I need a break

I don't want to complain but I need a break and I am so excited to leave this weekend. We are going to Cardston to see the family and oh right Brittany is getting married!! My goodness she is NOT old enough, she is still my little Britt I guess she did just graduate, and it is gonna be so weird to see her married. I love her and she will make a great wife and someday (hopefully later than sooner) a mom. We leave on Saturday and are going to stay in Okotoks at Riley and Anona's for the night, then Sunday we are finishing some desperately needed shopping in Calgary. We have Kyla done and that is it! Thanks to the lack of shopping up here and me not being able to haul 3 kids around in the freezing cold I don't get anything done without Dustin's help. I keep telling myself, no you can do it, don't be such a wimp. But honestly 3 trips to the car just to get the kids into the vehicle is a lot. Then in and out of every store with a double stroller that feels like a train when I drive it and I seem to run into everything cuz I just can't steer. Thank goodness for my amazing visiting teachers who came today and could clearly see how run down I am. She is going to come and give me a pedicure tomorrow and watch the kids for a couple hours so I can go do some running around. I haven't even got Kyla a dress for the wedding and I reallly am to the point where I don't care what the babies wear. Maybe i'll find something decent in Calgary for them. Anyways I was up and gonna get ready today but I felt discusting and just worn. I got my hair done last night and it didn't quite turn out how I hoped. I went in wanting some brown lowlights and came out with black hair. So everytime I look in the mirror I cry. I feel bad cuz I do love my hairdresser but i've been quite upset about it. As you all know I am very close with my hair especially before family pictures and a wedding! Thankfully it's hopefully gonna get fixed tomorrow. Perfect timing for the wedding i'll say. Just pray for me. But trust me i've been stressed enough about that alone! Then Dustin called and he has to work late tonight and tomorrow....like midnight late. And he already came home at 1am this week. I don't not want him to work cuz we are going on holidays so he is making up for that time, but getting ready for this holiday is a lot by myself. I'm tired.
I'm so excited to see all the family. I wish it could be more relaxed but someone decided to go and make it a Christmas wedding! ;) Last time we were there it was rushed too, so I hope we can have some fun time in all of the chaos. We will be back Sunday the 21st and then the 23rd Dustin's family comes and will stay at our house untl boxing day. We are having Christmas at Jill's this year. Which wasn't the best year for her to decide to host it. She is due with a baby in 4 weeks and has been in the hospital already with contractions. So pretty much she'll just be providing the house and we'll do everything else. Who knows we might have another baby this Christmas! Well I think that's all I want to write about cuz the more I write the more miserable I sound, sorry. I thought i'd just write something for now until we get back and I actually have something exciting to post about. Here are some pics of the girls this week.




I love these little people! They make my days a thousand times happier.

Your girls get more and more cute all the time! I'm sorry you're feeling worn down. I can only imagine. I feel like that I don't even have twins! I wish I could help you out. Have fun with your family! I can't believe your sister is marrying Jeff! I used to hang out with him back in the day. Such a small world...

HOly! You certainly do need a break. That is a LOT to deal with. Thank goodness for Visiting Teachers who do their calling.

Hope you are able to fix your hair the way YOU want it. I know we are the worst critics of our own hair, so I am SURE your hair looks awesome! But, I totally hear you about needing it done the way that makes YOu feel good about it.

In the end, things will come together. Take a deep breath.. Hang in there and just keep looking at those adorable kids you got! They just keep on smiling through it all, don't they. LOL!

Oh Mindy I feel for you! You poor thing. The fact that you haven't collapsed already is amazing! Hopefully you will get lots of help when you go down to see your family, and time to relax. Take care! Wish I were there to help you!

oh my! you dont even feel bad for needing a break! I have one and I feel the same way! I hope your week goes well with the wedding. Just remember that this stage in your life is only temporary. you wont be carting around strollers forever! (thats my personal mantra! lol)

WEIRD!!!

My hat's off to you Min. I'm amazed that you get anything done. Seriously I have a hard time with one baby. I couldn't imagine TWO babies and a toddler.

Keep up the complaining!! I love talking to other moms who are real and don't pretend life is a bowl of blossoms and you love your child every minute of every day! Life is life, its wonderful and childs are fun..But they are alot of busy hard work and Not every day is wonderful...Its good to know that others go through the same things as you! Venting is always good theropy to keep one sane. And before you know it they will be grown up and strollers will be a thing of the past and you wont even realise you stopped using one. And I hear ya on the shopping..I quit hauling kids everywhere after number 4..too much..I remember having 4 cars seats in our van at one time..and going in and out of the house to get them one by one, I hated the cold for that and you have 2 baby seats to carry!!! Now you get to go shopping alone after Dustin gets home....It becomes a nice out of your house time!! ;) And good luck with the hair, sux when you done get what you wanted....**sigh**....Anyway, another novel, I really need to stop doing that, lol....Have fun at the wedding.
