35 Y/O wife to Tim and mom to Emma,Noah,Caleb, Stella and 2 babies in Heaven.Trying to walk in the path of the Lord and carrying my family with me. I love our 1902 home we purchased more 10 years ago. It is constantly evolving and goes through whatever changes my little heart desires. I love vintage treasures and I'm always on the hunt for them! My hope is that this blog will be a constant scrapbook for my family and home,a place to make new friends and just somewhere to lay out my thoughts,even if they aren't beautiful or inspiring.

Yearning for a routine.

I know I'm the minority but I truly dislike the lazy days of summer. I know this summer was worse than others but I'm really just not a summer kind of girl. I don't have a back yard so my kids really can't go out and play. I don't drive so I can't take them anywhere and after 3 kids there is NO WAY you will catch me a suit so that rules out swimming.

Mostly though I don't like not doing anything! I can't wait for school to start. Picking the kids up gives me an excuse to get out the house and socialize with other parents. Unfortunately that novelty will wear off by the 3rd week of September. The routine is what I'm really looking forward to.Doing homework,making dinner.Showers,tv time and snack and straight to bed! The best part of that is I will be there for all of it because this week is my last week at Target!

I will miss Target. I met some great people there. Real people who know that to get by in this life sometimes a second part time job is necessary. But I want to make sure I'm there for my kids on school nights and beside the pay wasn't so great anyways.

Not much else is going on. My loss still makes my heart ache but the ache certainly isn't as bad as it was before.In a weird way I'm so happy it happened this year and not before.I would have never been prepared for this spiritually. But my faith has grown so much in the past year so I know that helped alot.
