~try to decide where to hang pictures, etc. hoping my SIL will drop by today, she's better at decorating than I am
~paint the scrap room I bought the paint yesterday
~e-mail some friends Done!

This full to do list is because I've got a very full first few days of October.

The 1st is Devo's 13th B-day. Devo is our Whippet and he may be getting old but he still looks like a young pup.

The 2nd is my BIL Todd's birthday.

The 3rd is my SIL Chrissy's birthday and my 15 year class reunion.

Audrey turns 6 months old on the 4th and I'm having a friend from high school over who won't be able to make the reunion on the 3rd. Oh, and I'm having my first Sunday night dinner on the 4th to celebrate my SIL and my birthdays. birthday is on the 5th. I'll be 33. :D And, I have a doctor's appointment that afternoon to get a mole and a weird growth looked at. Not the kind of thing I really want to do on my birthday but it's got to be done.

Since I've got all this going on and two events at my house, I'm really trying to get this place together. The two worst offenders in my house are the boxes of decor/piles of pictures in the living room and the humongous pile of craft/scrap filled boxes that were in my scrap room and now reside in a corner of the master bedroom.

Yesterday, I finished painting two of the walls in Mickey's room. There's only three that need painting due to his wall of closet. LOL! It was a lavender color and now it looks like this!

Actually, the green has another coat and looks much better. I also have some grey and some yellow paint because next week I'm going to paint a road on it! Mickey's going to love it and have a blast driving his cars on his wall. :D

Ahhhh, Back on Schedule

We're finally getting back to a decent sleeping schedule here at the new house. It's only taken four weeks! LOL!

8:00pm~the kids (love saying that!) go to bed
5:00am~Audrey wakes up to eat
5:20am~Audrey goes back to bed
6:30am~Mickey wakes up and Andrew gets him up
8:00am~Audrey wakes up and I get her up.

All in all, it means I've been getting a good amount of sleep for the mother of a five and a half month old, who is right now trying to pull herself up on the johnny-jump-up thingy.

Oh, lordy.

She's my little early bird!

She showed up early. April 4th instead of the 10th.

She rolled over early. At two months at the doctor's office in front of said doctor.

And now, at five and a half months, she's got two teeth, she can sit up tall without supporting herself on her hands and she's freakin' crawling! Not very fast yet and she gets a little too distracted to go far but she's got the crawling thing down.

Oh, dear.

First Tooth!

Little Miss Audrey Rose got her first tooth today! The night before last she was super fussy (for her) and woke up three times in the night. Today, I was letting her chew on my thumb and I felt it. We checked and low and behold, her bottom left tooth is officially poking through!

Yay, Audrey! :D

Sorry for the lack of pics lately. I'm still unpacking a few things....okay, a lot of things....and the camera gear is now next on the list. ;)

I'm back, with a winner!

Sorry it took me so long to do this but we've been without the internet until just yesterday! It's so good to be back.

I've missed everyone.

Have you missed me?

How's the weather?

Oh, you want me to tell you who the winner is?

Well, okay, if you really want to know...the winner is...Jingle!!!! Jennifer my dear, you are one of the luckiest people on the planet! LOL! I'm glad I can add to your winning streak. :D Please e-mail me your address to melegs (at) hotmail (dot) com and I'll send you your goodies.

Still getting settled in here. The kitchen's pretty much done and so is Audrey's room. The living room needs stuff on the walls as does the dining room, which also needs a few more baskets. Mickey's room has been a hot mess until today. It needs some painting as it is currently lavender. It's going to be pretty cool when it's painted. I'll share that later. Our bathrooms are good to go and our closet (the little one) is almost done and so is the computer station. It just needs some shelves and stuff on the walls. Our master is needing help and needing to get a bunch of junk out of it. Finally, the scrap room. Sigh, it hasn't been touched except to steal one of the shoe racks off the wall and put it in our little closet.

I'm hoping to get started on it next week.

Tomorrow the cable guy is coming and Andrew is thrilled. The man can't hack it without the tube. Also, our niece is going to be spending the night and Mickey is thrilled. He loves Karly!!! I'm thinking we'll paint little dude's room this weekend. There's a chair rail about 3/4ths of the way up the wall and above that it's the same creamy white as the ceiling and the rail. That will stay the same. Below the rail it's currently lavender but it's going to be blue...and green! A bright blue sky with rolling green hills and a grey road with yellow stripes will adorn his walls once we're through with it! And by we, I mean me. Andrew hates painting. :)

I really need to get our clothes organized and get the junk out of our bedroom so I can start in on the scrap room so I think that will be in the cards for tomorrow.

What's your plan for Friday?
