I’ve been really terrible about updating lately, so sorry about that! I have been working on fundraising stuff, writing letters, coming up with a fundraising plan and trying to get the word out about my giveaways. Really, the fundraising thing is taking over my brain because I know that if I fail to raise the 2,400.00, it will come out of my pocket. And until dirty diapers become valid currency, I don’t have much of an income to cover said 2,400.00.
Now, I do have until next January to raise the funds, and as of today, I am over $600.00, so all is not lost. However, I was really hoping to be further along than I am right now. It’s like a scary little obligation that is hanging in the back of my head at all times, and it makes it hard to concentrate on other things, say, like training for a marathon? Let’s just say I’m a little behind on that at well. I definitely have my work cut out for me, but I still know I can do it. It’s just a pretty daunting task. But I knew it was going to be.
The kiddies are doing great, of course. New words everyday. Ben now says “‘otion” just like Lily, and Lily says just about everything:) Last night I heard Cameron saying “mommy” in the middle of the night, over the monitor. I was having trouble falling asleep, so I went to peek in on him, and he appeared to be asleep, so I slowly backed away, closed the door, and again, I hear “mommy”. I just stood outside the door, because I didn’t want to wake everybody up. After a moment of silence, I started to walk away again, and AGAIN, I hear “mommy”. This time, I open the door, and there he is, standing up in his crib, holding out a toy car in his hand. He hands it to me, then promptly flops over back in his crib, rolls over, and goes to sleep without another word.
I guess he wanted me to hold on to it for him? Silly boy:)
I got them some new shoes yesterday, and they are all officially in size 5 shoes! Actually, more like a 4 1/2, but since they don’t make those, it’s a 5.
That’s all the news I have for now. Sad, I know. I need to get a life, don’t I?
