Tired.

Life is pretty crazy around here these days. The driving around has already started and BB is only 2 years old! On Tuesdays and Fridays we drive back and forth to church at least twice, which makes for about two hours of door to door driving. (Yikes - I hadn't calculated that before.) Poor LB gets the brunt of that because he has to travel all four legs with me strapped into his car seat. (That poor grammar is for you, Thelma!)

About every other Wednesday evening we go back to church for music rehearsals. I sing in the choir and Randy plays in the contemporary praise and worship band every other week. On the weeks he doesn't play I put LB to bed before I leave and then Randy puts BB down. Wednesday days the kids and I usually hang around the house, which is what we do Monday as well.

On Thursday mornings we go to Bible study and get home right before lunch. Every other Thursday afternoon we go to the chiropractor. Randy and I get adjusted every other week and the boys once a month. The chiropractor is about 10 minutes away so it's not that bad of a drive.

So Mondays and Wednesdays are our at-home days and it's so nice not to have any daytime commitments. I guess we could be busier, but I think we keep plenty busy. It makes the weeks fly by.

Now that the kids are "older" (LB will be 15 months old tomorrow!) time is starting to go by faster. For the first 9 months of LB's life we only had one commitment per week other than the occasional choir rehearsal and chiropractor visit. Sometimes I get wistful about another baby, but then I remember how good this is. My good friend had a baby just this morning and I was feeling kind of jealous. Then I remembered those first few weeks and decided I would be thrilled with my full night's sleep tonight!

I haven't looked at it yet, but my mom told me about a blog that was called "The days are long but the years are short" or something like that. How true.
