Manic Monday!!!

6 0' clock already, I was just in the middle of a dream *insert music*

Yeah it was more like 5:30am and I was in the middle of a dream, a nice dream too, not that I can remember it now no matter how hard I try. I do remember that I was enjoying it and then BAM (the sounds of kids and pugs).

When asked how many kids I have, now I say "4 kids, 3 girls and 1 boy". LOL
My pug girls have become an important part of the family, and where we go, they go, if we can get away with it obviously.

We were supposed to work on the yard yesterday but got a late start, didn't get out there until 10:30am and let me tell you something, the sun doesn't mess around. It was extremely hot, already in the 80's. We picked up the shovels determined to get some work done, and ended up only working for about 30 minutes tops. We gave up, how sad, but really I was sweating profusely, my lower back was killing me and I actually got a tan, just in that little time. So we decided to plant just some of the grass and leave the rest for next weekend. By the look of things this yard will be done next summer LOL

Does housework ever go away??? I mean just disappear, like one day you wake up and your house is spotless because a generous ghost decided to clean up for you???
My house is clean, everything is in it's place, not by luck, but because I've spent the past two weeks working really hard on organizing and cleaning. Yesterday I was happy, I put away 3 baskets of laundry, and you may laugh because it seems ridiculous, but to me it's HUGE.
No more digging through baskets to find that elusive tank top, or pair of shorts. I'm going to try real hard to stick to this, wash, dry, fold, put away.

Have you noticed that the minute you become a mom there's no reason to dress nicely???
I don't mean clean clothes, I mean DRESS UP, hair done, make up, nails, beautiful gown. This is why I wish I had lived in the Victorian times, I could always be seen in gorgeous gowns, but imagine trying to change a diaper wearing that?!?!?
One of my favorite genres of movies is Medieval, Victorian etc. and I think mainly because I enjoy drooling over admiring the dresses.
The last time I dressed up was for my high school 14 years ago. Great now I feel ancient LOL

So this morning, we're going to the park with Veronica and her kids. Later today I need to go drop off some donations at the Airman's Attic, but that is pretty much all I have planned for today.
I'm hoping to get some sewing done though, I still want to finish Jasmine's dress and start the other one. I'm also planning on making some bread, I think my bread machine is feeling neglected and it's time to take it for a spin. (you know what I mean)

I picked up some Herbs yesterday, for the longest time I've wanted to grow my own and let's face it, there's nothing better than the smell of fresh herbs in your kitchen. So I got Basil, Marjoram, Chives and I also picked up some Leeks and Red Onions......they look so pretty already. Lord help me to keep them alive, I am so not plant oriented.
The kids and Curt also picked up some Cantaloupe to plant......hopefully everything will survive and we will have fresh fruit, veggies and herbs :)

Well I better get going, it's already 8:30am and I want to get some laundry started and the dishes going before heading to the park.

God Bless,


  1. Hmmmm, Victorian times eh? The ladies that wore those really nice dresses were rich and had wet nurses and servants who changed the babies..and cook the meals...and did the housework...yeah..I see what you mean! The ladies who had to do that all themselves??? There dresses would be equivalent to our sweats today, I'm thinking. Have a good day! I'm off to work.

  2. I envy you trying to grow herbs. My husband loves to tell me about my "Thumb of Death." :)

  3. Not too busy today, huh? Well you can come on over to SC and help me out a little.
    I just did an overhaul in my small studio where I do all my sewing and such. I got so sick of looking at all the dust bunnies staring at me all day long. I thought if it is cleaned out a little and organized that I would be more motivated to work, but now I am just too stinkin' tired (plus, I think some of those bunnies jumped up my nose cause now my head hurts...ugh!).
    Tootle-loo for now, have fun at the park!

  4. Monday, Monday -- love it!!! I long for Sunday mornings when I take the effort to actually wear MAKE UP.

    Enjoy your day...

  5. Hey you, hope you had a GREAT time at the park today. We had a great day in MN but it's about to rain.

    I woke up to an e-mail from Dan about MORE nasty, nasty violence on his runs. I didn't know what to say back, and all I could think was, "What would Sandra say?" :) I'm hanging in there. Thanks for all your support during this!

  6. We call the Magic Cleaning Helper "The Cleaning Fairy" around here - she never visits, sadly.

  7. I know what you mean about laundry! I hate puting it away! and I'm soo far behind! I started getting it all done Sunday. Then I'm sticking to a twice a week laundry time so I don't get behind again!

  8. Hope you had a fun day at the park! good luck with the herbs and cantalope...I can't get anything to grow!

  9. I hate doing laundry! And that is exactly what I have to do today. My husband politely pointed out last night that our bedroom is a mess, so I have to tackle that today as well. Fun!

  10. mugwumpmom - LOL I like dreaming....LOL That's why I wanted to live in those times, they had maids and people doing everything for them....ahhhh bliss!!!

    airforcewife - LOL believe me I have that thumb too, but my hubby is actually really good at growing herbs, so I'm doing this with his help, or they will die.

    angie - boy do I know that feeling, you work really hard getting something organized and clean and then you're just too tired to enjoy it :)

    lori - LOL see, it's true, we only really get to wear make up or dress up once a week, if that. Hope you had a great day :)

    Emily - I'm glad you're still hanging in there, been thinking of you :) I'm still keeping Dan in my prayers and will continue to do so....just hang in there a little longer and before you know it, he will be coming home :) Hugs :)

    beck - Yeah she must be taking a vacation with my "Cleaning Fairy". Just hope they come back sometime before the summer ends lol

    Jaymi - Good for you, that's what I'm trying to do as well, but I always mess up and go back to not putting the laundry away.....*sigh*, when will I learn LOL

    michelle - I can't get anything to grow either, but hubby is good at it, so I'll let him help me LOL

    mommy@home - I have to do laundry too and it's one of the chores I really hate LOL Thanks for stopping by, going to check out your blog :)
