Life Goes On

Well, I've been told several times that I need to update my blog. This one's for you, Jay.

Christmas was fun. I think everyone got what they wanted. The only thing Regan asked for was a robotic dog named "Tumbles." All it does is roll over when you pet it and make noise when you rub it's tummy. Spencer wanted "Thomas the Chank Engine." He got some other trains called Geo Trax, but likes them just the same. Randy had ordered a bunch of parts that he wanted for the Jeep, so that was his Christmas. I got a gift certificate for a spa and the 3rd season of "Criminal Minds."

For New Years we went to my mom and dad's and played games with Greg's family. We had a blast!!! We went home early and went to bed just before midnight. You know you're getting old, or you have young kids, when you can't stay up past 11.

Now we're getting back into the routine of work and school. Just in time for a few days off. My boss is going out of town for the weekend so I get Friday and Saturday off. And with Martin Luther King Day, Regan gets Friday and Monday off.

I've been really stressed out lately. Regan has tried to run away and find a new family. She is really pushing her limits. And my babysitter is having her gallbladder out in a couple weeks and won't be able to watch my kids for most of February. I don't know who to ask to cover for her. My "back up" babysitter has moved to Spokane.

We're still here living one day at a time. Hope all is well with all of you.

:) It was good to see Randy the other day at UMEA. Too bad you couldn't come with him. They played well.

I know the stress thing. That's how I feel right now, too. It all piles at once and it seems like with motherhood there's always a pile. LOVE YA!
