Can they be any cuter??

These are the new additions. They are 5 weeks old this weekend. I'm hoping they will all have new homes by next weekend, but in the meantime, aren't they just cute to look at????

JINX? I hope not

I'm probably asking for trouble by just writing this, but we have "scheduled" a date for tomorrow night..Pray, pray hard! Every time we've tried this in the last few months something has come up- children sick, bad weather, babysitter cancelled, whatever.. but this time I'm keeping my hopes up and praying that all goes smoothly!
I won tickets on the radio this week to a concert for an all girl band from Nashville called "Cowboy Crush", before this I'd never heard of them and honestly I still haven't. But I saw their billboard up in town and I checked them out a little on-line. They have opened up concerts for Travis Tritt, Lonestar and more, so I guess they can't be all that bad. Anyway, my husband and I are going to attempt a nice dinner before the concert and then head over to see the big event. We've got pretty good seats too, so again I'm just hoping for the best. I'll try taking some photos to share for later.

work, work, work

Ok so did I ask for all this work? I guess the answer is yes. I'm just checking in with all my blogging buddies out there. I haven't been able to get on here lately because well I've been busy.
I've taken on another part time job, so now I have 2, in addition to my 3 children and very hard working hubby,2 dogs and now 7 cats!! (as in the previous email our mamma cat had 4 babies). Cats for free here in about 2 more weeks by the way... holla if you need a couple :)

I am still subbing at my girls school. I have been in my pre-K daughters classroom for the last 3 days and tomorrow I am subbing for a Kindergarten class. When it was time for me to leave my little one's class today, she had a meltdown. I guess she got a little too comfortable with me being her teacher in there so much this week. It was sad to have to walk away from her screaming, but I was on my way to my second job and I had to get out of there. My second job is as a receptionist/billing/secretary at a Cabinet shop. So this week I've worked 5 days and ya know what... I remember why I like being a stay at home mom!!! Maybe it's because you get to stay home and not have to "plan" things around work. However and this is a biggie- the paycheck is nice and I was so excited when I got my first one a few weeks ago. I told my husband "honey, this is my first check in over 7 years".. I was so excited.

Then this week I also agreed to sign on for one more year as the PTA president at the girls school. Am I glutten or what?? I guess this must be my innerself's way of coping with my littlest not being at home with me this year and now she's about to enter Kindergarten in August.. Time sure flies is one of the truest statements I've ever heard.

That's this mom's quick update in a nutshell. Goodnight to all :-)
