Well it's Tuesday. I have been to work this morning and was finished by 10:30. That's not bad considering I did some extra cleaning while I was there and not just the usual going over. Just wish I could experience that kind of momentum when it comes to cleaning my house.

Speaking of cleaning my house, I took a look-see at the FlyLady site to see what's on the to-do list for this week according to her list. This week is the master bedroom. I know it really wouldn't take that long to clean my room and FlyLady doesn't even expect you to do the whole thing in a day. How long is it she wants? 15 minutes I think. Now I started off good this morning. I spent 15 minutes and tidied up the living room before I went to work. You know you would be really surprised at just what you can do with 15 minutes. I couldn't see the top of my desk, let alone the couch. No I didn't go into detail and make sure every little piece went back exactly like it's supposed to but it's close enough and if I have unexpected company I won't be ashamed to let them in the door. I was going to start on my room, but then my tummy growled. It decided lunch was far more important than a clean room.

Egg and Cheese sandwich with just a little mayo. Mmmmmm I bought some different eggs yesterday at the grocery. Usually I just grab whatever and go. As long as the eggs aren't broke and their cheap, in the cart they go. Well, I've been trying to see things in a "greener" light. So yesterday I opted for the Cage Free brown eggs. I would have liked to bought the organic cage free eggs, but at $3 something a carton, I'm afraid they just were not in my budget. Well I can't taste any difference in my egg sandwich, but if the chickens have a better life than it was all right.

Well, enough play time. The washer is buzzing and my room is crying, "Clean me. Please clean me." Have a good day!!

New Layout

I found this awesome new layout at http://www.btemplates.com ! I think this suits me much better.

The kids went to Youth Group this evening. I believe that it is really rubbing off on Matthew. I turned around to tell everyone to get ready for bed and he was already stretched out with his eyes closed. I saw his lips moving. Ahhh praying before bed. That's really good. Now if Hallie can just come along too.

While the kids were at Youth Group, I went to Wal-Mart. I know I say it a hundred times, that I can't stand that store anymore. I really do mean it. But it's about all there is in this little bitty one horse town. I went to look at digital cameras. No I did not buy one. I want to kind of. But I know my camera has got to be floating around this house somewhere and why spend that kind of money for something you already have? But I was finally able to do something this evening. I went into Wal-Mart and didn't buy anything at all!!! I think I deserve a pat on the back.

I looked for things for a new craft project but decided I had enough UFO's lying around all ready. I have decided that I will not start another project until everything else is completed. So here's what's on my to-do list:
  1. Finish fat man- All I have left to do is make his head
  2. A quilt I started on last year- this will be a full size quilt
  3. and the Block of the Month quilt I signed up for on MJF- I am really really behind on this one. I think this one is supposed to be a twin size quilt.
  4. A back pack style purse

I believe this is all I have left waiting for me to finish. As soon as I hit the publish button, I'll probably remember something else.

Dude I got a Dell!

Hahahaha Whatever happened to those commercials? So the old computer died yet again. I am tired of trying to keep breathing life into it. I broke down this past weekend and went to Best Buy and treated myself to a new pc. Yes a Dell. I didn't go looking for a Dell. I was actually going to get an eMachines. Yeah the eMachines was cheaper, but also had less space on the hard drive and less memory. I decided that the Dell would be a better buy for me considering that I use my pc to store my pictures, music and what-not. I can wind up with a 100-something pics of Hallie alone. That is when I have my camera! Speaking of which I know a couple of girls that need to go clean their bedroom and find my camera.
