Don't eat too much candy or you'll feel like crap tomorrow. I ate the little candy bars at work on Monday and on Tuesday I wished I hadn't.

Our Home

Okay, more than anything I love being at home. I love my house clean and I am very into all different kinds of good smelling soy candles which I have all over the house. Just thought I would give a tour of my home. Grandma, this is mostly for you since you have not been able to come and see where we live. You can click on the pictures to see them larger. The bedroom pictures turned out kinda dark but you can see from outside that it is a beautiful day Sunday in Seattle. Our back yard faces the greenbelt so it is nice to have the trees. Rachel is outside singing Bon Jovi's You Give Love a Bad Name while she waters the this my child or

Slave Driver

Today I got the kids up early and got them busy cleaning. I have a whole list of things for them to do that will keep them busy for a long time. It is only going to be 54 today so they can stay inside and help mom. I started them with the car which is quite clean and smells fresh.

Just got interrupted by a phone call from a gal doing a survey for the 2008 election. All of my answers were democratic and George Bush needs to be out of the office asap if you ask me.

3. Leaving the toilet seat up...hmmmm I wonder who does that
4. Throwing clean clothes in the laundry just so they won't have to be folded or put away

Pumpkin Farm 07

Carleton Farms is just about two minutes from our house and is our annual pumpkin patch visit. We take the hay ride into the fields and get our pumpkins for Halloween, see the animals and watch them shoot pumpkins out of a cannon. Each year our neighbors have an all day pumpkin carving party and we just love it. We spend the whole day carving, dancing, eating yummy foods and then when it gets dark we put all the pumpkins together and light them. We have gotten some great pictures over the years. The party is next weekend so we will go out this week and get some cool designs.

The funny things they say...

Rachel informed me today that there were two Rachel's because she met one at McDonalds once. I reminded her that she had a friend Rachel that worked at Starbucks. (yes I know it's pathetic that my child has friends at Starbucks). So anyway, she said there were only three Rachel's and I told her there were Rachel's all over the world. She paused for a minute and said, yes there are lots in China, Africa and the Soviet Reunion and that did I know that the Soviet Reunion was in Europe. HA HA HA

NO alarm today

I have the day off work today and I just woke up-yee haw!!! Every morning my alarm goes off at 3:30, I get up by 4 and am at work by 5 so sleeping until 9 is a major treat. My body is so happy!!! It's payday so I guess I should pay the bills. I will be broke my 10am.

Hope everyone has a great weekend

Amusement park

I'm in the need of a serious rollercoaster ride. Scary, fast & high on the puke meter is really what I yearn for right now. Five times in a row would be good and then I'd like to have 2 bites of a corndog(can't handle the whole thing) with ketchup, french fries and ice cream. Does this sound like something my trainer would approve of-NO!!!!!

I love games

I am completely addicted to online boggle. We used to play the board game at home all the time when I was a kid. I bought the game a couple of weeks ago and Lindsey just loves it. However, playing the computer version is fun but it really annoys me to see all the words I missed after the time is up. If you like boggle the address is

Happy Birthday My Little Girl

Rachel turns 5 today and I can't believe it. At 1:50am five years ago today I was yelling at everyone to get this kid out of me.-30 hours of labor will do that. In this picture she was eating tootsie rolls after searching for Easter eggs-several years ago. Mike will be taking her to school today and she is so excited because the teacher makes a big deal out of everyone's birthdays. Last night Mike and I did our present shopping and got cupcakes for her class today. Mike is picking her up for a lunch date as well so she will be so excited and surprised. Her birthday party will be on Saturday and this is Fall in Seattle to it will probably rain but who cares. Much love and happiness today to my little Boo.
