So updates: Kids are still being kids. They had so much fun at Halloween. Even Riley, once he figured out that behind every door was a piece (or two) of candy then he was full out running to each house! He was sooo funny! We had bought a lot of candy to hand out at our house and then at the last minute the hubs and I decided that we both wanted to walk around with the kids... so, not only do we have 2 huge bags full of candy from the boys but we have every single piece of candy that we had bought to hand out! Holy crow! I'm sure I'll gain at least another 20lbs due to this! :-( secretly I'm loving all the Reeses' Peanut Butter Cups though! ha!
School is keeping me busy. I had my first test today for this course and rocked a B! Yippy for me! Monday I have to turn in a 5 to 8 page research paper, which of course I haven't started yet, so you can see what my weekend will consist of! Graduation is so close I can nearly taste it! We all had to submit photos and songs to be played during a slide show, I'm so excited to see it. It was a blast pulling up pictures from the last couple of years and it made me realize that I will actually miss being at school with all of these new friends!
Horse: well the horse is a horse of course! I still have her, she's still for sale. I rode last Sunday and she did great, handled new experiences with grace & dignity.... rode her today, and she disgraced herself. On the positive side she has gained back nearly all the weight she lost since I bought her, she's starting to look much better!
Husband: he's home playing the "mr mom" role and it frustrates me! Bless the man's heart cause he's trying so hard to be helpful, does dishes, cleans up, but he puts everything in the wrong place! I find myself being (excuse my language here) quite bitchy with him! I know I'm doing it but I just can't stop! I think the stress is getting to me.
Friends: well here's an interesting topic for me. I don't know even where to go with this one. I love my friends, really I do. BUT I feel like I need some new ones. Why is it that no friends ask us to dinner? or to a park? or something involving our kids? Seriously the only invites that we get are to go to bars or parties. Now I realize that my husband and I are a fun couple to be around, lets face it, we're the life of the party! (I might be exaggerating a little here) but we do have kids and we're grown ups and sometimes it would be nice to have friends who understood that. What do you guys do that have kids? How do you make it all happen?
Wow... so I started this post thinking I had nothing to say, and also saying that I wouldn't whine.... sorry that I lied! Hopefully I didn't bore you all too much!
Enjoy the pictures that I've randomly posted, these are some of my favorites. I either like the way I look, or have such great memories of the time/place it was taken... so between each paragraph of whining I thought I'd at least share some happiness! :-)
