Where are you summer vacation?

So April is pretty much over by this weekend and my life is spinning out of control. Have you ever felt like everyone needs something from you? I feel I go every day and cannot control anything. Look at what I'm talking about...

1. Soccer practices for Madison everyday from 2:30-4
2. Games for soccer 2-3 times a week from 4:00 to 6.
3. concession duty for soccer at least 1-2 times and tball concession
4. Miller soccer practices are one time a week from 5:30 to 6:30
5. Miller has soccer games every Saturday morning
6. Tball for miller is every Friday night from 6-till dark
7. Tball games are two times a week..sometimes overlapping Madison's games
8. Chiropractor appointment for Madison once a week after her soccer games
9. gymnastics one time a week for Madison
10. Church on wednesday nights and sunday morning and nights.
11. Playdates one times a week sometimes two for Miller

And if we are lucky I get to go to the grocery store, eat lunch with a friend and cook dinner...sometimes we dry off from a shower in beach towels....but that is just how busy my life is....that doesnt include the garden I need to plant, appointments to go to and cleaning my home...which is very neglected. I'm tired people.....I'm looking forward to May 25th the last day of school...the last day to run people places the last day to freedom...the last day till I can fall into the couch and fall asleep and not worry about having to be up to pick a kid up and run.
When school lets out that Tuesday we are taking a vacation from life......for at least 2 days. Did I mention I'm tired?????????????

Where in the world have I been????

I cant believe I havent posted since March! I have been gone. Things have been so crazy around here. We went to New York City for Spring Break..WOW~! Such an amazing city...so different for this Kentucky gal! We arrived on Wednesday afternoon and walked to Times Square and just walked until night time....eating dinner at Carmines...so good in the Theater District. Thursday we were up early and gone...it was hot...record breaking temps people..92! I sweat and I'm sure we all smelled some. We took a tour bus that was called a hop on hop off bus and it was so so so cool. We saw everything we wanted from this bus for 2 days. We went to the Statue of Liberty and toured Ellis Island..such a good thing to do at least once! We saw upper Manhattan and lower...checked out Trump Towers...did the Today Show where we met Meredith! Such a sweet woman...she got her picture with Madison! Saw the Empire State Building..went to Ground Zero which was so emotional....tears to our eyes....brought that whole day back... ate cupcakes at bakeries in Greenwich Village and sweet little cafe's in Soho. New Yorkers are not like me though....they are on a mission...they go go go go go ! We went to Radio Music City hall....and just wondered Broadway and ending our adventure with a musical.

New York city is an amazing place to visit. So many possibilities lie here. But this Ky gal....is happy to be home...happy to be running to soccer practices and tball practices....happy to be home with her family.

I plan on trying to get back into the swing of things my friends....bloggin one of them...right now I'm on the deck with a glass of ice tea trying to get some sun.

By the way Madison made the cheer squad yet again for next year.....Go Madison....

Talk to you soon!
