J. Crew sale

Lots of dresses $29.99 and up. I have 3 dresses from J crew and loved them, unfortunately they’re size 2 and don’t fit anymore.

Have you backed up your blog today?

The reason I started blogging was to archive all that was important to me, as we go thru computers like shoes here. So I backed mine up today, I used this free online service. I don't know of pros or cons, but I thought I'd give them a try.

NYC Kitchen

This is a kitchen my husband renovated for a tiny kitchen in NY. It's amazing how much you can fit into a small space.

21 day makeover

Now that my excercise routine has had a good reboot, I'm going to see if I can't add something else on my list. The blogging is going great, I have a couple of other sites to plop my 10gigs of photo files on....just kidding they're not quite that big, but I have tons of photos so this is like scrapbooking for me...something I've always wanted to do but haven't.

I really need to start spending more one on one time with my kids. They're growing so fast, 2 are in high school this year, and my #6 started preK, and I confess I don't even remember really doing anything with her. I think what really gave me a major guilt complex this week, was missing my son's football game. It was a home game, and the only other game I've made was last season, right after I had baby. He not only made a touchdown, he tells me he was voted best overall player. So I guess I'll be sititng the football season in. Now I hope you'll be proud that I walked up to the high school, not far, but at least I got a little walk in this week.

I was hoping to start on the exercise dvd's I have, but I can't get power out in the back section of the house yet. My dd said there's another outlet out there on the bottom floor, so I'll have to check that out.

Here's a pic from 2 years ago, when the back section of the house was built. The kids have been using it as a playroom and I've been using it for storage since, so it still looks the same, but messier. The hall leads to the master bedroom, which I intend on using as an exercise room until the house is completed.

21 day makeover

If at first you don't succeed try try again, well I could be trying for awhile here but I'm determined to succeed. That black hole looms lol.

I so want my life to start that my childbearing years are over, I can just focus on the childrearing and hopefully me a little. Did anyone else have a hard time getting thru that pregnancy/nursing stage? I've done it now almost consecutively for 15 years. I did have a break for a year, my 4th child was 2 when she stopped nursing and I had a whole year before I fell pregnant again, well almost. I was a whole new person. I always seem to be tired when I'm nursing. My dh just thinks that's the way I am, tired and irritable all the time.

Well, I don't have a plan for this week, I will let it go thru my mind a while till something happens.

So I pushed thru, had a really hard time at the begining of this week, I felt terrible. I am seriously thinking I have either chronic fatigue syndrome or fibro, maybe both. I'm beyond exhausted all the time, and until just recently I wake with all my muscles and joints aching and very sensitive to the touch.

I'm finding a groove, I go upstairs with the baby and stretch on the bed with him (gotta do what you gotta do) and by then he gets pretty distracted at pulling my room to pieces so I can do a few weights. Luckily he was out w. Dad at starbucks a couple of mornings.

monday - stretch yoga

tuesday - stretch tone weights

wednesday - stretch tone weights yoga

thursday = stretch tone weights

friday  - stretch tone weights, moved from 3 - 5lbs. ......

Ok, this is definitely counted as invasion of privacy! Yep, that's my one and only closet, oh, they're camped out on dh's shelves....he won't let me touch his laundry! Told me for years I shrunk it, but we know he just got too big for his britches. Shh..don't tell anyone I told you.

Our Renovation.

Our backyard, abandoned.

The house my dh started building....(I could give this one many titles)

Back of the backyard.

Hopefully it will look something like this, one day.

That's what Adam said!

It's official, I'm 47 and never start a car right, according to my dh. It doesn't matter that in 47 years, our van is the only car that doesn't start properly. It doesn't count that it has started every time for the last 6 months. But it didn't start today and it didn't start yesterday, so now it's official, I never start the car the right way, and I've completely screwed it up.

It's all my fault. So next time you hear that, just remember....

That's what Adam said!
