Our garage door broke a few weeks ago our garage door broke. We had to get one part fixed before we could install the opener. After buying one kind and then exchanging it I finally got one we all liked. I learned a lot about the different kinds and which ones work best for which homes.

My friend's computer hasn't been working well so I told her I would help her wipe it and reload everything. One thing when you do it is that it's an all day event. But I finally got everything wiped and reloaded for her.

I had a friend come over today. We had a great visit. The time just flew by so I had no time to get to grocery store. So I got Long John Silvers for dinner. It's been so long since we've had food from there. It was so good.

I found this cute scrap tote at Tuesday Morning today. It was half the price I would have paid anywhere else.

This is what happened after sitting in the sun for two hours for a baseball game. Wish my sunscreen had worked.

I had some friends over today and we started working on this puzzle of New York City. Now to finish it up.

I was able to join Gabriel on his field trip to the Arizona Desert Museum. We had a good time and learned a lot!

Gabriel did an awesome job at his game tonight! He made a triple. Here is making his way to third base.

I got all my school kits put together this past weekend. And now I've added all their 8x10 photos. The next step is pages for each grade. Hoping I can get this caught up soon!

I bought everything to make my own hanging plant baskets. We'll see if I have a green thumb. I would really love to see something pretty from my kitchen.

We were invited to Kim's son's birthday party. David turned 4!!! Can't believe how fast times flies. I remember when he was born.

Ok so I know I've already posted about pointe shoes. But I ordered another pair. These ones I had to send tracings of my feet in and then they size you. So the shoes are suppose to fit in the best way how your feet are shaped, etc. Plus, I love how they are pre-arched or broken in. That was the majority of the problem of my other shoes was that I hurt so much just trying to break them in. We'll see how magical these shoes are. Best part is I found my exact size on ebay for less than half the price.

I still don't understand how the girls can have so many dirty clothes in less than a week. And they truly are dirty.

It was back to the dentist again today. Lillian didn't like the shot in her back gums. Those the are hardest to get numb. But she did great and hopefully the last dentist visit for awhile.

Today I spent the day washing the covers from cushions on the couch. They were dirty and my attachment wasn't doing it anymore. So off they came and wow, they cleaned up really nice. And they didn't get damaged either.

Today was Easter and my friend invited us to spend Easter Sunday with her and her church. We had a great time and so glad we went. So I just had to take a photo of her. She holds such a special place in my heart as we are going on 7 years of friendship!!!

My husband surprised me with a birthday party for my 30th birthday!! I had a feeling something was up, but expected to have dinner with one of our friends. Instead I was escorted to our table to hear SURPRISE from my dearest and closest friends. I cannot believe he put it all together and that my friends were there to celebrate with me!!! So many of my photos didn't turn out well, darn bad lighting. Oh and my camera is with me 99% of the time which is the only reason why I had it with me. lol

Gabriel was being silly and put stickers all over his face.

Lillian's class had a pizza party today and afterwards played some games. Here she is playing Thumbs Up 7 Up.

It was a very windy day, again. This is my tree in our yard.

Tuesday, April 7, 2009


I spent the morning with friends. We chatted over coffee and played with pretty jewels. I also got my replacement necklace.

Lillian had a dentist appt this morning. Getting three kids ready and to the dentist by 7:30 is not how I like to spend my mornings. She had a small cavity filled.

Spring is coming!!!!

Baseball season has started so that means games on Saturday. Gabriel made some great hits. Hopefully my sports photos will get better as the season goes along.

If you look, you can see the nice bruise under my second toe. I was wearing flip flops and my husband stepped on the back of my shoe as I stepped forward. He got a good hold on it and I tripped and the whole flip flop came off. I'm shocked my flip flop didn't break. But it is now stretched out which I need to find a way to shrink it.

I had a bag of receipts to add up and batch. Our school collects Food City receipts and in turn we get points to purchase items for the school. My proof operator skills came in handy as I inputted all the amounts. But it is done and can get mailed off this weekend.

I spent a good deal of time on the phone with the hospital over a bill I shouldn't have received. I talked to many people and after explaining the situation many times, I finally got them to understand that I needed the claim to be reprocessed with our insurance company. I had to actually take my explanation of benefits booklet to the hospital so they could see in writing what I was talking about. The man I spoke to was very nice and put in a request to have my bill written off.
