...Two kids are twice as much work.
I hate that I've neglected to blog, but I've been too busy doing the things I want to talk about. That's a good problem to have as far as problems go. The blog has fallen a few rungs on the priority ladder. There is always something else I need to be doing. Right now what I should be doing is showering or napping since The Mister is in la la land. But alas, my daughter does not want to sleep unless she is within 12 inches of my person. Pretty sure the shower water would wake her right up. Oh, and have I mentioned that she loves to party while her big bro is napping?
Here are some things that went on this week:
-I felt so bad that all of your comments on my last post were longer than the post itself.
-We decided to do Disney! Curt's mom is coming with us. I am really excited and Curt is SUPER EXCITED. We are going in the beginning of May. I know it will be hot, but Orlando and Houston have similar climates, so we won't be in shock over it. Also, Jackson only got harder to take places the older he got, so we feel like we have a small window of opportunity with Annabeth unless we wait quite a while. Next summer is not an option because I AM GETTING AWAY WITH MY MAN AND THE CHILDREN ARE NOT COMING. Not that I have strong feelings about that or anything.
-I've tried really hard to catch up on my personal emails. Speaking of that, I finally got a new cell phone number. If we're homies, please email me if you don't have it yet. What? Are you making fun of me for saying homies? I will not apologize for being a child of the nineties.
-We had "Backwoods Bunco" on Monday night at Christine's parents house. Christine and her hubby recently moved into the depths of East Texas, which should explain our theme. We played in honor of Kristi Walker, who was dearly loved by everyone in our group. In fact, she had lived in the home we played in for a season. Instead of buying bunco gifts with our monthly dues, the money will be sent to Chuck and his family. I'm sure it will just be a drop in the bucket, but hopefully a lot of drops are coming into the bucket! There were lots of sweet memories shared about Kristi and a stack of pictures that were very bittersweet to look at.
-Thankfully, there's been no more school drama for Jackson.
-My parents kept Annabeth so I could attend Wednesday night church with the boys. That was an awesome night that needs its own post. We enjoyed getting to focus on just the Mister for a while. He has been uncharacteristically snuggly with me since then. I'll take it!
-Kay and Judah came over yesterday while the big brothers were at school. We had such a great visit and even finished our conversations. Imagine that!
-Annabeth went with me to the grocery store for the first time. I covered her carrier with a blanket and stuck it in the basket. But then I had almost zero room for the food! My list was dramatically shortened.
-She's also been doing five and a half hour stretches at night. Praise the Lord. I am still really tired though. I've never appreciated my morning tea more than I do now. When Jackson wakes up, he is 100% full on, so caffeine is a must.
-Melissa and Colin are in town this weekend. Yeah!
That's all for now. Happy Friday, peeps!
