Busy Times

So many big things are happening now and in the near future. I need to start blogging again! I need to be able to look back on these days. I really hope I can stick with this blogging thing again. 

Jakob's mission prep and now potential BYU application is the biggest thing on our minds. Always in the back of my mind. Even though there is SO MUCH happening on a day to day basis.

We have all 4 boys going to 4 different schools. Luckily, Jakob can drive himself. Luckily we were able to get a third car. But that's a stress financially. Which means Jakob needs to get a job. Which is a big stress. I hope we can help him follow through with that. None of us want him to work. It's very helpful to have him home. But financially he needs to work.

Most of my day is carpooling. And during the down time I'm caring for the dogs or catching my breath for a moment. Which means the housework is piling up. Always nagging and incredibly frustrating. I wish I had the guts and was humble enough to call in the church troops for help. But I'd like to think that I'm not the only one with this struggle. And that it wouldn't be fair for me to ask for help if they're in the same boat. ... but wowza could we use Audrey our past nanny right now!!!  Sad thing is, we couldn't pay help anyway. Really, I should be working. But that's not realistic. I've offered to do pet sitting. But I think we both know that that would br more stress then it's worth. Leif's just trying to work extra hours. Bless him!

I'm listening to the dogs play fight outside my door. They're a good distraction. But a stress too. Lot's of vet appointments. Thank Heavens for CareCredit that helps us spread the payments out.

Well, my few minutes to myself and rare moment to bath is up. It was nice while it lasted.
