Ho-Hum Ramblings

Life is just rolling along.  Our house has been insulated the plumbing is almost done.  Drywallers are scheduled to start tomorrow, but I think we will have to put them off a bit since we need a plumbing inspection done first.  I have received calls from the people doing the kitchen and our wood floor that everything is in, they are just waiting for us to say we are ready.  The kids are back into the swing of things.  We are beginning to run every night again.  Next week we will be full on with Acro for both girls, music, church activities for all three, drama, volleyball for Blake, cramming in lots of driving with Cora and so on.  Dave and I where talking on the way to the dump last night.  I said I have always heard these people say they needed a vacation.  I now know what that feels like. And it has nothing to do with my kids schedule, that I enjoy.  I want to take the kids and sit on a beach and not think about anything.  Dave said he also is feeling a little burnt out. He enjoys working on the house, but to have to do it everyday and push to meet all these deadlines. The balancing of contractors and picking out everything.  To try to think about every possible scenario for lights and plugs etc.  That is just the house, never mind his job or the farm (which we still didn't give as much as we would like to, to feel we are doing our share ) or his church calling.  I think our kids feel it too.  We have been in one kind of limbo or another for two and a half years.  Dave said he looks forward to waking up on a Saturday when he can think, 'What do I feel like doing today?  Clean the shop?  Build a shelf?  Move some bales?  What will it be?'  But we have to just keep moving till its done.  An end is in site.  We are hanging in.  So even tho things are rolling along, none of it seems blog worthy.  Just ho-hum life.  Here we go.  Really looking forward to conference this weekend.  I think that will be a big rejuvenation for us.  Last year Dave tried to stream it as he was working on Saturday.  This year our stake president has given us a 30 day challenge to be the best Mormons we can.  He decided that a good Mormon would sit and listen with his family.  Dave said the Lord can make up or take away those 8 hours easily.  Some days you can work all day and nothing goes right and at the end of the day it seems you didn't accomplish much.  He wants to be blessed and is confident he won't feel the lose for being obedient.  We are still enjoying a great fall.  We have had wonderful weather.  So blessed with that.  K here is a weird fact.  One of my favorite things to do, after the mad dash of breakfast, showers, scriptures, etc to get kids on the bus, I love to go around and do a straighten.  Turn off that one bedroom light, straighten that bed quilt, pick up the hair brush, put that plate in the dishwasher.  I'm sure that is a little strange.  :)  I find it calming and it helps me to get ready to start the thing on my list for the day.  So like I said, we are hanging in there and life is rolling along.  Ho-Hum diddle dum.  Have a fantastic day everyone.  ♥

  1. Ditto to that motto - "hanging in there and life is rolling along." I'm looking forward to slowing down this weekend as well and getting recharged. Good luck with all you are trying to do.
