I am a bad, bad, blogger.

I never seem to have any time to blog! My readers - all two of them - must be so disappointed in me!

It's been another busy week. I missed church on Sunday. I was trying to get up my nerve to take Jordan and brave those with cooties who would want to hold her. I don't know how to deal with people who ask if they can hold her. I have a hard time saying no to begin with, so this is really a challenge for me. I worry about germs and about her being handled too much. The best I have come up with to say if anyone asks if they can hold her is "perhaps after the service. I don't know how she will do during it and I don't want her to fuss with someone else". I know... it sounds weak even as I type it. Then after the service hopefully she will be sleeping and I can suggest next time as she is sleeping now... I don't know. I feel bad because these people have been so excited for us and praying for us and then I won't let them hold my baby? Maybe I am nuts to worry about this. Maybe they'll think she's a little creep and that will be that.

Monday I took the kids for their dental appointments. Julie was very nervous and it took a long while for the hygenist to clean her teeth properly. I understand that, I've always been afraid of dentists. After school I took them for haircuts and I am happy to report that Sam's hair is now a proper, clean length.

Tuesday I missed my housegroup meeting because I was beyond tired. I miss the girls but I just don't have the energy come 7pm. I am going to have to drop out of that group because there is just too much going on.

Wednesday morning my mom and I went down to the school to hear Julie read over the announcements. She did a great job! I am so proud of her.

Today I bought $70 worth of cleaning products then never cleaned. Sigh. I took the kids out for ice cream after school.

Tomorrow is family night. Saturday night my mom is coming to watch the children so Ian and I can go out for dinner together and see a movie afterwards. I'm really looking forward to a date with Ian.

I think I'm going to start painting the upstairs hallway on Sunday. We have SO much work to do to get this house ready to list. Decluttering, cleaning, painting, repairs. We need to hire someone to paint the exterior of the house and to clean up the yard and shape our gardens. Crazy. I want that For Sale sign on my lawn on May 15th. Talk about a challenge.
