New Post

I didn't know what to title this post since while I am posting I'm not sure exactly what I'm going to post about. There is so much going on in the world, so much on my mind, and I'm eating burnt French fries because I forgot I had them in the oven. So there's much I could post about but I'm told by my wonderful sister, Angela, that I need a new post. When I came to the site to do a post I looked at the last thing I posted and I agree it's been quite a long time since my last post.

Okay so where do I start. Micah's Grandpa and Grandma Manville came down at the end of last night and left yesterday morning. We had a great time with them. The girls were spoiled... and I was too I'll have to admit. Our tradition every time they come is to go to Red Lobster and we all know that if Micah or I try to pay Grandpa doesn't allow it... not at Red Lobster! Grandma was a huge help with cleaning, making dinners, keeping the kids out of my hair while doing homework or whatever else I had to do. Thanks Meems! Grandpa even helped out a ton, especially with Nattie. When he put her down for a nap she usually stayed there. Thanks Old Grandpa!

For Valentine's day we went up to one of our timeshares and met Micah's sister, Erin, there. I was kind of a stick in the mud as I was exhausted from all the work I have to do being a semi stay at home mom and having a job 2 days a week and having 2 college classes. I had a ton of homework too which is so much fun when you're trying to have fun at a timeshare. It was a lot of fun anyways even though I slept a lot of the time trying to catch up on sleep.

I have been sick, laringitis and such, for the last week! I have had little to no voice for 4 days and have been couging and had a runny nose and so stuffy headed, I have been quite cranky. My poor Micah! He has had to take care of me. Normally I just get on with life but as I said before I think that because I'm so busy I'm taking longer to get over this. I'm on the upside though so I should be over it soon.

IF YOU DON'T READ ANY OTHER OF THIS POST READ THIS. I just have to tell you all... yes you all not y'all... not yet at least, Samara today vacuumed the upstairs all by herself. We have a small vacuum that the girls like to play with. It really works but doesn't get the deep in dirt. I went upstairs with the big vacuum today and asked Samara if she wanted to try it. She said then if I practice enough when I get to be a mommy I will know what to do. So precious!!! I love my girls.

We're potty training. Not fully but trying to get the concept down. Nattie's been in panties all day today and has had three pee pee accidents and two poo poo accidents. YEAH. She's doing better than last time where she didn't go in the potty once! This time she's pottied in the toilet about 4 or 5 times. She's gotten either cookies or skittles each time so hopefully she doesn't get on too much of a sugar high in this process. Hey if it works and I don't have to do diapers for her anymore than it will be worth it to live with the sugar high for a while.

Well, I'm going to try and post more often and next time I'll try and post pictures. Please pray for our family as we have big decisions to make. Thanks.

Impossible is not a word, just an reason not to try.
