Taste of Spring

Over the weekend we had a wonderful taste of spring. I'm talking, in the 70's short sleeves, MUST be outside.

Saturday we decided to drive by a house in Riverside. It was a junker! But we went to the park and the kids played. The bathrooms were not opened so we walked a few blocks into down town and found a Quick Trip. We headed back a different way and found the Keeper of The Plains. It is a local landmark in Wichita. We always knew it was there but have never been up close and personal. Back at the park the kids played a while longer then we loaded up to go out for dinner.

We ate at Playa Azul in their downtown location. After all that walking the food never tasted so good! Then we walked some more around the Old Town district.

Not wanting to go home just yet, we hung out at Barnes and Noble for an hour or so.Then stopped and picked up some ice cream as a night cap.

Sunday morning we went to church and came home and had lunch. It was another nice day so we loaded up and headed to El Dorado. They have a great walking/biking path that we had been on before but never the whole way. It turned out to be maybe a mile or more. At the end, it wrapped down under a bridge and to another park. The kids had a blast playing. What better way to end the evening then Gambino's Pizza! Again, after all that walking dinner never tasted so good!

Such a great weekend. We cannot wait for real spring and be outside everyday!

I am tired. Not just need more sleep tired. I am tired of everything. Tired of cleaning rooms,clothes,dishes... then 5 minutes later start all over again. I am tired of, gasp! facebook. I am tired of myself. I wake up each morning thinking of all the things I will get done that day. How this will be the day I will get it all done. School, meals, exercise, and have time left over to just ENJOY the boys.

Then I get up, get Brian fed and off to work and read my Bible. The kids start to get up and I do good for a while. Then fussing starts, asking for a snack for the first of a hundred times starts.

School starts and who knows if it will be a good day or not. We average about 1 REALLY good day out of 4. We take Mondays off since Brian is off that day.

I just want a change. I don't know what kind, just a change.

I did change my looks. Brian cut off 6-8 inches of my hair last weekend, at my request. I now have a chin bob and really love it. But I am still restless.

I have been on an emotional roller coaster lately. We thought a big change was coming and then that got shot down. Now we can see God was saving us from serious heartache. I guess I am still not over the disappointment even though God saved us from it. Just the thought of somewhere new and different was so exciting.

No real point to all this blabbering. Just hoping typing it out would help.
