I saw this on Marie's is too silly!

A man came home from work and found his three children outside, still in their pajamas, playing in the mud, with empty food boxes and wrappers strewn all around the front yard.

The door of his wife's car was open, as was the front door to the house and there was no sign of the dog. Proceeding into the entry, he found an even bigger mess. A lamp had been knocked over, and the throw rug was wadded against one wall.

In the front room the TV was loudly blaring a Cartoon channel, and the family room was strewn with toys and various items of clothing.

In the kitchen, dishes filled the sink, breakfast food was spilled on the counter, the fridge door was open wide, dog food was spilled on the floor, a broken glass lay under the table, and a small pile of sand was spread by the back door.

He quickly headed up the stairs, stepping over toys and more piles of clothes, looking for his wife. He was worried she might be ill, or that something serious had happened.

He was met with a small trickle of water as it made its way out the bathroom door. As he peered inside he found wet towels, scummy soap and more toys strewn over the floor. Miles of toilet paper lay in a heap and toothpaste had been smeared over the mirror and walls.

As he rushed to the bedroom, he found his wife still curled up in the bed in her pajamas, reading a novel. She looked up at him, smiled, and asked how his day went.

He looked at her bewildered and asked, 'What happened here today?'

She again smiled and answered, 'You know every day when you come home from work and you ask me what in the world I do all day?'

'Yes,' was his incredulous reply.

She answered, 'Well, today I didn't do it.'

two post in one day...what the heck?

Well I forgot to post about this..and I said Disney on Ice right? Well today for one of my classes we did an 8x8 acrylic album and it really tested me. How do you make an album that is so personal? Right? It was not something Michelle or I had thought about before creating and booking the class, but when I was pow wowing with her and creating my sample...I didn't know what I was going to do. For me, of course it would be about the girls! BUT not everyone has children. Or even wants to have children. And a travel journal might not work..SO what do I do? An ALL ABOUT ME! I did have to case a few ideas from blogs, but it came together! But Diane and Wendy went their own route, thank goodness, and helped to expand my thoughts! But the reason for this post is because I used the 40 things before I turn 40 from Freckled Fun's blog. I love to read Beth's blog. But it was really hard for me.

4. Tell everyone in my life that has a positive effect on me, THANK YOU!
5. Watch a World Series game LIVE!
6. Attend a movie premier
7. Spend one week with my mom!
8. Spend an hour a day with each daughter one on one!
9. Wear my hair down all day! (YEA RIGHT)
10. Be okay with the person I am!

Sorting it all out!!!

I know it has been over a month since I have blogged! It has just been that crazy here. I would LOVE to blame it on something else, but really it is ALL MY FAULT! But I going to TRY and catch you guys all up in one post! First of all...we didn't move! Ryan made the executive decision that we would stay put! I am emotionally dealing with it. But every so often, Ryan decided to pull his card..SO he did on this one. So we didn't move. It is killing me that we are Noah Tinker's neighbor. Let's see what else..OH EVERYONE started soccer. Tyra, Tray, and baby bugs!
Aren't they CUTIES!!! But with that comes me running them back and forth to practice or to games everyday of the week! On top of that, I am running the girls to school then off to The Pink House.

Then the Pink House was full of fun!!! We hosted Scrap Pink! Scrap Pink was so much fun! We hosted a crop that supported Breast Cancer Awareness! It was so much fun!!! We had a bunch of our "closest" friends come by and crop! We had demonstrations every hours, bingo and giveaways! I had such a great time. On top of the fact that the girls had soccer games that morning! Then we slid in a Mother's Morning Out! The Mom's love Mothers Morning Out. $5 a child and you can crop for 3 hours! Not to mention that we had our yard sale. That rocked! We had World Card Making Day!!! We won a contest and had an Editor from Papercraft Magazine come out and teach a class for us! Megan was a HOOT! SO SO SO much fun! BUT if you aren't busy..I am teaching this weekend. We are going to make cute..SPOOKY...houses this weekend using Doodlebug's new Halloween line! Then A Page Frame class! I can't wait! The Sunday is my favorite freshman's birthday! I can't wait!! Anyway..heres us adventuring with Megan... That was a crazy night! My hair was a mess and my clothes was insane..but seriously it was good times with good friends..I can't really really complain right!
