gotta get back in the blogging mode

work has been so uber busy lately that i am constantly wishing there were more hours in the day.  by the time i get home from work; play, feed, bath and put my babies to bed; make and eat dinner...its usually after 9 o'clock before I can just......BE.  any other mommas out there like that too??  Last week my cooking suffered too.  I aim to cook about 3 meals at least a week and it was so busy and hadn't been to the store, I was just out of sync.  Hate that.  I am embracing the crock pot at least once a week though and I have really been enjoying that.  It is great to make it and forget about it until we are ready to eat! :)

My boys though thankfully are great these days...I think we are hitting a stride and things are getting a little, dare I say, easier?  Now that Markey is walking and talking (well you know what I mean, 1 yr old talking!), he and Z are actually "playing together!" Don't get me wrong, there is a lot of toy stealing and the occasional pushing going on, but there is more running around with each other and playing then there is of the other, and for that I am thankful.  It is funny to see M follow Z upstairs and hear them happily playing together in the game room.  Although today was my day off, I was on call for work and it was rather hectic at times.  I was so thankful that during the very busy moments, the boys were content to amuse each other!!  I think they are going to be the best of friends for sure ;-)

Not much else going on....I have yet to open my sewing machine from the box that I got for Christmas and have only been able to play with my Silhouette machine a couple of times too.  I have a bazillion of ides floating around in my head, supplies to make several of them, and yet no time to do any of them.  But have no fear, it will happen!!

Hope all is going well in 2011 for everyone so far.  I am praying for lots of happiness for many I know and love this year!! :)


  1. I hear you girl!!! work is crazy busy and juggling the kids and house make for a late bedtime for this mommy everynight!! praying for you :)

  2. The evening is cut short so much! I'm so exhausted by 9:00 and it is like Chuck and I have just an hour to be together to catch up on our day before we collapse into bed. And usually that time is spent cleaning the kitchen, doing laundry, or other chores, or simply vegging in front of the tv.
