I guess it comes with the territory of being a mom. I constantly feel like I'm not doing enough. My house isn't ever clean enough. The dogs aren't taken care of as good as they should be. I'm not as patient as I should be when doing 4th grade homework with Kamden. I can't volunteer as much as I would like at the school. Kendall gets loads of therapies, but I feel like I'm not trying enough new stuff. I don't return e-mails like I should. I don't return calls like I should. I feel like I start a lot of things, but don't finish anything...not to metion my tivo'd shows are at an all time max!

And I actually really do feel on most days that I have pretty good balance of things in my life... I just need more hours in the day!

So, the past week got away from me. Justin traveled quite a bit last week, so I was on my own....(probably why I'm so behind on everything!) We had a wonderful weekend with friends, and Kam had a great first week of school.

Kendall had and eye appointment Monday. We are going to possibly start her in contacts. Her glasses are just too huge. She'll still have to wear lenses, but they could potentially be much smaller. Everything looks great with her eyes. We're still watching her right eye for higher than average pressures.

We dropped the ratio yesterday. So far so good. She's been pretty cranky and not sleeping very well. I feel like she may be coming down with something, or its just allergies because my house is so dusty!

We are going to be starting Kendall on the insulin pump soon. Due to the fact that she is such a "complicated" type 1 diabetic...she will have to be hospitalized for 5 days to figure it out. I REALLY was trying to avoid going right in the middle of flu season.

We dont have a whole lot going on right now, and it's pretty nice! Hopefully things can continue just like they are :)

I feel the exact same way, except that I just get so tired... WOW on the contacts! That sounds great. Sorry about the hospital stay, I know how those are. Looks like we are going to try the Ketogenic Diet with Lizzy but since she has milk sensitivity then we have to do the MTC oil diet instead of the classic one... oh boy. Still yet to have a start date. Hope you have a nice weekend.
