I lied...

Okay, so I decided to post a picture of myself after all. Just don't judge me too harshly--I had a baby a week and a half before this picture was taken. I thought it was a cute picture of me and my three kids. I still can't believe I have three kids!

My mom left on Sunday so I have been on my own this week. It was so nice to have her here with me for almost two weeks. She did all my laundry and dishes, took Sareny and Isaac to swimming lessons, got up early with Isaac, cooked lunch and dinner, picked up toys, washed my sheets, etc. etc. I got to have a nap every day while she was here! So now it's back to real life, and I have to say, it hasn't been too bad. My house is falling apart around us and the laundry is already piling up, but we're all doing pretty good other than that. I have had to take all three kids out every day this week, once to swimming lessons and twice to meet people for lunch, and while it is definitely takes more time and preparation, I am proud to report that we did pretty good and were on time to all events! We're slowly figuring this out.

Yesterday I asked Sareny if she was sad that Grammy Jo was gone. She said, "No." Then she went on to say, "I do love her, but I can't be sad when she's not here." She is so grown up and has the perfect attitude! I could learn a few things from her, I think.

Tomorrow we are going out of town, to Southern Nevada where, unfortunately, the weather is pretty darn similar to here. We're having a going away party for my little sister and her husband, who are moving to Hawaii next month. I'm sad they're moving so far away, but we are all looking forward to a fun weekend.
