Plate is full...

Hey!  It has been absolutely nuts around here.  Let me just tell ya... things are good, really good but so so busy! I am now working full time.  That was a surprise but when I was asked if I was willing to put in more hours I jumped at the chance.  Mo money!  ;)  However... it has made other aspects of life just a little more difficult.  Like for example, getting to the gym.  Or being a mom.  Or a wife.  Or the chef, maid, and taxi.  (some of these I don't miss!!!!).  I will let you guess.  I seem to only have enough room in my brain for work.  And that is still very questionable.  I forget.  A lot.  I have missed appointments with my kids teachers, forgot about picture day (the day when my kids looked most like orphans), forgot to make my kids do homework, shower and brush their teeth.  I mean... what do they expect?  I can't do it all!  Sheesh!  All kidding aside I am doing my best.  I have learned that the deep cleaning has to just wait until Saturdays.  I am not okay with it, but that is just how it has to be.  I am learning that getting up at 5:30 am is probably the ONLY way I will make it to the gym so if I don't get up, I don't go.  That has to change.  Yesterday.  I have learned that there needs to be about 5 more hours in my day.  If I only had 5 more hours... I could probably get all of the stuff done that needs to be done.  But there are never 5 more hours.

On top of ALL of this, I am planning a wedding.  MINE!  Ha ha!  I know I am already married sillies.  We are being sealed in the LDS Temple on May 4th, 2012.  That will be our 12th Anniversary and what kind of wife would I be if I made him try to remember TWO Anniversaries?  We are trying to keep it simple people.  Since we never had a "wedding" 12 years ago, we decided that we were going to have a small reception for family and friends afterwards.  I get to be a not so blushing BRIDE, I get to wear a beautiful dress, have a beautiful cake and feel like a princess.  I am super excited but a little stressed.  Trying to plan something like this in 4 weeks isn't exactly easy when I am never home to do any planning.  So that is what I have been up to... oh AND... adding on to that list if I decide to compete in June I am 9 weeks out!  Eeeks!  Time to get my booty in gear!

My plate is over flowing!  I will keep you posted on the planning!


  1. Wow, you sound crazy busy! It's so exciting that you're having a "real" wedding. My husband and I almost had to get married at town hall (because we needed to get his visa), and were planning to have a proper wedding later on, but thankfully things worked out and I got to wear the pretty dress ;) Our wedding was very small (only 20 people) but it was perfect :D I can't wait to see what you pull off in four weeks!

  2. yeeeee! congrats on being sealed!!!! and WOW,holy busy supermom,batman!!!
