What a weird day. What a weird week.

My friend called to tell me about her new big volunteering job(s) and I started to cry.  She kept saying how now that both Riley and Addison will be in sports for a while she thought she should get involved.  I said, "That's the kind of thing that moms with big kids do!" WAAAAA.
I think my feelings on this subject may have been just a little peaked because of a kindergarten meeting earlier this week.

My other friend is moving all the way to CA.  WAAAAA.

To distract myself from all of the growing up and moving on going around over here I am eating treats for lunch and letting my kids rule the roost.  That is only as a last resort. Yesterday I tried organizing, and today an extra long run.  So when all else fails turn to food right?  Probably not the best idea.  But...what do ya do?

To cheer myself up I played around on this site.  My maiden named spelled Beadle Tannery.
That made me laugh. 

I'm thankful to have people in my life that I care about.

It's so hard being a mom of two little kids. I myself am feeling the urge to get out of the house for a little while and do something for me...and I just got back from Dacy's. How pathetic. I feel your pain.

Andrea, I need to know more about this "Wee wonderfuls". Can you get the patterns?
