I told you earlier that we worked out at the land this weekend. It goes by so much faster when we have the boys and we can be slavedrivers and make them work too! But this weekend we were blessed with more people helping! We had the boys, my mom, my aunt, uncle and even Kerris boyfriend Mike. I don't remember how many trees we ended up cutting down, but I know that it was a bunch!
Here is an old friend of mine, Kitsie, Vicky my aunt, and Pat, my mom.... Now, it looks like we are doing nothing...but actually we were just on a break...well, with the exception of Kitsie...you can tell she didn't come to work cause she has on white shoes!!! Needless to say they were not white when she left our place!
Ok, here is me in my snakeboots... now one would ask why on earth is she wearing her snake boots when they are not even out this time of year? Well, for several reasons...1) I do not trust that snakes are on a schedule...they could pop out at any point and I kind of like my fat stubby toes and hope to keep all of them... 2) it was muddy, I didn't want to get any other shoes dirty...
aaahhhh, the dreaded burn pile... that fire gets so big that we all hate to go over there and throw the stuff on. But someone has to do it... why not the boys that don't really need eyebrows???? I need what few I don't get waxed off.... here is Ty throwing a couple on.
And here are the rest of them. These trees don't quite load like cedar trees do.

It is always great to reconnect with old friends. I was surprised by an old friend that saw my name and number come through on her office fax as I was placing an order with a coworker. After confirming I was the same person we began to chat. That friendship was back in my "other life" my pre-divorce days. A big group of us neighbors from a previous neighborhood and a couple of others we drug into our small (ok, it was kind of big on occasion...) would get together pretty much every weekend. I loved those days! I love to play hostess. I love to have large gatherings at my house. It was a blast MOST of the time. There was the exception to the fun when one of our husbands would drink too much and put us into a tailspin, and on occasion, one of us women might get a little sloshed and make the whole night worth it! You see, the men drank, and the women talked, compared decorating tips, griped about our husbands, oh and we occasionally watched the kids! I would not trade those days for anything! I did a lot of growing in that time (both mentally and physically!!) After the divorce the separating of friends happened. I was sad but it usually happens. I still talk to almost everyone still from that group on a regular basis. But this person. She surprised me with pictures of her kids and I hope that she will send me more in the future. It was really good to hear from her and I hope that through all of the years that have passed we will still remain friends though we don't see each other. Oh, I left out a part. She said that they are now the party house, with their pool and they host the bbqs with their neighbors like the ones we used to throw. That is great to hear! Not enough of that goes on....(with the exception of you hippie chick and hooker....I know I can come to yalls street and something is always happening.... love ya ;) )
Ps....I don't know why I felt the need to write this except that I gave her the website to the blog and hopefully she is reading it every once in a while and I hope that she knows I still love them!
I'm signing off and going to my real job....the house! Have a good evening!

This weekend was pretty packed. Friday worked out at the gym. Yes, I thought he was killing us, but I survived! Then finished painting the laundry room. Saturday went to the movies and saw The bucket list. Get out the kleenix for this one! It was good, but sad! Then off to get a haircut and the scrapbook store where I picked up the Lux Trinket line that I was dying for! (see post below...) Then we spent the evening visiting with Doye and Vicky.

Ok, those of you that know me and have looked at my scrapbook room, you know that I don't need these....
But I want them.....Cute, Cute Luxe line Trinket.
No one around here sells them unless I go to Waxahachie....uhhhh hello, Guess I will just have to pay for shipping since gas is $3 a gallon!!! With Valentines approaching soon and those cards that need to be made.... I need to snatch these up. You should too! See their blog for some awesome ideas on how to use the papers and the rub-ons! http://blog.luxdesigns.com/ or http://www.luxedesigns.com/

One often thinks of a new year as a new start. When actually that isn't what it is at all, there are no new starts. Things can not and will not be forgotten from years past. Having said that....
I am NOT going to do new years resolutions.
I am going to set goals though... here are some:
* I'm going to make sure I do at least one "creative" thing each week. Hopefully more, but at least one time during the week I want to do something that I enjoy, whether it be making cards, scrapbooking, or just making something for the house. No matter who is upset that I am closed up in my scrapbook room ignoring them.
* I'm going to declutter my life more and make a conscious effort to buy less "stuff". I don't need all that I have and I sure do not need to buy MORE!
*Speaking of more stuff....I want to get out of debt. I want to sell a couple of more houses this year and pay off credit cards. (without charging them back up!!!) I can do this if the old explorer holds up!)
* I'm going to try harder to pick up after myself - I get on to Tyler all the time for the trails that he leaves behind when actually I leave them too. I let messes (of all sorts) get a bit too much before I clean them up and I need to stop that.
* I'm going to work on my physical and mental health, I'm going to do more for "me" and less for everyone else. If you are everyone else, I'm sorry.
* I'm going to practice forgiveness -
