I thought I'd drop in to let you know what we've been up to lately.
Well, at least that's what this funny girl, below tells everybody.
Yes, "we all got's new glasses". Everyone except for Cason...
As he states, "His eyes are perfect" and I'm the one to blame for the blindness, in this crazy gaggle of girls.
ugh. ya, it's sad, but true. lol
Thank goodness for killer eye insurance, because 3 kids, 1 Mom, 2 trips to the eye doctor and lots of $,$$$ later (yes, there's a comma in those dollar signs)... we no longer have ANY "flex" in our "spending". ehhmmm.
Well, maybe I should say LAWN work.
After last years headache with grass, sprinklers, patios and curbing... Cason threw his hands up in the air and told me that if I wanted a pretty green lawn and a well maintained yard this year, it was up to ME!
So after some bartering (he now does ALL the houses DEEP cleaning, and ironically LOVES it) I took this challenge on, head first.
2 bags of weed & feed, 3 bags of Ironite and 1 SUPER sore Mom, later.
I'm happy to report that these past two months have been green, lush, and weed free!
Not to mention, I'm pretty sure that I lose about 5 pounds worth of body weight from the enormous amounts of sweat I shed mowing each Saturday. whew! This keepin'-up-a-big-yard stuff ain't for weaklings!
I'm getting excited also, because now that my boring ol' flower beds are weed free, I'm sending over these pictures to my amazing sister in law, who specializes in yard design! She's going to "pimp this yard out!"
More to come later...
I know. I failed miserably at Spring decorating this year. But Summer?
Well, I've been workin'!!!
Can't wait to show you all the things I've done around here!
It's slow, but steady.
The master bathroom got a wall full of molding today.
Now comes the
awful fun part. LOTS of nail holes to fill, cracks to caulk, and painting to do.
As you can see, we aren't short of places to spend our money or projects to work on, around here.
We definitely have things this summer to keep us busy...
Not to mention the occasional "trip" to Grandma's Instacare:
All I have to say is:
wearing swim goggles on your eyes, running at the pool, while wrapped up like a mummy in a towel...
is probably NOT the best idea.
Although, it's those (now shattered) goggles on those little peepers that probably saved this kiddo from a more sever head injury, then 15 little stitches.
Here's hoping that YOUR Summer is being filled with
lots of eventful (yet a bit safer) happenings too!
