Too much to headline

 Hello blog! How i have missed you. I do think about you often and store things in my head to write, they just rarely make it to ya.

 Lately we have been working pretty much 10 hours a day. It's draining. That's the best way to describe it. I am lucky enough to be able to use an hour of vacation here and there as i wish. Today I used one of those hours. It's amazing to me how much smoother my life can be when I get out of work at 4pm. Tonight I was able to run to Old Navy after work, go get the kids, come home to dinner being ready, eat dinner, pack the kids up for a drive to Lowe's (where i purchased my new toy, a Dyson), stopped for slushies, come home, give baths, brush teeth, read a book and enjoy getting the kids to bed. No rush thru this, no saying no to some of the goofy moments the kids like to have. I would LOVE to be able to have this life everyday. Maybe someday, maybe?

Speaking of that drive to Lowe's..let me share a little "secret'" i heard this evening.
While pulling into our driveway, Riley says to me "Mom, I wanna tell you something but you cannot tell anybody. Just me" So of course my ears are ready and i say "ok honey, tell me"
"Brayden and Chloe are boyfriend and girlfriend! Isn't that amazing??" (these are 2 kids in Rileys high school preschool class) You know what i did..what any mom would do of course. Slowly got out of the car, ran to the side of the house and called my mom and good friend Becki to tell!! LOL The way she told me and just the fact that in PRESCHOOL, we're already talking about boyfriends and girlfriends. I am just very greatful that the secret didnt end with Brayden being Rileys boyfriend.

I dont have any new pics to post today because I recently had my hard drive crash on me, losing all of my pictures. I did get them retrieved, but I have not loaded them back on.

I will say goodnight for now, tomorrow brings another 10 hour day. Yipppeeee!!!

To Infinity and Beyond...or Bed??

Sunday thru Thursday this is to be MY bed. However, this is what i wake up to beside me pretty much every morning. Ayden, Buzz Lightyear English, and Buzz Lightyear German. He starts in his own bed, but usually by 3am he and his crew trail over, asked to be helped into bed and while half, maybe more than half still in dreamland we tuck Buzz English and Buzz German in between us and then i tuck ayden in and we all happily dream together. ;)
