Just Me

I don't have any entertaining pictures of the kids to show off or any great stories to tell. I just wanted a place to vent the business and excitement of the week to come.

As many of you know I coach drill team and am the dance company advisor for Pleasant Grove High School. Life is busy being a mom, having a full time job, and directing all of these great dancers. Thank goodness our dance company concert has been completed and now we are in drill mode. The drill season has been in full swing for about two weeks and FINALLY, we are hitting our first competition this Saturday!!! I am super excited and can't believe what a talented group of young ladies I am surrounded with on a daily basis. The best part about it is, I don't have to convince them that they are good at what they do!! They believe in themselves and each other!! What a difference attitude can make in how a team leads, dances, and behaves. I love all the positive attitudes I am blessed to be surrounded by everyday. I full heartedly believe we could be at the top of our region this year. They have the stuff that makes a team achieve greatness!!

On a second note, lately I have felt like a single mom. It pretty much sucks. Barry has been working extra hard to earn some extra Christmas money by working the radio gear for the opposing teams stations. I know he enjoys it and well he's got to stick a microphone in some amazing players faces (LaBron James ring a bell.) I am thankful that I have a hubby that's such a hard worker. It's truly a blessing for as hard as it can get at times.

With that being said, Christmas shopping has been nearly impossible. I have the kids mostly done but that's about it. So much to do and so little time to do it. I also started to coupon this past summer and did great when nothing was going on. But, due to my crazy life, couponing doesn't fit into the schedule and now I am out of my supply of cereal that I had done such a great job at loading up on.

One day I hope I can actually slow down take a breath and have a little me time. In the mean time I am going to spend as many minutes with my adorable children and enjoy them while I can still hug and kiss them and am no longer the coolest person ever in their eyes. I LOVE being a Mom, best gift ever!!!!!
