Project Appomattox

Our remodeling projects are all coming together....all at the same time. MDB is here installing the t.v. ( I have been without a family room t.v. and dvr for 9 days-I can't remember life before dvrs!!) Can't WAIT to watch my shows tonight :) :)

Mark is almost finished with painting the dining room.

My vanity top and sink are in and are being delivered today.

So hopefully by this weekend this house will be back in order!

Jack is back in school-3 days a week now! I think I'm going to be putting mom's sewing machine to good use this fall. I had my first sewing lesson yesterday and made a pair of flannel pants for Jack! I will try to post a picture of them soon-these house projects are getting in the way of my blogging!!!

They Survived

Just a quick note to let everyone know that the boys did make it back safely from their camping trip. No accidents to report....just Vance projectile vomiting in our car-not just once but twice. I think Uncle Justin will be driving on the next road trip.

Hope you all like my new look. Thought the pink would brighten things up a little and it was time for a makeover. Don't be scared to leave a comment and let me know what you think.....

I didn't get my new floor put in although I waited around all day for it. Can't get angry...I'm sure they are squeezing me in so I'm not going to complain.

Tony is supposed to be here at 7:30 tomorrow to do the floor.....

Didn't make it to the grocery again.....

Had pasta for dinner for the second night in a row .....

Made garlic bread out of some mini bagels I had in the pantry! Kids loved them! Ha!

HAVE to go tomorrow since I am out of plastic bags to pick up Junie B's business from the yard.....

Ryan meets her new teacher tomorrow evening-hope it's a good fit.

School Haircuts

I started the day with no plans - which are my favorite ones- and ended up with getting a lot accomplished. Ryan said she would like to get her hair cut so it just happened to be kids day at Fantastic Sams so that's where we went. You can't beat the $8.99 haircut which includes a shampoo and dry. Since I had Jack there thought he needed a little trim as well. Killed two birds with one stone.

Did a lot of house stuff, took Jack to a play date, went to the pool and even fed the kids dinner there.

The one thing I didn't do which is probably the most important is go to the grocery store!!!! Oh well, have enough to get us by for in the morning and will go tomorrow afternoon.

So the kids are set for school. Ryan starts next week and Jack the week after. Thank goodness....I will miss our carefree, lazy summer days but you know it's time to go back when the kids start fighting over who gets to pick up Junie B.'s business in the backyard.

Too Legit to Quit

I received my "mad money" in the mail on Wednesday just like Jodi said I would! The contest is legit and I will continue to go to Valvoline for my oil changes! Maybe I should go buy a lottery ticket this weekend.....this could be the start of something big! Ha!

Junie B

Here's another shot of her while she is laying in my lap while I'm on my computer.....

Ms. Sheila

Junie B. had her first real hair cut today with Sheila. I think her hair is shorter than when we first brought her home! She even put a little pink bow in but I am a little worried that it might give her a headache. Girls, you know what that feels like to have a rubber band in too tight...ouch. Oh well, we'll see how it goes. Ryan loves it so we'll keep it in for awhile!

So Junie is feeling frisky with her new do-it sure will keep her cooler in this hot weather.I was told that I need to brush her EVERYDAY. So will put that on my to do list with everything else going on and hope to get to it. I really liked Sheila-Rindy referred me to her and I think we will be regulars.

Valvoline Rocks!

I am $500 richer because of Valvoline instant oil change and I'm loving it! I went to have my oil changed about a month ago and my technician told me that if I called in and took a survey I would be entered to win $500 in gas money. Sounded good to me-you can't win if you don't play and with the price of gas and the size of my tank I thought why the hell not.

Good thing I was home yesterday when Jodi called from Valvoline to inform me of my winnings :) She made my week and she also said that I don't have to spend it on gas :) :) :) I can spend it on anything I want. I guess the right thing to do would be to put it in my gas tank for the next five weeks but it would be more fun to splurge on the boots I have been obsessing about for the past month.

My new kitchen table is being delivered today....Yippeeeee!
