Catch up...

Sorry it's been so long since I posted... I haven't had a lot of positive things to say, so I've been trying to keep those to myself. I went back to work last week... 2 weeks post-hysterectomy... WHAT WAS I THINKING??? I was exhausted everyday by 3, but unfortunately did not get home a single evening before 9pm!

You might be asking what was keeping me out till 9pm every night... SOFTBALL!!! I'm not sure whose great idea softball was (oh wait, it was mine), but I am not so certain I still want to follow through with it. We have practice or a game 4 nights this week! If I only had one child playing it would probably not be so overwhelming... but I signed them both up! Kali LOVES it, but her games are often at 8pm at night... I don't know about you, but I do not know many 7 yr olds that need to be out that late at night. Kali turns into a devil possessed child if she doesn't get sleep, so I'm not sure how this is going to work! Megs likes softball, but doesn't want to admit it (cuz then mommy would be right) and she has some laziness issues to work through... like you have to bend at the waist and move in order to catch the ball... but she seems to be doing better. I know the season is only about 8 weeks, so I'm hoping we live through it!

On a positive note... I discovered yesterday that we only have 4 more mondays to the college semester! YEAH!!!!!!!!!! That means for 4 more weeks I will have to get out of bed early... then I get to sleep late! YEAH!!!!

On an even more positive note, we are in the process of booking a trip to Mexico... Robert and I and another couple are leaving on May 15th and coming back May 19th! YIPPEEE!!!! I'm quite excited about it since we have NEVER really gone anywhere for more than a weekend and I have never left the country! It will be nice to be pampered and to get away!

On a sad note, my grandma is in the hospital and it looks like she will be having open heart surgery soon. Her valve is doing something weird and needs to be replaced. She is remaining rather positive, but I hate that my mom is going to have to stop her life again in order to take care of grandma.... keep them in your prayers please!

Glad to see an update. I, too, am one of those crazy moms who sign up more than one child for softball/baseball. Then you have practice 2X a week and a game...for each KID!!! What were we thinking?! Although, I do love it. There is just something about sitting out there in the sunshine watching...I LOVE IT!

Yeah, for the trip to Mexico!

So sorry to here about your Grandma. We will keep her in out prayers.

YEAH! Only 4 more weeks of stinkin school. SOOOO tired of the schedule!

Have a great week!
