Time Flies When You Are Having Fun

This has definitely been a busy month — both personally and well, for everybody. The kids schools and activities are wrapping up, and as I’ve written before, life has definitely gotten a lot crazier. As I type this, we are planning on a trip to Green Bay for my nephew’s birthday. (Yes, I’d rather be sitting in a leather recliner than in a car for 4 hours or more since we are driving up in rush hour traffic!).  It is hard to believe that he is going to be 2!  I’ve got a picture of Madison holding Gabe on my wall.  It was taken when he was just a couple of days old I think.  :)

Since the party is Saturday afternoon, my mom and I will most likely getting our shopping (everything is cheaper there including sales tax!) done in the morning.  I’m still debating if I’m letting the kids bring their bikes.  My sister has a huge driveway (whereas my kids don’t have a driveaway at all).  But after chasing them around all days and shopping, I may need one of those catnapper recliners.  I’m over 30 now, I definitely need a nap some days!  LOL

Well, off to finish packing and then getting the van loaded.  (Think I can get a black recliner in there?  It would make the ride so much more comfortable.)  Have a great weekend!


  1. It's hard to believe that kids grow up so fast. And things will most likely only get more complicated in the future! Just make sure you find some time for yourself so you don't freaaak out one day!

  2. We used to have recliners and when the couch broke all the chairs went with the couch. miss them. I know what you mean about busy. I'm exhausted and still have so much more work to do

Oh, the weather outside is frightful here in Chicago. It feels like we went from barely fall to the deep depths of winter. Depending on where you live here in Illinois determines the amount of snow you got this last weekend. I got several inches, but further north got up to a foot! If you […]
