MOVING SUCKS!!!

OK, OK, OK..... This is my rant and normally do not have this outlook. 

I love to move.
 Finding out where we are going. Things we can do there. 
All the new people we will meet. 

I hate the part of figuring out what we are going to do about out house. 
Rent it, sell it?
So many decisions. 

Live on post, or off post. 

So we are on the we need to trim the fat. 
Aka: clean out the garage and get rid of the junk we traveled here with. 

I'm finding it really hard. 
I have a tub of clothes from our first son that I am having a hard time getting rid of.
Also a tub of his toys. I feel guilty for keeping his and not the other kids. 
So many mixed emotions on this move. 

So I am in the moving sucks part of the move at the moment.

Spring Break Extended!!!

So we were suppose to be head back today but the one thing having the hubs take leave for a week and a half is being able to change things up, when you need to.

We have been super busy....busy probably isn't even the word for it. We will be recuperating for days once we get back. Thursday we walked the Strip. I will get in more details and pictures. Friday we were back at the strip and did Vegas, The Show! (It was awesome!!) Saturday we did Hoover Dam in the morning. Then my sister in law's son watch our kiddos, so we could take in Freemont St and surprise my hubby with our long time friend coming up from Phoenix. Sunday we swam and napped at the hotel ended it with pizza as a family. Pretty funny story on that one and will definitely post it in a later post.  Monday we checked out of the hotel, got half our party to the airport and on their way home. The rest that stayed we bought 3 attractions for $57 at the MGM. It is the best deal you can make to do certain attractions. Will definitely post more about that. We did the Shark Reef at Mandalay Bay. Tuesday the Bodies exhibit at the Luxor and today we did the Adventure Dome at Circus Circus. 

Tomorrow we are headed to the Grand Canyon and then down to Phoenix to stay with our buddy. Then the hubs has to be back to base on friday to link up with a soldier to give them a key to a chapel. 

Will definitely post more later lovelies! Hope you are having a wonderful spring break!!

Spring Break!!!

SPRING BREAK!!!!!!

Could not have come fast enough! 

Mainly, I had volunteered all week at my daughter's school's book fair. 
Book fairs are brutal. Here in Texas, the charge tax. Surprise, surprise, not really but its so hard to remind little Kindergarteners that you need 1.07 if you want to get that .99 eraser. Trust me for your sanity you just start telling them you need, $0.54, $1.07, $2.15, $3.24, you get where I'm headed with this. 

My favorite is what can I get for.... and then they do not like the answer and will ask 4 or 5 times. Another favorite is the Mom comes in with their child's receipt and states, "My son bought two books but only came home with one!" So then, I had to ask was one of the books Minecraft? That's a pre-order as scholastic didn't send any of these out and no I do not know when they will be here. 

 I do have to say, I love volunteering at her library. I'm usually doing something different every day or every other day. Sometimes is shelving books, checking them in or out to students, or helping the Liberian with GT (Gifted and Talented). She has to test students twice a year to see if they qualify. You or your child's teacher can nominate your student. 

We are going to be traveling this Spring Break to Las Vegas!!! My sister-in-law moved there last summer and I have been begging my husband to go for years!!! Now, we can hit two birds with one trip!! Ha! 

Can't wait to update you with photos and all the fun things we will have done. Hope you are enjoying your spring break, that is if you are on spring break. Or thawing out as its 12 days until the first day of Spring. 

Where's you favorite place to volunteer? Where's your favorite place to go/thing to do on Spring Break?

Frogging...

 You would think I'd learn to stop stitching late into the night. Thursday night, working on the B for Abbie's name project. Thought I was doing pretty well. I was trying to get all the leaves to the flowers done so I could knock out all the flowers and then just fill in the B and what not. 

So I started friday with frogging... aka ripping out, aka rip it, rip it, rip it. Like it!!!


So with fresh eyes, I looked at it again and figured out where I went wrong and only had to rip 10 stitches instead of a whole bunch of them. 

I didn't get much work done yesterday as I committed to help setting up the Book Fair at my daughter's school. That was an experience and really can't wait for the fair to be over so we can get to spring break!!!!

From the school yesterday we went shoe shopping... you would think that I was super excited about that one. Yeah, not so much, but found a pair of black pumps to go with a dress for a cocktail attire event with Operation Homefront. It was such a great night and so glad I decided to go. 

Spent most of today running errands and go shoe shopping for the kids. Talk about fun times there. After a quick nap, hit the publish button, I will get back to the grind stone. 

Happy cross-stitching, crocheting or whatever your hobby is!!!!
