Is it Time for School Yet?

I counted down the days until school ended this year. I was looking forward to spending the day at the pool with my kids along with other great things I had planned. I couldn't wait to not have to pack any lunches or wait in the car pool lane at school to drop off my kids. Summer sounded so wonderful.

I had planned an RV trip across the country, Vacation Bible School, sleepovers at friends houses, zoo days, gymnastics classes and swim team. Between all these activities I thought we'd spend lazy days at the pool with friends.

And now, I'm counting down the days until school starts. I've never been so exhausted in my life. Carrying three bags of toys, snacks, sunscreen, water and toys to and from the pool every day just to have my kids complain that it's too hot makes me want to scream. I'm constantly running here and there and volunteering at VBS has about killed me.

I've been running my kids ragged trying to keep them entertained and having fun. Meanwhile, I'm finding myself going to bed at 9pm because I can't keep my eyes open. I need a break from my summer break - it's called "school". Come on September - hurry!

Maternity Underwear

If anyone knows of a good, comfortable type of maternity underwear, please let me know about it. I honestly don't think any such thing exists.

Due to the fact that my regular underwear have started to roll up under my expanding tummy. I was forced to go in search of something more flattering for a pregnant body. I stood at Target for at least 20 minutes trying to figure out what size I'd need and what type of cut. I eventually bought a broader cut than I normally wear and one size up.

Once home I took my new undies out and held them up. I have never seen a larger pair of underwear in all of my life. I laughed and thought how ridiculous they were and then my laughter turned to tears as I tried them on and they actually fit like a glove. A year and a half of regular gym workouts shot to hell with 18 weeks of pregnancy.
