Lazy... Yep. Me.

It's 7pm or 1900 for you military types on Monday evening.  It was like for many a 3 day weekend full of snow... 18 inches last I checked and still snowing.  By all counts it would have been a great time to be produtive around the house, cleaning organizing, purging etc...

But I have one deep dark secret I doubt many realize since I am always running here or there.  I am lazy. There I said it well wrote it for anyone who chooses to read.  It is not something that is easy to admit but I am hoping by admiting it here will help me hold myself accountable to my new found goal.  Too be less lazy, more organized and everything inbetween.  If not for myself for my children. 

I am not lazy in everything I do.  At work in both careers I am anything but lazy and my desk is very organized and almost empty.  I am lazy at home, not the domestic godess I'd like to be.  I don't cook, I hate cleaning (and I realize no one enjoys it but I lack the drive to do it at all). My laundry room looks like a bomb blew up in it.  I would love to be more like June Cleaver or anyother organized involved mother.  You know that soccer mom that we all love to hate because they are two steps ahead of everyone else. 

While reading a few of the blogs I follow this evening I came across a blog I'm an Organized Junkie The authors name is Laura and I plan to stalk her blog... err... I mean read it often on my quest to be organized. 

My first organizational goal is realtivly small in compairson but it will make me feel like I've acomplished something... the kitchen island.  It is dumping grounds for anything and everything.  Before and after pictures will be posted by Saturday evening that is my deadline. 

Wish me luck!

Any ideas, comments, words of wisdom would be greatly appreciated!

100 Days...

On Friday, Sweet Pea celebrated 100 days of Kindergargen! 

It made me think about what has and has not happened in the last 100 days of Kindergarten. 

One thing that certinaly has NOT happened in the least bit is a post to this blog.  I know I've said this before but I give a lot of credit to anyone raising kids, working fulltime and posting daily to a blog.  Kudos.

Many great  A few...things have happened in the last 5 or so months since I've last shared.  We have a new addition to the family!  Selena 'Lena' is a beautiful 7 month old German Sheppard puppy.  In October we went to the mall for running shoes for FF... came home with a puppy.  Yes, I know... I need to learn to say no.  (Never been very good at it).  But she really has been a great addition and she is a good companion for Tucker. 

All 3 kids have grown leaps and bounds.  Little Man turned 2 last week! As a mom it almost makes me want another one... then the terrible two's kicked in.  Nope! I'm good with 2.5.  Diapers will be gone sooner then later! etc... Sweet Pea reminds me daily that she will be 6 on the last day of school and is almost a first grader! yikes!  My oldest is now 12!? in the 5th grade and is a proud owner of a cell phone...

The frozen tundra I call home is getting yet another snow storm. No surprise there.  We all went to IHOP for breakfast this morning it had already snowed a good 3 or 4 inches.  We are so use to this weather it wasn't slowing anyone down as we drove past several large stores they were as busy as any other Sunday.  Tomorrow might be a little slower as most places are looking at 18-20 inches! Yes, that is 1.5 FEET of snow in 24 hours.

I hope this post finds everyone well and warm! Until another post (and yes, it will not be another 100 school days).  I got a new camera so join me soon for more adventures!

God Bless.
