Doors.

Next week Margot has to do the doors. They are pretty intense since our house isn't square and so she has to make cuts on each door side. We have brushed nickel door hardware and I think it really makes the room have a nice, warm, feel.

We have also purchased brushed nickel outlet plates and light switch covers. It's surprising what an extra $75 can do for a boring room!

Happy Halloween!

The kids ate way too much candy and to say the least...they have crashed! Friends left at 8pm and everyone was pretty wired.

The good thing is the candy didn't keep them awake and by 8:15pm they were in their pajamas, teeth brushed, and sleeping!

Now it's mama time on the couch.

Merry Christmas!

The other day the boyscouts came to my door. I try to sponsor all of the kids and so far we have 3 boxes of cookies coming, soccer popcorn, and carmel corn popcorn.

They were offering a pretty expensive christmas wreath but I just couldn't justify spending $35 for an organization that I really don't want to support in the first place!!

We purchased a wreath last year and it's in the basement. Margot hated it and thought it was tacky so I'm not even sure that it made the move!

3 more pumpkins...

to go!

We have four pumpkins that need to get cut. Tonight we did the smallest pumpkin that we're calling Emmy's pumpkin. Tomorrow we'll do Graem's pumpkin. Then it's on to the mamas. I'm not sure what I'm going to do for mine. Maybe I'll just do a big hole. I really like the ones I've seen that have the pumpkin barfing up smaller pumpkins.

Owwie.

Margot has awful skin. Today the heater guy came out and tried to sell us on getting a dehumidifier for our new furnace. The last time we got a furnace we got the dehumidifier.

I wash shocked that the heater guy said that by having one you have better skin and it even reduces eczema. I've always looked for eczema treatment. Currently, Margot is using a cortisone cream that isn't very good for her and many times it really doesn't help with the itching and dry skin.

DAMN.

We just got our first DVD from Netflix and I think it's the wrong edition. I wanted Clash of the Titans and I think we got the 1950 version.

SHIT.

Once again, Netflix gone bad! Most of the time we just don't watch the movie at all. Now we actually have the movie, are sitting here, and it's the wrong damn one!

So tired.

It doesn't matter how much sleep I get...I'm exhausted. When I wake up in the morning it looks like I have been up all night and I have bags under my eyes!

I took at a look at www.removedarkcirclesundereyes.net and I'm quite impressed! Not only does it give great ideas on how to get rid of these circles but it also offers a solution!

I'm so there. Plus, I need more sleep. Maybe these kids will sleep on this weekend.

Clash of the Titans.

We are doing Netflix again. Margot signed up for it thinking that we might have some awesome options to watch on the watch instantly option.

Not so much. They had horrible movies and I was shocked to see that they had NO movies that had a rating over three stars.

Bust.

Christmas ideas?

I have absolutely no idea what I'm getting ANYONE for Christmas. The kids have made no requests. Margot's easy. It's like christmas gift ideas for boyfriend!

I got her a pressure assisted toilet for her birthday and I might just do the same and get her one for Christmas too.

She's a lucky girl!

That's what she gets for getting me a vacuum cleaner for my housewife gift when I resigned from work!

Potty training?

Well, it's not going so good. Emmy is so strong willed that she has no desire to go potty and it doesn't matter what I offer up. She doesn't mind peeing or making poo in a diaper.

Today I got so desperate I told her that Santa wouldn't come if she still went in her diaper.

Damn, that's horrible.

Reduce, reuse, recycle.

Tomorrow I'm going to stop by the local reuse store and drop off blinds, a toilet, and two doors. Since, we're redoing our house we have tons of stuff that is still in good shape, just not our preference!

We figure we can get the tax write off and someone out there would love to have these working items.

Move it, move it!

My friend, L, got a new elliptical. It's in her basement and I think she has yet to actually use it. Even though she spent a fortune on it. I know it's really all about ambition and motivation. I do not know if I am quite there yet. When I do things I do them with everything I have and I truly commit. I must say that my interest is peaked though and I have been looking around! I came across the Brazilian Butt Lift and it looks like a pretty good gig. Not to mention, the results really speak for themselves. Margot looked at the local gym the other night and right now they are running a special on the membership. However, we really have to ask ourselves if after we pay the membership fee and a year of workout fee - are we really going to go? Working out at home sounds ideal. Not only could we hang out in comfortable clothing and do our own thing at our own pace but we can listen to our own music and the added benefit is that we could do it when the kids are sleeping in the evening! Never would there be a time when we could/would both leave to go to the gym and pay a babysitter! If we are going to go then it is money well spent. I would go out tomorrow and sign up. BUT...I know it is not that easy. More than likely we'd drop the $500 and then make excuses, set false deadlines, and then feel like a real loser when January 1st comes around and we have gained 10 pounds.

When I read the reviews I couldn't get over the comments from all body types and sizes. Not only did they have these skinny girls who just had 10 pounds to lose. They also had larger people and even some older people who often struggle to lose unwanted weight. Brazillian Butt lift sounds incredible. Not only does it use awesome Brazillian music but it also has different mixes of exercise such as cardio, ballet, and traditional cardio.

You should really check out what they are saying in the brazilian butt-lift workout reviews!

Nervous.

Tomorrow I have a cardiologist appointment. I'm not so nervous about it because I'm guessing everything is fine or else I would have heard about it by now!

I am more nervous about going to the public school and seeing what it's like. What if it's a bust? WHat if the teachers suck and the kids are crazy and out of control? I know there's always one kid and god knows, at some point we might have to deal with that one kid being Emmy.

BUT...I just hope that everything works out. We love the school and the principal and we can feel good about where our kid goes to school!

Feeling WIRED.

TOnight I drank way too much soda and to say the least I think I have a few hours left! Which is good because I'm loaded with tons of blogging. YAY!

I was quite productive this afternoon and mowed the yard and moved the leaves to the back of the yard (and neighbor's yard) with the riding mower. TG RIDING MOWER!

Then we started up on the bedroom. We patched all of the holes and took apart the windows.

Tomorrow we'll sand and wash down the walls. We might even start to do trim and ceiling if we feel really motivated.

Gold and silver are ...

my best friends!

One thing that never loses it’s value is gold coins! Even when our stocks are floundering you can always look to silver, gold, and precious metals to maintain their value. Our friend, L, has had gold bullion in her portfolio for the past few years and we constantly compare. Despite the crashing economy - she's always in the black!

I'm sure she's looking to buy gold with her tax refund money!

US Gold Bureau offers silver, gold, and other precious metals for delivery or they will make arrangements to have your metals stored privately and securely at a bank or depository.

I didn’t realize this but US Gold Bureau is an industry leader. They sell gold in two forms: coin or ingot. The world demand now exceeds the supply demand for gold - which makes it a pretty smart investment.

We have a second bathroom!

Margot finished the bathroom TODAY! We're up and running and it's pure heaven! The shower works great and it's totally perfect. The heated flooring feels really nice, and my favorite part is the cushy rug I got.

It's so nice to have a second bathroom! I feel like we're just not getting to reap the benefits!

I'm OK.

I went for my cardiologist appointment Friday and I think I'm going to live. They did and ECHO of my heart and didn't see any red flags. THANK GOD. I was totally stressed out and of course, the thing that kept racing through my mind was either I was going to have clogged arteries OR congestive heart failure.

I should really stop watching Grey's Anatomy. I always think the worse.

Maybe beauty school?

Of course, that is not my style. To drop out...that is.

One of my friends is a Cosmetologist and I am constantly amazed at how well she does financially! She also works as an airline attendant for American Airlines. When she doesn't have assignments she goes right back to her Cosmetology background and ALWAYS has a job waiting for her!

I think she might have gone to a cosmetology school in Phoenix where she was raised.

These days I have been looking at going back to work. I wrestled with the idea of doing real estate and getting my license but maybe I should look for a back up plan in case that does not work.

RegencyBeauty.com offers Cosmetology school in many different areas and they are an industry leader.

Worker bee.

Tomorrow I'm helping a friend out and then I have some work in the afternoon. It's Wednesday and so Emmy's in preschool and then I'll pick up Graem after I finish up.

For some reason I have a feeling that I'll end up doing my reports in the evening because the days just aren't long enough!

Maybe I should just take some Nyquil and go to bed early tonight!

Too much crying.

Right now Graem is in her room crying.

Supposedly, Emmy was looking at her cross eyed and Graem was hyper sensitive about it. So we took Emmy out of the room.

Now Graem is screaming at the top of her lungs and doesn't want to be alone.

I think it's the combination of Graem being super tired and...she's getting older. And bitchy.

Gold!

A little help...

I've been looking to different supplements that might help me feel better. I read up about l-dopa and it has such great benefits that a lot of people don't even realize.

I've been thinking about going to the local Y and getting a membership. I figure I'm going to go the natural route to try and lose weight. GOd knows with the winter coming it's going to be nearly impossible to stay in and lose these unwanted pounds!

SO TIRED.

I have been sleeping horrible the past few nights.

At least I was able to sleep in today. But it's 8:43 and I'm exhausted.

Maybe I'll hook up with some Nyquil tonight so that I can sleep good.

That was fun!

We had a really good vacation in Canada. In fact, it was perfect.

We met up with cousins and aunts and uncles and the kids LOVED it. They played for hours and didn't want to go to sleep!

OF course, reentry has been a total bizotch. Both kids want to stay up late and can't seem to go to bed. Then morning hits and it's hell!

Hopefully, over the next week or so we'll get situated and the kids can get back to a regular schedule.

Running?

Me?

So I've thought about getting in shape and very honestly if we're thinking about having another baby then it's a MUST.

I looked online for some running shorts and haven't been able to find the perfect pair. I figure I want something light and airy BUT...I can't have everything hanging out!

Maybe I'll just stick with swimming.
