I realize the insane amount of time it has been since I have posted anything on this blog.  I quite frankly don't know how to fit it into our crazy chaotic lives most of the time.  I truly want to have a wonderful year and I really want to get our house really cleaned up and organized along with our time and finances and everything that decided blogging is something I want to be able to add to my schedule.  I like to write and I like to have a place I can put feelings out about my family and life and joys struggles and such. 

We spent the last part of 2012 and the beginning of 2013 with family.  One of my biggest issues the past year is how far away we are from my family and friends and how much I wish we had that support system here.  If I had a job opportunity in Missouri we would be gone so fast!  I pray that this year brings us that type of support system out here in some way.  I think that after the turmoil the last couple of years has been for us, we were exactly where we needed to be as we rang in the new year! 

The kids and I have had the last 2 weeks off of school/work and Mike has been able to be with us most of the time as well.  We really have been able to just be.  Friday was the first day I looked at anything school related.  Thursday we hit the ground running with our business.  We were given very short notice that the man we rent office space from was going to be moving our business and wanted to be out in 15 days.  Though we believed he was crazy (and still do) we started looking for what could be our next office.  Three offices later we found the one we will be moving into this week. 

Today we spent the day at Ikea buying office furniture and spent the evening doing lesson plans and putting Mikes man space (the garage) back together. 

I am seriously mourning the end of break, but trying to keep the excitement of what is to come in the forefront of my mind to lead me through the back to school blues!
