Crazy busy...







So, I've been quite busy these last few days. You know, making a list and checking it twice? It doesn't help that my girls will randomly yell out things like: "Only 14 more days 'til Christmas!!" I keep reminding them that I am consumed with making sure Daddy has a Happy Birthday first. His birthday is on the 17th and I don't want it getting all smooshed in with the Christmas festivities.

I also homeschool my two oldest girls. Oh, did I forget to mention that? It has been very chilly in the mornings (honestly, I wake up and expect to see a blanket of white outside) and they are having trouble getting up right away. Now, I know. Those of you that homeschool are probably saying, "What's the big deal?" I know, it's not like they are going to miss the bus, right? I am just that way. I try to run a rigid school schedule and make sure that "school" is never questionable. I think that comes from teaching in a traditional setting for 14 years. I am slowly but surely getting over it. I let them take their time this morning and they even got to have hot chocolate when they came down. Yeah, I'm cool like that. - at least that's what I keep telling myself!

Anyway, we got through school and then had to run some errands for Marco. We had to go into Riverside where I happen to have an $80 credit at the Color Me Mine place. It is left over from last years school funds. Yup. Art class! I didn't know if I would have time to go, so I didn't tell them. They about came unglued when I pulled up to the shop. They were so excited! I even let Naomi paint and I got to do a little Ladybug! Hannah painted something for me - a jar that says Scrapbook $ - (I am supposed to act surprised on Christmas), Taryn painted a teapot/teacup set for Nana, and Naomi made her a matching cookie plate. Well, it was kind of matching. Little Marco did his part by sleeping through it all.
We rushed home...in traffic so that I could get home to cook dinner. The girls even made caramel apples. Marco loved dinner. I guess it's okay to be so busy. We actually got a lot accomplished and we did it together. I love being a mommy and a wife. =]
