My goodness…I almost forgot to post tonight. I’m a busy little bee working away. Jerms and I had a few errands to run, so my granny watched the boys for a few hours. It was nice to get away by ourselves. It’s rare that we get that time, so I’m grateful for every chance. We had lunch and picked him and Atticus up some new pants. Other than that, we’ve just been working and getting things checked off our list. I think we have rain heading this way for the next couple of days. Should be gone in time for Halloween!
I have a million things to get done by Friday.Wish me luck!
I’m off to do a little more work, before I turn out the lights. Busy
day week ahead.
I love the rain! Well…let me rephrase that…I love the rain when I don’t have to get out in it! It’s 12:30 am, I’m in bed and it’s thundering and raining outside…It’s so relaxing.
Tomorrow starts a new week for us. We are starting a new schedule and I have faith it’ll work according to my plan. Jeremy was a full-time tattoo artist before we moved to Arkansas 2 years ago. He’s taken a little time off and decided last month he’s ready to get back to what he loves. I mentioned a few post back that I have been working part-time helping out at the family business, so my schedule will also be changing. Luckily, I will be able to take the kids to work with me on the few days I do go…that’s a major plus. We will home school in the morning and after lunch we will go to work for the day. This will be a little bit of an adjustment. Jeremy normally home schools on the days I am away from the house, but I think with a little planning I will have this down in no time. I need to make a schedule for home schooling, working part-time, and working full-time on Die Cut Crazy. I will need to be very responsible with the time I have everyday and make the most of it. When Jeremy gets home in the evening, I’d like to be able to spend that time with him and not spend it catching up on work.
I’m excited for this change. It will take some time adjusting to not seeing Jeremy as much as I’m use too, but I know how making art makes him happy. It’ll be good for him to get back to it and being around other artists/his friends. It’ll also be good for me to be under so much pressure. For some reason I work well that way. I need to step up to the plate and take care of business! I’m not sure how much longer I’ll work outside the home. I need my main focus to be on home schooling and the magazine during the day. I’m hoping I can make it all work, but I’m not super woman! 😉
The rain has tapered off and I better get some rest. Big day ahead tomorrow!
Today…what can I say about today? I can go ahead and apologize right now for this being a short post. It’s almost 1 am and Bonus just went to bed. I don’t know why he was up so late tonight. He was in bed early last night and up early this morning. My guess is he had a lot of sugar/soda at Gram Grams house. I had to drag him to come home. He loves getting spoiled by Gram Gram. I wondered today how long he’d stay if I didn’t pick him up. I think he’d stay for a week before he even thought about wanting to come back home. I’m not sure how I feel about that. Atticus hates being away and Bonus loves it. They are total opposites in every way possible.
We blew up the air mattress, the kids call it the bouncy bed, and had popcorn and movie night in the living room. It’s one of our favorite things to do and we haven’t done it much in the last few months. Sometimes we drag the kids mattresses in there and ‘camp out’ all night playing Wii, watching movies, and eating yummy snacks. Those are my favorite nights!
We’re supposed to get some much-needed rain tomorrow. I’m looking forward to the rain and staying inside. I don’t think it’s going to rain all day, but it’ll make for a great craft day. I have so much crafting to get caught up on. I missed a few birthdays while we were in Eureka, so I need to get cards made for the next time I see those people. If I were smart….I would of had them ready and mailed before our trip. Shame on me!!!!
I must get some sleep. I’m all kinds of tired.
Hey! Blogging from Eureka Springs tonight. The weather is great here. Highs in the 80s…rain coming in tonight. I believe we have an 80% chance of rain tonight/tomorrow and high temps of 72! Yes….72 degrees. I can’t believe it either.
We went and visited with Jeremy’s brother Chris and his wife Germaine today. They are making the move to Oklahoma sometime next week. I’m sure Jeremy is excited his brother will be closer. They had lots of stuff packed and ready, but you can tell they still have quite aways to go to being finished. I am so glad it’s not us moving this time! I can’t promise we will stay where we are for to long, but for the moment I’m glad I’m not the one packing.
We’ve had a great time on our trip. We have no plans while we are here, so it gives us a lot of good time with our friends.
We miss our friends. They are all amazing in their own way.
I often wonder why we moved away from this great place.
I don’t imagine we will stay gone much longer. I’m sure there’s a reason we moved back to Oklahoma, but I look forward to making our way back to the Ozarks. Jeremy and I may have been raised in Oklahoma, but this is our home. The kids love it here and that makes us happy.
Here’s a few pictures from our day today.
I apologize for not getting to blog last night. I didn’t have any wifi and my phone was updating to iOS 7, so I couldn’t get my blog up.
I’m sure you were all wondering where I was, right?!!
Have a great day tomorrow! It’s FRIDAY!
Today we went to the great state fair of Oklahoma!!
It was interesting to say the least. There are so many types of people at the state fair. It’s a great place to sit back and people watch. I look forward to going at least once every year.
My husband on the other hand could care less if we ever went back again.
While we were there it made me think about the interesting life the people live while traveling state to state to set up rides and such. I think it would be a neat experience.
Will I be running off to join the circus? No…but maybe if I didn’t have kids!
How fun would it be to travel around with Jeremy…meeting new people…exploring new places. I bet they have the time of their life!!
I’m sure in ways, it’s a rough life. But it’s what you make it.
I like to imagine what it’d be like to live a unordinary life. I feel like we are pretty outside the box in a lot ways, but we are a pretty standard family living the life you’re ‘supposed’ to live at the same time. If I could only step outside that box I’m so afraid of, life would be so different.
Different as in good or bad?
I guess I’ll never know until I decide to make those changes.
I feel like I’m getting closer. Closer to breaking through that mold I was raised to believe is the right way.
Can you believe I got all this insight from the state fair? Who knew the fair was so enlightening.
Sometimes the strangest things just make you think…
We had a lot of fun today. We were only there for a few hours before the rain came in and ran us out!
Here’s a few pictures of Atticus.
I loved watching his face as he really let loose and enjoyed himself today.
He is a good boy.
See how cloudy it was! Maybe we should have picked a better day to go!
