Around Here

We have been having a nice week so far.  Monday was really hot.  After work I took the kids out to Park Lake.  We all got sun kissed, but it was great to get out of the house.  Tuesday it started to rain a little.  I had free tickets to Cineplex and decided to take the kids to see Brave.  It was a cute show but much different then I thought.  If I had know the whole story I would have waited and not wasted my tickets on it. The kids liked it also but said the same thing, that it was not what they were expecting.  Today Blake had a friend over.  I have been working 2 hours everyday, right in the middle of the day.  They have been doing a great job of taking care of themselves.  Making lunch and getting chores done.  Cora is great at this.  Blake and Leah still need some work.  It is getting better. The last two day I have cleaned my shower with baking soda, vinegar, water, and a toothbrush.  It looks amazing.  It took hours.  Years ago just around the time that Kristin married Taylor she gave me a booklet that she had researched about all the amazing things vinegar can do.  I have been trying them out lately.  Tomorrow we are going to go back to Park Lake if it is hot, which it is supposed to be.  Friday is groceries and Saturday Dave has his first triathlon this year. While he is doing that we are going to hang out with Natalie which is always fun.  And that should be a wrap.


  1. I just caught all up on your blog! I loved your cupcake, fun to see pics of dad and Nat, I was sad I wasn't there on the 1st also. I wore red and white that Sunday too. I hope Dave likes his new job, I love that he wanted everyone to know that he was unemployed and not looking for work. AWESOME!!!
    Can't wait to see you guys
