Don’t worry, I didn’t drop off the face of the earth… just trying to get things figured out! I think that I spent 9 months worrying about how it was going to be to juggle everything. I am happy to report that it is every bit as difficult and overwhelming as I suspected! LOL! actually, I think that I am adjusting! Connor couldn’t be any more easy going and angelic… and Capri is not quite as violent with him as she was in the beginning! I think that protecting him from her was one of my biggest challenges. That, and the thought of needing to go to the grocery store. (frightening)… so I decided to go the on-line grocery shopping route! man, that was awesome. The kids were totally getting a kick out of me ‘grocery shopping’ on-line… and just like they do at the store, they sat and begged for me to order cookies and chips and candy etc. the best part, was that when the groceries arrived, the guy totally brought them right into my kitchen counter. TOTALLY worth that $10 delivery charge! I guess that I just have to be really creative . My sister, Katie has been in town this week with my niece Aspen who is just a few months older than Capri. The little girls were just too cute for words toddling around. Katie and I went and saw “Hairspray” at the late movie Monday night. I LOVED it! so cute. I have never seen the play, so I wasn’t totally sure what to expect…I highly recommend it! it was so fun to have my sister here so someone would go with me!
So our yard is DONE! it looks sooooo fabulous! I know that I mentioned that we were doing some work out there… and I am so LOVING IT! where we live, we don’t have access to city water, so we have a well. it’s not prolific enough that we can water grass, so after much deliberation, we decided to put in artificial grass. I know… sounds like a miniature golf course! But this stuff is fantastic! I looks GORGEOUS. And it will ALWAYS look gorgeous! No water, no mowing, no dead spots from the dog, no weeds… no prob! And we have been having so much fun playing on it. it’s been years since we could be out in the back kicking a soccer ball or throwing a Frisbee! Amazing what a bonding, family thing grass is! I have to show you a photo! between the new coat of paint, the stone veneer on the front and the grass, it looks like a new place!
OH… I almost forgot! The NEW August ‘Club Heidi” kit is UP and will be available for purchase on August 1st. Check out the fun ideas for sure!
