42 days since my last blog post. What the hell is wrong with me? If you're checking in and reading this now, thanks for not forgetting about me and writing me off.
I love you and I've missed you.
So. School has begun here. Seems to start earlier and earlier every year. For the first time ever all 3 kids are in school. Lauren only goes 3 times a week for 3 hours but I'll take it. I have a wee bit of sadness that my baby has left me but for the most part I'm just enjoying knowing that after bootcamp on those days I don't have to rush home.
Yeah, it kind of sums it up.
This summer was busy with stuff, but I won't bore you with the details. A few little trips here and there, lots of swimming, lots of sibling fighting, a few ear infections, and some of the latest bedtimes these kids have ever known. School nights mean strict bedtimes again, ironed uniforms, lunches made before bed, and out the door at a crazy early hour. Callmecrazy but I like it. Not the early part but the consistency of it all I like very much.
No, this is not mine. I'd have post its everywhere because who has only one thing happening on a Monday? C'mon. Pinterest has good ideas, but realistic? Notsomuch.
I'm an Auntie for the second time! My brother-in-law and sister-in-law are the new parents to little Miss Payton. I'll meet her in a few weeks and I can't wait. I hope my kids are awful and whiney and fighting a lot before I hold new little Payton so that I won't get that baby bug I tend to get when I have a baby in my arms. I'll rely on my own spawn to kill that this time around.
I'm going to play around with the format of my blog which is neither here nor there but I thought I'd mention it. It's been the same for over a year now and even though I NEVER look at my actual blog, I'm kind of over it when I see it. Is there something you hate when you look at a blog? Patterns, contrasting colors, weird font, etc? I'm pretty
boring simple so it may end up looking veeeerrrryyyy similar to how it is now. Whatever.
Honestly, thanks for checking in. I hope your kids have a great beginning of the school year and that you are as happy as I am that it has all begun again. Before I know it I'll be posting my favorite Fall candle and my pumpkin apple bread recipe. Can't wait.
