#iPPP - Pumpkin Patch

Our visit to the Pumpkin Patch this year...
Poor Ian (middle son, 3) was sick with a stomach bug the day he was supposed to visit the pumpkin patch w/his preschool class so we made it up to him w/a visit on Saturday.
We got there a little early so we took off through the pumpkin patch to find the perfect one. While most of us were looking for something sort of specific, Bram (youngest son 18mths) wanted any pumpkin he could carry...and didn't want you to take any away from him.

Luke (oldest son, 11) was the only one I could talk into stopping for a picture.

 Ian then wanted his picture made...
 And I found these growing in the middle of the pumpkin favorite color.

One of THOSE days....

This is the first post I've made on this blog since 2008. A third son has joined our family since my previous post. I haven't blogged because I didn't want to blog, but because I haven't made the time to blog. If you're reading this, thank you for joining me on my journey to a new beginning.
If you're a mom, I think you know what kind I'm referring to. The days where you can never seem to catch up.
After dropping the oldest off at school and the 3 year old to preschool, the youngest and I head to the grocery store. I can never seem to get it together enough to buy everything we need at one time, so it's off we go. As I'm putting up the groceries, Bram is eating yogurt. I open one cabinet and a wine glass falls out to crash to the counter and broken glass proceeds to scatter from one counter, to the stove, to the opposing counter and to the floor. Of course, as I'm cleaning up the glass, Bram throws his spoon and half full container of yogurt to the floor. As a mom to three boys, I can NEVER to keep caught up on cleaning. It is a constant 24/7 job.
And, of course, as I sit here to type this, the previous named 17mth old is no longer happily playing alone, but yelling for me.
Ah...I love my life, but I do wish for a minute just for me sometimes. And then feel guilty for wishing for it.

I'm sad today. I just found out that a guy I went to high school with died a few days ago.
While attending his 20 year high school reunion 2 weeks ago, he fell and hit his head and then airlifted to the hospital. The cause of his fall was a stroke and he suffered several more while in the hospital. He was only 38 years old.

Rest in peace, Paul. Many will miss you.

i'm odd

do y'all ever get stuck in a habit that you can't stop? i don't mean smoking or whatever, but stupid habits.


i count everything from the number of steps i take while walking with ian at night to applying squirts of lotion and sprays of deodorant in the morning while always stopping at the number 7 or 13.

i knew i was weird.
