Why does a picture like this appeal to me when I am an optimistic person? Well, for the most part I am optimistic. I absolutely love to take photos of old broken down things & little pieces of things. This house is on our way into Garner and the broken toy has been out there for a long while now. It has been begging me to take a photo for a long time now. The other day I almost passed it by because there were cold groceries in the car. But I made myself take the time to do it even getting my pants all muddy practically laying on the ground to get this shot. Guess what? The very next time I drove by the toy was gone! YAY for making myself stop!
Here are some highlights from the last few weeks.
Madison drinks out of a sippy cup very well. There is definitely something to be said for waiting until a child is really ready to teach them something. Hopefully I have that patience with changing diapers and don’t push them to be potty trained to early.
Blake is soooooo close to walking.
We found some great deals at some local consignment sales and our favorite consignment – Buttons & Bows.
I went to a vendor fair at he shopping center Buttons & Bows is located.
Christine the owner
The cutest tie shirts
I don’t know but they are so cute
Love love this lamp shade
Guy and I both love the pink dress (the second item in)
Lily is mama’s helper in the store most days.
Guy finally filed our taxes – one of his off duty gigs STILL hasn’t gotten us the 1099 we need.
We’ve had a terrible week or so of sleeping. Maddy got a fever one night and couldn’t sleep. Blake has had some issues. Blake got the stomach flu a few days. Madison followed with the stomach flu too.
I organized all of our filing for the first time in 5 years. It was well past due.
I organized the moving of all the Spring/Summer clothes into their room, packed away most of the winter clothes (such as the ones fitting like plastic wrap), and put the Fall/Winter clothes coming up into the spare room closet (this helps me see what is left to be purchased).
One tip I learned a long time ago is to put a sleeve label onto the storage containers so a paper can be inserted then changed depending on the contents. It works great. I used the plastic name holders here (you have to use big time strong glue on the slippery smooth plastic).
There is much more, but I’m impressed if you actually made it to the end of this post!!! Thanks and I love ya!!
