I haven’t had a lot of time to write this week, or actually lately. I’ve been trying to catch up on a lot of review work, the house work and spending time with the family. I have also started sleeping more…like on a regular basis and have been getting up earlier than I usually would. Alexander and I have been getting out more during the day while the big kids are at school and we’ve really just been enjoying our time together.
Last week, a member of my extended family suffered a great loss, so I was dealing with the emotions that brought out in me in addition to all of the other emotions I have been experiencing lately. And I have been an emotional basket case….once again. The Alex and I have decided, we want another child. This has been a great debate between the two of us for the last year and we have both gone back and forth changing our minds and now, now we are both on the same page and we want one more. One more little munchkin running around and our family will be complete. So yes, we are trying to get me knocked up!
Also, as I mentioned last month, we have been working had to pay off old debt and start rebuilding our credit and we have been doing a great job at it. We are very hopeful that this year is the year we become homeowners, however we are aware that we might not be able to do it without the help of our family but are keeping our fingers crossed that we can..
I have spent most of this week taking care of sick kids. Alexander was hit with a chest cold and cough for the last few days and the Libby was experiencing some vomiting and a fever earlier in the week but I am happy to report they both seem to be back to normal.
Our family has also been following the big political fiasco we are currently facing in Wisconsin and since I promised myself I would never discuss politics on my blog, I will just say it has been very, very interesting. If you haven’t heard anything or want some more information you can find a great blog post HERE, and HERE.
Other than that, I don’t really have much else to report. It’s getting late and I should really get some rest….another busy day ahead since the big kids have a half day of school and I have A LOT of work to catch up on!
Until then, I hope you have had a chance to check out the 30 Day Picture Challenge I have been working on.
