I haven't blogged since February. That should tell you just how incredibly busy my life has been :)
Let's see....March found my daughter and I at her national cheer competition. It was 3 days of mommy/daughter time and we had a blast...mostly LOL. The 5AM fire alarm at the hotel wasn't on my "fun" list. The fact that I didn't grab my room key, shoes, or coat kind of stunk (DID grab my daughter's shoes and coat). Apparently, someone in the hotel burnt their breakfast and set off the alarm.
Here's a pic of her during the competition (she's the flyer) and of her eating at Hard Rock. I ordered her an adult steak meal (she loves steak) and they messed up her order, so we got her meal free :) Good times...
We were also on Spring Break in March and I took the kids bowling - we had an absolute BLAST!!!
April brought the 6th birthday of my "baby boy" and the loss of his two front teeth - which still have not grown in and I think he looks absolutely adorable!!
We also had the twins' second piano recital last month - proud momma here...
And now it's May...wow. I have been really focusing on simplifying life lately. It seems as though you have to make a bigger mess before you can get to the simplicity, but I'm getting there....slowly, but surely. I'm focusing less on caring for others, which don't get me wrong, is a good thing, but not when you do it to excess - which I have been (people pleaser here...). I quit my position as vocal/choir director at my church effective the end of the month. I'm focused on the kids and getting myself back on track. My eating has not been good and I've not been running much - so that needs to change. Once school is out, I'll definitely be getting more runs in.
So....I'm pulling out my purple nail polish and my lip gloss and facing the world a stronger, happier woman. :)
