MOMS club Pumpkin patch trip

We had such a fun time at the plumper pumpkin patch the other day. It was our first time to visit this particular farm and we will definitly make it a tradition, there were animals and hayrides, a 40 ft slide, even pony rides.

we survived

whew, I sat down today and looked at the calender and am completely floored by the fact that almost a month of school has passed. A few short weeks ago I was paniced about how I was going to handle juggling kids school, work, and still maintain some semblance of a personal life. Now a month later I am out there swimming with the rest....I've signed up to volunteer as an art literacy teacher at the elementary school, be a kindergarden classroom mom, work the book fair and be a scrapbooker and party planner at Amy's preschool. I am still enjoying being the activities coordinator for our moms club and working a lot with Marcelo for our Carpet Cleaning business. We are also hoping to reach out into other business opportunities soon as well (more about that will come later).

I've also found a fun hobby, my new sewing machine has finally gotten some use. In the last few weeks I have made amy a new skirt, finished their little quilts and designed "super Nicolas" and "super amy" capes.

A few days ago a friend of mine was over for lunch and we while we were chatting she told me that she thought I needed to slow down, take it easy and not work so hard. At the time I laughed it off, later her words kept coming back to me. Am I doing to much? Do I feel too stressed out? Its true that I laugh now when I think about how I didn't know what I was going to do with all of my free time in the far there has been no free time!! But the answer is that I don't feel stressed out (maybe its the meds talking!) but i feel invigerated and alive. I love to be busy, I love to be involved. Maybe my laundry is always a day behind and there have been days when we have to eat on the run and there are moments when I am exhausted and just want to take a break....but I feel good and I feel happy. This is a wonderful life and I am enjoying living it to the fullest!
