10 Reasons Why I Need a Free Weekend Get-away!

It’s been 8 months since I’ve had a night without a kid in arm’s reach. I’ve had construction going on for 3 months. Half of the time of the construction,...

10 Things I’ve Figured Out.

The person who coined with the phrase “sleep like a baby” didn’t have kids and/or was a complete idiot. Boys like peeing everywhere…on walls outside, in mud puddles, on bugs, in buckets, in the bathtub… Matchbox vehicles somehow reproduce at night. It’s amazing how moms can do so much and get so little rest. Especially when one kid gets sick right after another gets...

Yesterday I ended up taking the boys to the dr…ds1 has croup. Dean’s illness is just a passing virus every other kid has. Kids shouldn’t have to get sick! My bday dinner was good…I made honey-orange duck and broccoli and potatoes with cheese sauce and a cake, of course. Dh got me a Wii Fit!! I’m stoked…can’t wait to get it up and running....

Yay Me! and a Tag.

Today’s my birthday! Yay me 😀 How old am I? I’m 30. Yep, the big 3-0. No more 20’s. I’m on my way now to 40! Terrifying thought 😉 Dad to Two tagged me with  Random Things, and I figured today would be a good day to do it. He had 2 given to him, a 7 and an 8. I’m gonna stick to...

Living Room Pics

Here’s the before and after! The wood on the wall to the left is where the hall to the addition is. Of course, this is what was under the wood paneling and ceiling tiles. The space behind the couches was where 2 windows were (where the addition is now). Left wall is opposite to previous shot. Here’s the after! Wall opposite to previous shot....

I’m back finally!! The past couple weeks we’ve been living on beanbags in the kitchen 😀 It’s been interesting to say the least. Our living room is now finished and we’ve only got one more week for the addition. I SOOO love it! I’m sorry for ignoring drops and awards and promise I’ll get to them soon. When I logged into my email earlier,...

Empty Livingroom

I’ll be taking a short break from the computer. The drywall is coming in today and will be put up tomorrow. The living room is completely torn apart and my computer will be dismantled for a few days.

2nd Post for Tuesday!

I forgot to mention…today is my dd’s 11th birthday!! She was induced 3 weeks early due to complications. I had gone into the hospital for ultrasound and they said, Ok, this baby is coming out today! I called into work and told my boss I wouldn’t be in that night to do inventory. He was not happy until I told  him what was going...
