So it's been a few days since my last post and I still have blogging on my mind. Funny thing is, there is nothing crazy exciting or unusual going on that makes me think hey, the works needs to know this. And we aren't (as a family or me as a person) that interesting either. Just busy. Today I drove 45 minutes away while the kids were at school to a nursery and came home. Then I did something so sad. I watched a little series on YouTube, called Last Days I think. It's basically interviews of people who have terminal illnesses and about, well...their last days. Terribly sad. Enlightening. Humbling. Perspective. So then I picked up my kids and snuggled with them as best I could before they ran outside to play with friends. I am very thankful for my handfuls. We did homework and dinner. Now the house is quite as Matt and I read/blog to the sound of the rain outside. Boring. Maybe? But I love my life. I am homebody and there is no where else I'd rather be. Except maybe the beach. Maybe. :) Disclaimer: this was typed from my phone. I'll find the errors tomorrow.

A day in the life. Wake-up at 6:50, hit snooze, wake up at 6:59. Get up at 7am. Turn on the lights, put the kids clothes on their pillows so they can't say they can't find their clothes. Make my bed, brush my teeth. Roll-call, for the 4/5th time to get them to the bathroom. Threaten to not fix the girls hair. Get the boy downstairs because he is ready in 5. Throw on something, get the girls done,get them downstairs to start their breakfast and I put on some make-up. Get downstairs, help them finish breakfast. Get lunches made, agenda's and folder's in backpacks, coats, shoes, and anything else they need. Grab my preschool bag and leave the house at 8:05. Then 2 car lines until 8:25 then head to my preschool. Unless someone has forgotten something. In that case, run back home and to the respective school to drop off.Then go to work. Work until 1:15-ish. Go home. Start laundry, make other beds, clean up after breakfast, make phone calls, check emails, peruse FB/Pinterst, check the real mail, think about dinner or nix all that and go to Publix. 2:50 head to car lines. 3:35 get home. Pull out homework, think about dinner again. Get ready for practices, etc. Start dinner at 4, flash cards, reading, etc. for the kids. Eat at 5, divide and conquer and head out to respective activities for the kids. Hopefully home by 7, shower the kids, pick up their "dirties" and realize I forgot to change over the load from earlier. Do that. Start another load. Get the kids in bed, head downstairs to clean up after dinner. Fold the laundry from earlier or at least think about it.Shower. Lay down. Get up to turn off something, whether it's a light or a toy. Pray. Sleep. :)
Busy Bees we are! Wow, what a year. Me working, all the kids in school, all of their activities. It seems like there is ZERO time to blog. Of course, I find time to check FB and Pinterest. It has been an amazing school year, both girls cheered and Wy played football. Sadie is still in piano and been diagnosed with ADD. We made it through the holidays and have just started Spring ball. Audrey won Little Miss Buford and now we just have to round out the rest of the year and make it to my all time favorite part of the year...SUMMER. Can't wait for family and beach time. Although family time means a bit more this summer since we will head home to OK for a bit since my dad has been diagnosed with cancer. There...there is where my year has gone.
