Look what was in our yard tonight when we got home from T-ball practice (This could explain where Dr. Holstein disappeared to a few months ago)

FNL News Update (I wonder if eventually I'll have a news update for every night of the week?):

We've just gone through one whole work week of sunny days!!!!!
(guess that means the Cullen's can't move here, bummer?)

Our house is now insulated and weatherized thanks to our lovely state! (who says you can't make your tax dollars work for you?)

I still feel like I'm WAY too young to drive a mini-van.
("you're so vain...")

We only have 3 weeks left of school!!!!
(can I hear a whoohoo?!)

Turns out organizing a church softball league is no small task.
(I still have no idea how it ended up on MY plate. And YES! I am a little bitter about it)

I start reading the Dune series and Marc says "hey, you're like one of those geeky girlfriends that goes to comic-cons and likes sci-fi."
(Translation: "Honey I've never found you more attractive")

And last but not least:

Marc is giving the faux hawk and stumble look a try.
(I'm not gonna lie- it's kinda hot!)

GB House Renovations (a.k.a. Why I've been AWOL)

Marc took a week of vacation last week, and finally solve the hot water pressure mystery we've had for about a year now. So $178 later we are finally able to really enjoy the cool shower head i got for my birthday last year! AND I can now rinse dishes better so they don't taste like dish soap and rinse the shampoo out of my children's hair! Sadly it didn't fix the steps.

Over the winter we applied for a 'Weatherization Grant" from our county to help cut our heating costs next winter. So this week we've had some contractors here putting in new doors and insulating our house! The doors look/work a lot better! And I'm anxious to see our fuel bill relect it.

And schedule is out of control. I have WAY too much on my plate right now. Here's a run down of my next 6 weeks or so.

Sunday- Church x2
Monday- Schooling, regular monday stuff, softball practice
Tuesday- Art Class, regular tuesday stuff, T-ball game
Wednesday- Schooling, regular wednesday stuff, T-ball practice, church
Thursday- Schooling, regular thursday stuff, T-ball game
Friday- Schooling, work at my Mom's daycare
Saturday- depends on the week-This week: softball practice, decorate for a banquet, and getting groceries at some point (not sure when yet)

So yeah...I can't wait for more of my family members to join sports and have to throw that into the mix *sarcasm*.

Whew!!! Here we go...
