Garage Sale

I love, love, love garage sales, both having them and shopping at them. I had one with 2 of my friends this week and it was great. I was completely exhausted, but got rid of a lot of stuff and made quite a small stash. Of course I spent almost half of my earnings on stuff from the other people in the sale, but my kids are set on clothes for the rest of the summer so it was money well spent.

Then I went to another sale this morning and got a fry daddy, we have been missing ours since the fire, a few toys and a Nintendo ds. I have been wanting to have one of those ds's for a while now, if you haven't played the game brain age you have to try it, it is great. It is kind of like an iq test almost, it definitely gives your brain a workout! Now that garage sale season has started again I will be giving our pocketbook a workout too! But I would much rather pay $1 for an item than $20 or $25! I have probably saved us thousands of dollars by going to garage sales. Sorry if you are bored with all the bargain hunting talk, I just get so excited about finding bargains, it really is one of my most favorite things to do. I will keep everyone updated on my bargains from time to time, I know you all are wating with baited breath!

Nothin' Much

Not much going on in our house this week. The weekend shopping trip was a smashing success, but now it is back to everyday life. Gabe is being his usual hard-headed-mean-to-his-sister self, Gwen is Miss Clingy Pants and Kayleigh is a drama queen. Man, sometimes being a mom is the absolute hardest job on earth!

I am having a rummage sale this week with friends, hope to get rid of a bunch of stuff and make a lot of cash! Hope you could keep up with all this excitement!

Shopping Trip

So tomorrow Donny is going with our pastor and a couple of other men from church on an overnight golf trip. We wives decided to do the same, only an overnight shopping trip! Let me give you some background here as to why I am so excited! Gwen was born on May 4 last year, and I have not spent more than 4 hours away from her since then, read, I haven't slept through the night in over a year! She will be at her grandma's house for 2 nights! I can't put into words how excited I will be to have 2 whole nights to myself, well with Donny too:) I am going to be like the kid who's parents are too strict, then when they finally are away from them for a few days and go wild. That will be me! I will be so elated to have a few days of freedom I will go crazy! Let me clarify that I love my kids with all my heart, and love being with them all the time, but we all need a break!

I Have Strep Throat- Need I Say More!

So strep throat and I have a love/hate relationship, I hate it, it looooooves me! I remember as a kid my sis would get strep every once in a while, she was always the "sickly" one, with allergies and throat problems. And I was always like..."I never get sick, I've never had strep, the flu, etc"... Well, we all know the evil super germs are just waiting for a cocky person to spout off some such nonsense, so they can swoop in and accept the challenge of infecting an "uninfectable"! I have had my fair share of strep in the past 6 years!

Anway, I have a pretty bad case, it is never good when the doc looks in your mouth, scrunches up their face and says "ooooo"! Of course this has to be the day Donny goes to a friends after work so they can change his motorcycle tires! I have taken my first 2 pills so hopefully I will feel better tonight or in the morning.

Ok, so I should be studying my lesson for Bible Study at church in the morning, I'm only the teacher! But instead I am getting this blog set up and ready. I have thought about doing one for a long time, but I honestly don't think anyone will be interested in reading anything going on in my life. Aside from alot of poopy diapers, some occasional chocolate milk puke and about 50 nose wipes a day, my life isn't that interesting to anyone but say my bff and my mom! But here goes.

So for anyone who does not know, I have 3 children, Kayleigh age 7, Gabriel age 3 and Gwendolyn age 1. I have been married to my wonderful husband Donny for 11 years, wow I feel old! I love spending time with my family, spending time away from my kids on occasion ;), reading, walking, shopping, playing volleyball, talking and most of all I love the Lord. Hope anyone who reads this might get a little encouragement, laugh a little, cry a little, and maybe get a glimpse of how good God is and how great it is to be a born again child of God! Hope you enjoy and please come back.
