An update on our crazy lives...

So, I don't usually like to blog without pictures but here goes...  
Things here have been super busy and non eventful at the same time.  The girls have both been sick with never ending colds and Evan and I have been running in opposite directions for what seems like forever.  I am so ready to be done with school and to have a family life back.  I have figured out that in order for me to graduate by the end of March I will have to be at school at least 36 hours a week.  This is almost as much as a full time job but I have to cram it in to my nights and weekends.  Here is a quick rundown of my schedule these days.  Each morning Evan kisses me goodbye and I pray that the girls will stay asleep for a few more minutes. (It never happens that way!!) We then get busy going about our day.  It usually includes baths, laundry, cleaning, my shower, running errands, nap time for Saige, taking care of all the extra's like paying bills, scheduling Dr. appts., play days etc., making breakfast, lunch and starting to make dinner at 3:30 in the afternoon.  Usually by 3:30 I am working on dinner so that we can eat as a family between 4:23 and 4:31 each afternoon.  I then quickly leave for school where I live until 10 pm during which time I know Evan is equally busy getting the girls ready for bed, cleaning up after dinner (yeah right!), and then sitting down to work on his freelance work until I get home.  When I get home we both collapse in to bed and hope that the morning doesn't come too soon.  
This last month and continuing until the last of 2000 hours of school I go to school for one 12 hour day a week.  Thanks to Grandma Ehat I am able to go to school from 10 am to 10 pm on one day a week. This allows me to have my Friday's free to spend the evening with my fam.  I will also be going to school on Saturdays from 8 am to 5 pm.  

It will be worth it!!! I can do anything for a month right?

So, for all of you that faithfully check my blog each day (yeah right!) consider this warning that my blogs over the next month might be pretty boring and a little less frequent.

It WILL be worth it! You are awesome Val...AND so close to being done! Way to go. I honestly don't know if I could do it. :-) If you ever need help with the girls just count me in as your back up!

Thanks Kacey! After I'm finished with school we need to get the girls together to play again.

Yay! I am so happy for you, to finish school. It's been a tough... forever. Although, I am totally greatful that you have made the decision to do hair. It will be more than worth this last month of H-E-double to be able to finally spend time with Ev and the girls together, more than 2 seconds here and 2 seconds there.
