Well hello there! I'm here, just busy busy busy with the busy season at work. Been putting in some overtime and readjusting to the summer schedule with the kiddos. Hell I tell ya.
Corey and I had a hard time the last week with no kids, we were not motivated at all. Of course it doesn't help when the temperature was over 100 the first 2 days, then in the 80s Wednesday, then 70s, 60s, 60s, etc... 40 degree temperature change within days. Crazy!
The 6th of this month began the T-Ball season, and Alexis and Kayla's dad signed them up for it up in Woodville. Without talking to me about it. Insert irritation here! I find out a week before practices start, and he didn't think it was a big deal. Ummm... yeah. Let's not go there, 'kay?
So I went to the first practice/game, they are held every Monday night. The first one was during the 100 degree day, so the kids were not happy. I'm surprised they didn't call the practice off! So I get there, and it turns out the Andy's girlfriend Jenny is the coach, and his mother is the assistant coach. Lovely. Just what I wanted. To top it off, his mother asks me if I want to help out since I was going to be at every game. I said sure, no problem, it's for my kids, I'll do it. his girlfriend wasn't sure how to react, which made me do my happy dance. Silly, I know, but still.
I cried when I left my girls, and it didn't help that Alexis cried as well. She wanted me to bring her home with me, so I had to explain that even thought I wanted to so badly, I couldn't, as this was her time with her dad. She kept yelling "I love you Mommy!" "I'll miss you Mommy!" over and over. My heart cracked. I had a hard couple days after that.
As my last post stated, the 8th was my parents 20th wedding anniversary. Corey and I went up there last weekend and took them out to dinner, just the 4 of us. It was a quiet ride, lemme tell you. No kids yelling in the backseat, none asking for help on a word in a book or on a game, etc... Quiet, but bittersweet.
Since my parents hadn't figured out where they wanted us to take them, I decided on Famous Dave's. Yum!
I think that's enough typing for now. Don't want to overwhelm you all with facts and pictures. Will post more this week!
