Nothing Special

It's been so long since I did an update that I figured I'd add a little something, even if it's nothing special. I'm traveling so much that I don't have access to my camera and all my recent photos but I'll add some later, I promise.

Speaking of travel, have I mentioned that I have the best husband EVER? My work has been very demanding over the past few weeks and while I knew it would be hard, I didn't realize I'd be so melancholy when I stepped on another airplane. Being on the road is tough. There's no glamour. The only benefits are good meals and a good night's sleep (because there are no children climbing into bed and no dogs pawing at my arm needing to go out for a pee). Then again, isn't that what being a mom is all about? I mean, won't there come a time when I'll wish I could hear the pitter patter of small feet walking into my room to snuggle with me? And someday I'll be sad when dog breath isn't greeting me as I crawl out of bed. But the thing is, I know that everyone is taken care of because Jason is a wonderful father. AND, we have wonderful grandparents and aunts that are always willing to pitch in when needed. I'm so blessed.

Meanwhile, I've been trying to fill the gaps with super mom stuff. We've had a great time with the kids lately packing our days with activities and fun. I went with Dakota's school on their field trip last week and Elle and I had a special mother/daughter breakfast at Daylight Donuts the other morning. We made a family appearance at the Missouri vs. OU game last Saturday and I woke the kids on Sunday morning for a quick swim in the hotel pool. They felt like they were on vacation. One stop at the OKC IHOP and then we were off for Tulsa.

Everyone cross your fingers that I can get it together enough to round up some decent Halloween costumes and that Jason maintains his sanity. Did I mention that we want to throw some home improvement projects into the mix? We're absolutely crazy...

Off to a trade show...I'll be in touch.
