Finally a Warm-Up

What a great day it was today! I was up early since Troy had to head to Mankato for work and once the kids got up, we headed out for the day. Maybe this is just what I need, some nice weather to get me motivated to get out of bed early in the morning to make the most of the day.

Today we hit some garage sales, Kaiden wanted to buy clothes and shoes. Hmmm I wonder where he gets that from? He's such a cutie pie, asking people at the garage sale what they think of the clothes he found. Most things were too big, so I spent most of my time telling him all the reasons we probably didn't need to take all the clothes home that he found :) We did end up with a couple randoms, but hey at 25 and 50 cents, who can say no to that precious little boy?

Kallie did great today too. She's getting over her cold, so that's good. I think the nice weather actually helps her. After our big bargain shopping, we played some golf outside, went for a walk, played a little more golf, then it was time for lunch and time to get ready for work. It sure felt good to enjoy some time with the kids today. I need to do more of this!

Keeping track of time...

I'm not much of a blogger, but I thought I'd at least give it one more try. At my last job at KEYC, I had a blog called "Jessica's Jottings." Not sure if anyone really looked at it, but it sure didn't get updated very much, so I'll make a better effort at this... at least I hope!

I write this as I'm having a hard time keeping track of time. I look at my life, my kids, my family and wonder where has all the time gone? My grandmother is getting older, my grandpa turns 80 this year and I am constantly asking myself if I've savored all my time and moments with them. I don't know what it is, but lately I find myself dwelling on things, wondering why this, what about that, what if this, what if that.... Not sure why, but I guess its something people go through at times. I'm learning quickly how fast life passes by and that I need to take more time to enjoy it.

Troy and I were recently in Mexico and while we were there, we had a blast and I kept wanting to savor the moment and not let the time slip by too quickly. I think it went well... by the time our 4-5 days was up, I was ready to get back home and snuggle our kids.

Speaking of those kids! Kaiden will be 4 in August, Kallie will be 8 months next month! Wowsers! Kaiden has become such a little man, talking so big and Kallie growing up so fast too! She's rolling all over the place and really getting a little personality of her own. It's so much fun being a mom and wife, I just never want these days to go away, at least most of the time! I have the greatest husband in the world and probably could do a better job of showing him how much he's appreciated. I'm so lucky to have the life I have and I wouldn't trade it for anything, I just wish the time wouldn't slip by me so quickly....
