To my fellow Noggin comrades: Could someone please hit the "pause" button on your imaginary remote?

Oh, despite my intense dislike for the "Upside Down Show" which I just made reference to, I really wish that I did, in fact, have a secret remote control that I could pause and stop and fast forward my life at my own choosing. If I had my way, I would still have about 6 hours left in my evening, Elaina would already be asleep, and I would never get tired. Like a machine. I just get weak thinking of all of the projects I could finish. And, if I had my own remote control, if I did get tired, I would have an automatic 10 hours built into my day for sleep. Who's with me on this one folks?

As it stands, I don't have a single legitimate complaint about our lives at the moment. (With the exclusion of my sore throat and swollen glands.) We had a great week, a wonderful, fun filled weekend and at almost 11:00, our house is pretty clean. The only thing I've left by the wayside is a lot of blog updates for the bulk of last week. For this reason and for the sake of record keeping, I will recap some highlights of our previous week.

Monday: family night, no plans, dinner together
Tuesday: final tumbling class until May 22nd
Wednesday: had a babysitter come over to watch Elaina while we went to Eric's bowling banquet and ate too much food and greedily ran away with some prize money
Thursday: Eric went to Haz-Mat training class (which he has blown off most of the year already) mommy and Elaina had a girls' night together
Friday: dinner with some friends, Mommy went to a jewelry party in the evening
Saturday: Mommy enjoyed an afternoon out shopping for great little boy items and sustenance to fill our cupboards; had yet another babysitter over to watch Elaina while we ate dinner out and went bowling with a fun group of friends, came home, picked up Elaina and went to a bonfire with the same group.
Sunday-took Elaina to the park, pulled down newborn baby accessories from the attic to prepare for our latest, greatest arrival next week!

And here I sit, dizzy from a whirlwind of all-things-busy. Yet, please don't mistake this for complaining... I wouldn't have it any other way. Oh, except for pausing my night to accommodate 10 hours of sleep!
(And I could also do without the sore throat, thankyouverymuch.)

Always remember while your babies are small that the days are long but the years are short. After awhile you'll learn to treasure the long days because you have that much more time to enjoy your darlings. Grandma H.

I got some goodies for my little niece and nephew!! Look for a care package coming your way. If it's hard for us to stop thinking about it, I can only imagine what you're going through!
