I promised...

I promised my husband that I would take it easy today. It's hard, I have so much to do and so much I want to do. But I hurt my back, I'm not sure how exactly - pulling on kids, cleaning, falling down the stairs (oops!), who knows but it's annoying! So I'm sitting on the sofa watching a hoarding show with a heating pad on my back. Watching the show makes me want to get up and clean some more. I can't help but watch them, it's like a train wreck... I just can't turn away! I can't stand a feather from my pillow on the floor or toys all over the place. I'm an anti-hoarder! I know it's a sickness but I just don't understand how people can live like that.

The kids are doing well in school, we like all the teachers (good) and so far I think they are both being challenged and having fun. I've been back at the preschool for 2 week and it has helped me get back into a schedule. I have a challenge this year, a 3 year old that's going to give me a run for my money. I'm up for the challenge I just wish I was better equipped to help him. He let's me hug him and sits in my lap so I guess I'm doing something right. I love my job!! I don't do it for the money, I do it for the smiles, hugs and to know that I have been a special part of a child's life if only for a moment. Before I had kids I had a job that I thought I loved, it paid very well but now I know that to do what you love may not be the key to riches but it is the key to living an authentic life. Some days it's not easy and I think I should go back to work full time but then 3:00 o'clock rolls around and two little kids get off the bus and I know I'm doing what I'm supposed to be doing, no matter what the challenge.

I'm looking forward to attending our monthly Flea Market this weekend. Maybe I'll find some goodies!

Have a great week,

A new chapter

Last week we started something I have been dreading all summer. Both of my children are in school full-time.

There is no one to ride to the preschool with me, no one to say "Good Morning" to the YMCA patrons, no one to help me clock in and no one to help me clean up after the kids are gone. There is no one to eat lunch with, no one to pick up after, no one to ask what channel Spongebob is on and no one to give me kisses "just because".

There is no one to push in a baby stroller, no diapers to change, no bottles to warm, no one to pick up and carry to a nap.

No one to kick my belly, no one to see on an ultra sound and no one to share my body with.

But... there are 2 special people to welcome home, 2 lunches to make, 2 book bags to collect papers from and 2 kids who I miss terribly.

I cried the first 2 days of school (and yes, even now I'm crying) but I know that in one hour I will be yelling at 2 kids to stop fighting.

And all will be right with the world.

Back to a routine

School started Tuesday and I am trying to get us all back into a routine (something I must have in order to be sane!). I go back to work next week, hopefully by Monday I'll have my head on straight and can start blogging again every week.

Until then I leave you with this image.... Never leave yourself vulnerable to the little sister you have picked on for the last 3 months.

I believe she was saying "Swing, batter, batter, swing!" right before she hit him!!!

I hope all of your "first days back" went as well as ours - hopefully there weren't as many tears....
