I love Spring!

Okay I know this is not the best picture, but it means so much to me!! lol
Today for the first time all year I hung clothes on the line! I am so excited for the weather to be warm enough to have my laundry dry in the sun! It saves electricity, and it is therapeutic to go outside and get my daily dose of vitamin D! I love it.
Along those same lines, I have noticed that sunrise is earlier. I love that too! My first daycare child comes at 6:30 a.m. and what a change to wake up with the sun, instead of before.
Can you tell that I LOVE Spring?!

premature spring cleaning

I have the bug! The Spring Fever Bug. I want spring to be here. I am looking forward for the morning I wake up and smell it in the air. But until that happens I will have to pretend it is here, so today I gutted my kitchen, I cleaned out all the cupboards, and under everything, even re waxed the floors. (my floors are really ugly though, i should not draw attention to them) It took me all day, but I am proud with the results. Okay it did make me notice that the rest of the house is in a "National State of Emergency"! LOL

Got to get back to work! Just remember to love life!

A wonderful Quote and a little explosion (very long sorry)

I hope you don't mind Michelle. I borrowed this from your blog!

"I don't want to drive up to the pearly gates in a shiny sports car, wearing beautifully, tailored clothes, my hair expertly coiffed, and with long, perfectly manicured fingernails. I want to drive up in a station wagon that has mud on the wheels from taking kids to scout camp. I want to be there with grass stains on my shoes from mowing Sister Schenk's lawn. I want to be there with a smudge of peanut butter on my shirt from making sandwiches for a sick neighbor's children. I want to be there with a little dirt under my fingernails from helping to weed someones garden. I want to be there with children's sticky kisses on my cheeks and tears of a friend on my shoulder. I want the Lord to know I was really here and that I really lived."-Marjorie Hinckley

Okay now story time! Today I had a couple sick children in my daycare, and had not been in the basement since earlier this morning. So when all had departed to their homes, I came down to check my email and pay some bills. I got to the bottom step and smelled something mysterious and not good. (I am surprised that doesn't happen more often) So I started my search... Cleaned up the toys and found nothing. I tried smelling all over the room but no source! So I decided it was time to clean the carpets and the couch. It took a long time finding a lot of surprises in the couch. Keira was excited, so many small toys she had thought were gone, were found! lol But still no source. Then I got the Carpet Shampooer all ready and began the 2 hour job. I filled and emptied the machine at least ten times. and was just beginning the hallway, which was my last area, when the shampooer exploded! I mean smoke, no flames, but it was a very loud "POP!" Oh and the smell! so I rushed it up the stairs and out the back door with wet feet and carried it to the road. My feet were frozen! Then I called my volunteer firefighter husband. "Get it out!" he said... DUH! lol "Air out the room" Again, DUH... lol Anyway so it is awaiting its Departure on the big green truck to Shampooer Heaven.

I really hope you enjoy this story, it is making me laugh as I type it! And who doesn't need a laugh?

Rock Band Addicts

So I want everyone to know that Brian is a Rock Band Addict!!! I think he needs an intervention! The idea behind me buying the game for Christmas was spending time together as a family playing this very fun, interactive game. But honestly it has turned into Brian hogging the guitar and not allowing anyone to be the guitar but him! It is so funny. Really how old are we?!

Oh speaking of age... lets embarrass him a little more, He is turning 30 in June!!!!

Okay just so you all know I do love him more then I ever thought possible and he is a wonderful father and husband, so kind and loving! Don't hate the addict, hate the addiction! hahahaha
