not today

I am not washing my floor
I am not cleaning the toilet
I am not reading blogs
I am not reading email
I am not cleaning the van
I am not sweeping the porch
I am not painting my nails
I am not cleaning out the toy box
I am not washing diapers
I am not paying bills
I am not doing the dishes
I am not making dinner
I am not stressing today

I AM enjoying today.

Tonight Paul, Ozzie and Sadie {the dog} are leaving.
They are driving 16 hours to the family farm.
They need Pauls help planting and we need the work.

For the next three weeks it will just be me,
Eliza & Nolia.

When the boys finish with school the 6 of us will make our own 16 hour trip to the family farm...
for not sure how long?

It's going to be fun!
It's going to be an adventure!
It might be a bit hard!
It is going to be completely new!

Will you come along for the ride? {grin}

  1. WOW!! Sounds like a lot of work ahead of you both!!

    I wish you the best for those weeks! I am sure they will pass quick!!! And I am glad he will have some work for a while!!!

  2. What an adventure! Can't wait to hear more about your time on the Farm!

    I'm off to get the kids from their beds and go out and enjoy our beautiful weather....Of course they would take long naps on such a nice day.

    Thank goodness for a job where I can play hookie if I want. :)

  3. A 16 hour drive with 5 kids? You are one brave mama!

  4. Definitely sounds like the most logical way to divide and conquer while you guys need to be apart. ;) Here's hoping for safe travels both times and that all goes smooth!!!

  5. It DOES sound like an adventure! However, I'm sure you will miss your sweet Ozzie and husband.

  6. Definitely an adventure! I'm sure you'll miss your hubby and sweet baby boy for those 3 weeks though. I guess that would put another "pro" in the homeschooling'd all be able to go at the same time and you could homeschool the kids there :) Best of luck with the 5 kiddos by yourself...I'll say a prayer :)
