Sex and the City is finally back!

I am so ready for the Sex and the City movie! The ending of the series left you hanging (on purpose I am sure!) and I am so glad there is a movie. Too bad the series isn't coming back though. Well, you know where I will be on Friday night...

whew...I'm tired....

We have been busy busting it trying to get the house ready to put on the market. Now, some people would say just stick a sign out front, put a key container on the knob, and put it in MLS and you are good to go... But a perfectionist can not do that.... She has to have the carpets cleaned, new paint, shrubs, flowers, porch painted, windows cleaned, blinds and ceiling fans dusted, closets cleaned, drawers organized and pantry straightened. The irony of it, I am not a perfectionist, I just want to appear as one so when someone whom I don't know, who is looking at our house, the house we have overhauled and hope to make a boatload of money on, it has to appear perfectly kept. It is starting to wear me out, I am starting to think that I am dinking in order not to put it on the market...then I don't have to accept the fact that maybe it isn't that great...maybe it isn't worth that boatload of money, and maybe we might be there for a while...the unkown is scaring the heck out of me. I just want it over...soon.

Engagement pics

Well finally...months after the engagement and a couple of weeks before the wedding I got to shoot Tonya and James' pictures. We managed to get a couple of good shots inbetween all of the eye blinking!!! Man, there were a lot of pictures with closed eyes! Hopefully they will be happy with a couple of them. Here are some for you to enjoy.

Hobby Lobby Class

Well, the details are finally coming together. We have a blog set up to put class details on, we have an email ( set up for people to sign up, but no flyer to put out at the store... I am waiting on someone to make it up...I know that someone is really busy having to carpool with her husband...but no this... So, now, maybe, we can get a flyer made up and then we can get some people signed up!!!

Pleasant surprise at Lunch

While frequenting my local hobby lobby today at lunch...(yes, I went yesterday too..) I didn't have anything to use my coupon on yet...I wandered the isles desparately seeking something that I do not have...when all of a sudden I saw them...I saw something that my friend hippiehickChick had told me about seeing in World Market. A big pair of scissors for my scrapbook room. Of course I rushed to World Market after she told me about them in hopes they were on sale, but no they were $50... I am only mildly insane, not all the way! So, I found a similiar pair, not as big, not wooden, and they do not open like the ones at the Market, but they still can be hung on the door or wall and get the same point across. All for a mere $8.99 they were on sale!!! I didn't even have to use my coupon...which of course left me wandering the isles once again. But this time with a huge smile on my face :)

Mothers Day Rocked....

Ok, so I griped a little bit about having to work on Mothers wasn't cleaning the house work, or burning limbs work was get in waist high grass, fight the spiders, lizards (geckos, or whatever else the slimy little things with legs are called) and praying to God there were no snakes, to clean out a fence line. Here are a couple of pics. It was a lot of work (some worked harder than the photographer....taking pics gets me out of a little work!!) I think the highlight of a couple of Mom's day was finding there were berry vines back there and also a Mulberry tree loaded with Mulberrys...Heck, I don't even know what a Mulberry is except for the song "here we go round the Mulberry bush"...I didn't know it was an actual berry... I just don't know about this livin' in the country stuff...

Come on IRS, you get my money from my paycheck like clockwork, every other Friday.... I want my money....I NEED my money...I need to buy STUFF....I don't know what...Just STUFF! Until then I will be wearing the online banking out looking to see if it has been deposited yet!

My "not" so little boy

It is finally over! We can all breathe now! Tyler has gotten his Eagle and the ceremony is now over. Sitting there in the audience yesterday it dawned on me on how far he has come in Scouting. As the leaders got up there talking about talking about all of his struggles and how he overcame them really tugged at my heartstrings. Tyler has always had to work for anything that he gets. Things just do not come easy for him (well, unless it plugs in, then he is a genius at it!) and to hear from the guys on how he overcame leadership issues, physical issues and sometimes even mental issues really made me proud. He is a great kid (even though he won't clean his room!)
