Help and paint and sugar and old pics




Ok. Seriously, I want a new layout for my blog. I had mentioned something to Jaymi but anyone with any knowledge on how I would go about asking and/or paying for someone to help or do it for me would be greatly appreciated. I don't need anything terribly fancy. Just something different than the ole pink setting. I've looked at the other basic layouts, and every time I try one out, I freak and switch back cuz my words look different!

HELP! Oh, and I sooooo don't understand the whole html or other gobbledy gook on the template page, and haven't the time to figure it out (pre-kids, I would have been all over it till I had it down myself... sigh). So telling me how to do it myself probably won't cut it.

On to happier news!! The bedroom, she is FINISHED!!! (insert me doing the can-can here). It looks WAY better than I thought at about 12:00 today as I was swearing on the phone to my sister while I tried to pry the blue painter's tape off of the wall without peeling the red paint off. Many many many swear words. Her poor ears... BUT. After touching up a bit, and just saying "screw it," I have decided it looks pretty nice. I WILL take pictures, but I don't have a digital, so they may not be posted for several months as it will require me to finish the roll and actually drop it off at WalGreens. Yeah. Whooo... I'm exhausted just typing that sentence, let alone actually doing it. Have you ever been into a store with 2 - 3 kids that don't listen very well and have to do JUST ONE THING? It's not too tempting to go in there. BUT I WILL. Hold tight. You WILL see the pictures. I know you're sitting on the edge of your seats, bashing the computer screens in agony, but wait you MUST.

I have to assemble the 2 dressers that are sitting in my hallway, finish sorting through the mountain of crap that was in my closet (cuz I thought it would be a brilliant idea to follow through on the whole "clean, new room" thing and empty it out.), and THEN clean out the upstairs hallway cuz it is now overflowing with stuff that will not be going into my bedroom again. I will say that I have 4 big bags of stuff for AmVets and I'm still pitching stuff every day. YAY! Gotta love purging! (but not the puking one. Not so much on that one... ewwww)

Can you tell I have a slight sugar high?!? I had some Pepsi Jazz diet stuff that Patrick brought home. THANKS HONEY. I'm flying high!

Evan found the fart machine today and had quite a fun time running behind me and holding it to my butt while he pushed the button. Yeah, a GREAT toy. And WHO does it belong to?

Duh. My HUSBAND. Who else?

But the batteries died today (darn) after which Justin told me it was ok because he can make fart noises with his armpit. I'm so proud!

I think I'll see if I can find any good pics and then I'm off to DO something. Not sure what. I do know that it's probably not a good idea to be eating these banana Laffy Taffy's right now, but DUDE - they are SO GOOD.

Ok. Random shot #1. July 2005 in Mathiesson SP, IL. We were hiking in caves and what-not and my husband was posing that he was "discovering" a new cave. Yes. He's a nerd. But I love him. I am 6 month pregnant and my sister had her 4 month old in a carrier, covered with netting to shield from the mosquitoes. BUT the weather was the hottest ever that weekend (98 and humid) so it was difficult, to say the least.




This next one is also July 05. It may look like Evan is lovingly kissing my preggo belly. But look closer, and you'll see that he was actually zerberting my stomach. Sweet to his little sister from day one.
