not sure...

I am not sure if I can keep going at the rate that I've been going. Today I worked then I needed to run some errands. I needed to make some returns to Old Navy and Kohl's. When I was leaving Kohl's, the headache that I had pretty much all day long, started to get worse. By the time I was less than a mile from home, it was a full blown migraine. ARG. I climbed into bed and pulled the quilt over my head. Brian made the mistake of pulling the quilt down and got yelled at. Finally about 9pm my head was starting to feel better. Now it is down to just a lingering headache.

So, K has been gone since Sunday and I've basically gotten nothing done. Tomorrow is another school day. As soon as I get done at school, I need to run up and get my tire fixed and my oil changed. I had this tire repaired like two weeks ago it it went flat again the same day. I should have taken it back up there the same day, but I just haven't had the time. Brian wants me to get it done before we leave town on Friday. Tomorrow night is also bunco. So, I am going to come home after getting the stuff done on the truck and hopefully get a couple loads of laundry done and some other things.

I just don't know if I can keep going at this pace anymore. I'm about to drop. I can count on one hand how many times I've cooked an actual meal for my family this month. That's not good. I've got to slow down. I've got to learn to say no. And I've got to remember that I can not do everything, no do I NEED to do everything! I think I realized how bad it has gotten when I started crying over the Disney trip and the plans. Changes are going to have to be made.
Enough of my whining....I hate that I've posted without photos. This one is of K at the Zoo last month. This photo was to prove that she DID feed the birds and wasn't scared. The last time i took her in there, she poured the nectar out on the group and was ready to leave. She did get a little tense when there was a bird on my head. But she quickly got over it when she realized I wasn't freaking out. Once it finally stop raining, maybe we will head to the Zoo again. Best to get the use of our membership!
Okay, I am headed to bed.
Blog ya later!

Lots going on. Not a lot of time to post. No photos this time. I am trying to get back into the habit of blogging, but honestly, it's HARD!

Today has been a little hard for me. I got some news that literally knocked me for a loop. I read the email twice and just busted out crying. My friend...if you are reading this, you know who you are......Brian and I are thinking of you. I am here if you need me for anything.

K is out of town at my inlaws in Michigan. The most awesome husband in the world bought tickets for us to see a Michigan game at the Big House. Can I just tell you...I AM SO FREAKIN' EXCITED????? We are headed for Michigan on Friday around lunch time. We will head to the game at noon on Saturday. After the game is over, we will head to my inlaws to pick up our baby girl. Spend Saturday night there and then head home!

This week is CRAZY busy. I had some things I wanted to accomplish today. The list was a lot longer than the two things I actually completed. I got a flu shot and I returned some books to the library. I really needed to work on the lesson plan for October, but I just didn't get a chance to. I am planning on completing that tomorrow.....along with a million and one other things that HAVE to be done.

Brian and I will be celebrating our 10th anniversary on the 2nd of October. We will be leaving for Disney on the 3rd. A week of fun. Let me just tell you...I have a LOT of anxiety about this trip right now because other than having our room booked and our tickets paid for, we only have reservations for one thing an that is a Princess luncheon. That's it. We have no schedule made out. No reservations to dine anywhere. I'm starting to STRESS.

Okay...I am off to bed. I've got to get some sleep so I can get up at a decent out and plan some sore of assult on the day. Not to mention, I get to spend 5 hours with nine 4 year olds tomorrow. Normally it would be 10, but my child won't be there.


blog ya later!

My poor, neglected blog....

there are just not enough hours in the day it seems. This is my one week off from school and what do I do? I cram it full of things that need to be done. I did have a change of schedule, so Wednesday I am planning on staying home and finishing a couple of things. Monday I worked at the school. Then Miss K and I met some friends at McD's for a late afternoon playdate. Then I hit up this awesome new place in town, Sips & Strokes with Jade and Becky from my mom's group. We had an awesome time. Check out my masterpiece!'s not a masterpiece, but it matches K's bedroom decor and will hang on her bedroom wall. She thought it was pretty cute. Tuesday was another day spent at the school. We got a LOT done. The room is completely painted...trim and all. I need to get the stuff hung back up on the walls still. I need to to my bulletin board in my room and come up with something for my classroom door as well. I REALLY need to get my lesson plans done for the month so that I can get my supply list done and to the director so she can buy all my goodies. Thursday and Friday are both busy as well. I'm glad that it's a 3 day weekend, but we do have a party to go to on Saturday and one on Sunday. Seriously...before K was born, I was NEVER this busy.

I'm looking at the time and I can not believe how late it already is! I want to go to bed, but I have GOT to work on my lesson plan. Why do I do this to myself????? I can work on it first thing in the morning when I get up because I don't think we are going to the PTS until later in the afternoon.
ARG! I just looked at the Sips & Strokes calendar and there is a painting I want to do at the end of the month. LikeI don't have enough stuff going on in my busy life. And I just remembered that I need to schedule a GNO for next week to go to Bonefish. Where is my calendar? At the rate I am going, I am going to need to go see Keeley early to cover up all this grey that's popping up! I'm off!
Blog ya later. (and I promise it won't be boring stuff!)
