Really quick.

In my crazy, hectic life right now things are moving at warp speed. Take this week for example, I have a Chapter Outline due Sunday, I'm going out with my friends on Wed (I haven't seen these girls together in forever, so I'm not skipping out), so I'm going to try and get my outline for class in Thursday. I have a test that is available starting Friday, so I want to do it on Friday afternoon before the weekend because this Saturday I would like to go to Austin to a TCEA conference about Iphones & then possibly shopping. Plus I have an Staff Parish Relations meeting for chuch on Sunday, and somewhere in all this, I have to study for my GRE test in four weeks. ****GULP****

My little girl is now obsessed with babies. She calls everything from a stuffed cat to a baby doll her "Babeee". Landon is learning things every day, and today we asked him to eat 10 bites of his burger before he was allowed to play a wii game. He was eating bites and I had a hard time keep a straight face with that one.

Gotta get back to my homework and work on my outline if I want to get it in before Thursday...listening to my husband yelling at the tv and the Dallas Cowboys...

So big

My kids are getting so big. Emma's learning new words every day. Her favorite thing is "bubble bath" & do a little dance. She'll put a little stuffed cat & "tickle" it while giggling & saying "tickle, tickle". It's so adorable!!

Landon is learning new things everyday too. It makes him feel great when Emma rushes up to him after school & hugs him tight. He notices little things now. Nothing gets past his little ears & sharp eyes.

Ahhh Fall! Back to School Challenges

A low with a lot of rain came through on Thursday and has hung around till today. It's been absolutely wonderful considering we've had all the windows open for several days and just the fans on. This house just feels better when the windows are open and the cool breeze comes through. Don't ask me why, I just feel it.

I can't wait for the cool mornings of fall, when you need your jacket for the first few hours of the morning. It makes me think of football season, band trips to football games, hanging out with friends, and back to school.

Speaking of back to school. The last week in August I started my online program for my master's. I'm trying to adjust to working full time, being a good wife, mother, Christian woman, student, and keeping a home. I also have to study for the GRE that I have to take and pass in October to continue to be in the graduate program.

I am trying to manage my time better, and as many mom's can testify, it's HARD.
These are some things I'm trying to manage my time a little better:
1. I'm trying to lay out outfits the night before
2. pack the diaper bag the night before
3. Spend time daily with God and in prayer otherwise this plan won't work
4. Cut back on some volunteer activities
5. Learn to say NO to things that won't benefit me or my family
6. Let go of some of the less important housework in order to spend time with my husband & kids
7. Not neglect my exercise program because it's what keeps me healthy & sane
8. Carve out time to spend with my husband
9. Get up early to work on school work so my evenings can be dedicated to my family

I may need to print this list out and stick it to my fridge door or somewhere else I can see it everyday to remind myself of everything I need to do try to "balance" my life as much as possible.

Crazy life

Between job, kids, husband, school, and the house it gets a little crazy "in my world" as Landon says. Today my goal is to go workout & then come home & work on my outline for class. I need to get better at managing my time, especially now that I'm in school again. I'm learning how to say "no" to things in an effort to do that.
