happpyyyyy Thursday!

So...it was great to have everyone at the Raks Exchange club Chat! We always have a great time, don't we? I laugh so hard with ya'll, hahahahha. For those of you who don't know what it is....we meet every month (usually on the 14th). We get kits that are donated to us and we make quick pages or ploppers if you will. Then you upload yours to some server and then email me the links. Around the 11th I send out the links to everyone...waalaaaa. you have a whole bunch of premade pages to play with. And you get kits....what more can you ask?

After the chat my momma came over...boy have I missed her! She is a 911 dispatcher for the University of California Davis. They have been working her to the bone!!! Poor momma. and poor us...the boys miss her like crazy!!! So we hung out and talked and played squirt guns and talked and talked and did I mention talked? lol. My mom is my best buddy and we get a long splendidly! She spent the night which Chase just loved! Today we will hit Khol's, Sams Club and lunch before she leaves. I STILL haven't cleaned the house yet!!! Arghhhhhhhhhhhhhhh...I mean it is BADDDDDDD!

Oh...and guess what???? I re-joined the gym! I know I know...I said I didn't want to go because we have the bike, treadmill and elipitcal trainer here at the house...but this is what was happening. Boys climbing on me and machines, hubby coming in to ask where something was, someone coming to the door, phone ringing and I let it go to answering machine and it was someone I NEEDED to talk to, me looking at house going "man I should be cleaning" boys coming in asking to play or getting into a fight with eachother! sigh. So...I rejoined. $20 a month (they let me back in under my old rate thankfully or it would be no way). I went yesterday. Took it slow since I am still not feeling too great. But...I have have have to get healthy again. Plus...I wanna wear all these cute clothes and not look hideous, lol.

Brandon (hubby) and I are getting a long a lot better. We are making a real effort to be more affecionate with each other, to talk, etc. We are making up a schedule of nights he can work late, nights that will be for family and nights for me to "work" aka scrap, lol. I actually am starting to like him a little bit again, lol. It is so funny...when we hug or kiss...the boys are like ewwwwwwwwwww and then run between us for group hugs. It is so cute.

Ok...finally...here is the last part of the blog bonus. geeshhh...promise not to drag the next one out like this...lol...oh and Shawna was Tuesday's winner! woohooo.

WOW!!! Tracy I got a great free Gift and I won a prize... What a Blessing! Thank you so very much! I'm so excited!!! I just love your stuff.

You do need that gym membership!!! It's ok!!! It's good for you as a mommy, wife, cook, maid, blah-blah-blah... just to have your "me" time. Don't feel bad about it. And $20/month is a fab price... Our Y is $85 for a family(but our families only 2 peeps... so...) We use the elliptical we have at home and walk 3 miles 3 times a week.

Which the walking btw if your DH likes to is a good way for "y'all" time. I love our walks it usually takes an hour but I have a captive audience to just catch up on the goings on with him... no cell phones go with us on our walks. These are my fav times. Now it's so hot(98'ish) that we walk in the mall but at a steady pace 5 times around in about an hour we go 3 miles... So it has mental, emotional, and physical health benefits. Just an idea... but glad to hear y'all are finding time for things that are important(especially one another)
Blessings!
Shawna

Thank YOU! for the gift! I love it when you drag it out... especially when you have good news to tell. The house will get cleaned (or not) It's more important to spend the time with your mom. They say that trying to clean while the kids are at home is like shoveling snow while it's still snowing.
