I didn’t blog yesterday. Did anyone notice? By the time I remembered, I was tucked into bed about to doze off. I didn’t have anything important to write about anyway. Not that I ever do, but hey…I promise I’d write, so that’s what I’m doing.

I did a lot of cleaning today. Nothing better than putting a new vacuum bag in and just going crazy. The kids asked at least 4 times “Are you done yet?” No way!!! I’m vacuuming everything…can’t you see that!? I love a clean house and fresh Scentsy. I also had a chance to get some card making in. I was having a little trouble figuring out what to do today. I knew I needed to make a few cards, but nothing was really jumping out at me. I started this card and ended up taking a break half way. I just wasn’t feeling it. Sometimes, I just have to walk away for a few hours (or even the night) and come back to it.

This is what I ended up with.

brithdayThis card took way to long to make. It’s like I was in slow motion. I have 3 other cards that I need to work on this week. I’m hoping I’ll have some free time tomorrow to get those started. I need another birthday and 2 get well cards. Wish me luck! Jerms is off tomorrow, so we should have plenty of time to create. His desk is in the same room as my crafts, so as I’m crafting he does his drawing/painting. It’s been really nice to have that time together.

I’m making an apple cake tomorrow. Jerms loves it. I think I’ll share the recipe with you tomorrow night. It’s super easy and you probably already have everything to make it. Have a great Monday!

Hello friends. What a wonderful Saturday.

*Here’s a few fun facts about my day*

Our weather was perfect.

I got my grocery shopping done.

Cleaned house a little bit.

Jerms did some woodworking in the garage.

Kids are off having fun with Mimi and Nannie.

Had a nice dinner with Jerms plus a few others.

Saw a friend from high school that I hadn’t seen in years.

Tried to FaceTime with the boys, but they are having too much fun to talk with mom!!

I still need to fold the last load of laundry. I hate folding laundry. Unless it’s towels….Those are quick and painless.

Spent good quality time with my granny.

No running today. Off until Monday. I am not complaining about that. I am enjoying the break.

I feel like a had a pretty successful day.

I still need to get some work done on the magazine.

Thanks for following and reading my daily blogs!

Hello all! It’s Wednesday and our week is half way over!! I am so ready for the weekend. Not that I have big plans. I mean…Jerms and I may run to Sams Club! Oh yea!!! Sounds like an exciting time.

Guess what? I finally got my wedding ring back on! This is the first time since the wreck (5 months) that I’ve been able to wear it. My finger is still swollen…I’m thinking this is as good as it will get. I’ve been teasing my husband how free I feel not having to wear it. Hahaha Truth is I hate not wearing it. I’ve never went without it until now and I just feel naked! Being able to get it on makes me happy!

We did our running tonight. Week 3 day 2. I know I say this every time…I feel so good after our runs. Like I can take on the world! It’s crazy how it makes you feel so powerful. Does running make anyone else feel that way?! I guess it’s just the accomplishment that makes me that way…I’m so proud of us. I was trying to calculate how long we’ve been running now. I believe we started about 3 weeks before we started the C25k. We are technically on week 4, because we re-ran week 2. So, we’ve been actively running for 7 weeks! I am so proud of my husband and me for keeping this up! More big news!! I weighed today and I’ve lost 5 pounds!!!! Now that is motivation to keep on running!

I bought new shampoo and conditioner today. In a weird way…I love buying stuff like this. Any time I buy new household stuff, I have to test it out that day. It can’t wait! I even told my husband a few months ago, I’d like to get Febreeze for Christmas. I’m not lying either. My mom bought me a Swiffer once and I was in Heaven. Those floors were spotless after she left. She would call and ask what I was doing, “Oh you know…Just swiffering.” 🙂  So needless to say my hair feels great. I even bought some type of sea salt Moroccan spray. Spritzed that baby in my hair and now it’s air drying as I type.

Did you do anything quite as exciting as me today? What type of weird stuff do you do? Do you secretly love to Febreeze your entire house? Please tell me I’m not the only one!
