Happy Friday! I am bored to tears at the office and only have the weekend to look forward to. 12 work days straight! I need a day off just to clean my house! Pawpaw is picking up Dub from school today and he is so very excited about that. Tomorrow the first Mardi Gras parades roll which means there will be beads and toys all over our house because JW likes to recreate the parades at home. I think it is funny, until you slip on one in the middle of the night and just about break your neck. I'm sure Griswold (our new cat) will be happy to have some new toys.

Speaking of Griswold and necks breaking, he loves to get right under your feet when you are walking and no, he doesn't care if you have a baby in your arms or your feet are wet because you forgot to grab a towel before you got in the shower. He's cute so he gets away with it, for now. He is also a fan of attacking feet/arms when we are in bed. The thing about it is that he doesn't let go until you fling him off. I felt bad the first few times, but not anymore. Note to self: buy a spray bottle!

Back to the weekend, I'm meeting mom early in the morning to drop off Hayden so she can get back before the traffic gets too bad on the Island. My plans for the rest of the day are as follows.


For the past 3 weeks there has been a birthday party and this weekend is no exception. Corbin's 2nd birthday party is Saturday afternoon and Eithon's is Sunday. I think Mark and I may go grab a drink somewhere Saturday night, but who knows. My only goal is to clean my house. There are just not enough hours in the day for me to get everything done.

Since starting my new job at Breland Homes, my schedule has been very hectic. I get up at 5:30 and get myself showered and dressed. Then JW gets up at 6:30 (not by choice) and I have him dressed and eating breakfast by 7. Hayden gets up at 7 (not by choice either) and I have to change and feed her. JW helps feed her most mornings but he just has to hold her bottle because she is already strapped in the car seat. We are all out the door by 7:18 and at school to drop off Dub by 7:25 and at Jess's to drop off Hayden by 7:35 or so, unless it is Tuesday or Thursday and I have her at Mawmaw's by 7:45 or so. I usually get to work no later than 8:30 and most of the time I'm earlier than that. Come 4:30 I'm out the door and picking up the kids, then do homework, feed and bathe both of them and put them to bed.

Did you notice that I haven't mentioned Mark yet? That is because he gets up at 3:30 am, out the door by 4 am and when he gets off at 4:30 pm, he is on his way to his other job and home by 10:30 or so. We hardly get to see each other so we don't feel bad for taking one night out of the week to spend together. Friday's are usually his day off (if it doesn't rain) and he spends it with Hayden. He also takes JW to school and picks him up when he can.

Sunday is family day. I love going to Nanny's to eat lunch with them, mom and dad. I love how Grampa keeps filling our plates even though we can't eat another bite and Nanny makes sure to send leftovers home with us for Mark to take to work. Mom usually bakes a cake and sends that with us as well. The rest of the time Mom and Nanny cuddle with Hayden while Dad, Grampa and Mark watch JW run around like a wild man. After lunch we find our way to Blockbuster to rent movies, then home for a nap. Then it's laundry time. I like to have JW's uniforms all lined out for the week so I don't have to think about it in the mornings.

So this is my life now. Work work work and little play time. It's worth it. I'm hoping that it will all payoff in the long run. I breathe a little easier now and I know some of the pressure is off of Mark now and that is a very good thing. We're getting there! Just have to keep on keepin on!

Hope you all have a super duper wonderful weekend! Love to all...
