Wow, God is so good. I had an amazingly productive day. It's amazing what I can accomplish in a day, A good gym workout, some cleaning around the house, then dropped off one child at a friends, hit the library, the D.I., Then the bank and costco.. Yeah, do NOT , I repeat, Do not go to Costco on a Friday, It is seriously worse than Saturday. I thought I was good and I don't think I have stood in a line that long for awhile. Yikes! Then J-man and I grabbed some frappucino's, and then ran to Smith's for a few other things. He was such a great helper, and man, we had fun. Riding on carts, and crashing into each other, tasting samples. And just chatting. My baby is getting so big. Anyway, I made him help me with the stairs that were covered in leaves. We didn't have tools, so we used a broom, and a cardboard box! Improvisation, Baby!!

Yep! Success! Thanks to my boy for the help! I seriously have the best kids in the world.

Then to an amazing meeting for church where God was so present all over it and made me feel as though I was me again, Worshiping God, socializing, staying and helping clean up and not worrying about anything other than showing people that they matter not just to God, but to me!!!

Parent Teacher Conferences.. Ugh

Parent Teacher conferences...oi What a crazy night... I always schedule my son's appointment last knowing that it will usually take the longest. Not because he is worse than the girls, or anything, but he is more social than the other two and They usually have more to say about him. So I scheduled his appointment for 4:45pm and the girls at 4:00 and 4:15. In and out of the girls appointments just as planned.. a little late getting into one of them but that is typical. As I head to my son's appointment it is 4:40, I get there and she isn't just behind.. there isn't just one person standing there... there are 2 people standing there waiting for their turn and the other family just went in.. Oh it's gonna be a long night.. I figure I have at least 30 minutes until it's my turn. I forgot that Addy had dance at 5, so I race her to dance, and I go back, to sit, and sit and sit. Finally it is 6 pm, And almost my turn, but I have to leave to get Addy from dance.. Here we go.. I get back to the school 3 minutes after the person who was in front of me in line gets out. So now I am one back and have to wait some more.. She gets done and BOOM she takes some guy and his kid.. Ugh. Lady, I really want to go home to eat. I haven't been home since 8:20.. Yes, AM!! So here I am sitting in the hallway waiting, 2 more families show up, I better be next, She comes out.. and the lady who is sitting there with her son, and the school counselor, says that she is next. That she has someone waiting for her. I wanted to tell her that my kids hadn't eaten we had been there since 4, and we were tired. But I think that my son's teacher sensed I was tired and so done, and she took me in and I got a 10 minute meeting. 10 MINUTES!!!! Seriously.. I waited 2 hours for a measly 10 minutes, Everyone else had 20-30 minutes, I got 10?? Kind of felt jipped but I was ready to get out of there and didn't have the energy to keep talking. Not sure why everyone else took so long. I got the info I needed and even brought up a couple of concerns! Oh well! I guess I need to still work on my big girl voice... Next time I will do his first and be first on the list!
