Just a busy life!!!

Well no real excuses except I lead a busy life!!! I start my morning at 5am and ends usually at 11:30pm sometimes even later, and I can never seem to get everything done:( Last week we were all dealing with colds- Ohio Valley crud, thanks to the crazy weather we have and the allergies in these parts. I ended up taking Miss L and H in to the doctors just to make sure it wasn't anything more serious. Well Miss L aka chubawuba- LOL! is up to 14.7lbs. Unfortunately a week later Miss L is still congested and coughing which is leading to more spit-up:( H also is still coughing etc and taking extra breathing treatments.
This past weekend we FINALLY got L's 3 month, M's 6 yr and H's 4 yr pictures, as well as all three of them together. We got some good pictures but it was frustrating because the studio was running behind, our appointment was at 10:40 and we finally got called back at 11:20!
Another reason I guess I haven't been blogging is because I'm struggling with a lot of things, we are struggling financially, and our marriage is struggling. I honestly believe if it weren't for the kids we would already be separated. I don't know how to explain it, other than we just aren't on the same page sometimes I feel as though we aren't even in the same book! We are just going through the motions. It sucks!
Not to change the subject but wanted to update about pumping. Looks like my days of pumping are almost over, I am producing less and less, I get less than .5oz a pump. Given the cost of renting the pump and our financial situation it just doesn't make sense. Believe me I wish I could continue, and my body would cooperate for once but it's just not the case. On top of that my husband isn't supportive of the pumping, he has been after me to stop pumping for over a month, but mommy's guilt has kept me going.
Anyhoo that's what has been going on. M is on fall break this Friday and next Monday and Tuesday so I'm hoping to do some fun stuff with the kiddos, looks like the weather is going to cooperate and be nice:)


  1. Pumping is hard. I'm officially stopping.

  2. You are amazing for pumping for so long, especially with three kids. I'm sorry you and your husband are having a tough time; I really hate hearing that. Praying for you.
