I am basically writing this post so that in 20 years from now 'IF' I have nothing to do on a Saturday I can appreciate it and remember how busy life was. There are a few weeks out of the year when basketball and baseball overlap. That time has come again. Five of the six boys are playing baseball (all on different teams....I had them far enough apart that they will NEVER be in the same divisions) and 3 playing basketball. So, that means 3 basketball practices during the week, usually one night game, minimum of 7 baseball practices during the week, 4 basketball games on Saturday and 5 baseball practices on Saturday. I fell victim to being guilted into being team mom for two of the teams. Nobody volunteered, and I felt bad for two seconds and said I would do it, but I let them know that I would most likely mess things up, and if they set low expectations they would be pleased with my efforts....I also disclosed that I have a bad attitude and won't go to any meetings (I know, I am a total butthead). I didn't think the coaches would accept under those conditions, but they were desperate. Honestly, one of the things I am so afraid of is that I can't remember moms usually know the players names and the names of their parents, it makes me look like a jerk, but I'm not being a snob, I'm just kind of brain dead and I am not very observent.....this can not have a good outcome....wish me luck! Needless to say, I am so very, very tired! I would feel super successful IF my house was clean, but I will be honest and let you know that it looks like a bomb exploded in here! Oh well, maybe in 20 years my house will be clean. At least I got an hour break today to train a client, it is a joy to watch my boys be active, healthy and strong, the weather was beautiful today, I got to just sit and hold Eldon, and I have a valid excuse for not having a clean house!

I really have no idea how you do it. You amaze me.

About Me

My photo it goes. I am a mother of 5 crazy boys....ages 10 months to 11 years. I have been married for twelve and a half years to an even crazier boy!!! I am not sure how he has put up with me for so long, and then I remember that he is as big of a goofball as me! I get to stay at home with the boys, but I work about 6 whole hours a week teaching fitness classes. I think I am funny when I remind Scott that I am independently wealthy (if you knew how much I made, you might think it is funny too)! I do love to work out, and without it I would be about 500 pounds and completely insane. Well, that about sums it up. I am looking forward to keeping a record of the completely abnormal behavior of my perfect family!
