Stream of Consciousness

The last few weeks have been so crazy. We have been so busy and at night, I am trying to decide whether to go to sleep or get caught up on things. So tonight, I want to get caught up on my blog. One of which I have been neglecting by choice since my kids, hubby, family, work and school come first. Don't get me wrong, for the past 9 months I have loved blogging....but now it seems to be on the back burner. So here goes. Since the blog hasn't been updated since the first day of vacation, I need to get caught up on everything that has been happening. I cannot it's been so long since I have updated it! Where has the time gone??
First, vacation was great. I need a couple more weeks of vacation now. I do get a day this Friday which I am pumped about! (I will explain later). The kids were better than expected on the car ride to and from North Myrtle Beach. We have a dual DVD player in the car (which I highly recommend for those with kiddos who are traveling). We watched Shrek, Cars, Ice Age, Happy Feet, and I think Cars a couple more times. Can you guess what Blake is into now? Yep, he LOVES Cars. Try to come up with a Halloween costume for that! The kids liked the beach. They didn't love it at first but I think they started to by the end of the week. Kylie liked eating sand and Blake would run to the water then run away from it when it got close. I think he was pretty intimidated by it. Hopefully next time he will love it.
While on vacation, Kylie took off with her walking. She is pretty much walking most of the time now. She hasn't quite figured out how to get up without pulling up on something yet, but I think that is coming soon. She chases Blake (and Jackson)everywhere! Speaking of, Jackson LOVED the beach. The pictures did it no justice....he was so excited to be at the beach and would cry to go down to the water everyday.
While there, we went to Ripley's Aquarium. We had a good time and I think Blake like all the fish. He even gave the sting rays his Car! HaHa! Yes he through his car into the sting rays and the worker had to fish it out. Kind of embarrassing but whatever. It happens!

When we got back from vacation it was back to reality. While on vacation I didn't have work to think about, but I had tons of work for school that I was doing every night. Not one bit fun! It is a hybrid class so we had the beginning of class in the classroom and the second half is virtual. Really it is postings each week on WSJ articles and a major Legal and Ethical Research Paper. You really have to be on top of things to keep up with the class. There is always something due without someone reminding you about it. I look at the syllabus at least 3 times a day.
This past weekend we went to Lexington for Aaron's 10 year high school reunion. It was fun! Most of the beginning of the reunion we were all around the TV watching Kentucky BEAT #10 South Carolina!! It was an awesome game! We also got to go out before with Aaron's brother and his wife for dinner which was nice.

This weekend is going to be fabulous. My sister, my mom and myself go on a shopping trip every year with my mom's best friend and her 2 daughters to do some Christmas shopping. I have Friday off of work and we are heading up to Dayton, Ohio. We get to go to the AWESOME outlets in Jeffersonville, Ohio! If you have never been there and you live close, it is a must! We also get to see my little brother (not really little - he is taller than me and 27 years old). He goes to law school at the University of Dayton where he is in his second year. I am so proud of him! I miss him so much!!! The kiddos will be at home with Aaron and my mother-in-law so they will be in good hands. I will miss them!!

Also lately we have been dealing with some sickness with the kids. Kylie had strep through and an ear infection the week before we went on vacation then Blake got it the week after we got back. Kylie is still not 100% back to normal and Blake is almost there. Hopefully this is all of the illness we will have to deal with this season. I doubt it but I must be positive!

Sshheeeeew! That was a lot of updating! Now I haveto get off of here so I can get on a conference call for my group for school....we get to write an ethical dilemma together! I know...sounds like fun, uh? :)

I hope everyone has a great week! I hope to get back into updating this more often!
