Hamster Wheel

Have I ever mentioned that I am not a morning person? If I could go to bed at 2am and get up at 10am I would be in Heaven. I remember the days when my oldest son was a bitty baby. We would start are day slow. I would just lay in bed with my sleepy newborn and cuddle with him, stare at him, and feed him. I had all of his baby supplies right next to the bed so there was no reason to even get up. It was lovely.

Today my alarm clock went off at 5:45am. I had to pop out of bed to begin the day in order to fit everything in. Not so lovely. I am tired. I feel like a hamster in a wheel running in circles but getting no where. Yeah, I always get somewhere. My kids are learning and growing and that is what matters but as for me..... hmmmmmm.... well I feel like a hamster.

Run all day, put the kids to bed, clean, prepare Makenzie's stuff, maybe sit and watch some TV, and go to bed.... early. Any free time in my life is spent running errands to keep this house going or cleaning which is a mute point because no matter how hard I try to get everything done it is never ending. Yeah... I am whining.... but really something has to give.

I really think that I am having the hardest time adjusting to the new school schedule. I am hoping it gets easier.

Makenzie had a great day today. She is feeling much better. She did have a couple of moments where her cold flared up but nothing to big!

Kenzie had a wonderful day at school. She really seems to enjoy school and is getting used to her new classromm and friends. When we got to school today the other students lit up when Makenzie "walked" in the door! She got to throw a bean bag to her friend and catch as well. I had to explain to the gym teacher that the kids could accually throw it to her instead of handing it to her. She does have 3 brothers!!! There is no gentle in Makenzie!

Makenzie even decided to color today! She hled onto that red crayon and just smiled as she moved it actoss the paper. Makenzie giggled when she drew on the table. Her teacher and I laughed so hard at the idea Makenzie could be naugty and think it was so funny!

I brought the iPad to school in order to show her teacher all of the cool things it could do and how it could aid in her education. Also as of yesterday Makenzie has an aide! Yippy! I am getting closer to a kid free time everyday!

We enjoyed lunch with a friend and then Sam's Club returning home just in time for the boys to help carry in the groceries.

I have a lot to be thankful for! I will make it to the other side! It has just been a bit harder then I thought it would be but this is the right thing for Makenzie. Her teacher (that only works in the mornings)is wonderful. It is just really too early for this night owl!

Time to make formula and get to bed. I need to get up and jump back in my wheel soon!

Believe... Prayer Works!
