some things that need to be said and I will clue you all in soon. Lots of changes and a sale coming up. Just wanted you all to visit this blog love the colors but most of all the decision Laura has made. The recently had a son and she has decided to stay home and be a momma. I have soo much respect for her, granted I will miss her at the Arts and Humanities council, who will get my donations now? But the fact that they are making it work for her family and son is an experience lots of us only wish we could do or could have done.

I know its been over a week. And honestly I cannot tell you what I have accomplished but being a taxi for a green eyed 11 year old honestly. Sunday we did some dirt work (again) and pulled out ivy along the house. Along with the ivy we discovered our sewer pipes and a water spicket we didnt know we had. Wont much longer we decided to cap it because we never used it and we almost broke it off the house with the tractor, couldnt see it or the sewer pipes because of all the darn ivy crap. Later on that day my dad called to tell me that the Mini Doberman Pinscher we have had in our family for over 15 years passed away so we all took that hard, my mom was out of town on work so it was difficult cause she is the strong one, my dad and Carlee and I just bawled.
We have had softball practice 2 times this week and Carlee is digging this pitching thing. She has practiced alot and Blue retrieves the ball which totally helps her not having to run after it.
Hoping to repaint chairs over the weekend but they require power washing and at this point they are warning our area of KS for severe weather all weekend. Saturday night is UFC Ill Will and I WILL be watching it, some really awesome fighters going for what they want its a big mix of some good ones so its a not miss.
I am hoping to get up to date on my Big Picture Class. I do a little each evening, there is audio and papers to fill out and layouts to do. I hope to post if I can get caught up.

Ok Seriously. Someone explain to me how I can make money blogging. You gotta go here and watch the morning show segment with Heather and hear about the software engineer who last year made 10% more than she ever had working. WTH? Seriously? I am sure if that was my only job was to blog I could be more consistent if a paycheck followed it.

ANYWHO! Last night was the 2nd game of a preseason softball tournament and Carlee pitched. No she has never pitched before and bless her heart a few times she almost did the baseball throw but she pitched a heckuva an inning and I couldnt have been more excited for her.

I am in the midst of a Big Picture Scrapbooking class called "The Art of Choosing Joy" a second in its series so its been my focus on my down time. What little of that there is lately. Will share as I get further in. it requires some serious self discipline which is difficult when I have my garden to tend to, chairs that need painted and a family to love and care for. Yep I am tired.

Ok if you wanna see the cruise pics they are down below, as more get shared with me I will share with you.

So I am sure you were wondering if seeing Kenny Chesney live was worth it friday night? HECK YA!! It was soo worth it, granted I would have like to get a picture with him or something but its all good, he puts on a heck of a show. And LeAnn Rimes WOW gorgeous girl and so down to earth and fun.

Saturday we did the parade for Kanza Days then at 1 Carlee went to the church and I went shopping at Flying Begonias and got the coolest plants and herbs EVAH!! That was a blast! Came home and planted then picked Carlee up came and planted more, took her to a birthday party and then Ryan and I did some more. Sunday my mother in law came over and we planted and designed and finshed the planters and I couldnt be happier. I will totally post pics the transformation from last years weed pit to now is soo amazing! I couldnt have done it without Ryan and my mother in law Carole they helped and worked so hard with me and I am thrilled!!

Sunday afternoon Carlee and I went out to a friends house in the country and she played got dirty we all took tractor rides and saw new baby tiny kittens and just visited. It was relaxing and nice and just overall a very accomplished fun and crazy weekend!
