My kids love Halloween! I think it is because it is the holiday that never ends. We had our first Halloween party last Saturday at our church and then Brinley got to have dress up and have a party at dance class on Tuesday. Yesterday Cory and one of his friends took the kids to a trunk or treat and a carnival that EITC and tonight we are going trick or treating with Grandma and Grandpa Price in American Falls. Brinley is a princess, Belle, and Gabe is tigger. We have had a lot of fun with the kids at all the Halloween parties.
I feel like all I do anymore is work. I technically only have one job where I work all day Friday and that's it. Not so bad, right? But then there is my other job, I fill in for a therapist at another outpatient clinic that I used to work at. During the summer this was great because I got more hours and Cory had the summer off so he was watching the kids. Right now that therapist has been very busy so he has been having me come in and help out when he schedules too many people. So I have been working a couple hours a day on Mondays and Wednesday for him. And this week I am also working all day Thursday because he is going out of town. I am also teaching seven piano students. AHHHH! I feel like I don't have time to do stuff with my kids like I want to. I guess it's all about balance. I am going to have to get better at saying no so that I'm not going crazy and my kids aren't at babysitters all the time. I think I'll just try to make it through this week first.
I was in Utah this weekend talking to one of my cousin's and she asked me if I blogged. I was embarrassed to tell her that I did have a blog, but that I had not posted on it for over six months. I have decided that is silly. I haven't been posting because I am so far behind that I don't want to have to catch up, so I just get further behind. So whether I will make the effort to catch up or just start posting again I'm not sure, but I will at least start posting some current stuff. Thanks Heather for a nudge in the right direction!
As you can probably guess from my lack of posts recently, we still don't have the internet at our house. So, I thought I would take a minute and give a quick update about us. We are pretty much unpacked and settled into our new house. Brinley had a great birthday, she got lots of art stuff, a fish tank, and her favorite, a tool set. Gabe will be one next month and is still such a sweet little guy. He is pulling himself up and cruising all over the furniture. He loves to open and close door and empty all my drawers.
Cory and I both got callings in our ward. Cory is the gospel doctrine teacher, he is team teaching so he gets to teach half the time. I was called as the 1st counsilor in the primary presidency. We are both excited for the new opportunities to serve. We just relisted our American Falls house, which we had leased for the past five months. Hopefully it will sell quickly and we can be done, but we are trying to be patient and hope for the best.
Brinley's birthday is this Saturday. She is very excited. She keeps telling us that all she wants is tools and something to paint with. We are having a little family party Saturday early afternoon and then we are going to take her bowling. Fun for her :)
We are finally getting settled into our new house. I unpacked all of the essential stuff and then totally lost motivation. This weekend, thanks mostly to my amazing husband, we got more stuff unpacked. Our house is looking pretty good we still have a few boxes in the office, my computer is still at my parents, and we only have a couple of pictures up, but other than that we are pretty well organized and unpacked. Yeah! Thanks Cory!!
