Better a short story

Aug

than to never hear from me. So, I always think I need a good chunk of time, uninteruppted, while my mind is fresh and creative. Nope, hasn’t happened yet, so I am realizing I just have to write, if I want to note for myself (and others) the life I get to live.

So, currently I am sitting in my kitchen, with a pile of dishes from the past 2-3 days. I am not a great house keeper, but trying to get better. I get distracted by the computer, my books, my kids, my stomach, and all other varieties of excuses. I do keep up on my laundry….you can see the clean stuff piled high in my room (another goal to get to tonight after I’ve mastered my Sangria for tomorrow). Yes, we are having company, so I need to get on it. I’ve already detailed one of our bathrooms….and have all the cleaning supplies overwhelming our other. (If this is too scary I can edit nicer versions, just let me know). I hope to become cleaner person in this life. I don’t know how my husband is creative and hard working….I seem to only be able to move in one at a time.
So my hubby is off beer tasting….I think he’s only have one…since he has to drive home. But I’m glad he’s out with his buddies. He is the hardest working person I know, and I’m so glad he loves his work (sometimes a little too much).
Update on life…..so Colby is currently 2 1/2 and then some….I was never good at the weeks thing….and so I just say 2 1/2 until he hits 3…..much easier that way. He has just started to jump (I think he’s catching up…yeah!) and he’s singing all the time and signing, too. He can actually hold a tune, and is pretty handsome (he looks exactly like Adam as a young boy).
Kyle (1 year 1 month) – my independent (most of the time at home) son, who gives the best smiles, is starting to chat and coping words I say. He is so sweet! His fake cry is pretty cute, totally turned on and off…..smarty!
Ryan (a few seconds younger than Kyle) – my cheesier attention grabber, (makes me have to single out mr. independent -kYle) adventure boy.
All 3 run around the house exploring…..and playing. They love the water, outside, inside -especially behind the bookshelf or on the shelf. The twins teach Colby some new (and sometimes bad) habits. They seem to all copy each other. We just got the twins shoes, seeing that they have been walking for a few months and someday we have to un-contain them and so the fair was our first attempt at letting them ‘run free’. (I know some will think I’m a ‘mean’ Mom, but I think for safety I may be getting a twin leash).
I do have to say that I couldn’t have made it through the last year without all the help of my family (and friends, who I never see). Life has been so busy, and I always am expecting myself to jump back into the way it was with just one. That’s when it helps to hear your mom say….”Hey, you have twins.”……oh, yeah!
Well, my dishes can talk, yes, they are alive via the stuff growing (o.k. – that hasn’t happened yet, I’m not gross). And I need to tidy our house for the weekend and fun = company.
Love to all and to all a good night,
Becky
P.S. I still have to figure out how to add pics and stuff …..any one good at developing a blog page and could help a sista out with some tips…
