Next New Goal


Okay so I am officially sick in the head
What am I thinking training for another Marathon
26.2 miles of torture, well that's not true
It's really just the last 6 miles that a true torture.
But here's some reasons why:
1. It's a great way to get into and stay in shape
2. Allows me to eat and not feel too guilty
3. Running is my therapy and heaven know I need it
4. It's a fun way to spend sometime with a good friend who inspires me daily
5. And last but not least...Why Not!!

What shape is your pantry in?


So a couple of weeks ago my RS
asked me to do a class on
an organized and ready to use pantry.
Really me?
Whomever is getting the laugh out of this one
remember what goes around comes around!

So I am looking for pantry pictures...before you went
and got it picture worthy let's be honest, ladies I need
some examples and everyone's will stay unidentified
.
Look here I even posted mine...See need for major improvement!
I do try... but just the other morning I was looking for the kids
Lunch sandwich containers and I finally found then
in the ROUND Tupperware basket.
Letting my frustration fly (Thinking I'm reprimanding the kids)
I loudly proclaimed
"come on people put things where they Go...see there are even labels!"
This is where Ben quietly started laughing saying
what there's labels?
Oh my it's only been that way for YEARS!!

Crazy Hair Day


This is my child that asked me a few
weeks ago if he could have a mullet?
Are you kidding me?

I Quickly buzzed his sides and back,
but left the top a little longer like he likes it.
But today was crazy hair day and we
agreed that I could buzz his sides even shorter and
he could have a true mow hawk
IF after school it all gets cut off.
Nothing like compromising with your 10 year old!

More Walls Lost!!


Ben got an idea and we all know what happens then...
This was our old office, supposed to be the dinning room
we are taking down and making an arch way into the living room.
Ben is having fun being "manly" and learning a lot.

This is the door way into our old guest room
which will now become the office. He took out the door frame and arched it.
Looks good doesn't it.

This is the other wall we took down and made an arch.
It is in the South East end of the Family room and goes into the "new office"
Hoping the drywall and all will get done it the next week or so.
I'm loving it and loving that Ben is Loving it!!
