I say every year how I just want to slow down and enjoy the season. It doesn't seem to happy. I think I want it more this year than ever. I don't think we can keep up with this pace. I feel like it's been forever since I last blogged. Blogging is relaxing, it's a fun "out" for me. I don't like when I don't keep up with our every day stuff...that's why I started this journal our life....a way for others/relatives to read and keep up..."Just to Keep in Touch."

With that said...I am going to rewind a bit. Last weekend we headed to IKEA for our monthly business trip. My in-laws joined Mark, my dad, and I. We are kinda "teaching" them the ropes so when I take my so called "maternity leave" they can help out for a month or two. It's always a long day: leave at 5am, drive 5 hours, shop about 6-7 hours, load, then head back home. We make it into a ONE day trip. ;) We were 4 exits from home at about 12:30am and we blew a tire. Ya....not cool. We had passed through construction about 5 miles back and we think that had something to do with the tire. We removed the tire and tried the last little bit with only 1 tire on the passenger side...didn't work. We drove for about 10 seconds. ;( We called lots of company's and even the Police. NO HELP! ARG! Finally we got a hold of a company that would come with 2 new tires and put them on. It was a mess, not to mention it was raining and Mark and I only slept 2 hours the night before. 4am was when all was said and done and we were all home safely. What a trip right!?!?!

Wyatt ended up going home and spending a few days with my parents house. Mark and I made many deliveries and had numerous pick ups for EXPEDITEstl. It was nice to be able to get so much finished but I missed our little buddy so much! When Mark was at school it was a little weird for's like reliving my last pregnancy. Where I was home alone while Mark was at school, pregnant, and trying to get chores finished. Needless to say it put me in a "moods." ;( A sad mood. By Tuesday I decided I was going to go get a mani/pedi by myself and just relax. It never fails...everywhere I go someone talks LOUDLY about twins, has twins, or is a twin. I got to sit next to a PROUD g-ma of 2 yr. old twins. ;( I really was happy for her and smiled on the outside but on the inside...I can't even describe. To put it lightly...I didn't enjoy my time "alone."

It's Wednesday now and we are at my parents. We walked in and Wyatt was screaming from excitement. I LOVE melted my HEART! We are playing here until tomorrow afternoon, seeing family, eating more than we should, and loving just relaxing with everyone! We will head to St. Louis tomorrow afternoon to Mark's family Thanksgiving....a PARTY that NEVER ends!!!
