Thursday Thoughts

Well I am still around just been SO VERY VERY BUSY!! I knew that I needed to get here and blog but just could not make time for it!!

Tuesday I had our 7 and our 9 year old all day from 8:30 am till 7:30 pm!! Long day!! They are very good kids really but they are KIDS!! That should say enough right there!! We went to the pool in the afternoon and they played for about 2 hours there. They are little FISH!! I tell you!! They both are really great in the water. I took a book and tried to read but I kept having to watch them. You see our great community does not have life guards so I was a little would be too...YOUR RESPONSIBILITY!! They were very good but still again!! Also that day it got to 100 here and whew it was HOT!!

Garrett and Madison in mid air!!

After the pool we stopped and got a small milkshake at Sonic!! They have 99 cent shakes now!! I love the pineapple one!! YUMMY!! FINALLY we got back to our home and they played and I relaxed. Supper came and had to fix that!! Then after that a walk to the park!! Daddy got here around 7:30. I had made enough food for him so sent it back home so that he could have something to eat!! ....THEN I CRASHED!!

Wednesday I painted our dining room!! Hubby got home early to wait for his next appt. He grabbed up the roller and helped finish rolling. I like the painting part but do not like to roll. It is all done now and looks so clean. I need to get the pictures back up but I hate to pound holes in the wall this soon!! Stupid I know!! But painting is a lot of work. Now I have our bedroom left and then should be caught up for a bit!! We need a smaller house!!

The blue wall does not show very well..!!

Today was running around day!! I had to do errands. i went to Walmart and got the groceries for our house painting lunch this Sunday. Our small group guys are supposed to come and paint our house!! We are both so thrilled. Our association (Assassination--I call it) has sent us a 'nasty gram' saying that our house needs painted!! DUH!! We know that!! Where we live is just a stupid place when it comes to the Assassination group that THINK they run this place!! Everyone here hates them but there is no way to fight them. Our dues are even going up $10.00 more next month!! Stupid gang of people!! They make me so mad!!

We are getting our new garage door put in by the people from the air conditioning people plus they are going to fix our wood floor where the big dent is!! I am so happy!! Our home should start looking great soon!!

Thought for the day: "Coincidence is when God chooses to remain anonymous."

Know what you mean about driving that nail into a freshly painted wall. I thought we were the only ones who had to deal with an "assassination". I may have to borrow your word. Ours bends or breaks the rules for some, and comes down on others. If at all possible, I will move to an area without an association. Hubby and I have been cleaning the garage today and I'm pooped!!! Think we'll be getting carry out tonight.

Dearest Sandy,

Finally here to catch up on all your news! Isn't it amazing how "life" can suddenly take up all your time and leave you little time for blogging? lol I think a lot of us are struggling with visiting blogs now that summer is here:-) Sounds like you've really been busy but everything will look so nice once it's all done! Your grandkids look like they had fun in the swimming pool and I've no doubt they tired you out! lol xoxo

Melli said...

You sure HAVE been busy! Whew! Ya know... I didn't think your house NEEDED any work when I was there! You musta really TRASHED the joint in the last 8 months!!! LOL! Probly all those WILD parties you guys throw...

Well ... I'm glad your fixin' it up! When you're done, ya wanna come do mine? Paint alone won't DO it though!

Sandy B & Dick said...

I LOVE! the action shot of your grandkids at the pool! What a great catch, in midair like that.

How I love to paint rooms. I bet you're so pleased that it's done.

Have a glorious weekend.

Lazy Daisy said...

Wow, the wall looks beige to me. My Canadians made it it's laundry and putting away toys and baby items (sigh). Miss you girl friend!

Phyl said...

Isn't it wonderful when things get painted and fixed? I am with you on the "but they are kids" got tired just reading about all you did:).

Nancy said...

You will feel like you live in a new house after all of that! Those home owners associations can be a pain, where do they come up with all of those rules? The grandkids picture is just precious. A mid-air shot is hard to get. Thanks for sharing and have a great weekend! Good luck with the sprucing up!
