Busy

Today is a busy day. I will be honest, we home school and I work from home, so honestly there is very little of that getting up and out early for us around here. Thursday is a busy day for us usually. Jake has piano, then he has his choir. This fall Jake and Reagan joined the adult choir at church and somehow talked me into it as well. I am still not sure how that happened...but we get home on Thursdays about 9pm. OK - I know many of you are up earlier than me and home later than me on a regular basis - I am not seeking your sympathy, don't worry - but you do have mine. :)

Today we had to be out of the house by 8am - that is very early for us Grabbe people - well excluding Sean, who purposefully will set appointments for himself at 8am in order to get up and at 'em. That is very foreign to my understanding. I don't get why someone would choose to do that to themselves??? I LOVE it if I can stay in my Jammies 1/2 the day, or on the rare occasion I don't' have to go anywhere ALL day long!!! But this is about today, I was up at 6:30, had everyone dressed and out the door by 8, and we will not be back home until about 9pm tonight. To top it off we did a road trip last night to Helena and got home about 11:45pm. I am tired...did I mention that I am tired?

By the way, I am tired, but I am also HAPPY!! Oh so happy, because I can have a day where I can go all day and not have to worry about whether I will actually make it. When my health was so compromised it was very hard to make any plans because I never knew how I would feel the next day, much less ten minutes from now. It was hard. So, yes - I AM TIRED - but oh so glad I have the chance to be tired!!

"Never give up, never surrender" and all that...

It's nice to go to bed with a smile on your face and in your heart.
