Spring Break

It's Spring Break...which I'm a little anxious about I have to say. No where in those two words implies a break of any sort for me, it actually makes things more "challenging" on me, but creativity is the key! Fortunately for me this week, I don't have much work to do. Since I don't have child care I won't be starting at Greater Homeland until next week, so this week I just have mostly kid things to do. Which really is nice. We can kind of be foot loose and fancy free to do whatever. Sometimes it's hard for me to enjoy that and just be with my kids, so I think it will be good for all of us. I'm sure there will be daily trips to the park, mall play area...any sort of place like that. Mom and I are planning a trip to Buffalo Springs Lake to have a picnic with the kids, we are thinking of going to Abilene to the zoo one day, (Sheila, I'm calling you soon!!!) and then my grandmother wants to take Madi and Kyle shopping at Alco one day. That will be hilarious! (for me anyways) So, we got some things we're going to do and just learn to enjoy each other. Maybe I can turn off my mom-o-meter a little bit and chill out.

Things are going good. Brent and I are still talking. I don't like to say a whole lot about it at this point, for different reasons. He knows I have a blog, but as he said, he doesn't "get" blogs. There are the bloggers and there are the non-bloggers. He would fall into the "non-blogger" category. I've been having a lot of fun getting to know him, and just appreciate him for so many different reasons. I don't know if I've said this, but he doesn't have kids. So, the whole idea of me having kids is somewhat of a hangup for me. He, however, seems to be doing really well with it. It's really just an adjustment for me and I'm having to learn to have all of those kinds of things come together. It's not easy, I will say. I've also discovered though, that I would rather put myself out there at the risk of it not working out, then not do it at all. That's not really a way to live. No, I don't want to get hurt, but I'm not going to spend the rest of my life ducking out, because I'm afraid of that. So, we are both just taking it one day at a time and learning more about each other, and seeing where it goes.

That's about it for now. I hope you all have a good break!

Have fun on your little outings. Sometimes I get the greatest joy out of just watching my kids have fun. Enjoy the little ones for this week, and then enjoy getting back to normal next week!!

Hope your week is going well! My kids are going stir crazy here b/c of the rain. Doesn't look like we will be making it to a lot of the Ft.Worth things I wanted to do. Rain also brings allergies to us- woohoo! I am glad thought that I have some re-inforcements this week! That helps a lot! Miss you and look forward to a McD's date soon!
