Admit it, you have all been impatiently waiting for my next post, and your lives are not complete without being able to read about my most interesting life......especially you Briana. I can't help it my life is just so full of exciting little adventures, but it is okay I won't tell anyone your secrets are safe with me.....all of them.

Well, lets see what exciting thing should I tell you about first? Oh yeah, I (get to) be upstairs to fill in for the secretary because she took another job. Okay this is bad news, it is very cold upstairs and I don't mean weather......brr! It is so bad that all of us secretaries that work for the Division Chiefs have been fighting over who gets to go next. The really funny thing is one of the Admin Asst. is a guy and he was just up there. He wanted to apply for the job.....that was before he was up there. Poor thing he couldn't wait to get back to his old job.

So what shall I do......I have decided to be so nice that I drip it all over the place. I though about screwing things up so bad that they would never ask me back but I am too nice (just like I did when Rob went TDY and mowed the grass) I never had to mow again I wasn't allowed. Pray for me.

The Entertainment Center

The entertainment center is almost done, Rob still is going to make some doors on part of it. I am so proud of him, it looks so much better than anything I could have bought. He is so skilled at wood working. I just tell him what I want and he is able to do it.

Still making improvements around the house. I dragged my husband all over yesterday looking for some wicker chests to go up on my closet in the bedroom for storage. We had to stop at three Ross' before I found matches, and then he had to go back and get an extra one that I decided at last I must have. "What a man".......he loves me.

I got a couple of baskets to go in the den in the entertainment center too. The den is finally starting to get uncluttered. We bought a washer and dryer that we could stack so we could move the freezer into the laundry room, and it turned out so good. Now that nasty looking freezer is out of my den. We still have to do some more uncluttering, but we are getting there. James love the entertainment center cuz the TV sets up higher and he can play his new baseball XBOX game on it. I think BeBe (the cat) likes the new den too.

Pictures Around the House














































How about those curtains?
If you notice all the blaid lines up.










Pictures of My Painting Project

Now the boys say they don't see the difference, but I do, the difference is now clean and not dirty. I white washed my brick and I am so much happier with it, Rob liked it better before, but I was sick of looking at the dingy yellowish dirt in the motar.

Doing the Funk

Mom told me I haven't been writing on here lately, so she says I must be in a FUNK! I don't really know if you can call it that, but I definitely haven't felt like writing. I do get in this funk mood now and then in my life. What does it mean?

No, I am not depressed, if I were I would be writing non-stop. The mood as I like to call it, my husband knows it well is my "I am at the beach" mood. What does that mean? I want everyone to just leave me alone.....and I crave quiet. When I get in these moods I picture myself running away from home and becoming a hermit somewhere cut off from the world. No I would never really do it. It is just a feeling I get from time to time.

It happens maybe every 3 to 4 years. I just close down for a while. God and I talk a lot and maybe it is me taking some time to get closer to him. I don't know, but yes mom I am in a funk. It will pass it always does.

Hey, and thanks for noticing, just means that you really know me and that makes me happy. My mom loves me so much she knows my moods. Nobody else has asked except you. I love you Mom. This is funk goddess saying, "over and out peoples".
