Big Decisions

We've decided that we need to cut out some activities in our lives...we are running ourselves ragged with all the activities that the kids are ing. So for an 8 year old, the biggest decision in her life right now is whether she wants to continue to sing in the chorale, take a ballet class or play select travel soccer. And Kenzie, with all her 8 year old wisdom, knew exactly what she wanted to do and never waivered from it. She definitely wants to stay in chorale, that's number 1 one her priority list and she also wants to take ballet, although that's proving to be a challenge as it's the same night as chorale and starts the same time that chorale is over and there's 20 minutes driving time in between. Hmm not sure how to work that out but we'll see. So that leaves cutting out travel soccer. And with the decision to no longer participate in travel soccer came the responsibility of telling that to her coach tonight. She did an admiral job of it and her coach told her that she will always have a place on the team if she decides she wants to play again. How awesome is that? We might be replacing one travel sport for another, though, as we got a call from a travel softball coach that we had inquired with a couple of months ago. He called to tell us about tryouts this weekend which we had seen an ad in the paper for but we had already decided that Kenzie wouldn't be able to join this year because she's not healed from her broken collarbone. The coach said not to worry about that at all and that he'd call back in a couple of weeks to check on her and see about getting her on the team. He also said she was more than welcome to come to the tryouts this weekend to meet him and some of the other players so we might take a run down there. So while we are trying to simplify things, I'm not sure it's going to work out that way in her case. Although this will take the play of her spring baseball so maybe it all evens out.

On a different note, I talked to the drs office today about the results of my glucose test and found out that I passed. Yay! So maybe that means I'll only have a little 9 pounder this time. LOL I'm not sure what I've done but I've been in a lot of pain today. Been having a hard time walking as my left hip is hurting and I also got a pain around my left shoulder blade. Feels like something is getting pinched as my left arms keeps going numb or gets that falling asleep feeling so I have to keep moving it around. I'm hoping I just slept in a weird position as things feel really tight and I'm hoping things will work themselves out overnight. That is assuming that I can get to sleep. I haven't been sleeping well the past couple of nights. *sigh* On a good note from work...I finally finished the ugly reports that I've been making revisions to since April. Emailed the last of the changes today so I'm hoping that we might be ready to release them. Of course, it's now time to update them through the current year so I'm not going to get a break from them at all. :(

Kid's activities are endless, aren't they? We are very involved in choir and ballet, with the prospect of Girl Guides looming around the corner. I'm exhausted thinking about it!

Every baby seems to take just a little more out of the body. (I don't mean that to be a joke.)

As for activities, I've heard where parents limit them to just one per child. I never found that as easy as my husband did. He has been a big help as to eliminating extra "stuff".
