Thirty-Six!! Where does the time Go?

Thirty-Six!! That's right 36 yrs ago I was blessed with a bouncing baby Girl! It has been an adventure to say the least with her and though there were no instructions or a manual to assist with child rearing I don't think I have done to bad of a job! She has turned into someone that everyone gravitates to for support as well as friendship. I'm especially proud of the fact that throughout her childhood and into adulthood she has chosen to be around a terrific group of people who she calls friends. So much so that most call me 'Mom' as well! Way beyond cool in my book. I don't want to say that we are 'best-friends' (some things moms don't need to know) but we do enjoy being together even if it's limited. She now has daughters of her own as different as nite/day but alike as well if that makes sense. To her I say Good Luck~~and I Love You Always my Only Born Child.

~another project checked off the list~

Vacation day today! We (H2B) had planned on going out for breakfast then going on a walk tour in Lexington near Transylvania college. Well breakfast happened but that was about it. H2B had to work a crazy shift yesterday 3am-3pm and was still wiped out plus he has a dreaded 'summer' cold trying to get hold of  him. So no tour ~ :( ~ kind of sucked but I switched to plan B, as always there's plenty to do! Starting with turning the mattress and stripping the bed led to while in the basement doing the load of sheets I cleaned up. Were talking dusting, cobweb getting, vacuuming all the while washing and hanging up the sheets, mattress covers, blankets and anything else that fit on my portable clothesline.

5' X 8' sections did this for under $100, and during the winter momawrazzi's feet are HAPPY!

found this online for $65- it has come in handy-plus when I want to I can fold it 'down' and take it outside!!

So though I didn't get to have my 'walk' tour I did however spend the day getting things done and spending time with H2B!!

My Awesome daughter competes (don't know where that comes from LOL), and has done quite well if I do say so.

alot going on~alot to do

I'm busy, my brain is drained, but mostly I haven't kept with my commitment to blogging.
I know, I know its been forever since I have posted but of course there are some really good reasons/excuses?!?  Yea that's what I keep telling my self, LOL. But I have been busy with all the life stuff, and runner daughter stuff, and photography stuff, and trying to loose weight stuff, and so on and on and on and on. Geting back on track is going to take alot more time than there is in a day so I will take things as they come and post whatever task gets started and finished.

I'm going to just wait and see!!

I'm the MOM!

My reward

I look like I've just been caught,,,,LOL!!

Ummmmm Soooooo Gooooood!

I've done well with my eating and water intake this week. So I caved in to the Bavarian  Creme Donut that was 'SCREAMING' my name...LOL! I only bought and ate just one.  Did some housework today and piddled in the yard and planted a few flowers in pots, and helped Hub2B drain the yard pond part way and got the pump going.

Made a triple batch of veggie spag sauce I put 3 serving into baggies to freeze and left out a 'lil dab for dinner this week. For now I'm finishing this post and going to hit the hay. Catch everyone later!!

Jelly Bean Virtual Race~Check!

What the Hell was I thinking!

Recorded steps = 3.288 mi!!
Still not sure what got into me when I signed up to do this 5K virtual race. Here's a shout to Jess at 'runwithjess.com' thanks for doing this.   My young'un is the racer not the 'Momawrazzi' so I walked. It was a challenge to say the least as this was done with an injury on my part. Like the crazy person I am I thought it would be a piece of cake to bowl again after 35 years, and then tripped later that night when walking the dog Andi. Lord knows I didn't want to fall on Andi, so I attempted to "catch" myself. Hindsight is laughing at me~the Witch! My time was terrible even for a walker, (1:05:00) But it's done and I will most likely do it again...the race that is.

picture tells it all

Me a Sports Injury!?!

See where the arrow is pointed?? This bone has no mercy!! 

Yet another view this sucker has had me immobile today,
 thank goodness I worked in an area that I was sitting,
apparently it needs as much rest as possible,
today was that day and the only day I have to devote rest to.

Happy Easter to all!!

Whew!! Get'n~R~Done

It's been busy for me since last post. I made a plan in my head and have worked hard at getting 'most' things done. The biggest accomplishment has been to get the upstairs cleaned and converting a walk in closet into a craft area for me. It's on the small side but it will be fine for my purpose. Also my awesome daughter started her running season the first weekend in February, yeah were talking snow and cold!!  Here are pics from my clean and organized rooms,
full bathroom with a super deep soaker tub!!

can you tell I like 'Roses'

The kitchen is considered a efficiency size.
Where the microwave sits is a plug in for a electric stove!
This table was in really bad shape and too large for this space.
Lucky for me Hub's 2B has a BIL that's a Master Carpenter!

And of course a small frig.

This is the bedroom, it's large enough for a full size bed but I have a
daybed (trundle underneath) in order to have more floor space.
The old stero system in the corner will be going to the
basement once I have the spot ready for it~Yea!!


This is a front view of the living room. We have a futon couch

that when open becomes a Queen size bed!

Hub's 2B 'Kentucky Wildcat Corner'

Yet to come will be pics of the Craft closet, like I said it's on the small side but will be fine for me.

Till next time!
