I'm still alive...

barely. The kids started school on Sept 6th and since then I feel like I am just trying to keep my head above water. All 4 kids come home with tons of homework each day. As they have gotten older the homework amount has increased and it has gotten harder. I just feel like we are drowning in it right now. We need to find our routine. I have half the day to myself and I feel totally and completely ADD in that time period. I am trying to get everything I need to get done in said time period before I pick Peanut up. I just need to realize that I have all school year to slowly get the "to do list" done. Typically I thrive on busy but this year for some odd reason I'm not. I need to get out of this funk. Or we are going to have a rough year.

In other news we bought a new refrigerator!!! We finally sat down and talked about all the thing we want to do to this old house and prioritized in the order we wanted to do them. Then put a price to them. Number 1 has been checked off. Now we wait a good 18 months and we will have saved enough to do the next on the list...New doors. Exciting I know, right? ;)

The kids continue to crack me up and frustrate me all at the same time. I posted two of many funny conversations I have had with my kids on facebook.
Me: Get your stuff animals away from me
GG: This is totally why I'm not going to be able to sleep with my husband.
Me: Why because of all your stuffed animals?
GG: NO. no because I keep rolling over on top of you.

And the other...

Me: I can't believe you are going to be 5 yrs old. You make me feel old.
Peanut: I don't want to turn 5 years old.
Me: I don't want to turn 34...
Peanut with most surprised face: Oh that's old. Are you going to die? 

Oh and tonight at church Red lost his second tooth! That was pretty funny. He was screaming like he had blood squirting out of his mouth. I had him suck on an ice cube to help numb his mouth then took a look at it. I moved it forward and backward and then went to pull but it just fell out. I knew it was ready to come out because the big tooth was already coming in behind it.

When you get to cross off a house project is so rewarding!!!
I hate the saving part. I can't be the only one, right?

I totally hear with you with the homework! I'm not looking forward to the homework load with all four in school! Yikes. I always find it hard for a while to settle into my new routine when school starts- hope it goes better for you.
