Random Snippets

So - things are busy......I know that everyone else is busy, too. SO -- in list form --- here are some random snippets today.....

** I was going to post my menu yesterday but just never got around to it. I know you are devastated.

**I'm am totally operating on about 3 hours sleep. Went to bed at 11PM. At 11:05 B woke up and had a dirty diaper and then wouldn't go back to sleep. So, hubs moved to the couch and B came to sleep with me. Took him FOREVER to go back to sleep. i think that happened around 12:30A. At 2A -- I am awakened by crying from L. It wasn't crying as much as sniffing and whimpering.....she had a bellyache. We were up and down -- not sleeping -- until 5AM. She finally threw up and felt better. She has some congestion and I think that is what got her tummy upset because she doesn't have a virus and she was fine as soon as it was out. So then we slept for until 6:30 when it was time to get up and get everyone ready for school. No sleep makes me feel a bit under the weather myself. Anyone else?

**I had the bright idea to have *TWO* parties this week. I am completely a glutton for punishment. There is so much to do around here that I don't' even know where to start. For sure, it's a hot mess!!!

**One of those parties is for Miss A who is EIGHT today. I cannot believe I have an eight year old. She is beyond excited today. We took cupcakes and capri suns to school for her class today and she wore a button that said "Birthday Princess". She hides her excitement well, doesn't she? We will have a family party on Saturday and I plan to do her birthday post after that.

**The other party we are having is a Pumpkin Party. I am super excited about it. We have quite a few new young families coming to our church so in order to get some of the newbies together with some folks that have been her for a while, we are having a party. It is going to be fun! There will be pictures. This party is Friday night though.

**Not to mention all the run of the mill, everyday things that have to be done....laundry, housecleaning, soccer practice and soccer games, dance and musical theatre, and church.....whew. I'm even more tired just thinking about it.

Ya'll have a good Tuesday. I'm hoping to make it back to talk to you all tomorrow and more this week -- guess we will see.......

In HIM --

Oh bless your heart! Hope you can get some "down time" soon. It's a lot of work with long hours being a mommy.

Blessings to you today!
