Things have been crazy here. Strep, Coxsackie Virus, Colds and now dolphins in our river?!? Yep, About 20 dolphins have made their home for the past month in one of our rivers not even 5 minutes away. Last night we tried to get a look. Just as we pulled up they were coming down the river. It was so exciting.

Today, I need to write a major to-do list. I hate not having one and with the kids sick lately I havent been getting very much done. So a to-do list is on my to-do list!

Checking in

Just wanted to stop in for a quick minute. We have had a wonderful weekend and I think my dh had a wonderful Father's Day. We had some major storms last night. But today the weather is cooler and it is nice. Have been spending time painting and at the beach. Lots of good times with my boys. They are getting to be so much fun. All of the work is so worth it. I will be posting some pics tomorrow!

31 hours and counting...binky free

Never thought I would write that... I swear I thought my 2 year old was going to have one at his wedding! We started trying to get rid of them friday night. You see my oldest (2) was in love with that thing from day one! I always said "My kids will NEVER have one of those things" yeah...blah blah blah. Then some kind of study came out like the week before he was born that it may prevent SIDS, so being the paranoid first time that thing went. My younger one, could take it or leave it. Nap time yesterday was rough. Frog cried for an hour. I needed him to take a nap because we were going to family's last night. But as soon as he fell asleep I took it out of his mouth and he hasnt had it since. Hasnt even asked for it...I am so happy.
Uneventful weekend due to this heat wave we are getting slammed with. Really just hanging in the AC. Made an awesome blueberry cobbler tonight in the crock pot. It was damn good if I do say so myself!

Just how much....

For all you bloggers out there, Just how much of your life do you blog? The reason I ask, I have had a hard few days here, sick baby, ER visit, fighting with my get the idea. I have a long list of blogs I read and for the most part, they are always so rosy! Are bloggers just happy people?? Maybe I shouldnt be writing one. Of course, the timing is just horrible because I just started writing my blog 3 days ago. Do you all sometimes just want to write about how horrible things are right now but you write on the positive instead? Just wondering?? I promise, a happier post to follow....

Who would have thought...

Yesterday I look out my window and in my garden I see this

The snow peas I planted way back in March have finally begun to bloom. I have spent time in gardens since I was very young but I have always only thought of peas having white flowers. So this was so exciting for me! (Doesn't take much to get me excited these days).

Also found was literally like a hundred of these

It was fun to see the kids with these. We got rain last night and I thought for sure they would all be gone but sure enough this morning my rose bush is still covered with these little ladies!

Well now....

Well, here I am! I have toyed with the idea of blogging for some time now. I have friends who blog, I read blogs. So why not blog myself?? I keep asking myself, but why? Why would I even blog? Not sure if anyone will find my crazy life interesting but if not for someone else then I will blog for myself. As a teenager I enjoyed writing and havent in years. I am sure so many other women feel they have no time for themselves, by blogging, if only for a few minutes a day, it can be something for us. So, this begins it....
