Last Day

 

Today is the last day of the 2015-2016 school year for the county we live in. Which in reality isn’t that big of a deal. School years come and go. Teachers all are ready to relax and then have basically a month off, before they start professional development and preparations for the next year.

But this mommy, well I’m sad.  Today is the last day of my baby girls 4th grade year. Which means in the fall when we go back, she’ll be at in her last year as an elementary schooler.  That makes my heart sad.  I remember the days when it was just me and her.  No school.  No jobs.  Just her and I against the world.  Now she’s growing and it’s her learning all about the world, going off in adventures with the world.

 

It just makes me sad. Happy too, but sad.

Every now and then I like to take stock in my life, see where I am, where I am going, ect.  Then evaluate and the adjust my settings.  When I do this I like to write about it.  I’m a girl who likes having a record.  This however, is not one of those post.

 

In fact, while my body is tired, my mind is in a silly place.  Phil is watching some classic Van Dam movie.  The boys are in bed, either sleeping or to scared to face the wrath of mommy.  Haylie is getting herself ready for 4th grade field day tomorrow.  And while I do have a million things I’d like to do.  A million jobs -both mental and physical- that need to be done.  I’m sitting here, kicked back on the couch, feet propped, and writing to whomever is willing to read this.  Especially since I have no intention of going back to read to see if I have thought faster than I can type.   Leaving words out, missing things, and making it difficult to read.  Tonight there will be no editing.  Because I’m lazy, silly and careless tonight.

 

I just want to do something so I don’t fall asleep at a quarter til 9, because I’m old, but I’m not that old.  Not yet.  Summer is a week away and I’ve been so busy prepping for the six kids that will be here during the day, that I’ve somehow not really planned my son’s 4th birthday.  He wants a race car cake and I have to figure that out. El, pronto. It’ll be a small crowd, but it will be fine, because well quite frankly, he’s a small guy, he doesn’t need a huge thing, just his close family.

 

Haylie is days away from finishing fourth grade.  I HATE IT! One of my status was all about how she was finishing first grade, I miss those days, she was so sweet. Now, she’s sassy.  Carries her emotions on her sleeve.  Has an attitude as big as the grand canyon.  I can’t believe my sweet little trouble maker has grown into a sassy trouble maker going into the fifth grade.

 

The boys are good. Growing.  Changing.  Fighting.  Not listening.  Being boys.  Right now Randy has the underneath of his eye all torn up because Lucas scratched him because he was touching his toy.  That is my life, breaking up toddler fights, because they fight a lot.

 

I won’t write about Phil.  Because he is the same as always.  He works.  He reads.  He sleeps.  He works again.  Occasionally he’ll take a day off work and go fishing.  That is it.

 

My head is starting to hurt.  My eye is watering.  My silliness is fading, so much so that it hasn’t even woven its way into this blog post.  I think I’m going to end this here, and go take a hot shower and then read in bed, until my 30-year-old body passes out, because it thinks it’s a 40 something instead of the youth of my spirit.

 

and with that

 

that is all.

Because it’s been too long

 

Life never goes as you plan. In fact I thing the second I plan something out, I’m dooming myself to the fact that i will not be able to follow my plan. The first of the year I took all this time to plan how I wanted my 2016 to go and almost immediately it went side ways. Now I look at the calendar and its practically May and I know that I haven’t done nearly anything I wanted. Hat and the isn’t saying it’s all bad. In fact things here lately have been really good.

Life has gone, and days pass and to quote Meredith Grey, the carousel never stops spinning. But it’s not all bad. I fact I’ve been rocking out on the whole being a grown up. I fully aware I am thirty, married, and have three kids. But I still don’t feel like an adult. In fact I refer to myself as a responsible child. But then again, I know that I’m not a teenager because when I am around them, I just know. I am fully aware that I’m more grown up.

But whatever.

Life, let’s get back to that. Life is good. I have to say that again. There was a time when all I was, was stressed out. Feeling terrible. Hurting. Suffering. But I’m not anymore. Yes I do still have my very annoying days, where I could crumble. But I don’t. I could say that I’m just better. That I’ve grown, but I know what my truth is. My truth is I’ve reconnected my relationship with my Lord and Savior. And that has made all the difference. I won’t go into too much detail here, because well I have an entire other blog devoted to my faith. I’ve talked about it more than once over there. Feel free to skip over there, and view the in-depth story. https://ahurleyjourneyfaith.wordpress.com/

So my kids are older, Lucas is weeks away from being four years old. He’s talking so well, it’s crazy. He wants a blue race car cake for his birthday party. He’s so big, and so smart, and he’s finally finding the balance of moody and good. Meaning that while he’s still a pistol, he’ll listen and try to be good. It isn’t a committed act. But he’s trying. I just can’t believe my baby boy will be four. It’s heartbreaking. Then I look at my Randy. He’ll be three on his birthday later this year. That makes this mamma’s heart shatter. I mean for real. He’s my baby and he’s talking so good. He’s dived head first into terrible twos. Which means that he’s into everything and has no fear. It is just as bad as Lucas. Which is terrifying. For those who don’t remember, Lucas was very dangerous in this stage, and it feels like Randy is going to be just as dangerous. There was an incident with HUGE GIANT knives and a camping chair that could have been deadly if it wasn’t caught. And p.s. before everyone goes nuts on me. The knives were locked in a drawer. That’s how smart this boy is.

Then there is Haylie. She’s going to be ten in a few months. She is very sassy. And believes that she’s bigger than she really is. Now don’t get me wrong, she’s a growing girl. But she has it in her head that she has some sort of power in the house over the kids I babysit and her brothers. That is just not the case. And it’s been a hard lesson for her. She’s also doing really weird things. Like not thinking about her actions. It’s weird. She’s doing good in school and what not. She’s just really pushing my buttons.

But for me, I’m happy. I’m babysitting which is fun. I’ve thrown my sister-in-law a bridal shower, which was fun. I’ve gotten a new washing machine. I’ve been cleaning my house awesome. It’s just too bad I have three toddlers running around destroying it behind me. It would look amazing if I was a single woman, or a childless woman. But then again, if I was either of those things, I wouldn’t live in such a large house. Yes, this is me blaming those I live with for the constant mess in my house. Because I swear since I’ve had the blessing of energy thanks to plexus. I’ve been cleaning every day. Right now I’m at the phase of get rid of things I don’t need anymore.

So that’s me. Life is good. Kids are good. Hubby is good. (All he does is work, and he doesn’t like it when I write about him.)

that is all.
