Random Tuesday Thoughts...

I am finding that I don't have much to blog about lately. I don't know exactly why, but am hoping to do better!

This Webkinz thing is CRAZY! My daughter is obsessed with being on the computer and playing games to earn "kinz cash" so she can furnish her webkinz bedroom and yard. I'm tellin' ya, you have to see it to believe it. So, you can imagine how helpful she is being around the house right now, since she has to earn her computer time. Now that I think of it, that may be the reason I haven't been blogging as much! No time on the laptop!

Ok, I have to admit, listening to Snowman's pregnancy stories is making me miss being pregnant. I love being pregnant! But we're not sure we're going to do that again. Right now 2 is enough! And some days, 2 is MORE than enough!

Do you ever just want to be left alone? Just for like, one day? I've been feeling that way lately. I just want a whole day and night to myself so I can sit and think, read, and maybe even have a good cry. It's been a long time since I've done that.

I'm feeling annoyed and frustrated alot here lately...and I'm not sure why. But I do know this: I don't like it. It's not me. It must change. This must go back to needing a day alone.

I want to go see a movie! I've been dying to see Harry Potter.

We leave for vacation this week! San Diego, here we come! I am so looking forward to seeing my friend Amy and her family, going to Disney and the beach and the zoo! More about that later...

We open-enrolled Kendall in a different school this year, and got her all registered yesterday. The school is so cute. Just a small little country school, just like we wanted. The secretary and principal were so nice, and just chatted away with Kendall and Noah. And the big selling point for Kendall? The wooded playground. It is nice and shady with some very cool playground equipment on it!

My dog stinks. He keeps running out and playing in the wetlands with the neighbor dog, Sadie. We gave him a bath last night because I could barely stand it anymore, but what do you think he did first thing this morning? UGH!

Noah is waking up in the middle of the night again. So, knowing that we are leaving for San Diego this week, I rushed him to see Brian, the Wonder Acupuncturist. Let's hope it does the trick, as usual.

I am working a long day today. Don't know why, but I don't feel like it. I like my job, I just have too much to do around here before we leave. And Barry is playing poker on Wednesday night, so we are running low on time to get everything done. Good thing I am ending my day early on Thursday!

Hey, my new mattress just got delivered right this minute! Time to log off, go put fresh line-dried sheets on it, and lay on it with Kendall! Gotta go!

More later, peeps!

I think you and I have very similar lives. I am a working Dad of 2 and I can so relate to a lot of what you post. Webkinz...yep I have that going on...just wait until your pre-teen starts hitting you up for Itunes...needless to say, it gets better.

We had to give up our dog. Allergies.

Vacation in San Diego...nice time of year to go too!

Anywho, if you are at a loss for blogging, come visit my site and laugh for a while.

Imagine how that works...I was just wondering when I could take the kids for an overnight and you need time to yourself!!! When you get back in town, we'll sit down with the calendars and see what we can work out!

I don't have to say this, but have a great time on vacation!

if nothing else works out for you, is your hubby willing to take the kids out for a whole day so you can have some alone time?

There must be something in the air. I'm feeling the same way today!

As a mom of two young ones, I can totally relate to feeling like you need a day for yourself. I hope you get to have one soon. I also want to see Harry Potter and haven't been able to find the time.

definitely something in the air, and I don't even have kids. haven't had such bad anxiety since early this year. hopefully your vacation will bring a well-deserved break from everything.
