Things go bump in the night...

At midnight last night, I woke up suddenly, thinking I heard the curtains move on the window by my bed. I sat up and looked at them for about 10 seconds, then figured I was imagining things and laid back down. A few minutes later I heard breathing and shuffling around. It freaked me out. So I did what any good wife would do and woke up Michael.

Sarah: "Michael! There is someone in the curtains!"

Michael: "What?!"

Sarah: "I'm sure its the kids, but its freaking me out!"

He tried to turn on the lamp next to our bed, it didn't work so he used his cell phone light.
I got out of bed and pulled back the curtains. There was Taylor, just sitting there.

I asked him what he was doing. He just stared at me and gave no answer. I'm pretty sure he was sleepwalking, he does that a lot. Michael took him back up to bed. I couldn't go back to sleep for over an hour. It was just WEIRD.

For all those who are coming to stay with my kids next week while I am in New York- Beware!

I'm going to New York in 6 days!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I just finished "Breaking Dawn". And I loved it! I had hoped to make the book last a little longer since it is 754 pages. But, like the others, I couldn't put it down. Now I am bookless once again. My 2008 page count is now up to 14,109. I am pretty proud of that number since I have hardly any free time to read! Next year, Michael wants me to keep track of how much money I spend on books each year. But I think that will be my little secret. For me, books are a need, not a want. :)

I Demand Sick Days

I feel terrible.

I had a fever half the night. My throat hurts and I am congested.

My ears hurt too.

My body aches.

If I had a regular 9 to 5 job I would totally call in sick today.

Instead I am taking kids to school, making breakfast and cleaning up messes.

I think wives should be allotted at LEAST 3 sick days a year from their husbands jobs. Spread the word.

Life has been busy- But I don't even know what we have been doing! Until I get my act together, here are some pics from our gnarly skate session. Yes, Ashley is wearing her Hannah Montana pajamas- it was almost bedtime. Stay tuned for pics of Ashley's first day of 1st grade! Taylor starts preschool tomorrow!
