One of Those Days

I am having one of those days. Why is it that the day after I do my sort of weekly trip to Target for dry goods and Swedish Fish and the tile is gritty with dirt from all the wind we have had the the past week that my mop decides to disintegrate!? Luckily I remembered that when we moved in years ago we got a free coupon for one of those wet swiffer things. I didn't use it very much because it just seems so wasteful, but as luck would have it there was one pad left in the box! So even though my tile isn't as clean as it would have been with the mop, at least it is cleaner than it was a few hours ago. Now if only I could find a compare and contrast essay on a really boring subject all finished somewhere in the laundry room I could relax and enjoy the weather with the rest of my day!

18 and Counting

Eighteen years ago my life completely changed. I know it's cliche but I married my best friend. No matter what I am doing or who I am with I always think it would be better if Shawn was with me. We haven't had the easiest of married life but it has always been worth it. I love my husband more and more every year that we spend together and I honestly can't imagine what life would be like without him! Even though today is just like any other (except for the root canal ;) ) I am grateful that I know you will always be by my side no matter what life throws at us. I love you Shawn.

Starting the Dress




So I got Hailey to Joann's yesterday to pick out her fabric for this years prom dress! She wanted something with a cool back this year and probably green. She found one at JCPenny to show me for an example, it was $200!!!! So far for the pattern, fabric and lining (didn't find the right zipper yet) we have spent $35. Maybe next year I will put an ad in the paper to make dresses for other girls I could make a killing!

To Facebook or not to Facebook?

We had such a great time with all of our visitors over the last 2 weeks. Thanks again for making the trek down to visit and see Hailey's show. It really meant a lot to her to have so many fans in the audience and it might not be the last one after all. This morning she was talking about finding a song for summer theater auditions! While Shawn's family was here they were all talking about Facebook. So now they have me wondering if I should venture into that whole craze or not. Will it take away form my blogging and flickr time? Or will it add to the communication I have with family and friends? Not sure yet but keep an eye out I may be on there someday soon!

Last Opening Night

I'm not supposed to be calling it that, but I am. The show last night was cute, funny and Hailey did an amazing job. Watching her up there last night I couldn't believe how much she has grown, in her acting, her singing and just into a beautiful and talented woman. She didn't seem like a little kid up there anymore. Hailey I know you are going to go off and be a wonderful pharmacist, medicinal chemist or researcher of some kind but I hope that I will still get to see you on a stage once in a while in some form or another. You were wonderful and I really enjoyed your work! ;)

Tea at the White House


Last Friday we went to Tea at the White House in Athena's classroom. The kids were all dressed up as historical people and they sang a few songs for us and then we got to walk around the room and meet them all. They have been working on this project since right after Christmas. They each had to read a biography about their famous person and then learn the answers to questions that we were given to ask them. They all did a great job and it was a lot of fun for us and the kids. Here is a little video of the songs and then one of our interview with Pocahontas.
