Life Lately


Hello.

We've been busy around here.

Doing what? No clue.

I guess you can say we've just been busy with life lately.

Side note: Olivia just walked in here with three bags in her hand.

No, she's not my child at all.

That's a joke for those of you who don't know. I've been called a bag lady a time...or two.

Anyways....

We've been swimming, playing in the sand table, hanging out with friends, grilling out hamburgers on the grill, making trips to the new sports store Academy just to walk around, book club, painting bathrooms that should have been re-painted three months ago, and just hanging out at the house trying to get back into some normalcy.

Last Wednesday, I woke up and realized that we had been going full speed, with something planned everyday for over a week. I decided we need to slow down, so we've been hanging out at home the last few days and getting reacquainted with each other.

Until today, when we started VBS all this week. I signed up to help out and let me tell you...it wore me out wrangling three 4 & 5 year olds (I'm sure at this point Nicole is going to make fun of me since she had five in her group...ignore her). I'm going to blame it on the fact that we had to be up and out of the house by 7:15. I am usually up, but not use to being out the door by that time. Overall, it was fun and I'm excited about the rest of the week. We signed up to help at a church we do not regularly attend and randomly, all three of the kids in my group I knew their parents in some sort of fashion. I thought that was kinda crazy.

The plus side of it was that we came home and Olivia slept for 3 1/2 hours. Plus, I got a nap in there too. You know you need a nap when your mom calls on the way home from VBS and suggest you go home and take a nap. Thankfully for my husband and child, I did.

Today is the start of a hard week for my sisterwife Amy and her son Luke. She wrote a beautiful post that is worth reading for anyone whose ever lost someone close. You can read it here. Say a little prayer for them.

That's all I've got for today.

Hope everyone had a great Monday! : )

I feel you on the busy part! I haven't been able to breathe lately since I have had so much going on. I keep telling myself that once i get past such and such a project I'll slow down, but it seems like there is always another project around the bend. :)
