Busy, Busier, Busiest!

With 3 kids… that’s about all I can say right now. LOL. Busy!!!! Kaeden had his first official fencing practice today. So proud that he enjoys it. =) We’re going to Rockwall tomorrow for him to see other fence and to get fitted for his new gear. Yay! He’s sore, but happy. =) And this momma is TIRED!!!! G’night all!

The Tuesday After A Holiday

WHEW!!! I’m one tired momma. Not only did I put in 9 hours straight at work, I hauled a mattress across town (I had a spare one, so I sold it), had to pick Bridgette up after her first dance practice of the new school year, my husband helped our friend move some stuff with our truck. I had him pick up pizza for something different and just down right fun with a house full of 7 people tonight, LOL. Then homework, showers, picking out clothes for tomorrow, making sure all the school papers are signed, everyone tucked in bed, and hubby just now headed to bed. So, quick and tired “good-night world”. Now to sign off, do the dishes, set the trash by the curb for in the morning, and THEN it’s mommy’s turn!!! =)

Our Labor Day 9-2-13

Oh my! Been up since 2:30 am off and on. Darn A/C unit kept making AWFUL racket. Thankfully, the kids slept through it. Thank God. Mommy and Daddy on the other hand? Not so much. LOL. Now we’re waiting on our tech to call back.

Oh gosh. Just when I think we’re on our way to getting out of debt, we had to pull out our old credit card that we finally paid off. BUT, I’m still thankful that we were in a position at one point in time to pay it off AND we’re thankful we have it available for an emergency.

But, at least the racket isn’t as bad as it was all night. Unfortunately, both girls woke up coughing. Yeppers, I foresee a breathing treatment in their future. Right after breakfast. Pray for at least a semi fun day with the kids. =-)

OUR DAY CONTINUES….

Well… several hours & $400+ later… we have A/C again. YAY! Thankfully, it rained off and on, so it was considerably cooler than what it normally is. Too blessed to be stressed. =-) My husband had the tech check our outside unit and top it off with Freon. The tech said that if we had continued to run it, it would have burned up and we could EASILY look at another $1-2,000.  Ouch. No thank you. Thank you tech for working on his off day. I can see now why he was kinda moody. Poor guy.

The girls’ coughing is a little better. Elizabeth has been cranky all day and crying like someone has been beating her. Not a happy kid. Tried her in panties for a bit, but it didn’t last long, and she peed through all of them. She cried, which kinda makes me hopeful, because she doesn’t like that feeling. With Bridgette and her potty training, she wanted stickers. With Elizabeth, she wants “paper”, aka, toilet paper. LOL. Stickers don’t interest her much and I never agreed with rewarding kids with food or candy.

Well, now it’s time for dinner. Hmmm… I really should start posting some recipes on here. I do love cooking. I love sharing the recipes and my version of “tweaks”. We shall see. Gotta learn how to add those pages and stuff first.

Newbie 9-1-13

Guilty as charged. I’m completely new to blogging. I attempted once before, but lost my patience very quickly. haha. So now I can unleash all kinds of posts. rawr. Kidding.

Well, it’s the first of September and thankfully, I don’t have to go to work tomorrow. Thank God for holidays. Which means I get to spend the day with my daughters. Bridgette (8) and Elizabeth (2). We need to go to the storage building and haul some stuff out for our yard sale next weekend, but quite honestly, I would prefer to just stay home and spend all of my time with them. 

Win & lose for tomorrow would be that my husband has to work. He’s a police officer, so for him, there’s no such thing as a holiday. But on the up side, it’s overtime. I can’t argue with that. =-) With 3 kids, all the extra helps. 

Hopefully our yard sale next weekend will help, too. Last time, I made out pretty good. I normally do at least 2 yard sales a year. Each sale normally racks in about $100-$150. That’s definitely my goal this time. Our son, Kaeden (8), starts fencing on Thursday, Bridgette is in dance, and Elizabeth is still in diapers. She is a stubborn potty trainee. But she’ll get there eventually. Just like her brother and sister did. 

Enough of my ramblings for now. It’s time to get my kids washed up, and ready for bed. The weather is changing and affecting us all. Blah. ‘Tis the season, but Fall is by far, my favorite season. A little sinus headache will not change my mind.

So, wish me luck on the new blog. Any tips/advice are welcome. Negative ones will be ignored. Sorry, but I choose to have a positive outlook.
