Updates

I suppose it's time for a real post. It's 915 and yes I should probably go to bed but I haven't blogged in a while, and after today, I really need it!! Just one of those days. The boys are sick again and it's fall break...so we've been stuck in the house. GOING CRAZY!!! Heath had to work late tonight too. Things have been so crazy and as you can tell, with a newborn, there's never a dull moment. It's funny, I can remember thinking before i had Mazie while Camden was taking his nap and Jace at school, I actually had a moment to myself and thought "sure, I can do another baby." Some days I wonder what I was thinking. But seriously as these boys wrestle and fight and scream and run around like crazy, I feel so lucky to snuggle with my little princess. She is a joy to have around and when she smiles and coos, it warms my heart. In fact, I find my mouth hurting from smiling so much.

Yet, I have to be honest, I still feel completely exhausted with no sleep at night, cry here and there for no reason, have small little outbursts because my house can never stay in order,  the kids can't keep their hands to themselves, and Heath still can't find a job. I hate to complain because I know we are so blessed. And know plenty of couples who would love to have a busy life with kids along with the good and the bad they bring.

My friend Wendy came by tonight for a sec to pick something up (she works full time), and honestly I wanted to switch places with her so I could just go to an office, sit in a cubical and do a job where I know what the outcome will be. With kids, anything can happen. I suppose that's what keeps things interesting though.

So, enough of that. Heath is graduating in December and we've been on the job hunt for months now! We actually haven't gone a couple weeks without applying to a new job. And lately, we've been applying to them once a week atleast. I know things will work out, they always do, but I am a planner and yet again, I am found in the position of having no idea where we'll be in a couple months. The most important thing to us is making sure Jace is in a good school district but I have no control over where we get a job. I have faith in the future but man, I wish I would know by now. We both want to move out of this condo so bad bc we are bursting at the seems. So we are praying and praying and fasting that we can go where the Lord needs us to be. It's funny I say, sure I'll go wherever, but when push comes to shove, I don't want to be far from family. Yet, I will go.

Jace started kindergarten and is LOVING it! He takes the bus all by himself. Every time he drives off, I can't believe i have a kid old enough to ride the bus. But it's a great set up right outside our door so the convenience is heaven sent. Camden turns two years old in a couple weeks. And I can't believe that either. He is talking a lot more and talking back too. I suppose that's the joy of having an older sibling to teach you bad manners. That stinker! He is stubborn and determined but so loving when he wants. He climbs every where and gets into everything. But he ADORES his sister. He has to hold her all the time. I hope they are good friends when they are older. :)

I need to post some family pictures we took. I will soon. The colors have changed it was a beautiful fall but now the leaves are nearly gone and winter is peaking its head around the corner. I'm not sure how I feel about having snow again. Worried about more winter sickness and colds and flus. I might get my flu shot for the first time this year. Any thoughts? So debatable.

Well time to go to sleep for a couple hours. I hope to stay afloat these next couple days. Mazie is stirring as I write and my feet are getting cold as it's in the 20s tonight. sleep tight.

Sounds like things are going well! We're just now in the thick of all the fall colors, but thankfully no snow yet!!
And YES, do get the flu shot! Your kiddos too! They are higher risk than you or Heath, but its still a good idea for you to get it as well because you are their main care giver.
Prayers to you on the job hunt... I bet he'll find something soon!
