Woo! Monday again and it's a holiday! Happy Memorial Day everyone! The boys and I don't have any big plans for today. I'm doing my radio show and late on tonight we're going to cook up some brats on the Foreman. I'd love to say on the grill, but we don't have one and I can't afford to get one. It's on my wishlist for sure.

Whew! It's Thursday and it's still hot out! I thought the weather was supposed to cool down today. You coulda fooled me! I went outside to throw away some yucky cat litter and the heat smacked me right upside the head and had me scurrying back inside where I can sit in front of my little fan. It doesn't do much good but it's sure better than a boot in the butt!

Over on Sunday Shutterbugs, the theme for this week is Kiss. When I spotted these magnets at the gift shop in Greenfield Village, I couldn't resist snapping this picture. I wish it were better quality, but the shop was crammed full of people and I was lucky to get this picture because some kid kept spinning the rack these magnets were on. I wanted to buy one and bring it home with me, but for $9.99 plus tax, a picture would have to do.

So much to tackle, so little time. This week is pure insanity. I never thought I would say it, but I'm going to be glad when school is out on Friday. It will put an end to some of the running around. Some of it. There's still doctor's appointments from time to time and going into Hastings every couple of weeks to pick up the boys.

Ugh. It's hot. Who the heck authorized it to be hot? It most certainly was not me. I can tell you that. This week is insane enough without us getting smacked with temperatures hovering around 90. Yuck!
But, for now, I'm going to turn the fan so that it's blowing right on me and relax with some water and something on tv. I don't know what but I'm hoping something good is on. I'm feeling far too hot and lazy to go pick out a movie and put it into the dvd player. What would we have done before technology saved us from getting up off our butts? Well, I probably would have weighed a lot less which reminds me that I need to talk to nickle and Kath and Rob and Justin and ..and..and...well, I dunno who else about setting up our weight loss journey blog. No need to do it if they're not in.

Happy Friday, everyone! I hope that everyone out there had a better day than I did here. I swear it was just one darn thing after another. None of them were major but when you're tired and hormonal, they sure seem to be.

I bet some of you were wondering if I'm alive out here, huh? Well, I am! In fact, I'm alive and mostly well, even! After an incredibly wonderful week in Canada, I came home to a bit of chaos. The lease here is up at the end of the month and the leasing agent "randomly" decided that he had to do a house inspection before he would renew the lease for us. So, start a few days of mad cleaning and organizing combined with some superduper omg yay company that came to visit from Thursday until Monday. Thank goodness he was here because my darn futon frame decided to crack and I needed some help getting it outside for some lucky freecycler to attempt to repair. We replaced it with a pretty nice couch that we found at the Habitat for Humanity ReStore.

Welcome to (almost) Wordless Wednesday and another new theme over at Sunday Shutterbugs. This week, they chose Jagged. I love this theme. It's so creative and it just happens that I have the perfect photo that I actually took today!

Another Wednesday, another new theme over at Sunday Shutterbugs. This week, the theme is Jump. Now, I confess two things. 1. This isn't a new picture. I took it back when I was still attending UB. 2. I don't care. One of the wonderful things about themes is that you can make them work for you. When it comes to Wednesdays, I enjoy digging back through old photos as much as I enjoy taking a new one for the theme.

Over on Sunday Shutterbugs, the theme was Incandescent. They even posted a definition! For my photo, I chose this one of Roger. There's just something about this boy. I swear he has an inner light that just shines through him. I know he's going to do great things. After all, he is his mother's child, right?

Hi all! I just wanted to let you know I haven't fallen off the face of the Earth, I've just gone to Canada for a week. I'm hanging out with the awesome nickle and also go to see Kath. Yay! I'll be back next week and don't be surprised if I sneak in a few entries while I'm gone.

Just a quick note to those of you, who like our family, are planting gardens. Watch where your water is going. While a rain barrel is your best option for collecting water to take care of your garden, not all of us are fortunate enough to have one. If you're using a hose or sprinkler system to water, make sure that you do it early in the morning. That way your flowers/plants are getting as much water as possible with as little of it evaporating off into the atmosphere. This will keep you from having to water as often which will save on that water bill.
