I wasn't nervous about flying until this past week when I listened to the woes others had with flights and tickets and standby.

Ahem. I am flying standby on purpose.

Try to save a buck or 60% of my bucks and fly this way.

Now.....I am kinda wishing I had a ticket. But not for the price!

It's been a

So I haven't blogged all month. That is partly because to start September off my toddlers decided nap time was no longer a go and became a no - go.

My baby decided he could climb out of the crib and hang on the side and jump up and down. It was very unsafe so I went to the store and bought a mattress the very next day.  Once the mattress was home I had to go into the attic and pull the bed that we had up there down. We put the bed together.

The boys who weren't sleeping the previous 2 days now are too excited to actually go to bed. So imagine my surprise when I got to sleep until 8:28 this morning.

Earlier this month my first toddler celebrated his 3rd birthday. We didn't have a party or anything. Daddy went running on Saturday, we went to Church on Sunday and his birthday was on Monday. We did things pretty low key and I made a cake and we ate at home.

Then that weekend my daughter and I left to travel to attend the memorial service for my uncle. While we were gone my van decided to act up severely. Our outing turned into a quick trip home. Once home it was all down hill from there over the course of the next few hours.

Both cars ended up in the shop. One was towed there. One was driven there. Both were driven away from the shop one was repaired and one was not. The vehicle that was not repaired became a mission to replace. It was our family wagon.

So we washed away our dreams of a bigger home. Bought a new car. And decided that God was watching over us.

Then toddler 2 celebrated his 2nd birthday. Dad was at a camp out and nephew was having a birthday party on his actual birthday so we celebrated a day late. It's the norm for this missed his first birthday. Dad missed his 2nd. Mission all of us together for his 3rd now in progress.

This week we are celebrating a promotion and a small pay raise. God sure is good, isn't he?

I had to "work" last night. I hate when they schedule calls for 8pm. Everyone else puts their kids to bed at 7:00 or 7:30 or 8:00 that's on the call. When my kids bedtime has been 9pm for 10 years! I feel like I missed out on an hour of family time. And the call didn't tell me anything I didn't already know. It isn't my first rodeo. (Rodeo being a code word for event).
