Just some Random Thought....

  • I have to stop waking up late. I have been late 3 out of 3 days so far. And Monday I woke up so late I wore my pajama shirt to work and half way through the day noticed Butterfinger that I had for a late night snack all over it.

  • Why is it that when I am at work I miss my children soooo much, then within 15 minutes of being home I am ready to send them to Children Services??

  • My very clean house is not so very clean anymore

  • We are going Strawberry picking Saturday morning.

  • I am going to play switch a roo with some of our rooms. Ok, picture this, we have a Cape Cod. My bedroom and computer room is upstairs, so here's my plan. I am going to move the boys bedroom and the playroom up stairs. And move my bedroom and computer/scrapbook roon downstairs. Now I just have to find a way to lock the new computer room door and my plan wll work.

  • I have been so stressed out at work lately. I could just scream.

  • I am $300 short for vacation. I hope the money fairy visits me really soon.

  • My daughter, Emma, started seeing a therapist. You can go ahead and put my down for mother of year please. I totally screwed her up.

And now time for some completely random pictures.......

Experienced Bloggers..... Need Help???

So this is going to sound really stupid but I need a little help with my pictures.

I read blogs and I look at pictures and they always have cute little frames around them, whether it be just a simple white or black border, or one that looks like a polaroid shot.

I need my pictures to look better, so 2 questions, where can I go to get them and how do I do it. (I am pretty good on the computer, just speak in lamans terms) Thanks!!

Weekend Cleaning

Emma is getting a new bedroom set!!! I am sooo excited. She is getting 2 dressers, a desk and head board and foot board that ALLL MATCH!!

It took us about 4 hours to get her room all cleaned out and ready for the new furniture. Here are a few pics of that mess.... and this was after we took her 2 dressers, desk and bed and put them somewhere else. This child has sooooo m uch stuff. We took at least 4 trashbags and 3 bog boxes to Goodwill.

So as you can see we had alot of work to do. I will post more pics after her room is all set up and done. I can't wait!! I am sooooo excited!!

Happy June 1st!!

I offically have 15 more paychecks until Christmas. Wow, I have no idea how I am going to pull this one off this year, but oh well, I have 10 more paychecks till have I have to think about it.

I will tell you right off the bat, I am having trouble typing cause the boys are acting crazy. I have used the backspace button so many times in these couple sentences that I should prolly have the computer taken away and sent to bed as my punishment.

So let's see, I did have a good post idea then it went right out the window with the rest of the evening.

So I am going to talk about my vacation. We have about $1000 and 2 options.
1. Alabama - visting my aunt and uncle. We would leave here on a Friday, head to TN, spend he night with the cousins, then head to Alabama the next day and do the same thing on the way home. That way we can spilt up the 12 hour drive into 6 hours each day, taking a total of almost 4 days to do all the driving. Then we would stay at my aunt and unlces house and hopefully do some stuff locally, like the winery, zoo, swimming and taking a trip on the boat. I figured about $350-$400 just in gas and tolls and eating on the road total. Then the rest on doing stuff in Alabama.

2. Staying local at home.
Taking 3-4 days going to Idlewild Park and the Pittsburgh Zoo. It's about 6 hours of driving total and I could get a 2 night Idlewild package complete with 4 tickets for $330. We would just have to buy all the lunches and dinners. Here's what I was thinking; leaving monday, chillin at the hotel that evening, tuesday go to Idlewild, back to the hotel, wednesday driving to the zoo, then wednesday night heading back home or catching a hotel with pool just for some more added fun.

And to top things off I really haven't discussed option two with the hubby yet. I am waiting for a good time. And did Imention, that if we choose AL that we would be eating most lunches and some dinners in (saving money) and we may have already told them that we were coming.

And to counter that, our air conditioner in the Jeep is broken and what if we really can't get it working, I am traveling that far with no air in the car. Just not going to happen. I could maybe drive an hour or two but not 6-7 a day for 4 days and AL in late July is going to soooo hot anyways.

So I am really torn what to do, so please please leave comments and give me some advice. Thanks
