Ladies day out...

I had a chance to go out today with some of my friends. We had a great time with many laughs. We started by meeting at the salon where we had our hair done. After that, we had an enjoyable Mexican lunch. We also went to an auction. I've never been to one before so you know me, I sat there stiff as a board and made sure I didn't move a muscle or say anything as I did not want to make an accidental bid! It was fun and I'd love to go again. I just can't believe the "stuff" people bid on! We then took a drive out to the beach to catch a beautiful sunset (yes, it was in the 80's today) and then finished off the evening with dinner. I had a great time and can't wait to go out again!

Time to take off the training wheels... I think.

"Now how do I do this?""...and then what?"

"Ok, Dad, give me back my bike!"

Under the sink....

I was inspired tonight to clean under my kitchen sink. Why? You ask. Well, it may have something to do with the fact that I hate not being able to find anything or perhaps it had to do with me having a new organizer to shove under my sink. Possibly a bit of both. So, here in all my embarrassment are before and after pics. Maybe you're inspired now to eh?

Spring Wreath

Today I went to Mike's cousin's house to make a spring wreath for my front door. Debbie (Mike's cousin's wife) is very good at making wreaths and pretty much making anything for that matter. I think she's got blood lines with Martha Stewart some how. Me? Well, I'm good with receiving a live bunch of flowers but that's about it. I'll admit, she did most of the work on the wreaths! I pretty much went shopping with her to pick out my ribbon and flowers and helped her (just a little) with placement. Oh wait... I also cut the stems off the flowers - lets not omit any of my artistic work! She did the bows and handled the glue gun - much too dangerous for me! LOL Anyway, now I have a pretty wreath to welcome us home!

April Fools Day...

Jennah had to ride the bus this morning because Kaylee had an early appointment today that I would not have been able to meet if I had to drive to the school. So, this morning on the way to the bus stop, I was trying to explain to Jennah that today was April Fools Day and some of her classmates may try to trick her and play jokes. She acted like she didn't quite get why they would do this so after many explanations, I let it go and off she went to school. Now the funny part... I'm sitting at the table this afternoon going through the junk mail when Jennah walks up to me and says in a VERY serious tone: "Mom, I'm pregnant." followed a few seconds later by the phrase "April Fools!" I cracked up laughing. It was so funny to me that she was trying her best to pull off an April Fools joke yet she still doesn't quite get how it's done. I'm still chuckling but then I get these horrible thoughts in my head like "what if she wasn't joking". I know she's only 6 but in a few years, that joke is not going to be funny! ...... UGH!

Maybe it's jut me but I always know there's trouble when Jennah yells "MMMOMMM". I was watching some tv this afternoon when I hear the s.o.s. coming from Kaylee's room where the girls were playing. So, I say "What Jennah". She replies "Kaylee has a stink." I kind of chuckle because the phrase 'has a stink' seems funny to me. So I go in to Kaylee's room and it hits me - I mean REALLY HITS ME! Phew... boy does she ever "have a stink". In fact, "has a stink" is not the phrase I would have used. It should have been more like "Mom, a bomb went off in Kaylee's diaper!" Needless to say, I quickly undressed her and plopped her in the tub. After that, a quick load of laundry was rushed to the machine - including her sneakers and then the room was wiped down and sprayed! Ahhhhh, who said I don't work!

Monday Monday...

I took the girls to school this morning and came home to jump back into Kaylee's room for more "weeding out" of toys and clothing that she doesn't use or doesn't fit any longer. I'm about done with her room - yea! Tomorrow, I'll start on Jennah's room - oh boy! Anyway, I'm making progress...slowly but hey, at least I feel better about being able to actually see the flooring in their rooms!

Well, we finally had some rain last night which made it very nice for sleeping! We didn't do much today but sit around the house in our pj's all day and play video games... yep, even I got in on some games! Of course, I'm not good at it at all but hey, it was a family ordeal and I was not going to be left out! Anyway, here's a pic of the girls playing a racing game. I just love that Jennah still has her eye mask on her head! We're so bumming it today!
