It's been a crazy few weeks here on the home front. We all came down with some kind of cold and mine is still lingering on. I just can't shake this sinus stuff. Problem is when I have all this pressure in my head I just can't make myself work out. It's been THREE weeks since I've been to the gym and the more the time passes the more I begin to stress and stress that I haven't been going.
I've GOT to get back into it next week.
Last week also why we were all sick, my oldest played Little Red Riding Hood in her school musical "Into The Woods." SUPER proud of that girl. She is such a sweetheart and has so much talent, and she is absolutely gorgeous. Her inside matches her outside though, she is wonderful through and through.
One of my dear friends asked me if I was wearing flannel pajamas. NOPE just my big long thick jacket. (though as sick as I was and as cold as it was in there that may have been a better solution. I think if you look close I have icicles hanging from my nose.)
Last week I also ordered my girls bunk bed. We are anxiously awaiting the arrival of it. If you missed my post I rationalized not building a bunk bed because we are just SO busy right now.
It's probably a good thing. Remember my entryway bench? Yup, still working on that. I have ONE more coat of paint then poly to put on it and I'm done. This project has been slow going for me but really I'm hoping to finish it this weekend.
Back onto bunk beds. Yesterday I went out to buy the girls comforters and everything is CRAZY expensive for the cute stuff. I found one at Kohls 65% off. It's SUPER cute but has not ONE bit of purple in it, but the colors seem to blend. My girls walls are a purple/lavender color. I went ahead and bought them but I'm freaking out that they won't look well in the room.
It seems like it may blend ok. I don't think Lucy is gonna let me take them back. She seems to REALLY love her new comforter.
Also I've been in the middle of a pretty great parenting bible study by Andy Stanley.
It never ceases to amaze me that God puts me exactly where he wants me. This is SO completely relevant to areas of our parenting life right now it is great. It's so simple, yet so wonderful. I'm learning SO much about the importance of relationships in my kids lives. It talks a LOT about how this generation tends to be experience rich but relationally poor, and how to fine tune/dial in and out certain relationships in the kids lives. I'm loving it.
The ONLY hiccups is the memory verse memorization that comes along with the bible study. Arrgh that has me sweating bullets come Monday morning group time ;)
As if we were not busy enough last week my husband had drill (for those of you who don't know he is in the National Guard) AND we had our cub scouts blue and gold banquet. Blue and Gold is like our BIG event of the year, and I was the chairman in charge of getting the banquet put together.
Thankfully it went off pretty well. I'm so proud of my son he earned his Webelos badge!

Sorry for the blurry photo, that's the best I got. (as you can see my husband was still in uniform...came straight from drill to the banquet).
Isn't he just the most handsome boy scout ever?
Ok, him and Bear Grylls. Behr Grylls may be the most handsome boy scout ever, but my son is right up there ;)

I kid, I kid. (My husband can't get jealous because I'm pretty certain he has a man crush on Bear Grylls).
Also we have been strongly thinking about cutting the cord on our cable. I'm still in the research phase to see if I can actually do this, but it's looking promising! The only hiccup right now is the stupid data caps that Cox has placed on their internet service. I could write a whole blog post rant on that but I'll spare you the agony of me on my soapbox.
So, needless to say we have been pretty busy. I don't ever see it slowing down anytime soon, but hopefully I'll start feeling better and get my train back on the track.
