It All Evens Out


Last night I heard yelling from my bedroom. “Hey! I accidentally paused the TV! How do I fix it?!” I couldn’t believe it was my husband asking this ridiculous question, but I went ahead and answered him. “Push play” I said. “It’s not working, I tried;” he carried on and on until he said “come fix it!”

“UMMMMMM NOOOOO! I’m pretty busy in here!”  Read the rest of this entry


Going Back


Well it’s official. Summer is OVER! Today the weather will still be a scorching 100° outside, but the focus has shifted. Instead of getting ready for a picnic or a jump in the pool, we’ll be doing homework and heading out for football practice. Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely LOVE summer vacation.

I love sleeping in a little later, planting flowers together, having lunch in the park, but let me tell you, having the ZooCrew home all day everyday is a lot of really hard work. My poor refrigerator actually posted it’s own “Thank You” note on the door this morning. It said “Have a great first day of school kids, I will enjoy keeping my doors closed for the next 8 hours.” My front door said “Omgoodness, I won’t be opened 14 times an hour today.” and the cold air added “I might actually be able to stay inside.” Meanwhile the washer and dryer were breathing huge sighs of relief. “They can’t change clothes ten times if they’re at school!”

Personally I’m going to miss the knock-down drag-out wars over whether we are watching Disney Jr or Gone in 60 Seconds. When I get in the car to run to Wal-Mart I won’t be sure how to handle the silence.

Now where were we?


Routine is slowly retuning to my life! The kids are back in school. The house is undecorated. I spent two days cleaning the house from their weeks of winter break! By Wednesday I texted my mother and said “I may be in the Twilight Zone! The laundry is done, the dishes are done, and the house is clean!” So she responded: “Look under the beds.”  Yep, leave it to my mom to remind me of just exactly where the messes must be hiding.  Oh well, at least the part I can see looked good. I even finished tiling and grouting my back splash.

I’ve only been waiting for about 7 months for the hubby to help me finish the remodel of our kitchen. Finally I took matters into my own hands! I must say, I’m pretty impressed with myself. I even learned how to use the wet saw. But it never fails, as soon as I get things together, this family takes them all apart. Read the rest of this entry
