apologies

Alright, I’ve never been one to say “I’m sorry” but I have been MIA lately and I really am sorry.  ):  I don’t even know why I haven’t been posting as much as I would like, but my blog is not the only thing that has taken a back seat.  Yes, I have 2 kids in sports.  We are getting back into the weeks where there isn’t one day we’re not doing anything.  My only “free time” seems to be in the mornings.  And my family can for this, I am not a morning person.  I am a bear.  A mean, ‘ole, grouchy, grizzly bear.  And we’re totally busy in the evenings.  The kids havent even been getting to bed until around 9:30-10 p.m.!  By then, I’m so pooped I’m usually in bed before they are.  I baby sit my nephew 2-3 days a week as you all know.  He wasn’t here for 10 minutes yesterday morning before he got paint everywhere and flushed 2 toothbrushes down the toilet.  Little M’s birthday is today.  I don’t have anything planned for her.  And I only started thinking about a party to celebrate Sunday!  So she’s gonna have to wait 3 weeks before her party.  ):  poor baby.  I hope I can pull it off.  It’s Candy Shoppe themed.  I still can’t find invitations I’m satisfied with.  Today, I thought I’d take her to a nearby indoor playground, but it was already 11:30 when I thought of that, so I scratched that idea.  And at noon, I thought about taking her out to get pictures.  Being as I have no time management I thought it would be safer to stay home for the day (because we have another busy evening and I need to be here when Big M gets home from school).  I have a bunch of tutu and hairbow orders that I need to have done by tomorrow anyway. I owe everyone who comments and orders a huge “THANK YOU”   (:  I’m blessed that you all like my work and I enjoy doing it.  I’m happy to report I’ve been doing well with that.

Big M has had his first baseball game.  I forgot my camera  ):  He did well, but we really need to work on good sportsmanship and teamwork.  He is so hard on himself.  ):  It really breaks my heart to hear and see the way he treats himself.  Another game today, so I am really hoping we have a better day. 

Here is a run down of my schedule from the last couple days so you all have a better idea of what I’ve been up to.

Last Wednesday – Kids first day back to school from easter break.  I need to meet with M’s teachers because he has a bad attitude.  End of the year of 4th grade and he has started name calling.  I am not happy  ):<

Last Thursday – M had practice, I think.  Maybe that was his scrimmage.  Something was scheduled.  Maybe it even got canceled because we are getting more rain than we have ever had ever before.

Last Friday – Had to make a long trip that day, run a bunch of errands, B had practice.  We didn’t make it home ’till late.  All I did that day was live in my car.  I also had the nephew that day.

Saturday – Big M and B had baseball pics, at different times of course.  More running around.  Pick up 2 of Big M’s friends to sleepover.  FIL’s Birthday party. Remember Little M’s birthday is Thursday.

Sunday – 5:30 a.m.  Tell the boys to go to sleep finally.  Run more errands.  Pop-pop’s birthday party.  Show Little M some birthday party ideas and tell her to choose one.  She chose three.  Princess, Yo Gabba Gabba & Candy Shoppe.  I’ll  stick with the later.

nday – Kids to and from school.  The nephew.  Got kids ready for game and all dressed in layers (because its May here and feels like March) only to have it canceled as I am loading them all in the car.  To Grandma’s and Pop-Pops and to my parents new house and dinner with them.  Also migraine from H—. 

Tuesday – Kids to and from school.  Took Marley, our Boxer to B’s school for show-n-tell.  She was so cute.  Wish I had pictures, but I forgot my camera.  I am drawing a blank on how this evening went.

Wednesday – Kids to school.  The nephew.  a little grocery shopping.  Forgot my checkbook.  Debit card MIA.  Only $5 in cash.  Must leave the store in embarrassment with no groceries.  Pick up B from school and take Big M his glasses.  Go get the groceries.  Look online for invitations.  Get big M and another child from school.  Dress in layers and break out the winter coats and accessories because its only 40 out and Big M has a game. 

There you have it.  I promise I’m not lounging around on the couch eating bon bons (well maybe from 9-11 a.m.  ;)  j k).  As you can see, my blog isn’t the only thing that has suffered from my craziness.  Little M, my 3rd child, always gets the short end of the stick. 

(TMI ALERT)   

 And so does my underwear.  (Don’t worry, they are clean, just ones I used to wear pre-motherhood) 

Now every time I backspace to correct something, when I type it types right over what was previously written.  Sorry bout that but I know you’re all smart enough to figure it out.  ;)  thanks for reading and I hope you all enjoy Little M’s Birthday  =)   Maybe tomorrow if I’m not crazy I’ll do a post for her.  That’s a good idea!!   (:  a la “The Boy”. 

Don’t drink too many margharitas.  (;  (oh I spelled that right.  I’m impressed!!  (:   )

B’s 1st baseball practice

B had her first baseball practice on Friday.  She was so excited, she had on her baseball pants and spikes at 7 am that morning.  Practice was at 5 pm.  When we got there she was shy and clingy and didn’t want to leave my side.  M went to the car to get his glove so he could “coach” and warmed up with her.  She felt a lot better with her big brother there helping her and was soon off to the next “station” without him.  I am so proud of her.  She is so funny and cute.  She is only one of two girls on her team but that doesn’t bother her at all.  And she’s like the most talented kid on her team!  =)  I swear!  I was the only dorky mom taking pictures, and I have a lot for your viewing pleasure!!  :)

  Fielding Grounders Station

  Shes in the all grey.

  I might as well just start calling her (insert famous baseball players name here because I don’t know any).

  Batting Station

  She hit almost every one. 

  Max proud of his sister.  He’s lifting her up with a huge hug!  :)

Running the Bases

  Look at her go!

  Of course, you have to slide into home plate.

  The end of practice group, hand, cheer team name, thing.

And to finish off this fun post.  I know I have promised to never horrify my readers by showing you “What I’m Cooking” posts.  But I will tell you I made the BEST dinner I have ever made in my entire life.  The kids were silent while eating it.  Oh it was amazing.

My Oven Pot Roast with carrots, onions, and red potatoes ( do you really spell potatos like that?  my spell checker changed it.  huh)

and mac and cheese, not homemade, but the fancish-er one. lol  =) 

And please don’t tell me pot roast is easy.  This is coming from someone who has ruined 3.  In a crock-pot.

It’s just one of those days.

Well, I haven’t felt very good the last few days.  It might be from enjoying all the beautiful “springy” weather last weekend and waking up to this yesterday.

Yes folks, that is SNOW.  It’s the end of March.  And we are still getting snow.  Monday it was near 70.  Right this very second its 32.  Not. Fun.  Looking at these pictures makes me shiver.

Well today, I let my girls have fun paint time in my bedroom.  When they went into the bathroom to clean up, I decided it was a fine time to shower.  My girls are almost 4 and 5 years old.  This is what happened.

Actually, the arms were so twisted I couldn’t even open them.  I tried to gently pry them apart and one arm broke off.  Let me tell you, I want to cry, I can not see a thing without my glasses.  I’m too exhausted to yell, but I’m really mad that they were so careless with other people’s property (OPP?).  Well disappointed.  Very disappointed.

This is my lens people.  They are THICK.

I was able to hot glue that broken arm temporally so I could safely drive to my eye doctor.  The nurse was able to salvage them by correctly straightening out the twisted arm and taping the other broken arm.  And they were able to get me in on Monday morning.  I’m relieved I don’t have to wait a week or longer.

Cool.  

At least she was able to temporally fix them to get me through the weekend.  I hope they last.  It’s going to be a good weekend.  Baseball, a Birthday Party for a good friend of my children, Diary of a Wimpy Kid with Big M and B, and a good group of friends.  And I always look forward to Church Sunday mornings. 

Now I’m headed off to pick up a friend of Big M and Wal*Mart to get some craft supplies =)

I hope you all take some time to yourself and enjoy your weekend.  =)
