I'm not going CRAZY, I'm already there!!

It's been a while since I posted but I haven't had much time to just sit at the computer. I have been so busy preparing for our school's Fall Festival that I haven't thought about many other things. We are all most ready to begin putting down our laminate floors and finishing up that project. I will be thrilled when it is all over. I really am about to loose my mind- just too much going on. I am up to 16 girls in my Brownie troop and they just keep signing up, agggghhhh! I am really excited to have such a great group of girls, I thought about turning it in to two troops but they all are good girls and I can't decide which ones I would get rid of so I guess they are all going to be mine. Our next meeting is a week from tomorrow and I need to plan something that will keep all of the girls busy, I think we will do something related to Thanksgiving. That is all I can write for now so I will post later!

Pumpkin Patch

Today, Merrick and I went to Wemple's Pumpkin Patch with Maddison's 1st grade class. It was alot of fun we picked pumpkins, went on a hay ride, saw farm animals and played. I had even more fun because I went with the Brewers, they are always fun to be around. The Pumpkin Patch donated 20 pumpkins to PTA so Steven and I went and picked them, that was the highlight of my day (*snicker snicker*) It was a fun filled day and I am tired but I still have tap class tonight, hopefully I have the energy to move my feet.

Holy Cow!!

Holy Cow, I didn't realize what an undertaking this remodeling thing would be! I have been painting, pulling up carpet, pulling up tack strips and painting some more! I want it to be over but it seems to be neverending. My kiddos have been neglected during this process, they have been forced to play by themselves (GASP)!!
The kids want to help us tonight and they are into everything, it was easier to get things done today when they went over to Denise's house (THANK YOU Denise!!) I got alot done today and I am seeing a faint light at the end of the tunnel. We are hoping to begin putting down the hardwood floors this coming weekend and then we will be almost done.

I got happy mail on Friday!! It was my Halloween jar of whimsy. Steph rocked this swap, she went above and beyond the requirements of the swap! We were all so thankful for the Halloween goodies, the kids loved their felt puppets, Mike and I loved our goodie bags and I loved all my scrapbook goodies. It was decorated so SPOOKILY- it was AWESOME!! Thank you Stephanie!!

On another note, we are getting so close to being done with all of the painting and getting ready to begin laying new flooring. I am so excited to have all of this done, it will look great! I will post pictures of it all when we are finished!

Sorry, I haven't been able to post for a while. I am busy trying to plan a "Fall Festival" for our schools PTA. I think it is so silly that we can't call it a Halloween carnival, I really don't care if people are offended by the word "Halloween," they are more than welcome to stay home if they don't want their children participating in a "Halloween" carnival. It drives me crazy that we are forced to make everybody happy by being P.C. Why can't we have a CHRISTMAS break anymore....? Sure, we have a Winter break but what is so wrong with the word Christmas? Same goes for Easter, it's no longer Easter vacation, it's now Spring Break!! Maybe we should have school over these school breaks so those that think these words to be blasphamas can continue to go to school and let those of us who believe have our "Christmas" breaks!!
I am going to spend some time tonight watching paint dry..HAHA! Actually, I am going to be painting the hall and start on the ceiling, sounds fun!! I am so excited for this project to be over!! I want my floors in and I want everything painted but I really don't want to do the work that goes along with it.
I'm off to paint.. Have a great evening.

What a DAY!!

Today was rough!! Maddison came with in inches of getting hit by a car, she ran out into the street from a blind spot and the gal in the car was going slow (Thank GOD) she hit her brakes just in time and avoided hitting Maddi by mere inches! I spent my morning crying and freaked out because it really shook me up. I was worthless at work because I was drained and when I came home to tell my husband about it he basically told me that if I would have watched her closer that wouldn't have happened! He made me feel really small! We had a talk with Maddi this afternoon about street safety and making sure that you look both ways before you dart out into the street, not sure she got it but I hope she did.
I had my tap dance class tonight and boy, it's hard! I am so uncordinated but it is still alot of fun. There are alot of fun girls in my class and it is always an enjoyable hour.
Still nothing fun in the mail-BUMMER!! Maybe tommorrow, when I get what I am waiting for I will not only post pics but I will also explain my obsession.
Till tommorrow,
