Life has been busy the past few days and I’ve been trying to get into my new groove. Over the weekend I was quite grumpy with Andy at random times and the sight of him was just ticking me off. He had done NOTHING to make me mad. I even got some free time this… Read More hangry.
I’m having one of those days/weeks where my children are making me crazy because no matter what I do or they do NOTHING IS GOOD ENOUGH. Or they are just mad at the world for reasons I’ll never understand.

Not that I LIVE for naptime or anything… but it really helps me hold onto whatever sanity I have left. I see all… Read More a Wednesday post
When I say that we have been going non-stop for seriously months, I mean it.
