Tired? Dont tell Chad...

June 30...good day...busy day....winding down watching TLC " I didn't know I was pregnant"
I LOVE this show, its like a train wreck and I cant look away! ( Chad is watching it with me too and loving it just as much as I am but ssshhh)
Speaking of Chad, he came home today and we chatted about our days a bit and I mentioned in passing I was tired...to which I received the eye roll. Chad is not one to actually SAY anything negative or annoying in response to any comment I make because that would actually allow me to start a argument ( which we really don't ever actually have, mostly in part to his silence, how can you argue if your other half sits there in silence.. deafening eye rolling silence!) So now I am just reflecting on my day, and of course doing a vs. his day kind of thing, (very silently of course )
So what did I do today? Should I be complaining that I feel tired? Well, lets do a recap, ( just the short version as the commercial break is almost over )

-We had a decent sleep, woke at 7am
-made breakfast, chased children to get dressed, be clean we have a play date today!
-make cookies before 10 am play date
-burn cookies.
-pack up early, need to go to store to get snacks for play date
-take FOUR kids to extra foods...do I need to explain to you all how fun that is?
-Go to big play date!
- Chase kids around new friends home trying to get them to not break, eat, steal, pee on or terrorize other new friends and their toys
-hours later, pack up kids to go home for cranky overtired twins nap time... and get two toddlers who don't want to go into the truck...in the rain. I get drenched.
-put twins to sleep
-fold 3 loads of laundry while convincing Coy laundry is NOT BALLS! Stop throwing my underwear!
-jump on trampoline for too long...ooh my bladder...
-remove all chairs from floor due to climbing twins who despite my best efforts did indeed end up on a chair, THAT WAS ALREADY ON THE TABLE!?! I actually didn't even get a picture of this out of sheer terror that they would fall...usually I take a pic cause I think they will be ok...but this was insane?!
-make dinner
-fold more laundry
- vacuum whole main level
-feed kids dinner
-vacuum again due to sand box fun being brought into the hose
(why did I vaccum earlier?? such a rookie mistake)
-clean up dinner
-take kids to park after dinner
come home and wait for Daddy...yea Daddy!......family bike ride back to bigger cooler park. Home by 8:10, kids in bed by 8:30

I guess to some workaholics it might not sound that busy but tonight at 8:30 was the first time I sat down all day...unless you count, peeing, driving, or laying on the floor getting crawled over.
So yes, I feel tired.
Sorry if I'm being dramatic but phew, these kids wear me out and I'm only 28!!

Being Me

I decided that I might keep a journal ( or a blogal?) about my life for one year, every day tell a little about my day and see what it becomes...perhaps a good laugh for the future, more sane version of myself. You know I kept adiary every day as a kid and a pre teen. I still have them and they are good for a make you cry kind of laugh...such a loser.
Aah yes I can see it now, a mini memoir full of warm tender memories, lovey lovey kissey mushy stuff on my FABULOUS marriage, how I LOVE to be a mommy and what I ever did before these wonderful angels came into my life......
Silly me, wait I said memoir didn't I? Ohhhh, so I guess I must be a tad more truthful? Well ok, as long as truth doesn't lad me in jail or with a social worker, truth is what I will deliver. Good bad ugly, or poopey in may case. ( Yes I STILL cant escape poop! I tell poop stories like drunks tell drinking stories, its all we have indulge me)
Today is June 29 2010. Heres a bit of background...
Mia is 3, soon to be 4 in October. Coy was 2 in February and the twins, god love them cause some days I sure dont, (hey, social workers be gone!) are 15 months. In general I dont think time has eased the pain of having 4 kids in 2 years. I think all time has done for me was allow a fatter backside to grow due to the stress eating, wrinkles from lack of sleep, and deeper more meaningful conversations with Mia.... on Dora the explorer and her Spanish heritage and if she willmarry boots one day?
You know, after all the ramble I think I am too tired to even tell anything about my actual day? Tired due to the fact that at 15 months the twins have slept a total of 5 times thru the night and not in a row...
but perhaps I could give a little glimpse...today on a family bike ride after dinner we went to the park...after much monkeying around on the monkey bars and Chad towing the tired twins home behind his bike, it was time to load the big kids... Coy was locked and loaded on the back of my bike and now for Mia ( who is currently "riding" her own bike...if you want to call taking a rest stop every 5 feet 'riding')
Mia...Mia! Mia....Mia?? MIA?? Uh oh!! The girl is a snail on her bike until I turn around to get Coy in his seat and NOW shes gone??!! Frantic bike ride around park, back to school parking lot...back to park...back to parking lot...then I see her...phew....happily talking to some teenage girls on the swings at other school park across the field from where we were...apparently she was curious about their Ipods, she was wondering if they had " A whole new World?" as sung by Princess Jasmine. Her babysitter let her listen to it and she was just wondering??
Lord...time for the stranger talk, again. I cant keep this girl from talking to people! I have NO idea where she gets that from but its sooo irritating! ;)
Oh well, not major but a story for the journal! Now I must retire, Kate plus 8 is on and I like to watch it, it makes me feel better about my life :)
