Life is Crazy

A year and a half has gone by since I have even looked at my blog. It is a little sad to me. I look back at this blog as a record of my life...that is neat to me. And now I have almost two years missing from my life.
I went from being home full time, to one job that I stayed 6 months and then decided to go somewhere else. I have been at my "new job" a year now. It is good. It is a Christian Camp and Retreat Center. I couldn't ask for better people to work with. Yet, it is full time work. It is overwhelming to work full time and try to be a mom, a wife, and a person all at the same time.
I enjoy my work, yet I feel guilt that I am not home. I am not taking care of my kids to the standard I would like. I am not cooking, cleaning and spending the amount of time I feel like they need.
I don't have energy to grocery shop and plan meals. Somehow they are still eating, but I don't think they are getting many of the food groups towards the bottom of the pyramid!
The kids are growing so fast. Julia is 10 in a week and in 4th grade. How did my baby get to be 10? Harrison is 7 and in 1st grade. They are both wonderful in their own ways. They love my new job as they get to go to camp in the summer, ride on floats in parades and on occasion go to work with me.
We stay busy doing life. I am ready for a little break. Not sure that is going to come.
I do have much to be thankful for. I am trying to focus on that for now.
There is so much I want to cram into here. I want to update myself on 2 years of life. I guess I could summarize it all into Life is Crazy!
