Still Here...

I wonder how many blog posts I've written on this blog that are titled, "Still Here." I bet there are at least 20, maybe more. But sometimes there's just nothing better to say. I'm still here. There were times that that really meant, "I'm barely hanging on, I can't catch my breath, I feel like I'm drowning, and I just might jump in a hole after I finish this post" (what, you couldn't read between the lines?!) but I was, for that moment, still here.

There were other times that it meant, "I am out having fun, enjoying my family, soaking up every second of fun and laughs and giggles and making memories" but I'm still here. And then other times it meant, "I'm BUSY. We are getting back into routine of school and homework (have I mentioned how much I despise homework? Seriously. That may just be another post for another day) and trying to figure out how these kids are going to eat even a remotely healthy dinner when we are at sports and activities every night, and I'm getting projects done for school and I'm TIRED." And that's kind of where I am today. But I'm happy to see how this year is shaping up for the kids and I'm excited to be getting involved in new things, and sleep will come eventually. Right?! But I'm still here. I promise. And I hope you all are too.

Tonight I am having a Thirty-One party with my wonderful friend Jen who flew here all the way from New Jersey to host. (She really just wanted to hang out with ME, but we're using the party as an excuse) ;) If you're in Colorado Springs and want to come support a great group of dancers, let me know, I'll get you the details. I think the party will be online afterwards so if you want to shop and are NOT in Colorado Springs, that can be arranged too! ;)

Tomorrow is our Buddy Walk. We have over 20 people on Kennedy's team this year! :) That makes me so happy! It will be a great walk and you know I will have lots of pictures to share. In the meantime, here's one of a little Diva who was having fun with me taking pictures the other day. She cracks me up.

Hang in there! You have every right to be tired with all that you do. Hopefully things will settle down for you once you all settle into the school routine. And my kids are 16 and 13 and I still despise homework. The only upside is that I couldn't help my oldest with his homework if I wanted to. Now most of my frustration is making sure the 13 year old actually does his.
