Shame on me. I haven't blogged since Saturday. I've thought about it, several times...but I was either busy, tired, or not sure what to blog about and never got around to posting... I also had a hard time posting because I was to busy scratching off a limb or two from all the damn mosquito bites I have.
Sunday we were busy all day, we had a party to attend at our friends Dan & Cindy's house. We got there around 12:30, and didn't get home until 11:30 p.m.. It was a great day of fun, friends, swimming, food, and fireworks. I took 300 pictures Sunday. I'm not going to post all of them, don't worry :) I have made some collages though so I can share many without posting a crapload. Most of the pictures are of Bree, because she is the one I have to follow around all day and keep an eye on so she is the one with the most pictures. Jilly was in the pool 99% of the time we were there. She only got out to eat, pee, and watch the fireworks...at the time of the fireworks she was tired and whiny. Kels was mingling with everyone so I don't have a ton of pics of her. Anyways, here you are, enjoy:
Poor Bree, she didn't like the noisey fireworks. Bill asked her the next day if she liked them she said, "NO! They were to loud!" Bree ended up cuddling with me to watch the fireworks, she had both ears covered and I helped cover the one ear...and she fell asleep that way. Bill never made it to the party. He was going to drive there after waking up (he worked the night before and needed a few hours sleep before heading over), but he didn't wake up until around 6 p.m. so he just stayed home, since he had to work that night too.
Monday was a day of cranky people. All of us were tired, and not in the greatest of moods. Everyone needed a nap. Thankfully Bree took one, I tried, but didn't succeed. Monday we mainly just lazed around, recooperated from the weekend.
Tuesday I continued to laze around. Today I've been busy all day. I finally got off my butt again and did some much needed housework. I had slacked a few days and felt guilty. I cleaned my kitchen really good, moved around all my kitchen appliances (if I can't move my furniture right now I might as well move the appliances right?!), cleaned the counter tops, fridge, washed the floor on my hands & knees, all that fun stuff. I also got the bathroom cleaned well, and the living room as well. Of course now the living room looks dirty again, thanks to the kids, but it was clean for a while...
This afternoon while I was getting stuff picked up in the livingroom to vacuum, Jilly asked Bree to go hang out in their bedroom and play, since Bree isn't a fan of the vacuum. Jilly came out after a bit to find her DS, leaving Bree alone in the bedroom. Bree saw her chance and climbed up onto the top bunk, where she isn't allowed to go. While she was up there she managed to pull the ceiling fan out of the ceiling. Kels walked by the bedroom and saw her doing it and quickly got her out of there. So there was a fan dangling from the ceiling till Bill got home. Thankfully she did this about 30 min. before he got home so it wasn't to long. Upon his arrival I showed him what she did, and told him how it happened. He said a few choice words and went to the task of fixing it. Apparently it wasn't all Bree's fault, whoever installed the fan before he bought the house didn't do it properly. It took him quite a while to fix it, he had to go up in the hot hot attic, and I heard many a cuss words coming from up there, but it is now fixed, properly. Here is what the dusty fan looked like...
Thats about all thats happened around here. Other than me spending way to much time in the john. I swear, I'm in there over half the day! Between my over active poop shoot, and Bree wanting me in there every time she has to go potty, and giving her a bath and stuff, I spend way to much time in there. I need a laptop so I can blog while I'm in there ;) Haha.
Today should be Renee's Recipe Round-Up day...but I am thinking of skipping it this week because I'm to darn tired right now to blog about it. The last few weeks it doesn't seem like anyone has been interested in it anyways. Maybe summer time isn't a good time for it, everyone is out and about to busy to blog recipes. What do you think?
QOTD: Did you set off any fireworks for the 4th of July?
