Well i'm up early so i'll start. I have a TON of stuff to get done today before it rains. Hopefully find some fencing before it rains for the garden (have to keep the turkey's, dog and cats out :giggle: ) run to town to get more velcro, try and get a bunch of orders finished...we have been on a roll the past couple days. Hopefully by monday i will have put a pretty good dent in my waiting list, as long as i keep going and don't get exhuasted/lazy again (ever couple of day I end up having a day i just read all day:blush: )
Off to get some breakfast! maybe CBL, if the day allows:giggle: :goodvibes:

Good morning! DH is out for a run and it is supre chilli here, I had to turn on the heat and we haven't had to do that for a few weeks. We have tomatoes and peppers to plant. This afternoon we are going to spend some time with friends then DH and I are going to leave DD with those friends and go together to see the new Star Trek movie! I have seen it once but not with DH. We rarely get date nights so we are happy. I am still having morning/all day sickness but am trying to keep my head up. Have a great day gals!

Busy busy day for us today! Dh and I are going to the landscape/greenhouse to get some dirt, pick up some landscape ties, grab a few groceries to bake FIL a birthday cake, build a raised corner flower bed, de-winterize the trailer, aerate the lawn, and then we're heading to see a movie together. Ok, so dh is doing most of the work, as he's super protective about how much I do, but I'll still be busy busy too.

I am having a busy day, but also a lazy day too! Lazy because the day is just about over and I haven't done anything yet, and buzy because I wasted all my time being lazy!
We are going to the zoo tomorrow which is about 3 hours away. We want to be out of the house by 7:00am so I have to have everything all packed up today. We usually just buy are food there but it is expensive so I am going to pack a lunch, which I have to go buy everything for today. Plus I need to bath the kids and I need a shower before it's bedtime.
I convinced DH to make me bacon and eggs for dinner tonight. I can't wait!

Okay I can barely function. I went to d-land yesterday for my ds2's 6th birthday. Today I feel like I have been hit by a truck. It was fun but I'm exhausted. I'll write more when I can operate like a normal human being.

Today was a busy day, yet I'm not tired at all. It's now sunday at 12:42 am, and I'm still awake. I'm a night owl. I think any peace and solitude I can find during the day or night is my quiet time.
Tomorrow I'm going to go to open houses. Our house isn't up for sale yet, but I want to see what's out there, and what we want in a new house. We're also going to get the boys 2 turtles tomorrow. Caleb fell asleep on the back porch today watching his rolly pollys. Since he's taking such good care of his backyard bugs, we thought it was time to get him his very own pet.

morning ladies. I have house plans today. laundry, planting my garden, doing dishes, etc. It always amazes me how fast things sell on craigslist. I listed all of my cute girl shoes that dont fit dd anymore. I was saving them for this baby and he won't look cute in girlie shoes. lol... Anyways, we need money to buy boy things so i am not saving most of my girl things for 'if we end up having another kid.' I know that it was a really good deal that i listed, 23 pairs of shoes like robeez, umis, crocs, elefatins, see kai run, pedipeds, and other high quality brands. I listed them mostly for $5/pair besides the euc shoes. or buy the whole lot for $125. within 15 minutes I had the whole lot sold to a lady with 10 month old twins. I now have my email and voicemail flooded for the shoes as well. I knew it was a good deal, but all but 2 pairs i bought used and in the end, i am making about the same that i paid for all of the shoes. I didnt want to be greedy, i just wanted the shoes to sell. I did the same for a bunch of large gads, knickernappies, blueberry diapers. I ended up selling 12 diapers for $80. Its a great deal, but that is what i paid for the diapers and i used them for almost a year. I love buying used and then being able to use the items only to sell them for the same price and still pass on a really great deal. Now I have $200 set aside to buy baby things i will need. ;-) now i'm looking throughout the house to see what else i can sell. hmmm..... lol.....

Its been a busy gardening weekend for us.... Yesterday we created a new flower bed around one of the trees and let Sarah pick out all the flowers. It took us 2 hours to plant everything and I am so sore today!! Dh is outside now with Sarah putting down the mulch.
We also hit some fab garage sales yesterday and I was able to find a really nice bouncy seat and the cradle swing (http://www.fisher-price.com/fp.aspx?st=2004&e=product&pid=30548) along with some clothes YAY! I finally feel like we are making progress with our baby gear!
And I swear my pg brain is really doing a number on me.... I sent a purchase to a house we haven't lived in in over 2 yrs..... the sad part is I had to select that address in Paypal LOL its not even the one that auto populates. I swear my brain cells are shrinking as this baby grows :giggle2: Thankfully it wasn't an expensive purchase!

It has been super busy here! We had a b-day party for my little guy yesterday. It was wonderful! My mother flew in for the party and I loved her company. We went to a 3-D ultrasound in the afternoon for a gender check.....and IT'S A GIRL! My Mom also watched the boys so DH and I could go out to dinner last night. We enjoyed a lovely night at the new Indian restaurant. I so love Indian food! Today we hit the thrift stores before my Mom had to catch a flight back home. I'm so sad she is gone. It was a fabulous weekend!
Now...I'm just preparing for next weekend when the in-laws visit.
