Calls that End in Tears

First things first, I know I'm late, but Happy Halloween everyone. The kids had a blast tonight, and got loaded with lots of looks to be good stuff! I'll probably get pictures up when we get back. Dahrran was an Elephant, MacKenzie and Kaitlynn were butterflies! TOO CUTE!

We're headding out bright and early in the morning, or shall I say in a few minutes it will be this morning! The alarm is going off at 4:30, and it's almost midnight! I still have a little bit of packing to do yet when we get up!

So yeah, but boy do I have a story for you! So today I was getting ready to head out the door to get $$$$ and munchies for the trip when I got a call from our Neurosurgery clinic. I figured they were confirming our appointment for next week, like they always do. Well they were, but they were also informing me that the place where we get our helmets done, will no longer be doing them....and that on Monday morning we are to report to the hospital instead. Okay, well the stupid nurse knows NOTHING other than that, and will not give me anymore information. I'm so confused at this point because I had no idea! So finally the head nurse calls me back and explains it all to me. . . when I ask her more questions, she has no answers for me! OIGH! SO needless to say I don't really know what all we're in for this time around. I hope it goes smoothly, and easy, but I'm just not sure!

Not Me Monday

I know I know, you all need something new to read. And yes we're all doing fine. It's just been crazy busy around here. I know you're tired of hearing about how busy we are too! I truely am sorry. Every day when I get around to reading my blogs, I think "ya know, I could blog everyday", and then it hits me...when? I mean I took 10 minutes to hang out laundry today and when I got back in, the girls were both soaked from the waist up. But back to daily do you ladies do it? How do you find the time to be mom, wife, housekeeper, taxi driver, seemstress, chef, employee, and still have the chance to find time for yourself?

Anywho it's time again for another Not Me Monday!

So this week I most certianly did NOT decide that yesterday was perfect laundry hanging out weather. I mean it was nice and breezy, and well ya know 40 degree weather will totally get them dry in record time. I also did NOT hand out more laundry today when the weather is only a few degree's cooler, because seriously people laundry is easier to hang when your fingers are frozen!

I also did NOT agree to work on the assumption that my husband would be home on time, before talking to him. Only to have him not show up because he didn't know he was supposed to be home, and then me panic-ing 5 minutes before I was supposed to work! I always make sure I have a babysitter before I say I'll work, because you know my boss totally lets me know more than an hour before she wants me to work.

I did NOT make rice crispy bars yesterday so I could eat them, and was hungry for them. I made them so the kids could cut them in to fun fall shapes, frost them, and put sprinkles on them, because it made a neat "craft". You know I also did NOT eat 3 of them lastnight, and one for breakfast this morning!

And I'm also NOT secretly hoping they'll tell us that Kaitlynn doesn't need another helmet. Even though I know she will, and it's better if they do put another helmet on her. But you know, I'm so NOT tired of her smelly little hard head everytime she cuddles!

We've had fun the last week, we got to meet with family from out of state, and have a nice dinner. We've enjoyed some of the last days of warm weather, picked out some nice pumpins in hopes of getting them carved, done LOTS of fun fall/halloween crafts, and of course lots of household things!

In the next week I'm sure I won't get around to blogging either. We're headed for Texas again soon for yet another helmet trip. I'm hoping it will be our last trip for a while, but I'm not quite sure! I'll try to update you when we arive, and such or if you're family I'm sure we'll be in touch!!!!

Quiet weekened ahead!

Well it's been over a week since I posted last, and it doesn't even seem like that. Here's our week in a recap.

In the last week we have.....
Celebrated my sister's 18th birthday.
Watched The Huskers get their butts kicked.
Celebrated our nephew's 1st birthday.
Got Kaitlynn's helmet checked out, (everything is okay, we'll be headin to Texas the beginning of November)
Found a HUGE preying mantis. (pictures later)
Took said praying mantis to Kindergarten.
Took said praying mantis to Preschool.
Let said praying mantis go, so "it could have babies, and we'll see them later"(mackenzie)
Celebrated my 24th Birthday
Talked to a real estate agent to put our house on the market(yet again)
FRANTICLY Cleaned the house, only to have said agent change the time/date
Kept the house clean so that said agent can come back tomorrow.
Mommy worked Thursday, and Friday, and will again tomorrow.
Daddy worked a VERY long day on Monday in the rainy cold weather...outside power washing! YUCK!

And in the quiet weekend ahead we will:
Dahrran will attend a birthday party for a neighbor.
Go to church...Dahrran gets to help out!!! (he's super excited)
Daddy will work all weekend.
Mommy will work tomarrow.
Said real estate agent will come, to PUT OUR HOUSE ON THE MARKET!!!!

And things we're hoping will happen:
SOMEONE WILL CALL SOMETIME AND WE'LL SELL ......soon.....okay so we're really hoping to have the house sold by the end of the month, if not next we can get the acreage we're hoping for. But we also know God has a reason, and a plan, and we're part of it.

So I'll leave you with my favorite saying!

"Someday everything will all make perfect sense. So for now, laugh at the confusion, smile through the tears, and keep reminding yourself that EVERYTHING happens for a reason!"
(we're just hoping our someday comes soon!)
