Baby fever...

Oh boy, have I got baby fever! I'm not really sure what started it, but I really want to have another baby! I've even gotten to the point of I don't care if this pregnancy isn't as easy as my first, I don't care if the delivery isn't as easy as my first. I jsut want another baby! My hubby is SO on the opposite end of those feelings. I really probably should just try to get over this as I don't think there is any way of changing his mind!

A great Mother's Day!

LOVE my charm bracelet that Tanner got me! I had been telling Chad for weeks that I wanted this bracelet & he came through! Tanner was really cute in the morning when we got up & said "You wanna see your charm bracelet Mama"!?

We had dinner with my Mom, caught a nap, chatted with a neighbor friend, had some Sheridan's (Mocha Almond concrete that was PHENOMENAL) and played on the computer for a bit! What a great day! Actually, the whole weekend was really good! Best in a long time I would say!

End of Teacher Appreciation Week

So today is the last day of Teacher Appreciation. For our classroom, I sent home cards & a few stickers for each of the kids to make cards for the three teacher's in their room. Asked them to bring them back & put in my box and I would make one large envelope to put them in for each teacher. I think they came out pretty cute!

A better day today...

So yesterday I just felt like a crazy Mom that can't get things straight anymore! I felt like the weight of the world was upon me and like I was just a big mess. Thank goodness today I woke up feeling good & one of the Mom's from a classmate of Tanner's said I'm Wonder Woman & one of his teacher's agreed. That sure made me feel good b/c yesterday & I wondered how so many women do do it all! I by no means think that I am a wonder woman though. At least today I feel like I've got my head wrapped around everything again. I think some of my nerves went away last night when I started getting things that would have to be done this morning done. I do still have a lot that I need to do tonight, but somehow I'm not freaking out about them today. Not sure why it's different, but I guess it's good! Also, when I decided I am taking a half day tomorrow (Friday) to give myself some breathing room.

I did decide that I am serious about losing weight as I can't even fit into some of my pants & shorts from lst year. This is it - I've gotta drop some pounds! I took Tanner on a power walk last night & it felt good to feel the burn, sweat & have flushed cheeks from so much exercise! Tonight Tanner has swim lessons so I'm not sure if I'll be able to get out to walk again b/c I also have to have him make his cards, I just realized I forgot to mail Grandma's Mother's Day Card! I can not believe that!! OK, so back to what I have to do tonight...I need to have Tanner make his cards for his teacher's, I need to make the three envelopes for them (putting all the classmates cards in them) and I also need to get my house ready for the Tastefully Simple open house I'm having on Saturday morning! Gotta make a liquor store stop, grocery run for that too! I did make a stop last night & now have something for Mother's Day for my Mom & Chad's Mom as well as a little something from him for them. It's not much, but this year it's going to be good enough! With the way the economy is, I just can't do like I usually would do. Also, I decided to make my mother's day cards b/c I could save so much money by going that route! I usually buy 14 cards between what Tanner & I each give out. Then chad and Tanner are spending money on me for cards too. SO, this year I will make mine, and have Tanner make his. Although I did find two cards (for the Grandma's) yesterday that I got for him to give them.

A great lotion!

WOW, this lotion actually stays on your hand for hours! You can put it on, type & work around the office, go to the bathroom & wash your hands again and they still feel good! I am so excited & am going to go buy this for myself! I've been using a co workers tube today! Be sure to use just a small amount - you do not need much!

What a great quote!

"Eventually I discovered for myself the utterly simple prescription for creativity: be intensely yourself. Don't try to be outstanding; don't try to be a success; don't try to do pictures for others to look at - just please yourself."- Ralph Steiner

I was reading on one of the blogs that I follow and she was talking about working through creative fear. This quote was in there & I really liked it!

Teacher Appreciation

So I was at it again with the overly ripe bananas & made lots of muffins & mini loaves. I think b/c I was down the street talking, I ended up burning several! I guess I was due as I haven't burned anything inquite awhile! Anyways, wrapped some up for the teachers, director & asst director. The flowers are from the parent's association & I'll take those in this morningto set out. Also, made a cute sign to hang on the door for T's classroom! As I was looking at these pictures I decided I should have made an apple for the tag on these flowers! Oh well, no time to make that up now!
