so frustrated...

Back in August I got an e-mail reminding me of the monthly book club that I used to go to when I lived in Covington.  After re-arranging my schedule, I was finally able to attend a get together today (in November).  Although I was so happy to see my girlfriends again, I was disappointed that the first topic of conversation was my Rosacea.  What?  Seriously?  I know that people care about me and want the best for me, but why do we have to talk about how red I look?  It is so frustrating that this is such a big part of my life.  

Anyway, I just had to vent!  I love having this blog as an outlet for sounding off the good and bad stuff in my life.  So, thank you for listening!

She put the little "c" in retroactive!

Sometimes I take pictures of books (or newspaper articles about them) that I might want to read later

Lastly, I finally got this one from the library.  I better hurry up and read it...there are 106 other people on the waiting list for it.

Hope you all have a great weekend!

Books, football & being thankful

The kids and I spent two hours at the book warehouse last Saturday.  It went ok when they stayed in the boxes, but when they were running around everywhere we just had to end up leaving.  I'm sort of glad it was the last day to volunteer.

The Georgia Bulldogs had their last two games on basic cable, so Matt and I were able to watch them.  I think we're bringing them good!

I don't do parent homework, so Clarice drew a picture of what she is thankful for
So, she is either thankful for crochet yarn, or this wasn't an age appropriate!

And speaking of are her very expensive school pictures

Lastly, I finally updated my other blog with a book review

Blogtober days 28 & 29

Hello and welcome to the weekend edition of Blogtober!  

Saturday I got up and went for a short jog, then Clarice and I went to Chick-fil-A.  We then headed over to a local warehouse that our church is using for a book drive.  We're hoping to hand out twelve books to each child at two elementary schools on the last day of school.  They did it last year too.  This was our first time helping out and we had so much fun!

And Matt hand sewed his car seat upholstery back together because his sewing machine broke...
 (we always have the strangest things to brag about, don't we?)

For Sunday (today) we were on our way to church when Clarice got sick to her stomach.  Poor baby.  I like the extra cuddles, but I just feel so bad for her.  We're just going to hang out at home today. 

Hope you all have a good weekend!  :)

Blogtober day 27

Last night the kids and I went to a Halloween event at a local high school.  The kids had a lot of fun playing games and trick-or-treating.  I made a video of it (sort of - I just let the my phone edit it) which you can view here.
I was so glad we went!

Do you all have any spooktacular plans for the weekend?

Blogtober day 26

Day 26 of Blogtober was fabulously cold!  I have not turned on the heat in our house yet.  I tend to freeze out my family because I'm so!

While Lance was at school, I built a fire in the backyard fire pit.  It was a bit of a challenge to tend the fire, watch the three year old, make smores, and take pictures...but that is just the kind of hard work and dedication you get from this blogger!  :)

 Don't worry, I kept the water hose going and the fire didn't really take off like I wanted it to.  It was more like slightly warmed up marshmallows instead of roasted marshmallows. 

I have something fun planned for tonight (if it works out ok), so I will post about that tomorrow.  



Blogtober day 25

For day 25 of Blogtober, the kids went to school and when Lance got home he helped me bake some chocolate chip oatmeal cookies...

And here is one of me and Clarice before I dropped her off at preschool...

I finally tore out a rotted piece of wood in the cabinet and replaced it....
 tools I used
 what it looked like for a month of postponing the project
 and after (I need to touch up the white paint)
 I guess I was just really glad to have it done, because I slept better last night than I have in a long time!
