Have you ever done anything that was not wrong, but not the best thing to do, and now you get reamed out?  Has anything ever happened where "one bad apple, spoils the bunch?"  That is kind of what I am going through... and it sucks because that is such a big part of my life, that I do not know how to distance myself comfortably.  No, it is not my marriage or kids or FT job... but I dare not say here... because the internet has eyes...

And on another note... less then a week till the Parade of Ponds and I do not think we are close to being ready.  It is a good thing my dh has employees that can help him this week.  I really have tried to get things done, I have worked very hard, for me... so...

And because of all of this and the stress of life I am so worn out.  I have not been sleeping well.  I need to sleep in or get to bed early.  Today I did not even want to wake up so I completely overslept, which meant I had to drive today (in my Grandpa's almost broken car).

Also, found out this weekend that Mollie either really likes me and/or really misses Mandi because she just whines when I am out there till I take her out.

There is probably so much more, but I have a lot to do.

Dear Blog

Dear Blog,
I have decided I need to make a change.  I think I need to reasses what is going good and what is going bad in my life.  And really, what my values and goals are.  I know my first priority are Nick and Jeffrey and Samantha... and I need to do what is best for them and for me.  (BTW... every time I say first priority I want to giggle because that is the name of Nick's company :-) ).  So my goal is to take some time and think about that.  If it means getting off of my lazy ass, that is what I have to do.

So, while I do not have time right this second, that is what I plan to do.... and heck..maybe I can hash it out here... and maybe someone will come along and understand.

Well today is one of those days you want to just go back to bed. Nothing seems to be going right.
So I am just saying Hey!

Busy July

This month is so busy!!  Between this and that I have so much to do.  Last Friday I ran to Anoka and back and then Saturday went out with my friend Tonya and others (and dropped a bundle).. and along the way trying to help Nick get the yard ready for the Parade of Pond (which of course I am not too much help because he is a perfectionist).  Last night we went and dropped a bigger bundle at Costco - at least the kids had fun shopping.  Thursday we may go to our friends for dinner and Friday we got tickets to the Legion's pork chop dinner.  And the big thing (hopefully) is Saturday.  I am in the business expo of the Mound, MN Spirit of the Lakes Festival (first annual - we hope).  I am hoping to drum up a lot of Creative Memories business that way.  I also scheduled a show and business opp for the next day at my house - so I hope people come.  Also, Saturday night we may go out for my Mom's birthday (which is actually today - Happy 52nd Mom!) because they will already be on my side of town.  Then next Monday is our Creative Memories meeting.  And the really big thing is the Parade of Ponds our house will be on.  It is Sat & Sun, July 30-31!  Nick is hoping to get a lot of people to stop by to see our pond, pondless waterfall and nightscaping.

And I cannot forget - the biggest thing is on Friday, July 29 we have our 5th wedding anniversary!!
So I guess forgive me if I am so tired....
Favorite phrases by my kids:
Jeffrey:  "why.........cuz"
Samantha: "Mommy, mommy, mommy, mommy, mommy, MOMMY!!!"
and not to be left out Nick: "It is so darn hot out here... if the shade could just come over here it would be better"
