March 26...Almost Spring Break!

Wow!!  I can't believe that the first quarter of 2012 is almost over.  I also can't believe how much I've 'neglected' this blog.  One would think that being a SAHM leaves me tons of time to blog, but sadly, no.

So...what's happened since my last bloggity.

I have a daughter who likes to brag about her mom playing softball in high school and college, and that landed me a free guilt trip to help coach her softball team.  So I'm doing that.

I signed up to volunteer at the school for an hour two days a week during the lunch period.  I handle Wyatt's lunch period on Mondays and Jordan's on Thursdays.  The jury is still out on which group is harder work - 2nd or 5th graders.

Wyatt is super busy with soccer on Mondays and Wednesdays, and Tae Kwon Do on Tuesdays and Thursdays.  Games are about to begin and those will be on Sundays.  Jordan has had a couple of games but some have been rained out.

In addition, I've gotten back on the health wagon.  I've been alternating between running 1.5 miles, doing the elliptical for 4 miles, biking for 6 miles, and Zumba!  I've also been using the My Fitness Pal app to keep track of my calories, fat, etc., and my cardio.  I'm not doing too bad!

My eldest son turns 18 in 15 days.  I'm refusing to deal with that right now, and putting it in a little corner.  I'm not going to be able to do that for long, seeing as it's happening in 15 days, though.  He also graduates high school in 58 days.  And then can I breathe a sigh of relief?  He's had a lot of support in getting to where he is today, and I couldn't be more proud of the young man he has become.  He amazes me in his quiet gentleness, his thoughtful wisdom, and his sense of humor.

We're leaving Thursday evening to go to AZ for a little Spring Break visit.  I'm excited to see our good friends - and they are all excited we're coming for a little visit.  I wish we could stay longer, but we're saving our vacation funds for a little visit to Puerto Vallarta we have planned the first week of July.

And as I now look at the clock, it's 2:35, and I need to go pick up my children from school.  I will then rush home, get them through homework, get them changed, get one to soccer practice at 4, drop the other at softball at 4:30.  Wyatt has soccer practice until 5:30 and then Jordan has a game at 5:30.  Looks like snack shack hot dogs for dinner!  Cheap, but tasty.

How's your world?
