Housecleaning, Yay!!

Well, I've always been challenged by keeping my house clean... So I thought one day I'd look up motivation for cleaning on the internet. I found FlyLady. www.flylady.net

FlyLady is great. Since finding this site, and reading her tips, I've actually kept my house cleaner longer!! I suggest everyone who finds housework to be a challenge to go here and use her tips.

I'm a FlyBaby now... FLYing in KY!! That's me!! Ha Ha Ha...

It's all simple routines, and just 15 minutes at a time. Very handy now that I'm pregnant and seem to have NO ENERGY!! Yuggy... Sometimes....

Love being pregnant, though. Love it... This little girl kicks the crap out of me all the time though. I wonder if she even sleeps! I think she's going to be very energetic once she's born. Yay, just what I need. TWO kids to run after. Shouldn't have to worry about losing those extra pounds! I'll work them off just taking care of the kids!! LOL.

Speaking of housecleaning.... I've got some work to do this morning. I've just woken up, but at least I've already made my bed. Mainly as a deterrent from getting back in!! Ha ha. Now I need to get dressed, finish my cup of coffe, make some tea, maybe clean a little in my boy's room. That's my project for November!! Get that room clean and organized. He's got WAY too many toys. Poor thing! I don't think he even plays with them all, just likes to pull them out of the toy box and scatter them everywhere!! More cleaning for Mommy, YAY!! (Yes, that was a bit sarcastic!)

Then, it's over to Dad's house to clean there in prep for my Mom coming home from the boat. I'd like for her to be able to walk into a clean house. Makes things so much less stressful for Dad.

Well... Got lots to do, so I better get off here and get busy!!

Poker Night with the Boys

Well, my husband has gotten into the habit of playing poker several nights of the week with the guys who work for him. They sit around the kitchen table drinking, smoking, and throwing the cards. I don't mind letting him play, as long as he keeps an eye on how much he is losing.

Tonight... I got in on the game. I won $1.25 by the time it was over. Not bad... My husband broke even, with one guy owing him about $20. Another guy went home with his whole paycheck gone. Sucks for him, especially since he told his girlfriend that he had gotten paid that day, and was still working. So now he'll be going home with no paycheck, and the lie on his conscience about working when he was actually sitting playing poker with the guys.

I actually had fun. I was ready to quit once I'd lost my original $10 that I started with, but hubby kept loaning me money so I could keep playing. I ended up winning back all my money. Not too bad for a first-timer, huh? :-)

So now I'm sitting here on the computer, writing this blog, while my husband is snoring away on the couch. I'm snacking on some great little things. Saltine crackers spread with peanut butter, with a big marshmallow cut in half on top. Stick 'em in the toaster oven and let the marshmallows get browned and there's a handy snack. Love these little things.

Oh, had a Yard Sale this past weekend. Made about $70 on that. Not too bad, considering we didn't have very many customers, and all I was selling was junk I didn't want anymore. Of course, my eldest sister was there, and she bought about $30 worth herself of my stuff, but hey, money is money, right?

Going to do the yard sale thing again this Saturday, and then go to the Civil War days in Columbus Park. They always have this big civil war reenactment the second weekend of October down there. Pretty interesting, really. Maybe I'll get some pictures and post them.

Another Late Night

Well, I sprained my foot last Sunday morning. I got up to turn off the alarm clock, and stood wrong on my foot which was numb/asleep. Down I went. Being 5 1/2 months pregnant, this was cause for quite a bit of concern, but luckily, I landed on only my foot. Not so luckily for my foot...

Today, I was walking all over the place. It seemed that way, anyway. I'm tired, my foot/ankle/leg aches. It is still sore and has a rather remarkable bruise all down one side of it.

Me being doctor-shy, I haven't been to the hospital with it. I think it will be okay, though. Just a little sore, no real sharp pains or anything. Now, if I can only keep my 2 year old off my foot things will be great! :-)

Can't sleep, though. Seems like I have insomnia most nights now. Looking at baby names... My husband is fond of a name that I can't find a spelling for. Guess I need to keep looking... It's a pretty name, though. It's growing on me.

Guess I'll knock off for now and try to get some sleep.

Later all...

My first post...

So, I was sitting up late on the internet, reading through all my email, when I come across this one that referred me to a blog.
Okay, that was pretty interesting. Just some guy posting his thoughts, and other people were actually reading and responing to it. So I thought, why not? I know my sister has one of these out there somewhere...

Well, I'm pretty sure my posts are going to be wide and varied, because many people tell me that I'm a weird person/have a weird thought process.
Things probably to be posted:

Family Drama
Running my own business (my husband is self-employed in the construction business, and I help him run it)
Raising a toddler
Being pregnant again
Jokes I found particularly interesting/funny
What to do with my spare time?

Stuff like that and maybe more. So I don't know. Maybe someone will find this interesting, maybe not. Can't even say I'll post often...

More to come... (hopefully)
