Four weeks is better than four months

So it's been four weeks and I've not blogged again. I know I must have a few things to list out from the last month so here they are in no particular order.

--This one is fresh in my mind cause she said it last night while we were finishing her project at 8:00. Talk about procrastination. Emily is the star student this week and had to make a poster about herself. It is supposed to include likes, dislikes, pictures of her and her family...stuff like that. So we were having a hard time coming up with things she doesn't like. She loves veggies, football, dirt and bugs. there's not a whole lot left for a first grader to dislike. So we were flipping through magazines and she says "can I cut out a bra?". She ain't no dummy.

--The boys start lacrosse practice this week. I'm excited to see what all the hype is about. I know nothing about the game other than it's rough and you get to hit people with sticks. Sounds like a good time will be had by all. Unless you are the guy that just got hit with a stick.

--Since it's been a week since i started this the boys both had their first practice. They have practice at the same time so rob took Austin and i took Taylor. Yay for us there are 9 boys from Taylor's football team on his lacrosse team. We were really hoping to get everyone on the same team but the lacrosse people were a little grumpy about making our own team. I guess nine is better than none.

--With both boys playing we are pretty much going to be busy six days a week. They each practice three times and have two games. unfortunately they aren't on the same days. I feel a lot of crock pot meals coming on.

--I got some new nail polish and actually painted my finger nails. I went with China Glaze Reggae to Riches. Fabulous. I had an OPI color picked out but chose this instead. I bought it for my toes because they are always painted and I am getting tired of the colors I have. I painted my pinkie to see if I liked it and lo and behold i loved it so all my fingers got a coat. It has been years since I painted my finger nails. Like, probably close to five or six or seven. Maybe longer. I hate painting my nails but this I can handle for a while.

--Rob bought Austin cleats the other day and he is in a 10 1/2. Rob only wears a 9 1/2 so he's in eighth grade and already passed his dad. I think next comes uncontrollable eating.

--We also just registered him for high school. High school?!

--I've become a spray painting fool. If it's not nailed down it's getting a coat.

--Rob mentioned yesterday that Easter is just around the corner which means it's time for us to host our annual Easter dinner. I'm not sure if I'm ready for that yet.

--I'm still working out five days a week. Tyler measured me last Friday and I'm still going strong. I lost a pound of body fat in 20 days. Not bad. My only issue is I keep losing body fat and gaining muscle so my weight is staying the same. For this girl that wanted to be 125 pounds it's driving me crazy.

--101 days til Argentina!!!
