What's new pussycat?

Whoa, whoa, whoa - as done by Steve Martin in a tuxedo. I love that movie. I love it so much my heart feels full just thinking about it.

What a big day! Voting day! The line was only about 20 minutes long and I enjoyed a nice little break from my kids :) I was excited to actually be registered and able to vote this year!!! I am so glad my mom was able to watch the kids so I could go alone! Thanks mom!

Lots of things going on recently which is why I did not blog in October at all!! Neal's birthday, Emerson's 1st birthday, 2 super fun weddings, Halloween, Kim's baby shower...you know the drill. :)

I am thankful for the new month and every day that gets closer to Christmas because it means one day closer to going to visit my sister in Florida!  I wish we were neighbors.  It also means that baby Jack's arrival is nearing! I cannot wait to meet that little boy!!

My brain feels like mush lately! My kids have not been sleeping - who knows why - the time change has really screwed us up.  Teaching is exhausting as well.  Not the act of teaching but everything that comes along with it!  My mind is constantly thinking about what I should do next year... work full time, not work at all, do something totally different??? I just don't know.  I want to do what is best for my family.  I am really fortunate that I have been able to do this job share for the 2nd year now.  Last night on the couch I couldn't help but think about all of the different things I wanted to be when I grew up including the following:

Opthalmologist, back up dancer for Kid Rock, supermodel, country singer, TV News anchor/Weather Woman, anything with fashion.....my mind changed as the did the seasons (obviously).  Somehow teaching incorporates all of those things now that I think about it :) I dance, sing, do weather reports in the morning, check eyes....hahaha.

I guess I am just at a crossroads again and I want to stay home with my babies and get every single second of quality family loving time that I can with them before they start school and I only see them on weekends and holidays. Boo.

Lots to think about :) In the meantime, I'll go check the kitchen for any more tomato seeds since Beckett thought it would be a great idea to throw them from the counter to the floor and smash them while doing an evil little laugh. Who does that?

Voting sticker and Firetruck...all the important things :)
