Stuck in the MIDDLE

So this week I was every much stuck in the middle. Meaning my membership to the sandwich generation was in full force.

Dad wake me up at about 4:15am on Tuesday morning with serve stomach cramping, chest pains and I will spare you the other deals...think stomach flu times 10. He ASKED to go to the hospital, which he never does or will ask unless he really needs thinks he needs to go. So with the request and his history of heart attack and stroke off the ER we go. After being there for about 2 hours the ER doc decide dad needed to stay but because they weren't sure what was going on with the GI thing he need a isolation room...meaning longer wait for a room.

This also happened to fall on the day of Tyler's first field trip(to the local Apple Orchard). Tyler was all about me going with him on this field trip. Thank goodness Matt was able to take off and go on the field trip and Tyler understood I had to be with grandpa because he was sick. But it was so upsetting to me that I had to miss the field trip. I felt like I was letting my son down.

Sometimes it sucks being put in the middle!

First Day of Kindergarten

Tyler started Kindergarten at the end of August. I am still in shock he is even old enough to be in . It feels like yesterday he was a baby or a toddler running around discovering things for the first time.

He is pretty excited and scared all at the same time, even now 6 weeks into the school year he still gets weepy in the morning and tells me he is going to miss me while he is at school. But he knows I am going to be at the bus stop at the end of the day and he is armed with a few pictures of mommy and daddy.

Tomorrow is Tyler's first school field trip and I am going to chaperon! Ty and I are very excited!

Here are a few picture's from the first day of school!

October All Ready? REALLY?

I just can't believe we are already 5 days in October! I feel like time is flying by so fast I can't keep up!

At the end of August Tyler started Kindergarten and he has been having a time adjusting to the long hours. He is gone from 7:45am to about 3:15pm everyday. He cries and then pukes just about every morning and then at the beginning he was crying almost 2 hours at night. I thought I was going to lose my mind. But we came up with a plan for snack and an earlier bedtime and that is helping with the afternoon and evening meltdowns. We are now trying to come up with a plan for the mornings. Other then the adjustment problems before and after school he is says he likes school and his teacher and seems to be doing well.

A few days after school started dad was scheduled to come home Sept 1st but that didn't happen. Then airline kicked dad off the flight because he was flying alone and couldn't use the bathroom on his own and he didn't have a companion. Which I called and asked if he need one and was lead to believe he didn't. So he went back to his brothers and spent a few more days with them since he and my uncle couldn't get a flight out until 4th of Sept. He is home now and we learned a lesson. So the next time he flies over someone will be flying with him. He seems happy to be home and enjoying his time with Tyler!

So now that things are starting to slow down. I am looking to get into a routine with keeping up with stuff around the house and spend more time meal planning so we better and save some money! I am also hoping to get back to growing my jewelry business and spent some time a the gym. I really do feel better after a good work out. Now all I need to do is to make sure I get back at it 3-4 days a week!

I am working on picking out some pics from the first day of school to post and hoping to post again soon!
