So much for blogging...
Farewell to the blogging world for now! Maybe when the long winter months set in, I will have more time....I really have a lot to say, just no time to blog it! I will try to visit my blogging buddies every once in awhile!
Where have I gone?
Nicholas is testing for his yellow belt this week...I'm worried, and don't even want to watch. I hope he proves me wrong! Swimming is going awesome, he can swim in the deep end now, and swam the length of the pool today!!! He has joined cub scouts, so we have two meetings a month and are now selling popcorn in this 90 degree weather!!!
Alex doesn't like anything. PERIOD. No swimming, no karate, no gym class, no baseball, no soccor. Nothing. Don't even try. The boy wants to pick on his brother for the rest of his life.
I have signed up for room mom for Alex's class, and reading mom for Nicholas' class twice a month. And both boys have their field trips this month. I don't think I can go with Alex's though.
Keeping up with all this stuff requires a lot of planning, and organizing. Oh and remember I do have a 16 month old to haul around to all these activities or I'm dropping of with a good mommy friend of mine.
I'm worn out just thinking about all the stuff I do. But you know it's nice to be busy, it's nice having a clean house, and it's nice to be a mom of a toddler & preschooler and feel like I finally know what I'm doing!
Future Mountain Climber?
Okay, I can wait, because he is really cute and funny. But it's just annoying!
It's the first day of the rest of his life....

Summer Miss List
Things I will miss:
- Sleeping in until whenever Tyler wakes up.
- Lazy, laidback mornings.
- Going to the local waterpark.
- Having a free schedule to do whatever we wish.
- Seeing Nicholas (well, give me a few weeks of all day school)
- Tyler at age one, walking, babbling, peekaboo, bringing me odd things, waving bye-bye with both hands, getting his shoes to go bye-bye etc, etc.
I am happy for summer to be over, but I will miss it! We had a good time, and it flew by! I really thought the kids would be driving me more crazy then they actually did. Having a pool helped, getting out for playdates daily and going to the waterpark kept us all pretty sane. And, surprisingly, Alex has gotten better over the summer. I think in the spring Alex went through the new baby adjustment and was just being a horror. He's not such an annoying child anymore. Although I wish he would quit picking on Nicholas so much, but I'm sure I'll be saying that for the next 30 years!
And things I'm totally looking forward to are:
- Dropping off Alex for his first day. That means I will only have Tyler.
- Halloween, Tyler's first :)
- Fall fun - raking leaves, watching Tyler explore them, the kids playing in the fall.
- Christmas fun - snow (if we're lucky), decorating, fires.
- Seeing Nicholas & Alex learn more things.
- Playgroups without the older kids to worry about.
Summer is ending :0)
The last few weeks I have been trying to take advantage of the lazy summer days left. I've been addicted to Lifetime movies. I haven't watched one in years, and in the last 3 weeks I've watched more than 10 of them. Should I be admitting that? Don't get me wrong, I don't stay home all day watching them, just in the morning while I drink coffee & prepare breakfast or in the afternoons during naps. I will miss that part of school starting! I like having mornings where we aren't rushed to do anything!
Nicholas & Alex have been into the computer like a bad addiction! Playing Lego Racers sometimes 5 hours a day. Nicholas has mastered all the tracks & has opened all the levels because he's that good! The boy can stear with the arrow buttons on the keyboard! I tried it and could hardly get through half the track before quiting. I've been trying to keep the boys away from traditional electronic games for as long as I could. I've been aiming for the Leapster and the V-smile or preschool/kindergarten games for the computer. With Nicholas being 7 now, he just has little interest in those games anymore, so I gave in and let him have at it. So the kids took over the computer for the summer. When Nicholas first started playing the game it was all he could think & talk about. But now the newness has worn off and I can actually claim my computer back for parts of the day. LOL!
We have filled the summer of swimming, playdates, and more swimming! Tyler is starting to enjoy the water more. Speaking of, he slept in this morning and is finally waking. Pause...... Tyler is walking like a champ now. He is much happier when we go to the water parks & the park. No more hurt knees. He especially enjoys playing outside and taking walks down the street. He is still a picky eater
We lost two dwarf african water frogs in the past two weeks. I was a bad adoptive mom for them. We had them in a little plastic bowl, transfered them into a smal hexagon aquarium. Guess they found the dime sized feeding hole and jumped out!!! After the first one, I taped the hole shut, that didn't phase the second frog :( We do have a gold fish and a tetra about the same size as the frogs, so I doubt they got eaten. I am still very sad we don't have them anymore. They are in froggie heave and we will miss them. And YES I'm thinking of actually going out and buying more. This time I will have to keep them in seperate tanks & keep and secure lid on them.
Anyway, I am looking forward to the cool days of fall...it can't arrive any faster! But I think we have at least another month of this hot weather, so I will try to enjoy it as much as possible!
Is drinking during the day allowed?
It makes me KIND of miss my drug days. The carefree days of planning an evening of recreational drugs, underage drinking and being irresponsible. I do miss it! Would I trade my life now for it, no way in hell. But I look back and see life really was good then!
So I guess in a way, I'm taking up drinking to get away from life...if only for a few hours on Friday, I can feel good, carefree and irresponsible!
