This photo pretty much sums up our lives at the moment...(and the fact that he never stops to take photos anymore!)
Life is moving at 100 mph and I'm barely hanging on for the ride
I am constantly speeding from Point A to B... take this day for example. Drop my high schooler to his Symphonic Band Concert, then driving all the way around (why do they close the Muldoon gate past 6 pm is beyond me, his school is literally right outside of our home through that gate.. but we have to go all the way around through the freeway to get there!! Ugh) Then race back on base for my other son's basketball practice. Only to zoom back to get the older one. Home by 8 or 9, we are all exhausted.. Hence our rough mornings lately.
Basketball season has started and these 2 boys are in 2 different leagues at 2 opposing days of the week, so I am there 4-5 times a week!!!
This weekend was our "Spooktacular Event" at our scrapbook store. I spaced out the families on Friday, but jammed packed them on Saturday... (Note to self, not a good idea..) So.. I'm still "hung-over" from that weekend event... All in all it was a great event and glad we did it. The last time we did that was 2 years ago. So it was nice to swing back into things again.
However, I was really bummed that I did not make my son's Highschool Championship Highschool Football game on Saturday... The kids and the hubby had such a great time.. I really wish I was there :( I joined them for dinner that night and just chilled, with my feet up, and totally spoiled by my hubby and kids.
Last week started off with this hazy fog that the weatherman said would let up by the end of the day... but it lingered on..
Till the weekend, (of course when we had those indoor mini sessions) that we finally saw that sunshine!
Sunday, I shut the door to downstairs, leaving the computers and laundry behind... to just "be". We decided to challenge that brisk 35 degrees and head out for a nice run.
It never fails.. when ever life gets a bit too much for me.. a good run just seems to put life into perspective and I am always rejuvenated.. despite the fact that we are nearing freezing temperatures.
When we came back from our run, we caught these 2 hanging out, doing homework, and it was quite bizarre but lately, Ethan has really stepped up to the "watching sissy" game. I'm not sure if he and Izzy have been getting a long because I've been gone both Friday and Saturday, but whatever it is, I like it..
After our run, we headed out to a little trip to the mall. (Why is it so easy for me to spend on the kids and never on myself :) Ethan actually wanted to come to the mall to get a few long sleeves and since they are getting so picky.. I wanted him to pick them out.
*I look a little to excited to take a photo with my oldest.. I think it's the fact that he's actually in a photo, yet alone with me :)
A nice relaxing Sunday.. I forgot to add dinner at Red Robins, topped it off quite nicely.. Now only if I had slept a little earlier. But the problem with hubby on his mid shifts, is apparently I'm on it too!
