Just one wish....courtesy of the Mother Huddle...

If you had one wish, just one wish, what would it be?  Nothing about children, about YOU!! 

I would wish for peace in my family.  Peace between my husband and my parents.  I wish more than anything that they could get along, for MY sake.  Not for the kids, because they will NEVER agree about the kids, but for me.  If they could just pretend to like each other, so I wouldn’t have to always choose sides between my husband and my parents.  That really sucks.  Sometimes, I would just like to be able to call up my parents and say hey, can we go to lunch?  and take my husband with me, and all of us talk like the adults we ‘claim’ to be.  As it stands right now, my parents don’t like my husband, and he feels the same way.  I would love for all of us to just GET ALONG!!! 
Just like Destri, from the Mother Huddle, I too love fresh sheets!!  Mine don’t smell like fresh air though, they smell CLEAN.  It’s a WONDERFUL smell!!  If I could go to bed every night, and magically have clean sheets, I’d be in heaven!!

I know that’s two wishes…one that’s attainable, and one that’s really not.  You decide which is which!!  If you had one wish, what would it be?

This post wouldn't be possible without the great question from this post: http://www.themotherhuddle.com/the-i-and-me-in-us/

Question of the day.....

So, I was doing my normal blog reading, I read like a million blogs a day, and I found a new, fun blog!!  www.puglypixel.com, it's great!!  Today, there was a question of the day, and I really wanted to answer it!!  Maybe I  can start doing this semi-regularly!!  So, without further ado, the question of the day from puglypixel.com:

What would you do if money were not an issue?

If money were not an issue, I would get my back fixed, which would be AMAZING!!  I would adopt a baby, so my husband and I could have a child together.  I would get rid of my awful, awful car, and get a semi-new, 4x4 SUV, and I would get my husband a 4x4 Ford pickup.  If exes were also not an issue, I would buy the house in Colorado Springs, and move my family up there to enjoy the view of Pike’s Peak out of our kitchen window!!  I would quit my job and start homeschooling my kids, so they can stay innocent as long as possible!!  I would also open a teen ranch, for troubled kids, so that we could help runaways and bad kids, which has always been a dream of mine and my husband’s!  I would let my kids go on a shopping spree of course, and I wouldn’t tell them ONCE that it was too expensive.  My poor kids wouldn’t have to look at the price tag one time on this trip!!!  Lastly, I would take my whole family to Disney World,on the vacation of a lifetime!! 
What would YOU do if money were not an issue??

Crafty goodness!!

I've kind of been a crafting machine lately!! I got my skirt done, which I talked about a while ago, I am learning how crochet, which is a LOT of fun, and I have started pasting photos to tiles, making really pretty picture frames! They are really neat! I've only done one, but it looks GORGEOUS!!! I'll give you three guesses as to who's pic I put as the first pic!! Of course, my number one kiddo, Brinley! I can't wait to get like a million of them done, so I can give them out as gifts! I'm also going to start painting on ceramic tiles, and making coasters for people, probably for Christmas! I'm excited about all of the ideas I have for Christmas! I need to get on it!!  I really owe a LOT to Danny's aunt Betty, because she's the one who helped me get bit by the sewing bug!! She taught me how to use the machine!! I'm looking forward to the next few months!!  He he he!!


We are going on a mini vacation this weekend!! Can we afford it? Absolutely not!! Are we going anyway? You betcha!! We are driving to Pueblo, CO, to look at all the pretty scenery, then we are turning around and coming home!! Our family needs some 'us' time, so hopefully this will do us a lot of good!! Our cute little Bailey is going with us, that should be fun! She's been great so far!! Hopefully the pattern continues!  The kids are all getting along, and Danny and I aren't fighting either! So far, so good! Wish us luck that the good vibes continue!!
