So much going on at home.
Preparing for two crops in February.
Concentrating on eating right.
Catching up on laundry.
Keeping the house tidy.
I need to make myself a schedule so I can stay on track with stuff. I've been utilizing the calendar feature in Outlook 2007 much more - Doug would be proud.
I was going to take a lazy day today, but nope... I've changed my mind.
After I get Cam down for a nap, I'm gonna shake this booty and do some exercising...
maybe work on the bills, and get my schedule in place.
FUN FUN FUN.
(read as boring.boring.boring.)
It's my lifeeeeeeeeee and I love it.
I have a strong urge to listen to Bon Jovi now. ;)

When the kids get up from a nap,I think they try to make it dirty as fast as they can.....like a contest or something. Who wins first place? Cameron or Samantha? Ahhhhhh it's a TIE. Their both so messy, messy! I had to vacuum twice today just because of the cracker crumbs. The kitchen looks pretty good... except for that trash.. just there. TAKE IT OUT honey!
The photo in this layout... I've loved it forever it seems.. in reality it's been 7 years since it was taken, and I love it more now! I've never been able to describe why I love it so, or why it invokes such strong feelings of love.. but I DO, and IT DOES!
Off to watch RV if the darn thing ever finishes burning.... :)

Not only do I want to be a loving nurturer for them, I want to be a caring, respectful, loving wife to Doug. He deserves the best, and I damn well am going to try to be the best mate I can. I may not keep the house spotless, or have dinner “on time”, but my heart will always be yours, Doug….
For me my word this year is PLAY! (Inspired by Ali E) I love to play with my scrapbooking, and I plan to do a lot more of it this year. I’ll be trying new mediums, and will incorporate more digital aspects to my work. I think this is a nice start. I love the goofiness and think it fits me perfectly. Here’s to a GREAT YEAR!

of course we didn't get the tree down.. hahaha
oh well. I'll start working on it today.
We did get Christmas decorations down from the yard on Saturday. It was beautiful here. I'm guessing the weather was at least 68 degrees with a little wind. Perfect for playing outside... so that's just what we did. I got over 400 photos from the day so I have plenty of little tidbits to scrap about.
Stacy came over on Sunday for a lil bit. She gave me a DT gift of Stayz on ink and cleaner. Can't believe she did that, gotta love her ;) Thanks girl!! oh yeah... and I love it!!
Oh, yup... Girl Scout Cookies... want some??
We started selling on Saturday.. think we already have 30 boxes sold... only 220 more to go for Katelyns goal. I'd like to see 500+ again. We did that her first year in girl scouts... the troop got tons of money that year. Two girls, Katelyn & another girl sold over 500.. the troop leaders was wowed. That year she got the 500+ cookie pin.. I want her to earn another one, because we lost the last one :( Makes me want to cry & throw up at the same time when I think about it. I've GOT to motivate Bug so she will sell more ;) Means more work for me too, but she will love having that pin on her vest!
I made it through the next round at Scrappin' With Grace with my last layout. It's getting down to the wire now and I'm nervous!! All the ladies in the competition are nice and have some great talent. I wish them all the best.
If you made it this far (maybe I should have put this at the top?) Mark you calendars! Scrappy Giraffe's first 'OFFICIAL' CYBER crop will be February 17th!! The DT is working on ideas now to make it funfunfun baby!

After the tree is down, and the garbage is picked up we can play all weekend! YAY! I have a 1 in 48 page due tomorrow @9am. and I still haven't printed my pictures yet!!! I swear, this week has been crazy!! Ever since Cameron took his first step, he's been into everything. It's going to be fun the next few days though because he took 5 steps in a row tonight... gosh, I love it!!
Got a sneak peek the other day of our 1st kit from SGK it's absolutely gorgeous and I can't wait to get my pretty little hands on it. It's going to be ROCKIN'!!
I can't get this fergy song out of my head... would help if I took it off my blog, but I just love it. Maybe if I listen to it a coupla more weeks I'll find something different.
Off to print pics... or am i?

Going to bed last night, I was rocking Cameron feeding him his bottle. She came in, gave me a kiss, gave one to brother on the top of his head and went to Daddy to pick her up. As he was closing the door she said, "night night", so I said night night. As it was almost closed she said, "I love you!" *sniffle* Ahhhh so sweet!!!! These are the moments you live for! I have always walked out of the childrens' rooms telling them night night, sweet dreams, I love you, as I shut their door. It's just an amazing feeling to have the words said back to you.

I need to clean this dump of a house up and shower.
And I still haven't gone out to buy groceries... may do that this afternoon after Cam's 2nd nap.
Drinking plenty of water, on my 2nd large cup of the day and I'm peeing like crazy!
Time for snacks...

My 1st mini goal in two months is around 35 pounds. I plan to blossom into a woman that I haven’t seen in years. I feel thin on the inside, but when I look in the mirror, I see a different person, one I have grown to accept over the years. I don’t want to accept her anymore. I want to be the woman I see in my mind. It’s going to be a tough, long year, but I will be someone different on the outside come year’s end! That’s my promise to myself…. A New Year = A New Me!!
I'll be showering and heading to Barnes & Noble this morning to figure out how I'm going to make this change. Doug & Katelyn decided they wanted to start eating healthier too, so no more soda... time to go to Sams and get some water ;)
Hope your New Year is full of promise, love, joy, ambition, and Good Health!
