I can't sleep and I am thinking

I am thinking about a board presentation I plan to give in May. I am thinking about sponsorship letters that need to go out for an event that is in Sept. I am thinking about driving my MIL to BWI in the morning. I am thinking that Chris and I will never agree on a new house to buy. I am thinking about how I volunteered to serve on the board of my Moms Club but am afraid it is going to be more work than I bargined for. I am thinking that I wish I was sleeping instead of typing on my blog. I am thinking that I miss my friend Heather and my friend Kim. I am thinking it is way too hard to make time to exercise.

... I am thinking that I am pretty lucky to be awake and to be thinking about such trivial things. How truly blessed am I to be thinking about being able to give back to my community, to get to stay home with my children, share time with my childrens' grandparents, and to have such wonderful friends that I care so much about...and to have my health and to be able to exercise. I am thinking how grateful I am!

Quality vs. Quantity

So spring is almost upon us here in the Mid-Atlantic. Damn it better be. I am ready for just a little warmth. Not a ton. I am not missing 90 degree days in FL right now that is for sure.
The kids seem to have adjusted nicely to the change in venue. Chandler still longs to spend lazy days playing with his Grandma in FL and we will continue to try and make that happen as often as possible. I think he just really doesn't want to grow up. It is hard for him. He is so dreamy by nature. So going to school any school and being a "big" boy is always going to be hard. He doesn't do change well but neither does Chris. Chris is trying to adjust but he is having a hard time with the new job which makes him more of a major player at work. More of a mover and a shaker. Which neither he would ever volunteer to be. While the change Chandler is going through I worry somewhat about the change Chris is experiencing I embrace. He needed to be out of his comfort zone for a while. It is currently causing him stress which in turn causes me stress but in a good way. And he sees that this move is for the best. I know he worries that the kids won't grow up right next to their grand parents and that he is travelling may keep him away from them too much...But I think we should focus on Quality over Quantity. I didn't grow up right next to my Grandparents but I have the fondest memories of both of them. My Dad travelled for work too when I was a kid but We went a long for the trip. I may not have had perfect attendance at school but I went on some great family trips.
It would be disappointing if I didn't post about Gavin and Fiona since it has been so long since my lost real post.
Gava-rooney is doing great. We have decided to send him to preschool for another year instead of pushing him ahead like I originally had planned. I was going to have him tested so basically he would go to Kindergarten a year early but I have changed my mind and I am going to go along with the crowd. Send when his birthday and the state say he should go. If he is too smart or bored once he gets to Kindergarten in the fall of 2010 (eeee GADS 2010) then I will push him up but why stress him out now unnecessarily and just b/c I buck the system why should I make my children have to...
Fiona is doing wonderfully she doesn't miss Florida cuz basically she doesn't remember it. She is taking gymnastic once a week and the gym as asked to take 2 days a week in the fall. It is like a real gym for like real gymnasts. The only way she will last is if she gets my height and not Chris'. But if she ends up tall like Daddy...Watch out Make me a Supermodel 2024 She is the one to watch!
Happy St. Patrick's Day.

Do you ever wonder if it is you?

Like have you ever had a day where of seems like regardless of what you say someone is always pissy. Do you wonder if it is you? But other people are nice to you so it can't be you. But maybe it is you it always seems to be you.

Snow Days

Ahhh! Time to sleep in, eat a full breakfast, and play. But It seems like I do a lot of entertaining on these days. I think that goes along with the fact that my children's school days are so schedule normally. The boys started in Waldorf school which is known for lack of better wording free time. They get to chose what they want to do when they want to do it especially when they are little like in preschool. So now I am so not used to them not entertaining themselves. I truly believe they don't have any free time at school at all- No time to day dream, no time to color freely or just be bored. From here to there all day long- So much on the agenda. Alternative Education may still be in our future. OH no!
