Life flies by….

My life has been one crazy roller coaster since our little trip to Idaho.  Logan wrecked our car….. I like to say it that way because it gets him all riled up.   A dude hit the back of our car and that is all she wrote of that vehicle.  So we have had to:
# 1.Buy a new van.  There I said it, we have a van okay.  We are going to have four, count them four kids.  Thus we have a minivan.  
#2.  Logan started his new job as a professor up at Cleveland State.  Booya. 
#3.  Get a new place to live.  We are currently in a two bedroom apartment the size of a porta potty.  
#4.  Tulie had her tonsils out and tubes in her ears.  That was awful!  She lost four pounds.  That is a lot for a little girl!!  But she is doing wonderfully now.  Strangely I think she's a happier girl. 
#5. All that and I had a zillion shoots to squeeze in between it all.
Not to mention we found out we were having a girl!!!!  We are so excited.

Sometimes I feel so overwhelmed… trying to be everything to everyone.  Trying to be a working mom that isn't working so it doesn't interfere with hubby and kids.  I felt bad today as I made dinner that I don't ever cook anything new and then I thought, screw it, I worked all day today in one way or another.  At least they aren't getting cereal.   I have to be okay with "falling short"….. no, with the me of now.  Be okay that you read to the kids, played at the park, sent emails, edited a shoot, posted a blog, made dinner, talked to your mother on the phone, did half the laundry and dare I say read a little in your book.  Yeah, if that is falling short, bring it.
