Okay...so hopefully you remember that I even have a blog!
The Beene clan is all still doing just fine. Kids are ready for summer and I'm ready for them to be able to stay home alone so I don't have summer daycare costs. :) Anyone have an extra grandma they want to send to live with me so she can watch my kids? I'm quite sure the kids would love her. :) We've tried hiring a few people in the past to watch them over the summer, but that never seems to work. We've had everything from just not showing up, leaving them home alone while she ran to the store, to stealing. I'm afraid I'm stuck with daycare and the poor kids will have to get up early just about every morning of their summer vacation. I hate it for them.
JD is still in Little Rock making the commute home every 2 weeks, but we've been lucky this month and for May - he's been home or we've been in LR pretty much every weekend. Somethings gotta give! We have a few things in the works, but I'm not quite ready to let that cat out of the bag yet..mainly because we really aren't sure there really is a cat even in the bag. Makes no sense, I know...maybe it will soon. (even to me!)
We have our pool up and running so I assume all daylight hours here on out will be spent with me having panic attacks around the pool. Better stock up on my xanex. I love having our pool, but no matter how well the kids swim, there is always anxiety on my part. We had a near drowning a few years ago and that moment haunts me. I will never forget the look on that little boys face when I pulled him out. I feel like most accidents happen when there are multiple adults out there...mainly because someone always feels like someone else is watching. So, I've designated myself the full time lifeguard. I drive my family and friends CRAZY! I'll admit I'm a bit neurotic...but better safe than sorry. Now, after saying all that...I LOVE our pool. I hope that we always have one. I'm sure my neurotic tendencies will lessen as the kids get older. Well, I hope they do.
So, sorry to turn this into a lecture on pool safety....it's near and dear to my heart.
I've been thinking about making a switch to Blogger....pretty much decided I'm going to, just have to figure out how to move everything and of course find the time to do it.
Until then...mucho love to you all!
