Just another manic Monday

Kind of silent share

So we have a lot going on, I have a lot to catch you up on. But I feel bad that this site has kind of fallen to the side. I swear, it’s coming back! I love to post pictures with my commentary and for some reason I don’t have enough space to do that. Lol! So I’m working on updating and getting my other site up and running. I’ve actually had it for a few years now, just had it connected to this one. Because…. too much work. More on that later, for now. Enjoy this adorable photo of D-boy and mKK watching the girls play soccer this past weekend.

Happy Thursday Folks! Iiona

Just another Manic Monday…

Yesterday we went to a park and took pictures. I’m practicing my favorite meditative craft. I love capturing a moment to be able to look back at it later and remind me of the time we spent doing things that make us smile.

My goal was to get a family picture, but because of the location it was too windy for me to set my camera up on a tripod. Our kiddos are such good sports, they were starving and I kept asking to give me a few more minutes.

This guy right here… I love capturing all of the little details. Can you see the freckles? Miss Marie has freckles as well. At first I thought it was dirt spots, LOL! Don’t judge me. I wasn’t use to that type of thing… DSC_3900

I (slightly against my will) gave up the camera to be the subject. It was hard, but I did it anyways. LOL! DSC_3914

We then moved over to the bridge and Mouse realized that her shirt was perfect for catching air and acting as if she were flying.

Either way it goes, we got some pretty decent pictures. We enjoyed the nice weather and we smiled. And then I fell asleep on the couch before everyone and woke up with a banging headache. Le sigh…

Have you ever?

The last 3 nights I have been so emotionally full and drained all at once. By the end of the night I can barely keep my eyes open long enough to say goodnight to the kiddos, let alone make it to bed in a timely fashion. Normally, this wouldn’t be a big deal. I would just let my body take over and head to bed. The issue as of late is I am about a month in a half behind in paperwork for our foster kiddos and I have been “going to do the girls hair” for about a solid 3 weeks now.

Doing the girls hair isn’t an easy feat. As in, we are talking about mid back length naturally curly 4c hair… Le sigh! Basically what that means is tons of detangling that does absolutely nothing because its tangled before I even get to the end of the hairs that I combing. Not complaining, because I am rather proud of myself for helping their hairs to grow that long. Just saying, its a lot of work.

Tonight I did Miss Marie’s head of hairs, because I tend to neglect hers more then her sisters. That was the longest process and I had to trim the ends. Lets just say, i just finished. I was about to head to bed when I remembered I hadn’t blogged for the night. And I’m just remembering I didn’t blog last night. Oh well, one day out of 30…

Today has been a great day, Miss Marie had a state gymnastics meet right outside of south Austin. She did her best performance yet, but still not enough to get her to Level 4… But we were able to hang out with close gymnastics friends and Mouse went with so it was a girls weekend. One where I’ve officially spent WAYYYY too much money. Yesterday Mouse’s Nutcracker family had a wine tasting fundraiser. Lets just say I walked away with three new wines to try out and a fe other things, ones I was for sure I would get out bid on. But didn’t… LOL!

I swear one of these days I will learn my lesson.

Anyways, todays truth is…. I have reached the stage in life where I fall asleep before my kiddos. Its down right depressing, and makes me chuckle all at the same time. I am looking forward to when I reach the stage of having energy again.

Buenos Noches!

SXSW

I LOVE that my baby sis came out to Tejas to visit with us. She even dragged me out past my bedtime to go to a show. Little did I know how close (in proximity) to someone I grew up listening to I would be. I was like a little kid in a candy store. I couldn’t get enough of her or it.

I Love me some Brandy and always have! So when she comes strolling out talmbout, Hey! I almost had a heart attack, and I’m pretty sure my sister had bruises on her arm from me slapping her so hard. HA!

Anyways, it was a great night. Enjoy 🙂
