Life just passes you by sometimes
Sorry for my delay in posting, life just passes by and things get so busy. I have so many things to talk about and trying to figure out what to write sometimes slows me down, so I'll break it down into parts.
1. Family: LIfe is crazy, end of school craziness for 4 kids, two schools, being the class parent in 3 classrooms ( and you know what that means, gifts, party planning, etc...) Its nuts. I thought having 4 kids under 4 was hard but as they get older it gets harder, so many things going on, so little time.
Also, we are in sports hell right now. Actually, I love the fact my kids are sporty and that they love to compete and play in everything, however, trying to cooridinate 4 soccer games, 3 flag football games,throw in a swim meet to Dover, NH for two kids and music lessons its crazy. This past weekend we had 4-5 hrs of flag football on saturday ( All Stars) and then on to Harvard Stadium for the finally on Sunday for 6hrs. My 9yr old's team won the whole thing and my 8yr olds team came short by one game. It was a very long and rainy day and trying to entertain my 5 and 6yr old was trying for 7+ hours.
Anyhoo, if life wasn't busy I don't know what I would do with myself.
2. The house.We have our house under agreement, so great and after only 2 days. It was hard to keep it clean and keeping the kids from destroying the place, I can't imagine what it would of been like to do this for a long time, I would of went insane.
3. New house- Fire trucks at new house today, alarms went off, security system activated, my GC called and asked if I knew the code, I had no clue, the previous owner didn't give me anything. Anyway, firefighters were able to fix it. I went to the house, introduced myself and said, " IM SURE THIS WONT BE THE LAST TIME YOUR AT MY HOUSE,YOU HAVEN'T MET MY KIDS BUT IM SURE YOU WILL DEVELOP A GREAT RELATIONSHIP WITH THEM OVER THE YEARS-HE DIDN'T LAUGH". Anyhoo, I dislike people who don't have a sense of humor.
4. Training: Things are getting done, here and there, when I can, doing the best I can. Satisfied is all I can say. I miss some of my training partners and working out with people but hopefully come fall when we move into the new house and the kids are back at school life will slow down a bit and I can get back on schedule.
OK Conundrum: 5yr old still wetting bed at night. Holding fluids at 5pm, making sure he goes potty before bed and sometimes waking him up when we go to bed to just make sure-still wetting bed. So, he's back in diapers at night and looking for any other solutions, would love anyones input.
Hope all is well with everyone, getting a bit distracted with the Bruins playing in the background.Gotta go, they are up 3 nothing, lets GO BRUINS
