm wanting more frequent breaks. We're beyond the "baby" stage so, I think that's reasonable. Anyway...maybe in the near future we can start looking for a baby sitter and a housekeeper (if I can get over my fear of cross contamination).

Okay, enough rambling. My gang is leaving and I need to recharge my battery. I've got to go grocery shopping (yuck) and get ready for the week (double yuck).
