OK, I have to vent a little!!!

I never do this...but jessica does it all the time so I had to try it to see if it makes me feel better!!!!

1. I feel so scattered this week, I have finally moved all my computer/papers/stuff to the studio to have a more structured working enviroment for Clay and myself as well, and I am just having a hard time getting used to it. I am all about hands on all the time, 24/7, answering emails in the wee hours of the night, editing images at all hours of the day...anything to keep everyone happy...but that tends to lead to a worn out Amy which leads to an unhappy David & babies. Clay is working so hard and getting so much done for me...but I always have so much more...I am feeling overwhelmed and wondering when I am going to find a happy medium! My only motivation...I LOVE what I do and LOVE my family so I have to make it work!!!!

2. We keep talking about building a new house, but things keep getting in the way!! Like cars breaking down, lay offs in Davids company (he is OK so keep your fingers crossed), the economy, etc... We have even found a model we love but we can't decide where to build...Castle Hills (Gorgeous neighborhood & only 2 miles away from our current home) or Frisco (great area, $35,000 cheaper for the SAME home but 30 more minutes away from everything!). I lived in far away Rockwall for most of my life so I don't want to be too far from the big city ever...I don't know what we should do...and I love being so close to my studio right now!

3. Laundry, laundry, laundry...yes I know I stole this one from Jessica, but she has no idea about the pile in my closet all the time! I have figured out that anything that is a never ending cycle I don't do well with! For example: DISHES - your get them dirty, you clean them then you get them dirty again...its never ending! LAUNDRY - You must continue to wear clothes so you are constantly getting them dirty and cleaning them...its never ending! CLEANING HOUSE - you clean it and get it dirty again...over and over...its never ending!! I like to see that things have an end...because then and only then do I feel accomplished. I am AWESOME at ToDo lists...because you can check things off and never have to look at it again!! I am a crazy todo list person...I remake my list about 3 or 4 times because it has to be a clean list in order for me to be excited about marking things off! I know I am weird!!

OK, everything major is out for now...I will see if this helps or just releases my problems for the world to see!

Lets end on a cute note...what you all have been waiting for...my little Lauren in her ballet class...keep in mind I have to shoot through a window so I can't get too close...don't worry she will have her recital in June and I will get lots of close up!!!

Very disappointed :(

I tried posting a photo from my phone and it had a bunch of junkity junk around it!! Whatever, I tried...I wish it looked better because now I have to download the photos from my phone to put them on here...and you know that will take forever for me to do!! Hey I tried!

Lets see if this works...here is Lauren in ballet...can yo tell she loves it!

You have got to be kidding!!

New Kids on the Block are back!! Is this a joke? Is it just me or does my old time favorite one, Donnie, not look as cute anymore, and really doesn't look into that girl his is with in the video!! Check it out!

PS: I just got a really cool INSTINCT phone, so now I can post and even publish photos to my blog on the go...hopefully this will help me be better about posting...because I know I should be in Jessica's time out, but she wouldn't dare put her favorite sister there...right Jessica!! :)
