Yep. Balance. That's what it's all about!

Speaking of which - going to spend some time with dh. Haven't seen him all day!

Well, I am trying to get my weight back under control. It is moving back down again - I've cut back on the snacking...

I also left several Sparkpeople teams. I have my favorites, like this one, and was spread too thin. I needed to reduce my "computer" time some.

I am trying to get some balance in my life - nutrition, exercise, family, best-friend, etc....

Well, I need to call my friend and see if she wants to go for a walk & talk.

I will be interested in hearing how the kids react to a new baby.

Love, Sam

I must say this summer I really look forward to as well with little Sarah coming. I am so anxious to see how the kids will take to her and how protective they will become. I think this will be so much more fun watching them now than if I had her earlier in life. Their dad will have to fight them for attention with this one instead of just doing what he wants. I haven't even bought a stroller because I don't think I will even need one.
I hope you have lots of fun with your son and have a good summer Sam.

I won't say that I will exactly enjoy them. I think the last 2 weeks are as hard as the first 2 weeks. My school goes PreK to 4th, so my grade - 4th - are the oldest kids in the school. They have "Top Dog" syndrome really bad by this time of the year.

Looking forward to my son being home. I always enjoyed summers "off" with him.

That's a shame about the asthma. Apparently, 33% of women with asthma have symptoms that are better when they are pregnant, 33% have symptoms that stay the same, and the last 33% get worse! Too bad you weren't one of the other categories!

I have problems with IBS as well which causes alot of the bloating for me and yes drink quite a bit of water due to the asthma and being dried out. This year has been harder on my asthma than in the past and figure it's because I am pregnant but still it's just hard to breathe. I hope once I get my ultrasound next week to see where she is at weight wise that maybe I can move the due date up some. Just so ready for her to be here.

Sam - glad you got a nice Mother's Day present of your son!

Cherly - glad all is well with baby. Are you bloated because you are retaining water? Make sure you drink enough to flush your system and hang in there. Baby will be here before you know it! Sorry to hear your son is struggling with his school work. That's hard. I know what that's like.

Hey everyone. I've been really busy and just beat at night. We did get to dance twice last week. (In fact I am yawning now.)

The end of the school year is nearing, so the kids are getting restless. I need to start packing up, but I need to do it in a way that the kids won't shut down.

My son will be home by the end of next week - great Mother's Day present.

Still battling with my son and school issues. He is on his meds but just having a hard time getting him to focus on the rest of the year as well Sam. I go back to OB tomorrow for the stress test on the baby then go back to Memphis with Christopher next Tuesday and sure I will have another OB appt as well. Busy busy busy for me.

The kids are down to 20 days left and they are excited about getting out. This year has been tough on Christopher but the new meds are helping him out quite a bit. Picnics are coming and other field trips so they will really enjoy this month I think. I know I will enjoy because I am no longer babysitting now so it's my time just to relax while their at school. Have a good one Sam.

Wow Sam you travel everywhere these days. That must be fun to do and I don't travel much at all. I think I just enjoy staying at home each night. Strange me I think. I hope you have a safe trip back home and a good start to your school week. Congrats to you Nephew and hope his marriage is filled with many blessings.

We had to go extra days due to the ice storm we had here in Arkansas back the end of January or the kids would also be out around that time.

School is coming to an end so fast here in GA. Our last day is 5/22. We have final exams, the end of some of the school programs and the start of summer league swim team practice. Cross Country summer run starts next month too. It just never slows down. - good and bad. I feel like I need a vacation and July is too far away!

I can't believe that my school year is almost over. I have already started thinking about what to put away until next year. Plus there are still so many things to teach them....

Don't forget Cinco de Mayo is coming.
