Week(s) in Review

You may have noticed that I have been MIA lately....
Do you remember this post about my fall schedule being
Well it was worse than I thought it was going to be.
For the last two or three weeks,
The kids have had activities every day after work,
and frequently I leave my home at 8:00am and don't get home again until 9:00pm.
To make matters worse,
the other social worker at my office left and I am
managing a caseload of 80 patients instead of 40 patients
I have been on call for work 24/7 for the past two weeks.
I am pretty good at whining aren't I?
 Well here is some more whining...
In the past three and a half weeks,
I have seen my husband for a total of about 36 hours...
and that is NOT consecutive hours either.
There is an end in sight....
ALL fall sports END by November 10th.
I will be able to take a breath.
MANY thanks to my BFFs and parents for assisting with transporting children!
In-between school, football, baseball, cheering, chorus, #2's job, and my job,
here is a little of what we have been up to...
We have not carved pumpkins in many years...the kids begged to this year.
#2 sketching out her pumpkin's face
 Pretending to stab the pumpkin brought smiles to the twins.
 Can we ever get picture without someone being silly?
D came down and spent the night last Sunday for "family night"

Of course the twins would make their pumpkin "throwing up"
#2 trying to concentrate with crazy brothers

Celebrating all of the October birthdays at Maggiano's
#2, Virginia Mom, #4, Virginia Dad, #3

 Back in Kansas...
Fall Break in Florida with BFFs
Kansas Daughter, #1, and Missouri Daughter
 Looking forward to things slowing down in a few weeks!

Girlfriend you need a vacation sans kiddos!! LOL I always eat a piece of humble pie when I see how much you are doing. Hang in there. I have several girlfriends who have 4+ and it always scared the daylights out of me when they handed they newly 16 year old children car keys...but I totally get it!!! So many activities and everyone in different directions...driving themselves saved mom's sanity...if only for an hour or so! LOL
