Latest & greatest...

So, here are a few happening around our house...

We got Lucas new big boy bigger boy furniture. He wanted to go with a baseball theme, which of course Jon was just all too happy to agree with. It's actually really cool and it has a trundle too so he can fit 3 in his room instead of just 2.

We repainted his walls this blue color and then decided it would be really cool for Lucas to have a vintage scoreboard in his room. I looked and looked everywhere for one online. Either you find a peel & stick one that is totally generic or you find a really cool canvas that costs a fortune that shows only a piece of it. One of our family friends came over to the house and painted this scoreboard on his wall for us. It's not totally done in this picture but close enough. Isn't it cool?

My sweet babies...I'm even claiming my little niece as mine because that's how much I miss her. They came home during Memorial Day weekend and Lucas was just dying to hold both of them at once. This just shows me how big they are all getting...and attitudes...let me tell you about them!

Bad picture quality but isn't little dude cute? He all of the sudden LOVES his Jumperoo. Maybe it's because his feet finally reach the ground!

That's all for today folk!

End of my rope today...

Do you all ever have weeks, months, years where you just feel like you can't catch up? I'm swamped at work, swamped in life, swamped in everything. I always have all these high expectations for the list of things that I plan to get done and NEVER do I get to the bottom of the list.

It's overwhelming sometimes. Today I came to work and wanted to pull my hair right out because it instantly was one problem after another, one negative phone call after another and one more task piled on top of another. However, I decided to leave for 10 minutes and run through the drive thru at Taco Casa and on my drive decided to "Put on my BIG girl panties and deal with it". So now, at least my attitude towards that is better.

At home is another story. My laundry pile piles are bigger than both my children it feels like. I haven't been to the grocery store in ages. My closet is a glorified mess, which only tells me that I need to get rid of some things. You know what? I just don't feel like doing any of it when I get home from work...which is why it still sits there today!

Irritations and overwhelms aside, I don't forget how blessed my life it. I complain and then realize how many people have been looking for work for ages. I complain and then realize how many people don't have clothes that could pile up dirty and still have more to wear. I complain and then realize that some people don't have a home that could have a dirty closet.

It's just nice to blurt out some of those things to really help put things in a better perspective sometimes. I will make it my "mission" for the next few blogs to be about nothing but POSITIVE things!!
