What You Do

I'm up today before any of my blogging buddies have updated, so I guess that leaves updating my own blog. How boring:)

Trick or Treat. Mmmmmmmmmm. Bowls of endless candy. Yummmmmmmm.

Oh, sorry, where was I? Yes, it's Halloween. We are having a "scary" dinner with some friends tonight. Since our little ones are, well, little, our scary dinner consists of spaghetti with eyeballs, scary salad, goulish garlic bread, and Frankenstein cupcakes. (As if they won't have enough sugar shortly after dinner!) After dinner it's off to a local retirement home to trick or treat and then to the "good" neighborhood where there are full sized candy bars given to Mamas, I mean those cute little kids.

Well, I'm off to round up my zoo supplies. This year we have a tiger and a zebra. So cute!

A Full Eight Hours

That was how much sleep I got last night! Both boys stayed asleep all night and delighted us with the pleasant dispositions today. It was such a wonderful change from the previous couple of weeks. A nice breath of fresh air.

Currently, I am typing right now with little interruptions from my oldest. I set him up at the dining room table with some paper and paints and asked him not to yell if he wanted me, but to come into the office to talk with me. He has found every opportunity to do just that. He even came in to tell me that he drank his paint water. Hmmmm, I wonder how my kids pick up germs:)

Wow, Okay, It's Almost November

So, there are many days that I feel like I should just post a little update. Something small to tell all those readers out there just what I'm doing or have done or am wishing I had gotten done. And then another day passes and I'm still in the same boat. It is still floating, mind you, however, I think my feet are getting quite wet . . .

Well, here's a little update:

Our kiddos have taken to waking up sometime between 2am and 4am. Sometimes they will go back to sleep, but often times (like this morning for instance) my ever-loving, always sacrificing husband gets up and either plays with them or vainly tries to sleep through their playing upstairs. It is OLD and it NEEDS TO STOP!!!!

Part of the reason that Ben is so intent on helping out during the night is because I am 8 weeks pregnant and in full swing of hormonal woes. I am emotional, sick spontaneously, and tired 99% of the time. It's great. I love being pregnant. Can I do this again?! (If you can't hear the sarcasm, please stop reading!)

Homeschooling happened for about two weeks. It wasn't working for Treefrog (I needed to switch up my curriculum a bit) and then my dad came for an extended stay. That was the hardest three weeks of my life. I felt like such a failure for stopping school. Plus, I was an emotional wreck dealing with my high-maintenance dad on a day-to-day basis.

I think that brings you up to speed. I'll try to do better at posting as long as my life continues on a normal sort of path. I also want to spend more time on the good. Maybe I'll even post twice today so that a negative post isn't the only thing you get!

p.s. We are VERY excited to welcome a new life into ours. Treefrog loves looking at the baby's picture from the ultrasound and I love showing it to him. We talk about whether the baby is happy in Mama's tummy and what he/she is doing in there. It is wonderful to watch him think about the baby!
