Not in the Mood~

To work today! It started out ok but now I'm ready to go! I really like my job and it is laid back but today is on my last nerve. The boys need to chill out, take some valium or something. I'm having hectic nights trying to potty train Nate so I don't need hectic days too. Which by the way is going so so! I tried to put Lucky Charms in the toilet the other night to get him to pee on them (kind of like CHerrios) and he wasn't impressed. I can remember doing it with Chase and trying to get him to aim at him and it went well but wouldn't you know with Nate he said, "No MOM! Eat them!" So he flushed them. If anyone has any suggestions I am all for them. I got enrolled at Butler for my class. It is Digital Graphics with Photoshop. Then I will be the digital master! I can't wait for the class to start. I just need to pick up my books now. I am also thinking about getting my Microsoft Certification. That one is going to be harder. Something I am trying to decide if I really want to do or not! Anyways...have a great Wednesday!

Happy Whatever!!!

Do you all see my little fairy to the left. I love her. And my new fairy name. Quite a bit happening this weekend. Tomorrow morning we are taking the kids to see a movie. Then Saturday night our church is hosting a Luau. That should be fun. I need to make stuff to take and Tori and I have our toes painted a beautiful orange with white flowers and we have bought grass skirts. Sunday I teach Childrens Church and somewhere in all that mix I need to find time to clean some house. Anyway...hope you all have a wonderful weekend!!

I think I was wishing we were going to skip the HOT weather this year! Because lets be honest, besides the rain it really hasn't been that bad of a summer. I don't think anyway! But this week is going to be ridiculous. Thank goodness the ball games are over and I don't have to be in the heat! I did learn a little about myself this weekend. #1- I am way out of shape! I don't think I could be anymore sore than I am from helping SummerTime move. I went to the chiropractor this afternoon and man my back was tight. #2- That whole statement "Sweatin' like a pig!!" me. I'm sure it looked like I was peeing my pants because oh my god was I wet with sweat! I am a pee ALL THE TIME kind of girl since I had surgery but I think I only went once on Saturday and I was drinking water ALL DAY! I sweated it all out. I know, I know TMI! So I have about 10 days of nothing to do! Not actually nothing to do but ball is over, no practices, nowhere that I know of that I have to be! But then soccer will start and we'll go again! At least those games are only on Saturday mornings. Not all the nights of the week. So we usually go from hot to cold. Way hot for ball and then humid/hot at the beginning of the season and cold by the time the season ends in October. So since I am rambling I will say ta ta for now! Have a great week!

We are the CHAMPIONS!!


Pro-Kleen #1 in League & #1 in Tournament

Our girls won the whole enchilada. Winning every night this last week. We played 20 games total in league and in tourney and won all of them. UNDEFEATED!! The girls did such a good job and I can really see an improvement in Tori this year! She is hitting the ball all the time. She is front row, bottom left just in case you didn't know. Anyway, so our busy busy week paid off. We now have two whole weeks until Soccer starts and then it will be time to start all over again. Except, Soccer is on Saturday mornings. But practice is during the week. But of course we have several things going on in between. Hope everyone has a great weekend. BTW...


Hope you have a great great birthday. You deserve it!

Big Blue Sky

I love being able to look out and up and see nothing but blue sky for miles and miles. Makes me want to be outside doing something with the kiddos! Not cooped up inside WORKING! Summertime came over on Saturday and re-vamped my scrapbook area! SO needed it. Can't even explain. I naturally got those "why do you have this much crap" look alot! BUT...totally worth it! So maybe now I can scrapbook. I am trying to scrapbook using all of my current stuff without really buying new. Cause trust me...I could scrapbook ALOT with out buying! I so don't even know what I have anymore. We play ball everynight this week. It's League Tournament so here it goes. Tonight at 6 so I am sure it will be super hot. The rest of the week we play at 7:00. If we win every night! So have a great week. I'm sure I will be busy. Games and fast food. Who could ask for more? not really!!

What a Weekend

What a FANTABULOUS weekend. Rick being home just made it perfect. Thursday we went out to Santa Fe lake and watched the fireworks. My little family climbed into the back of my car and opened the window on the hatch and watched. It was soooo nice to be together. On Friday we were just at the house. I made a pretty good dinner if I do say so myself. Everyone was quite impressed I think. Kindof like a crab boil where the food is just thrown onto the table and everyone picks from it what they want to eat! Then outside for the fireworks. Tori & Rick set off tons of fireworks and Nate loved watching all of them. I had made some water balloons for him so that he would be occupied. He would throw them and they wouldn't pop. They would roll down the driveway and some of them even rolled down the street before they would finally pop. Too funny. It was great though! Sounds like you all had a great time as well. Just another busy week of ballgames! We played last night but with this wonderful rain I'm thinking tonights game may be cancelled. Later!

I can't wait for the weekend! I am so excited for the 4th of July. I love all the pretty lights and cooking out! Rick is home this year too so that will be fun. He has worked on the 4th for the last 5 years. So when you see the dads out in the cul-de-sac with their kids shooting fireworks, that's me! Anyway's, Tori plays ball tonight (if it's not raining), tomorrow hangin' out, Saturday a funeral, Sunday I teach children's church and then the week will start all over again! It's a never ending revolving cycle! Hope everyone has a great holiday! Fun and safe! Everyone come back with all their fingers so when I am reading your blog I don't have to try and make out words because you blew off your finger and can't type! HEE HEE!!!
