Busy Morning

I'm tired.'s only noon but I am whipped. I've been moving at full-tilt since my feet hit the floor trying to get everything accomplished that needs to be done today. Seriously. I feel like I should be wearing a pair of nike wrestling shoes and a wrestling outfit since it feels like I've been herding cats all morning.

It's overcast right now and I am eager to get everything under control by the time the sun breaks free later this afternoon. The big question is.....will I succeed? Chores (kitchen, breakfast, bed making, house straightening, bathroom wipe down, laundry, dishwasher, trash emptied and garbage taken to the road for tomorrow's pickup, etc.)are done and I have already hit three of my five major job posting sites and applied for a handful of positions. Kids are dressed, brushed and entertained. Pets have been cared for and seem to have all found napping locations.

Is it any wonder than I am running out of steam? I have to say - it's days like this that I really impress myself. The heck with the rest of you - I'm pretty damn proud of myself. :)

It was a great weekend - which always helps me kick Monday into high gear. We split time between here and Stephanie's house so that all dogs were properly taken care of and all children have time at their own home. The kids have all gotten along incredibly well (can I just say? They were doing pretty well before the beach trip but since? They seem thick as thieves, which I awesome. I love laying in bed at night listening to them talk and giggle from the darkened living room (where they have weekend sleepovers). There is nothing like it.

And now - my break is over and I need to get back to it. I see it getting brighter out there and I want to check off my To Do list and move on to my Want To list. :)

Kalen's room looks great! As one of the few that was priviledged to see it before and I say your end product is fantastic! Glad the kids are getting along so well and you have got Monday's to do list well in hand. Have a great rest of the week.
