The Morning After ....

Cameron and Kennedy

Chad felt he needed to shave Cameron's head due to his date with the clippers ..... I hope it grows back in time for our Christmas pictures.

The weapon

The victim

We put the 'red' in redneck

So I'm working from home today and I'm about to go nuts. I can't do it. I will never ever never ever never be a stay at home mom. I have almost 'quit' being a wife and mom twice today. I was on the phone with a client this morning and locked myself in to my office. I had to tell my client they were doing construction next door when she asked 'What is that banging??" ... it was Cameron banging a can of Coke against the door trying to get in. THEN it got all too quiet. On the phone again with a different client and I hear "Bzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz" ... as I round the bathroom door, there is Cameron, with said clippers in hand, trying to 'be like Daddy' as he kept saying. GREAT! He looks like he is recovering from brain surgery and yes, the marks you see in his hair are complete bald spots. There is a big one to the back of his head. The last picture is just for laughs. Don't you love my new floors?? I'm SURE that is what you are looking at! Cameron has on Kennedy's shoes and her pink socks and no shorts ...... I love my life, I love my life, I love my life.

Conversations with Kennedy

Kennedy: Mommy, Mrs. Debbie told me she is going to have a baby girl, NOT a baby boy, but a baby girl.

Mommy: That is so exciting Kennedy!

Kennedy (interrupting): yes, Mommy. Now she is going to have 2 girls and one boy.

Mommy: No Kennedy, Mrs. Debbie has TWO boys already and now she will have two girls ~ how many kids is that, Kennedy?

Kennedy: That's 1 (holding up fingers as she counts), 2, 3, maaaaaan Mommy, how are they going to fit FOUR kids in a car?

Mommy: Kennedy, do you want another brother or sister?

Kennedy: Naaaaaahhhh, we don't have room in the car.

Office Makeover

Custom curtains ~ off EBAY!
more custom curtains ~ Kim Wheeler may not like EBAY ~ but I DO!

I will just post these pictures and don't have a before because of a faulty camera ~ however, this is the BEGINNING of my office transformation. I am so excited. For those of you that knew us "BB" or BEFORE BLOG ~ we added a wall in our house, some french doors and made our living into a more usable office/sitting area. I bought some rockin' furniture from Direct Buy (saved $800!!) and had the floors redone in a beautiful 5" dark maple plank. I love it. I wanted to continue on with my French Country decor, so I found these curtains on ebay. I simply hung them up b/c I needed to get the wrinkles out and I WILL steam them. I need to add the sheer in the middle of the big one ~ but that can wait for now. The rods came from JC Penney. I didn't want anything too overpowering. I have a $65 chandelier coming from ebay ..... stay tuned.

Want to come visit? 45 min from our doorstep
Beautiful beach in Longboat Key
Cameron chasing birds
Cameron 'wrecking' his sister's sand castle

We went to a Board Retreat this past weekend in Longboat Key, Fl. This really is the most beautiful beach I've been to so far. It's only about 45 minutes from our house and there was NO ONE there except us (oh, and the big lady in the picture with Cameron chasing birds, but she didn't bother us). We had a great time and Chad and I vowed that we needed to go back to the beach more often!!

I am NOT a loser .... just busy.

SO, I've been getting "UPDATE YOUR BLOG" emails so I thought I would post SOMETHING ..... my job has been nutso lately and I've decided to tackle the last few remaining projects at the house, so I have not had a whole lot of time to update. Also, my camera has been on the blink and I couldn't find the charger for my 'expensive' one ..... I have since found it and will post some pics from our weekend at the beach ... yes, I said "WEEKEND AT THE BEACH" and it's September ... don't you want to come visit???
