The Beginning

Well, I caved. I am now officially a blogger. I guess Facebook just wasn't enough. I am always amazed at how much time people spend on the computer blogging and facebooking and twittering and whatever else there is to do. How do these people get anything else done? And by people I mean the super moms that have jobs either at home or away from home. How do you work, cook, clean, launder, take care of kids, go to school, and sleep? I need more energy.....
The summer is winding down, and I gotta say I have mixed emotions about this. I am looking forward to being at home for longer than a week at a time, but I am dreading the inevitable winter. We have been having beautiful weather here the last week. We have also been having a sick family the last week. The two don't mix very well. I did take the girls out to the splash park in the Pass yesterday though. We've been cooped up all week and I just couldn't take it anymore! I was pushing Mackinley and Macey on the swings and Mackinley said "Mom, that tree has orange feathers." I looked around and there were yellow leaves showing up on the trees. It was kinda sad. The sadness was pushed aside though by the humor I found in her statement. I can't get enough of my kids!
My baby girl turned one this past week. I can't believe how fast they grow up! She already thinks she is much older than this though. Believe it or not, when the girls are getting in each other's faces it's usually Macey picking on Mackinley. I think she has the little dog syndrome. They have been at it more than usual this past week, due to everyone being sick and cranky. I have dealt with sickly kids a lot the past few months and frankly I'm sick of it! If it's not one thing it's always another, right? I don't want to think about what happens when you add a third kid into the mix.
I really do love my life right now though. It might be tough, but I really wouldn't want it any other way. My kids are great, super cute, and they absolutely adore me. My husband is amazing. He puts up with a lot in our house being the only guy. He tries his best to make the girls and I happy. He is a hard worker and he absolutely adores me. Right Jar? I live a beautiful part of the world. I have a decent house that is just going to be getting nicer (I really hate renovating). We really aren't lacking in any area of our life. Life is good! I love it!
Maybe this blogging isn't as bad as I thought. It's kinda nice to just sit down and type out my thoughts, clear the head a bit.
I do need to get to bed. The girls went down to bed early tonight. They were both out at about 7:45......45 minutes early!That is some kind of record. I really hope it doesn't mean early to rise though. Although 45 minutes earlier than 10:30 is 9:45 and I think I can wake up by then. I really am spoiled!
