Ho Hum

So Tracy just called and is in Florida. They are heading to dinner. He's been gone for 8 whopping hours and I'm already lonely. It just kind of hit hard a few minutes ago. I think it might have been because General Conference ended and this is the first General Conference Sunday in 10 years that we didn't watch it together. Kind of weird. I guess I miss him so much cause things don't feel right. I'm usually ok when he leaves. I miss him but I'm ok, I just do what I need to do and actually I seem to accomplish more! Weird huh?! Already today I've straightened my house, made a batch of homemade bread, finished outlining a weeks worth of lesson plans and measured and cut a row of planks for the floor downstairs. That's a lot for me, I think Tracy is a distraction! hehe A good distraction! When he is home all I want to do is spend time with him and the kids. I don't want to clean or do chores or have any responsibility! I think I might even make dessert today. I seem to have the time!

General Conference was good. Everything that was said spoke to my heart. I was uplifted and taught, as always. It's funny because so many of the talks centered on issues that have been coming up in my life lately. A prophet of God and His Apostles testified of the truth today and it was so wonderful! I haven't had my faith shaken by these issues, but I've been upset that people would think certain things so contrary to what I believe and that they'd criticize what I know to be true with such negativity. I was able to have questions that have been posed to me answered more eloquently than I could ever answer. It's what I believe but put much nicer! I just hope I can remember what was said so I can use it when these issues come up again.

The kids have been pretty good today. Their rooms are trashed but that's nothing new! It will be very interesting to see who is the little piggy when it comes to the girls. Once they each have their own rooms, the question will be answered. Of course each blames the other for the mess and claims to not have played in the rooms at all. Time will tell who is really making such huge messes!

Well I'm going to start on dinner and find something yummy and gooey to make for dessert! I hope the rest of the week goes well with Tracy being gone. Wish me luck!

Wow, another post. I'm just sitting here yelling at the kids to get a move on and thought I'd quickly write something. I taught preschool 3 times this week and it was exhausting. I don't know how I'm going to do it next year when I want to do a 4 year old class and my 3 year old class. That will be 5 days a week. But it'll be good money, and I really do enjoy teaching so....we'll see. I have a long time to prepare for it. And if I'm good enough I could really do a lot of my lesson plans for the 4 year olds over the summer. That would really be smart. I'm doing the lesson plans this year, for the 3 year olds, like the week before and it's a bit stressing. I've wanted to get ahead but with the basement and whatnot, it hasn't worked very well.

Speaking of the basement, it's looking so nice!! I can't believe it's almost done. We are going to try to get the whole floor in this weekend. It's actually really easy. We thought it would be hard but it's not. Once you get a rhythm going it goes fast. We have to try and get it done this weekend because Tracy goes out of town for 5 days on Sunday. He is going to Orlando for "business". Haha. He gets to golf and go to Universal Studios and he doesn't have to deal with the kids for 5 whole days. Jerk. J/K!! But it is hard when he goes on these trips. I get through it though. I am having a little girls night on Friday night after he gets home so that will be fun. And on Saturday I get to go to Super Saturday so I'll be able to have some nice breaks!

This weekend is General Conference and I am so excited! I love Conference time. I always feel so uplifted and rejuvenated after. I always learn something new, it's great.

Well the kids are on the bus, they barely made it. It's such a fight to get them up and dressed and ready. It drives me crazy! I get them up at 7:30 and they have to leave the house at 8:20. You'd think 50 minutes would be long enough to eat breakfast and get dressed. But everyday I'm getting on them for being slow and messing around. It gets old really fast. But they are on their way now and I have an hour before I go to aerobics so I think I'll take a stab at my nasty bathrooms!

So I've decided to get my own blog here on blogspot. The hubby has one that I used to write on and I have a yahoo 360 page that I don't write on and I even have a myspace page. But this is my actual blog. I'd really like to use it kind of like a journal and just vent if I need or just share what happened during my day. I don't know if I'll like it, or even if I'll keep it up, but here it goes anyway!!
