About Me

I am a mother of three, a wife of one. I have way too MANY animals. I love people, I think most people are good natured. I try to give people the benefit of the doubt. I love planting and baking. I love anything that involves spending time with my family. Time is the most precious commodity we have. I am fasinated with butterflies, they are incredibly cool!

Wouldn't you know it?

It is a beautiful day here in my world, the sun is shining and the air is crisp. The kids got off to school with hardly any hassles, (aside from some arguing and punching) OK a few situations. No real injuries.

I have been volunteering up at the school every day before and on Tuesdays after until 5pm. My daughter is a safety patrol this year and we have been doing all sorts of things for Safety Patrol so that she can go to Washington in the Spring. It costs $550 per person, so that is a lot of fundraising. We have been making these really cute pencil toppers, key chains, and cell phone charms so far. Before school I sit in a room and sell the pencil toppers for them. It is a lot of fun doing the crafts with them. My daughter's school has been open for 16 years and have only went to Washington 1 time can you believe that? I was like they are going if we have to fund raise every weekend! They get this opportunity once in the fifth grade here, and I don't want her or her friends to miss out.

So the dogs are loving the cool weather, they are all spunky and playful, kinda the same way I feel. I love it when it is a little cool, not really cold. I am so ready for the Holidays, I haven't decided if I will dress up for Halloween this year or not, Hmmm. I'll think on that for awhile and get back to you. Well have a wonderful Thursday, and I have to go write a paper for class tonight, fun fun.
