I have a new lo swirling in my head...and today is the day to get it done for the apron contest....
i have SO much personal growth to do .... and I feel like I have done it all; however, am not even close to what I want to be - I am feeling "perfect" as I am now ... I do know that ... as for the goals... they are CTMH .... my children .... i need to quit nitpicking so much .... and wanting perfection when I am not there myself ... so what if they can't wash the dishes like me, vacuum like me, clean up (in general) like me.... but they can LAFF and have FUN like me!!!! & wear that smile with pride! :)
I want to learn to stop the demanding of them ... and accept them for who and what they stand for! Love unconditionally .... (*coughs*) No more yelling 'cuz something was not done RIGHT THEN and THERE cuz I asked ... (I don't get things done right when I want it done either!) *lol*
Remember ... Choose Your Battles mama! :)
Which brings me to my Apron Challenge...here is my entry
Been super busy @ home .... did major cleaning the past two weeks ;) House is awesome now! :)
Just got back home Thursday nite from my business trip
in Kamloops - had a BLAST with my SIL...she truly is a wonderful soul that woman! :)
Going to clean up my "area" and put the things away n' start doing my work for my classroom ... I am super excited but sad 'cuz I am not going to be home with the kids everyday :( *lol*
I went in to get the "test" done yesterday *lol* ;) "it" was "-" ;) Yay eh? I truly would have been HAPPY; however, it would not been great timing! hahaha :)
I am just popping in to say hello!
I don't get too much time for reading anymore .... :( I
really want to start again so I can finish the 2nd book ...
I am near done ... prob an hour left or so .... if even that ... then I am going to start Eclipse ;) hahah....I should just savor the books ...they truly are wonderful!!!!
Oh ... I am going to be redecorating my UGLY house! It is time to get going with the house...I was wondering if any of you can share your ideas with me to fix it up so it doesn't look so hobo-ish *lol* and is fit for my family .... babyz in mind ;)
thanks in advance for dropping by ... sorry my thoughts are all rambled.... talk soon everyone!
My DD is just going thru a milestone in her life right now! I am NOT too sure how to take this!!! She is MY BABY GIRLER!!!! :O She was VERY brave when she came to me! (I am SO proud of her!) We just hugged and cried for a few minutes .... I have been telling her of this for the past year .... getting her ready ... so she knew what to do! :)
I told her EVERYTHING there is to know ;) *sighs*
that is the excitement for the nite (yesterday) lol
In all honesty - I truly have grown a lot with the Bad Girls assistance .... I cannot fathom the things I have learned without being in awe everyday I scrap ... some days I hoard galore n' do NOT want to waste my stash! LOL!!! I finally got out of the ..."what if I need it for ...." frame of mind.....
On the BG Site I posted a thread that asks for a link and state what they liked about my LO ... I have a RAK to mail out for the winner of this thread :) I am going to be giving stuff from my stash n' NOT just ANY OL' things... FROM MY BG KITS! :)
Well, things are getting pretty hectic at home here as I get things back in order...and TRYING to put our family back on a schedule .... school starts pretty quick here! (Work starts next week for me ... n' then ... the kids are back in school!) Seems SO FAR away yet it is SO CLOSE in reality! lol
DD's are switching roomz ... they are NOT happy with their rooms ... so we are busy doing that ... I am getting all the main roomz cleaned up and rearranging ... did the kitchen today ... and dining room ... living room .... have the bathrooms tomorrow ...and get all the linens done ... OMG I am goin nuts!! But it will be well worth it when it is all done!
DS had his room finished lickety split already! He was on a mission and did it! Proud of him :)
He just has to finish his laundry and put it away :)
DD's are SO lazy! They can't even collect the JUNK n' GARBAGE in their rooms let alone their laundry .... they are the struggle to get things done ... if they don't get going and done they are looking forward to grounding! lol
Well, in a few days I am going to be heading to my workshops.... that is going to be a LONG time away from my family! chuck...the babies...the kids! WHOA! 6 days away from'em....
ugh! Gonna be lonely! (Wish Chuck could come)....
Thatz all thatz goin on with me today ... I am going to try to make an attempt to update everyday here .... (my own personal goal) ... so I can just copy and paste for my journaling on any lo's I do) :)
Well - take care everyone and thank you for coming by to see what I am up to :)
Okay - I have been trying different things and this is what I have been coming up with ... I have been using my cricut much more these days :) I am letting go of the fear of running out of things n' hoarding ... I am just going for it! :) Here they are ...
