Great friends!

Todd and Steph were here all day - helping us out once again! You guys rock!

We needed to move our 2 heavy dressers from our room. 1 went to Taylors room and the other to Ginger. We are getting 1/2 of our new bedroom furniture tomorrow and needed to clear out our room. The other half is still on layaway. I can't wait. I haven't had a matching bedroom set since I was a kid.

3 gigantic trash bags are full of Mr. H's clothes that were strewn all over the room. Funny, because he never wears most of those clothes. You all know he wears the same old stuff day in and day out.

The wonderful soon to be Mr. Stephi also helped out greatly in getting our pool back to great working condition so we could all swim tonight after some yummy grilled steaks by my sweetie!

Tomorrow I need to pay for Mr. H's truck registration. Go to Ry's new pre-school and turn in the rest of her paperwork and make my first payment for the school year. She is so excited to go to school. Momma's gonna cry like a baby though. Luckily, I'll have my Momma here to cry right along w/ me on that first day. Then I have to take Taylor to the doc for just a check up. Once Mr. H gets home, I get to finally go to chiropractor - I have missed the last 2 weeks, and I need it. Meet at Curves for our workout, all meet up here to go to the new Cabelas that just opened.

I still have to get the rest of the playroom, organized and pack up alot of toys that she doesn't really play with anymore. Maybe someday Mr. Stephi can come back and "ground that cable" or whatever he was talking about so his precious Ry can have cable in her playroom. ( She would love that Uncle Todd!)

Love you guys and thanks so much for all your help!

So my Mommy went home again. We had a great time while she was here. Not too many arguments. She took the kids computer home for her husband to fix as it is so slow and crappy.

She got us memberships to the Phoenix Zoo and the Arizona Science center. We went to the Science Center the Saturday before she left and had a great time. We did the planetarium and the Imax movie about the coral reef. There is a zoo update on Rysters blog already.

Going back to work really sucks after having 10 days off. Especially knowing I don't have much more time to take off for the rest of the year. I have Ry's first day of pre-school, Thanksgiving day, and then about 1 week and 1/2 at xmas. I can't really complain as I do get a ridiculous amount of vacation time every year. Plus it is my 10th year this year, so I got an extra week. Plus, I buy a week every year, so I got like 6 1/2 weeks vacation - I just can't believe it's mostly gone already. I suck!

I got a really cool DVD recorder to record all my pics and home movies to DVD. I had started wanting a new camcorder that records onto DVD's, then we found this that will allow me to record my movies already on VHS, like my wedding and Ry's birth onto DVD, so I went w/ that instead. Of course, it isn't as easy as they say and all I have figured out how to do is pics to DVD, but I am still working on it. My next purchase will be a new digital camera.

Going to Curves and really loving it. Had to go by myself last week as Diva wasn't feeling well, and I only got to go twice instead of the usual 3, because this other location that said they were open late enough for me to go SUCKS and they were rude and I won't go there EVER even if they were open 24/7.

So, Taylor went to Pump it Up yesterday for his other little sisters birthday party. Silly boy thought it would be wise to listen to the dumbass teenagers who worked there and told him it was ok to 'surf' down the big slides. Came home w/ his foot twice the size of normal and is currently at Urgent Care w/ Dad to make sure it isn't fractured.

That's really all for now, I think I will take Ry swimming and then take a nap!

***EDIT - Update*** The foot is fractured. Just a very small fracture, Urgent Care wrapped it and sent him home w/ crutches. Now we just have to hope his Mother really takes him this week to follow up w/ doc.

My birthday week

My Mommy got in Friday night and we got some burgers at Freddy's Steakburgers and came home. Unloaded all the dill pickle dip into the fridge. YUMMY!!

Saturday we got up and all went out to breakfast. We then went to Wal-Mart to look at birthday gifts for my cousins 2 boys. We couldn't find much so they are just getting cash instead. We came home, put Ry down for nap and then Mom and I went a did a little shopping. I got 2 cute sundresses, some shirts and some exercise pants and some tank tops. Oh and 3 pairs of shoes, all on sale! We then came home and went swimming. Ate dinner and after Grama gave Ry her bubble bath and bedtime story we watched "Freedomland". Then bedtime. David still had a movie he wanted to watch on the bigscreen so Mom was going to sleep w/ me until David came to bed, and of course he fell asleep on the couch so I had the sounds of snoring all night long.

Today, so far only me and Rylee are up. We have a birthday party to go to. A trip to Sams or Costco to get the goods for our BBQ tomorrow. We'll also be looking at a new camera for me.

Monday is the BBQ, but before that we have to go back to court because the bitch inspector says she cannot dismiss it even though the judge told us she could. Then we have to go to curves and hopefully get naps in before BBQ time.

Tuesday, nothing planned so far except for fireworks at night.
