And the Crazy Starts....Now...

Life is gonna be C.R.A.Z.Y starting this past week up until about the end of June!  Ha!

My schedule is as follows:
This past week B had to dress up for her Ballet and Tap pictures.
Then Finn had baseball practice Wednesday...but he came home sick {threw up on the bus ride home...poor bus driver!}
That night I had to teach Ladies Bible I've been doing that for the past 8 weeks {along with an hour long DVD...putting not all that much responsibility on me}, but for 2 weeks I will lead without the help of a pre-planned lesson.  That is stressful!!
Thursday night I spoke at a dinner put on by the women of our church.  Every third Thursday of the month we have Ladies Fellowship at church....we have a time of prayer, food, fellowship and a guest speaker...well, this time I was the speaker!  I was super excited, but very nervous!  I was told to speak between 15-20 minutes...well, every time I read through my testimony it would take at LEAST 25 mintues!!  Yikes.  But I knew once I got up there I would probably talk way faster than I would when I was all comfy in my chair.  Which I did...but I feel like I did a pretty good job!  I make em laugh, I make em tear up, I was honest and transparent...exactly what I wanted to do!

Around 4:30 Saturday morning I was overtaken by an AWFUL, EXCRUCIATING stomach bug!!  It was terrible....the hubs said it was the most violent puking he had ever seen!!  And trust me....I am feeling it today.  I never could have imagined how many muscles you strain during the "throws" of throwing up!!  I can't laugh, sneeze, cough or breathe deeply!  I am so lucky to have such great family and friends who stepped up to help me with the kiddos on Saturday.  My mom and MIL took care of the big three (shuttling them to and from baseball games and lunch) and my bff Ashlee took Owen for the day.  I am so grateful for that....I needed the time to recover.  My stomach was cramping on and off for hours.  I am still not completely okay...hoping by tomorrow I will be back to normal, just in time for.....

A big dental appointment tomorrow afternoon.  I am not dreading it, but I'm certainly not looking forward to it!  Ha!  We never talked about gas or a pill to calm me down before the I am sort of uneasy about being fully awake for everything.  I will be praying BIG for a smooth appointment.

This week is the last week of preschool {and my job teaching 2 year olds}, so it will be super busy!  Preschool graduation is Thursday night....this year I will have to sit with my class instead of my family.  I can't believe my baby girl only has one more year before Kindergarten...sniff, BIG sniff.

Friday morning is Finley's graduation from Kindergarten.  Again...sniff, sniff.  I won't cry, I won't cry.  Right? games. Breslyn's 4th birthday party!  First...SHE'S 4!!  Second...I love planning parties, but the follow through is brutal!  But it's always worth it...ALWAYS!!

June 1st....B's four year check-up.
June 4-8 is Kids Who Care mini camp!!!  This year Finn and B are going!  Now to brag on my Momma a minute....she works at the camp each year and this year she is giving up her entire paycheck so that both kiddos can go to camp!!  Such a great Gaga!!  They are very lucky to have her!  We love you Gaga!!
June 15th....Dental appointments for Joey, Aidan and Finley AND B has dress rehearsal at 7p.m.
June 16th....B's Dance Recital!!!  So exciting, but I am stressed over getting her hair and makeup just right!!
June 20th...My parents, Grandma, Aidan and Finley are leaving for our annual family reunion.  I will miss the boys, but the following weekend I am going over to my friend Julie's house for a scrapbook weekend!!  Yay!

Whew....I am super tired just looking at my next few weeks!  ;}

If you made it through this entire post...way to go...I know it was probably super boring!!

Have a wonderful week friends! 


  1. Not boring! Life!
    1. You didn't LOOK like'd you'd had a stomach bug! Good job this morning!
    2. I've said for year that I just need really good drugs to make it through May and June. I'll share.

  2. Hi Ashley!
    I just saw your comment on my blog, it's so nice to meet you! I love meeting other Texas bloggers and I'm so glad you left a comment. I'm hoping there will be a blogger conference nearby someday so we could meet other bloggers in real person!
