Feeling Old!!!

Not the creak in my bones or difficulty moving. More like I am weeks away from my guy Cameron turning 8. Every time I look in the mirror I see another gray hair growing. I am not getting any younger. I need to do something about that. I think I am going to go eat a popsicle. That makes everyone feel young. Go enjoy a popsicle today like I am and enjoy the fact that we can still be young at heart.


On to my to do list to prepare for a big eighth birthday for my guy Cameron.

Here is what defeat is. I had to work a lot last week, and by a lot, that I did not get my usual days off. My house looks like a tornado has blown through. The dishes are piled high. The laundry all over the floor. Cat hair clinging to everything. That is what defeat is. And to top it all off, I have had zero patience with my kids. I mean zero. Every little thing has set me off. The only thing that brings the slightest bit of sunshine and hope is the fact that with all my flaws and inconsistencies is that fact that my kids still tell me they love me when they go to bed. That is unconditional love.

And tomorrow is the start of a new day. A day that hopefully will not defeat me.

Giants Game & Easter Weekend

Yes, it is another post about another trip to the San Francisco Giants game, but we can't get enough of a great ballpark and a great team. They didn't win, it was bitterly cold, and we ended up with a very unhappy 4 year old who had way too much sugar at the ballpark, but we were together and loved every minute of it. Paul got to watch more of the game than I did. Cameron pretty much played on his Nintendo DS and Madeline fell asleep in my arms in the 6th inning. What better way to spend a Friday night.

Easter consisted of easter baskets, easter egg hunts, and of course lots of cousins around to play with. There is always the picture of the kids in their easter duds, but is it too much to ask to get just one picture without my son making some kind of face, I mean really. I would have a file full of great pictures of the kids, if it weren't for a little man making faces. At least I have pictures to show future girlfriends. BLACKMAIL. We had a lot of fun with the family and got to help Grandpa Meadows celebrate his birthday.
