What a week!

It's only Tuesday and I'm tired already. Monday was very busy. I had to work of course and then rush home to get the boys and go get a haircut. Then it was home to make dinner and the off to PTO night at school. Thank goodness grandma came and stayed with Daniel. Cody chose to work 12 hours yesterday so he wasn't home until 8:00 pm!

At work I am interviewing candidates for a position. It's been really hard because the person who vacated that position was a wonderful man. He had a sudden massive heart attack and died :-(. I miss him so much. The candidates for his job have been ok. We had called two in for interviews this week. One is good but we have some reservations. The other emailed me today and withdrew because he accepted another position. So now I'm stuck with settling for the one that we like but aren't sure about or opening the job up for the 3rd time! ugh!

My mom

Today is my mom's 75th birthday! I can't believe it! To me she doesn't look or act 75. I guess it's just a number anyway. She is my best friend. She drives me crazy sometimes too but that's ok! I love her so much and thank her for raising me in a wonderful loving Christian home. She and daddy have been married for 55 years and have been great examples to me and my brothers!


This is me and my mom last year at Christmas.

4:30 am is too early!

Daniel decided that 4:30 this morning was a good time to wake up crying. I have no idea what his problem was. I took him downstairs and all he wanted was TV and milk. He didn't seem sick so that was good. I guess he just decided to get up. I get up around 5:15 anyway so I just got ready for work. On a good note, I was early today! Hopefully this is a one time deal. My boys are great sleepers and I don't want that to change!

I'm sure I will want a nap by lunchtime. I need coffee now!!

Have a great day!!

It's been a while...

The holidays were so packed with stuff I had no time to get on the computer much less keep my blog updated. Hopefully I can do better now that things are back to a normal routine. Today is my first day back at work after two weeks! Ask me if I wanted to get up this morning at 5:15! No!! Austin is back at school and Daniel is back to Pam's.

We had a wonderful Christmas. The boys got way too much stuff! We also had a big birthday this week! My Austin turned 8 on Sunday! I can't believe he is 8 years old already! He was just a baby the other day. He opted to have a friend come over instead of a party. That was fine with me. We did have his grandparents come by on Sunday for a little party. He got lots of money and is ready to go shopping! I have to say my first experience with the "sleep over" was a good one. The boys were great and didn't give us any trouble!

Daniel has been a sweetie all through the holidays! He has really stared talking up a storm! He can say anything and you can pretty much understand it now.

Cody and I are great! We didn't want to go back to work today but I guess Christmas break couldn't last forever. With our weird Jan. weather, he and Austin got to do some fishing. (it's supposed to be 70 today) He had some bad luck one day last week and lost a trailer tire on his way back from fishing. Fortunately he has two tires on each side so he and Austin didn't wreck or anything. He looked and looked for the tire but can't find it. Hopefully he can get a replacement today. Poor guy!

Ok. That's an update and I promise to do better this year!

I can't believe my husband will be 40 tomorrow!

I love giving him a hard time about it. I know it's not old but it's fun to tell him it is! I haven't really planned anything mean. I may get him some gag gifts and put some ballons on the mailbox. He didn't want a party. I will be making him his favorite coconut cake and I'm sure we will take him out to dinner. He's a wonderful husband and great father! I'm very lucky to have him in my life!

Sometimes Toddlers suprise you...

We went out to dinner for my birthday last night. Daniel was his usual self and cried about putting his shoes on. Didn't want to be buckled in the car seat, etc. I figued we were in for it but we got to the resturant and he was so good! He sat in the booth with me and ate and colored. I was amazed! Maybe it's a trend and he will be good from now on?? I won't hold my breath. It's really had to tell with 2 year olds. One minute they are pitching a huge fit and the next they are sweet and loving. You just never know.

It's my birthday!

It's been great! It actually started Friday when my two best friends kidnapped me and took me to Olive Garden to lunch. They had cleared it with my boss and I had the afternoon off! We got manicures and pedicures. It was great!! Today my friend, Joan (also in on the Friday thing), brought cake! My parents came and took me out to lunch also! Now I can't wait to see what my boys have lined up for tonight! Getting older stinks but I like the fun stuff that goes with it!
