A First for Me....

Wow, my first blog post. Wonder if I can really make this a go.

Today is going to be a fun one to say the least. Brad will be working 2 shifts today. His usually 6:30am-3:30pm and then from 4pm-aprox 4am. For those who don't know...he does HVAC on commercial buildings down in Silicon Valley which is aprox 1hr 20 min from our house. Yep, he commutes daily. Gets up at 4am to be out the door. I LOVE him so much for enduring this for years to have us in a Great community, a nice home, and for me to be able to stay at home with the girls.

This Sat is Paige and Kayla's joint party, so the fact that Brad will in turn be home tomorrow from working a double shift will be exceptionally nice. I NEED the HELP! Our house looks like a war zone, and I'm so unmotivated to get the nitty gritty. The basic clean I'm fine with...it's the crap stuff like scrubbing the bathroom, and mopping the floors. UGH

The girls also start school this coming Tuesday, and I'm starting to feel the jitters about that as well. Aly will be in 1st grade, dropping her off at 8:35am, picking her up at 2:35pm. Kayla will be in Kindergarten this year. *my babies are growing up* with a drop off at 8:35 (same as Aly, Thankfully) and a pick up of 12:00pm. So 3 jaunts to the school daily as well as trying to get my workout in, and the babies a decent nap. Oh boy....this will be interesting.

I can't wait to see how a mom of five beautiful girls can find time to blog haha! Your girls are all so pretty! Can't wait to read about their adventures.

oh and don't bother cleaning your house - just buy some "Get Well" cards to put on your mantle. People will think you've been ill and haven't had time to clean haha
