31 Days to Finding Balance

Sunday, November 21, 2010


Are your surprised yet??? I've got to keep you on your toes, you just never know when I may "show up" again!! LOL!!

Have I ever said how much I LOVE Sunday's?? Cause I really do...nothing ever gets planned on a Sunday, it's all about relaxing and FOOTBALL!!! Maybe a load or two of laundry and some picking up from a weekend of hurricane Lily, but that's about it. Did I mention Football?? Really that's what goes on in this house on Sunday's. Lot's of flipping channels between games, yelling at the tv, and explaining to Lil that she's cheering for the wrong player. But you have to love that she knows when someone scores, and she yells "TOUCHDOWN" with hands in the air and all.

It's been a quiet weekend here. Friday consisted of scrapping with two lovely ladies, by the fire, AND we all got lots done!! I even managed to get all of my foundation pages done for my December daily. I would share pictures, but I sent the camera with Rob hunting. I will get some photos when he gets home.

Saturday consisted of Lily and I sleeping in, then getting up and having PB&J sandwiches for breakfast, cause that's what Lil wanted. Then I decided to try to get down the outside Christmas stuff from the attic. My sister came over to help and we managed to get it down with no injuries!! Lil and I then worked on getting stuff up outside, even though I didn't get as much done as I wanted to, I'm glad to have some of it done. I would have kept working if 80% of the lights didn't have half a string out. Nothing worse than Christmas lights that don't work!!! I had enough, and threw them all in a tub for Rob to mess with, that is so not my job!! Lil and I went to hang out with Grammy after I got my hair done. Needless to say, we didn't get home from grammy's till after 1am. Lil was asleep and slept all the way home, but was wide awake when we got her pj's on. So she laid in my bed and watched her favorite show, Billy the Exterminator. I know she was still awake at 3am, when the tv went off, cause she was not happy!! I did convince her that Billy would be on another day, so we don't have to watch it like it's never coming on again!!! Oh the child and her crazy shows!!

Totally off the subject, but totally has to do with Billy the Exterminator. One night Lil and I were watching Billy, he had caught a squirrel in someone's attic and had it in a cage to take and release in the woods. When he got to where he was releasing it, the squirrel had it's foot caught in the cage and he was worried about it and had to cut the cage, to save the squirrels foot. Of course he was talking to the squirrel as all of this was going on, and talking to himself. He said to himself, this squirrel is pissed off, come on buddy, don't be so pissed, you're going to hurt yourself, things like that. Fast forward to bedtime, Lil and I are walking back to her bedroom and she stops, has this really serious look on her face, puts her hands out in front her, and says "Mom, that squirrel was really pissed of, wasn't he mom??" Oh Lord, the look on her face and the words from her mouth almost sent me to the ground with laughter. I kept my composure as much as I could, then told her yes he was, but that is not a word that pretty little girls should say. Of course she said, "when I get big, can I say that word Mom???" Of course my child would pick up on the worst word in the whole show!!!

Back to the weekend....we are doing nothing today, but watching Football, washing sheets, and waiting for Daddy to come.

Hope you all had a great weekend!!!!

Nice to see you back in blog world!!!


So very glad you are back!!

LOL..yeah for Lily--what a funny story.


I say embellish as you go along. That's what I'm doing. I did already add some fixings--but only loosely. The book is still pretty raw, but at least it's done-this is the first time, I've worked it this way. I think it's a great idea and saves time during the December rush. Can't wait to see yours!!!
