Work, work work

Today was a normal day, i woke up to the sound of the most annoying thing, my alarm clock. I looked at it and told myself, "5 more minutes", That went on for 5 more times. Then i realized, Holy moly, i have 20 minutes to get ready for work. So I rush around the house getting my things together to make it out the door, Its a good thing I showered the night before and we are required to wear hats to work....So that all in all cuts down a lot of time. I did make it to work on time, I left around 2:15pm. It felt nice getting off that early. When I got home, Craig was there to greet me in the driveway. He surprised me and had our new yard lights put in with the help of his dad. They look so much nicer than the ones that were there, before the new lights are house looked like it was haunted. They just weren't very fancy, AT ALL.

I am very excited about having Friday, Saturday and Sunday off. We are thinking about taking a day trip to the ND State Fair...we'll see how that goes. Sometimes its just as nice staying home. :)

Caitlyn is still crusing along in her swimming lessons. It makes me so happy to see her in the water and not scared. I remember as a kid, I was deathly afraid(still am) of the water. I never did learn how to swim. So it makes me very relieved and so happy at the same time. My little girl is growing up so fast!

Logan is growing like a little weed as well! I bought some cookies at the store tonight and was filling the cookie jar, Logan comes walking up and starts pointing at the jar and yelling, "COOKIE, COOKIE". My boy loves to eat...he is not very picky. We have found maybe 3 things that he doesn't care for. But he's always willing to try! I think he gets that from his mama! :)

I hope everyone has a good rest of the week!

God Bless!

Not Me Monday

It was not me who wanted to crawl back into bed after getting woke up by the dang alarm clock.

It was not me who ran around the house like a mad lady this morning trying to get things cleaned up.

It was not me who got my head bit off from a customer for not having anymore of the item they requested.

It was not me who took a much needed nap on the couch today.

Lets hope that the next few days fly by and I can have a few days off!!! :)

Thankful Thursdays

1./ For my computer for telling me that it was "Thursday" today,where does the time go?

2./ For my wonderful children that bring such joy, excitement and frustration at time, without them my life would be very dull.

3./ For my husband, he takes such good care of us all and provides us with everything that we need and more.

4./ For the grocery store, for giving me all the food that i don't need. :)

5./ For my house, dreams really do come true.

6./ For my sister, for always listening to my rants and raves.

7./ For myparents and Craig's parents, for always helping us out.

There are so many things to be thankful for that its hard to list them all, but this is a short list of the ones that came to mind.

Its Monday already, not one of my favorite days. Caitlyn started swimming lessons today and absolutely LOVES it! She did very well for her first time!!! After we left she asked if we could go to a motel and swim.

I have been busy organizing our basement, earlier this spring we had some water come through our window that caused a BIG MESS. SO I have been going through it all. I didn't realize how much stuff we have!!! I told Craig that it looks like we will be having a rummage sale sometime this summer to get rid of some of it to make more room. We hope to get carpet put in this winter(fingers crossed) and make a nice play room for the kids.

I hope everyone is doing well and has a great week!!

New to this.

So I have decided that it is rather interesting to read other blogs, so I have decided to start my own.

The summer has been flying by! Its hard to believe it is already July. Before I know it Caitlyn will be back in school starting 2nd grade. She has been having a very fun summer, keeping busy with the neighbor kids and today I signed her up for swimming lessons...she is very excited! She starts next week.

Logan has been walking/talking/running!!! He is a very busy little boy. Anything that he isn't suppose to have, he tries his best to get it!

We are hoping that sometime this summer we will be able to go on a small family vacation. Lets hope that our schedules will allow us to do so.
