8 Things That Happened Yesterday....

1. I set my alarm for 6:45, but somehow didn’t crawl out of bed until 8:25.
2. I tried to have a clean house before leaving for Spokane. Which meant finishing any and all laundry, dishes, vacuuming, and cleaning the bathroom. It IS cleaner...just not clean enough.
3. Rode around like a bat outta hell on my 4-wheeler, which hasn’t worked in 2 years. Yay Leif, and thanks for fixing it.
4. Stood around and waited for Leif to be ready. We were supposed to leave at 11, however we didn’t make it out of the driveway until after 1.
5. Went to the Library on the way out of town and picked up a book on CD for the mind numbing six plus hour drive ahead of us.
6. I drank a Sugar Free Rock Star in an innocent endeavor of staying perked up. 15 minutes later I felt paranoid and like my heart was going to explode. I didn’t fall asleep until 2 and have been up since 6.
7. Leif and I almost ran out of gas between the I-84 junction and Kennewick. Thank Goodness it’s mostly downhill, and for small little miracles.
8. After 12 years in the car we finally made in to Malo and Yvonnes. Mia woke up to have an evening snack and I got to hold her for the first time in ages!!

8 Things I Look Forward To....

2. Decorating my new house
3. Hugs and kisses from Leif…both of them
4. Lazy Saturday mornings where the 3 of us hang out in bed
5. More kidlet(s)
6. Listening to Leif sing and play guitar.
7. Leify telling me that he loves me.
8. Going to Cancun!

8 Things On My Wish List......

1. Leif being done with school
2. My very own house…soon!
3. Eating all the things I want without worrying about gaining weight
4. More time in the day
5. More patience
6. A pair of Keen Presidio shoes
7. More creativity
8. To not be so judgemental.

8 Words or Phrases I Use All The Time....

2. You know..?
3. Well, that’s gay. I have a reoccurring dream that Leify is going to be in the Principal’s office on his first day of school for using this phrase. I have tried to stop to no avail.
4. Hooker. That is a term of endearment, while some may call their husbands Honey…Leif is known as “Hooker”.
5. Crap
6. No way.
7. Shiz
8. Whaaattt?!?

House Update

Tomorrow the carpet is being laid, I can't believe it is almost done. After such a long and brutal wait I am still in denial that it is actually happening. The builders will be done next week. In order to get occupancy we have to build a deck, retaining wall, and pour some steps off the back slider door. If Leif didn't have a million other things on his "to do list" it wouldn't seem so daunting. But, since he is such a busy beaver he will be doing those things on the weekends only. So, if I am in the house by December 8th I'll be happy. Here is my kitchen, I need to get some hardware for the doors, other than that I am pretty happy with the way it turned out.

Total Boy

I'll let these pictures do the talking.

I wanna go Fast!

Ricky Bobby Anyone?? Leify has two qualities in common with ol' Ricky Bobby:

A. He doesn't quite know what to do with his hands while he is talking.
B. He wants to go fast.

If he sees a steering wheel he is full speed ahead to go and get in front of it. He loves loves loves to ride on the 4-wheeler, and the tractor, fork lift, golf cart, truck... The faster you go the louder he giggles. Here he is attempting to go fast.

Our little Lion

For Halloween Leif and I took Mr. Lion pants to our tri-ward trunk-n-treat. Leif took him around to all the trunks while I stayed at the truck and passed out Candy. If Leify is outside he is happy, so of course Trunk-n-Treat was a thumbs up!
