Welcome to my little corner of blogland! This is the only sane spot I can come in my crazy life! :) Here I share my sometimes funny sometimes NOT-day to day insanity I call my life, along with my sweet wooly hubby & all our boys :)

If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; there is where they should be.
Now put foundations under them.

Update and pics :)

Hello ::echoes:: LOL Its so quiet here! It is a very pretty day, and I have alleviated some of my biggest stressers lately...and felt like blogging about it. I wont go into grave detail as I am unsure who might read my blog (its in my email siggy). But basically there has been a situation here in my home for a long LONG time, way longer than it should have went on. 12 wks ago, after screwing up my courage for about 12 wks BEFORE, I confronted the situation and was told it would be resolved "by the school was out" Giving 8 wks grace. ok..fast fwd to the week before school was out. THere was an "appearance" of coming resolution! But it was totally a manipulative ruse. Come a little farther, 2 wks ago, I stated "I really really want this done before summer school next week". More manipulative moves made..looked like steps taken..NOT. Summer school started YESTERDAY. This is stuff I really needed Wildchild here to help me with. Ok let me insert here that this whole thing seriously caused daily fighting between me and Danny. DAILY. For MONTHS. SO yesterday I just extremely passive agressively DEALT. I know its a cowardly way..I know that. But I am a cowardly lion :) And I THINK IT WORKED. Now I am sitting here, waiting for that proverbial other shoe to conk my head...but still. Peace. How long in coming? :) Enough! blah! Pics below!

Finished Care Bear quilt

Do you see what I see next door at the neighbors from HELL's house?! (click to make larger if need be lol)
(yes taken furtively out my bedroom window LMBO)

Today is my sweet wooly hubby's birthday! Happy birthday you sexy young thang ;) Here are two pics of him, beard, and no beard. Which one looks best? (I loveeeeeeeee the beard lol)

Still doing good on my "diet". I am walking about 4-5 times a week, no sweets, only drinking water etc. NOT LOST A SINGLE POUND. But some of my tighter clothes are a little looser so hopefully thats a good sign. Its very discouraging to step on the scale and see NO RESULTS but I'll keep trucking along :) have a good week! xoxo melzie

He looks more serious/mature with a beard, more like a kid about to get into trouble without. =) Good looking guy, though. Your kids are darling, too. My last 3 years of teaching, I had a little boy with spina bifida. Boy is that ever a tricky thing. You have my sympathy, but it looks like your boys all do the normal boyhood things, and that's the best!
