Speaking of supplements, I think I may have to have my iron tested again. (I had it tested during my pregnancy with Eliza, and it was above average.) I've been bruising like a peach, and most of the bruises I have no idea where they came from. (Although, if I'm honest, I'm a little more clumsy than the average bear.) Gauging my tiredness level is no help. I'm fairly certain anyone with 4 kids, one of whom eats 1-2 times a night, is tired. I got over my fear of blood draws a long time ago, but I'm still putting this off. Mainly because I have a fear of waiting rooms. Okay, so maybe its not a fear, per se, but a much-deserved dreading. Those labs are always small, busy, filled with old people, half of whom don't like children, and have tons of things that my preschooler and baby shouldn't be playing with but they desperately want to play with.
While I'm on the topic of being tired, I've been trying to run in the mornings before E goes to work (versus in the evening, before bed). Its.....um.....a challenge. E leaves between 5:45 and 6. So, I have to be back from my run between 5:45 and 6. Even with my early risers, that's
Did I ever share back to school pictures? The big kids went back to school last week. They are both loving it (which is such a blessing!)

We're getting back into a routine, which sort of helps every one. I pretty much suck at schedules/routines during the summer. But, yet, we all seem to thrive on one. Maybe next summer, I'll pony up.
