It  has been for ever. Reason being life don't stop.  I would like to say things will slow down and get better but the chance of that don't look good. Tyler finished soccer a couple weeks back. He was sad but we needed the break. Derek finished summer softball and also took a break off for fall league. Even without all that we are staying busy. One HUGE thing that has happen is Tyler is finally fully POTTY TRAINED! I have never been more happy about something. It was by far the hardest longest road. But its past and now I realize how grown up he is and my heart breaks.  He is a super smart goofy kid that can always make you laugh.  Love my boy. Heres a 3 year old pic.

Letting Go

Tyler is will be 3 in 3 months. And last night I got a reality check I wasn't ready for. The thought and talk about putting him a 3 year old program. (pre preschool) As Derek and I were looking a school choices and the time he would be in school my heart broke. I go so emotional I couldn't stand it. I don't want him to be gone all day. I can't imagine my day with out him. I don't want  to let go! We have been up and down about homeschool and private school and what to do. And well I now am 100% convinced I want to do homeschool. But on the flip side I know I can't make that decision based off of feelings and not wanting my boy to grow up. There are so many pros and cons to both. But I have not been able to find a whole lot of homeschool support or groups in are local town. Maybe I just don't know how or what to search to find them.  Which has me worried I won't be able to get Tyler involved enough with homeschool. Either way I want my 3 month old little baby boy back. I can't stand the thoughts of him not being my baby anymore. But rather a big boy ready for school.  I have only been away from him two nights. And he has only had someone watch him for 6 hours without Derek or I being there once. Then maybe 4 times left with someone for a couple of hours thats it.  He goes and does everything with us.  I need to start letting go but how does one do that?

Bye Bye Funk

Well I have managed to get out of that awful funk. I am back on my cleaning schedule.  I have been walking my mile plus a day. I am down five pounds :-) So happy about the loss. Only 25 or 30 more to go. Next week I am gonna tackle the awful potty training situation.  ( So I hope and pray)  I have been trying to get Tyler fully potty trained but have not had any luck. So come next Monday is it. I am not going to stop until he is completely trained.  He will be 3 years old in 3 months and I have let it go on long enough.  I just pray that my head will corporate with me. I have been getting a migraine every Sunday evening and it lasting well into Wednesday.  It has been hard to work threw it. But I have no choice.  They have also made me super emotional. Which I am trying to work threw that as well.  I am full of emotions right now and have been super moody.  I need a vacation and a break but can't see any of that happening in my future.  Happy Friday every one! Enjoy every moment with your loved ones.

In A Funk

So company has been long gone. But I am still in a weird funk. I am finding it so hard to get back into a routine of things. Cleaning and keeping up with normal house work has been the death of me. And laundry. I can never keep up with it. But other then that life has been good. I am loving being home in this nice weather and being able to go to the lake fishing and play all evening in the yard. Tyler is growing growing growing. Talking more and more. And turning into the best little actor I know. Derek is doing good.  He decided to join a softball league. So are Friday nights is spent at the ball field. He has two games a night and is enjoying having free time to do that.  Life is great.

It has been awhile since I have had a chance to get on here. I have been kept busy with family coming in from CO. My dad has been out once a month to visit for the last few months. Then my mom has come out and visited. Now I have this week to prepare for company that will be here thursday. The guest room is always in use. With getting a week break in-between if lucky. It has been good getting to see them though. And Tyler has got to know them better. We was lucky to get away over this past weekend and go meet some great friends and hang out on a mini vacation. Summer isn't even here and we don't seem to have enough hours in a day. But life is great.  So if I'm not posting much its because I have company or am out enjoying life with my wonderful guys. (my hubby and son)

Safe To Say

Spring is here?! We have been in the 60's-70's the past few weeks. Windows have been open nearly ever day. I love it. Spring and Fall are my favorite seasons. I have enjoyed being outside playing with Tyler. Being able to take Mishka on her walk without freezing to death. Even though I think she would rather have it cold. I have even been able to sit outside while Tyler plays in his corn box and read a book. Only thing I am not loving is allergies already. Whatever is blooming I wish it would just die already! Tyler and I have been sneezing are heads off all week:-/ I am afraid its going to be a really bad year for allergies.  Other then that I am ready to start planing camping trips, go fishing, swim, be out on the boat, yard sales and the list goes on.
