Sometimes all the things happen at once

I’m sitting here in my exploded toy store of a living room hoping that sometime, sometime we might start to get a little caught up. I try to have that thought without a crazy laugh escaping because, well, things have been a little crazy here.

January was my month to rest and recuperate, and I did, but we still ran somewhere every single weekend with birthday parties and extracurricular activities. February was filled with job interviews as Bryan was recruited seemingly out of the blue. Then, as we did all of the things for change there, we also visited family in the cities, attended the girls’ choir concert, went on an overnight to the zoo, and started potty training. These are all good things, but it was a lot. Oh, and the week we started potty training, Emma got a pretty serious pinched nerve in her shoulder, so we shuffled off to the chiropractor as well as trying to treat symptoms while potty training. March has flown by with the aftermath of potty training and pinched nerves, a trip to the Mall of America, as well as actually transitioning to the new job and a week-long episode of what must have been food poisoning for the guys of the house. We also got our taxes done. All of this has taken place with exactly one week of vacation from homeschool. It was a ridiculous amount of stuff.

And it was even more ridiculous because my pants are starting not to fit for the best of reasons, we’re expecting #4 in October! So, we’ve wrangled all of these activities along with fatigue and morning sickness. I don’t recommend potty training or allowing your family members to get food poisoning while suffering from morning sickness by the way.

So that’s what’s been going on here. What’s new with you?

    Wow! That’s quite the bombshell to drop at the end of a post. Congratulations!

    Nothing has been going on with us…at least in comparison!

    Well, besides you almost dying this winter, but that’s old news, right?
    I decided to go with the stealth approach this time. Seemed like the thing to do.
