Been so lax

About posting in here!  I feel bad but at the same time, it's nice to be busy. 

We've been spending so much time with Wayne and Amy.  This past weekend, Wayne brought their daughter Lexi over and came with my family to Eastmont Orchards where we go apple picking every fall.   There are 50 pounds of apples in my kitchen right now.  I need to get to baking but this weekend I'm going away.  

Is it awful that I am so psyched to get away from my kids?  I need a break from them and Steve and I are trying to figure out a way for me to go back to work.  We have a plan for moving out of Keansburg and the deadline is before Rachel starts high school.  So we have a lot of work to do, improving our credit and sending Steve back to school.  It's going to be hard, but I think it's the only way to achieve the quality of life that we want. 

What else?  Joey is scooting around on his belly and it's so cute.   Andy is talking more and more and I think he's ready to start potty training.  I'm not looking forward to the messes I know we'll have to clean up but I am so sick of diapers.

"Is it awful that I am so psyched to get away from my kids?"

I could laugh so hard right now. No, it's not awful. It's far from awful. What would be awful is if you couldn't leave them, because let me tell you--they're designed so that they can leave you.

My mother gave me a pile of guilt about it last night. I'm going to another state for a weekend and leaving them with Steve. He leaves them with me all the time and I stay at home with them. I don't understand why she believes that since giving birth, I am no longer entitled to a life of my own. She thinks they should be with me at all times, which is ironic since she was a working mother.

It really pisses me off.

I really don't want to think about them leaving me just yet!

Hey-- when does Meg get back?

Wednesday. Gone for a week. She must be a bad mother because she's leaving for work, just like you're leaving for sanity. Because as we all know, parenthood takes neither money nor a stable mind.

Good thing too, because I have neither!

Good for you for getting away! You totally deserve to go.

I think it's funny that in all of the brain dump I posted, the part I keep getting comments on is my escape!

It's going to be a really fun trip, with a long car ride, but I am so psyched, words just aren't enough!

I wondered who the other kid(s) were in the apple picking pics! :)

Does Steve have any interest in still trying for a police department? I know of a good one in my area ;)

Where you going this weekend?
