Busy, but good.
Now that fall is around the corner and school has begun, our days are starting to become more patterned and predicatable.
I kind of like it.
Other than the whole school bus comes at 7:13am thing.
That I could do without.
But then we have a bit of time to hang around the house before Derek and I head out to the gym. He pumps some iron while I play in the kids area.
Then we run errands or head home for lunch and naptime, and play until it's time to go pick up Alex from school.
She has dance class one afternoon a week, and both kids have started going to Awanas at a local church on Wednesday nights.
Last time, Josh was home from work during Awanas and we went out to dinner.
We're hoping for a repeat of that tonight if he's off work in time.
Derek is going to a Mother's Day Out program one morning a week, so I can run errands on my own.
So life is just swimming along, and we are feeling blessed.
Oh. And hold the presses.
THIS JUST IN:
My kid is completely potty trained. EXCLAMATION POINT.
We've only made it through half of the original box of pull-ups I bought, and he's now in big boy undies full-time. I still put him in a diaper at night, although most mornings he wakes up dry.
Can I just get a little hallelujah?
I mean, this is such a difference from the experience we had with Alex, and I am so delighted.
No more diapers! No more swimmies! No more pull-ups!
I could totally write a song about it.
But I wont.
Consider it a favor to you.
In other news of the happy, we leave soon for our trip to the Mouse's House.
Do you know what manner of Disney World geek I am?
Allow me to tell you:
I'm a geek. A nerd. A groupie.
Call me what you will, but when I go to Disney World, I have a plan.
Actually, I have 4 plans. One for each park.
And my plans list the order we will tour as well as the best snack and meal locations.
When you reach a particular ride that has two lines, I know which one to get in that increases your odds of getting on that ride faster.
Best way to use Fastpasses? Yep, I know 'em.
Height restrictions? Check.
Want to know the best "secret locations" for a parade? Well, don't ask me cause I don't like no stinkin' parades. They get in the way of my ride plans.
But I can tell you everything else.
So I have been plugging away on the disney travel forums, lurking and watching while geeks of a higher level than I discuss which resorts have the highest-ply toilet paper.
I wish I were joking.
But I will have my fun. Mark my words.
And no children will be permitted to become ill and make me deviate from my plans.
So there you have it. Life is Good in the Schore house.
We are thankful, and hope Life is Good in your house too!
