in a nutshell

This is what my life's been like the past while:

laundry: mountains of it.  (and none of it put away).
thunderstorms.  sooo many of em. Trying to teach my kids about thunder and lightning.  The other day Angus and I stood and watched the storm with the door open.  he was so dear and fascinated.


making food. trying to think of new ways to tempt my children to eat vegetables.

workouts! There is a guy here who does free fitness camps, and he gave me a list of exercises to do each day.
Ben has been working soo much, what with his window washing business and his job at the mine, and I find myself feeling like Bilbo Baggins sometimes (like butter spread over too much bread).  But this next weekend I have something to look forward to, 'cause mudsy and pops and my sister labee are coming for stampede weekend!! LOVE STAMPEDE WEEKEND.

post vacay blues

Ben and I had been planning a trip to Edmonton/Lethbridge for a long time. Finally, two weeks and a bit ago, we went.  It was really fun. Two weeks of fun and exciting things, with nary a chore in sight.

Now...

well, now it's time to face up to them.  I have been home for 4 days now while Ben's been at work, and the chores have been nudging me irritatingly in the ribs.  I feel rebellious about it all.


But it's no use.  Somebody has to do it.  Owen's cache of clean underwear will be depleted by tomorrow.
I am not cut out for housecleaning.  I did NOT get my mom's gene.  When I am rich, I am getting a maid! yeah.

Also, I've got two commissions that need to be finished, like yesterday.  I quite like the one I'm working on right now. I'll hopefully finish it tonight (gulp) and then I'll take some pics.
