I'm all over the place on this one....

* Tuesday basically kicked my butt. Chewed me up and spit me out. But in the end, something good came out of it. First of all, I was reminded yet again that I have super awesome bosses who are very understanding about my having kids and responsibilities, and that they came first. It confirmed that I'm doing the right thing by changing my schedule. But also...it showed me that I have some awesome friends.
I asked a question on Facebook and had several people offer to help me out. Some of these people are high school friends - whom I have not seen since high school! I'm thinking I must've been really nice back then. Come to think of it, that was before I developed my bitchy side. Life pushing you around (literally and figuratively) will do that to a person.
Anyway, I was very touched by all of the offers of help and I think I have some things figured out now, at the very least a solid back-up plan. It's lifted a load off of me.

* Be sure to come visit on Friday. Not only is it Friday, which makes it automatically awesome, but it's a special day for me and I'm going to be celebrating!

* I am LOVING watching Elayna play softball. I think she's doing great, especially for a first-timer. She's enjoying it, and that's what matters most! I hadn't hung out at the field in a long time, and I've missed it.

~love it!~

* I'm leaving you with some random photos from summer that I just got around to uploading.

These are some great shots! I'm surprised you waited so long! I really like the crab shot, probably because I never see those around here. Love the shadow shot, too.
