Well here we are again. Another week and more work piled on the desk and tons of places to run around to...do you ever get tired of the everyday grind of life? I am so tired that I can't hardly stand it this week. I haven't gone to bed before midnight in like 5 days and I have nothing to show for it. My house is a mess, the laundry isn't done and the stupid dogs got in the trash AGAIN. Brent has been working a lot and I miss him like crazy. I think that's why this week has been so difficult. When we don't see each other a lot we tend to bicker at one another more often. My life doesn't work well when him and I are on different wave lengths. But on a brighter note, we don't have any kids this week end, so we have planned not to leave one another's side if we don't have to...I am looking forward to it. I think it will be just what the doctor ordered for us. I just wish that we could slow down, I feel like we are always running and I'm not dealing with it as well as I had hoped.
On another note, Gracie's birthday party went well. I think everyone had a good time and it was nice. Gracie's Daddy and his wife came...I was nervous about that, because she isn't always the nicest to me, but it turned out pretty good. We have even made tentative plans to go and do karaoke together one night. I think it might be a good way to break the ice and all of us can come to a better understanding of one another and hopefully have a better relationship because of it. So even though it's a little out of my comfort zone, I am embracing this as an opportunity to make life better and not harder. I'll let you know how it turns out...
All of the kids are doing great. Jordan had the kindergarten program at school last week and I was SO proud of him. He actually got up there and sang and did the motions and all. He saw me standing to the side and was smiling ear to ear and waving at me like, "Look at me Mommy!!" It was AMAZING! It was really what I needed this week. Gracie and Jordan are leaving in the morning with Mimi and Giddu to go to Michigan to see snow. They are so excited and I am excited for them! I only wish that I could go with them too, but I know that they will have a blast! Gabby and Ally are getting ready for the FCAT at school and starting soccer soon too. Ethan is starting this year too...it's his first year. I am REALLY excited for this season to start! I LOVE going to their games and watching them run around and waving at us and all. It's so funny. I love that Brent and I have the same mentality about our kids and sports too...we both like to be there cheering as loudly as we can!! I love that! I love the family days. Also, it's about to be Girl Scout cookie time, so slowing down isn't going to happen anytime soon. But it's OK, it's going to be great!
Brent's parents and sister and 4 nephews are coming in July...I am excited about that too! I am trying to get my house in order before they get here. We have been together 3 years in March and I have never met them face to face. I want to make a really good impression, so I am working on the house and finding new meals to cook while they are here and everything. Well, I think that's about it for today...now you see why I named my blog crazy life...love you guys!
