70 & Sunny

No, this is not the weather forecast here in the midwest, but it is what I would like for it to be.  I had a dream last night that I was wearing flip flops.  That's all it was about, flip flops.  Not sure why, but I didn't care.  The closed-toe shoes were a thing of the past and my little piggies were free! Free as a bird!  I am so sick and tired of it being cold.  Not just cold, but really stinkin' much for global warming huh?!?  Thanks a lot Al! ;)  I was watching the weather this morning and today it is supposed to be sunny and 35, so that helps...but I'm still left wanting more.  I am realistic, I realize it's only February, but it feels like it's been winter for like 4 months now!  I heard on the radio that we have had snow an average of every three days this winter.  Every. Three. Days. 

I'm officially ready for sun, and the smell of stuff growing!  And my washer and dryer are tired of me having to wash so many darn socks...and sweaters...and pants.  I want it to look and feel like this.  Hey, a girl can dream right??

Baby Boom

It seems as though everybody is having a baby.  Lots of my friends are having babies, celebrities are popping them out left and right, and every commercial I see seems to scream "Have Baby Now!"...However, we are bucking the trend I guess.  Sure, seeing my friends with newborns and even holding them tugs at my heartstrings a bit.  But then I realize how much responsibility that is, and I'm not quite sure we're ready for it.  Although I'm pretty sure my hormones have another idea.  On Friday I happened to watch a Baby Story on TLC.  I haven't seen it in a long time, for good reason.  I should have avoided this again like the plague, but I didn't.  Big. Mistake.  I sat there in my PJ's and bawled my eyes out.  Not like an "awwwww that's so cute cry", we're talking "ugly cry with an awww that's so cute smile on my face" It was one of those moments where my husband would have looked at me in horror.  I can honestly say I have no freakin clue what happened!  Sure if I'm honest, I do want a baby...but if I'm realistic, it's just not the right time.  Darn reality!  So until it is the right time, I'll just live vicariously through my friends, knowing that you can always give them back :)

School's Out!!

No, not for the summer...yet.  But I got that fateful text message this morning.  Yes I've joined the 21st century and I get texts now instead of having to call on a phone tree!  I love it!!  So what am I doing at home today you ask?  Relaxing?  Surfing the internet? (well yes I'm typing on my blog, if you call that surfing) Painting my nails?  Stuffing my face?  No. No. No. and No. I'm cleaning!  And believe it or not I'm pretty thankful for this day, because our laundry has gotten out of control.  Is it weird that I'm constantly blogging about feeling like my life is a mess and my laundry is uncontrollable??? Probably, but who cares! Today is the day that I get to catch up, and I think the biggest reason I'm so excited is because I don't have to clean tomorrow since I'll get it all done today! :) I've been at it since about 8:30 a.m. and I'm on load #4.  Yay!  I'm also doing a test drive with the new Bounce dryer bar, so I'll let you know if I love it or hate it...

Busy Bee

Wow February is shaping up to be a super busy month! At least where the weekends are concerned...
This weekend is the Fireman's dance...always a good time and I love seeing people that I haven't seen in awhile.  Plus is just a short walk from our house, which is always a plus!  Sunday is the superbowl, we're still debating whether we're going to have people over or not...Next weekend is Valentine's day, enough said.  The 3rd weekend in Feb is looking like the weekend we get to go visit Lori and Blake in Oklahoma!  I'm super excited to see them and see their new house.  The last weekend in February is a dinner party with friends.  Whew!! We are super busy, but also super thankful to have all our friends to spend time with!!  Now if I could just have time to clean the house.............
