This Week Is Crazy!


This week is going to be nuts for me. I am slammed at work, I leave tomorrow for Pittsburgh for training on a new network for 2 days. My FIL is coming on Thursday night for the beginning of hunting season here in MI.
My husband bought me a new camera for my birthday last month and I can't figure out how to get it to download any of my pictures, so that's why you haven't seen anything from Halloween on...I'm working on it.
I'm trying to start Christmas shopping. I did get the kids' pictures done for Christmas cards, so that's a good thing. I got all of the Hallween decorations put away over the weekend.
I am constantly on the run with the kids, hockey games, tryouts, doctors office, ortho office...it's getting wild. We had snow yesterday and the roads were icy this morning, so I left at the crack of dawn to follow Zach in to school today because he doesn't have a lot of experience with icy roads.
I started reading this book and I can't put it down. Be warned, it's a tearjerker, but it's wonderful. Thank you to Kelly who has been my personal librarian and has loaned me so many wonderful books.

Awwww, the life of the everyday mom.....enjoy every minute of it because it is gone so fast. someday you'll be an older grandmotherly type like me and you don't get to see these precious children but on occasion.... you will miss these days--like trace adkins says--you're gonna miss this.
:) May God bless your week with positive feelings and plenty of nutrition and rest.

Hi! Hang in there. Hope you survive the week. I now know I am not the only one feeling the same way! Life is always so busy around this time of year. I pray that you will find some time to do something for yourself like soaking in a hot tub listening to some relaxing music with candles lit.

Hugs,
Jody
