Hello friends. Here are some Saturday randoms bouncing around in my head. Hope you enjoy!
♥ It's a beautiful day here. Jackson and I actually slept in and it felt really good.
♥ I want to start buying more paintings and pieces of art work that I love. BUT...they are all so expensive. Actually maybe I should start start painting again.
♥ The bathroom smells amazing... like Scott's cologne. It reminds me of him every time I walk in there.
♥ I love all the planner stickers that have been coming in this week. I'm waiting for them all to come in for a sticker haul but it's so hard not using them! - happy happy! -
♥ I feel like my neighbors are mowing their grass later because of my complaining. I feel bad about it too. They have every right to be here and really can mow anytime they want. Mornings use to make me bitch but I am doing better.
♥ Jackson hates school. I'm pretty sure I have told you guys that. His grades could and should be much better. He's grounded and it doesn't even seem to bother him much. Where is his motivation button??? I really need to find it!
♥ I just found out yesterday that one of my uncles has stage 3 cancer. I am not really close with him but he really is one of the nicest family members I have. Maybe I should send a card or something. Not sure.
♥ I have a ton of emails that I need to respond to. I am going to try to get caught up by the weekend. So sorry. I read each one when it arrives but don't always respond in a timely manner.
♥ Scotts work messed up payroll and just cut regular checks. Gosh...that's so inconvenient. Direct deposit makes life so much more simpler. Now I got to go try to make a deposit at the ATM sometime. I guess I shouldn't complain because they at least paid him.
♥ Have you guys heard how Kim Davis is back at it with the gay marriage. She is altering the marriage certificates possibly making them invalid. This woman seriously needs to get fired. And I hate hate hate the idea of paying her any kind of unemployment. She is totally violating her position. God is love and it makes me sad to think of him as mean or vengeful. She is running her own agenda and in my personal opinion, it has absolutely nothing to do with God.
♥ I think I am going to make some chocolate chip chewy granola bars. If the recipe turns out good, I will be sure to share it with you!
♥ I have had the hardest time figuring out snap chat. I know that sounds silly but for some reason I am at a total loss. I guess I need talk to Brittany Belle. She's the resident 14 year old social media adviser in our home!
♥ Speaking with our kids I get a lot of questions about which kids are here. Brittany is at her dads, Jackson is here. Laura is up where Brittany lives and our other child I cannot talk about. I can't tell if you if they here or not. I can't tell their name. I can't tell you anything. I am sorry if that bothers you but we are basically under a gag order. Just know we love all of our kids and all are doing ok.
♥ I am totally going to go out to the garage in a bit and do a quick pick up of my car. It needs it and shouldn't take too long. I just wonder why it's my car that gets messed up all the time.
♥ Over the weekend I also need to dye my hair. The gray's are showing! I even found a gray eyebrow hair about died. I pulled it right out! I guess I really am getting old.
♥ I was sitting on the back porch earlier and was enjoying some coffee. A few neighborhood kids a couple of houses down were paying outside. They looked so happy and innocent. I loved hearing them giggle. :)
♥ We are thinking that by the end of October, we will probably being buying a hedge hog for Jackson. I have to admit, they are pretty cute. I have been doing a ton of research on them trying to figure out if it would be a good fit for our home and family. It would live primarily in a cage with all the hamster wheels and such. Pretty easy maintenance from what I have read and might be a nice pet for a 13 year old little boy. I don't know really but trying to figure it out. If you have a hedgehog I would love to hear about your experiences. :) And yes... the new puppy will also be happening soon...I hope!
♥ I am thinking about going to the farmers market. However, I know I will want to buy a pumpkin and it's just too early! But some fresh fruit and veggies sound good.
♥ I also still need to find a new grill. I saw that Walmart would put them together for free if we buy it there. Considering Scott doesn't really even know what a hammer is for, it would really help! So maybe I can find one on sale. My little old fallen apart grill is still out in the yard and while it still does a great job of cooking our food, it looks bad and Scott hates it!
♥ I was talking with a girlfriend who really hates her job. She was telling me how awful it was and it simply made me feel grateful for being able to stay home. My ex husband worked hard and I got to stay home while the kids were young and Scott works hard enough for both of us...← his words not mine! I am blessed to be here everyday and I don't take one minute for granted.
I hope you having a wonderful weekend. I will be back later with a new video! xx
