An ambitious list

Ok, I'm tired of not having things done so I created an ambitious list of things to be done every day so that I can have my house on the market by next week! Today's list:

1. Scrape paint on outside of the house
2. Repaint spots on exterior
3. Pull weeds on all sides of house
4. Tear down dog house and dog run
5. Replace fence cap and rail
6. Wash down exterior of the house

It's a bit much but I'm hoping by having an ambitious list I will feel better about the things that I do get done!!

illness has returned-Week 4

I spent Mon and Tues of this week sick with the flu. Not really the "Bad" kind of flu but, the high fever, body aches, don't want to move kind of flu. At this point in my life I find that I am even more grateful for my husband than usual. He made me food to eat, let me lay out on the couch and watch anything I wanted on the "Big TV", which I chose to be an 2 day marathon of my Beverly Hills, 90210 box set DVDs. He was such a trooper! I am so glad to have him!

Week 3

I'm a little behind in my posts for class, that happens a lot in my life. I'm always behind in the things I want to accomplish. Why is that?? I plan, I write lists, I organize and yet here it is, almost October and my house that I wanted for sale in July is still not on the market...ARRGH!!! SO FRUSTRATING!!!

Ballet Begins!!!

Swan Lake, Sleeping Beauty, Coppelia, The Nutcracker....I love the ballet!! I loved dance classes when I was a kid, the beauty and elegence of the ballet was enough to bring me to tears...it still does whenever I watch it. Now, tomorrow starts my daughter's first ballet class, she has her black leotard, pink tights, and ballet shoes and is all ready to go! I can't tell you how excited I am for this, and even though I don't want to push it on her, that she will love it as much as I did. This will be the first year that I have seen the Nutcracker since I was 17, and I am so happy to take her to be able to share in this special mother-daughter time that I know she won't want to do forever!

Week 2-Newfound appreciation for my senses..

Here is my second post for my psych class. This weekend I got dirt in my eyes and lacerated my corneas. It really is the worst pain ever! I spent some time in the ER (for the ever intelligent doctor to spend two minutes in the room and go, Yep you scratched your cornea). It does give you a new respect for your other senses though. I spent a lot of time these last few days listening to TV, which I found very frustrating. I really just wanted to see what they were talking about! I also had a really good Ribeye steak that the taste of seemed even more powerful than nomal. I also could hear my kids sneaking up and down the hallway, trying not to disturb me. I do have a great appreciation for my sight right now, I guess it's true, that you never really realize how much you need something until it's gone.

Congrats Amy and Pat!!

Welcome to the World
Kael Victor Nebesniak!!

Yesterday, my very good friend Amy gave birth to a beautiful baby boy! He is joining his big sister Deni into the Nebesniak family. I got to go up there last night with my other friend Rachael to visit. I took Taryn with me and when we got there, one of our other friends was there with her daughter. The four of us (Rae, Amy, Jessie, and myself) create 4 of the Fab Five and all of our first born children were girls, so we got a really sweet picture of all of them together.

Thank you for blessing us Amy and Pat with another member of our "extended" family! He turned us from the Fab Five to the Terrific Twenty!!

Week 1

Apparently, I get 10 extra points for my Psych class if I have a blog. So here is my blog! To my friends who check it, I will be posting once a week for the next 10 weeks. I am taking a pretty light class load this quarter (just 2 classes), but I am hoping to be done with my Associates degree next summer. It's taken me a very long time! I have been putting off taking College Algebra and I think I will continue to put it off for a another couple of quarters. That is one class I will not be taking online! Have a good week everyone!
