It's been awhile

Wow! To say I've been busy is an understatement. First my mom was in town for a nice visit. Alex had a blast with her and I got a little down time (or at least an extra hand to help fend off a raging toddler). We had beautiful weather and did a lot of shopping and eating out. By the end of mom's visit, alex was pleading with us to "not go out to eat at a restaurant".

The weather here has been beautiful but all of our allergies are working up a bit. None of us technically have allergies but the first few weeks of spring always brings up a few sniffles, sneezes and watery eyes. The warm weather is worth it! We're outside from the time we get home from work until sundown...it really helps keep the house clean when we're not in it!

Other than that, work has been keeping me so busy! I've taken the position of manager, extremely reluctantly, and am quickly realizing why I don't want that position! It's just to much work and responsibility--seriously now is not the time in my life I want to advance in my career. I totally work for a paycheck (luckily in a field I love) and make a comfortable amount when I'm not managing. Actually, it's such a small increase in pay for the promotion that it's hardly worth it! So why do it??? It's kind of complicated but our therapy department has no boss and things were falling apart. I'm no miracle worker but am quickly finding out that if one person takes charge (and I happen to be the only person with the experience) things run so much more smoothly. However it means goodbye to my flexible schedule and flying under the radar. People actually need me and I have enough of that at home. Hopefully it's just a short term thing!

On another note we've done a few 'fun' things lately to spice up toddlerhood. Alex now loves 'sink baths'. First it was the bathroom sink and tonight it was the kitchen sink...she thinks it's the coolest thing! At this point, whatever makes her happy!

Well enough for now, off for some much needed shut eye...another friday night bites the dust!!!
