where oh where

Where oh where have I been, not blogging obviously. It has been a crazy couple weeks since the Mr. has been home. We always pack in so much stuff when he is here. Unfortunately our time with him started out with MAJOR allergy issues. I know everyone has been dealing with it, even our our sweet babybird now has it. Slowly we are all coming out of it. But I must say I am oh so tired. Hoping to get on a regular blogging schedule. But for now all the birdies are asleep so I should be too. Night!

Thankful Thursday

It is once again that lovely time of the week when I must sit and think of 5 things I am thankful for. Kind of sad that I have to make myself stop and think about it. I am working on adjusting my attitude to one of thanks. It is so easy to get caught up in others lives and wish for what they had. But we must remember that we only see the surface of things, who knows what lies beneath. So which is a better way of live? Constantly comparing your life to others, overlooking the blessings right in front of you; or realizing what you have is still way better then most of the world and appreciating that it is yours. I think life in general for most people would be happier if they could just be more thankful. Now I will probably have to go back and read this post to myself in a few days when I find myself once again wanting what others have:) But today I am thankful for:
1. Sunshine, it is so lovely and warm. How can you be sad when it shining on you?
2. Allergy meds, my husband is slowly starting to look and sound like himself again, he got it bad this year
3. Left over reese's cup eggs from my girls Easter baskets
4. My chacos, best shoes ever. I have had them for 6 years and they are still so comfy
5. Bug spray, we had 6 wasps in our room the other day. I am not fast enough to get them without the spray.
Your turn:)

Happy Birthday Mom

Happy Birthday Mom! Oh how I wish I could sing to you today. Though I am sure there is much singing where you are. I miss you more than words can express. But I am so thankful for today. Today marks when your life here on earth began and what a life you lived. You carried such a joyful presence every where you went. Countless people were touched by your love, compassion and generosity. You had the gift of hospitality and used it so well. Though disease tried to steal everything it could never touch the love you had for your family and friends. You lived more in 50 years then some people live in 90. Thank you for this example. I will continue to celebrate your life everyday and share it with everyone I see. Your testimony is an amazing story of faith and love. The world just isn't as good without you here. I know I will see you again someday. I love you with all of my heart. (The picture above was taken at the birds birthday party 7 days before mom went home to the Lord)

Thankful Thursdays

Okay so I can't believe I haven't posted in almost a week! I promise to do better in the future. Here is a recap of our week. Mr. Bird flew in (no pun intended) on saturday night. The little birds were super excited to wake up Easter morning to not only candy but their daddy. I was so glad we got to be together on Easter, I am however sad that I have no pictures to show for it:( My camera battery is completely dead and I cannot find the charger anywhere, very frustrating! So for now I won't have many photos for the blog, hopefully the charger will show up soon or I will get my new fancy pants camera (fingers crossed.) We had a great Easter and couple days with the Mr. then he was back on the road finishing up this tour. He should be home in a few days and then will have a nice break before hitting the road again with an awesome band called Need to Breathe.

Big Bird and I have been a bit under the weather the last couple days. I think its mainly allergies, but we have gone through our weight in tissues, not fun. We both seem to be doing better now.

I have decided to start Thankful Thursdays here at Ladybird's love. Each Thursday I will list five things that I am thankful for this week. I think it will be good for me to remind myself weekly of what I have to be thankful for. Whenever I am down or upset my mother-in-law always tells me to play the thankful game, I guess I will be doing it every Thursday now:)
So here is my list for my first installment of Thankful Thursday:
1. Sweet Tea, I am not a big coffee drinker but I love tea. I have had some late nights with my little ones sweet tea has been giving me that extra energy during the day.
2. Tissues with lotion. Like I said we went through a lot of tissues this week but at least our noses aren't chapped.
3. Buddy passes. So my hubby can fly home and see us when he has small breaks.
4. Encouragement. I have been needing some this week and I have received some really kind words.
5. Reading. I am finally getting back into reading and am loving it.

Okay so there is my list. How about you? What are you thankful for this week? Feel free to leave comments I love to see who is stopping by the blog.

Today was a pretty normal day. Ran lots of errands, why are errands always so tiring? I thought I had everything timed out right tonight to be home in time to hear Seabird on "Ghost Whisperer", well I missed it by about 5 minutes. Bummer. Oh well I am glad their song was used on the show and I will just have to get the details of it from the ones who saw it. Did any of you see it?
I am getting pretty excited, in less then 24 hours my Mr. will be home! He really hasn't been gone too long (little less than 2 weeks) but it sure feels like it. I guess I just got so used to having him here over the holidays. But it seems that when the weather starts to get warm that's when they hit the road. I am hoping to take the birds to some of the summer festivals he is playing at this year. Those are always fun for kids, being outside and free to run around. Stopping just long enough to dance to one of daddy's guitar solos:)
I am thinking about starting a series of posts called flashbacks. They will be posts kind of going back and recapping on are adventures as a family and the band up until this point. It has been a crazy ride and still is. Hoping to do the first flashback tomorrow. This was a very random post oh well, good night for now!
