Need A Change

I'm bored. I need something new. Not sure what it is yet, I just know I haven't found it. This is all kind of weird for me, because I like things the "old way".  I am actually not a fan of change. This is why I am having a hard time adjusting to the way of life with an older boy, no naps and staying up later. We have had the same schedule for 5 years and now things are changing. Kind of freaks me out. Between new schedules and not being able to feel the fung shui of our house, something needs to be different.

I have rearranged the family room about 462 times since we moved. I have moved the boys rooms around 3 times in 2 weeks. I started by moving Colton from the shared room to his own, putting Christian and Connor together. That wasn't working out. So then I moved Christian out of Connor's room into a space in my room. I hated that! Now they are back to the original set up. The good news is that I can take apart and put back together a crib in just under 20 minutes.

I just made my hair appointment. It's another week out still. Probably a good thing. If I had gotten in right away, I might have done something drastic.

We had some visitors for Connor's party, but they stayed in a hotel. Next weekend we are having our first overnight visitors. I have major work to do in the guest room. It tends to become the dumping ground for anything you need out of the way.

What I really need today is a nap! Another odd thing for me, as I am not a napper. I sleep really well at night. But last night it stormed, which means  I slept GREAT! But with it still raining this morning, it just makes me sleepy. Plus Connor is having his 2 buddies over after school so it will be a mad house here in just a few short hours. So maybe I can a 15 minute power nap in...then it's time to scrub some toilets! How's that for the good life?

Hope your Friday is more interesting than mine!

Next week is the final week of school. I am kind of sad to leave some great teachers. Maybe it's actually fear of entertaining the troops for 2 and 1/2 months! Our June has filled up quite nicely. Colton will do swim lessons for 2 weeks and Connor has tennis lessons for 1 week (Mark insisted on the tennis!). Connor and his buddy Andrew will go to zoo camp for 4 days. We are taking a trip to visit the fam for a week. And Connor's buddy from TX is coming for a few days! July will be about relaxing in the blowup pool. YEAH RIGHT! A 5 year old, 3 year old, and 1 year old relax for all of 2 minutes!! It will about playing outside in the morning and arts and crafts in the afternoon.

My scale is moving at the slowest rate possible! It's hard to stay/get motivated at this pace. Doing jumping jacks for a good weigh in in a couple of days!!!

We are working to make the scale go down too.
Good luck!

I am feeling the same way as you are with school coming to an end! Four boys to entertain ALL day long!
