I told myself I was going to write a post at least once a week. Well, you all see how well that has gone. It has been HECTIC! at my house! My husband just got a new job, which I’m very proud of him for. The only thing is his job is 50 minutes away. I know, I know, not a big deal to you long-time commuters, but a rather big deal to me. He’s two weeks in on his job and I must admit that I’m feeling a bit like a single parent these days (no insult to real single parents--I've been there). Before the new job my husband and I had a great (well, great to me) schedule worked out. I went to work at 8, taking the two older kids to school and day care. Then, he kept the twins until 2 when they went to the sitter’s. He then picked up our son and went to his coaching job until about 6 and I got off at 5, picking up the other 3 kids. Now, I’m doing all the carting around and picking up of all of the 4 kids and it’s exhausting! Couple that with coordinating doctor visits in and out of town and therapy appointments--and let me tell ya, this gal ain't organized. I'm about ready to pull my hair out already. I know my hubby was in desperate need of some adult interaction during the day and I’m happy that he now gets that. I know he was in need of that feeling of productivity during the day and contributing to society, and I’m glad he now gets that too. Now I’m in need of a nanny! How does everyone else do this? I definitely need some ideas! Also, any ideas to help me get organized would also be appreciated.
We had a great Easter this year. Here are a couple of pics from that. So great that my car still looks like Easter threw up in it. I have fake grass and candy everywhere!
On another note, I’m asking for prayer for my family right now. I’ve been in prayer over a situation that is close to my heart and I’d like prayer from you all as well. It’s nothing major, just something close to my heart.
