My week vacation is coming to an end. Where did I go you ask? Mexico? Florida? Nowhere. I stayed home and played mommy all week. Eddie spent the week building a desk with 2 workstations for the girls and a two bookcases with a center piece. Can't wait until everything is all done so I can take pictures. Without going into too much detail it took six people to install the top half of the bookcases. They are in, it took about 45 minutes to insall it. It looks great. Eddie still needs to cut and paint the shelves, so I can't wait. Then the office will be complete.

Other things that have taken place this week. I have potty trained Emma for the 2nd time this year. She's at least 90% potty trained.

Also I got all my laundry washed, dryed, and put away. At night I wash the clothes we wear for that day. Throw them in the dryer in the morning, and the fold. No more laundry build up.

I've watched Transformers at least a dozen times.

I helped put together out church carnival,

I need a vacation from my vacation.

My First Real Buisness Trip

Went to Madison, WI this past Wed night. Almost didn't make it. Right before boarding, my name was called. The lady at the counter said that there were only 50 seats and I was number 51. So they offered $250 and a hotel stay. Tempting but I had a 8:30 meeting in te morning, so I had to be on that plane. I suggested to my boss that he stay and I go. Thank God at the last minute one passenger didn't show, so we both got to get on the plane. When I got there, I immediately went to a gift shop and bought a sweatshirt, because it was 50 degrees outside, and I was wearing a short sleeve shirt and crop pants. Meeting went well and I boarded the plane to come home at 4:45.... On the descent, a little north of Frisco, my right ear started to hurt bad. I mean so bad that I couldn't bear the pain. After about 5-10 minutes, the pain subsided, but I couldn't hear well out of that ear at all, and my ear wouldn't pop. Got home and when I went to sleep I still couldn't hear right. I woke up this morning, able to hear, but the ear still feels like it needs to pop. I hope it gets better.

Way to go Eddie.

New Rule, the Only Rule

So we now have only 1 rule in our house.. before yesterday we had many rules.
No biting
No fighting
No talking back
No mocking

All point to the negative... Our new rule points to the positive.

Be Kind and Loving

That's it... if the girls are fighting I ask "Are you being kind and loving?"
if they are mocking each other "Are you being kind and loving?"
When I'm yelling at the top of my lungs because they are yelling at each other and can't hear me... "Am I being kind and loving????"

Confirmed... poop is funny

Isabel came around to Eddie and I saying that she had a secret.
So she whispered in my ear "Emma pooped"

Emma who likes to imitate her sister wanted to tell a secret too.
So she whispered in my ear "I pooped"

I died laughing.... this goes to prove Jeff's point... poop is funny.

Sunday school does pay off

So I asked Isabel to pick up her puzzles.
Isabel: "But I want you to help me."
Me: "No, I'm busy cooking you need to pick them up"
Isabel" "But remember at church we learned 'Help one another'?" So that means you have to help me.

At this point all I could say was "you're right" and I helped her pick them up.
