Just a day to myself

Hey guys, yesterday I started my blog about my busy life and here I am today bored out of my mind. Kind of ironic right. So I’m sitting here thinking is my life really that busy, do I make my boys think they are to much of a hassle, do I spend enough time in prayer. Then answer is I probably do make my children feel like a burden at times and no I don’t spend enough time in prayer or make time for my husband.

Prayer should be a big part of my life and I don’t do it nearly enough. So am I teaching my boys to be the best they can? I can only hope I am not failing as a parent. I’m sure we all feel this way once and awhile but, as I sit here by myself and am jut thinking about everything under the sun. Life really does move to fast, and why not embrace it. I really think I need to just slow down and enjoy my boys while they are still at home.

So the whole reason I decided to return to school is because I want them to see me succeed at school and make a good career in hopes that they will do the same. But, again as I am sitting here today just contemplating how blessed of a life I really do have, I’m thinking have I been the best mom or wife that I can be and the answer is no, I can always do better. There is always someone that does it better, but my kids come home to a house with electricity every day, there’s always food to eat and all the bills are paid. I just don’t thank Jesus enough for blessing me so fruitfully.

Intro to my crazy life

Hey guys, I am Robyn and I live in a small town in Oklahoma. I really have never been a writer but I figured I would try out this blogging thing. So I graduated back in 2002 and I had my first son that year as well, he is now 15 almost 16, we are working on getting a permit currently ahhh… He really is growing up way too fast. I got married to my husband in 2004 and a year later we had another wonderful boy who is now 13 and loves sports. Then in 2008 we had another boy and he is now 10 and loves school.

So starting out fresh out of high school, I worked at our local Sonic and my parents took me to the casino one day and I had fun “I guess”, I lost my money so not that much fun. While I was at the casino I saw the tip jars full of money and that was it I wanted to work there, I applied and got a job. I worked there for 2 years and then a small loan company for about a year(I did not like this job).  I then got a really good job at a WIC office which I loved working at, there is just something about helping people that warms your heart. Not to mention all the cute babies you get to see on the daily. I worked there for about 8 years and that brings us up to now.

So I started school in June and took 1 class and that went really well. So now it is the fall semester and I am feeling on top of the world so why not enroll in 4 classes right… This is on top of all my duties at home, laundry, cooking, cleaning ect. Oh yes and our youth group at our church is planning a pilgrimage to Rome.  So then we add on the fundraising, football games and practices, our 15 year old is also a carhop at the sonic so he needs a ride to and from work. So that is just an intro to my busy life.
