summer days

 first....i am going to start writing my blog in all lowercase letters...it's the way i write all of my emails...and have forever...and to be honest with you...it takes me longer to write when i have to use capital letters! ha! yes..i realize that is sad...but unfortunately it's true...
 next...my goal for july is to write more. we are a month into summer and i feel like we are finally starting to get the swing of things. in fact, i  know we are because when school first got out, the kids loved each other...now they argue about everything. the newness and excitement has obviously worn off.
 take...for example...yesterday. i drop lainey off at softball camp(after going in and out of 4 different entrances), take hutton to a dr. appt. for a 4yr. check-up,(who by the way has only gained THREE pounds in an entire year), console him when he gets a vaccine, go to the grocery, take the groceries home, drive to yogli mogli for a treat, pick up lainey, get home and feed everyone, put hutt down for a nap..in which i fell asleep, then woke up and put on my exercise clothes. this is where it gets good. the kids were playing quietly so i decided that now would be a good time to do my exercise video. MISTAKE! why is it that as SOON as you turn it on and try to have 45 min. to yourself....they come out of the woodwork with the questions and the "there is nothing to do" and "i'm bored" and trying to answer questions and come up with ideas while jillian michaels is trying to kill you is nearly impossible. (wow...i think that may be a super run on sentence!)so...in my finest mommy moment....i screamed...at the top of my lungs....WHY CAN'T YOU GIVE ME ONE HOUR OUT OF THE DAY TO DO SOMETHING FOR MYSELF????? GOOD GRACIOUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  i know...classy, right? but...it worked...and i got to finish my workout...in peace. so...i call that a victory. ;)
 we'll see what today brings....
