Finally Friday

This week has gone by so slow.  I'm trying to get my groove back with getting Jordan ready for school in the morning, though this week was better then before.  I've been so tired since yesterday.  I had a major energy letdown that I haven't fully recovered from.  Not sure what's up, but I'm just trying to do what I can to get it back up.  

Not much on the agenda today, just doing laundry and cleaning some stuff around the house if I have the energy.  I think the kids got the crud that I had last weekend.  They have started coughing and such.  Hopefully they will get over it soon.

No sign of work for Loney yet.  Hopefully we'll hear soon, if not then I (or Loney) will have to get something quick if we can.  There's been a few jobs for Childress Electric that have come in, but not enough.  Things need to happen soon, or our lives are going to be changing dramatically.  Giving the problem to the Lord and pray we'll find work soon.

Weary Wednesday

I am so tired today.  I started coming down with the crud yesterday, and today it's getting to me. I snapped at Jordan this morning when he decided to hop into bed with me at 6 am.  I'm just not feelign good, and he doesn't just lay there, but tries to go under the covers by my feel.  I feel bad that I snapped at him, but he's gotta listen right?

I'm hoping to be able to take a nap today, when Melody goes down.  We'll see if Jordan will let me.

Here's another layout for the CT at Faith Sisters.

I used Journey's with Jamie Cutie Pie Denim kit.

Love Loney

So this week's challenge at Faith is to do a LOVE layout.  I know, it's a little different color than you would expect for a love layout, but I wanted it to be more masculine.  I'm not completely happy with how dark it is, but it's finished.  Love you Loney!!

Commercial Making Day

So today is Commercial making day.  Loney in entering the "Top This!" Heinz ketchup commercial contest for a chance for $57,000.  We're working on filming the commercial today along with Bradd's idea for one.  

Here's the last commerical Loney did:

After this in done it's off to making another movie for the Chiller TV contest.  That should be interesting.

Last night Melody fell over on a chair.  She's been climbing on the chairs in the kitchen for a little bit now, and last night was the time she went down.  Nothing is broken, just a little blood since she fell on her face.  Luckily she's ok.  It's a very scary thing though watching your kid fall and hurt themselves.  I'd been taking her off the the chair all night, she's just stubbern and kept getting right back up.  Kids!!!

Soo Cute

So I got the valentines printed up yesterday and worked on them last night.  Jordan had a nap, so he was up late with me.  I made up some envelopes because I printed the valentine's wallet size, so I had Jordan write his classmates on the envelopes.  He did an amazing job.  I need to let him write more...he's so awesome.  Just thought I'd share.

Headaches Galore

I have been plagued by headaches everyday for the past week or so.  It's driving me crazy.  Some days are worse then others, but just to have that gnawing at you all day is torture.  I'm hoping I can figure out what's causing them so I can get rid of them!!

Valentine's day is coming up, and I made some valentines of Jordan and Melody to send out to family.  Jordan's I'm going to print up so he can give them to his classmates.  Here they are:

Oh, My

My days have just become more interesting in my motherly duties.  Melody has begun climbing up on all of the chairs in the house.  The look on her face cracks me up when she accomplishes the feat. Boy am I in trouble now.  I just hope she doesn't take a tumble off on the tile in the dining room.  I try to watch her and get her down as soon as possible, but when I'm doing housework in the other room it's a little difficult.  She is going to be a handful for a LONG time.

Loney is still looking for work.  He applied for a Theater Tech at UNLV, but didn't get an interview.  Said he had to have 3 years exp working in the field which is a bunch of bologna because he knows more than a lot of people I'm sure.  Oh well, there's other jobs he's applying for, and some service work has come in which is good.  We just pray a job falls on the doorstep here soon.

Got a lot to do around the house that I'm slowly getting to.  I've been terrible with keeping the house picked up.  The kids have their toys everywhere, and it's a never ending battle when I do pick up, because they are right behind me with something else to put on the floor.  I hate keeping up...but I know it has to be done.  I might ask Susan to watch the kids so I can get some cleaning done without the kids around.

3rd CT Layout

Here's my next layout for the Faith Sisters Creative team.

Journaling reads:
It is such a joy to watch you two together. The look in Jordan’s eyes is just precious to a mother’s heart It’s crazy to think of my life without the two of you. Getting into mischieve or even just watching Melody laugh at her big brother. I treasure these times in my heart and hope to capture more of these moments for years to come. Love each other always, for your siblings keep you on your toes and remember to watch out for one another always. February 2007

Birthday Boy

Jordan had fun today for his birthday. We went to eat out at lunch, and the waitress' came and sang to him. His was grinning ear to ear. He was so happy about that! Of course the cake was delish too. It's so hard to believe he's 4 now. Time goes by so fast and I treasure my days with him. Gonna have a little party for him Saturday, so that should be fun. We're combining Loney and his birthdays...but it will mostly be for Jordan.

Melody is cutting a molar, and having a miserable time of it too. Her cough has come back slightly..not sure why. I hope she gets fully better soon. Poor sweetheart.

Well, it's late and I'm tired. Not sure what time Jordan will be up in the morning, so getting as much sleep as possible is a good thing.
