I think I've finally gotten a hang of this blog thing. I changed it up a bit and made it a little bit more fun for me. You'd think after almost 100 posts I'd be a pro but I still feel like such an amateur.
We've been super busy lately. I feel like my head has exploded and now I'm the one in charge of picking up the pieces. It's hard to find your head when you don't have one. I have so much on my mind right now that I'm going to try to make this post as organized as possible. With that being said, lets start at the beginning.
A couple of weeks ago our clothes dryer went out. Our family has been wonderful and has worked with us on getting our laundry done. It brought me closer to my parents. I was able to spend that time enjoying my parents playing with their grandchildren. I also got the opportunity to "Google" how to clean a washing machine after finding a diaper had been in the previous load. Not fun. We finally got enough money together to find one on craigslist and I am in laundry heaven! I've done about ten loads in two days. Hurdle one - Cleared
About a week ago our microwave decided that if the clothes dryer was going, then it was going to. It's hard not having the convenience of an instantly warm meal. Warming up leftovers on the stove is not really my forte (they burn quickly). I'm getting used to it though and don't see us getting a new one soon so I've sucked it up and decided to pretend it's not there. So far so good. Hurdle two - Cleared, but messy
And now, The kids are sick. They've picked up the cold going around. There was no way to hide from it. Keeping them locked in the house is just cruel, and believe me, Zoey lets me know when we've been inside too long. Michael is losing his voice and Zoey is coughing and sneezing. This morning it was worse so I decided to call the nurses line which of course led me to Kaisers waiting room. Ears, throat and lungs are clear on both. We are just working on the congestion which leads us to continue on what we were already doing. Hurdle three - Mid jump.
I've become a photobucket junkie. For those of you that haven't been on that site it's awesome!! It makes all my pictures look awesome! Well - to me. Last week I was able to take my youngest brother up to Chautauqua in Boulder. I got some great pictures and it was so much fun getting out of the house. I didn't even have the kids with me! That is still a rare occasion.
He is my champion. I am so proud of my family. We have overcome so many obstacles and run in to new ones every day. A big thanks to everyone that has given us a boost over these hurdles. We are so blessed to have you in our lives. We love you <3
