Random Thoughts.

My mind is pretty jumbled this week with things going on and things to do and things to remember and such so until I really get into the swing of things, here's my random thoughts of today.

My old computer hard drive has been recovered by my soon-to-be newest advertiser. Randy of RJM Technology did what the in-store Geek Squad couldn't. (Or could only do in Kentucky, go figure.) I'm still not fully operational on my new netbook but am making the most. Soon we'll merge my stuff onto here so I can feel back to normal.

We haven't done our taxes yet and I'm pretty sure this is the latest ever for us. Typically I have done them myself as soon as all our paperwork comes in. Last year we came scary close to paying in and admittedly, that's my hold up this year.

I am heading to Chicago on Friday morning for the weekend for a friend's 30th birthday. I haven't been to Chicago since I was pregnant with E. Oh, also, I'm taking the megabus. Should be an adventure for sure.

Yesterday morning, T dropped one of our nice juice glasses by accident and it shattered. Usually I kind of freak out about stuff like that. But yesterday, I didn't. I actually surprised myself with calm when it happened and spent the rest of the morning proud of myself.

I'm stuggling with a decision for summer. H is old enough to play rec-soccer this year and it seems like most things I get all excited and can't wait for him to do it but this I'm just unsure. Do I really want (and need) to add another activity in our schedule? It would be two evenings a week for June and July, which is also the thick of baseball season for T. I need to decide by next Tuesday. What would you do?

We're in the midst of finding a nanny just for one day a week and some evenings and weekend stuff. {We love, love, love the girls we have now but the reality is they are getting real jobs, one is getting married and while they still love to help up when they can, it just doesn't always work.} I have realized in order to continue writing and doing the things I'm doing (Patch, blog, personal projects, business of the blog) I need time and I would rather that be time that I am away from my kids rather than cursing through a failed nap attempt or botched early bedtime. {Not that I would do that, ahem.} And seriously, I think I really need to write about the craziness that is bringing my two year old along to meetings with me.

What are some of YOUR random, hodge-podge thoughts today? Or what's your advice or input on anything I've shared above?

Happy Wednesday, friends and Thank You for bearing with me this week!

I understand the hesitation about multiple sports! Sam is in spring soccer and since I missed the deadline I had to sign him up for a different town's t-ball for the summer. That's going to add 20 to our drive time. So far julia isn't in anything because I don't think she'll stay focused for the 45 practices. Then there's the need for swimming lessons, but only sam is old enough for. It doesn't seem fair to let him do three things while she does nothing. I'll probably sign her up for gymnastics and pay the consequenses of multiple activities. Our DAY time is slow enough that it will give us something fun to do in the evenings. Oh and I'm refusing to worry about how many games/practices they'll miss when the baby is born smack dab in the middle of it :)

Have fun in Chicago!

I'm glad you're looking for a "nanny" over a babysitter. Nothing against babysitters but as a former NANNY (i know you were one also), it's a better bang for your buck. A good nanny will work during naps, folding laundry, helping with dishes and generally whatever else needs to be done and only use video games/tv in the event of an emergency...for a little more an hour. When parent used to scoff at my price, this was my assurance to them and I always made sure I was earning that $15+ an hour (Chicago prices). You were a nanny, so I have no doubt you realize this but man-it is SO different that the neighborhood babysitter (although I was that too and started at the ripe old age of 9-YIKES!). Good luck finding the perfect person for your family.

I know you have a crazy schedule already, but I can't help but think about how much H stands to gain from having his own sporting experience just like his big brother. (This is coming from the girl who was involved in EVERYTHING and loved every minute!) Maybe there's something he can do during the day that won't interfere as much with the schedule??
