I'm back.....did you notice I was gone? I've missed you all and have a TON of things to share with you. I just don't know where to start.
Let's start with the bad news..... I GOT A JOB! You're not seeing things. You saw that word. That nasty 3 letter word that I thought I wouldn't utter from these lips for some time to come. But I did! There it's out there. There's no taking it back (as much as I'd like to). I'm a working girl. But not in that sense. :) (well I'm a working girl from 8am to 12pm)
Secondly we had a WONDERFUL time in Atlanta and Dallas visiting my wonderful Aunts Lynn & Keri and my parents! And I can say that it is FREAKING hot in Dallas! 105 when we left to come home. Ugh...yet still I want to move there and raise my kids there. And I am hoping that we can stick to a 2-3 year plan and move our family out there.
Thirdly (and this is a HUGE one) JAKE IS COMPLETELY POTTY TRAINED!!!!!!! NO MORE DIAPERS! DID YOU HEAR ME PEOPLE! NO MORE DIAPERS! NO MORE WIPES!
They are getting so big it's amazing. Laney is a feisty little bug and Jake is a boy's boy! And I love everything about them. Ok minus the whining! I don't like that so much.
We are gearing up for another vacation. Our last for the year this year. We are heading down to the Florida Keys for some R&R with my Mom, Dad, Sister & Bro in law, my Brother, Sis in law and Niece. And a BABYSITTER (the Labor Day weekend)! Margaritas....here I come! :)
And the biggest change of all ...... Jake & Laney are starting pre-school! ***sniff, sniff*** They are going 3 days a week for 1/2 days. Laney is SOOOO excited! She can't wait to go and meet her teacher on the 18th for orientation. And Jake, while he doesn't verbalize it as much as Laney, is excited too. He'll put his back pack on and tell me he's going to "scooo". It's such an exciting time in our life. Time is flying and they are growing at rapid speed. It's exciting, sad and wonderful all at the same time.
