Ok...Blogger is NOT cooperating with me...
so, once again I cannot load pictures...

We went to a Kindergarten play date tonight at a local play place.
The kids had a lot of fun.

The teachers and the principles were there...
So the kids and the adults all got to meet each other.
The whole family was able to get in for free also!
Best part of the night!!

Weird Earthly Happenings...

We had an earthquake today!
It wasn't centered here...but we sure felt it! Happens about once every 10 years or so... I'm gonna mark the calendar now....

We are under a tornado warning for the 3rd time in 2 weeks...
We are havin a really bad storm right now... Computers are shut down...thank goodness for my BlackBerry...

Enough geological excitement for me today... I'm gonna sleep through the rest of this storm... We lost tv bout an hour ago anyways...

Sleeping problems...

Summer time has brought around sleeping problems...
I get that it is so not cool to have to go to bed when it is still light outside...but really...
my kids cant stay up till 11pm either... or can they????
We have had quite a problem getting the kids to sleep... more than usual...
it seems to rotate between kids right now too....
Tonight I had the Little Lady and F in bed with me... dh came home and then they went to bed...
Apparantly I dont have what it takes to put kids to bed...unless it is my own!
We have also had a problem with the kids waking up early...
I remember being a kid and just wanting to sleep... nothing has changed as an adult...but still... why dont they want to sleep in the morning????
so... we have kids late up at night... up early in the morning... all equals cranky kids.
They are getting a lot of exercise and such in the pool and at school and such... I mean it is tiring me out! *laughs*
Oh well... we need to find the magic bedtime again... gotta begin getting our boys in a routine for school this fall... they wont get naps or anything in K5... so they need to be able to wake up early, stay up all day, do homework at night, and then go to bed at a reasonable hour.
Hoping after our two summer birthdays, things will begin to get better and the kids will begin to sleep again...

Monday Mommy Fail

There should be pictures of my boys' tee-ball games here.

Instead, I had to be in class...

So, I missed both of their games.

They were disappointed when they finally came and got me...

They wanted to tell me about their games...but they were too tired...

So, I'm gonna hear about it tomorrow.

Not a huge deal maybe...but guess to me it is...

I just feel like I am failing at this mom job...while succeeding at others...

Yes... I want my cake and I want to eat it also.

Little things that matter...

Wore a new suit to work today.
I liked it... dh didnt.
I got three compliments on it.
I'm glad about that....
See, all this office stuff is completely new to me...
Before the injury, I'd roll out of bed... throw something on... get to work,
put coveralls on, work and get nasty as all heck...and then throw "acceptable" clothes back on.
Acceptable was/is usually a tee-shirt and a pair of jeans...
shoes/socks are always optional.
Nowadays though... getting dressed means... well being dressed up.
I work in an office that requires suits.
Suits that one can wear to court if need be.
Complete with shoes and socks.
It has and will take some time to get used to.
It will also take some time to get used to being treated differently....
I'm no longer accepted by "blue collar folks" and I'm not accepted by "white collar folks"
Guess I need to join the "Grey Collar Folks"

In other news today...
We finally have a NEW radio in our van!!!!!
I have spent a week driving around with kids and husband with. no. radio.
It was not fun.
now... I H.A.T.E. the radio station that my husband listens to...
but, bring it on over having to hear all 4 kids whine on my way to work and on the way home from work and on the way here and there and everywhere!
Now... ahhhh..... I can turn up the radio again...
We have also moved up in the world since we can plug my ipod into it!
Now I can listen to Conway Twitty whenever the mood hits!!!!!
Of course.... it will now be a battle between Conway and Spongebob....
I'm betting on the hair!
