Activities?

School starts here in a week and a half. I can't believe it. We haven't had much of a summer with our BIG move and all. I feel for Madison. This week we are going to do things in our home town to keep her busy. Tomorrow we are going to do some local museums and the park. Thursday we are going to eat lunch at our local diner downtown and do the library. Friday I'm not sure and this weekend hit the local water park. I need to keep her busy with things so she feels I didnt want to do things with her. Being a stay at home mom is harder than it looks. By the end of the day I usually am so worn out I hit the pillow hard. Can any of you think of anything else we can do to finish this hot summer out?
Have a great day.

We have arrived

Well, we made it. We are in the house. I knew this day would come..but not soon enough. We stayed the first night Sunday. We ALL slept ALL night long. It was great. I'm taking it one room at a time....or a day. Our lives are some what nuts right now. Scott and I leave for a trip on Friday. We go with friends somewhere for a weekend every year. This year we decided to goto Missouri tubing down a river with some "much needed beverages" and no kids. There are 18 of us. We are staying 2 nights...it should be so much fun. We leave Friday at lunch. So...now that I have un packed...I'm re packing all of us for the weekend. But this is okay.....I'm looking forward to the weekend with friends.
Thanks to all of you for checking in with me.......I may not be back until Monday....so happy week friends.

A look back

One year ago today......I blogged for the first time. WOW! And what amazing people I have met. I started my blog for family and friends out of town to read and keep up with me. And some around town that I don't talk to everyday. I have met so many great friends through my blog. I enjoy each and every one of you. I first started reading Rocks in my Dryer......and fell over with laughter and decided I could do this too. Then Katherine at Raising Five helped get me started.....please go check her out she is awesome. As time went by..Chrissa at Ramblings of a Stay at home Mom and I had so much in common it was scary. Sandra at diary of a Stay at home Mom was one of my first constant readers and commenter's and still is thanks gal check her food blog out...wow.....as the months passed I fell in love with Barb at A Chelsea Morning.....she of course is AWESOME! She talks to me on a personal note and always has great advice for me. She emails and keeps me honest...... Overwhelmed with Joy has great ideas all the time and her Favorite Ingredients Fridays...... The Recipes are wonderful. Patti at Stolen Moments is great and I always leave laughing or smiling. I know I haven't said everyone one on my blog roll.......I love them all ..Gail @ More than a Song...and her sister Stacey at Exceedingly Mundane...sorry ladies it wont let me link to you...stupid blogger.....please check them out on my blog role they are truly special...Gail checks with me daily she is always there to read and listen...and Stacy has a great question of the day every week I really enjoy that. They are so sweet to me. And I cant forget my dear friend who keep things together for me....Laura at Org Junkie......thanks for your encouragement this passed year.....your a great friend. I love all of you.......Flip Flop Mamma....hang in there gal......God is Awesome.....you know this! I'm praying for you.

This blog helps me to unwind...de stress.......and be myself. One year ago.....WOW!
Alot has happened in one year. Miller has turned one. We moved out of our old house. We bought another great home. My grandmother passed away. Life sometimes spins you around and drops you where you least expect it. My life is pretty good right now and I owe it all to God.
Scott and I have struggled and we have shared so much happiness. But we have grown stronger.
I hope you all continue to read about my crazy and some what hectic life. Leave a comment you lurkers......I have truly enjoyed the last year.....Thanks!

Don't give up on me everyone

Wouldn't you like to be here today? Its so beautiful. Maybe one day?
We are about a week away from moving in. I was out at the house this morning cleaning bathrooms. We still need to finish painting the kitchen and the hardwood will be finished today. We get a new hot water heater put in tomorrow. And then just little things. Scott is off most of next week to start moving. I have furniture being delivered Monday and Wednesday. So it is coming together.
I hope you all have a fantastic weekend and I will try to post next week to keep you up on what is going on. I promise one day I will get back to posting everyday and I hope you all stick around.
