Busy Summer


I find myself with so much time, now that the kids have returned to Salt Lake. Its impossible to do laundry or open the freezer with crying (yellow popsyslces that none of them liked). I am working on it though. When they get back from their Lake Powell trip I will get to talk to them every night again. Soon soon. I have so many pictures that I am just going to add a few at a time. It was a really great summer.

Super Speed Children



























We had the kids for Easter and it was amazing and I will add that post soon, but when I took them back to Salt Lake we stopped and Em's house before retuning them to their dad's and they got right down to business. Parker and Bella were there also so it was all 6 of them running around at speeds not measurable by human standards and it was a riot to watch!!!

If i have to chase that stupid dog of mine around the nighborhood ( he can get out because the snow drifts are so high) one more time I am going to remove his legs!!! Did I mention its snowing again?

First three people

So Emily (my sister) is doing this first three people thing, and since I am crazy competive, here goes.
The first 3 people to respond to this post will get something crafty made by me! My choice. For you. This offer does have some restrictions and limitations:1. I make no guarantees you will like what I make.2. What I create will be just for you.3. It will be done this year.4. You have no clue what it’s going to be.5. I reserve the right to do something extremely strange.The catch is that you must repost this on your blog and offer the same to the first 3 people who do the same on your blog. The first 3 people to do so and leave a comment telling me they did win a FAB-U-LOUS homemade gift by me! Oh, and be sure to post a picture of what you win when you get it! Who’s in? Good luck!!!

Goals For the Week


As for the previous week, I did successfully achieve the goal of watching Naruto (20 Episodes actually) but I did not complete my goal of becoming a fitness trainer, I know, sniff sniff. I tried to get several people to ask me to train them at the gym, but no takers. So my goals for this next week are
1.Make dinners from things already in my pantry, minus $5.00 per day.
2.Draw or paint 2 pictures

Wish me luck!


p.s. Call me if you want something painted or drawn :)

St. Patty's Day






This is my third St. Patrick's Day without the kids. Last one we were in Mississippi and the one before fell on a Sunday, which was their dads day. But, as I said before this is Mark's holiday, so of course I can not relax, nono, I think each year they get more and more extravagant. The best part about creating a holiday for an adult, is that you do not have to dye the food green anymore or leave leprechaun footprints all over the house (did they come to your house this year Em?)! What we do do however is get a new green shirt and socks. This year Mark got a white dress shirt and an amazing green tie, yeppers all grown up! I then cooked for hours creating our authentic irish meal, which consisted this year of corned beef and cabbage, irish soda bread and irish creme brulee, all of which were so good that I actually ate until I threw up, and not on purpose, yea (self control, whats that?)! But the best part of all the game was, the scavenger hunt provided by the fitness center. Wow! Not only do I have throbbing thighs (no driving allowed) but I have a pair of shoes, sitting at the front door covered in 2 inches of mud (i.e. shortcuts)! However the epitome of this event was the fact that we came in dead last, oh yes last the best of all the game!! Congrats to the three top teams that just so happened to work there....huh......
