So this blogging is going so hot. LOL I use to blog so much and now when I go to blog I find myself thinking. "MAN I got nothing interesting" or "No one wants to hear about this or that."
I really need to just blog for me and my family because we are blessed and have great little adventures. At some point they all start to blend together because, well I am human and my memory gets fuzzy.
Blog 3 times a week. Even if it is just to say what we did for the week. (some weeks are just that) getting through the days. Others are silly and wonderful.
So today is Wednesday. Hump day!! Always love being halfway done with the week. But the better news is Spring Break is next week and I am just chomping at the bit to have time off. I am taking 5 days. 2 are paid for by the college and 3 are my own vacation days. Not too bad if I do say so myself. I have to work on the Friday of Spring Break so I am starting my week off this Friday. So this is my Thursday and tomorrow is my Friday!!! Happy Dance!!
The weather is looking to be awesome on our days off too. Lower 80s. I want to take the girls to the Zoo one day, and maybe the Great Plains Nature Center. There are a few projects around the house I have been neglecting too. So I will throw in some Adulting during my time off. I know we will be grilling up most nights if I have it my way :)
NOW I just have to make it through today and tomorrow... Oh the torture.
Well the kitties have been doing really well outside. Okay well..... At first they were begging to get let back in! But as soon as Tony cut a whole in the garage door they were home free! We have beds in there and the food and water dish. Cozy pozy!!!!!
Thanksgiving came and went. Turkey and all the fixins were so good! Time with family was good but went too quick! I was sad because Tony and Baylee couldn't come so some of my family was missing. When I got home I rested and got Christmas decor in the house ready to put up!! Only thing up so far is our little tree! The bigger one will be later.
Currently we are living in a zoo. Let me lay it out for you. INSIDE we have 2 fish, 2 lizards, 2 dogs and 3 cats. Tony has always said he is allergic to cats but has been doing fine for the 1 we have had them. ( we took them in from Jeremy because his girlfriend is allergic) I didn't want them to be sent off to a shelter to die because lets be honest. They are old cats. No one wants old cats.
Well recently Tony's allergies have been going CRAZY. He is so miserable I just feel awful. We have decided to buy them a cozy cat house and fill it with lots of hay and blankets and transition them to outdoors. Taylor and I have talked about how they may do well and may not. One or more MAY run off or get out and get run over. She understand but would rather take the chance of them being here with us in the yard than in a scary pin of a shelter. I agree...
So the search is on for a kitty house they can snuggle in. Fatty has been loving his outdoor time. He now sits by the back door meowing so we will let him out. Noble and Babygirl are not as excited. They will go out but after about 10 min they sitting by the back door meowing to get back in. But good ol Fatty will be rolling around in the grass. :) So we know he will be ok.
You will be happy to know Johnny Appleseed is safe and sound in the front yard. Tony talked his sweet talk and they could work around it. I know you were waiting on baited breath about that one. :)
Tay was on the Honor Roll this quarter!! So proud of her hard work.
We are on the week after the Fall Family Camp out and WOW it was a good one this year. Thursday we show up at the grounds around 2pm. Grandpa already has the tarps up for the tents and to protect us for the chance of rain in the forecast. We are thankful he did because the rains came!
The evenings are always a fun time. Cooking around the fire. Drinking some festive spirits. Playing with glow sticks and being free in the wild!
And of course carving our pumpkins!!!!! (we didn't get to take them home due to an invasion of ants)
The kids always find ways to help out...
Oh the Boat adventure................................ Everything was good and windy. We were on the great Fall River Lake enjoying the COLD breeze and sunshine. Laughing and enjoying ourselves till the motor over heated. We were stuck out in the middle of the lade with no power! That was OKAY we had Tony and Noah to row right??. yeah YOU try rowing a pontoon boat full of people. It worked though and we made it to a boat ramp and called for help. What an adventure!!
It was such a great camp out full of stories, food, laughs, tears (by the tired kids) stickers stuck in the dogs fur (that got OLD), many walks, sweet notes written on leaves and just memories being made. This was a camp out to remember.
