Challenge to those who read my blog..

Sign in and let me know you have been here..

And I might have a rak for a few ppl!!

Have Fun!!!

Howdy ya'll

Its Friday.. I went out for a run.. 2.5 miles... its not to hot yet.. its still early though.

I think Michael and I are going out for dinner tonight and maybe a movie.

Not sure what the plan is for today. But I guess I will figure out something to do.hehe.

Michael got a huge load of dirt to fill in holes in the yard yesterday he unloaded that and I mowed the grass, it couldn't wait till Mckay got home. With all the rain the grass has shot up. It looks so nice now. Michael mowed the hill I hate that part.

The county is suppose to come look at our driveway, its falling in close to the road. Looks like the culvert is washing out..Michael called to check to see if its their problem or ours. They said they will fix it. I hope they fix it like Michael wants he is such a perfectionist.

I got lots of embroidery finished yesterday and a few scrapbook pages for my 30- day challenge. I need more pages for that though. I might have to go shopping.

Not sure about the weekend plans yet.. I guess spontaneity it will be this weekend.

Boy its sure been a quiet week around here without the kiddos. I cant wait to hear about all their adventures.

I hope everyone has a great weekend!!!

Gosh its Thursday..

This week have flown by.. of course I knew it would.

Michael and I went and did a little shopping last night.. Had Culver's for dinner and split a cashew Carmel sundae. it was yummy.

It has rained everyday since Saturday here. Going to need to mow the grass. It hasn't grown for weeks its seems like cause the lack of rain..

The rain is really messing with the chemicals in the pool though.. its going to need alot of work..

I did get some embroidery finished yesterday and some scrapping.. although I didn't get as much done as I would have liked. Think I might try to work on that today.

Michael came home and picked up his truck to get some free dirt.. So he will get home just a little later today.

I think we are having tacos for dinner.

I talked to mom, dad and the kiddos yesterday they seem like they are having lots of fun.. and being good I suppose.

Michael and I have been talking about maybe going to Nashville for the weekend..We will see how that goes..

No run today slept really late.. blister needs to heal some more.. ugh!

OK enough is enough..

Everyone have a great weekend if I don't post till Monday!!

Mid week

Not sure what the plan is for today..

Top of the list is do some scrapbooking and embroidery..

Its rained here everyday since Saturday..The pool needs some work before I can use it.. cleaning is a must.

I do go for a run yesterday it was really hot though. I got in 2 miles. I have rubbed a blister.. several weeks ago.. I have be babying it hoping it will go away. So I skipped the run today.. although I really wanted to go.. but my foot would have hurt..

I havent really done much to talk about in the last few days.. The boys have been gone and I have enjoyed the quiet.

I did my nail and toenails.. they look good.

I have relaxed a bunch.

Oh Dawn got my Purse done.. go take a look on her blog.. and look at all the other cute purses she has made.. wouldnt mom love that Mickey one.. Dawn is a big Mickey fan too..

Not much else to say!
Have a GREAT day!!!

Its been awhile...

Its been a few days since I made a post so I thought I better get to it.

Friday I went to the local scrapbook store they had a sale 40% off everything with a few exceptions. which none of them applied to what I wanted. Got a new clear block for stamping, some rubons, some paper for 30-book,some cool fat eyelets and chipboard.

The boys and I had lunch with mom that day. and then came home and packed their stuff for the trip.

The boys left with my parents early Saturday morning for a weeks vacation.

I haven't started to miss them yet. Today is my first day of being by myself.

Michael and I did some fun stuff over the weekend.. We were going to go tot he drive in but we got this huge storm on Saturday night. so we went shopping and ate out instead.

Yesterday we just hung around the house and did a few odd jobs that needed to be finished..Michael worked on the headliner for his truck. He framed our family tree and hung a few pictures in the living room. Watched it rain a bunch too. We also watched the Nascar race.

Went for a evening walk too that was nice.

Today I plan on working around the house. Laundry needs to be put away, dishwasher unloaded and loaded again. Embroidery is a must with no kiddos home.. I should be about to get a lot accomplished. Plus I want to work on my 30 day mini album. I think I up to day 7. I have been keeping notes on what we have done for the month.

So now I'm going to finish my coffee check my email, all the bb's and blogs.

Boring day..

Yesterday was just a big resting day seemed like.

We did get some rain at least. Should help the garden grow.

First we were off to the $1 movies for the kiddos. Called mom she met us there. and they were sold out. So we decided to get some b-fast. since we rushed out of the house to make it there in time.

We went to Lifeway I had a Gift certificate got a new canvas painting for the Living room. Then the boys decided what to do..

Seth wanted to come home and play on the Internet.. he was meeting a buddy at clubpenguin. Mckay went home with mom..

Seth and I played Video games all after noon and the computer.

He helped me make a salad for dinner. He chopped up a lot of veggies sampling as we went.

Michael got home about 5:00.. we ate then went to his softball game. They lost by a bunch.

Came home watched some TV then off to sleep..

Fathers Day

We picked Seth up from his friends house Saturday evening and Mckay came home Sunday morning before church.. I got to see my dad for Fathers Day.. wished him a happy one..then we went to church.

We went out for lunch for Fathers Day. Michael got to choose so we had Ruby Tuesday's. It was yummy had enough leftover for dinner last night too.

Hung out at the mall for a bit, talked to mom and then went home.

We pretty much hung out at the house all afternoon and evening.. It was so hot we didnt do anything outside.

I tried to hook up my new router. so Mckay's can have wireless internet. I didnt do so well, so I had a friend come and fix it for me. Its nice at least I can tell where the laptop has been and can filter stuff.

Wondering if the construction guys are coming today.. not here yet and its after 7:00..

I guess I will work on embroidery today. I was debating about a run.. but I think not feeling lazy today.

Maybe sometimes this week I might take the kids to the movie theather.

I dont think I will see Michael for awhile today, long hours planned then he is going to work on something for a friend.

Have a Great Monday if that is possible..

Saturday no kids... no hubby

Michael ended up working today. He wasn't to happy about that.

Mckay is at my mom and dads. He is helping dad with an old truck he is rebuilding for a guy.

Seth is spent the night with a friend. He stayed to my surprise. first time away without being at Granny's. I guess starting them early spending the night with our parents helped.

I have been out for a nice long run. I Got up when Michael left at 5:30. Had some coffee then went out for a run. It's still a little cool maybe 70.

Oh guess what the construction guys are working today.. Glad I didn't want to sleep in they started at 7:00 this morning. They are putting the roof on.. so maybe they will be done in a few days...

Maybe I should go outside on my back deck and watch them today..hehe..Since they enjoyed watching us in the pool earlier in the week.

Dawn is going to make me a cool purse.. purple and some other color when I decide.. hehe!! Since I can't make up my mind... I was thinking a neutral color to go with.. maybe charcoal gray...

Its so quiet around here.. I better go enjoy it...

I need to do laundry
I need to embroidery (gotta finish that huge order) its taken forever
I need to go to the grocery
I would love to Scrapbook.
Pick up living room..

Have a great weekend!!!!

Friday, June 15, 2007

Yay!! Its Friday again..

Although all the days in the summer run together.. Michael is not working this weekend that will be nice.

Mckay is going to spend the night with Granny and Pappy. He is going to help dad work on a truck. I think Mckay will have fun.

I need to think of something fun to do with Seth so he isn't disappointed.

I think we will probally go to town and run a few errands today maybe look for the one piece swim suit again. Mom called me last night and said there is a sale at JcPenny's today on suits. it really is almost to late in the season to find something they are picked over.

Construction guys are still working on the neighbors garage. Not much hammering yet. The are working on the siding.

Not sure what else we are planning this weekend. The boys already got their Father his gift. I hope he likes what they picked out for him.

We made ice cream last night after dinner. it was yummy but different.

While the ice cream was churning the boys lighted a few sparklers. then got the glow sticks out. the attached them to one of their nerf football things and passed it back and forth. it was fun to watch. They just had a hard time getting the glow sticks to stay on the ball. I tried to take pic but it was just to dark all you saw was the glow sticks. hehe

I did go to Joann's yesterday and got a few cool things.

Everyone have a great weekend!!

Trip to Evansville

We went to Evansville today with mom.

The first stop was the mall.. Took the boys to Build a Bear.. Lucky me a I had some coupons. Seth got a yellow striped cat. Mckay got a light tan velvty bear.

Then I looked for a one piece swim suit for the trips to Holiday World this season. I didn't have much luck.. pick over or way to expensive. I'm not paying 60 bucks for a suit.

Anyway, Then we went to Jo Ann's I got some Scrapbook stuff, and the boys picked up stuff to make some beads to make necklaces.

Mckay is off mowing the yard right now.

And we are waiting for Michael to get home from work.

Wednesday, June 13, 2007


I got up early went for a 3 mile run..

Thought I better update the blog its been a few days.

Michael is working 10 hour days this week, makes it a long week for him. He seems to be in a better mood. He almost has the new motor in the truck ready to start up tonight he is hoping.. keeping fingers crossed.. its been a pain..

The neighbor is getting a new garage built. so the Construction workers start hammering at 8:00. the boys are still sleeping see how long that last before it wakes them. These construction guys aren't worth watching hehe.. Been wondering if I want to hang out by the pool. Michael put the chemicals in the pool this morning so its ready to go.. guess I will see what the boys want to do when they get up this morning.

Tonight Mckay has Youth at church.. Seth's group is going to the park tonight. There is a spray park there it should be fun!

Tomorrow Mckay might go with the Youth to Bowling Green.. they are going to the Corvette plant and museum then to the mall.

Mckay took some of his educational money that he has been saving and bought a new laptop and printer.. its really nice.. He is dieing to get a router now so he can get on the Internet.. he better find some more money..

Hoping to get to go to Holiday World soon..

I need to work on some embroidery. and want to work on the 30 challenge album too!

Have a great day everyone!

Monday, June 11, 2007

Monday again..

I have made Mondays during summer the official cleaning day.. so when he boys get up and moving they get to clean their rooms.

We made it to church yesterday morning at least.

Then went to the Youth supper last night .. Mckay served our dinner to us.. It was nice.. Not sure how much money they raised for the youth camp trips yet I haven't heard.

Michael isn't going to be able to have a vacation this summer.. work is too much right now.. he is in charge of two jobs that need to be finished by end of June. hence his bad moods lately.

So I think that Fall break will be our family vacation.

I got a lot of miles logged last week.. most with my new shoes... almost 10 miles I think..

Have a great Monday!

Sunday, June 10, 2007


I went out for a run this morning.. 2 miles.. not sure if we are going to make it to church or not yet. I guess we will see.

Michael is not in the greatest mood.. If I can get the boys moving maybe I will take them..

Not sure what else the day has planned for us.. I guess I will wait and see.

Maybe I can work on some embroidery.. I have a huge order that I need to get out ASAP..

Plus, I want to get started working on my 30 day album..

Saturday, June 9, 2007


VBS is over.. its always a tiring week.

Michael is back to working long hours and weekends.. he is working today of course.

Mckay and I went out for a run yesterday morning. 2 miles to be excact.. He wanted to try out his new shoes.. He can only wear them for running.. so...

Im still working on my mini album for June. I have a lot of journaling.. I need to get some pages done.. so, Im not doing them all at one time.

Maybe the boys will spend some time in the pool today I not sure.

I thought about making a road trip today with the boys. but we stayied up late last night and the trip would be at least 3 hours each way.. and really not know if they would be good enough for just me..

We went to the Drive in and watched Shreik 3.. It was ok..The boys likes it.. we stopped and picked up Subway to take with us..

Hopefully I will something fun to post soon!

Have a great weekend!

New shoes

New shoes

doesn't everyone like new shoes... Well I got my new running shoes yesterday.. Thanks again to Aunt Ann.. Since they were a little over what $$ I had.. Mom paid for the balance... I love them so far... I have to break them in a little...

Day 3 of VBS.. the boys seem to like it so far.. no complaining about getting up and going at least.

Michael had to put some chemicals in the pool for algae.. Michael said it smelled like a pond.. he he.. I hope that its better this afternoon.. so the boys can swim.

Mckay is going to Church Camp the end of July he is so excited about that.. I heard Middle school kids were expensive..

Michael and I were trying to figure out a week for vacation.. looks like we might have to wait till Fall break for a vacation.. Every week has something going on.. crazy.. and there is only 6 weekends left before school starts or about that..Summer for the kids is short this year.

Thanks Again Aunt Ann for my new shoes.. love them!! I will post a picture soon!!

Everyone have a great day!!

I love surprises!

I'm so excited.. I got the best surprise in the mail yesterday.. My favorite Aunt sent me $$ to buy new running shoes... and I quote she said "don't buy cheap ones.. so you can buy Michael, Mckay or Seth a pair too".. Isn't that great... So I'm going out today and buy me a new pair.. then I have to send her a pic.. I think that is a fine deal huh..Ya know a new pair of running shoes to me is like candy to a baby..Thanks Aunt Ann!!!

No rain yesterday, Michael's game didn't get rained out.. The won 16-10.. Yay! two in a row.. We went out to Ritzy again for Food and ice cream.. Michael said if they keep winning he will be broke from buying all that ice cream.. and I will have to run extra to keep the pounds at bay...

Day 2 of VBS.. I have an extra child to take today. She just lives about a mile up the road shouldn't be a problem.

Mom and I are going shopping for my shoes and run some errands today while the kiddos are in VBS.. then when we pick them up we are going to take them to do something.. not sure what that something is yet!

I got a bunch of my embroidery finished yesterday I'm really happy about that.. I still have lots more to do though.

The boys cleaned their rooms yesterday too.. they look great.. they did it without to much arguing about it.. I helped them just a little.. just enough to keep them on task.. their rooms hadn't been cleaned for a month i bet.. Mckay had a cousin come spend the night on memorial day weekend.. he said he wasn't putting his stuff in Mckay's room he might lose something hehe..that should have told Mckay something..

OK enough I guess for today.. I will get around to posting the 5K pictures soon.. I still need to load them to my computer

Have a great day!!!

Monday, June 4, 2007

First day of VBS

The first day of bible school is today.. The boys were happy to go I think.. Mckay started Youth class yesterday in church loves it.. They get to choose a color to paint their new sunday school class.. plus they get to paint..

I did get out for a run this morning.. it was cooler than usual but it was a nice run.. I did 2.6 miles.. I got the Nike+IPOD working finally yeah.. Now to figure out how to get the information to to keep track of my workouts and totals and such.

I have already got some embroidery finished today.. while the boys are at VBS..

I think it might rain today around noon.. we will see.

Michael has a softball game this evening.. maybe it wont rain it out and they win again!!

I need to hit the grocery store and I have to fill up the car with gas that will cost.. ouch!

Hope everyone had a great weekend..

Saturday, June 2, 2007

Kroger 5K today...

Yep! the Kroger 5K was today.. Mckay got 3rd in his division.. and I finished.. hehe! Seth didn't run.. I believe everyone stayed up to late.. Seth had a hard time getting ready to go this morning. We had to be there about 7 or 7:30..

Michael took lots of pictures of the run. I will try to load some of those by Monday.

Michael is working on putting his new motor in the car. Hopefully he will have it up and running again this weekend.

We have a barbcue this afternoon should be lots of fun too! I need to get some stuff ready to go..

Mckay is wiped out and is taken a nap before this afternoons get together..Maybe I should do the same..

Have a great weekend!

Friday, June 1, 2007

its June!!

Michael's game didn't get rained out.. It was a great game too..They won!! he was so excited they are 1-4 now.. hehe!! it went into double overtime.. the score was 9-11..
So we went out after the game and had Ice cream.
Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

here is a picture of Michael at an earlier game.

Slept in to late today to get out for a run.. I'm kinda disappointed. I'm lazy today.

The boys are getting in the pool I'm making a pizza for lunch..

I'm planning on making a mini album for June for Scrapbook playground challenge.. So I'm going to keep my notes here so I can keep up with the days and such.

I think I have sold my Mustang.. I have owned it since I was 17.. over 20 years wow.. it is kinda of bittersweet.. but its a car right.. making almost as much from it today.. that I bought it for in 87... wow huh.. that makes me feel a little better.

Not sure who and if we will run the 5K tomorrow.. I'm not seeming to be excited about it.. I guess it the laziness in me today.. I guess tomorrow we will see..

We do have a barbcue to go to tomorrow I think that will be fun.. after I accepted we got another invtation to another barbcue.. shame they are at the same time of day.. or we could do both..

The boys have be bickering with each other a lot today.. I need to think of some more fun things to do this summer..I might take them to Build a bear.. just don't tell them.. the Drive in is a must too..

I think we will hit Holiday World sometimes in June too...

Not sure when the vacation is planned and not sure if we will go anywhere the gas prices are ridiculous..

Vacation Bible school starts next week I'm hoping the boys enjoy going. I need some time to myself to get some much need embroidery work finished.. I would work on it now but I hate leaving the boys in the pool by themselves.

Maybe I can sign the boys up for Swim lessons in a few days too.. that will make me feel better!
