Catching up on life.

Catching up on life - haha, yeah right! Easier said than done! I feel like I am constantly running in circles, trying to keep up with a constantly growing to-do list. I keep saying that I just need a day off from work to catch up, but on those days I am just too exhausted to accomplish anything! My seasonal job ends in three more weeks so hopefully that will allow us to all fit into a smoother schedule. I am going to use that time to focus on my regular part-time job and starting a business from home. More importantly, I'm going to use that time to focus more on my kids and our life as a whole, sticking to our schedules and having more fun time.

The husband and I have been talking. We CAN make this all work. Despite the many (and I mean MANY) setbacks that have come our way, we can still make this all work. We love each other and are in this for the long haul. We love and adore our children. We work hard. We have goals, and we will achieve them.

After a very long day at work, I'm going to throw some laundry in the dryer and do a load of dishes and head to bed. Tomorrow is a repeat of today, but Sunday brings some time off to enjoy with my family who are in town visiting us. Yay!

It's been awhile. We have been working like crazy around here. I'm juggling two jobs, the brother is getting more hours at his job, and the husband just started a new job this week. We are determined to make ends meet - eventually!

The munchkins are well. Both are visiting the doctor this week - Princess is getting some blood tests and Baby Boy is following up on some food intolerance issues. He also has a CT coming up. Fun stuff. Not.

Our family is coming in from the great state up north! Grandma will be here in 6 days, mom and brother will be here in 8. I can't stand the waiting - I'm beyond excited!

I'm exhausted, cranky, and feel incredibly unorganized. Tomorrow I don't work and am hoping to wake up refreshed and ready to accomplish the many tasks on the ever-growing list I have in my planner. That's the plan, at least.
