Cabin Fever

So....today is Groundhog Day and of course, 6 more weeks of winter. I am not a fan of Winter at all~I am more a spring, summer, and fall kind of girl. Thankfully we are taking a road trip to Florida in just about 5 weeks. I cannot express how excited I am for this. The kids have never been anywhere before and I cannot wait to show them the ocean. Ahhh one week in Florida~if only March 12th would arrive I would be a happy girl. It's been crazy at home lately...especially since we cannot just go outside for a walk or to the park to get out. Chloe has been tripping over her own feet lately and this is something new. It is starting to concern me so if it keeps up then I may have to take her to Dr. Kathie to make sure she is ok. She has flat foot, which they do not treat anymore, and she has been fine but now is falling a lot. We'll see how it goes.

Well, I hear the kids calling my name~
Until next time...

Anxiety is a nasty thing

So my anxiety has been getting the best of me lately. I am not sure if this is just something a mother does, if it comes with age, or if it is all me. My anxiety isn't over everyday normal stuff like school, marriage, etc. No mine is over health, my health to be exact. I worry everytime something hurts me or I get sleepy out of nowhere. I am not quite sure why I do this to myself. I go to my doctor next week and hopefully he can confirm that it is in fact, all in my head. If for some reason it is not then I will deal with that when the time comes. I have spent most of my life worrying about things and when the time comes~it was worrying over nothing. Worrying gets me nowhere but ruining my days that could be spent doing other things. I just have to keep this scripture in my mind when I am having another anxiety attack. "Therefore, I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink;or about your body, what you will wear." Matthew 6:25

Hopefully this too will pass and I can get out of this slump I have been in lately. I need to start having a better outlook on 2010.

Time to play catch up...

So I have been out of the loop for the past few months with the holidays and everything. I am back in action. Speaking of holidays~I had a great holiday season. The best part of Christmas for me is not only the kids getting excited but also the reason for the season~God. I actually took time to slow down and remember the reason for Christmas in 2009 and it was nice.
Fast forward to January (present time)I am back for another semester of school to finish up my Paralegal Studies degree. I am about 9-10 classes away from completing this goal for myself. I feel a little anxiety creeping in as I am taking 3 classes this semester along with tending to the kids and maintaining the house. It will all payoff in the end I keep telling myself. I am still staying home with the kids currently but around mid summer I plan on looking for work. Chloe will be entering Kindergarten in the fall so me working will not interfere with her care during the day. She is growing too fast, but watching the kids grow is such a blessing.
I have a busy night ahead of me so until next time...

Long Weekend

Well it has been a few days, it was a long weekend-but good. Friday we were able to go to our friend's house for game night once again. We hadn't been in awhile due to hectic schedules over the summer with baseball, etc. We just get together and play board games with another couple while the kids get time to play with one another.

Saturday morning bright and early Logan had a soccer game, he played against his friend's team(which is his old team) and lost 5-1. He did have a good time though, that's all that matters, right? After the game we headed home to grab lunch and cleanup and then headed right back out for a double birthday party...Lazer Tag. The kids had a blast! I was so drained from the previous two days that we went straight home and I watched a movie with the girls while Logan headed to spend the night with his friend. We had another busy day ahead of us Sunday.

Farm Aid was a good time, it helped me understand the struggles of today's farmers more than I did before. I had no idea how much hard work is put into running a farm and I appreciate our farmer's a lot more now than before. I had a lot of fun spending time with my family as well. My parents were there along with my sister and my husband. It was a long but good day. I learned about organic milk, and it is actually pretty good. I just wish that eating healthy was more cost efficient than eating non-healthy food. Why is that? I think more people would eat healthier if prices to do so were lower. Anyway, just a thought.

Until next time...

Quiet Nights

Last night was a good night for us. It's not too often that my husband and I actually get time to sit down, relax, and enjoy some quiet television time together...last night we had the opportunity. It sounds rather trivial but I actually long for those little moments. Having 3 children and always being busy makes for some hectic evenings; last night not so much! Yesterday I got much accomplished; I cleaned the house, made dinner, dessert(which rarely ever happens), and was able to sit back and enjoy a little television with my hubby before he went by a friends house for a little while. I was asleep early so there will be no complaining out of me.

Play Time

Well today is yet another cool breezy day...but I don't mind it so much.

Hannah is officially a Girl Scout now...she is very excited and will be selling cookies soon. It will be nice for her to have an activity to be around other girls her age. She has friends in the neighborhood but most times plays with her brother and his friends. It will also give us something to do together when outings come up with her troop.

Logan is in soccer mode now and practices quite a bit so it keeps him busy after homework everyday. They are not doing to bad either...tied their first game and won the second. I like getting out in the fall weather to watch him play.

Chloe is a little busy bee today. We walk to school everyday and she kept conversation with me and after lunch said, "mommy, let's read...and build a tower." So that is what we did. We read a Care Bears Halloween book and built her tower.
Pretty good for a 4 year old...LOL. We have built bigger and better towers but this was her own. It was fun! Sometimes I get preoccupied and we don't get as much time to "play" when she gets home from school and I have to remind myself to slow down. The dishes can wait 30 minutes and I can fold laundry later. I don't want time to just pass us by. That is my goal for the week...take more time and slow down. I feel like I am fast forward a lot of the time and it's the little moments that kids remember.

Now it's time to get things done around the house before dinner and soccer practice tonight(because I have homework due later). So until next time....

Breezy Days

Wow, talk about a change in weather. If I didn't feel it before I do now-Fall has arrived! Although, I cannot complain...fall is my favorite season. I love the coolness without all the snow and ice, I love the smell of leaves burning, and I love that it is soccer season for Logan. Don't get me wrong, he played baseball for the first time this year and it was a lot of fun but nothing beats soccer season for me!!
Today was a busy day, and to end it we had soccer practice and Hannah is officially a Girl Scout. She is recovering from a broken arm so we all decided together that maybe she should sit this season of soccer out and find another activity. She found it....and is excited! Now Chloe is talking about tee ball next summer. Ahhh, having 3 kiddos can make for busy days anytime of the year let alone activities all at the same time. It'll work itself out though. I love being on the go....

Well this is kind of a short update, I am actually supposed to be doing MY homework right now and I am procrastinating, which happens often. So....it's off to work I go(on homework that is).

Until next time.....
