It's never ending!

It seems like I've had one heck of a time lately with the 2 younger girls. They are screamy, demanding, fighting, adorable kids. They stress me out! Luckily my good friend Laura called this morning (or last night, I don't remember) to tell me that she didn't need me to watch her daughter this morning, but that when she was done swimming I could drop the girls off at her place and go swim or run. So that's what I did! I went out and ran 5.5 miles, by myself, with no rain! It was amazing. I tell you, that gives you a sense of accomplishment! Tomorrow is swim day, so we'll see how that one goes!

As for my "O Remember" moment today. Hmmm, it was pretty frustrating. But I suppose in a crazy way it was when I was trying to set up Enchanted for the girls to watch. I couldn't get the X-Box 360 to work. Well, it was working, I just couldn't get the controllers to work. It was crazy because I KNOW how to work them. They just weren't doing anything. After a VERY frustrating 10 minutes I IMed Mike. He walked me through it. And all the sudden it started working. So, even though it wasn't really a happy moment. I think it was Heavenly Father's way of telling me that I need to stop and relax. Not to stress out. Somethings are just going to take time and I can't rush them. Well, at least that's my story and I'm sticking to it!

The other fun thing was Adrie making cookies. I made a package of sugar cookies that have been sitting in the pantry since Christmas and I let her stir it up (then eat the dough). I also let her put the cookies on the pan. She loved that! She sat by the oven and watched them bake and came running over to me when the timer went off. She was VERY proud to give them to the kids and daddy when they came home. It was sweet and I needed that today!
