Fill in fun and a weekend getaway…

September 13, 2012

Another week almost over.

So glad this one is almost behind us.

If I wasn’t so tired I would let out my little rant.

I will write up a little post about my week… later.

It wasn’t all bad.

And this weekend should be interesting and fun.

Hubby and I are heading to Orlando for the Central Florida Blog Conference this weekend — sans kids.

My mom is coming over to watch them for us.

Thank you, mommy. We really appreciate it… I know you’ve been working like crazy.

I’m excited to meet some new bloggy friends and to see my friend Nicolette again.

Every time we’ve seen each other we’ve really hit it off and can just sit and talk for hours.

I’m also looking forward to learning new things and to broaden my horizons.

And lastly, there looks to be some awesome food to be had while in Orlando.

Hubby and I are meeting with an old friend for dinner both Friday and Saturday…

I’ll be sure to share my experiences with you guys when I get back!!!

Time to join my lovely  friend Hilary for some fill in fun.

Each week, Hilary plans on listing four statements with a blank for you to fill in on your own blogs.

This week’s co-host is Annie from the Lemon Drop – She came up with the last two statements

Hilary would LOVE it if you could please help her spread the word about this hop…. So, please tweet, FaceBook share, and add the linky to your post…

This week’s statements:

1. I like to __ when I am ___
2. ___ is my favorite vegetable

2. Carrots and peas mixed is my favorite vegetable. (This one was tough… I like so many different veggies.)

What a day… and some fill ins

July 7, 2012

It’s still Friday, barely, but until that clock strikes midnight it is and I’ll have enough time to finish up my fill ins for today.

It is also finally, blessedly quiet. I had so much planned and feel like I got nothing done.

Where did the day go? No, don’t answer that. Just a rhetorical question. It was a busy one alright.

Hubby worked out of the house part of the morning. For some reason when he’s here I never get as much done as when he’s out of the house right after breakfast. But what’s a good wife to do when her husband surprises her with a ticket to a blog conference? So excited. I’m going to Central Florida Blog Con in Orlando in September.

And as he sat there doing his research today sniffling and coughing and generally feeling miserable I made him lunch before sending him on his merry way.

Then, the almost daily nap time battle. Little One is giving me an awful time about her naps. It’s hit and miss, some days the magic works and others… not so much. Today, I lost… In between running up to her room every few minutes, I managed to get some cleaning done. I’m amazed at the dirt  things that were stuck between the couch cushions. Good thing my vacuum was up to the job!

After my cleaning streak I was hot and sweaty so I took the time and got my 20 minute swim in… It’s always a great time to recharge for me.

When nap time was officially over and the cleaning done, it was time to pick up the kids from their last day of camp… yes, you read that right, it was their last day. They went to camp for a month and now will be home the rest of the summer. Lots of pool time in store for me…

Pick up turned into drop off at one friends house, pick up at another friends house and a sleep over. Middle and her new friend from camp are fast asleep. The Boy is home from his friend’s house and the movie they went to see (Spiderman) and probably busy with one of his video games.

And mommy, me, is finally sitting on the couch with her feet up, the laptop in her lap and Justified on Amazon Prime. Why has no one told me about the yumminess that is Timothy Oliphant? Oh, my!!! Hubby really got into watching Justified and I never paid much attention. The other night he started over again and I started paying attention, big time. Eye candy, indeed… and no strippers in sight. 🙂

Anyhow, so now, time to fill in some blanks. Each week, Hilary posts four statements with blanks for us to fill in on our own blogs. It’s fun to see what everyone comes up with.

This weeks statements are:

1.       I ___ wear___

2.     I have had a lot of ___

3.     Public speaking makes me__________.

4.     My car always has_______because_______.

And here are my answers:

1. I always wear flip flops and I mean always. Hope there aren’t any podiatrists reading this.

2. I have had a lot of practice sweeping and vacuuming up dog hair. I do it pretty much every day…

3. Public speaking makes me nervous. My hands get sweaty, my voice breaks and my heart races… I much prefer speaking, singing and dancing in front and with a classroom of four-year-olds. Once a preschool teacher always a preschool teacher!

4. My car always has a mess in it because I drive around three mess makers. 🙂
