I'm Still Here

So I've really gotten out of this whole 'blogging' thing recently.  It feels like everything else has come first. 

I have so much going on that when I even think about writing, something else comes up.

Here I sit, the day after Easter with a sick kiddo.  He has pink eye and some form of cold I think.  I am planning on taking him to the doctor and working from home later.  It's good to be able to work from home, but bad timing for Xander to be sick because I have an audit coming up in two weeks and have so much to do!  I don't think we are going to be completely ready even if I work a million hours before then.

Anyway, I have so many things I want to do with my 'free' time but I really won't have much for the next 3-4 weeks due to work.  After that, I am finally taking some time off.  I want to take a week off of work to just sleep in, do work around the house and just do things I want to do which includes shopping for lots of household stuff like paint, decorations and some outdoor decor items too.  I never have to really browse and I want to look at stores during the week when it's not such a zoo so I have time and things aren't so rushed.  I feel like my project list is about a mile long.  While not all of the things on the list are must do items, many of them are things I really want to do sooner than later and have been on my list for a while.

I know I have said this before, but now we have lived in our house for over a year and I feel like it is not really even close to what I want it to look like.  Granted, everything I want to do or change takes money and even if I had the time, it's not like we may have had the money for all of it, but I know I could have done a lot of things by now if I had more time to plan.  I'm just ready for a break. 

In other life news, this is totally TMI, but Xander is mostly potty trained now (he was pretty slow to learn) but the funny part is, he has the number 2 down better than the number 1 and that usually comes later!  Either way, he is close and I am proud of his progress.  We changed daycares a few weeks ago and I think the old daycare was part of the reason he wasn't doing so well.  Hard to explain, but he has been doing much better at the new place.

Otherwise, life is just busy!  I had posted previously about the project life kits I had gotten but I haven't barely touched them and I haven't printed a single picture for the year yet (yikes - I am over three months behind), but I feel like it wouldn't take long to catch up, which is part of why I want some time off so bad.  I want to be able to catch up on scrapbooks along with all of my house projects.

I plan to write more in the near future, but we will see.
