a break

(Grrr, I tried flipping this photo the right way about 10 times. You are just stuck with it this way, sorry!

What a life we lead. Busy, busy, busy. Constantly going. This Saturday I left my military ID at a store about 30 minutes away. 4 trips later, I had it back, and had also wasted about 2 hours of my busy day. Today I was given checks so that I can place an order for cookbooks. As I was gathering up my book order stuff, I thought I had everything and left. I get home and empty my order forms, cell phone, keys....hmmm no checks. I cry. I freak out. I hurry back to the school. I ask at the front office. I check the hall and go back into the PTO room. While in there, I realized I had put them in my BACK pocket. I had them the whole time. Harmony is having a hard time right now. I am not exactly sure of what all is happening but I know that I need to take care of it/her. We decided to have a journal that we share. Where she lets me know what is going on and I write back. So what do all of these ramblings lead too? I am taking a "media break". I won't be blogging,or facebooking, for awhile. I will only be answering emails that I HAVE to respond too. Limiting myself to 30 min. in the morning ( when the kids are not awake) and 30 in the evening ( when the kids are in bed). I know I will be missed but I owe it to my family and to myself. Much love

Oh and before I take this break, I need to make a shout out! Happy 1 year anniversary (of her 29th birthday) to my wonderful friend Beth. She has been such a good friend to me. She is funny, patient, kind, just a wonderful person. If you don't know her, you are missing out. I can say that I am one of the lucky ones who calls her my friend! So HAPPY ANNIVERSARY BETH!

Hi Marie,
This is Santa Claus checking in with the letter in hand. It just arrived yesterday. Such a crack-up. I'm going to answer the letter. I would like to post it on my blog, or does Ethan read my blog?? The books also arrived.
I'm sorry to hear Harmony's struggling, but I think the journal is a great idea. You're a great little Mom, and you'll be able to help her through this. Don't judge yourself too harshly on this one. After all, she's a pre-teen!! Love You Lots. Santa

Good luck with your break. My sis in law has her 10 year old write in her journal and she responds too. It has really been beneficial for her to express her feelings.
