I never realized that a 4 year-old could have so much attitude. And that a 3 year-old could be so ornery. And that a 14 month-old could cry sooo much. Holy heck. I'm slowly going insane. My husband is out of town, so that leaves me to be the sole crazy person. It's Thursday, right? One more day, one more day, one more day....

The onion smell has gone. I got rid of it. It smells much nicer down here now. Ahh... Wanna know the gross part? No? Oh c'mon. I know you do! It was coming from the drain in the floor that the utility sink drains into. Nice huh. (barf!) I poured bleach down the drain and then hot water and then I ran hot water in the sink for several minutes. Then I plugged up the sink, put in laundry soap, and let it fill up a ways and then let it out. I did that a couple of times. I thought the "flushing" of the drain would get rid of the smell and it did! I'm so happy now!

About the page layout. I am sooooo HTML challenged, that I'm not sure I'll ever get it changed. I do have my header, but other than that.... I'm still thinking about changing it though. ;)

I'm trying to update

the look of my blog, thanks to Lei and others. I'm not a computer savvy person at all, so bear with me. :)

My laundry room smells like onions

And it's really disgusting. I like onions, but I don't want to have a room in my house smelling like them. And the odd part is that it's only on the one half of the room. I guess that means I should clean in there and see where the onion odor is coming from. Please don't let it be a rotten onion. I think I would puke. And if you're wondering why there would be a rotten onion, or any onion in there, it would be because my kitchen and my laundry room used to share the same room. There was a time when my main cooking sources were a toaster oven, microwave and electric skillet. And I did dishes in my utility sink and we stocked up our mini fridge. But then we finished the "real" kitchen and I cook in the basement no more. Although, my son still refers to the laundry room as the kitchen. Anyway...I digress. Onion in the laundry room because it used to bunk with the kitchen. Got it?

I braved life today and we invited one of Reagan's best friends over. They were pretty good and even though Ryan was being a total punk, everyone seemed to get along well. Ryan did come downstairs towards the end of her time here and pouted to me that he didn't have a friend. So I played with him a little and he was okay. After getting the kids in bed, I ran to Target and Helzberg diamonds to see what the charge would be to get my wedding ring resized. My fingers are a little fatter than 8 years ago and wearing my wedding band makes my finger sore. Now I'm home and should be heading to bed soon.

Relaxation...sort of.

Today is the first day in a while where I don't feel like I have a big rush to get something done. It's so nice! I was in charge of our primary's activity on Saturday and being the last minute planner that I am, it went surprisingly well. A few parents said that their kids had a great time. Sometimes I think I get too caught up in doing things that the parents will think is cool and not what the kids will like. This time I tried to not care about that and it went, for the most part, smoothly. As we were leaving the church, it was pouring down rain. I mean the kind of downpour where you run 20 feet and your clothes are drenched. The kids thought it was a blast to have daddy run carrying them and throw them into the back of the van. After we were all in, I realized I forgot to lock the church! Crap! So I was ultra-soaked.

I have so many projects lined up that I don't think I'll ever get them done. I think I need to write them all down and try to have them all done in a certain time frame, or I know I'll never get them done. I'm starting to feel like I need another 12 hours added on to my day, so I can get everything done.

This week is our 8 year anniversary! It seems so weird do have it be that long. Like, when did we become grown-ups?! We aren't old enough to have a 4 year old! And a house and a minivan! Gosh! We will probably celebrate our day on Saturday though, since my husband will be out of town on that day. Plus, Friday night is Bunko night! I'm looking forward to that. Even though I will feel all that anxiety again. I worry too much. Just be me. I need to put that on a magnet or something or have that be my mantra.

I'm trying to clean my whole house this week. Let's see if I can do it! I'm so lazy... lol

Summer break is over

I have had one heckuva busy summer. It went faster than I ever thought it would/could. My kids grew and had fun. I had a vacation by myself, which was great. Came home and took a vacation with the family and that was fun too. Going to the beach is surprisingly fun with three kids aged 4, 3 and 1. I missed my 10 year high school reunion, but got to meet up with an girl I went to school with and she filled me in on most everyone's life. I got my hair cut and my best friend highlighted it. My best friend also had her baby on the 4th of July. Baby William. :) He's cute.

Life has been hard on me lately, but I keep praying that I'll get the strength I need each day and just live it one day at a time. I am planning a Primary Activity for Saturday. It should be fun!

Well, I need to feed my kids lunch. Hopefully I'll keep this going, because I know how much you all missed me. ;)
