Saturday tidbits


As a mother I have been able to teach my children so many things. for instance, the proper way to put on a life jacket...


And i have also seen my children teach each other, like here for instance, when Haley is pointing out to Gillian her eye...



We also have to be aware of our surroundings, this next picture is a tornado drill, and my girls really liked this one, until they out grew it...


Blogger is being funny i am having trouble uploading pictures. Hey i installed a door knob yesterday!! it is saturday so i can have some bread. wes is working so i have time to stop by and blog today.

i am not feeling well, yesterday was Wes's clean date he celebrated 19 years in recovery, the girls and i got some balloons at the dollar store and some low carb ice cream and some streamer to put up in the house. then we went to a meeting. today i feel congested and have a slight headache. hopefully i won't get as sick as "A" did. hey i just looked and i posted a blog everyday this week, wow. i am grateful my mind is able to be clear and finish a thought process. i have not heard from the fire marshal yet, i am not sure if i have the energy to paint in the kitchen, there are some spots Wes put some tape on and putty, i think it is sanded but the grain from the tape is coming through so i think he will need to reputty. i have halloween lights to put up still.

i am going to make some orange rosemary pork chops for dinner. i will make me some whole wheat toast this morning and have some coffee, maybe i will get to the gym in a bit. for now i think i will take it easy and play with my girls, they love the mylar balloons. have a great day all!! thanks to everybody who stopped by and left me a comment yesterday!! i really look forward to reading them!!
