School prep

It's finally time to go back to school, and here in Utah that doesn't start until next week. Am I the only one who has big plans to do school work allllllll summer long and then finds themselves, at the end of the summer, cramming the week before? This week we are cramming, trying to remember what it's like to focus on something for more than five minutes at a time.

Max says "I'm going to preschool and my brothers are going to regular school."
Unfortunately Max is not going to preschool and I'm not sure how to break it to him.
I'm sad today because I've had to change my work schedule again for the six-thousandth time. Our babysitter is going back to school, so I'm staying home during the week with my boys and working the weekends. I already miss the stock room. I know it sounds ridiculous, but I loved that job! No customers, only my awesome stock crew, which consists of four little tiny girls like me working hard... loud music on the radio and a deadline to beat. It's a good feeling at the end of every stock shift and I'm going to miss it. But my boys are more important, so for now, this is what we'll do! Back to backpacks and lunches and homework.

My twenty-eighth birthday is in two weeks. You read that right, twenty-eight. I'm old and still completely psyched for my birthday. I don't think I'll ever stop looking at birthdays as incredibly important and exciting events during which I should be treated like a princess.

I am simultaneously having a panic attack about money, upcoming kid birthdays, six different government agencies wanting paperwork from me, dealing with the separation issues with Steve and I, and all the other things have got me all worked up. Anxiety is through the roof today, my nerves are completely shot.

More often than not lately I want to just run away. But instead... on to another day.


  1. Great Blog Aubrey. Happy Early Bday :-) all will get better soon. Well maybe not soon but will get better.

  2. I found out I'm the same way with the summer schoolwork lol! Matt got a whole folder with about five packets of stuff to review. I think we did one of them.
    It sucks about your work schedule. I had to scale back to weekends only when Eric started his job and I miss it, too.

  3. Hey Aubrey. Stopping by again to let you know I nominated you for the Liebster Award. Don't know if you've gotten one already.


Comments make me ultra happy! Tell me who you are, what you think, why you're here...
