Outside My Window - It is dark, they are all closed up in the evening since it is starting to get cool.

I am Thinking - That I really need to be better about recording everyday things.

I am Thankful - For my wonderful marriage.

From the Kitchen - Tonight was cinnamon raisin french toast, had to use up leftovers.

I am Wearing - A tank top and my new organic cotton shorts from REI, so excited to be able to fit into clothes from there and find them on clearance.

I am Creating - Organized files for my digital scrapping supplies.

I am Going - To Seattle on October 2nd to see "Wicked"

I am Reading - Still Dark Fever, haven't done much reading lately

I am Hoping - That my beautiful anniversary roses last through the weekend.

I am Hearing - Snoring Labs reminding me I need to go to sleep and two boys that are still awake at 10:30, are you kidding me?

Around the House - Is a crazy mess from being sick this week.

One of my Favorite Things - My mattress that is calling my name.

A Few Plans for the Rest of the Week - Soccer, football, and BBQ party at my sisters, gonna be a busy Saturday!

Nine Years Ago...

Tonight I was partying with all of my best friends and family celebrating the best decision I've ever made. I married the love of my life and my very best friend that day.
Then I spent the rest of the evening hunting him down between beer runs. Ah well, just a preview of our lives to come.
I love you babe! Here's to a long and happy life together...

Please Permit a Little Whining...

'Cause I feel like crap and I want to. I felt horrible yesterday with aches and chills but no fever which was awful especially since it was beautiful out and I am sure there won't be many more days like that. Plus the house is torn apart since we had to bring some furniture back home that was in storage so we are trying to redistribute again. I didn't work on it at all on Sunday. I did manage to get through the laundry one load at a time with big rests in between though. Thank goodness football has started so I didn't have grand expectations yesterday anyway.

Today I woke up and knew exactly what was wrong, still no fever but the pain had localized. Definitely a kidney infection! So stayed home from work, got kids to daycare, me to urgent care and then the pharmacy. Oh, before all of that, the Tahoe wouldn't start this morning and I was too sissy tired to jump it or even hook it up to charge so I had to drive Josh's truck (thank goodness it was here) Now I'm wiped and will be in the recliner for the remainder of the day.

Okay, whining completed! Tomorrow is another day (and the antibiotics will have kicked in)...

Colts - Game 1

I figured I'd better get this posted before tomorrow since they have their second game in the morning! The Colts won their first game last season (all five squads won, so they are 5-0). It was so fun to watch and Josh was almost hoarse from yelling when it was over. Can't wait for tomorrow afternoon!

Josh is coaching, well assistant coaching, a Grid Kids football team this year. He was a little hesitant at first but knew he needed to get involved so the boys could be on good teams when it was their turn to play.

So much for the hesitation! Three weeks in and it is all he can talk about-he absolutely loves it! He is coaching the beginners (7-8 year olds) which is perfect for him. I am so happy Mack talked him into it. Although it takes a lot of time (M, T, Th, practice and games on Sat), it is great to see him so into something and get a break from work.
