Party on

Ultimate Blog Party 2008

I am uncharacteristically late to the party, but at last I have arrived! Loved last year's party and am looking forward to this year's.... just hope I have time to mix and mingle, what with all the goings-on around here. Forgive me if I have to step out for a bit, but I seem to have lost the remote control to life and cannot hit "pause" so that I can relax and enjoy the fun as much as I'd like.

For newbies here, I'll point you to my 100 things post, newly updated. As a quick intro, I'll let you know that I'm a full-time mom to 4 kids ages 7-16, plus 2 dogs, ages 11 months and almost 5 years. The beautiful face looking at you in the header is Rory, our Great Dane puppy. She is mentored by our spazztastic Wire Fox Terrier, Campbell. I've been married nearly 22 years to a great guy who is a nurse anesthetist in the US Air Force. I homeschool our 3 youngest kids, while the oldest is a sophomore at the local Christian high school.

Two big events coming up this week for us:
  1. My 16yo is taking her driver's permit test on Friday.
  2. Opening day for baseball here on base. The boys both have games, thankfully not at the same time (although that will happen a few times later this season).
Grab a Diet Mt. Dew and relax... I'll be back to check on you eventually (unless I fall asleep watching HGTV).

So, how are you tackling this party? Hmmm? IT'S HUGE! This made me crack up " Having babies is easy for me. It's raising them that makes me scream for an epidural." Well, nice meeting you and PARTY ON!

I had to laugh at the title of your blog! :) We have 10 children, mom & dad, 2 dogs, 3 cats, and whatever else furry ends up too. And we too homeschool! We have just over 2000 sq. ft! :)

It's nice "meeting" you through the party! I am giving lots of books away on my blog so come on over. There's still time to sign up for each day's books of this week! :)

Hi, I just love your header, what a sweet pup (and very good catch with the camera)!

Have fun at the blog party! :)
