Adventures of Motherhood

I am a harried mother of three kids who move at light speed and a husband who lives in a world of words. If that isn't enough, I teach in an elementary school as I slowly watch my hair turn gray.

I remember when...

I remember when we had no kids and we used to clean our house because we were going to have friends over. Sadly that is no longer the case. Now we spend our weekend tidying our house so our kids can have playdates.

The bad news is that I spent the morning cleaning up, the good news is that my week will start off on the right foot...the house is tidy!!

Our children seem to have a bigger social life than we do. We spend our time going from drop-off to pick-up with hardly any time for us to enjoy.

We are so excited...all three kids have a program together, tonight, for 2 whole hours!!! Can you see me grinning?!?

My hubby and I are going to drop them off at the bowling alley and grab some dinner at a nearby restaurant...and you actually order at the table! Please don't faint on's true the food arrives on plates and not wrapped in paper!

I honestly can't remember the last time we went on a date. We often go when our parents visit but for some reason the last few times we just couldn't or didn't get away. I think the last time was in August...oh that's awful!! Come to think about it, we didn't even go out for my had swimming that night.

So take the time to spend some alone time with your sweety and don't let it go 3 months between dates!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Is it half way through November, already!?!

It's hard to believe that we are already half-way through November. The last few weeks have been crazy and I feel like time is flying by.

In the last 3 weeks, we have celebrated Zach's birthday, twice! We had visitors from out of town 2 weekends in a row. I love having visitors..but it always seems like you are cleaning to get ready for them, make, serve, eat and clean up from a meal and then clean up afterwards. It sounds like I am complaining, but I'm really not. I thrive on entertaining. Carmi was also away on a business trip last weekend and early this week, which is always stressful in itself.

But I am starting to feel my age. Could it be the November blues? Very rarely to we see the can feel the really cold weather about to descend on us. It's usually about this time of year that I feel the need for a few days off.

I have parent/teacher interviews coming up and hopefully in the next few weeks the pressure will be off. Okay, I know I am kidding myself. I always feel the pressure...and I know I do it to myself...I guess that's what makes me, me :-)

I hope you have a happy Thursday and are looking forward to the weekend ahead!
