Southern Sayin' Of The Month

I do not handle transitions well. While I can multi-task like nobody's business, my mind and body do not deal well with transitions. Transitioning back to work. Transitioning into our new home. Transitioning from the lazy days of summer into the swing of Bible Study, soccer practice, Charity League meetings, and Children's Choir Club.

I love my new job with a passion that I thought I'd lost for teaching. I love our new home and the promise it holds to be the place where we raise our children and make our family's memories. I love each activity that we participate in throughout the week, but the bottom line is that I do not transition well. While the mental drain it causes is difficult enough, my body respond well either.

I need more sleep now than I ever remember needing (aside from during my pregnancies, and I'm definitely not preggers) and I feel just a touch sick all the time. It may take me some time before I can begin writing again regularly...right now I feel like my blog has been lost in transition. I will be back soon! And with pictures of our wonderful forever home!

Signs That She's A Girly-Girl

My precious little Bug is growing up so fast! 16 months already, and acting like she's 16 at times. I've recently noticed a number of things that have caused me to realize that I have a certified girly-girl, miss priss, drama queen on my hands.

Bug loves to carry a purse (my lunchbag) around with keys and a hairbrush inside. Bless if that pretty red hair were to get messed up!

She puts her hands on her hips. Yes, at 16 months.

She rides her ladybug Radio Flyer while using a glue stick as lip gloss. (First driving lesson will be: no applying makeup while driving).

She has her Daddy and her brother wrapped around her little finger.

She loves to carry my heels around the house.

She knows exactly how to look at you and say "cookie" so that you'll give her one every time.

This girl's gonna be trouble, but she sure is fun!

Belle Is Back With A Brand New Edition

So, I've obviously been neglecting my blog. It's not that I've forgotten it, I've thought about posting many times in the past couple weeks yet something (WORK and EXHAUSTION) has held me back. But guess what ladies, I'm back.

And in yet another homage to my love of lists I'll just share a few randoms:

1. I desperately need a haircut. I've been "growing it out" but I'm permantly in that awkard stage and it's just stringy and unkept. I gotta get my style back ASAP!

2. Tonight is a sweet water night. I'll be having several servings of sweet water to reward myself for my hard work this week.

3. I am totally in love with my new job as a reading specialist. The children are wonderful, my coworkers are exceptional, and I couldn't ask for a better boss!

4. I saw a lady in a hospital gown riding on a golf cart on a main road. I asked the RedHead if we should call someone.

5. We are planning on having final inspection next Tuesday so we should have our CO (certificate of occupancy) next week sometime! Then the moving will begin!

Just a few snippets, but if the sweet water keeps flowing more blogging may be to come!

Happy Friday Friends!
