Long time coming...

I have been quite the post slacker recently, but with my new found love of facebook I kinda do my "updates" there.

The biggest thing for me now is the challenge of my work schedule. Honestly, there really isn't any good way to work with my situation. I have basically settled (for now) on working every weekend 12 hour nights and a few evenings a week. The nights are okay, the hardest part is not sleeping on Monday when I come home from work until bedtime that night. I hope I don't go completely insane from poor sleep. I also miss doing the job I used to do, working with young adults. I still work with them occasionally, but it is no where near the degree I used to.

The boys are doing pretty well. Ryan still really stinks at sleeping, and has basically resigned himself to only sleeping in our bed. I am not sure how to break that habit...Isaac does pretty well in his crib, but I occasionally move him to our bed too if he won't go back to sleep in the middle of the night. I had them in our bed initially because they were both up so much in the middle of the night (especially Ryan) where I couldn't imagine being able to sleep any other way.

Claire is in potty training hell (or really I am). She gets the concept of peeing on the potty and will do it when we take her, but will never ask to go. No poop yet. I can't wait till it gets warmer so she can go diaper less in little dresses. The pressure is on since she starts PreK in September (and turns 3 end of August). I hope they don't kick us out!!

This is it for now!!!
