Checkin' In

I guess Blogger has been out of commission for the past several hours, almost an entire day. It drove me crazy! I mean really crazy!

I feel disconnected from my blogger world. What is everyone doing? What are you cooking? What are you sewing? What are you making?

I myself have not had time to post because I have been busy with the kids. Just to illustrate this further, please by all means check out my week!

     Monday: The Short Chic started swim lessons. The Boy had to be at the high school for sports physical night. Husband took the girl. I took the boy.

   Tuesday: The Boy had a baseball game and a choir concert. He tried to ditch the choir concert until he found out it was required for his grade. We had to miss baseball. The Boy is still mad about it.

Wednesday:  The Short Chic again had swim lessons and The Boy had baseball practice. I took the boy, Husband took the girl. Then we swapped. I went to swim lessons and he drove The Boy home.

Thursday:  The Short Chic had gymnastics. The Boy had a baseball game. I took The Short Chic, Husband took The Boy. The Short Chic and I showed up at the game. The Husband took her home before the end of the game. (side note: the team won 16 to 1)                                    
The husband and I literally met ourselves coming and going. I drove The Boy to baseball and he drove the Short Chic to swim lessons. I left baseball to go to swim lessons and he would go to baseball. We have made many jokes this week about being taxi cab's.

I was a single mom for many years, so I know it is a hard job. But my head is once again bowed to all the single mom's out there with multiple children who can juggle their schedules!  And this is not an isolated week.

And you all know me, as if this was not crazy enough, we decided at the last minute (Monday) to hold a yard sale this weekend. Of course, nothing was ready for a yard sale. The husband and I have prepared late every night this week, so we can participate in our communities annual yard sale.

Other things going on in my world that are noteworthy:

  • One of my former supervisors, who has a wonderful soul, lost her home this week. Thankfully no one in the family was in the home at the time of the explosion/fire so all are safe. The home however, is severely damaged and they are living out of a hotel until the can rebuild their home. So, when you say your prayers please add an extra in for my former supervisor and her family. Her name is Pam too.

  • The Boy is traveling away from home this weekend with his school. The choir is heading to St. Louis via bus to sing in a competition there. They will then spend the rest of the day at Six Flags. Again, prayers please for safe travel and safe behaviors. We should probably include extra prayers for the chaperons. Can you imagine taking nearly 80 kids on a trip like that!

  • This weekend is the long-awaited bridal shower of my dear friend Krista. Krista is my age and has never been married. She met the love of her life a few years ago and got engaged this past Valentine's Day week. I am so excited to attend her bridal shower and wish her well on her new married life. (Even if that means she is moving away from here to be with her future hubby!) I will also get to see my college roommate this weekend at the shower and I am so looking forward to that!
