I am a 31 year old working mom. I have two children ages 6 & 8. I am newly remarried (two years and counting) and enjoy spending time with the hubs! Even though life is busy I try to take a little time to show what is going on in my world. This blog is mainly for daily happenings, finances and such. I have created a whole new blog at Butcher, Baker and Candlestick Maker to chronicle my creative sides. You will find recipes, cooking adventures, crafts and a whole lot of digital scrapbook layouts.

Yikes - It has been a long time since I have posted...sorry. Alot has been going on it, but to actually be able to sit down and type it all out is a tremendous task.
Since my last post -
Steve's mother Barb past away, he is still trying to come to terms with it, but is taking it one step at a time. So in turn we have taken in her dog into the family. It is a white fluffy dog, unkown breed, male named Baby. So far it has been a welcome addition to the family. It can be a little hyper, but has been very helpful to wake up Emilia in the morning. We just call the dog on top of her bed and he starts to nuzzle her awake...much improved from last year's tourture sessions to get her morning started.
The kids have started school Nicholas (2nd grade) and Emilia (1st grade) each are having there own struggles this year. Nicholas seems to be having trouble learning and Emilia's is a behavior problem - mostly just being too active and hyper...trying to get her to calm down for school.
We went camping this last weekend. It was raining Friday night, was great Saturday and we woke up to a cool, windy Sunday. The lake was way down...so we didn't swim, we went for a couple walks, but mostly just hung out with Margaret, Jeff and Jordan who joined us Saturday afternoon til Sunday a.m.
I was forwarded this email about this woman who has gotten alot of attention from an ebay auction. Her blog address is mom2my6pack.blogspot.com she is hilarious. I wish that she lived closer, because I would love to meet this woman. She has 6 kids and the things they get into are hilarious, and make me appreciate mine. One off her kids she calls Spaz and he reminded me of Emilia so much I almost peed my pants. Well - I got to get back to work. I know that this blog jumped around on different topics, who knows maybe with time I will improve....maybe not.
