See this hottie? My main squeeze Jeremy Piven just won an Emmy for Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy. Now that I have Netflix, I have become addicted to the television show Entourage. I am halfway caught up through season 3. I think in two weeks the second half is available.
Anyway entire cast is awesome. I have a few new crushes because of that show: Adrian Grenier...Jeremy Piven...the other boys aren't necessarily my type, but I definitely think they are all awesome.
God he is HOT!

My friend AJ blogged today about how her oldest daughter is just like her. I can't decide if any of my kids are truly like me. I see parts of myself in each of them, but it's another story really feeling like they are just like you. Let me run through my kiddies:
Ryan: defiant, sassy, loves to test his limits at home, very well behaved at school, argumentative, soft hearted even though he doesn't want people to know it, kind to all types of kids, a perfectionist at school, enjoys being active, curious about the world around him, a very sensitive kid but I think only a few lucky people have seen that side of him.
Kate: genuinely kindhearted, sensitive, whiny, shy, friendly all the time, nervous for new situations, affectionate, quick witted, doesn't like to be overexerted AT ALL, a follower, loves to ask why, a drama queen.
Olivia (so far): funny, smily, becoming defiant, only does what she wants, stubborn, cuddly, sassy, loves to talk back, enjoys being active.
Honestly I think that our kids are a combination of us both. Thad claims that our kids' negative attributes come from me. The good ones come from him.
What do you think?

Being back at work & now having two kids in school has been an adjustment. I can't believe how exhausted I have been. When summer vacation began I remember thinking how tiring it was to run my kids around all day. Now that I am back at work, I find myself thinking the same thing--only opposite of the summer issues.
Is it the weather? Maybe it's because there are so many things to be done in the evening. I haven't even mentioned activities yet. The older I get, the more I realize that I am not a fan of change. It always takes awhile for me to grab my bearings and get used to it all.
So for now I will keep plugging away waiting for my mind and body to 'click' with this schedule.
**Note** for the majority of you mothers who work a fulltime job year round...bless you!

Back to School

The kids began school today. Ryan is a second grader & Kate is now in Kindergarten. Not be left out of the limelight, Olivia had to be in the picture with her brother and sister.
Here are some comments from the kids over the last two days:
Kate: "Daddy, I am kind of nervous for Kindergarten. I am a little shy you know."
Ryan: "Are they going to tell Kate where to get off the bus? She doesn't pay attention like I do. I don't want her to be scared."
Kate: "I hate school."
Ryan: "Second grade is way easier than first grade."
Olivia: "Shut up Ryan"
