Have you ever had an epiphany and it is not a good one? Well I have. I am not a good friend.  I am extremely self-centered. And Oh, how I hate people like that. I am going to think about what I say before I open my mouth in social situations. I know, I know, I'm 30 and I am just learning this. But hey you cant go from being Aly to Mother Teresa in just one day. It will be a work in progress. And may I say that I have only gotten out of bed before 8am only 1 time! I do love to lay in bed, but not great for my goal!

April 27th

I never would have thought that I would need to teach my 7 year old how to eat and drink. He shovels food into his mouth so fast, that he can't chew with his mouth closed. He tips the cup up until he is almost drowning. I think that this break, will be filled with a lot of at home meals, based upon manners and etiquette.  Beya is now a screamer. Her normal voice is screaming! We will be working on talking nicer and lower. Something that I could probably use too.
Easter was on Sunday. It was a nice day that started with the sugar rush at 8 am. Yeah!!! We went to the park and tried to fly the kite, slightly unsuccessful. We missed the Easter egg hunt on Saturday, due to my laying in bed until too late. We drove up and parked and got almost the way there as the people started to leave and walk toward us. We went back the the car, I then said that I would be getting up at 7 am all the time. Well I am here to tell you, that has happened only once, but I guess that is one time more than previously! I will try everyday, but I really like late night TV and of course studying!! and why is that blasted bed so comfortable?!!
Finals are coming up which is a good sign, because I am DONE!!! It is hard to get motivated, I just want to do nothing.
Yeah the weather is starting to be good. Which means to Beya that everyday is warm. Yeah warm like a high of 50! Not warm. But she "promises" that she will not get cold in a tank and shorts. I do not give in. She also is insistent that the water slides are open! Try to argue that with a headstrong 3 year old.

April 7th

I am swamped with school. And my tendency when I am swamped/overwhelmed is to not start, which as you are thinking only makes this situation worse. Danik is on Spring Break!! Yeah for him, Uggh for me- I really need to do homework! For spring break, we will be having a staycation. Last night we went to Layton surf and swim, fun but some kid pooped in the pool- We left and got Ice cream, yea for happy endings. Today..... not sure, but this house needs to be cleaned and a little fun needs to be had! Along with a litttle (lot) of homework, haha. Happy Spring Break- Next year, we will be doing something FUN.

March 21

Yeah for all being done with Clinicals for this semester! I am loving being home with my kids. We have done lot's of fun things, and a lot of resting.  This week we went to Layton Surf and Swim, Dinner at Nana's house, and a friends birthday party at the Layton Fun Center! I found a super new Cafe blog that I am loving. It is called Mel's Kitchen Cafe. The menu planned itself this week: Chicken noodle soup with cinnamon rolls, sloppy joe's with pineapples/apples, beef stew with rolls, Mac and Cheese with chicken nuggests, Sweet and Sour chicken with baked brown rice! Notice all of the bread's, I love me some carbs.
Beya is obbessed with getting bigger and bossing Danik around.
Danik is wanting to play with friends all the time, and has been a great help around the house.
I am burnt out from school, and need to find some motivation to finish the semester.
Zach is burned out already, and wanting a trip to Moab. Hopefully this can happen this year.

Fun Summer

We have had a great summer. We have gone to the swimming pool a lot. Danik is a great swimmer, meaning he can dog paddle. We have been to the water slides. Beya took dance lessons, learned she likes tumbling a lot more. Danik took tumbling and almost has a cartwheel. We have been to the park, lots of playing with friends, boating. And I attended school, which I did not love or like or really enjoy that much. So why am I doing it?
