I haven't been keeping up with my blog! I have been so busy with every day happenings that I haven't had time to sit down or think straight to post something blog-worthy.
Two weeks ago, I was released from my calling as choir director, and called to be a nursery leader. Can I tell you that I'm both releived and sad? I LOVE MUSIC! But it was just too much; every time my then three-month-old would cry out of hunger/need for comfort, I was helpless to do anything but flap my arms in front of the choir. All the women were so amazingly helpful, especially with Lincoln, but I have learned that there is no one like mom, especially when your newborn is hungry! So that was always really stressful for me. I am sad, because I don't really have a musical outlet now, but relieved because I now have a calling where I'm not 'the only one' who can be there. It's a good fit for me, and I am really excited.
I am also SICK!!! Actually, all four of us are. It stinks! Bryan has some sort of sinus infection, both boys have runny noses and coughs (nothing a humidifier can't knock out, they're mostly fussy and inconsolable), and I have major congestion, sinus headache, sneezes and sore throat. NO FUN!!! And the worst part is that I'm the one who has to do the 'nursing back to health'. UGH. I think I need a vacation!
Ending on some good news:
- Bryan is going back to school (YAY!) so we can finally make millions. lol! We found a local art school that I have been 'suggesting' for a little while, and he is receptive and excited.
- I got a haircut (pictures to come when I feel human again). It still feels a bit like a wig because it's so different than my last haircut, but I like it.
Once I feel better I'll actually write something more meaningful. But this post will have to do for now!
SO now that I've happily been engrossed enough in the world of vampires, werewolves, and humans, I am plunged back into reality (ho hum).
So here's a post about ME! :)
A-Attached or Single? Very attached
B-Best Friend? Bryan (does anybody dare not to put their husband?)
C-Cake or Pie? Pie, unless it’s cheesecake, but is that considered a pie?
D-Day of Choice? Wednesday (it’s usually the day I get to sleep for 20 minutes longer, and for some reason Bryan is home earlier)
E-Essential Item? baby wipes; I use them for EVERYTHING! Did you know they can get off stubborn grease stains from the stove? TRY IT!!!
F-Favorite Color? The rainbow. I gravitate towards neutrals, and blues & greens
G-Gummy bears or worms? worms

U-Unknown facts about me? I'm a little OCD in balancing the checkbook. Everything has to have a paper trail, and if Bryan puts even a toe out of line, I go crazy. He also informs me that I have a feisty streak… um, duh. I’m a redhead. Don’t we ALL have feisty streaks?
