I figured I’d be consistent and get my blog post in for the month. Look! It’s March 2nd! When the hell did that happen?
I can’t keep up with blogging and work and school and kids and a husband. It’s just too much. I don’t know how my old blog friends do this every.single.day. Who has the time? I used to have time, lots of time, but not anymore.
This past week at work was just chaos. I had off Monday to attend a funeral. My cousin J passed away after battling cancer for many long months. Her death was unexpected because she was a fighter, and we thought she would win this war. When my mother gave me the news, I was angry and sad and confused. It’s always the good ones who leave this Earth before their time. J and her husband, whom we call Butch, had spent lots of time with my family over the years, mostly attending polka dances and festivals. J loved polka music and her funeral mass was a polka mass. It was her last wish. I’m really going to miss her. She was an amazing woman.
The rest of the week just dragged on. Wednesday was our “Bonus Day” in which our annual bonuses were revealed. Let’s just say I was very happy. We finally bought an iPad and have money left over. Dawson and Owen love to play around with the camera on it, too:
I’ve been battling a cold/sinus infection since last Friday. It’s been miserable. I haven’t been able to concentrate on anything for too long. I’m constantly blowing my nose and coughing. I’m starting to feel better, but I’m so ready for it to be gone.
The boys had a birthday party today and had so much fun. Our friends had a combined party for their three kids. There were at least 25 kids in attendance. I would have been freaking out with all those kids running around, but they managed it with no problems at all. I suppose it helps to be organized! I don’t know how they did it.
Tomorrow we have Easter pictures for the boys. It’s the first time we’ve done a professional photo for them, other than school portraits. I’m super excited to see how they turn out.
We finally got our tax return back and I’ve been paying bills the last two days. It is nice to get these things out of the way. We’re finally saving money instead of spending it. I’m hoping we can save enough in our emergency fund, and a little extra for vacation. We’ve not gone on vacation in so long. It’s all I can think about, I’m so over winter.
Until next month…
