I guess its been way too long since I've logged onto my blogger account... I actually forgot my username and password :P not a good thing cuz then you have to go thru and update everything and then they have to send you a linky thing to your email, then I realized the email they have on file was my OLD email, like from 4 yrs ago. So I had to redo that and get it all straightened out, and then I figured out it would have been just easier to have them send the info via text on my cell phone, doesn't that seem weird tho> that they can update info via text? hmmmm. maybe I am getting further behind on this technology mumbo jumbo? probably. do you think I care all that much? yeah. not really.
So its been almost 2 (?!?!?) months! yikes! lets see... the Pack and I have been busy on the house. New rafters are up. new roof is on. addition is framed, insulated, windows are in, doors are installed, ceilings are rocked... all the carpeting has been pulled up (what a mess!!! and it has sent my allergies into a tailspin. yuck :P) we found hardwood floors under some of the carpeting. who knew?? its in horrible shape. and we will still be installing new hardwood over the old stuff so it will all match.
Did you know that it is very very hard to keep a house clean when its a construction zone? yeah. not fun. at. all. dust everywhere. I have resigned myself to this fact. it has not been easy. just ask the Pack.
I do not have a schoolroom yet. it has been a very hard adjustment for me. I do not feel organized. I do not feel in control of my enviroment. or the situation. it is not good for me. just ask the Pack.
We now have 3 teenagers in the house!!! Yes. Mouth has finally entered the ranks of teenager! Even tho it seems like she has been a teenager for a few yrs now, she was not one. And she was asked "out" shortly after her bday... and Country Boy reminded Mouth that "tall lanky one" must first talk to her father b4 she can go "out" with the "tall lanky one". *side note ~ Country Boy knows this fun fact because he had to talk to HH (Handsome Hubby) b4 he asked Beans if she would be his girlfriend*.
Anywho ~ Mouth and the Tall lanky one decided they should wait till Mouth is 14 (yeah right) b4 the Tall Lanky One talks to HH about dating his daughter. So they will continue to be friends, as they have been for the last 7 yrs. Which is fine with me. The TLO (Tall Lanky One, keep up people) has been around since Mouth was 7, he is a friend to the whole Pack and actually him and Country Boy are best friends. So it makes sense.
Oh yes. You heard right. Beans has boyfriend. New territory for us. And yes HH and I like the boy. I have put him to work around here when he comes over and so far everything that I have thrown at him he has done with a smile :) (And I usually reserve the yucky work for him and the TLO ) HH had a serious talk with The Country Boy b4 he gave him the permission to ask Beans out. Talking to HH is a prerequisite for dating our girls. We figure any boy who has the guts to talk to HH, listen to his concerns, and answer his questions may get the chance to date one of our girls. Any boy who will willingly put himself out there with HH must be serious. I think most boys will be scared away just knowing that they have to go thru HH first. Weeds out the worthy ones ;) lol!
We took last weekend off. We loaded up and went to the big city. to the big mall. stayed in a hotel. the Pack went swimming. it went WAY to fast.
We will be working this weekend. Sofit. Facia. Siding. "it will be worth it when its done!!" I still have to remind myself of this on a daily basis. It works. Sometimes.
Life sometimes takes over and you find yourself holding on tight and going along for the ride. that seems like my life the last few months. things should even out around here soon. until then we are going to enjoy the ride :)
