Can I get an OMG?

Ummm.....what happened to Blogger? 

Maybe I should ask, what happened to me?

Not sure if I like this new format, but here's giving it a go.  Today is the last day of school and needless to say, it's been hectic at our house.  Actually, it's been hectic for months (last time I posted was in March) at a time when I thought life was getting manageable, but turns out it didn't.  Most of the house projects got put on hold, the kids got super busy with sports, and my husband coached track again after a few years hiatus.

I was truly feeling like a single parent.  Trust me, I give a lot of credit to all of you out there that are raising kids alone.  It sucks at times!  Jeff even admitted that he's bit off a lot more than he could chew and left me to carry most of the burden of the house and kids.  We're still super busy, but now he's home for the summer so he will definitely be able to help out more. 

This was my April calendar.  I had to color code Paige's softball and volley ball games in order to keep them straight.  Very few nights went by without some activity.  Plus Tues and Thurs my husband was away at his track meets.  Oh and throw Easter in there too...I forgot to write it in!!

I texted that picture to my sister in law with a caption...Thank goodness April's over!  Only to start filling in May's calendar which was almost as busy as April. 

But it's the beginning of summer vacation and my family is going to do a lot more around the house this summer than they've ever been asked to before.  I need them to help out.  For my sanity and their safety!!
