Herb Pots ~ Spring Blossoms ~ Birthdays ~ Soccer ~ Hair Cuts ~ the dog! ~ Busy Day!

Busy day today.

Little girl has some cute little pots to make…

first she (mom) needs the craft supplies  pulled together…

last minute…

I always run in the last minute!

It isn’t exactly my fault!

The last few weeks have been so busy!
Home school…
soccer, girl scouts, play dates,

crafts, holidays, birthday parties,

wearing out that  dog ~ the one I wanted!!!
life is so busy… yikes!
I barely have time to breathe!! =)
I like to live slowly…
we aren’t exactly living slowly right now…

Really?  I only have 2 kids and a dog…(a puppy… a tyrant!)
I promise if they admit me…
I will try to sneak my laptop in so I can still write!

So Right I was talking about … Herb Pots!

Today we are doing the last  “help a younger girl scout troop’ event …
so Abby can receive her Junior Aid Award..
then life will slow down a tiny bit…
at least there will be less girl scout stuff …
for now…

Until we start the Bronze award…..
Oh, yippie!

Seriously…

Girl Scouts has been great for her confidence levels …
which are not exactly high…
shy little monkey…

Sorry…
So today…

she will help some younger girls make these adorable “planting pots” …

once the pots are made…
they will drop rocks into the bottom…
a little potting soil…
and some herbs…
viola!
a pretty herb garden…

tomorrow the younger troop will deliver them to a senior home…
sweet!
I am so glad my little girl gets to learn to serve her community!
Girl Scouts has built confidence and community caring in her!
I am ok with that!

Even if it does infact make my life busier! =)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

What else is my day going to be filled with?

besides trying to home school my little man…

who is currently doing handwriting… (outloud)

can I vent…do you mind??  =)

I mean I created this mess I am in…

I wanted the puppy!!

But… THIS is driving me crazy…

he is cute…
but…
he makes my life 10 times busier!
We got him an outdoor “chain” …
so he will drive me less crazy!  right???
maybe it will keep him from chewing on things…
or chasing the cats so much..
but now he scratches at the door…
ALL day long…
in….
out…
in….
out…
please let me in…
please let me out…
I am seriously going insane here people!

How is a girl to home school with such a distraction!??

what would you do with this mut??

with no fence in the back yard?
YET!
I need a fence!!!
no money.
that is a problem!

dang!
Sigh!

I choose this life!

Maybe Next week I will vent about the chewing problem!!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Remember this guy…

I need to get his hair cut TODAY!!

in all this madness…

(we are working on the pants too!)

Lands end might be my only hope …

obi one …

You see …

every year I take pictures of my children in the spring…

with the blossoms…

and the sun is out…

today!!

I need (ok want) to take my kids here…

today….

while the sun is shining…

so I can have my blossom pictures…

you see …

tomorrow…

there is soccer …

and that dog to walk, run, wear out!!

and a birthday party

a gift to buy for said birthday party!

and the forecast calls for rain…..

tomorrow…

So the hair must be cut and pictures taken today…

somewhere in between crafty stuff, the dog, gift buying and school. never mind the car needs washing, the house cleaned, laundry, blah, blah… fun stuff planned … but busy… and I am whiny today!

Yeah… ok…. arlighty good then…

    Screw the fence…drink the latte! HA. Those are some cute little herb pots! And those blossoms in the park *sigh* I wish we had trees like that here!

    Anywho, my breadmaker is the Black & Decker All in One Horizontal Breadmaker (B2300). Again, screw the fence and get the breadmaker!!!

    Have a good weekend!

    You need a kennel… look on craigslist, you can get them for pretty cheap. And, you wouldn’t need a very big one. Hang in there! I adore herb pots. 🙂

    Okay, this was seriously hilarious! I know you are venting but you do it in such a humorous way! Hang in there and maybe you can start to breathe again soon. You did just make me tired though and I thought I had a busy life! Have a great weekend!!

    I am chuckling. It is like reading my own thoughts. Back when my kids were young. You put a lot of pressure on yourself, young lady! 🙂 Think of the lovely memories of this time if your picture had your sweet, sweet boy with holes in the knees and long hair. This is who he is today. Really. It is where you’re at. Don’t knock those memories. Or, opt for a haircut and take pics from the waist up. Life does not have to be perfect. Really. Take a breath.

    And, the $5 for the coffee drink? Just do it! It sounds like you need it!

    That is why we do not have a dog – way too much work. I am sure it is hours of fulfillment, fun, and love too, but seriously too much work for me.
