What has been keeping me from blogging

I am super busy these days... I am watching two sweet boys ... They are two and a half and seven months.. I get my baby fix without having to have another baby... Its perfect!! Starting tomorrow I will be having a sweet 10mo old little girl, she is one of Tiffanie's extras, i am helping her out because she is 9 days away from having her baby. I will only have her twice a week. And starting wed. I will have an almost three year old little girl ..also to help Tiffanie the next few weeks are going to be busy busy busy.

Last week we went to the bay area discovery museum. That is what the picture is with the two strollers and a million kids... Four of them are mine and five are Tiffanies ... She watches three extras. We were quite the sight:)

I spend time going to estate sales and pricing items for my booth... That is the other picture. Lisa and I are doing great down at the shop and are having so much fun.

Graham started t-ball... Which he loves. Big girls, Scarlette and i are dancing at pepperetts and Gabby is dancing at school and they are in the middle of their big jazz show... They have multiple practices during the week and three shows last weekend and. Two this weekend. Gwen has rainbow at least twice a month.

With all of that there is no time to make anything, blog or be creative. I read blogs where I see people doing all of that and making amazing stuff.... And cooking amazing meals...How do they do it???

I really want to take some yoga classes... Going to try to squeeze that in somewhere. I need the exercise and the peace for my sanity.

Oh .. And without saying specifics... My husband is out of town for work about 50% of the time.

And to add to the chaos ... We changed all the kids rooms.... Because my eldest daughter was not making the best choices... This was one of those necessary parenting decisions that caused a ton of work for we moved her into the laundry room next to our bedroom. Yes, it's a huge laundry room. And the washer and dryer are in the closet... We then moved Gwen into the small little kids bedroom and the littles into the girls old big bedroom. Weeks later we are still working on hanging and re hanging shelves, pictures, curtains and Knick knacks. And I lost my sewing room in the process because it lived in the laundry room. I have a table and my desk in the play room but all the rest of the stuff is shoved in a corner in Gabby's room. Which sucks for both of us.

That's my crazy life in a nut shell

Good for you stepping in with your daughter. Do it now while you have some influence. And it will provide her with a chance to come around. You are being a good mother, say that every time you receive an unkind or snide remark from her.
My sister gave our parents quite a lot of greef in her teens. I was happy caring for my farm animals, not chasing boys.
PS.. Sis grew up to be a wonderful adult, wife and mother. Who had a girl that was sweet and not boy crazy.
