sick and tired

well...we've lost the fight against the cold and flu that has been going around.
I've had three sick boys since last Thursday...I'm sure Zack is next! Not to mention the incredible sore throat I have. I'm no doctor but I have had strep enough in my life to think that I have it again. Figures! We have been ridiculously busy the entire month of October plus I am at school every day now with all those kids and their germs. Not to mention all the places we've been traveling for various sporting events! Wouldn't you know it...this time of the year the doctors office is booking into next week instead of the usual day or two max. Off to the drugstore I go to find something to make myself a little more comfortable.
I have had no time to be creative...had great intentions of doing all sorts of things this month and haven't done any. I seriously have had no free time. Good thing the PVR has a huge memory cause there are a wack of shows waiting to be watched...someday!
The hockey season has been crazy, volleyball is outta control and Brian has been working like mad trying to get things wrapped up before winter. I have developed such an understanding of what my Mom went through with us. I have no idea how she did it...three kids, 2 hockey players, a figure skater, a full time job, housework, school functions...ya know how the list goes on and on. I can't even imagine what my life will be like in another couple of years when Carsyn and Gavin are in things. Zack is going to have to help with the driving...if he has time then with graduating and all. I know that is still a few years away but it feels like it's going so fast.
I know you all have busy lives do you balance it all? I feel like it's more hectic than busy...make sense? Like we are all just running from one thing to the next. However, we are still managing to have family dinners most of the week...even if they aren't as elaborate as they used to!
In all the running, I have been able to pick up some Christmas gifts...which is nice to feel like I have a bit of a grip on that.
We do have to get through Halloween though...pumpkins are almost done...had to do them is shifts as we all do one so it takes time. Will share pics next post...of the boys in costume too.
Gavin is being The Dark Knight Batman, Carsyn is being the Pilsbary Doughboy, Reilly wants to be a ghost and Zack is not dressing up. In fact, he isn't even planning on being home...made plans to go to a friends instead. Brian comes home tomorrow just in time for his favorite holiday!
I better's to do list is pretty long but it does include a nap so that's good ;)
Take care everyone, hope you are all well and I am going to do my nest to make blog rounds to those of you I have been neglecting...I am soooo very sorry. I still love ya though!

is not something I normally deal well with but when it comes to my blog...change is good!
I'll be playing around with my photshop to see if I can figure out how to make a new banner and I would like to figure out how to do sketches too. If anyone wants to leave me some tips or tricks...that would be super! If not, I'll just play around...sometimes that's the most fun way to learn.
I'll be back soon to update what we've been up to and happenings around here.

I Swear - All 4 1

i swear by the the moon
and the stars in the sky
and i swear like the
shadow that's by your side
i see the questions in your eyes
i know what's waiting on your mind
you can be sure i know my part
'cause i stand beside you through the years
you'll only cry those happy tears
and though i make mistakes
i'll never break your heart
and i swear by the moon
and the stars in the sky i'll be there
i swear like the shadow that's by your side
i'll be there for better or worse
till death do us part
i'll love you with every beat of my heart
and i swear

i'll give you every thing i can
i'll build your dreams with these two hands
we'll hang some memories on the wall
and when (and when) just the two of us are there
you won't have to ask if i still care
'cause as the time changes the page
my love won't ever age at all

and i swear (i swear) by the moon
and the stars in the sky i'll be there (i'll be there)
i swear (and i swear) like the shadow that's by your side
i'll be there (i'll be there) for better or worse
till death do us part i'll love you
with every single beat of my heart and i swear

heeeelllllllooooo there

I am soooo sorry it's been awhile since an update.
Our days have become a whole lot busier with the kids and their activities.
Add extra trips to the city after a couple of hours at work and the days just fly by.

September is! The kids thought it went by fast too and hope the next 9 months continue to go that!
Everyone seem to have adjusted well to being back at school...including me! I love my job!!
Gavin loves having homework...the other boys do! It sure makes it interesting when they all do though.
Team tryouts are almost over for Reilly...tomorrow is the last day. They have had conditioning camp and then drills. Today was an inner squad game and there is an exhibition game tomorrow that certain players were asked to play in...Reilly was one of them so we'll see how that goes.

Zack was asked by the coach to play Sr. high volleyball...and the coach is pretty intense about it too! They practice twice a week for 2 hours, games on Wednesday's and he has them in a tournament almost every is crazy!

We went to the cornmaze last weekend with our was soooo much fun! Afterwards, we all went out for dinner. Zack ditched us to go to a friends it begins!

Wow...what's been so long, I can't remember what I blogged about!

I've done some scrapbooking...Brian has a new contract for work...I have started Christmas shopping...I just found out today I am going to be an Auntie again (in June) oh and that apparently my Mom and my brother have planned to have Thanksgiving dinner at our house next weekend...yep...looks like I am going to have a houseful! The good news is, I am getting a dishwasher and hopefully it will be installed before I have to cook and feed them all!!

I want to apologize to all of my fellow bloggers for not visiting lately. It's been a hectic week and a half...I hardly have time to sit and check emails or chat in my favorite forum as often as I was used too but things should slow down a bit this week... I hope! I'll make blog rounds in the next day or so...I feel so out of touch with everyone.
I hope you are all well.

Take care everyone
