What A Week!

Well, it has been quite the busy week. Last weekend I went to a wonderful retreat with my mother-in-law called Women of Faith. It was awesome. I laughed, I cried, I refreshed.

Monday went fast and furious at work as everyone asked how my weekend went. Then hell broke loose and I spent the rest of my week at work going insane trying to keep my head above water. It was a challange. I didn't do very well.

By Tuesday I was dizzy from all the spinning around keeping up. I was weary. I had committed myself to helping out with the Christmas event at church this year and was feeling down about it. So busy. Why am I volunteering all over the place when I'm so busy??? However, we got down and dirty and most of the event is already planned. If it keeps going this easy we'll have an awesome event.

I don't really remember Wednesday or Thursday. No wait, that's a lie. Thursday was just yesterday. Mike and I had the inlaws watch the kids after school. We went out to dinner and celebrated our anniversary a whole week and a half late. However, dinner was good and we had fun together. The kids stayed the night there so we could get some sleep and get up early for this morning. Mike had his "appointment" today.

After that this morning I got to work in time to put out a few fires and do my best to remember what I had been doing this week. UGH. So wildly busy. I was excited by all the things going on but as I'm still learning I seem to also trip a bit here and there.

This afternoon I got the kids home, dishes done, laundry switched and I'm exhausted. So much I could be doing but I do not have the energy to do anything else than this blog. We still have Halloween this weekend! I know it's going to be great and I cannot wait to post pictures :) I just hope we get some sleep here and there. I could use it!!! If it hadn't been for last weekend's retreat I'm sure I would have lost it this week. I'm thankful for the time I had or I would have been a mess this week. Sometimes you just need a brain break.

Bluey Monday

I had a rough Monday.

Someone broke into my car, took my diaperbag and a purse of mine (lucky it was empty). Then, after finding it didn't have any money or ID they tossed it all over the road. Like trash.

I seriously hate how some people have no care or concern for others. It's like they're missing that piece of their humanity. Someone should slap their mammas for raising them so poorly.

Slap. Their. Mammas

In other news, I'll be taking another 6 weeks off from school. Lots of time to do some more Etsy stuff right? Lets hope that is what happens.

Perfect Saturday Afternoon

I am sitting here on the perfect Saturday afternoon watching my son color with sidewalk chalk as I sit in the front yard with the baby laying on a blanket at my side...beautiful weather for October! Could not be more relaxing!

Can You Help?

I have a very small following on here but I thought I'd still ask for some help for a family in need.

I have a friend who just lost her nephew and her brother's family could use some financial support. Now, if you've ever known someone who has lost a child you know the COMPLETE devistation that can occur. Add trying to figure out finances (hospital bills, funeral arrangements, and more) and you find yourself in a deep hole.

Please read my friend's blog, and if you are so compelled please make a small donation. Anything helps.

Thank you,

Sick - Blech.

Oh man, oh man. It’s just the beginning of the cold and flu season and here I am, sick. It’s nearly 1:30am and I can’t sleep. My nose is clogged, my head is pounding, and my body has the chills. I’m up sucking on a cough drop and praying that the Advil Cold and Sinus starts kicking in. I have zip, zero, nada sick time at work so that means no soup and blankets for Jessica. I’ve got to get through this.

I am especially upset because I have finally finished my finals for school and have a week off in between classes. This is great because normally there is no time in between and right now work doesn’t want to pay for my next class. It’s about financial statements and apparently in marketing there is no real reason to know that stuff. Which I understand, but I can’t afford a $2,000 class on my own either. YIKES. Wish me luck.

Yeah, so I finished finals and this will give me time to work on some fall orders and presents for people right??? Not if I’m sick! I have some awesome new patterns too which I will not be able to test out either. So, dear sickness, it is time to leave and find someone else (not in this household) because to be honest I do not have the time, sick leave, or money to deal with you.

I don’t think it cares.
