so the races last Friday were awesome! My father in law and husband did a great job on the drag strip 🙂 they had a blast as well. I couldn’t be more proud of them! The kids and I had an amazing time as well. Everyone got along better than expected. Then there was a Bret Michaels concert afterwards. It was really great too. It was the first time I’ve ever seen him, so it was pretty cool for me. It was also my daughter’s first concert. She was so awkward at first because she didn’t know what to do. Lol. But after a while she loosened up and started to dance some. I can’t say the same for my in law’s girlfriend. She didn’t dance much. But oh well.
The rest of the weekend was mostly rain, so we only went over for Friday’s festivities. The rest of the weekend I spent with my mom and grandma. Went to Joann Fabric and got some light up crochet hooks! Finally! I can’t wait to test them out. I’ve been tediously working on finishing a large corner to corner afghan for a friend though, so my hands are pretty tired by the time bedtime rolls around. I can feel my crochet mojo coming back though. I lost it for a few weeks for some reason, but it’s back with a vengeance! Haha
Well, time for some shuteye. Busy day tomorrow! Hope everyone has a wonderful evening!
this weekend, we will be spending two days with my father in law over in Ohio for some steel valley racing. My husband and father in law will be racing cars on Friday. It should hopefully be a fun time. 🙂 the only part of it that gives me a little spike of anxiety is my in laws girlfriend. Sometimes she can be a bit overbearing with the kids and with things in general. Her daughter isn’t a very “involved” mother with her kids, and she kinda acts like all moms are like her daughter. It can be taxing at times, because I’m a full time mommy. So I am with and taking care of my kids 24/7. I know what makes them cry, what makes them smile, what triggers tantrums and how to deal with said tantrums in an appropriate manner. Not saying I’m super mom, we all have our “Hulk” moments, but I feel that I’m doing a pretty bang up job here as a mom. It’s bad enough to have my own mother second guess me at times, it’s just downright frustrating when someone else’s mom does the same thing. So I shall try to keep my composure. I shall try to be nice and not let her little quips and repetitive stories about her grandkids annoy me. I shall try to enjoy my weekend away from home, and dishes, and laundry; and I shall be happy to spend time with my family.
Prayers are always welcome, though. 😉
life has been so crazy busy lately. Tennis practice on Tuesday and Thursday for my daughter, Wednesday mornings are library day with grandma, dishes, laundry, it never ends! I’ve been trying to crochet in between all this stuff. Working on a blanket order and little orders as well. I call it multitasking, but it’s probably procrastinating. Lol.
Tonight there is yogurt on the floor, a ball flying through the living room, a weekend of racing to get ready for, yet all I’m looking forward to is that soft pillow on my bed.
It all makes me smile, no matter how frustrating it can be or how much I fill with anxiety, because I’m a mommy. My kids love me and so does my husband. I couldn’t ask for a better life.
