Camping Trip 08

Here is a slide show from our camping trip.
We had a blast and came home exhausted,
I cant wait to go back and explore some more.

Yard Days

This is what we do when yard work gets done, Gary works, I supervise, and Ben enjoys his day.

Making life easy

I bought the Swiffer Wet Jet today and I love it! I got it because our old mop has 'kicked the bucket' (I crack myself up). My sister in law told me about this a while back and I was hesitant to buy it cause I figured like everything else it would not live up to its claims.

Well I got it home, swept the floor, and started wet jetting! I love it! Its so easy and there is no bucket to lug around. My only complaint is that it left my hard wood floors streaky, but I think I can fix that by buying the wood floor solution they have. It doesn't replace, getting down on your knees and scrub kind of mopping but it works for day to day stuff.

I'm supposed to go back to work tomorrow, but because every one is confused about schedules, so I wont be going in until more day to relax...

Just kidding! I cant relax, I want to finish my paper I'll be doing that all day. I really wish I had chosen an easier topic. My topic is 'Effective Methods for Teaching Children with Autism'. It's really interesting but its taking a lot of research.

Gary gets home on Friday (hopefully). He'll have to go back out of town the following week, but I'm so excited because after the 26Th he'll be done over there and I'll have him back home!!

The saying that "absence makes the heart grow fonder" really is true. Being away from Gary so much has made this summer hard, but its also made us realize how much we enjoy each others company and no matter what arguments may happen were still best friends, and we know we are meant to be together.

Update: 8/31/08
I also bought a Roomba robotic vacuum....its AMAZING! Roomba coupled with my Swiffer wetjet, have made my floors so clean. Roomba is a must if you have a dog that sheds and a life besides cleaning.

Bunny Love

I just wanted to share a picture of Ben sleeping with his bunny. Isnt he adorable?

We have Eggs!

Our beloved chickens have started laying eggs. At least 4 of them have. Yay!!
These are the eggs I collected today, please excuse the dirt and chicken poo. I took the picture before I washed them off.

Aug 4th ~ Our Anniversary

The night of our anniversary I flew in from New Mexico at 5pm. On the seat of the truck I found this beautiful tennis bracelet waiting for me. I don't think Ive ever gotten anything this nice, except my engagement ring (of course).
Well I failed in getting the better gift. I got Gary a straw hat and a hat case...not much fun huh? But he says he liked it.

After the gift exchange we went to dinner at Olive Garden...yeah not exactly romantic, but it was good and close to home...I was exhausted from my trip so I couldn't wait to come home.
Overall it was a wonderful anniversary. I'm so glad I'm married to this man.

Bens days

Such a cute baby!


I figured it was time I start a family blog...not much going on. Since we dont have kids there wont be to much to say, but I'll try to keep it as interesting as possible.
