Made It More "Me"

Oh my! I'm blogging again AND I'm actually at the computer! Since Gabbie and Piper (break in typing to go get Gabbie) have been really easy going and not so needy this morning, I've had the chance to work on the blog! Allisyn....well let just say we have had an emotional 4-year-old morning. Even with her emotional meltdowns, she is old enough to let her deal with it on her own. It tends to make her mad when I don't sit around and baby her silly tantrums and meltdowns, but she eventually gets over it.

Anyway, I had time at the computer and I updated my layout. Opinions?

So I think I mentioned starting Weight Watchers again. I'm on day 4. Thankfully, I get extra points for breastfeeding. Most days, I need them! One thing I wish they did differently, is to use your activity points before your extra points. I know in the grand scheme of things it doesn't matter, but in my head, it would make me feel better.

The rearranging of things for better organization is going really well. I've got almost everything moved around like I want it. I just have to move the girls computer desk and computers over from the playroom to my office. Now don't go thinking my girls are super duper spoiled (they are just super spoiled) the computers are hand-me-downs from my aunt and they are only used for learning games. I'm setting up the office/craft room as a "learning center." That way when I'm up here on the computer or at the sewing machine they can be doing workbooks and computer games and arts and crafts. Another goal of mine is to cut back on the TV. It's been off more than it has been on today and I like it!

Another goal of mine this year is to work on giving back more. So, I'm volunteering with OK Humane Society. One of the ways we (my family gets to help even if they [Michael] are less than thrilled) are volunteering, is by fostering. Right now we have 2 very rambunctious terrier mix puppies. I'm thinking that we may end up just fostering kitties. Puppies are very "up in your routine" and kitties can be more confined. You also don't have to watch out for puddles and piles. :-( On the flip side, my floor is getting steamed a on a much, much, more frequently.

So here is a picture of our first foster puppies, "Ariel' and "Aurora." No, we did not get to name these, they came to us already named!
