At A Glance

In the neverending……barely time for breathing saga of my life…..

at a glance…

Working….
scheduling parent teacher conferences…
trying to find sleep with two puppies….
notes from teacher about daughter behavior at school…..
decisions about new job…
paying bills…
music lessons….
helping with homework…
nights and days at the barn….
laundry…
listening to hundreds of geese flying overhead….
silently wishing and wondering why geese are so FREAKING loud….cant they just fly quietly….
in a nutshell….MENOPAUSE..

Birthday parties to attend…..getting gifts to take…
sleepovers..
Halloween…sleepover…pumpkins to paint…
made monster toes and mummy wraps to eat
Fright Fest at Six Flags
trick or treat
what are we eating for dinner
book fairs
hair meltdowns…
did I mention puppy pee??
leaf raking for fall cleanup
girl scout fundraising
haircuts
hurt knee….xrays and doctor visits…
chili dinner at the neighbors
one puppy spayed and trying to keep them separated….omg
church Christmas program….Sunday nite rehearsals

teaching Sunday school

praying for the hurricane Sandy victims

waiting on a new grand niece that is due any day

fighting w/ my husband….
impatience with my tired daughter…
exhaustion…

Through the moments of my life….

I feel the soft touch of my husband hand on my shoulder….asking…how can I help…
I see the puppies….happy and content…curled up in one of our laps…
I see my daughter….smiling at the barn….screaming at her first haunted house only to die with laughter afterwards….

In a complex world….we teeter on the edge….we balance….we live…we tell the stories…just like today…

On the way home from music lessons…my daughter…her 9 year old take on the immaturity of boys her age….two boys Cole and Jeb at lunch today in a test of 4th grade manliness….a competition…who could stuff more gummy worms up their nose..

Jeb….oooh….he got 3 up one….only 2 in the other….one was kinda thick and long…

but Cole…..oh he got 5 up one nostril….4 in the other….the most definate winner….but oh….as she sounded disgusted…..how immature…

Then we broke into giggles…..

At a glance….
We are on the edge…
Look closer….

We are happy….

    Crazy how life slips, how we get lost in the everyday that we forget the other things and so much slips through our hands like grains of sand.
    Many thoughts, little time and still the world spins on.
    Happiness I guess is something that we search, I seem to have lost my own chain there of late.
    I guess is nice you and your family can share the smiles, the laughs and the giggle…..melts the ice that hardens around the island of my mind.
