I have to apologize for not updating this past weekend – we have been too busy!

On Saturday the kids went swimming, then rushed to get their hair done, had professional pictures taken. When we came home we had to get some videos done of the kids for a contest they want to participate in – so now we have to edit the videos and submit – yey! That brought us to late night hours, and it was a busy day!

On Sunday we celebrated Mother’s Day, we mainly relaxed at home, and tried to get as much done as we could. But time flew by quickly, and I wasn’t able to do a lot of blog updating unfortunately. Today is a better day for blogging for me.

My kids gave me the best Mother’s Day gifts yesterday. This is one of them. I was literally showered with gifts. They really spent time on these gifts, and tried very hard to make me smile and be happy. I will try!

I wrote down a plan of action for today, and I have to say that I have accomplished over a half of what was on it! That plan was ambitious, so I am happy with my progress.

I have written a few posts, and got a lot of new cool things going for my blog. I think the blog has been doing quite well today actually, or this is my perception maybe of what is going on, I am not sure. Cannot say the same about my brother. I am concerned about him. He is still in the hospital in Russia, and he has not been doing that well. I hope doctors can put him back together after all of his troubles with his health – that’s the hope! Really, this situation with my brother has been kind of leaning over my days as a shadow, and I just can’t have the same fun and positive emotions as I usually have. I keep wondering what the future has in store for us all, and I should not be doing that, and should just let it resolve itself without my worries as they don’t help.

My children have been putting in a good effort today to helping as well. I found both of the older girls tried hard at what they usually struggle with, and I am sure it will pay off.

I also wanted to take this chance and post some of the pictures. I have one picture of some of the freebies I got recently. I have received Cooking Light magazine and Martha Stewart’s Living, two little pouches and a coupon from Truvia, and Poise paper purse with 4 pads and a coupon. I also put some perfume samples from last week in this picture.

I have more samples that I have got, but I think this will be the subject of tomorrow’s story. 🙂
