End of a season

Well I wouldn’t say end…more like a pause.

2 out of 4 of our children are playing spring soccer right now. Their last game is next Saturday. I am sad for them that the season is ending but oh so glad because that means that I don’t have to sit out in 100* weather for 2 hours out of the day. Oh and I will be able to actually sleep in on Saturdays now too!
Our 6 year old will actually start soccer camp the first week of June. I really hope he enjoys that!
All 4 are wanting to play in the fall, so Saturdays will be extra busy then!

Another pause to a season is coming for me. I have been working in the 2 year old room at our church every Sunday for the past few months. I have really been enjoying it..both the kids & the lead teacher. I have told the director that this Sunday (tomorrow) will be my last day until August when school starts up again. As much as I am enjoying it..I end up hurting so much afterwards. I am not wanting to go into labor early because I don’t know when to say ‘when’. Much rather be safe than sorry.

So those are things that are ending over the next 2 weeks. And school will be following very shortly!
Hope that you all are having a great weekend! 🙂


Getting Old

I am 27 and my husband will be 30 this year……we are getting old 😉

My husband loves watching and playing soccer! He played on a team last spring and fall but didn’t play the winter league. So when the spring league started this year he was excited and ready to sign up!
In preparation to the season starting he started playing some pick up games and playing around with our kids. The kids and I went to a pick up games a few weeks ago and he had collided with another player and fell to the ground. He was a little sore the next day and he thought that he had pulled a muscle on his right side. Well that pain went away and we thought nothing of it until…….

Until this one day. We were going somewhere in the truck, I can’t remember where, and he sneezed. As soon as he sneezed he grabbed his side and said ‘Ouch!’ I started laughing and joking about how he is getting old! It’s always been a joke between us that he is older then me. But anyway, now every time, or close to, he sneezes his side hurts.

Who would have thought that a little sneeze would cause pain?! So yea, we are getting old 😉


Half day Wednesdays

My husband works full time turning wrenches. He works Monday – Friday and has every weekend off (thankfully!) He worked half days on Wednesday because of the overhead (too many hours that the employees are putting out). It was great because he was able to get a break during the week from work (who doesn’t like that) & it was great for me because he was able to help me out more then usually because he was getting off at 1pm instead of 6pm.
Well his boss has made some changes. I was afraid that my husband was going to tell me that he was going to have to start working Saturdays (8am-5pm)…..that would have sucked BIG time! But he told me yesterday after he was off work that he would no longer have half day Wednesdays 😦 His boss wants a certain amount of full time workers there for a certain amount of time.

This change in schedule is bitter sweet though. Bitter because he doesn’t get a break during the week, less time with family, less time helping me around the house, and he won’t be able to make his weekly pick up games with his soccer buddies. I think he is more upset that he can’t go play with this friends then anything 😉 Also for me this is bitter because this was my one day a week that I didn’t have to play taxi driver. It was a nice break.
Sweet because it means that his paychecks will be more which is always good! No one in their right mind would be upset that they will be making more money! It just sucks that there is this change and I know it will take some getting used to.

In the end I think, overall, this will be a good change and it will benefit us. Cheers {insert clang of glasses} to making more money 🙂 Boo {insert sound of crying baby} for having to give up family & friend time 😦
