Since I last blogged.............................

Wow I can't believe I'm saying this and I'm not going to say it too loud, but the house is clean the laundry is done, the two youngest are asleep and I actually have a little time to kill so I thought I'd do a little blog post.

Since I last blogged.............................................

* We've been to the doctor 13 times, emergency room once (we are all fine).

*Managed to get through the first 3 weeks of the kids being out of school.

*Planned a family reunion for 30 something people in the middle of no-where.

*Have done absolutely nothing crafty, wait I painted the front door (can you guess?) black! Ok, so my husband painted it but I hung a cute little wreath on it.

*Looked into buying a bigger house, but realized soon it still wasn't in the budget.

*Became a Great Aunt, wow that makes me feel old, speaking of old I also turned 33!

*Haven't lost one stinkin pound even though I go walking (fast, sorta) for an hour every day at 6:00 in the morning.

*Learned how to make home-made flour tortillas (maybe that's why I haven't lost anything).

*Had the opportunity to play my flute at the funeral of my cousins husband who died of a horrible disease called Stiff Person Syndrome, you can read their story here.

*Had a whole lot of solicitors come to my door and of course they all have to ring the door bell to wake up any kids that might be sleeping.

*Realized (not that I didn't before) what a wonderful husband I am and how lucky I am to have him and our 4 beautiful children.

*Bought a used car for my husband since out of his carpool of 5 he is the only one that hasn't been laid off.

*Counted my blessings!!!

*Got DISH - maybe that's the real reason I haven't blogged for like 2 months, I REALLY like TLC. My favorite show - 19 and counting, I don't care what anyone says, they are amazing.

*Moved the baby out of our room into his sister's room. For some reason, that is always tough on me.

*Didn't win one single prize at my husbands work party, my kids didn't realize that I was just as disappointed as they were.

*Missed hearing from all of you!

And there you have it, a little of what I've been up to the last two months.
