Only 4 weeks left! YAHOO!!!!!!!

Well, I apologize for not blogging, wow, I didn't realize it had been this long. I spent the whole week before Memorial Day helping dear hubby get his construction jobs done. Also, we decided to go to the beach for the Holiday week-end. So, after working with him, we packed for our trip. It was a long week before, but then we left Thursday and it was glorious. The days were beautiful and it wasn't crowded. We always go to Long Beach, Wa. it tends to be more family friendly.

HEATHER, no we are not in Disneyland yet. I will let you know when, I can't wait. I am looking forward to these next 4 weeks of making lists, packing, making lists, shopping, going over the yet again new list, getting the motorhome ready. I am so excited.

Well, today I got all the laundry from the vacation washed and folded, not yet put away. But in time. I am very happy though, usually we come back from a trip like this, and it takes me a week to get the Suburban cleaned out, cleaning out the food bins, and getting the clothes bins done, but, my SWEET husband stayed by my side yesturday and helped me unload it all. What an amazing feeling. And what a tremendous blessing from my man!!!

Okay, now I have to get over to all your blogs and try to catch up.

Blessings to you all!

The Mickey head below somehow made itself a post of its own.

What I meant to say under the first post today was that I made DISNEY autograph books for the girls.



No, this is not the spider that bitt my daughter. But, she did get a bite, and she had a horrible reaction to the bite. She had this visitor last friday evening. She told me about it
I thought it was just a mosquito bite, so i did pay much attention to it. But, then it kept getting bigger and she finally said she couldn't deal with it anymore. We ended up in the Urgent Care and waited for 2 hours. Confirming my thoughts that she had a reaction.
Now, me personally, I love spiders, I am in awe of the beautiful webs they spin. They are very fascinating to me. And coming from Arizona, I have seen my share of scarey spiders, Jolene knows what I am talking about. So the Northwest spiders do not scare me at all. My family is scared to death of spiders. I understand.
Well, got all 4 of the girls' autograph books finished. If I had my camera, I would show the pictures of them. But, hubby is out of town and has my camera. They turned out so cute. I am proud of the books, if I may boast for a moment. Kay the moment is up.
Well, I have laundry to do, and a pot-roast to get into the oven. Blessings everyone!

I had a beautiful Mothers' Day

I hope you all had a wonderful Mothers' Day. I did. We went to a town 2 hours away from us, to a small small town called Glenwood. We always tease that only 8 people live there.
We had a family reunion for my Father-In-Laws sie of the family. His two sisters and there families. We have the youngest kids so it was alot of fun to see all the older children mingle with mine.
My F-I-L youngest sister who is about 69, her husband is a cancer survivor. They together had 4 children. 3 girls and 1 boy. They lost their oldest daughter to cancer when she was in her late 30's. And the other two daughters are cancer survivors. And now, the oldest granddaughter herself is now battling cancer(her mother is the one who past away) So, this family is amazing to me, just the love and encouragement they give to all the see and know. I am always blessed by this family. We get together with this group every mothers day. So for me, I always go away with a lesson on this day, of how precious life and family are.

I must make a confession to you all, the reason we did so well in our garage sale is because we own a contruction business and we sold extra materials we don't use. we sold doors, windows, sheet rock, etc. And I had kids clothes, dishes, books, homeschool stuff, so I believe our greatest seller was the materials.

I just want to thank everyone for their sweet comments and wishes for me and my family. You are all such an amazing group of women. I am honored to get to know you all!

I must go, today we get another 80' day, gotta get summer like things done, because rain is back in the forcast for the rest of my week.
Blessings to you all!

Allergies, chores and a garage sale

Okay, i see I have had a hard time blogging. I did have two girls with head colds, and then I got it, oh the allergy pressure in the head is no fun. But, the upside of all of this is....we are finally having spring weather. And, in the middle of my head thing I decided to do weeding in the yard, I paid for that for a couple more days.

We have 49 days until we leave for our Disney Trip. We decided to have a garage sale to pay for the gas we will use for the trip. Gas here is $3.30 a gallon here, I think it has become a sin.
We did make $500 though, and I will have the garage sale again this week-end.

And the chores, well as I was cleaning closets out for garage sale stuff, I realized everything needed a good "spring" cleaning. Still working on that one.

Thank you ladies for your sweet wishes. We are all fine now, and getting our week under way.
Oh, I also got my older girls' homeschooling stuff into motion for 07 and 08 school year. Feels good to have that taken care of.
