Hello out there!

I continue being busy as ever! Cannot resist a swap including my fav color though. I have been waiting to join the "Favorite Color Swap" since last year! YAY

The kids are busy and really have me on the go. My oldest, now 14 has a job through school with the television production program. She works for the little local station here in town and helps film and produce the games and events around town. Sometimes she forgets to check with my schedule or tell me what she has signed up for! So a lot of adjusting! lol
The rest of the kids are busy at school. The academic competitions have finished up for the two oldest and elementary is this Saturday, so hopefully my son will do well. He is excited about it.

We have a family member staying with us right now too. She is 25 (my cousin) and she is trying to get her life back on track. She has started college and gotten a parttime job so she is off to a good start. She can't drive though so guess who gets her where she needs to go. Yup! Mom's taxi! lol
Thats all I have today. Trying to get back into writing again, so little time though! lol

Hugs N Blessings!

Hello out there!

I have been a busy bee.My kiddos have started their competitions with Academic teams and it is running me ragged! I have one in three schools on the teams and they all are practicing during the week. My high schooler has practice every evening after school and the other two have practice twice a week.

They love it and they do well in their subject areas, so that is good. A bit of my time and they make me proud indeed!

I have also been busy with my swaps and exchanges. It is so much fun meeting new people from around the world.

I hope to write more often, I tend to forget about my poor blog! lol
The Merriest of Christmas to you all and I will return!
Hugs N Blessings!

I apologize for my lack of blogging! Sinced Feb. no doubt!!!!
I had quite a bit go on during the year. In March my hubby injured himself working on his dad's proerty and could not go to work for 12 weeks! He was home with me so priorities changed! lol
He is fine now and back to work. It was a long 12 weeks though! lol

I tried to change my blog a bit and lost all of my links. I have forgotten how to put them back!!!!!! Can anyone help me?!! lol

We have had a busy summer and it passed by so fast! Now the kids are back in school and looking forward to me spending all m time driving them to and from Academic Team practices. I will have two of them participating this year instead of two! All at different schools too! Yikes!!!!
My hubby thought he found a new home for us and we all got excited. Then we sat down and though some more. It is BEAUTIFUL and BIG, but it is not wute arranged how we'd like it if we had to choose.....wait a minute we CAN choose! lol It is our money!!!
So we are backing up and thinking of other options now to get exactly what we want, that "Dream house" that seemed so far away once!
He is thinking about rennovating this one. We will see!
Well, that is all for now, hopefully I will do better now that I can try to find a routine! lol
