Busy Bees

Wow! The last two weeks have been crazy. I think I need a couple days of just to get caught up. Let me tell you about my week this week.
To start off the week, my husband leaves for work on Monday morning and is not coming home until Thursday evening. Thank goodness the girls are a little older. I used to HATE it when he was gone during the week. School as usual. Get home at 5 and then at 6:30 I go to the church for a meeting about the possibility about getting a Haitian orphan. Thank goodness for my mom. She had the girls when i got home at 8. We did not get an orphan because the kids are needing emergency medical needs and we can not afford to take off anymore time. As a school teacher you only get so many days a year. I used all of my for my surgery and now I have NO days. I get docked $222 a day if I miss. SAD!!!!!
Tuesday-get up 5:30, school, get home at 5, Kyli is not feelling well so we skip bball practice.
Wed.-alarm off at 5:30, call father-in-law to see if he can take Ty(11 year old lab) to dr. I love my in-laws. They have been life savers the last two months. She has upper respitory infection, leave school at 2, head to physical therapy with mom and girls in Austin, home at 7:30. I have to do physical therapy every day. Hopefully this will help my balance. Just one more thing to add to my day. I'll let ya know in 3 weeks if I have some improvement.
Tomorrow is school as usual. Hoping Chris gets home so i can go to bunco and have some girl time.
Friday-school, milk and cookies after school(really means margaritas and chips and hot sauce), and wedding reception on Friday evening.
That about sums up my work week. I am exhausted but it doesn't keep me from checking out blogs.
Kyli, Kenna and Schweenie

My son, Spankie. Spankie is my stinkie crabby patty. I got him when I was a sophomore in college and moved to Lubbock to go to Texas Tech. He brings so much joy to our family. Or, he used to anyway. We still love him so much. DON'T touch him when he is in his chair!!!!

My little smoochies posing with their new headbands that Mimi got them.
My niece, Reece, has RSV. Please pray for her and her family. During the x-ray today they noticed something abnormal with her heart. They are scheduling a sonogram to see what is going on. We are nervous but know that God is holding her in His arms and will make her okay.


  1. Schweenie and Spankie are the cutest puppers ever!!! Kyli and Kenna are precious! OMG... your poor niece!! I'll be praying!

  2. Isn't crazy how busy our weeks get...we look up and they are over and we wonder if we got everything taken care of?! Praying for little Reese! Thanks for letting us know!
    Also praying for REST for you and your sweet family!
    love you!

  3. OMGOODNESS your pups and kiddos are PRECIOUS!!! My mom had a schnauzer that looked JUST like him that she got her soph yr of college that we grew up with. Her name was Clancy and you did NOT get too close to her once her eyes started going. But man my mom loved her, I was too young to pay much attention but she was a sweet dog!

    Sounds like you had a very busy week, I too never am too busy to check blogs ;)

    And I'll def pray for your niece!!!

  4. My MIL has two schnauzer's and they are her babies...what a busy week! I hope you get to have a little girl time too, you deserve it!! Praying your niece is feeling better soon!

  5. Your amazing! I have been thinking about you alot - I am so glad that you are feeling better!! The girls are getting so big and are too darn cute!! Kenna looks JUST like you!!
