So Little Time

As I sit here typing this at the kitchen table, the kids are in the living room watching Jake and the Neverland Pirates and playing something with babies and bad guys.  Potatoes are boiling on the stove, the rest of dinner is ready to go in the oven, the table is set, and the dishwasher is ready to run after we eat.  I'm exhausted, like most days, and have my class this evening.  Don't get me wrong, I enjoy going, but this evening, I'm so ready for pajamas and bed.

I have not had the best run lately.  I've been suffering from withdrawals from a medication that I stupidly quit taking for a couple of days, only because I was to lazy to drive across town.  That has been no picnic, but today was the first day that I woke up, not feeling like my heart was going to pound out of my chest and like something was crawling underneath my skin.  Yes, not fun!  Moral of the story.  Take your meds as prescribed!  The consequences of being lazy can be awful.

Petty, our kitty, is getting sicker and sicker.  I never understood the people who did everything they could to keep their pet alive until now.  She's a part of the family and thinking about the family with out her makes me incredibly sad.  We'll have to have her put down soon, but we're trying to make through Rylie's birthday next week.

All you animal lovers out there should know that she's not acting as if she is suffering.  You would never know by her actions and temperament that she is sick at all.

Rylie turns a whole year old in one week!!!  She still has no teeth, but she's starting to walk, and has the biggest personality as well as about a 10 word vocabulary.

Ben had parent teacher conferences earlier this week.  They didn't tell me anything I didn't already know, but it was still nice.  Ben needs to get his eyes checked, badly, and he can write his name and cut on the lines whether it be straight lines or zigzags.  He does everything super fast and is obsessed with Star Wars.  Once again, I knew all about it, but it was pretty funny to see the teachers tell me he knows more about Star Wars than they do, and he's never actually seen them.  Today, a father of one of Ben's friends asked me if it was alright for his son to give Ben a little present (a light saber spoon).  I thought that was really sweet.

I feel like this week is flying by.  Time is flying by.  It's February!  Did I blink and miss January?  Holy cow!  Sorry, but it really just hit me how fast time is moving.

Sydney has been... well, she's been Sydney.  A friend of mine was talking about a fight she had with her son, who is 2, and how hurt she was by it.  It got a bunch of us talking, and we all seem to have gone through it.  I don't know about anybody else's kids, but I can tell you, Sydney is way more difficult when it comes to tantrums than Ben was, and Rylie, she's too young to tell still.  Tantrums are the worst part of parenting for me so far, but I'm pretty used to it now.  Sadly, sometimes they are actually a little funny.  I recorded one of the many from yesterday.

Life with Syd isn't all tantrums and anger.  She can also be one of the sweetest and funniest kids.

Just watching this cracks me up.  So much personality in these little people.

I've been enjoying the beauty of my home as well.  Or trying to, when I'm home.  I do love it here though.  Nice and homey.

It's the amazing pieces of beauty all over, especially the wonderful flowers.

Alright, I need to get going.  Have a wonderful night.
