Busy Monday

Today I have been cleaning house and doing tons of laundry. Mr. C. had to go to a CPR and first aid class for part of the day in El~Reno Oklahoma. So this was a perfect day to get some odd and ends done on the house. I even cleaned out the refrigerator, which wasn't as bad as it could have been with Christmas leftovers and such.
Tonight I am heating up the rest of the smoked turkey and making potato salad, baked beans and deviled eggs. We should have Alisha and Brody and maybe Trevor. It will be nice to have a houseful of teenagers driving me crazy. LOL
Am glad Christmas is over, now it's time to put up the decorations. Aaron told me he might better give me his list early since he didn't get the 2 main gifts he wanted. I didn't tell him the nerf bars for his 4~wheeler is in my craft room. I am waiting on Blake to give them to him. Although I sure had to hear how upset Aaron was with me for not getting them. I can't wait till Wed when Blake gets home from work!!
My #1 goal this year is to hire a housekeeper! I have done without one since April and I am sure missing her. Finding the right person is a pain. Which is why I gave up and have been doing it myself.
Well I guess I will go. Till Next Time:) Karen

7 days till Christmas!!

Where does the time go? I didn't realize that I haven't posted a blog on here since Dec. 6th. Why? I have no ideal... I have been writing in my journal everyday but wasn't getting on the computer at all. I only logged into swap~bot thru my phone. Maybe just maybe I was too busy getting ready for Christmas, but I doubt that is the real reason.

Last night Aaron was sick when I picked him up from his papa Kendall's. I get him home and cook a meal for him and he perked right up. He just needed some tlc from his moma. Thank goodness he is sooo much better this morning!

I so need to finish up Christmas shopping. I am down to stocking stuffers for the boys and it has been a pain to find them cute usable items for the stockings. I also need to get Aaron's Nerf bars for his 4wheeler ordered so they can get here. That is his main gift! Trevor's computer is paid for and I am waiting on delivery. Blake wants Cinch Jeans and a cinch jacket. Which means I need to get it ordered asap. Got to love the Internet!! Nothing like waiting to the last minute to shop for Christmas.

Today I want to go shopping over at Lawton, Ok. Am going to take Aaron with me so we can get some one on one qaulity time. Maybe he can help me pick out some gifts for his brothers...or without him knowing it gifts for him....He doesn't know all my tricks yet:)

I need to get some gifts wrapped today. Thank goodness I have most of them already wrapped or I would be way behind.

Trevor went and stayed at Coby's last night. He was so ready to spend some time with his favorite boy cousin. Usually Aaron stays with Coby and I won't let both boys stay at once. Don't want their Aunt Laura going crazy with a houseful of boys.

Well it is time for me to get busy!!

Monday blues

I so did not want to go to work today, the temptation to stay home was very large! I finally got around and got to work about 5 minutes late. I hate being late but that seems to be my normal routine lately. At least I do call when I know I am running late.

I got off work at 3pm and went over to Blakes to visit with him for a little bit. Then headed home where I washed dishes and a couple of loads of laundry. My normal daily chores. Brody left the house as I walked in.

Now I am waiting on my brother Stacy to show up. I am going to ride to Marlow with him to our other brother's house. Thomas & Dana have a bed Stacy is going to take home.

Have you seen downsized on tv? I have been watching this and I really like it so far. This is one show I dvr and watch when I have time.

I am cold and can't seem to get warm. I do not like cold weather at all.

Time for me to close here...I need to work on my journal for November tonight at some point.

You have to love Sunday's!!

It is a quiet morning so far, the only sounds I hear is the washer and dryer going. Need to get caught up on laundry since I work all week. I may do some housework after I work on the journal for November that is due out tomorrow. I only have a few pages to finish up with but want to add other items to make it more interesting.

Yesterday Trevor had his wrestling tournament at Edmond Ok. He did okay but not wonderful. I tell him as he gets more experience he will get better.

I also did some Christmas shopping! In fact I do believe that I could be done except for getting the boys ordered and a few small gifts. I need to pull all the sacks and such out of the car and start wrapping them.

Our Bailey Church secret sis party is this coming Saturday at 2pm. I wasn't ready for it at all. I found some really great gifts for my secret sis. I know she is going to like them also!

As I was shopping a thought came to me that I should be buying some items and listing them on EBay. In fact come January I am going to list about 25 items or so and see how it goes for me. I know for a fact I can just about double my money on the items I would list. I am very excited about this new adventure I am going to fulfill.

Have a great Sunday!! Remember live life to the fullest....

Friday is here!!

I came to work at the flower shop today. We were slow at first then we got busy and now we are back to being slow. I actually worked on three swaps while at work:) I am doing a private journal swap she before she sit it up she asked me if I had time to devote to the journal. I was like Oh Yes I have plenty of time. I find that when I do private journals I tend to make the journal alot better. Don't ask me why..it just seems like it is more personal.

Not sure what I am doing tonight. I may go home and just watch Brody (bonus son) lay on the couch and watch his TV programs. I feel like he needs his own TV in his room or we need a TV in our room. Especially the week Luther is gone. I do not like the same programs as Brody.

Trevor has a wrestling match at Edmund Oklahoma tomorrow. Not sure I am going or not. If I am bored I will take off for Edmund. It is almost a two hour trip. It sure would make my little guy VERY happy!! Tevor loves sports and is really good at whatever he does. I really need to be his biggest supporter when he does them.

Well guess I am going to make this short and sweet...
