Some days nothing gets done. At the end of the day I sit and think, trying to figure out where the day went. I usually have no idea. It has ended, and nothing was accomplished. I am greatful we are all alive and well, but I cant help feeling lazy. When I tell my friends they always blame it on the kids. I have my kids every day. They're mine! So why are some days non productive and others not....I must be lazy, sometimes. Or at least it feels that way to me. Granted chasing a 6,5,3, and 1 year old around can be exhausting and frustrating. However, I'm not buying into that as an excuse. I do realize that getting things done is not as important as stopping to be silly and having fun with my monsters every now and then. Hopefully, more often than then! So for now Lord, give me the wisdom to know when to play, the courage to not stress out, and the strength to just let go! Amen.

Taking a little time out of the insanity to say hello. I have been so busy this year. You probably wouldn't believe me if I told you, but I will. I spent over half the year going to my mom's everyday. Taking all 4 of my kids there all day everyday. So I was taking care of them, and my mom who has lou gehrigs disease, and my brothers and sisters. I've been homeschooling my 16 yr old sister, poorly but she's a demon. No seriously she is. I was doing better. However after 2 weeks of excruciating migraines and a possible miscarriage I had to cut back. That's why she is poorly homeschooled. I can't do the work for her, and I've got no power over her to make her. So I advise and that's it. She's not doing well but I did my best. I still help take care of my mom. I also took over her job in the family business. So now I am office manager for my dad's office. I work anywhere from 20 to 40 hours a week. And still do every thing else. The only difference is now I have a Lil money so ever so often I pay someone to help clean. Some days for no reason at all I feel so exhausted. Unfortunately for now that's my life. It could be worse could be better. I am trying my hardest not to take my children and hubby for granted. I'm trying not to miss any of the little things. I'm trying to hold it together. Trying to be a good mom and role model. Some days i do better than others. Often the stress makes me yell. I don't wanna yell. Trying to get to a place where i can be proud of myself i stead of feeling like a failure. Which I s hard to do when you set impossible goals.

Everyday last week I sent a cutie (small orange fruit) with Evie in her lunch box. Everyday the lunch box came home with only the peels. So today I bought more and told her I got more cuties for your lunch. She said "mom I have to tell you the truth. I don't like cuties." I reply, "but you ate one everyday!?" She said, "No, someone else did....I gave them to one of my friends!" I busted up laughing. She then added "if you want me to eat fruit you should send apples and peanut butter!" I just kept laughing!

Sunday Evie was playing on a ride on toy when she crashed into something and broke a tooth! She said it was wiggly, but when she wiggled it just broke. She didn't cry and says it doesn't hurt. Lucky it's a baby tooth and would come out soon anyways. However it broke completely in half across the gum line. A tiny bit is hanging down but not enough to grab an try to wiggle or pull the rest out. We are finally going to the dentist today, Wednesday. Hopefully, we will get some good news. I'm hopeing he can get the rest out quickly and painlessly! Ha, like anything ever works out like that in life. Wish her luck and say a prayer....we shall see! The worst part is this tooth is one of three that have cost me over 3,000 dollar in the last 6yrs. She had what they call "bottle rot" and has had them fixed 3 times, by 3 different dentists. Each time they didn't get all the decay out so after time it spread. The last time she had it done in a hospital. They had so little tooth left she had basically fake teeth attached. (I don't know the correct terminology an am to tired to look it up!) The second dentist treated her like you would an adult so she's terrified of dentists!
