I Survived Spring Break 2013...

Forget tees that say this for teens "surviving" Panama City.  Let's print up some for moms...where the words really mean something.

I made it.  I did it. 10 days of Spring Break.  I didn't "lose it" either, not once.  It's a dang miracle.  (At least I don't think I did.  Who knows, the whole week is a blur.) 

The house is a WRECK, I know that much...
How do you eat an elephant?...One bite at a time!  I'm taking some of my own advise (That I haven't used since I became a mother of 3) and setting the timer every day this week!  Wish me luck, I'm gonna need it.

I have a bunch of nothings floating around in my head right now, so I'll just go for it.

-JB and I cleaned out our closets Easter Sunday.  Random, but much needed.  We got rid of two large black garbage bags full of clothes and it felt really good.  In the process I found a pair of Gap overalls that somehow make it through every closet clean out.  I just can't bear to part.  We had so many good times...

Me:  Do you think overalls will ever come back "in"?
JB:  No, I'd get rid of them.
Me:  I think I should keep them for some reason.
JB:  I guess they'd work for a quick Halloween costume.
Me:  I could keep them to paint in.
JB:  Are you planning on starting your own paint company or moving business?
Me:  Maybe!  -busting out laughing-

It's conversations like these that get us through hours of closet clean-up, and 10 years of marriage.

-The kids use the word "human" a LOT.  This is a word that has never really been in my vocabulary and I'm surprised how many times a day I hear the word "human" in my house.  It's a really interesting word.

-This is for you Missy...Jay had a Fun Run fundraiser a couple weeks ago.  I love the music they play and I was already dancing a little...Then, over the speakers they say "Okay parents!  Let's see your best dance move!"  Miss, you know my just came so natural.  Needless to say, I got props from the announcer.  JB was one proud hubby (I know in his head he was praying they didn't play WyClef because then it would have been a full on dance off).  My poor kids.  I'm already breaking out my best moves for 1st grade...Who knows what will be coming in the Middle School years?!  Be VERY afraid!

-JB and I gave the front porch a face-lift yesterday.  I loved this line from SGE "I think all that could change (divorce rate) if one of the requirements for getting a marriage license is that the couple must first complete some sort of home renovation project together...those are the tests of true love."  I 100% agree with Melanie, JB and I have had some of our best (and worst, ie Heartwood fence with a two "man" auger) moments in the middle of a home improvement project.  But ultimately, they bring us closer...working toward a common goal then standing back to admire what WE did together.  There is nothing like it.  Before and Afters coming soon.  Y'all are going to love it!

After the face lift I feel the need to name our house.  I know she's not human, but we are going to come up with something...
