a little update

So sometimes I go a week or two and then try to catch up all at once. You have a problem with that? No? Good, we can proceed. ;)

Last week I started working at my job in the mornings so I could take Felix in the afternoons over to my brother and sis-in-law's house to help out. Their nanny gave her 2-weeks notice but then never showed up again.

I've been tag-teaming it with Linda (sis-in-law) so everything can get done. It really is quite necessary to have two adults around at all times.

There are appointments and sports (soccer for all! Well, 4 of the kids have soccer twice a week - different days and different times and different places - makes things interesting), chores and homework assignments, trying to keep sanity and make lots of snacks for lots of kids without losing any cool.

I guess it's a really good thing to find out I'm not cut out to have a large family before I actually have one, right?

I'm feeling a bit frazzled lately. What with two part-time jobs, trying to clear out the downstairs so we can make some much-needed updates (deep cleaning combined with mold removal and a few other fixes), extra calling stuff (still doing scouts and nursery, meetings and extra nursery duties), and a generally busy fall (I really thought there would be more socializing in the summer...), I almost wish I could get put on bed rest so I could take some time off it all.

I keep thinking, "there's no rest for the wicked," all the time trying to stop at just: "there's no rest." It's not really working, dang it.

Tagged, eh? Hmmm. I have all sorts of quirks, but I'm not sure I want them in print for the world to see...
