Things I love

Some of the things I love about this stage of life
  • Listening to the girls in the car, and acting like a dork for their entertainment
  • Jamming out to music in the car
  • No longer being told, by my son, to turn down the music it is giving him a headache
  • Friends I can vent to and they think no less of me (Love ya Kristy)
  • More time at night with my hubby
  • Going on a date and leaving kids (not Having to get a babysitter)
  • Becoming a Great Aunt (as fun as being an aunt, but officially great)
  • Independent kids (double edge sword there)
  • Swim team
  • Time for a little more crafting
  • Book Club
  • Girls Night Out (to far between)
  • Craft day with the sisters, and not getting anything accomplished but fun

I think I could go on and on, but there are a few off the top of my head

Love is in the air

I have been making these albums for my sis. They are so cute, in my opinion, I just want to keep them. They have been fun to make and a bit challenging on those less then creative days. They are for her girls to fill in with pictures and journaling of things they love. I can't wait to see them done. If you want to see more pics of these cute albums check out my scarycute blog.

A week off

It has basically been a fun week for the kids. No school Monday, delay Tuesday, delay Wednesday, cancelled Thursday, cancelled Friday. I don't look forward to making it up, but I have to admit, it was nice to have a slow week. I have not accomplished much, haven't left the house much, but weeks like these don't come often in Farmington. At least not since I was younger. I am also surprised at how little the kids want to go out in the snow. I think we lived in it. I'm not complaining, the little they have has made a wreck of the house, but they have had fun making a Winter Wonderland in the backyard.

Spare Time?!?!???

My spare time seems to be limited these days. Do I remember what that is? I have too many things to get done, and don't want to. I have made time to get ready for my niece's baby shower. These are the invitations I am working on. Scott says I'm cray to be doing these, but I have been wanting to make them for awhile. I bought premade card and envelopes to make the job easier. I did emboss the circle paper myself, but it is worth it. I think they are too cute. I also love the foot print stamp. I also have been making a quilt, working on some word book for my sis and am starting to sew some hooter hiders.

What I have learned in the last week

-I can live without DP and it does get easier (I don't think about it every second)
-Noah would rather me drink caffeine,, I am nicer
-I am glad I have never been addicted to anything stronger then DP
-It hurts to start working out again, why do I stop
-I have no brain, mind or anything going on upstairs (not really new, just re confirmed)
-Why do I keep adding things to my life to make myself more crazy, I don't need the help
-I am exhausted today

Not myself

Well I have been extra lazy and just not myself this week. It is not after holiday blues. I have all these grand plans of deep cleaning my house, getting better organized, finish painting and the list goes on and on. Instead I do what HAS to be done and am happy with that. The reason why is Monday I said farewell, for now, to my beloved Dr. Pepper. I had tried quiting a few months back and made it almost 4 days and said forget it. I am on day five today and am doing slightly better this time. I have only had one migraine and one constant headache. On Tuesday Mikael was over, the night of my migraine, and I was trying to convince her to have a DP with me. We laughed and talked about the serious problem I have, I know I do that is why I am giving the best drink ever up. We love the show intervention and talked about getting me help and went through the "intervention" part of the show. It was great to hear Mooches reasoning as to why DP has effected her and my life in a negative way. I haven't said much to anyone about quiting, because my track record is not so great, but today I feel recommitted. Eventually it will be a special treat now and then, but not for awhile. All I have to say is I better loose some weight giving up pop, and hopefully soon I will be over the headaches and back to working on all my grand ideas (and getting burnt out a day or two into to it). And that is why I am not myself lately.
