Eyes wide open...

As I sit here pretending to still be in class because hubby is grumpy and boys are not behaving...I'm thinking about the Dr. Seuss book, I Can Read with my Eyes Wide Shut!

Class. started. tonight.

Does that not say it all....

I really think that I've developed ADHD being a teacher. I CANNOT sit still for three hours straight anymore! This class will be interesting, yet lots of work...

Here is my entertainment during class...
Jack is bored at the moment, however, he likes to bite at my microphone.
Payton has to be right on top of my blanket and sometimes has her head on the computer.

See it's not completely my fault that I can't pay attention!

Stop the clock!

Anybody have any ideas on how to stop the clock? My kiddos are growing up too fast!

When hubby came into my life, Gman was 2 1/2. He was very shy when we first met, hiding behind Dad's leg, but eventually grinned at me and jumped into my arms for a hug. He has always been the cuddly one. We still get random, surprise, attack hugs and he constantly says "I love you!" (especially if his brother is in trouble). However, he doesn't want to hold my hand in congested areas or hug us if anyone is around.


I guess I'll take moments like these when they come and cherish them!

I really didn't think it would happen...
....to be honest I'm ready to be done with the snow.
However, I had fun this morning with these two guys.....

Yes! My hubby did AWESOME for Christmas!

Goodbye 2009! Hello, there 2010!

Wow! It's been a year since I started this blog! I looked back and realized I wasn't so good at keeping my resolutions, let alone posting on a recurring basis. Here's to making 2010 better!
Highlights and happenings of 2009:
* Found out we were expecting and then finding out I had miscarried
* Losing my stepgrandfather to cancer, but knowing he is in a much better place
* Handling financial setbacks caused by the puppetmaster w/grace instead of anger (man, that has taken awhile to be able to do, but I'm so glad we are there!)
* Selling our first house and buying something that fits us
* Stressed out as hubby took on the role of coach for the first time
* Started grad school, again
* B got glasses and survived his first E.R. visit, plus won a trophy w/his baseball team
* B got straight A's!
* Let the door close on one business, but opened the door to another one
My goals for 2010:
(I'm going for short term goals that I can accomplish this year!)
* Cooke will be automated by the end of Febuary (this task was started in Aug. of 08....)
* I will lose 25 pounds by June 1st! (unless we end up pregnant....)
As an ending note, why do the years seem to fly now, but when we were young time seemed to crawl?
