Confessions of a tired mom

Here are my confessions (not to be confused with a random list because that occurs on Fridays) . . .

*Last night I fell asleep at 7 . . . missed bedtimes, conversation with Josh, and Law and Order SVU . . . I think I could do it again tonight. I think our life is catching up with me.

*I am mostly recovered from our break in, but I have issues leaving our house between 9-3 since the police said that is when grab and go burglaries are most likely to occur. And I still breathe a sigh of relief when I come home to find the front door shut.

*I found a tick on Bo today and am so disgusted. I loathe bugs, especially small ones stuck in my child's body. I smothered it with alcohol and then yanked and yanked with the tweezers but could not get it out. We ended up driving to Josh's office so he could pull it out (and to soothe my pride, I should tell you it took him a couple of minutes). I guess daily full body checks are in order since the kids love to play in our woods.

*I guess this is more of an announcement than a confession . . . check out Bethany Christian Services' spring fundrasier "High Heels and Pig Tails." This is an easy and fun way to care for the fatherless (and those who want to be fathers and mothers). Bethany is a non-profit adoption agency that has been a huge part of my life for a long, long time. We fostered through it when I was younger and then my mom started working for them. I have a handful of friends whose families are grown completely or partially through Bethany. It is one of those organizations and causes that I am very passionate about! This event is a fun fashion show and brunch featuring "Bethany families" Saturday, April 30th from 11am-2pm at Next Level Events. For more information, call their office 664-5729.

*I started a book a couple of days ago that has me dying for chances to read it. It's a silly, mindless book but I am into the characters and want to know how it ends. I have been very thankful for this beautiful weather because I can sit in my chair outside while the kids play and ride bikes and read with less guilt than I have when I let them watch tv so I can read. Just being real.
