In an effort to procrastinate on the things that really need to get done...

I will blog about nothing!

We have been c-r-a-z-y busy lately and I love it! Most of the time. Here are the highlights:
  • I am room mom in both boys classrooms and am busy planning their parties. Really this room mom gig is way more work than I thought it would be. A lot more work. But seeing the boys' faces when I walk in the classroom makes it all worth it. They love me being up there and I'm thankful that they are still proud of me. Especially since I know there will be a time soon when they walk the other way once they see me. (sniff, sniff) Hopefully that's a long time in coming.
  • I had dinner with some girlfriends on Sunday night, lunch with some friends today, brunch at a fancy place planned for Friday and another possible girls night out in the works for Friday night. All with different groups of friends. Gosh, I'm blessed with friendships!!!
  • Speaking of blessings, we have found a new sitter that we are in love with. She is helping me out on Tuesday mornings by watching the Diva's so that I can have some time to myself. I may have her come on Tuesdays and Thursdays instead of doing the whole MDO thing starting next January. I'm really digging the idea!
  • We are actually contemplating something that I never thought we would do anytime soon. We may go to Disney in a couple of months!!!!! We have always talked about taking the kids when the girls are much older, but have a deal that may be too good to pass up - My sister is going to do an internship there and can get us into the parks for free. I have a free plane ticket that needs to be used soon, Joseph and the kids have a week off at the same time, oh and did I mention that my sister can get us in for free? We'd likely pawn the twins off on family and just take the boys for a whirl-wind-Disney-trip!! So, yeah, we are definitely thinking about this one seriously...
  • I joined another gym. In addition to the gym that I'm already obsessed with. I'm doing this thing called Crossfit and it is I-N-T-E-N-S-E! My workout on Saturday was crazy, but I love, love, love it. I signed up for this month and am not sure how long I will continue after that. They don't have childcare and that is a HUGE problem for me. But who knows, I find a way to make things happen when I really want it! And I really want this...
  • Another thing I really want is to get certified to teach Yoga and I am well on my way... The military is giving spouses money towards a 'portable career' and my thoughts were, "Gee, if they are giving away money I should take it!" So I started thinking about what I wanted to do and decided -DUH, where do I spend most of my time? THE GYM! And I love yoga, so I will work on my yoga certification and also getting group fitness certified too. Free money=Exciting stuff!
  • Speaking of working out - did y'all see the Biggest Loser finale? Gosh, mercy, do you just love that Abby girl. SO wanted her to win. Her story just broke my heart, but her strength was amazing. Love her!
  • On another note, I have been cooking a lot lately. Very new development in the Mad House. New recipes, lots of soups and freezer cooking again. Good stuff!
  • For the first time in 8 years I have Joseph's big Christmas present bought before any other gifts and he has no idea what it is! He's gonna love it!! And I love that he's clueless.
  • In case you are wondering what I'm dealing with - I have a 7 year old who wants an IPOD, laptop, facebook account, cell phone, DSi and a digital SLR. That's it. Meanwhile my 5 year old wants this bow and arrow set from Walmart ($6), 2 Bakugans ($10) and a Lego watch ($12). If I've said it once, I've said it a million times - My boys could NOT be more different!

Okay, I really need to go get something done. Something that is actually on my "to do" list. Blogging is definitely NOT on that list!

When you blog about nothing you sure have a lot to say! :)

I LOVE Caleb's list. We have a list like that from our 11-year old.

I've been cooking a lot too. What's up with that?

Ooh, ooh. I perked up when I read about a possible Disney trip with the boys. We paid almost $800 for our tickets to the parks for 3 of us so YES, DO THAT. DO THAT NOW. Have fun!

The Yoga certification sounds exciting!
