I pulled a "Shirlyn Doman"

I did it.
I admit it.
I pulled a "Shirlyn" and I liked it.

I didnt plan on a FHE cause we just got back from camping over the weekend.
And I'm the type of person that says "hey...we're together, we're doing somemthing so its family time" and I count it for FHE.
(it doesnt matter to me if its monday or not...family time is family time)

So last night Mike asked for a hair cut...i groannnned and said "sure, I guess."
then Braydens like well I want a hair cut too!
mike got a haircut
and the girls got a trim only.
and in the back of my head I thought to myself
this sooooo counts as a FHE!!!
I mean come on!....we were all sitting there together
so it SHOULD count...right! ;)

SUMMER GOALS <----sounds exciting...right!

I cant wait for summer to SHOW UP already! :)

And this summer is going to be different for us.
By the time summer rolls around Im excited and then not sooo excited.
As a working mom you dred summer cause theres really nothing you can do during the weeks of summer break. 
 your kids are stuck inside or out in the backyard and
your house is ALWAYS messier then you left it that morning.
Im tired of crappy summer weeks.
I cant stay home this summer but I can do some things to make it a bit better.
I have issued some GOALS for all 5 us.

Shawni over at 71 toes (whom by the way I just simply adore and wish I could be as awesome as she is.) 
they have summer goals and she also wants to turn her kids into bookworms. and I thought I sooo want to do this!
This will be PERFECT for the summer dred.

So, last night I talked to the kids about it and so far they are excited!
there are 3 areas of goals
1- physical
2- spiritual
3- mental
We will also be going to the Library atleast twice a month and I expect book reports! :)

So by Sunday they will present me their goals and on Monday we head to the Library and
we will have started!!

Here's to better Summer weeks!!

What would you yap about...?

I happen to LOVE following the blog Nesting Place. She has given the challenge or oppurtunity to her readers to write about something for 31 days. And I thought HOW FUN!!  But then I was like Ohh. I dont have anything worth while to say...let along for 31 days!! Ohhh but I could comment on sarcasm as a second language....or, how to survive in a disorganized life....or, how to barely survive as a mother and totally feel guilty about it....or, How to shop till ya drop!  Basically my 31 days would be pretty negative. Its not like I always have a negative attitude or anything but lets face it....I lead a pretty simple yet boring life. I mean theres TONS of stuff I wish I could yap about...but I'm not really good at those things... So it got me thinking...what would you have fun yapping about for 31 days? What would you think I could yap about? Theres no way I would make my writtings public, but it would be a FUN challenge...just to do for yourself.
