Our New Normal

Hey, ya'll.  It's me again.  I don't have a ton of time, but I've been itching to give you a little update on life.  I know I've skipped over some fun family things we've been doing, but hopefully I'll have more time to blog a little later this week.

As luck would have it, both of my kids have been sick in the two and a half weeks that I've had my new job.  Isn't that just so typical?  Eric's parents came and stayed the first week and my parents have stayed this week.

I've been so busy that my head is spinning.  Between the sick kids, t-ball, and a few evenings of working I feel like I'm all over the place...and the truth is...I LOVE it!  I thrive on being busy.  I'm the weirdo that just has more energy when I don't stop.  Plus, with everyone finally sleeping, I feel like a new women.

For the most part I've found my new groove. Of course there are still a few areas that I need to figure out. My laundry is piling up faster than I care to mention.  I'm convinced one of the kids peed in the Master Bathroom floor, but I can't get rid of the smell, and I have been a slacker at packing my lunches.

The good news is that morning and bedtimes seem to be so much less hectic and rushed, and Eric and I actually get to have uninterrupted conversations in the morning before the kids wake up.  It's like going on mini dates...ha!

As for the new position, I couldn't ask for anything better,  I get to work with a group of people who are passionate about their careers and specially about children.  Plus, I get to interact with kiddos almost every day which is so amazing.  I'm still trying to get my head around the new position and to establish a workday routine.  Having worked under a deadline for most of my professional life, I know that I tend to be more efficient and proficient if I have a routine or method.  For the most part I've found that groove, but I need a little more practice.

All in all this has been the most amazing, blessed change for our family.  I'm looking forward to having everyone healthy again so that we enjoy this new normal
