An army wife for life with 3 crazy kids..

Sunday, February 21, 2010

While my blog is a work in progress I have to say I'm getting rather frustrated. So consider this my reaching out for help if any of you out there can. Anyhow, you would think with a military hubby and 3 crazy kids I'd have a ton to blog about, but honestly there is nothing. I'm sick right now with a horriable sinus infection I've had since thursday. I did get a new calling in church. I get to lead the music in Relief Socitey and I like it ok. I'm sure the Lord doesn't care if you like your calling or not just that you open your mind and heart to be able to grow and develop new talents. So with that said I'm learning to love it. We just got a new roof put on our house which was a much needed thing. It looks really nice I just didn't enjoy handing the roofer the money we owed him after putting on this nice roof. Lets see...Natalie had to do a project on Betsy Ross and I have to say I've learned more about this women than I ever expected to know. She had to do it on a ceral box and cover it in white paper and put pictures and post a small report to it. I have to say I really got into and I think I did it more like a 6th or 7th grade science fair project. OH THE DAYS! I made it more like a shadow box. I'm sure Ms. McCament didn't have what I did in mind. I told Natalie that different is good so we shall see what grade she gets. SHe just really enjoyed working on it with me. I'll take pics of it when we get it back and let all of you see our wonderful work. Or my WONDERFUL work. Nathan is loving Math right now. I told him to enjoy it now cause one day it gets harder and the dislike factor may finally take play. He's active as ever and really wants to do sports but I'm thinkin we don't have a money tree in our back yard so this hobby may have to wait till debt gets paid down. He has great friends that he's founds this yr and I honestly can't believe the yr is almost over and he'll be closer to first grade. You know what that means for me right? I'm one yr closer to getting NICK in school and out from under me so that I can go to work part time and hopefully afford that KEWL minivan that I want so badly. But dreams are dreams. The kids latest rambleing have been about what they want to be when they grow up. Nick of course wants to be a astranaunt. Nathan has said he wants to be a trash man the last few times I've asked and Natalie wants to be a beautician. Ashlee (my sis) and I gave my parents a 30th wedding anniversary party when we went back to my hometown for Natalies baptism earlier this month and I think it turned out wonderful. It was a task to get them up to the church without totally revealing what we were doing. It was nice to get to see all the friends of family that we have. Speaking of Natalie's baptism it was great. The spirit was really strong. I have to say I've never been to a baptism like her's because she cried the whole time. Not sure if it was cause the spirit was strong or because she was scared. She doesn't care for unwanted attention, but it went off without a hitch so thats good. It was so good that my sis and bro in law could come since we don't get to see them much. My next party plan is of course Nathan's b-day on the March 22, my Scentsy Spring/Summer launch party on March 5th, and my sister's up and coming baby shower that i'm so excited to help host. Got some great ideas. Now to Geoff not a lot is going on with him. He's busy with work and teaching his Judo class on Wed. nights that he enjoys doing. And soon he'll have himself busy doing our taxes that he's put off doing for a few weeks now. Well, I guess at the start of this i said not much to blog about but it looks like I've typed half a book so sorry bout that. I'm off to go and do laundry which by the way is my least fav thing to do and chase kiddos. I hope that this post finds each of you well and happy.
