Week in the Life : Random Thoughts about the week

I waste too much time. I should be more efficient.
Some things I am good about multi tasking others - not so much.

My kids eat a lot of sandwiches for lunch. Almost every day.

If I go to stores I like to spend money. So to not spend money, it's best to avoid stores. :)

I love that my kids get to play with the neighbor kids all the time. We are so lucky that they are all good little kids with good parents. We have common values and that makes it a whole lot easier. And really, we all live close and that makes it great too!

At about 4pm I get cranky. It's my sleepy, I've had a long day, please don't pester me, how long til dad gets home time. Some days I am good at working through it and not just being cranky. Some days, not so much.

Driving to and from school really adds pressure to the day - in the fact that you can't really go anywhere. And every day I am worried about being late for picking up Alden for school. I was once and it worried him and now every day around 3 I start watching the clock minute by minute. (Maybe that adds to my crankiness!

I love it when my kids play together. Nothing makes me happier.

Eli is such an easy baby. I am really blessed. I've had three good babies.

Eli was having a bit of a growth spurt this week. And had two nights of up every two hours for food.... which I am glad is not his normal routine! He is often sleeping from 8:30 or 9pm until around 5 or 6 am. Feeds and then back to sleep until 830 or 9. It's not every night, but it is a lot. And I am glad.

I love it when Regan gets home. Every day I am glad to see him.

We are lucky to have access to good friends. All around us.

A nice bouquet really adds to the atmosphere of the house.

I hate potty training. Every thing about it. Ew.

Can't believe my little Lucy is three.

We got to listen to General Conference at home via the internet and I am so thankful. Thankful we have a living prophet in the latter days. Thankful for the inspiring messages. Thankful for a testimony of Jesus Christ and of Heavenly Father.

Laundry is so much better in little doses rather than 6 loads in one day.

We go to the zoo a lot. In fact, Alden told us we took him there to much this week. (But we had family call and invite us to attend with them so we went both times!)

There are times when you have to sacrifice things you want, for things loved ones want. And that is okay. It's part of life.

Things are good. We are blessed.
