Project 365-Week 17

Sunday, April 19th

A Pony Show! Marryn loves to get her toys out and give us a "show." Although I think she enjoys the setting up part the most. She spends all her time setting up the stage and audience seating and ticket counter that by the time we sit down to actually watch the show, she really doesn't have a whole lot for us. And, surprisingly, she gets a little shy...and I do mean, surprisingly...

We had some nice weather that late in the afternoon, we all went outside to play...in the dirt. Can't wait to get our backyard put in. While the kids played, I pulled weeds. It was actually nice to get down and dirty outside.

Reganne fell asleep watching cartoons. She still needs her naps, but sometimes it's such a fight and then, just like her big sis, she's up until midnight with us, so sometimes I let it slide...only to find her like this later (like at 4-5pm, what a great time for a nap).

In honor of Earth Day I thought I'd share a little something we have been doing to *Reuse*... (you know, reduce, reuse, recycle...) I have a hard time reusing. I like new stuff. Years ago we inherited a bunch of wide mouth canning jars that we turned into glasses. LOVE them, only they are a little mismatched. Which is fine if they all were, but there are 4 of one and then 2 other oddballs. So one day, after opening a jar of Whole Foods spaghetti sauce, we noticed what a nice jar it was. We cleaned off the label (which was really easy, not like other brands...) and decided we'd reuse the jars as our new glasses. We now are up to a set of 8.

My mom found 2 of my princess crowns (from my pageant days, he he...but seriously I did pageants as a little girl) and then gave us Garrett's (my youngest bro's) king wand thing he won in high school-what can I say, my family's royalty;) I'm a little protective of the crowns (everything else I won burned up in my family's house fire...a whole other story...it was on my birthday, a month after Landen died...rough summer for us...), but I will let them wear them a little, if they're good. And BTW, Reganne is wearing Christian's pj pants...OVER her pants. Don't ask how that worked...

So, my kids are still semi-sick. The girls are coughing up their lungs. But what can you do about it? Nothing really. I've got the humidifier on in their rooms and I've been giving them honey (not Christian!) by the spoonful. Marryn's been getting some breathing treatments. Helps a little. But I think it's just something that we have to wait out.

So, if you know me, you know that I can be a little timid. A little shy. A little quiet. I've gotten better over the years, but still not great. So we need to have our lawn aerated. I was upstairs and saw our neighbors doing our other neighbor's lawn. I told Joey he needed to go ask them to do ours. Well, he had just got out of the shower and wasn't going to do it. If I wanted it that bad, I could go ask myself.
WHAT?!?!?! Ask MYSELF?!?!?!
And I am proud to report that I did.
Ten bucks and our lawn was aerated. I even talked to them about doing our sprinklers and putting up our fence.
Even Joey said he was surprised that I actually went out there;).
