Ahh, the "TO DO" list

Well, it is Thursday of Spring Break and I find myself wondering "Where did the week go?"  I had all these grand plans of fun activities to do with the kids, and I haven't done any of them.  We did take the older 3 to see October Baby on Tuesday evening.  We dropped the youngest two at my mom's (THANKS, MOM!) and ventured over to Rico's World Kitchen....afterall, KIDS EAT FREE on Tuesday.  Some of the yummiest nibbling I've done in a while, and their sangria was divine!
The movie was good; a tear jerker for sure--take a hankie or two...or a whole box.
Now, I'm faced with 3 days to squeeze in a week's worth of fun, purchase Easter outfits, stock up on groceries for the next week and continue to whittle down my laundry pile-- fun times!
Wish me luck. :o)

Well, I've said for a long time that I wanted to do a blog and, well, here goes nothing!  My hope is that by journaling my crazy days-- the good, the bad and the ugly-- somehow the bad and ugly will be filtered  leaving only lessons learned and the good will be stored in my memory to recall years down the road, at family gatherings, late night phone calls and the like.
As an introduction- I am Christy, I'm married to Derek (for almost 16 years) and we have 5 kids- Ethan (13), Abigail (9), Bridgid (7), Katie (4) and Nate (2).  I am the Office Manager for the classical school my husband and close friend began back in 2006: Dominion Classical Christian Academy.  I have recently started working out again after taking a 5 year hiatus from being a group fitness instructor and full time baby making machine.
I am a Christian and love Jesus with all my heart, desiring to help guide my kids into a deep relationship with Him, and understanding that EVERYTHING we have, know and do revolves around Christ our Foundation.
I love my Husband; I love my family; I love my PEEPS/BUENA TATS/FRIENDS (without whom I would be curled up into the fetal position unable to face life <insert WINKY>); I love tennis (although I just had to quit my Ladies and Mixed teams due to too many commitments); I ooze that sickening cheerleader disposition-- I can't help it-- it is ingrained; I enjoy being a wanna be foodie; I HATE LAUNDRY and the endless job it is-- you know, 'cause we can't walk around naked!
So, I guess that is me in a nutshell.  3.....2......1.....LIFTOFF-- Here we go--just a peek into this One Glorious Cacophony!
