What To Say

I have been feeling very blah here lately.

I was sick all this past week. I has strep throat which I haven't had since I was like 10. Then when that let up my allergies kicked in and I got all sinus infectionie.

I feel very removed right now. I have been withdrawing recently. Kind of sequestering myself. Lets call it self-quarenteening.

I was sick so I put myself in my room and shut the door. My Hubby who is the best man ever took care of me. Now I am better and I just don't want to come back out.

Maybe it is the after sickness blues. Maybe it is just laziness. I don't really know.

In the mean time I am trying to indulge in the below.

Night Like Tonight

We have a pretty consistent schedule in our house. The kids are up around 6 or 7 am and in bed no later then 8. Every other night my husband and I switch duties of either singing or tucking. And then he sits outside the bedroom til Sioné is fast asleep. 2-3 nights a week I do the sitting and almost always at nap time.

Tonight however is my night and I am despising it. Hubby is working his late shift. The big kids are in my room watching UP. I am still trying to get bratbaby (do you like my new nickname for the chubster?) to go to sleep.

I want to rip my hair out. 2 HOURS!!!!!!! And he is still talking to me. I just wanna go watch the movie with Phabian and MJ.

OK I'm done...

Alive

I have been busy with life.

Not anything extravagant but just life with three kids and a husband.

And ya know what its good. Life is good!

The kids got a bunk bed yesterday. Its nice and I love it. They love it. It gives them more space in their room and it has drawers in the steps for added storage space. Its a winner all around.

My Hubby and I have been working on some minor (and I do mean minor) issues we have been having in our relationship. Without going into details it is thing like time management, alone time, and intimacy. I think things all marriages go through when u have been married for almost 7 years.

But I am lucky because we are very open with one another. We are able to easily talk about everything without holding back because of fear. We have decent communication besides the normal man to woman translation. You know men and women say the same thing but interprete words very differently.

The kids are doing great. MJ is nearing pre-k graduation. I can't believe how fast this year has flown. Phabian is almost done with kindergarten which is insane.

I am happy to report Phabian has been doing much better at school. I am not sure what changed but we have been trying to give more positive rewards and it seems to be working. So far so good.

Sioné is growing way too fast. He is 16 months old almost. He is so big...literally. he is 31 inches tall and 27 pounds. Bigger then either of his brothers at this age. I am enjoying every moment of him being this age. I know too soon it will be gone.

And me...well...I'm still working on me. It is a constant improvement and work or art. Like a panting that is ever changing and developing. My temper is getting better and I wish I could say my tolerence was getting better but as I said...work in progress right here.

So yea. Life is good. I have a beautiful family. Great friends. And does it get any better than that?
