House Update!

So, we finally got the boiler in and working. Well, it was working.....we were cutting our cedar boards for our window sills and we think it clogged up the boiler or something. So, we are calling a boiler guy to come tune it for us. It needed done anyways, just more money. We are working on flooring and plumbing right now and Phil is over getting the HRV system finished. It's down to the end stuff now and it is pretty fun working on it all. I helped do a bunch of the wiring and was getting pretty good at it, though my fingers didn't agree.

I am looking forward to seeing the tiling get done around my bathtub and will be posting pictures of the finished project pretty soon. The carpet people are coming out tomorrow to measure so we can get the carpet ordered and they should be out to install it while Phil is gone in a couple of weeks. Josh is going to come over soon and get the phone lines finished up so that will be another thing off the list. Let's see.....what else? Well, pretty much when Phil gets home we should be moving in and it will just be a matter of staining doors and hanging trim. I am SUPER excited. In a month we should be moved in!!! So, while Phil's gone I'm going to be packing and cleaning and organizing. I may even take a little trip down to see my parents for a week. We'll see.....Phil is pretty overprotective about me going down there by myself with the kids. It kind of all depends on what I need to be doing here. With Dana having her baby and things getting done at the house. We'll see!!! Just praying about it and waiting to see what happens! So, just a little update and like I said. I will be posting pictures after some more stuff starts getting done!

Bek's Apron!

Here's the apron I made for Rebekah! I am going to send it this week after I get some other things put together! It turned out pretty cute and I can't wait to do some other projects. My wall hanging quilt for one! We'll see if that happens or not!

A New Year....A New Me?

Are you one of those people that makes New Year Resolutions every year and never sticks to them? I am (and it took a lot for me to admit it). Life is busy as a Mom of four boys and a Wife who gets called Super Woman. I am a busy person....I LIKE to be busy. It gets over whelming sometimes and I get to the point I don't want to do ANYTHING. I guess that's what's wrong with me....I'm an All or Nothing person. Haha!

I decided that this year things are going to be different. I have a goal in mind for weight loss but instead of shooting for that goal I am just shooting to workout five days a week. I have organization goals but decided this year I would shoot for just getting moved into the new house and getting rid of a bunch of junk we never use! I think I can accomplish that easy enough. I have spiritual goals in mind also and those are going to stay's easier to accomplish them when you're telling the LORD about it instead of everyone else!

I also decided that I need a new schedule. I am a morning person for the most part and I have to say I have already failed miserably at the getting up early part this week. Phil on the other hand is doing great. I plan on starting first thing tomorrow and following through. I may need my cup o joe right away but I think he will forgive me! I'm going to be more creative this year and I am going to sew more. Anyways, I was just doing a little musing and decided that I can make all the New Year's Resolutions I want but unless I CHOOSE to do these things they will never happen. So , I am working on a few things but not a billion like usual. Can't wait to see what the New Year holds! Happy 2011!!!!
