Busy Busy Busy!

You ever have one of those weeks where it seems like you have way too much to do and not enough time to do it in? Well, every week from now until the beginning of July is going to be like that for our family.
This week is crazy because hubby and his SILLY (stupid really, but I'm not supposed to use that word and when I do, TJ gets on my case...) ship are out until Friday. That's right, the ship, the same one that was out for 6 months is out again. It will come back Friday in the late afternoon, be home for the weekend and go out AGAIN for 8 days. *update* I just got an email from the Ships liason saying the ships email is down and their return date is uncertain. Prayer would be appreciated!

TJ's Mothers Day Party for his class is Wednesday. I had been counting on hubby being home so he could be with Little Guy and The Princess so I could go and just enjoy being with him. Now all THREE of us will be going, which should make for an interesting morning.

Here is a list of things I just need to get done today:

*Clean Kitchen, dishes, counters, floors
*Vacuum downstairs
*Laundry: wash, fold, put away
*clip coupons
*Clean the bathrooms
*straighten boys room

Which doesn't seem like a lot until you throw 3 kids and our newest addition into the mix!

Hubby gave me my Mothers Day gift a week early, I got a Teacup Chihuahua! He is 4 yrs old, which is GREAT. That means I don't have to housebreak him. Its already done! He is about 7 inches tall, and probably weighs 3-4 lbs. SO SWEET! And docile. No incessant barking, yipping or whining. His name is Bandit, or as I like to call him El Bandito!

The pressure is on us because we are going to be moving to the great Mid-West in 2 months. We have a TON of stuff to pack between now and then. I am trying to weed through stuff we haven't used in a while and either sell it, or "GASP" throw stuff away! Its a little hard to get everything done with hubby in and out, but after this next time he is going to try and use his 10 day house hunting leave while the ship goes out in June.

I think TJ is hitting a growth spurt, he is eating everything in sight!
We had just eaten breakfast this morning about 15 minutes earlier when he started in again about it, "I am SO hungry Mommy!"
"You just ate!"
"Well, I only have a LITTLE party in my tummy, I need a BIG party in my tummy now!"

I will be praying for a lot of grace, and smooth sailing all around for you in the upcoming months.
