Oh blog how I've neglected thee....

....but life has been so chaotic lately that this is the last thing I have energy for. Actually right now I'm not really in the mind set to do a proper post, but I thought I'd at least write something as I just did a few changes.

Let's just suffice it to say that it's gonna be a LLLOOONNNNGGGG summer here! Heaven help me make it to August 19th!!! PLEASE????

Just a little bit of what's kept me away....

....well first there was Little Man's birthday party on the second of May, that took some preparation and then when it was over I didn't want to do a dang thing. Then the Monday after the kids and I headed to our neighborhood park to meet some friends and Little Man slipped on the steps leading up to the slides and split his lip open real good. Thankfully my friend took the girls while I took Little Man to the urgent care for stitches. Dear Sweet Hubby was working. Anyway, after three hours of waiting he finally got three stitches in his lip. My Little Man was so brave when he got the stitches, barely crying when they gave him the shot to numb him up. Then the Friday after that we headed back to have them take the stitches out and again it took almost three hours of waiting. When the doctor came in to take out the stitches she noticed his lip was infected, so we got a prescription for antibiotics and were instructed to feed LM pro-biotic yogurt for the next ten days.

During all this we were still waiting to hear if Dear Sweet Hubby got the promotion he applied for in Nebraska. Well this past Friday, the 15th, some big wigs were to come to the terminal to do a visit. We thought maybe, just maybe, they were also coming to tell Dear Sweet Hubby that he got the position, well they didn't. They didn't say a single thing to him about it. Not even a "Well thanks for applying but we've decided to go with someone else". Nope. Nada. Needless to say DSH was in a funk that evening and so was I. While I wasn't 100% keen on moving away from the town we currently live in, I was really looking forward to DSH only having to work one job and being home at nights and on the weekends. The only one who was happy was Tink because this means she'll be here to have the teacher next year that she really wanted to get. And Little Man, well he has no clue as to what we were all anxious about, so he was probably pretty happy too. But Peaches was quite bummed as it means no room of her own for a while. With the housing market as bad as it is and with so many houses for sale in our neighborhood there is no way we'd be able to move right now. I mean we could put the house up for sale but I don't want to have to try to live in a museum of a home for 6 months to maybe even a year with three kids, two cats and a dog while we wait for someone to buy the house.

So that's what's been keeping me away. When I do get on the computer it's usually to check email real quick, look at Facebook and then get off. Plus I was waiting to post hoping I'd have some good news to report. Hopefully you've all had a nice quiet past few weeks and I promise to try and post more regularly soon....

Busy Busy Busy.....

So much has been going on lately that I can't get my head to stop spinning. Plus then if you add in my addiction to Facebook which doesn't seem to be waning, then you get the reason why I haven't posted in a while.

First we had Little Man's birthday on Wednesday, the 29th. I had, or am still having, such a hard time believing he's 4 already. I mean where did the time go??? But I am so loving this age with him, he's so cute and mischievous, which I realize can be a bad combination. Plus he still really loves to snuggle with me, which is like one of my favorite things to do, so that's a bonus as well. It's funny because I asked him to always want to snuggle with me, even when he's like 16 and he said "okay". Hmmm I may have to remind him of that when he's 16 and wants no part of snuggling with mommy.....LOL

Then I've been cleaning my butt off for the party today, which is a pirate theme, so it should be loads of fun, but I just get so caught up in making my house look perfect for guests that I run myself ragged trying to clean EVERYTHING!!! Ugh, I need to learn to either keep it cleaner all the time or be less concerned what people are going to think if I have a pile of papers on my kitchen counter.

THEN.....you add in the fact that my dear sweet hubby has applied for a position with his current employer in Nebraska and I've really been busy, both physically and mentally. If I'm not thinking about the party then I'm thinking about possibly moving. We LOVE it here in Colorado, but this position in Nebraska could mean so many good things, a bigger house, dear sweet hubby only having to work one job and actually be home on the weekends, and him getting away from his current boss who stresses him out to no end. But then the town this position is in only has a population of about 25,000, AND NO TARGET!!!!! I'm still dealing with the whole "no Target" idea, but hey if dear sweet hubby is going to be home on weekends, we can do a trip to the nearest big town that actually has a Target!

And I don't think that Tink and Little Man completely understand what all moving to another state means, but Peaches, while sad about leaving her current school, is so excited about possibly having her own room that she can barely see straight. So I've decided if we do move then I'm going to try so very hard to make this a positive experience. Plus we'll only be about 3 hours away from where we currently live, so we could always try to come back for a visit to see our very best friends.

Anyway, this has all been on my mind lately, so I haven't posted much, but I have visited here to keep up on the blogs I follow. Anyway, I should probably get going, I need to bake the cake for the party so it has time to cool before we have to frost it. We are turning two 8" round cakes into a pirate hat. I'll try to post pics of the final product, which should turn out good with dear sweet hubby and I working on it.

So until I post again, have a wonderful day and hopefully you have very little to think/worry about! :)
