BABY OF MINE

About three weeks ago Ronnie bought out his partners half of the landscaping company. Now we are the sole owners of Supercuts Landscaping. Along with that I have become the sole accountant for a 25 employee company which entails a lot of hours in the office on the computer. In my defense though, it really wasn't that late. It was only 7:30pm and I was trying to get her to hold out until 8:00pm so she wouldn't wake up a few hours later or wake up super early in the morning. When Ronnie and I turned around from the computer to find her passed out on her saucer and milk dripping down her face it made me feel SOooo guilty. Partly because I feel like this is the result of a stressful couple of weeks and I think everybody in our house feels the way Jaylee looks. Lately I find myself wishing for more hours in the day to spend QUALITY time with my kids and my hubby(who is ALWAYS working). If only....

oh, how cute and sad she fell asleep like that, she must have been so tired! hope the business is going well so far, i figured you were the one doing the office work, or at least helping with it.
i cant wait till i get to stay home and be the accountant for scotts business, although i am sure it can be stressful at times!

Aleia, I am such a BAD neighbor & V.T. I'm so sorry!! Bring the girls over to play so you can get some things done. Jake would love it! I promise he is not as wild as he seems :)I have school tomorrow, but I'm available Friday. Let me know if you need anything, seriously-I'm sure you are stressed out! You should talk to Heather she does all the office work for Jared, maybe she could help in that area.

Oh & Jake loves that song Baby of Mine.. he asks me to sing it to him at night. The problem is I have never really known all the words.. only the little portion they have on Dumbo previews. I'll have to play it for him. So cute!

Sweet Baby Girl! You and Ronnie have such cute daughters! That is a sad picture...I always feel bad when Bentley is so tired like that. That is funny that you are the accountant for Ronnie's company, because that is my job for Jason's company! Good thing for wives...we keep the money, and everything else for that matter in line :)I hope things slow down for you soon...let me know if you want me to bring dinner to your anything.

Oh, little Jay-bird! Sorry, I know how you feel. And the sad thing is...I feel like we are STILL putting hours and hours in, just like when he started. Hopefully it gets better! Good Luck!

Hi, Aleia,
Just thought I would pop in and see what you guys are up to. It sounds like you are staying really busy! Jaylee is such a beautiful baby!!

Oh ALEIA! I totally understand. it is so hard sometimes making changes, and getting life "situated" all while being a maid, cook, mother, wife, friend, daughter, acountant, doctor, ext. That is so awsome that the buisness is solely yours now. What a great opportunity. Good Luck! That picture is sooooo cute of her!!!

Bo Brooke Jer & Ky said...

Hey Aleia! Bo and I were looking at Ronnies Buisness blog. That is sooooo nice of him to put up the insurance as a refferal. Would you mind If I put up his on ours? It's so great we can all network together. Ps You Britt and I and the hubbies need to do a triple date!!!!

Hi Brooke,
Ronnie wouldn't mind at all if you added his blog to your links:) I would really like to get together, lets try and pin our husbands down to help us plan it.

The Martin Family said...

oh my goodness! One: she is sooo cute, and two: I feel like I have not seen Jesse all summer with his CRAZY summer work schedule, let alone quality times together. And now that hunting season is right around the corner... we both know what that means... :(

THE MICHAEL FAMILY said...

Hi Ketsy,
good to hear from you!

Connie said...

Good Luck or should I say God Bless you in your business. Luck is used too much. For everyone to balance your life between work, family, church ect. is hard sometimes but it can be done.

The Martin Family said...
