You know it is bad when you wake up Tuesday morning and ask your hubby what day it is (because you honestly can't figure it out, but it HAS to be Friday cuz you"re so tired and yet there hasn't been enough things to have gone on the be Friday). When he answers Tuesday and you let out a pathetic moan, you know it is going to be hard getting up this week. The extra bad part is when you almost do it again on Wednesday.

That being said, I am glad the week isn't over yet. I will lose my hubby to hunting and I'm not sure I am ready for that either. Well I guess I have already lost him to it, because that is all we eat, breath, sleep, talk about and even watch TV about for the past month. So next week Thursday I will have him back (for a month or two before the next hunt comes along).  But is still can't wait for my beloved weekend to come along.

Talking myself into...

Seems as if I have been trying to talk myself into many things lately with little success (working out better, eating better, deep cleaning the house...). Today I have to follow through with the thing I am talking myself into. What is that, you might ask? Getting the supplies and "helping" my daughter and her friend work on a project for school. We "get" to make a tooth out of Styrofoam and a tongue out of cake (cuz I'm cheep and ticked I already had to spend $10 on a stupid cube of Styrofoam and don't want to spend another $10+ to do the tongue). A cake will be cheaper and probably the same amount of work. I REALLY don't want to spend my Saturday doing, in mean helping on this project. WHY, and I mean it, do teachers think kids are going to learn so much from sending projects home that parents, I mean kids, do?? Just wondering.

Why is it that Harley catches every bug that goes around school? And with that, why is it so much harder to get everything done you need to with a sick child at home? Oh well, as they say...."So goes life" or at least mine. I have been able to get a few of the many hair things done for the school and Chanel's fundraisers. I also randomly stopped by and estate sale this weekend and got some earrings I can't wait to create some new pieces with. Sad when that is the highlight of your day, but hey, no throwing up so far. So that is a bonus. Off to clean and work on my many flowers, by the way I have 100 of my mini flowers to make.

Week in Review

Just so my kids can look back and say 'Oh, Mom wasn't so lazy after all," because Noah loves to tell people I'm lazy, this is my schedule this week:

Monday: Labor Day - We have been camping and 4 wheeling all weekend, so we get a little more in and pack-up to head home and unpack what we can

Tuesday: Clean-up after getting in (a little), Finish B-day shopping for Har (today is her birthday), Pick-up cupcakes to take to school, Check Har out for lunch and pick up a cake, Wrap Presents, Clean some more (laundry is included in this), Kids come home and Noah reminds me he has a therapist appt.

3:30-4:30 Noah's therapist
4-5:30 Harley and Jacei Kelly Greens Clinic (have to ask for help getting them there, thanks Britt)
7:00 Cake @ Mammy and Pappy's
8ish Home to put kids to bed and scrub out and vacuum the fifth wheel
Somewhere in there we get homework and reading done

Wednesday: Cleaning again, the house looks as if 100 bombs went off (but today I have a goal to at least get the kitchen, living room and entry way in order; I also get Noah's room and more laundry done)

3:30-4:30 Scouts, I am one of the leaders and have to be there the whole time
4-5:30 Kelly Green Clinic, once again need help thanks Janae
5:00-6:00 Noah swim team, to find out his time is different now and he goes from 4-5 but today he stays with a higher level
6:00 Babysit Logan and Cache :)
Get home eat dinner, do homework, read and crash!!!

Thursday: Noah and I have tummy aches, he refuses to get out of bed. send Har to school, crawl back in bed and sleep for another hour. Noah is feeling better and wants to go to school. Get ready and take him. Clean, Make phone calls (set up Dr. appts and fall festival call), work on orders

4-5 Noah swim team
4-5:30 Harley KG clinic
TONS of homework!!! (and don't think because you are a parent you are exempt from this)
Crashing again, I hope

Friday: Now today is going to be a much needed me day. I will straighten through the house and then craft with the girls

4-5 Swim team
6-??? Watch Harley perform at the FHS football game

Saturday: I need to weed, clean the garage or work on orders (but I do hope to sleep in)

So I hope the kids realize how crazy life can be and that I love doing all I do for them. I know right now they don't fully get it, but one day they will. And YES, I love to be lazy if given the chance. I welcome it with open arms.

Not one of those "Shining" Mom moments

So this morning as I get the kids ready for school I realize what a failure I was as a Mom last night. We are trying to get ready to head to the mountains for some good old R&R and I have a million things to do (so I blog) and am running around like a mad woman, OK not so different from any other day. We get homework done (or so I think) and a bunch checked off my list. So as I am packing lunches and making breakfast I realize I never go over Harley's math. I start to and am to flustered for time so I stop and say "who cares!" Then I feel guilty and check it and notice unfinished homework that she missed last night, and a lot of it. What kind of Mom am I? I know my kids need to learn to get things done without me pestering them, but it was a crazy night for us all and she rarely does this. So I was in a bad mood and lecturing, the kids were late for school, oh and Noah was covered in hives so I just gave him benadryl and put hydro-cortisone cream on and sent him on his way. Needless to say, not my finest moment.

Feeling Lame

I have SO many reasons I am lame, besides the usual, so I thought I'd make a list and see if I can knock any off my list to be a little less lame
  • Need to deep clean and clean the carpets, don't want to
  • Have nothing to blog about, ever
  • Can't seem to get the list of headbands done for my nieces that I know they will love
  • Don't want to grocery shop
  • Hate my nails and need to find time to replace them (LONG story)
  • Just want to lay in bed and do nothing and be able to drop 30 lbs while doing this
  • Which brings me to, get in a good exercise routine
  • Wondering how I can get a little motivation in my life
  • Just want to scrapbook, but don't ever make time
  • Need to get some orders filled and don't really want to at the moment, that will come at 10 o'clock tonight when I should be sleeping
  • Can't get motivated to pack for camping
Oh I could go on and on, but I won't.
