Tomorrow we are heading to the lake. Fabe's parents are coming out for the day too. My sister and mom are all there already...tomorrow hoping to getaway by 10...get food and go. Pretty easy since its just Fabe and I.
Anyhow, thats about it :)
My rose bush! Its doing very very well!
I LOVE this welcome planter! I knew it would be perfect for my front door!
Isn't this the cutest little planter?????
The front door. Its pretty cluttery though as I just bought some new dirt and flowers. But anyhow, this is what I am working on this week is making it all pretty. Once its not suppose to rain, I will paint it again!
Kennedys enzymes holder:
My planters that I spray painted
Fabe, BBQ'ing in the yard.
The back of the house....I wish I could leave my patio stuff set up, but the freaking WIND everyday is getting really, really annoying!!!!
See how the firepit use to be???? Just like sitting in the middle of the yard..I hated it like that!!! I loooove it now though!

So I went for my interview with Alberta Children Services and they called on Monday, said that I was one of the top candidates! I was shocked. So I had to give them my refrences and then a criminal record check. The COOL thing is, there is a *special* place for me to go (lol) and I can get a free check and it will be done in 20mins. So, I am doing that on Friday then I have to drop it off down at the Human Resources place. Pretty cool. So then anyhow. Fabe was off Monday and Tuesday. Monday I came home late from work to an awesome supper...Tuesday we went to my ma's house for supper and Fabe did some little things for her around her place. Today I got home from work, the kitchen was a mess as I left it. Yuck. But I thought 'for get it' and took the kids to the mall...and OMG, have you BEEN to Dollarama lately? they freakin sell pregnancy tests there!!!! AND Mack got a fishing rod thingy!!! How COOL is that. Of course I picked up a preg test, because ya just never know and those things are so expensive. Anyhow. Then, we headed to Pollard Meadows park so the kids could play for a hour. Then we came home, checked out the other neighbors new camper (gave me an idea!!!) and came into my messy kitchen. Cleaned that, its all pretty. Through in a load of laundry...tomorrow is EARLY day as the kids are off at 3:00pm. I really really wanted to do my check thing tomorrow, I wonder what time they are open until??? Because I just want to get it over with and know whats going on....
I know, pictures...but honestly I have been dragging my feet everyday...I have them on my camera but just don't have the time to do it

Some times its the most hardest times, that teach us the best lessons.
Anyhow, just wanted to share :)
And did I mention my son wants to move his room down to the BASEMENT to have his 'own space'.....
Today is Sunday..already. Yesturday the kids came back early as it was raining out there. So they came home and played outside for the night until I had to call them in. Mack had the neighbor boy sleep over. Kennedy went to bed early..and Fabe and I watched TV in bed. Fabe BBQ'd chicken for us. Yesturday, I am so proud of myself I cut the sod out around the fireplace, put in edger stuff and then filled it with rocks. It now looks so clean and tidy! Yeah. It was HARD but looks great, I have a pic later to show. The birds LOVE my birdbath. Its so cute. I am going to cut all along the fence line, and add more stuff to it because my raspberries are totalllllly taking my bed over. So I will make a longer bed. I picked out the tree that I want, a lialic tree for the corner of the yard. With some cinder blocks or something...a bench thingy, I don't know. I can't wait to have a tree! My little birdies will be so happy. There are a few bird feeders hanging from the shed and now my bird bath. I love birds, its just feels BETTER when they are around...except Bandit chases and barks at them....So yeah. Today I plan to get all of the laundry done and put away...re-tidy what needs to be done. Wash the fruit for their lunches this week, maybe pre-bag them too. And, both the kids need baths tonight...not showers...Kennedy's hair needs to be done. I will lay out their clothes for the week in their clothing organizers and maybe hit a movie or something tonight....we'll see.

Also, I got through half of my new book now but I cheated and looked ahead to the last page of the book and disappointed myself. I ALWAYS do this...I hate that!!!!!! Anyhow, if anyone is looking for a good read "My sisters Keeper" is very very good. Its a moral-challenging book...kinda...LMAO!
Well anyhow, I am going to lay in bed and read now. Tomorrow I am hoping to do some yard stuff....maybe the rock around the firepit...and also...buy another birdbath for the front yard. I need somethin out there. The backyard is soooooo plain. Tomorrow I will take pics of the yard and tell you my plans for it...but ask for suggestions on what to do....The grass is great and I am very happy to say that I have fixed almost ALL of the puppy-piss spots with just grass seed and topsoil. No more puppy patch repair crap...it DOES NOT work...other then that I'm not sure whatelse to do...I cleaned so much that I don't need too. Maybe I will clean my car this weekend and the kids rooms...we'll see. I should get done what I need to as next weekend we are at the lake...and the weekend after is Fort Mac. So I won't be home-home for a weekend for a while again....I just hate the thought of that!

Well anyhow, I am going to make some popcorn, read my good book and have a diet Pepsi and relax and prepare for my horrid day tomorrow...

Tomorrow I have to go register Kennedy into dance class. She is taking on another day this year (oh gosh) as she is taking hip hop and tap/jazz combo. And, then Mack will be in indoor soccer...its going to be busy in the fall. But its okay, its important to keep kids busy and out of trouble. (right?)
Tonight we have to run out to Devon as we sold the truck and the person who bought it is meeting up there...that will be done.
And, other then that...the house should have been cleaned because it just feels messier now. This weekend, mom is taking the kids to the lake so no more lazy-Tara...its cleaning time.
We have to head to Devon.

Today I cleaned the bathrooms, dusted, swept and moppped. Have I said lately HOW much I LOOOOVE having wood floors throughout the house? Love them. I am regretting not doing our bedroom in them too. Kennedy's room is done in them but not Macks or our room. We have to buy a new bedroom set for us soon (really really soon) so maybe when we take out all of our old stuff we might get it done...I really really want them wood in there too. Carpet just seems sooooo dirty! Ugh, yucky!
Well I just about to the bath the kids. We need some groceries but I'm not sure when we will get them...
A while back I bought some scrapbook page frames. Instead of scrapbooking albums I have decided that I am just going to scrapbook pictures of events and what not, and put them in the frame for artwork on my wall. Well I did 2 today, just simple ones and they look great. I already hammered them into the wall and they look so nice on display. I did one of our Cuba trip and the other one of married in Vegas one. I have a long hallway up here from the bonus room and Macks bedroom going down to ours and Kennedy's room and its just a 'blah' hallway so I am going to put a few of them going down there...I looooove displaying pics of our family and events...I just love family pictures. I will take a pic of them too...later.
Well I should go and CLEAN up...my mom is leaving the lake in 30mins she said so I have 3 hours to get stuff done...

Fabe preparing breakfast for us..
Kennedy FINALLY gets to drive her quad...tire is all fixed.
Hobo and Badit eating. Hobo is very protective of his food, but Bandit knows to back off, so thats good.
Awwwwwww....and when we left Sunday I left his a big bowl of food and a sleeping back in the new part of the cabin being built (it has a roof and everything) so I felt better knowing he had food and shelter and a cozy sleeping bag. My mom is out there this weekend...and the food bowl was empty...
Monday I have an appt with a school in the area about setting up an out of school care program. Phew, so much. I bought the kids a small trampoline on Thursday, which they absolutely love! Its only a 8x8 one but soooo perfect for my tiny backyard. It came with an enclosure but they didnt' want it on...its NOT high off the ground like our big one at the lake. They were happy with it. Friday, I took them down to my moms house. Then I had to drive my aunt to the airport. I had an eye appt and got my prescription for my new glasses, my other ones are SO so very old. I only use/need them for far distances. So today I went and picked out my new ones. They are Point Zero and they are *nice* glasses, I can't wait to get them. They look pretty good on me too. Also, I went to Walmart today got some new garden things. Some stuff to pretty up the front porch. Then I went to Superstore and picked up my 100 cards pictures. I got them made to announce our wedding to friends and family Even though they already know, these cards are something at least. It has a nice pic of Fabe and I and it says "we finally did it! Married Aprial 4, 2007 in Las Vegas Tara and Fabian". So now I have the fun job of getting addresses of ALL of our family and mailing them out (fun!).
I am still sitting in a house, that I feel needs to be totally cleaned..but I just can't. Maybe tomorrow. I bought floor wax and everything in all intentions to make my house so pretty...but I can't.
Last night, Fabe and I went out for supper and a couple drinks together. Its been forever...I didn't feel much like it, but I am very happy that he 'made' me.

It has command start, an alarm and a really awesome stereo with removable face plate. It was used by a Shaw tech before, thats why the KMS are high (380) but for the price and the condition it still has LOTS of life left..these trucks last forever...my dh just bought a newer one today of this kind.

After that, I went and picked up Kenendy from my MIL's house and then brought her back to work with me for a few hours. Then we headed home, and I got her ready for dance. It was a busy, straining day and I am looking really forward to tomorrow to get out of the city and head to the lake for a weekend. My friend and her kids are coming out with us too. Fabe is off, so thats nice.
