God's Has a Sense of Humor

First, let me preface this post with this: I love my boys!!
But...everyone that knows me knows what a girlie girl I am. As the years have gone by, and with the male additions to our family, I'll be the first to admit I'm becoming less of the "girlie girl" type. I figure it just takes too much effort and a booger picking boy really doesn't appreciate mommy's nice pedicure, as he stomps over toes to find his favorite Power Ranger. It's hard to transform Transformers with acrylic nails. A full face of make-up...melts after hours on the sidelines of youth sports games. Anyway, you get the point!
I've always wanted to have a daughter, in part because I thought it would be really fun. As I enter this next phase of parenting, I'm realizing that it isn't fun until they're older...when you see the real fruits of your labor. Right now it's hard work. But, I still think that a girl would be familiar, comfortable...someone that I could really relate to. However, I don't think that's in the cards for us. And just in case I need confirmation, over the last few years I've developed a bizarre allergy to a chemical in nail polish. Within a day after polishing my fingernails I get this hidious rash on my face and I can't get the smell of the fumes out of my nose. Oddly enough, polish on my toes isn't a problem. Insane!

It's Been a Long Time...

I guess the days of me posting daily and multiple times a day have been temporarily halted. What happened? Life.
I'm so glad to report that my hubby is still employed AND in town. We'll enjoy it while it lasts. While he was home he even re-organized our closet! Boy, does he know my love language.
My kiddos are as rambunctious as ever, with new jokes and their ever present and brutally honest, childlike sense of humor.
My house is finally clean...much thanks to the housekeepers for 2 hours and lots of elbow grease. Now if only I can muster the energy to get up from the keyboard and finish organizing the filing cabinet.

What a Humdinger!

This has been the most stressful, slow week in a long time! We started off the week with a parent teacher conference that I was sure would result in criminal charges being filed. Fortunately, it didn't. Since then there have been mounds of crap to handle. Gheesh, is there ever a break??
On top of all that I'm feeling very weird about some of the life lessons that I've learned recently. Some of these truths really should have stayed buried, so to speak. Now that they've been uncovered, I have to deal with them. Double gheesh.
Just thinking of all of the stuff I have to do for the upcoming week makes me want to crawl into a cave and hibernate.
