Days 57, 58 & 59


Tonight Samantha and Jacob are using the computers. Samantha is on MySpace and Jacob is starting his History project that he had 2 weeks to finish (due tomorrow).


I wanted to get a photo of Samantha's vanity table all put together. Now if we could just find space in the room she shares with Olivia it would be out of our living room.

We had our garage sale today. Jason bought us donuts to enjoy while we got set up. I had to put "Not For Sale" on all that stuff behind him and Olivia so people would stop asking how much we wanted for those things that still need to go to the new house.

56/365 Little White Vanity Table

Today I finished painting Samantha's vanity table. Before Jason and I got married, I found this on the curb of my neighbor's house and rescued it. I always planned to paint it and I finally got around to it.

55/365 This Fridge Is Clean

I spent part of my afternoon in the old garage cleaning up a refrigerator we have up for sale on craigslist. If it doesn't sell, we'll try and exchange it for a freezer.

54/365 It's COLOSSAL!

I just bought some new mascara. I had some really cheap stuff that I've hated since I bought it. I can't wait to try this.

53/365 Before & After

Here are our bar stools. The one on the right has the first coat of paint. Every wood chair in our kitchen is being painted black. Now we will have a look of continuity.

New and Improved Layouts

After I got started on this project, I realized that I wasn't happy with my layouts. I ordered the Life 365 Tool Box kit from Weeds and Wildflowers and went back and started over. I've finally completed all of January. I have all my weeks ending on Saturday so my first week is only 3 days. Here are my January layouts.....

53/365 Fix Those Computers

Tonight Jason was busy upgrading the 3 computers in the loft. The kids that live here are very fortunate indeed.

51/365 Blog Background Makeover

Today I tried my hand at making my own blog background. It was fun coming up with a theme and then finding things to stick on my "bulletin board". Now I can always change the things that are displayed every month or whenever the mood hits.

50/365 Cake Mix Cookies

Since all the kids are home on Thursdays, I made cake mix cookies. This is the second time...the first was with devil's food cake mix. I will only make them with the devil's food mix from now on.

49/365 Just Kickin' Back

While Jason sits at his computer, Elvis and I kick back on the bed. Actually, he didn't really want to hang out with me...he's just humoring me.

Days 46, 47 & 48

I guess I've been slacking a bit. Here are my next pictures....


We are losers. But only in the way that we did not win the lottery. I mean, we are totally cool otherwise.


I went to the chiropractor and received the last 3 patches for my back. These have been fantastic in the aid to reduce the inflammation in my disc that has caused me such pain with sciatica.

I would have titled this one "DO YOU WANT TO SEE SOMETHING REALLY SCARY"
What you cannot see in this photo is the cat's litter box that lives here, too. I thought getting that in the shot would have just been too much for the faint of heart.

45/365 Farkle

Tonight was a small group...just me, Jason, Samantha and her friend Bridgid. We played the game Farkle. Very fun...go google it and play with a group of friends. :)

44/365 There Be Computers Here Captain

We have the computers in the loft now and I just need to hang the over sized magnetic board that I made.

43/365 Long Computer Desk

I needed a 10 foot long desk in the loft for the kids computers. I figured the best way to get what I needed was to make it myself. Here is the completed project.

42/365 Idol

Even though I don't watch television very often, I spent the end of my night watching American Idol. The judges now have their 36 contestants that will go on to compete. I don't plan my time around shows so I probably will only watch occasionally.

41/365 Lap Cat

Elvis is using me for warmth as I sit in my jammies at my computer in the early morning. I love how he is resting his head on the desk.

40/365 Free Citrus

Jason brought home some citrus fruit from work on Friday. This grapefruit is delicious. I've eaten 2 today. I eat them like my Grandma Lundberg ate them...I peel it and eat the sections like an orange. Yummy.

39/365 It Really Sucks

In the closet near the entry way, lives the most wonderful vacuum cleaner. It's part of my new central vac...and I love it. I used the small attachment to vacuum the kitchen instead of sweeping. I used the part that you see hooked up on the carpet. Dreamy!

38/365 Fan Man

Jason is busy hanging the fan in our loft. He already hung a fan in the girls' room. Soon he will hang fans in the boys' rooms. I'm so lucky to have such a handy man!

37/365 The Chair

Here is the first chair from my dining room set to be painted black. I was trying to stain them to match the table top, but Suzee made a great suggestion to just paint them black to match the table legs. Now why didn't I think of that?

36/365 Who Made This Mess?

Words cannot do this picture justice. I wonder if Jacob realizes just how bad his room looks. I'm sure he would blame it on the move.

Days 29-35/365


My sleeping beauties. This is how Elvis and JB pass most of their time.


This is a picture of the new kitchen. I'm just hanging out waiting on the Cox Cable guy to show up. I'm also in serious pain with sciatica.

I actually had no photo on this day so I'm using this image to represent why I didn't take one. I am in total agony.

Our bed is quite difficult to put back together. Those big drawers aren't working properly.

Elvis is all alone. My JB snuck out the night before and nobody realized it. He hasn't come home and we don't know if he will.

Jason has taken care of me once again. I hadn't been able to do any blogging since my pc wasn't put together. Tonight when I got home from work, this was waiting for me. Thanks honey!

Here I am in my new glasses that I just picked up today. I'm smiling, but I'm still in lots of pain. Today at the chiropractor I got some Wei Patches. I will go through a series of 6 patches that are supposed to help with my sciatica pain.
