well, well, well
Seems it's been a while since I have taken some "me" time to blog. Oh, who am I kidding? My only realy "me" time is at 5 am and I use that to get some excercising in. I have been running every morning- at least when it's not raining or blowing 40 mph. I am making it 4.5 miles at least 3 days a week, haven't made it 5 in a row yet- there is either an early morning meeting or I have worked 2 nights in a row and just can't push myself to go that far, or, I don't know, one of another million excuses I am sure I have already used as a way to slack off. I just wish that it was helping me to look better. I will admit, I do feel better on the days that I run, but it sure would be a bonus if it would help my pants fit too!
Well, it seems I missed blogging about Will's b-day. That's right, my baby is 4! I don't want to talk about it. I don't want to admit that I don't have a baby anymore. He is the cutest, funniest, craziest little guy you have ever met. Sure, I might be prejudiced, but if you spent a day with him (especially on one of his "on" days) you would certainly agree. I took the day after his b-day off of work to spend with him. We went to the zoo, played pirates at the park, met up with Scott for lunch and then just went home and played. Days like that sure make me yearn for being a stay-at-home mom. But, alas, that is not in the cards for me.
And now, believe it or not, Hannah is going to be 9 tomorrow! What? Seriously, where have the years gone? I look at pictures of the girls when they were 2 and 3 and it doesn't seem like it was that long ago. Everyone always tells you to cherish the time when they are little because they grow up so fast. In the back of your mind you are thinking "well, duh I'm going to cherish the time", but I don't think I ever really thought I would sit and wonder about the things that I may have missed or the times that I could have done something more memorable with the kids. Believe me, I really do have those times. Especially now with working more and spending the time I do have at home trying to keep up with the "grown-up responsibility" things. I am taking tomorrow off to spend the day with "peanut". I have made us facial appointments and then we are going out for lunch and shopping to find her "b-day outfit". I can't afford to do the kind of shopping that I would like, but I do try to get the kids one really cool outfit for their birthdays.
Hannah had her first friend b-day party yesterday. It seems weird to think that she is going to be 9 and never had a friend party before, but when she was at Cleveland Elementary, she just didn't really have many friends. We did a luau party theme and 5 girls came to celebrate. It was a nice sized group and I think they all had fun.
Yesterday was also the last game of the spring soccer season. Hannah has been fortunate enough to have the same coaches and players for the last few seasons. These girls are really starting to look like they know what they are doing! They had a perfect season- all wins! I hope that she is on the same team for fall.
Well, that is probably enough me time for now. I am supposed to be working on balancing the checkbook before I head to inventory at Victoria's Secret. Sounds like fun, doesn't it?
