Today is my first official day of painting. I always love the finished product but the actual process of painting is so tedious to me. I am tired of our current color but I can't justify hiring someone to do what I can do myself. There are enough "things" that I can't do on my own I better take advantage of this simple project.
I may as well mention that my house has been un-finished for a month now. We had the floors started the beginning of October and we are still not put together from that. I didn't realize how hard it was to get someone to come finish a job. I decided that if the baseboards were going to be off, I may as well paint.
Does anyone need something to do for the next couple of days???
I'm just askin', just askin'!!

Bryce Canyon

If you haven't been, it's worth going. The lookout points were unbelievable and the hiking was unreal. I still wonder how nature can create such a sight. I will confess by the last hike the kids were ready to be done. Thank goodness we didn't have plans to stay another 3 days.

I'm a winner....

Mr. T says so.

Conversation in the car today.

Me:(to Ted, while kids are playing in the backseat) I didn't get anything done today. I totally failed. I'm a failure.

Mr. T:(with great enthusiasm) Mom, you vacuumed this morning. You're a winner!

Me: Oh yeah, you're right. I am a winner.

You never know when they are listening. Thank goodness someone was listening today because now I'm not a failure for the day. PHEEWW!!!

The changing of the colors!!

Today we went up the canyon to check out the changing of the colors. We were not disappointed, but I never understand why I don't go up there more often.
Of course we had to get a family photo. I knew I should have washed my greasy hair but what is a family photo if you aren't really you, right??? Ted didn't do his hair either so I don't look half as bad.
On Saturday morning I ran on Tibblefork Trail head. If you live close by you MUST do this before the weather turns bad.
On this particular part of the trail, I ran face to face with a moose last year. It was pretty scary but thank goodness he was intent on eating so he didn't decide to make a chase out of the
whole experience. This year there were a few squirrels and that's about it.

So, call me and we can go running!

Good-bye carpets

We are re-doing our floors after 10 1/2 years. I know, it was long over due but thank goodness I didn't do it any sooner. This has been a dusty, long mess. We are almost done. I can't wait. I had to empty out the pantry and stick it all over the counter tops. Needless to say, I didn't cook all last week(I didn't feel too bad about that). I will love the new floors once we get our house back together.
