Look at me!! I'm on my blog! I kept having it on my list and passing it by because I'm so far behind that it stresses me out. So I'm just making myself sit down and type a few sentences to get over the hurdle. I wish I could just let it go, but I'm not a journaler and don't really have any other way (other than Instagram--thank heavens for that) of keeping a record of this sweet, busy, hard, important time in our lives. Every time I see my blog books I feel sick inside at the idea that I won't have any more. So...here I go.
I'm going to try for some catch up posts over the next few weeks that will include:
why I'm pregnant with #6
why this stupid knee surgery has been such a hard recovery physically and emotionally
trips to Utah, Canada, Texas, New Mexico, Seattle
where my kids are at in their lives right now (maybe the most important...I don't want to forget)
I'm sure none of that sounds exciting, but I don't think anyone is even reading this anymore, so it's just for me, anyway.
So I'm majorly patting myself on the back for just writing something down today!
And for the sake of journaling I'll just do this little exercise:
Ryan is at work, which is loves and keeps him very busy. He's probably thinking about what small business venture he can take on when he completes his MBA IN FOUR WEEKS!
I just threw up my breakfast smoothies (9 months of pregnancy nausea!! NEVER happened in any previous pregnancy!! Super awesome!!)
Emma is at high school, which she loves but is still trying to figure out how hard she has to study to attain the goals she's set for herself.
Gabe is in 8th grade. Who knows what class. Do some moms know their kids schedules? I didn't even see him this morning because it was his early jazz band day.
Jane is in her 5th grade class. She's probably chatting with her friend Maci. But not if Mr Rachoy is wanting quiet. She's way too big of a rule follower for that.
Seth is surely talking regardless of what his teacher is doing. Luckily, she had him last year and gets him and LOVES him and so she's probably handling it awesomely. Which is not something I can claim for myself. I don't handle him awesomely.
Faith is playing on the Starfall app on my phone while I type this. She's wearing her silver Sunday shoes which makes her very happy. We are heading out for some errands at the mall and I think running errands with a 5 year old Faith is one of my top 3 favorite activities right now. Yay for missing the kindergarten cut off date!
