I'm so bloomin' sore...

I feel like someone has beat me with a rubber hose…


But so much was accomplished this weekend. I’ve got to finish cleaning the living room mess up, then I can move on to the next challenge. Stupid bag of meat spilled, just the juices mind you, but they kind of stink. Ugh.


I made Peanut Butter Fudge Brownies today, YUM! I was so bad, too much chocolate!


I also am declaring my love of Baked Potatoes! For those that do not know, I’m a Flexitarian. This means, 80% of the meals you see me eat, will be Vegetarian (the one that eats eggs, and uses dairy products). Baked Potatoes make my tummy super happy, especially when paired with Romaine lettuce! YUM! My brother seemed a little grumpy that I didn’t get any meat, but this is the choice I’ve made, I’m losing weight with it, and learning to make healthier choices.


Tori is also doing very well with her potty training! Go Tori! Go Tori! Only one accident today, so that’s good!

So far so good...

It is my weekend after all…


I have finished painting the Living Room and re-hung the cord to the Satellite.


My list is working down, and it should move quicker now that the biggest problem and hold up is out of the way. The painting was so hard! I am so not doing this for awhile. Seriously! I need to Re-paint Tori and Ian’s Rooms (and do the same thing I did with the hallway by adding a metal plate under the Plaster stuff where the knob hits the door.


So I can just be for awhile, because I am happy the paint is on. I’m fixing the Picture frames and putting my babies on display again. It’s starting to feel like a home for me. My home, my family, my life. It’s a beautiful thought.


The To-Do List:

-         Finish Painting The Wall

-         Move all laundry into the corner of the kitchen

-         Complete all of the laundry and put it up as it comes out

-         Dishes

-         Clean and Organize Tori and Ian’s Rooms

-         Potty Training

-         Clean and Organize all Cabinets

-         Work on a Menu for the next two weeks

-         Clean our Room

-         Clean our Bathroom

-         Grocery Shopping

-         Bathe Kittens and Momma

-         Mow Lawn

-         Move Items in the Front Yard to Back Yard

Life may be full of them, but let’s face it… I don’t like them.


It seems any time you have to make a decision, someone always get’s pissed or hurt. While some realize, hey it’s your call, they also know what they believe should happen and should control the result.


At this point in my life, I’m finding that I’m faced with a lot of decisions that I don’t know if I’m really ready for. At some point, I’m going to work on this thought process and say, hey, I’m mom. I can do it.


It’s facing the future after the decision. I hate not seeing the whole map, just driving behind the wheel. That uncertainty scares me. You want to know you are making the right decision, but at the same time, you want to move on from here to the next challenge.


Here’s to decisions – the bane of my adult life.

It's almost 10 p.m....

And no, I don’t turn into a pumpkin…


So today I had an interesting counseling session with our marital counselor. It’s given me a lot of things to think about, and I really need to think on them. At this point all I’m interested in though is chocolate (which I happen to have hidden in my purse), ‘An Officer and a Gentleman’, and a little me time.


I am thinking about all I am going to accomplish this weekend. So here is my list of the weekend’s activities:

Ø Finish painting the wall

Ø Move all the laundry into the corner of the kitchen

Ø Complete all the laundry and put it up as it comes out of the dryer

Ø Dishes

Ø Clean and organize Tori and Ian’s rooms

Ø Potty Training

Ø Clean and organize all of our cabinets

Ø Work on a menu for the next two weeks

Ø Clean our room

Ø Clean our bathroom

Ø Grocery Shopping – Milk, Eggs, Bread, Dog food, Cat food, Kitty Litter, 2 frames =< 11” x 18”

Ø Bathe the kittens and Momma

Ø Mow lawn, Move things to back yard


What a labor day weekend. Three days to just organize and enjoy things. So we’ll see how things go.
