So I started working completely full time 2 weeks ago and honestly, I'm really enjoying it as of right now. In a month it's possible that I could be singing a different tune, but right now it's nice to have a routine and not have to be stressed out about homework and tests and studying. I just want to do mind numbing work all day and then come home and play with my kids and watch mind numbing tv until bed for the rest of the summer!!

As far as the kids go, everything is good as far as their health goes for once. Brooklyn seemed a little sick this afternoon but the kids were both pretty good. Brad is starting to enter into his terrible twos and is testing his limits around every corner. He wants to know if we're going to let him cross the line on every little thing. It's been hard because I feel like he's in time out all the time and I feel like I'm constantly mad at him. Poor thing. But we're definitely holding our ground because this is a crucial point for him to understand what he can and can't do. I'm super tired because I'm getting up at 5:20 every morning and I honestly don't know how I juggle a full time job, two kids, getting the house cleaned, the kids fed, going to the gym, and still having time to do something for myself every night. It's like there isn't enough time in the day. I wish I was one of those people that could stay up until midnight and still be ok with getting up at 5:00. My life would be a lot more smooth and probably less stressful, except I would be dead to the world for the entire day.

Twilight has completely captured me!!!

It's been way too long!! Ever since school got out I haven't had any time to write. I went back to work at the beginning of May and even though work pretty much sucks, it's kind of nice to not have to worry about school and homework and stress about grades. For three months I can look forward to 8-5 mind numbing work that means absolutely nothing at the end of the day. So that's nice! On the homefront, the kids are good. Brad is starting to go through his terrible 2's a month too early and has been nothing but defiant for the last little while. It's tough because I hate being mad at him and when he looks at you with those big brown eyes and long dark eyelashes you just want to hug him, but he's testing his limits so nows the time that rules need to be established. Brooklyn is good. She is getting better at grabbing toys and she is getting closer to sitting up on her own every day. She rolled over from her stomach to her back the other day and it was so amazing! I was so worried that she was physically behind in her age group, but I think she'll be right on cue! She gets cuter every day and I'm pretty sure we'll have a couple of teeth before long.

On another topic, I finished "Twilight" today and I'm so obsessed! I haven't been this way about a book in a long time. It's the kind of thing that emotionally captures you and you wish more than anything that there is someone like Edward out there (if I was single of course.) I honestly don't remember the last time I read a book and felt so in love with the main character. It's like I wish I were Bella! Anyways, the movie comes out in December and I'm literally counting down the days. The trailer portrays him exactly as I would have imagined him so this movie might actually be better than mos book to movies are. I'm so excited.

I'm also super excited for Sex and the City movie! May 30th. I don't know why I got so connected to that show, but when I watched the series for the first time I think I was in a time in my life where I wanted to feel single and happy in New York City. Maybe that was one of the reasons that I wanted to move to Connecticut. I was only going to be an hour away from New York City, and in the back of my mind, I literally saw myself as Carrie walking through Times Square without a care in the world. I don't know. If nothing else it will be a fun girls night out!
