house renovations, Asst stuff and taking time for myself :)..

We finally got our extra bathroom put together (purchased everything in May/June 2015). When you have free help things get done when they cane.   It's been a week and we LOVE having the extra bathroom. It makes mornings quieter so the kids sleep in til 6:30/7 half the time now most days it was 6am!!   The basement family room painted up great as well. Dh put a ton of hours in down there (20 hours painting paneling over the course of a week).   We have a ceiling to paint and the floor aga

July update on our lives

July seems to be one busy month this year!!!   DH will likely be transferred to a different department and have his work day/shift changed to eariler in the day (pray for NO afternoons!!!!).

DH and I have been together 15 years today (yea at 36 i'm feeling a bit OLD!!)   I will be participating in the Biggest Loser with t

The toddler has stopped napping :(

she even refuses quiet time,   she naps about 20% of the time (one hr) and if shes not tired she yells and screams in there (shes quieter out her resting on the couch)   My work load just picked up about 30 hours of work to get done in the next month or so. 22 of those hours are phone calls (impossible to do with a three year old while sounding professional).   guess i know how my time with her at preschool will be spent the month o May!!!   PHONE CALLS!!!! 6 hours a week   I could hi

garage and basement clean out started today..

DH took two plus loads of junk to the dumpster   I sold the bike trailer (two seater kids one) dd won't us it so i got $30 for it we had $45 into it from last year. I almost kept it cause i can use it to haul stUff but would rather a signel tire trailer as it is easier to manouver for me on our horrible sidewalks and roads. someday I'll get one!   I'm debating selling my bike and buying a new one! hurts my knees when I ride it.. we'll see!   I have a bin of toys sold to be picked up Tue

Potty Trained!

WOOT the 3 yr and 1 month old DD is potty trained!   in a whole 27 hours (overnight of course a diaper goes on).   Naps are going to be debatable since she held number two for all of yesterday and was asking for a diaper at nap today ( said no sorry if you need to poop just use the potty).. ten mins into rest time she needed to come out to go   I'm thrilled that I have 65 or so diapers left "aka" 4 weeks worth of naps/bedtime)   WOOT!!   Now to repack the diaper bag with a few change

So annoyed.. kids and seat belts VENT

SO my 6.5 yr old just told me the grandparents don't put him in a seat belt to drive hiim half a block to the bus stop when its super cold out.   I understand they are doing me a HUGE favor taking him when its super cold so i can't have to budel up dd and go out for 20 mins with her.   Gma told DS "it's fine because we are staying on your street" Gpa told him "it's fine, just to the corner"     We had this talk last year when Gpa was not buckeling him into his harness.   I'm beyond LIV

Trying to make better food choices!

I LOVE that Aldi's has an organic option on items   We're switching over to some of them (kids snacks, salsa ect).   We've bought beef from a butcher for 3.5 years and I love the quality of it, they just had a sale on Bl/sl chicken breast for 2.19 pound so DH went and bought 10 pounds this am when i was at Zumba.   We are shopping at Trader Joe's more as well.   There is much more i can change and that I know.. but baby steps!!!   Usually a 8 count box is gone in 2.5 days and i bou

Goals for 2014

GET RID OF STUFF!!!!   If DH had his way he'd rent a dumpster and donate half the stuff in the basement without going through it.   Basement is 1st on my list since i'd like to put a bathroom down there in the storage area ( a friend says he can do the sewer/water line work for DH if not i could ask my dad/brother if i have too).   What "toys' do you keep of your kids? sseriosly!! noone bought crazy stuff but man it adds up fast with two kids   We need a better toy storage option in th

I need to vent about a situation

Yesterday DD and I were nearly hit by a town highway vehicle. I saw it was coming down the street, knew he had a stop sign and started to cross. I realized halfway across the street he is not stopping at the sign. I stop in the middle of the street.   He stops with the front end of his truck a few feet past where I am standing.(this stop was 8-10 feet after the stop sign!!)   I walk AROUND the front of his truck to get to the sidewalk.   I called the department yesterday and emailed: th
