Trying to get back to blogging. I started another blog but I just don’t like it. So maybe I will stick with this one. It’s been almost a year since I started this one. It’s funny how much time I have for message boards but I don’t have time for a blog. Hopefully I can make the time. I think it will be really good for me to get some of my life down. I suck at keeping a real journal.
I’m having a craptastic week this week. After my life was flipped upside for a moment I had to pick myself up and figure things out on my own for a change. I realized I rely to much on other peoples opinions to help me make decisions. So I made an adult decisions about my life and my childrens life all on my own. YAY! Of course the moment I mentioned it to someone there was a lot of negativity but I can’t let that get to me. I have to be comfortable in my ability to make a good decision and not let the naysayers get me down. Hopefully this is a step in the right direction. Did I mention I suck at making decisions? Like I can’t even decide what shoes to buy, what to eat for dinner, or what color to paint my nails without asking someone else. I can’t do that anymore. I want to be independent and be comfortable and confident in myself.
My kids are doing great. Duke will be in kindergarten in less than 9 months and LA will be starting preschool. They are growing up way too fast. They are great kids though. Full of life and happy most of the time. Just like every other kid they are like sponges and soak up all this information. If you talk to Duke about trains he can tell you specific trains in the US and where they typically travel too. His obsession with trains has gone beyond Thomas and into real trains. He has renamed my van the 844. Here is a picture of the Union Pacific 844
His new favorite shoe is Extreme trains on the history channel. I think before this obsession dies down we are going to take him on the Amtrak to Chicago. He would love that. And I have to admit I am very excited about it too.
Now LA on the other hand has many obsessions. She loves dance class. If you ask her to do any of her ballet moves she will do them for you. Dance class is the highlight of her week. She’s also into other girly things such as babies, princesses, and stuff animals. But she is a little bit of a tomboy. How can she not be with a big brother?
My parenting skills are lacking a little bit lately so I am ordering some parenting books the read. I am hoping that my kids and I can come to some sort of peace.
Now I must go start my day. I am hoping to get my room cleaned and vacuumed and the study cleaned and vacuumed. I have to go to the dentist this afternoon to fix my tooth so hopefully I can fit it all in.
