Bye, Bye Spring Break

Spring break is nearing the end... sad, but true.  We had a good day yesterday.  Took a little road trip to visit my sweet niece who will be 2 next month.  She is the sweetest, happiest little thing.  :)  My girls adore her - especially Maddie.  She talks about her every single day.  She loves that she's bigger than someone.  Funny thing is, Maddie is so little - and well, baby Aly's genes are a lot more promising for height opportunities.  It will be a sad day if and when Aly shoots up and Maddie realizes that Aly is bigger than her.  ;)

I have to share a couple of funny quotes from Audrey on our trip.  I haven't updated my "Audreyisms" in quite some time - but I will be adding these to the list.  She was sitting in the back of the van after about an hour and a half and we were all talking.  She says, "Quiet - my leg is asleep".  LOL  That just struck me as funny.  Another thing that she does a lot is make up words - or mix up words.  Prime example yesterday: we passed a construction site and she said, "Look, it's a porticle potty."  She's so stinkin' cute!

So an enjoyable day off yesterday = long work day today.  I ended up working until 5:00 trying to catch up on stuff and filling in for my boss who is on vacation this week.  So much for working part time, huh?  Still so far behind on paperwork because every time I go in the office there are so many other requests that I don't have time to do what I'm suppose to be doing.  Makes the time go by quick though! 

Derek & I have agreed that me working outside of home is not working for us.  Seems like the girls have been sick a lot more (took the girls to the doctor Wednesday for the 3rd time since the end of January).  Maddie has been acting out a lot since starting daycare.  I've hardly cooked at all which means we're spending more money eating out - and it's much less healthy.  I've had no time to exercise.  The house is a mess most of the time. 

I haven't officially told my boss I'm leaving, but he knows that I won't be available much this summer because both girls will be home every day.  I also mentioned that we'd be homeschooling in the fall, so I probably won't be here at all after summer.  I haven't given him an actual end date.  He's suppose to start looking for an extra person next week when he gets back (I am working 2 positions right now).  I know that leaving work will be a gradual process.  I promised him from the beginning that I'd give him ample time to find a replacement if I ever decided to leave.  He's a one man show, so I will not leave him high and dry.  He's been great to me. 

Well, that's my thoughts for the day!  Looking forward to a stress free, commitment free weekend before the crazy week ahead starts!


  1. The leg comment is hilarious. I miss Audry-isms!

    So you are officially homeschooling? After you do it for awhile can you convince my husband of the awesomeness of homeschool?

    I know, she cracks me up!! YES!!! We are officially homeschooling next year. I can't wait! We'll see how it goes and maybe Derek can talk to John. ;)
