No Badge For You…

That's what I heard.  Not what they said, but what I heard. For six weeks we've spent every morning at the pool.  In Level one.  He's done amazingly well.  Went from not being able to put his face in the water to being able to do a front glide, front swim, front float.  But he can't jump in yet.  And he can't float on his back...and he just doesn't have the self confidence to let go long enough to do it. And I feel like crap.  If you … [Read more...]

What a busy weekend Mixing a few posts into one! Contest winner, and a new contest!!

I have to say, I have not been so tired as I am right now in a long time. As some of you know, I have recently taken over my step fathers Billiards Club. My working hours have more than doubled, and I am tired. I have to ask, how do people who work full time with young kids do it?? My space is a mess. My laundry pile has gone from my knees to my waist. I've made 1 home cooked meal in the last week. (And boy was it yummy) And most of all, I miss … [Read more...]
