I JOINED A GYM!!
I have been talking about this for, well, five years now!
It's time, ladies. I put on my swim suit on Friday and almost wanted to cry.
I am so excited.
Then I found a blogger who is starting Fat Flinging Fridays. I am all about getting some good lovin' sent my way now that I embark upon a life of fitness.
My goal: Workout five days a week. I really don't care about "pounds" lost. I just want my flab to begin to look fab!!

Here I am with Heather Sue, the chica who's hubby I mentioned above. Again, notice the mismatched clothing. That wasn't a priority back then. We were playing murder in the dark in an abandoned underground water tank. And yes, we were trespassing.
Hey, what do you expect when you live in a small town surrounded by turkeys???

So, instead, I'm going to complain about being a mom.
Because, it is hard.
And I don't like hard things.
This week, I have honestly been disliking this particular job I signed up for 5 years ago. Why? Who knows. Maybe it is the fact that Dan has been pretty absentee lately with the whole basement being finished thing. I spend all day and all night every day and every night by my little lonesome then head to the basement to work. Props to all you single moms out there!
Anyho, I just want to go skinny dipping in a lake by myself right now. It would be cold but also completely reminiscent of college days past. I used to be crazy like that. Now I am a whiny mom.
Fess up, ya'all! Have you ever had times like this? If you say no, you are either a killer mom (call me if you want two more [I'm keeping Champers cuz he is in the adorable, cute, and easy stage]) or you are a liar, liar pants on fire.

Grayson has been playing with these puppies for 2 1/2 hours now!
She has the best giveaways.
I took two pills on Tuesday night because I thought Tuesday was Wednesday and I panicked and took Wednesdays even though it was Tuesday and I did NOT want an exhibit A!!!! Boy. Yesterday was rough.
This has been another lesson from Amber. Brought to you by stupidity.

I can take a nap. That right there is enough to sell me!
I actually get ironing done twice a month. (That might not sound like much but it beats the NEVER when I was working!!)
I am my own boss. Unless you throw the kids in the picture. Then they are the boss.
I get to daydream just about all day long. And, move over Stephanie Meyer, I have some AWESOME stories to tell! Now, if only I could write.....

I am still in the process of collecting Spanish books to send to the Dominican Republic to help establish a library system there. Please remember to search your library! To learn more click here.
But, I also firmly believe that some of the greatest service we can give is the most simple! So, today my forward act is not grand or spectacular.
I have recently mentioned that I know some neat people. I have been very blessed to have you all in my life, thanks for being there! Sarah is one such person. We were next door neighbors at the townhomes. She was often a lifesaver. I could drop off my kids and run to the store or borrow some flour or go over to scream at the insanity of my life. We have both moved, but our friendship has stayed.
Well, she is INCREDIBLY talented. I love her work! And she is putting it to work!!!!! She makes masterpieces out of paper. Well, her hubby has talked her into selling her cards and I couldn't be happier. No more Hallmark for me, thank you very much! Well, most of us know how difficult it is to get the word out there that you are selling some amazing things, so here is my pay it forward! Stop by her site and if you are impressed, you can pay it forward by forwarding on the love!

I will say this...Dan and I just finished priming our basement!
We will probably buy paint tomorrow. Wish me luck, I have NO idea what I want.
Our landscaper finally called yesterday.
I just might have a finished house soon!!!!

1. Basa Body is helping women in Kenya use their knowledge to create jobs. Fantastic! I tire of Western orgs going in and mandating how other cultures should live. This is different. While in Kenya, the founders recognized skills that had been used for centuries and merely helped them develop into a company!
2. This is an organization that is small. This translates into little or no overhead cost. The profit is going to where it says!
3. If you are interested in learning more about this organization, click here: http://www.basabody.com/
4. This widget is brought to you by Mom It Forward, a service organization of moms!
If you have a few extra bucks laying around and feel like helping some sisters across the world out, donate by May 12. That's coming up soon!
