Drawing a Blank

It's harder than usual for me to get myself to blog. I feel like I can't because I have to leave a very important part of my life out for the time being. No fun! I'm bursting at the seams wanting to share the past eight months of my life.

Soooo, what can I share. I had a good dream that what I'm waiting for happened. Too bad I woke up, and I'm still waiting, tear...

Caleb is really enjoying orchestra, and looking forward to his upcoming concert. I can't believe I have a teenager, and often wonder how I will handle the years to come. Especially him heading out in to this scary world. Am I really this old?

Hunter is enjoying dance and piano. She is looking forward to dancing and playing for Christmas events. She is such a character. I know they say your kids shouldn't be treated as friends, but she's one of my best friends. I love having a girl's night out with her. If only she could keep her stuff picked up.

Michael is super busy. He is my best friend ever. So thoughtful, and caring.

That is all for now I guess.

Life is Good, Apparently So is Food

So, a lot of exciting things going on. They mostly revolve around three beautiful children, okay two children and one, eeeek, teenager. My Caleb turned thirteen today. I'm proud to say he is still respectful and loving even though his hormones changed quite a while ago, he's still Caleb! And yes I did say three! We have had a lot of changes in our life. They started March 16, 2010. It's a story I can't wait to share, but I have to. Soon I will elaborate. I was going to share a picture, but can't find it. I'll sneak it in later when Michael is awake to help me find it.

And, ummmm, I'm getting chubby! So, here in this public realm (of me, myself, and I, cuz no one reads this silly old blog that I never update, but have good intentions to start and fail over and over) I'm going to state that I'm going to lose 20 pounds. Really, no joke! Let's be ridiculous and set the goal as December 1st. What happened to the weeks of running 15-20 miles, now it's tough carrying the laundry up the basement stairs. Food, that darn food, it's so good...Also, sitting on the couch snuggling a baby, that's good too!

Happy New Year!

Wow, it's 2010... Hoping for good changes over the next year. Starting with our move. There is a good chance that we will be moving this weekend, yay! It seems kind of weird that I'm like, yay, it's gonna be 27 degrees next Sunday, thanks goodness it will be warm out. Iowa has deceived me in to thinking that's warm. Of course it is a lot better than the 3 degrees that it will be on Saturday.

I'm excited to start school tomorrow. The kids aren't, even homeschooled children complain. My question is: How can they complain? Fun field trips, four hours of school or so a day, start school around nine, some days wear pajamas(did I just type that...whoops), snacks and lunch when you want, vacation days as needed...I don't seems like there are some things to make you feel lucky. But when you are a child you don't look on the upside, unless your a Duggar. I need to find out how the Duggars have such positive kids!

I almost have all their work graded. It was all checked, just not graded and recorded. They are doing awesome, I'm very proud of them. I'm anxious to get their ITBS reports back tomorrow. I know they are doing great , but it's just an extra confirmation that I'm not ruining them : P

Happy New Year...
