You can't leave footprints in the sands of time if you're sitting on your butt. And who wants to leave butt prints in the sands of time?

A picture a day.......

A picture a day in May......with the exception of the last week in May when we will be gone fishing. Hopefully as well to a picture a day I will make time for regular posts as well. So with that said the picture can be old, new, random, or something we have done in the day. Wish me luck I'm going to need it.

Good day gone bad.......

Yesterday started out great it was a beautiful day. We went out to American Falls for a dirt bike ride with the family and my mom and Mike. It was a wonderful ride besides from the one accident that Clayton had he scraped up his chest. The kids had a great time riding in the sand and they did great too. Here are a few pictures from the ride.

Now on to the bad stuff. We loaded up and got on the road a few miles down the road the tire sensor came on. We checked it out and sure enough it was going flat and fast so we found a place to pull over. Well we thought the flat was the worst of our problems not even close. On further investigation we discovered we did not have the correct tool to remove the luge nuts the joys of custom rims ugh......So at this point Mike takes off to American Falls to find the correct tools. Mean while we all sit around for an hour and a half watching cars go by. Out of all the cars that went by only two stopped to see if we needed help. The first one that stopped did not have the correct size. The second one after digging awhile he found the correct size yeah! Got it changed at this point Mike shows back up poor guy he went everywhere. So we thought all the problems were done with ummmm nope not for us. Hey if it were not for bad luck we would not have any luck at all! We headed to Tyson's work to fix the tire and ran into some problems so ended up just taking it home to fix it. Well taking it home and fixing it didn't work out the way we wanted it to we could not get the bead to pop on the tire. So we had to beat the whole center out (reason we could not fix it out at his work in the first place). We got it out and Ty headed back to work to fix it blah blah blah. Well in the end tire is fixed with a very dented up cover piece oh well at this point at least it is fixed. Oh and the correct tool is in the truck now!

So in the process of all of this an unnamed 5th grader in our house discovers that a project is due on Tuesday which is a large part of her state report. Ugh at this point I'm ready to scream and not for ice cream! So as I'm blogging right now the unnamed 5th grader is in a mad dash to finish her project blah.......So there is the good, the bad, and the ugly that happened to us all in one day. What a day that's all I can say. Until next time...........

Saturday night I was cooking hot dogs on the grill and Bo was just waiting for me to drop one for his dinner. hahaha

Traveling Salesman

Dear Traveling vacuum salesman:

I don't want you in my house not today, not tomorrow, not ever. You think by giving me a free travel size Kleenex container it gives you a free pass to come into my home well think again no one comes into my home unless they are invited and you by no means were invited. I don't want you to come into my home and vacuum my carpet. Then tell me it is dirty because my vacuum does not do a good job. You would tell me this vacuum would clean my kitchen for me if it meant I would buy the thing. Well I have news for you I don't want your over priced vacuum I'm perfectly happy with my cheap one and my carpet looks fine.

Sincerely,
Me

A bomb went off in my house.....

To be more exact a bomb went off in my craft/computer room! It is bad really, really bad. I can't even walk into the room little-lone find anything I'm looking for. This is one of my goals for this year is to get this room cleaned and organized. Well I have not done anything with it at all actually I think it has gotten worse then it has ever been before. Here are a few pictures of the bomb zone look at your own risk.



I'm hoping by posting my dirty laundry on here it will give me some motivation to get it all cleaned and organized so I can show you some after pictures. Well off I go the kids are gone for the night and the hubby is not home yet. Happy cleaning to me.....................
