Book Club Meeting!!

So....the book club meeting went really good. Kim and Kassandra where the only two that could make it but we had fun anyways. We decided on Persuasion by Jane Austen for our next book. I am really excited about it. I am going to pick it up on Monday and I am hoping that Barnes and Noble has it in their classic book section. They are cheaper there and they are really nice books. We had some drinks and some fudge bars that I had made and I sent some home for Dad and Ty and some for Mikey too. Phil got the rest in his lunch and I am trying to get the kids to eat the rest otherwise.....I will eat them all. I have no self control when it comes to chocolate. Well, I hope you guys are happy about the book. Let me know if you have any ideas for the next one. Happy reading!!!

Spring is in the air....lah lah lah lah!! I LOVE Spring and even more so Summer!!!!! I was so excited today to see that it was forty degrees and melting a little. The deck that we just shoveled yesterday is almost dry already.....YAY!!! I got my laundry done and folded and putaway. I got dinner made and already have plans for in the morning. I am working on small projects as far as cleaning goes. Phil got a whole bunch done yesterday. He helped me put up the bunk bed downstairs so that Dad can sleep on it. He got the shower caulked and the toilet siliconed. It needed to be done for about three years. He got the house free of webs and dust. He helped me move the cradle to the shed and put the crib in Jonny's new room. We moved Sabre and Jonny in one room and Jesse and Davy are in the other. It is working out quite well. Jonny will be on the couch for a week and Sabre will be upstairs with us but that will be great. We shoveled the deck and worked out together. We also got the bathrooms cleaned and vacuuming done.....OH,,,,and Phil made dinner which was delicious. He is the sweetest Hubby EVER!!!! See you all at church tonight. Love you!!!!

Getting it together!!!

Well, I haven't been getting everything done that i've needed to and now with Spring.....well,,,,,I have lots of OTHER things I would like to get done and cleaned. I have accomplished a lot the last couple of weeks and now I am getting a schedule done to help me better accomplish my weekly chores. Phil helped me get quite a bit done today and it was a blessing. I still have a few things I would like him to help me with and he seems more than happy. Anyways, it has been a blessing having him home and I am not ready for him to get back to work but I know it will be fine. Have a great day and happy spring cleaning!!!

Four Days with Phil....

Phil got home o.k. last night and we talked for awhile and then crashed. We were both tired. I don't sleep good at all when he's gone and he has had a long week. We now have four days together before he has to go back to work. We went to the Tozier's yesterday and the kids played all day while Dawn and I talked. It was a lot of fun and she helped me out a lot with some homeschooling stuff. We got home around six and had some dinner and the kids played the Wii for awhile. I got some stuff cleaned up before Phil got home. We are just hanging out today and I think Phil is going to grill some steaks for dinner tonight and Allen and Tasha may come over but we'll see. They haven't called back yet. Anyways, I just thought you would like to know Phil was home and he has two certificates for The Reid Technique of Interviewing and Interrogation. The other one was his Advanced Course Certificate for the same technique. Have a great weekend!!

Book Club!!

I rescheduled the book club for next Thursday....Same time and everything. Kassandra was going out of town for the weekend I wanted her to be there. It also worked out better with my girls night. We are watching The Sisterhood of The Traveling Pants 1 and 2 tonight. We are ordering Pagoda and have Ben and Jerry's afterwards. I am rethinking the ice cream after looking at my pictures on the Biggest Loser Blog. Anyways. I am excited about doing this and I think I am going to make a tradition out of it. I am going to do this every other month and any girls that want to come are more than welcome. We will do something different every time. Maybe next time it will be bowling or just out to dinner. Maybe even volleyball and a picnic when it warms up. Exciting huh. Anyways!!! This book club one turned out to be a different post altogether. See you!

Book Club!!!

So....I hope eveyone remembers that there's a meeting on Thursday the 19th. @ 7:00 p.m. here at my house. I will have a list of three books that we will choose from to be our next book. I think it will be a better idea that way and if you have any suggestions bring a list. I am going to make some coffee and tea and maybe some dessert. I am very excited and hope you won't mind my house being messy as I will be painting that week. I am hoping to have at least the upstairs in some sort of order. We'll see!! Can't wait!

I missed Hawaii before I even left and believe it or not Phil LOVED Hawaii. We are planning to go back as often as possible in our lifetime. Maybe that's being a little extreme but that's how much we loved it. I was ready to be back there this morning. Our trip went great and we are REALLY tired today. Phil is going to lay down and take a nap with the boys in just a few minutes. I took a nap earlier this morning while Phil watched the boys. Anyways, I am going to post pictures in a few days. Love ya!!
