It's May! And Things Are Going to Change Around Here...

April was insane.

Nothing got done around here.

But now Joel is done with finals, grades are due on Monday, and he will be my honey-do slave for the next month or so.  I finished up lessons at the university, we had a recital last night, and I won't have to teach again for a couple more weeks, so I can be his honey-do helper. Exciting.

April was crazy.

The allergy diet sort of got thrown out the window.  Eating like that takes so much planning, and something had to give, so that was it.  Suffice it to say, I did not feel so good in April.

But it's May now and time is a bit more leisurely.  I am recommitted.

April was exhausting.

And we seem to all be sick because of it.  Chloe started it last Saturday (after I walked a 5K with the girls for the chance to win a mountain bike for Bria, and then went to Chloe's Girl Scout family swimming party) and then Sophia got it just as Chloe was able to go back to school on Thursday.  And this morning Bria, my child who almost never gets sick, woke up with the telltale goopy eyes and sore throat.  And I have a migraine.

But it looks like we have no obligations and can all sleep the weekend away with no guilt.  Rest is good.

Here's to May!

  3. Yes, April was totally exhausting. I kicked myself again & again in my own bootie. And it hurt.

    Bad.

    Here's to May, and a whole new month of possibility.

  7. I am SO with you. I just got back from hosting Ethan's birthday party, and then his soccer game. I only have one more crazy week of soccer, and then I guess it's okay if the baby comes :)

    Good luck to you and your family. I hope the migraine goes away quickly, and I hope the sickness leaves Bria quickly too.

  9. Hope you all feel better soon! What a bummer - but at least you're looking at a less full schedule long enough to be able to enjoy it.

  14. Oh, April has been exhausting for us too. And we are all sick around here this week. Well, me and the babies. The hubby is having a bazillion guys over downstairs to watch the fight. I'm hiding in my room with 1 baby, door locked, watching Bride Wars and reading blogs. So here's to hoping you have a super duper May!!!!!!

  15. April was crazy and May will be too for me- although things will start to wind down a little next week.

    I'm glad everything is going well and I can't WAIT to see the honey-do projects you come up with!

  16. I know the feeling! Every time I get really stressed I always get sick.

    Enjoy May! Sounds like you need it.
