It has been awhile!!!

I'm back...and I'm almost ready to blog consistently again! I have been BUSY with a capital "BuH" (as Sophie would say). :)

We have rearranged our house totally this weekend...moved three read it right.

And I am Ex. haust. ed.

My eyes are even a little fuzzy as I write this.

I wish I were a minimalist right now...I'm not.

My muscles wish I had worked out all summer...I didn't.

I'll post pictures of the move very soon.

Izzy and her uniforms...

Isabel LOVED trying on her new cheerleading uniform for us...but when it came to the orchestra jacket, she was a little less enthused. :) She bounced back quickly and put her personality into it...then it became a fashion statement. SO beautiful...inside and out...orchestra jacket or no orchestra jacket! :)

Hoping you feel good inside and out in any uniform you might wear today..

Happy day to you!!


Number 22 on the list...Keep the house clean all week!
Well, no one thought it could be done....and I'll admit, I had my doubts too!
I did it.
I kept the house relatively clean ALL week!!
Here's proof...Sunday night at midnightish!

Okay, now...I've had my share of things to deal with this week...someone gave Sophie a popcorn popper for free at a yard sale...I heard popping, but found that Sophie was nowhere to be found...she was in the bathroom...when you have to have to go...meanwhile, popcorn was popping out all over everywhere!!! :) A fun memory is better than a clean house, right?
Lesson from this week: A clean house is overrated...and kind of hard to do...memories are more fun to make and sustain! Anyway...we all made it and we lived to tell about it. I'm not sure it is good for the family when I'm serious about keeping things clean, that's all I'm saying.

One week

It's been one week since you looked at me...

Cocked your head to the side and said, "I'm angry"

Five days since you laughed at me saying,

"Get that together and come back to see me"

--these are the lyrics from a BNL song...
they seem to fit...
I've been ignoring my blog and I finally figured out why...

I'm wishing my blog were snazzier. I look at other's blogs and get a bad case of "I wish mine looked that cute." No, you have to say it with a more wistful sound in your voice! Anyone who knows about blogs and how to make them cuter, submit a comment and give me some help here. There are so many things I'd like to to know how to do...BUT...I will not let that get me down.

No way...

On the good news front: I've almost gone one week with a CLEAN HOUSE!!! (Number 22 on my list of 22 before 44)!! I have had NO ONE just 'stop by' this week, either. People only drop by my house when it is crazy unorganized, messy, and I've decided to treat myself to a great sleeping in day...THAT's when my company comes. They are always really sweet saying, "OH---you should see my house" or "THIS? This is nothing!" Meanwhile, their eyes are telling a different story altogether. They are saying, "Poor she troubled? I'm seriously worried for her...I wonder how her kids are living in this...what DOES she do when she gets home from work?"

Folks, I'm seriously okay! This week, though, keeping everything super clean...I've felt more stressed than ever. As always, Balance is the answer.

It won't be another week before I blog again... :)
