May begins this week! Eek! I almost had a panic attack this morning when I realized that the three months of kids being around me every minute of the day (constantly wanting food) while I’m trying to work is almost here. It’ll be here in a snap. I’M NOT READY. I’m never ready. It’s certainly gotten easier over the years. But Caden still whines nonstop that he doesn’t know what to doooooooo if he’s not allowed to be playing games at that moment. It’s really fun.
In exciting news, Greg and I are heading out to Colorado on Wednesday to celebrate our 13th anniversary a few weeks early! Neither of us have ever been there and it’s a state we’ve always wanted to visit, so it should be a lot of fun! I’ve been pretty stressed about a lot of stuff lately, but my goal is to seriously just forget about everything else and have a good time while we’re there. Dolls and writing and everything else can be put on hold for a week and it won’t kill me. It might even make me better by the time I get back! I’m a bit nervous about leaving the boys so long during the school year – I’m not sure we’ve ever done that before. It just gets tricky with the longer commute and cold lunches and homework and soccer practices and everything. Not that I think the grandparents can’t handle it, but I still feel bad about it. But it’ll be okay. It’ll be worth it.
That’s about it for my intentions for the week! I’m hoping to make a little more headway on some dolls tomorrow so I’m in a better place to start my giveaway right when we get back. And Tuesday will be spent madly packing for everyone and all the directions we’re going. With Jack’s prescription foods and medicine, even taking care of the pets is pretty complicated right now. But if I can just get through the next two days smoothly, the trip will be amazing!
Have a good week, everyone!
