Caitlin is turning 6 on Monday. My little girl is growing up! I figured I would share some of the things shes said thru out her life...

Caitlin "Mom" , me "what" *silence*

At Three, Caitlin started preschool. The other kids in her class were "Her Kids" lol, By April they turned into "Her Friends"

4 yrs old "AWE MAN!"

We have had fridge "maggots" (magnets) for several years now...

"Caitlin, what is your favorite color?" "Pink... my favorite color is yellow"

"ZOE don't hug me! Your hugs are too cuddly!"

"Daddy, is your brain thinking right?"

Stuff in our house has a tendency to "pissapear"

I have really strange dreams! I had a dream that Chance told me my website was done & how I needed to get a crap ton of "product" ready to sell! So I felt the need to make stuff today! And thats just what I did! I made a ginormous kit!

Now that I am sitting here ready to type out the other two strange dreams that I have had recently, I can not remember them!! WTH!

Ok time to go off to dream land!

Why didn't anyone tell me I had not updated my blog since Tuesday?? Its Sunday! What the heck people?? I know I complain when others do not update their blogs... lol

Ok so since Tuesday... Its been beautiful outside, it did rain, but its been so nice. Spring Break for my kiddo starts tomorrow... If you have any tips on how to get her to clean her room (so she can GO OUTSIDE), let me know. Cuz I am done. I am ready to throw them all away. But I can not do that!!! UGhhhh.

Friday, Kim & I went up to Medford MN to the outlet mall to do a little shopping. I don't think I spent more then $60. The prices just were not right. I am not a name brand person, my kids only wear name brand stuff when A) its on super sale, or 2) when someone else buys them it!!! Of course, you could just about call "circo" and "faded glory" name brands since, well they have a NAME ON THEM. Any who, I can not see spending more then 10 to 12 bucks for one out fit for a growing child that will be out of it in a few months. I wouldn't mind buying Caitlin more expensive stuff, knowing that Zoe could wear it later on, if her size / season matches up, which most of the time it does.

Saturday, I was outside. Doing what? I am not sure, but I spent a lot of time sitting in our new patio chairs.

Sunday, I vac'ed up 100's of stupid box elder beetles that find living on our house fun. We have these black spots on our outside walls, but when you take a closer look, its the damn bugs. So away I went with my shop vac! My husband was nice enough to clean the water out of the vac, and replace the filters! He also secured our gutters with the brackets that I had to buy. They were just blowing in the breeze, well NOT ANYMORE!

What will I do tomorrow? Who knows, probably laundry, and be outside!!!!

Slow news

I never thought of my blog as being "cutting edge", or "first in line" or anything, but when I posted our pictures of East Park, I did not know that I was ahead of the local news station. "Tonight at 10, we will see the damage done by ice in East Park" ...

lots to do

Yesterday was beautiful outside. The temp was any where from 47 to 53. I tried to do as much outside as I possibly could. I picked up some dog poop that has been collecting since the first big snow fall, along with some cig butts too. I took some of the staples out of the pillars that are holding up the Christmas lights. I needed to put down some "non skid" stuff on the steps but the temp did not reach above 50 until after I picked up Caitlin from school, and by then, I forgot about it. lol oops

Ok I know remember why I do not clean with bleach / water mixture. The bleach smell gets to me so bad that my nose burns all the way down to my lungs, and it gives me a massive headache! I did not use the bleach, it was the people around me. We were out at the bar (Vibrations) on a cleaning mission to get things ... well... clean. I had to leave to get some fresh air, but even that did not help. I ended up having to come home and laid down. Four hours later, my head is still hurting.

Yesterday, I figured out what was wrong with my website when I previewed it. It took the clicking of one little check box to make things look pretty. Still working on it to get the rest of the bugs out, and well my perfectionism is sort of taking over in that area.

I am so happy tomorrow is Monday. I feel like Monday's are my "fresh start" of the week. I have not been doing well sticking to my routines, which is causing a messy house, and an even more messy brain. So if I can keep on track tomorrow, the rest of the week will be a breeze.

Speaking of breezes, Mondays forecast is 61 degrees!! WOOT! How bout that! TAKE THAT SNOW! hehe

Heat wave

Wow it was 39 degrees outside today. The snow is melting and the puddles are getting deeper. I love it! I can not wait to play outside in the grass and flower beds. I want to plant pretty flowers! (and i hate flowers.) Spring is ALMOST here according to the calender and the weather!


Ive been busy today in Photoshop trying to make pretty things to sell on my website that I can not get up and running. I am having technical difficulties on the building part of it... Some of my graphics are not transferring nicely.

So Tuesday is late start. Not only is it late start tomorrow, its also early dismissal because it is the "make up" conference day. So I get to bring Caitlin to school at 9am, and pick her up at 12:15. What kind of crap is that?? Its not MY fault that school was canceled Thursday (original early dismissal day) and Friday! Hopefully they will use their "make up day" on Friday the 23rd, or she will have the 22nd thru April 2nd.
