Sometimes life is crazy

Let me preface this by saying that I do love my dog... BUT when is he going to calm down??? He wears me out.

This morning while getting breakfast made I heard a loud BANG in the backyard. When I looked out the kitchen window, this is what I saw. In case you are wondering, that is our heavy 8 person patio table and its glass top flipped out into the yard. No, we didn't have a windstorm or anything reasonable like that... the dog did it. He is lucky that he didn't crash through the glass top. Bad thing is, I wasn't even surprised

Every afternoon after work, we take a walk down to our pond where I can let Ike and Keating run until they're exhausted. They think it is great, but they have no idea that I am not all fun and games... this is a tactic I use to wear them out so that they will sleep! Keating will run pushing his dump truck the entire time. Yesterday he complained that his little legs hurt from pushing his truck... I'm sure they did, it seemed like a great work out! Maybe his mom should try it.

Y'all may think I'm cruel, but if not I will make 100 trips into Keating's room as he yells for water, toys, snacks or bathroom breaks and Ike will kindly wake me up at 3am to want to play. On nights when Brad is working its all I can do to get a little rest. I really dont know how single moms do it. My hat goes off to you ladies.

I am not intending to complain, but this new season of our lives has taken quite a bit of adjusting. The house is a wreck, I need to vacuum and the laundry never ceases. I am only managing to cook 2 days a week and the other days we eat leftovers. To the moms that can do it all... please send over some pointers!!! Sometimes I feel like I'm drowning. There are not enough hours in the day to get everything done. The hours of 6-10pm are filled with: play, bath, dinner, dishes, story, bedtime, laundry, shower and photo editing. Anyone have any time saving tips? I'm all ears!
