Pooped out

ahh Husbands........

David uses our 4wheeler to plow the driveway. well something is starting to wear out so david was looking for the parts online. Tyler asked him what he was doing and he told i need to get parts for the 4wheeler.

Tyler asked if the 4 wheeler was broke. David said no but tyler counldn't understand why he needed parts if it wasnt broke. So finally David told him the 4wheeler was "pooped out".

Tyler accepted that and told everyone on Sunday that the 4wheeler was "pooped out"

i dont think pooped out is 3 years old appropriate. Do you?

behind the times

well first of all today i went thru alot of things. Emptied out my scrapbooking cabinets that are in the future babyroom. I have 2 large boxes for the girls to go thru on tuesday! I still need to sort my paper and put everything away but i am behind on time today! My trip to walmart involved an extra bath for tyler; who managed to pee his pants in the car. So i had some laundry to do too! David and dad took the cabinets downstairs so hopefully by next week everything will be out of that room and i can clean the carpet.

I am so behind the times. I have CDs and MP3 player. But i still buy CDs. Why dont i just buy the mp3s online and download them?? seriously i have an entire desk drawer full of CDs...what do i do with them? Let me know if you are interested in any of them! haha From Kid rock to Nickelback. I am so annoyed with the junk in my house. My garage sale pile continues to grow. the thing is i dont know where to get the mp3 online with out risking viruses...i know i know evern the 12 year old across the street knows where to go. I wonder if he will show me. I feel so old on this crap and i am not even 30 yet!

In other news, tyler like to show me what the naughty hockey player does (he calls Mirasty naughty because he hits people and goes to time out!). Mirasty aways makes this gesture after a fight and tyler likes to do it...but then tyler tells me that is for naughty guys. He then shows me what a hockey player does when he gets a goal! Tyler just jumps up and down and yells! its very funny.
He is insistent that he has a tail - this has been going on for about 2 weeks...he wags it and everything! I guess it is in place of an imaginary friend. Also each day he is a new animal; usually he is tyler kitty, but today he was tyler pig...he was snorting omg it was so funny. I was laughing so hard i was snorting! i would of taped it but you would of only heard me!

I so do not want to go back to work tomorrow.....i think that is why i am playing on the Internet! More later.....if i every get up to date on this new technology.

Monday Monday

I am off today because of the holiday i am trying to actually get things done! Yesterday i was nana was ready to stroke when i hung up curtains without ironing them! I told her ironing is so 1999!! haha! I found a nice curtain at walmart for the mudroom. I decided yesterday to go back and get some for the sliding glass and other windows in the living room. Now it is all tied together. I was ready for a change to the curtains, dad still calls them my PJ curtains and i have had them up since 2006!!! David painted the doors the same color brown that is in our living room! So the mudroom is done..well i need to clean out the closet.

I think in part i am just ready for spring. I wanted to grill out yesterday for dinner, but david had me use the indoor grill. I am just ready for winter to be over. Last year i told myself i was going to take a vacation this time of year. Get away from this weather......yeah i listened to myself.

All this talk of warm weather has me in the mood for pasta salad...hmm i wonder if i have the stuff to make it!

Happy Valentine's Day..i think!

Well, Tyler is not too sure!!

When i got home from work on Thursday Tyler comes running over to tell me..."i have a surprise! Come to my Room!" David was not happy! I follow him down the hall where he climbs under his bed and comes out with this handmade card:

As he hands it to me he says:


How cute is that! it was the perfect gift!! He wouldnt let me keep the card it has to stay on the shelf by his bed!

I would say tyler is 99.9% over being sick. Friday morning he woke up at 5:15 and came in bed with me. Only he didnt lay down. He climbed up on the bed and started jumping up and down yelling "WAKE UP, WAKE UP, WAKE UP, MOMMY!!!"

Organized Croup

Yes i spelled that correctly. This weekend we had planned to focus on getting the house organized and more efficient. Well Tyler came down with Croup on Friday! Luckily he was acting fine other then the random cough so we continued on with our plan.
Here are the finished products before i tell the weekend story! I love it! Its like a lodge!
I still need to get a curtain and repaint the doors but you can see the cubes for storage!

Friday night we did a lot of the running around so that saturday we could just start. Tyler hung out at Gramie's. David had started the Mudroom on Thursday, so on saturday he hung all the bead board and moldings. My dad came over and put together my new storage units for the craft area. I worked to move the computer to the foyer and cleaned out the desk. I found so much old crap in there, like bank statements from 2005. Our house was so trashed on Saturday. This photo is from like 10am saturday morning.I was trying to go thru the desk and dust things. This will become the new craft area. Tylers play-dough, paints, markers and papers along with some of my scrapbooking stuff.
By Sunday, the old desk was down stairs all cleaned out. I have box of things to burn and box of things to sell in garage sale or donated to a rummage sales. David started making the cubes to hold things in the Mudroom. I slowly began to clean the toy/scrap room. My counter top in my scrap area is being moved to where our old desk is. I am about 1/2 with clearing that off, sadly my dinning room table has so much crap on it still. I have not sorted any of my scrapbooking stuff out yet. I know i have things i dont need.
These are what my dad put together for me. I have one more of the big cabinet on the left coming.

Sunday afternoon tyler took a turn. The last time he ate was 11ish, he spiked a fever at 102 around 5pm. He was really just out of it from 3pm on. So today, Monday, I have stayed home with him. I slept holding him from 12-3 and then 4-7 last night. This morning he seems fine but still will not eat. Over the weekend he was feeling so good. We got him outside to get that good air in him. He made a snowman and went sledding.

I hope he gets better soon!

I am not a professional organizer, i need to give it my 100% attention in order to keep things some what in the right place. I would love to be those people you see on tv with everything in its place and labeled. But this weekend, i had my organization groove on. I am happy with what we were able to get done. But i have questions? I put all my CDs on my computer and on my MP3 player - so do i really need to keep them? They are taking up 1/2 a drawer in the old desk down stairs. Same with the DVDs, they are all in a binder, do i need to keep the cases?

The biggest question i had over the weekend....How did we accumulate all this crap?

bids wanted!!

Anyone interested in my HP Photosmart M425 Camera with Docking station? I purchased it in 2006 - it works fine, some times it locks up but david thinks its because the batteries i used in it are on their last life. I have dropped it a few times so as it opens you feel a click.

I paid like 120 for the camera and 50 for the Docking station. If you want, place an offer. By Sunday i will be posting it online!

What did i learn today?

We have been trying to have tyler go all night without a pull up. Last night was the first accident. This morning david put the bedding in the wash for me. I went down to put that load in the dryer and wash the comforter just a few moments ago.......

Not thinking we have a mattress protector or plastic sheets, whatever you want to call it. Well guess what i grabbed it out of the washer, turned to put it in the dry when i got completely soaked. The way it balled up in the rinse cycle, allowed it to keep about 1 cup of water in the middle of it! I must of turned it just the right way to dump it on me. Can you imagine if I had put it in the dryer with that much water? Silly mommy! - that was tylers response!

Making room for baby

This weekend we are going to start making room for baby. Our first project really has nothing to do with the baby but with satisfying me! We are making storage cubes in the mud room so that area is more useful! there will be a bench for tyler to sit on and lots of storage. The closet is going to get a cleaning too. David, tyler and Dad already took the boarder down and painted the top of the walls. The bottom will have bead board.

Tyler was very tired after his day of work!

Also this weekend, i am going to clean out my scrapbooking stuff...stand by for amazing deals! we are going to turn our desk area into a craft area..kinda. i found some good units at Target that we are going to go get. We are trying to figure out what to do with the computer. Our original plan was to move the big computer thing in tylers room that was housing toys, to the foyer and put the computer there. But David hates so i dont know what is going to happen.

Anyway we will be busy, the Honey do list was 25 items long for the weekend! Today I am going to the doctor, hope to schedule my sono appointment the next few weeks to find out if its a boy or a girl! after that ty and i are going grocery shopping. Well I need to blow dry my hair and eat some carbs!
