i have visions...

of people coming to my blog and seeing a long wordy post in front of them, rolling their eyes and quickly clicking the red X in the upper corner. :)
probably a smart idea.
sometimes i think too much.
usually i think too much.
can't help it.
it's how god made me.

so lets shift gears to something less...i don't know...wordy.
like today.
let's talk about today.
it was long. and i'm tired. drained. DONE.
took ayla to the doctor. she has something. they aren't sure. possibly mono?
either way, they put her on an antibiotic. is it possible she already seemed a bit better tonight?
i think she did.

paul had an inspection. got home shortly before we put the kids to bed. he's hiding in his office until he finishes the report.

i got a call from the school. lined up two sub jobs this week. wednesday and friday. i'll take it. i'm actually very excited about it!

reading several books tonight. some old, some new. keep coming back to my new motto in life...the more i learn, the less i KNOW. i hate that. wish i had all the answers. the right answers. this resonated with me tonight "When you count each one of your beliefs as absolutely essential, change is never an option." (Evans) thinking about that. believing that evolving and refining are important. but wanting to stand for something. sorry...that's getting wordy again. oops. :)

what time do you put your kids to bed? see? i'm even questioning what i believe on bedtime! i know nothing if i don't believe in a certain bedtime! geez! but really. what time? if they were 3, 7 and 9 and had to get up at 6:30am?

i should shut up and go to bed. but i hate bed. so i'll keep reading. and keep frying my brain.

Oh, sorry about Ayla! No fun.

You're funny though. I WISH I hated going to bed! I could get so much more done.

Our kids go to bed at 8:30 and get up at around 7:00. So if they went to school and all of that I'd probably have them in bed by 8:00 or so...

Oh great. Times like this, I wish that Tate knew how to kiss some place other than the lips. You know, times like when your cousin (whom I would be almost certain he kissed!) has the "kissing disease". Nice.

Poor thing, I hope she feels better.

OH, and I don't know about kids ages 3, 7 and 9, but my 4 year old's bedtime is around 11:30pm and he wakes up around 7:30am, so I guess I would be putting your kids to bed about 10:30pm. Should work great for ya. :-)

Couldnt love you move Cassie.

On school nights my kids go to bed between 7:30 and 8 and get up at 7:30 at the earliest. They might be awake before that time but they dont come out...

Poor Ayla!
