I Don't Know Whether to Scratch my Watch or Wind My Butt!

{Anyone know what movie that's from?}

I am very glad to see Friday roll around!

Mommy's Idea

This was my first week at my new job. I only worked two days, but today was a busy one and it kicked my butt! This job is great because I basically set my own schedule. I can be home when the kids get home from school, but on days that they're not home, I can work later (and make more money!).

On Thursday, my Littles (Elayna & Andrew) went to Saint Augustine on a school field trip. They had a blast and Elayna took about a million pictures. I'll be posting them here soon! Well, some of them anyway. I won't subject you to all 983,276.

Thanks for all your concern & sweet words about my burn. I have 1st and 2nd degree burns. Mostly first though. They're healing well and not very painful any more. In fact, the fingernail I broke way down deep today hurts far more!

We have a crazy busy weekend ahead. Tomorrow is our March for Babies, and tomorrow night we are all getting together to celebrate my husband, father and oldest son's birthdays. They were all born in March! Which I think is kind of interesting.
Then on Sunday, we'll be moving all day. A bunch of guys from church are coming with trucks & trailers to help us out. Have I mentioned lately how much I love our church family? They are AWESOME.

Speaking of love. I can't even explain how much we love our new home. After looking at homes in other school districts, one total dump, and even considering an apartment, we found this absolutely amazing little home out in the woods. Instead of being bummed about the move, we're all excited now. One of the things I'm most excited about? There's a chicken coop there, and the landlords are going to give us some of their laying hens! WOOHOO Fresh Eggs!

Next week is my kids' Spring Break. My kids will be with their Dad, and Andrew will be with his Grandma. It's going to be so weird for them to be gone for a whole week! But I have a feeling I'm going to stay very busy & it will fly by.

Time for the Song of the Week! I love this one. Enjoy & have a great weekend!
And don't forget to visit Mrs 4444 for more Friday Fragments.

Steel Magnolias? I know Dolly Parton said it. Lol

Steph said...

Steel Magnolias for sure! :)

Those times when our kids are with their other parents are strange for us too!

Happy Friday!

Mama Jules said...

How did I not realize it was Steel Magnolias? I love that movie. Thanks ladies!

I have a hard time when my kids spend 1 night somewhere. I would go nuts if it was a whole week.

Good luck with the move. And the chickens!

Amy said...

So happy things are going well for you.

Love hearing that you have all the help moving, and found a job that works around your kids schedules, and chickens!

You deserve it.

another quote from that movie "When it comes to pain and suffering, she's right up there with Elizabeth Taylor." That's a timely one for this week.
congrats on the job.
that was a new song for me - all I can say that jerk had way too many toys.
