Before I delight you in the upcoming chaos, I found my old posts. They were there the whole time and in my computer ineptness (don’t know if that is a word but it fits here) couldn’t find them. As I get used to this new site, two things are true. One, switching to Word Press gives me the security of knowing that I own all my own content and it feels good (and a little scary) to learn new things. Two, when making the switch it is so important to do it with someone that knows what they are doing so I highly recommend Other Half Media that you can find at Ashley’s site: www.myfrontporchswing.com or Shell’s site: www.thingsicantsay.com. I was a nutcase leading up to the switch, in the middle of the switch and after and they were patient and so very helpful.
I will be spending the next two days getting ready for an away baseball tournament. I don’t need to tell you guys how hard it is to get ready to go away with four kids. You probably have read older posts on it. I will say that I think it is ridiculous that a baseball tournament is starting at 2 on a Friday afternoon. Doesn’t anyone that runs these things work?? I had a few appointments scheduled that I now have to cancel. That makes me crazy because I try to be on top of things and organized and life keeps throwing me curve balls.
I try not to have any expectations about vacations but:
I am really looking forward to NO CAMPS!!
I am looking forward to me giving Leo a break to golf or fish and then him giving me a break to sit by the pool and read.
I am looking forward to seeing the excitement in my kids eyes as they experience the water park.
I am looking forward to walking around in the downtown area and buying fudge and popcorn.
I am looking forward to my kids asking for something and the answer being, “Yes!” because we are on vacation.
I am looking forward to seeing my sisters and my parents and not having to hang up because one of our kids needs us.
I am looking forward to spending time with Leo outside of a gym or baseball field (after the tournament).
I am looking forward to having so much material to blog about when I get back…the good…the bad…and the ugly.
Saying I am looking forward to the upcoming chaos is pretty glass half full, isn’t it? Maybe I shouldn’t expect too much.
Anyone else out there going on vacation and looking forward to something specific?
