im back

So sorry for the delay in writing. Life can get very busy when you are a mom and working! But, since I'm home sick today, I figured I could get on and update about what's been going on.

First, I'm now working at Buy Buy Baby. Its a GREAT store. If youve ever been to Bed Bath and Beyond, imagine that store with baby stuff. That's it! My co workers are awesome and its a really positive work place. Love it!

B has been working as a crossing guard for an hour in the mornings, and an hour in the afternoons. Everyday I get to hear about how she was almost killed by a speeding car, or how the kids were so impatient and didn't want to wait for her to put the sign out. Oh, my personal favorite is how tired she is everyday! Seriously??? You work 2 hours. How tired can you be? Rich is working 12-14, I work 6-8. So don't want to hear it!

Ann has had her hands full with the kids. Cameron is severely delayed. We will be taking him to Children's hospital this winter for an evaluation. He is terribly uncoordinated, and has only a few words in his vocabulary. Willow has enough energy to keep a small city running for 10 years. My child is a blessing, but I never knew how much energy a child could have! Love it!!! Thomas and William are babies. They still don't sleep all the way through the night. Each of them is up at some point for a bottle. B swears that Thomas keeps her up for hours every night, but I have a hard time believing that. When I've watched him at night, he stirs a lot, but doesn't wake up.

The house is a little cleaner than before, but we still have a LOT of work to do. Mounds of stuff seem to collect in this house, and no one puts it away until Rich hollers about it. Normally, he hollers because i'm complaining to him. I just dont understand how a house can be dirty all of the time when there are two women here almost all day. Actually, I do understand. It's called laziness. If they would just spend a few minutes everyday on each room, and pick up as messes are made, then the house would never look like an atom bomb just detonated. Now, I'm not the strictest person when it comes to a clean house, but when there are babies crawling and this many people in and out, its nice to come home to a clean house. But, alas, that has been too much to ask.

Apparently, Rich was sent information about having our family on tv for a wedding. It was my assumption that it would be mine, as I'm the newest wife. Well, since B hasn't had her wedding, she thought it would be hers. Now, for as long as I know. B has said that she wanted to wait until she was out of college to have her wedding. She didn't want to do it, for whatever reason, while she was still in school. BUT, now that the opportunity has come up for her wedding to be nationally syndicated, she's all ready to jump at the chance. OMG her immaturity just grates on my nerves. Well, anyway, through his conversations with the producers, it sounds like they may be interested in more than just a brief story. We shall see where that leads us. I can't imagine this family or this house on TV. People love drama, and we have plenty of it!!!

Willow is at Grandma and Grandpa's for a week. I really miss her. I've never had her away from me for more than 2 nights. The house feels empty without her. I guess I pick her up Sunday evening. Then, Monday, we have a family friend flying in for a few days. I'm so excited to see her, but have a LOT of work to do around the house before she gets here. Guess I wont be sleeping much this week.

I'll try to get better about updating on here. Can't wait to share more about my crazy, wonderful life. Blessings!!
