Bad, bad blogger!!!
I'm sorry...really, I am! I'm in one of the most challenging (if not THE most challenging) phase I've ever been in. My life is literally revolving around my job, my children and our new house. I'm working about 40 hours a week, and than I am coming home to a house that has endless of hours of work that needs to be done...anywhere from painting and hanging doors, cutting down and burning trees on our 1/2 acre lot, hanging frames, painting walls, organizing EVERYTHING,...everywhere I look I see things that need to be done - yeah...it isn't all that fun to come home to. Having said that - we are LOVING our new house and feel so comfortable here - I have a feeling we'll be here for many years! It's just taking FOREVER to accomplish anything because of Shep and Rauly. When school gets out at 2pm, they are exhausted and in need of me...and quite frankly, I'm in need of them! I miss them all day (yes they are in the same building with me and I see them off and on all day),...it just isn't the same as having them all to myself! SO, instead of cleaning, painting or organizing in the afternoons, I wind up rocking Rauly or cuddling with Shep - food for the soul! :)
Chad and I decided the other night that we're going to travel to Arkansas for Thanksgiving...my brother Jacob will be there too. I'm giddy with excitement...I miss home so much - we'll only be there for 4 days, but I told Chad I'd make the trip even if it was for just a day! Anyways, I'll post more pics soon, I promise!!!
