I'm so tired of my family being sick. Duffy has been sick off and on since late October. Zoe has had at least 3 colds and the flu once. Teagan has had a runny nose off and on, is teething (molars - FUN!) and has been sick the last 2 days. I've had a cold for the last few days and feel crummy! I'm ready for spring and everyone to feel better!

My husband has a new love. She stands over eight feet tall and six feet wide and weights a ton (or more). She's younger than me (DOB: sometime in 1984) and needs a little more love and affection than me somedays. I think he spent more money on her for Valentine's day but what can I do - it's not everyday your husband falls for another! He definately has been spending more time with her lately and she is getting WAY more attention; he's says that won't be the case forever - we'll see. When he's not with her, he's online looking at things for her - gifts to make her more comfortable and feel younger.

He has lovingly named her Elsie (or LC for Land Cruieser) - welcome to our family, I guess....

Book Club

When we moved to Sequim 3 years ago (holy cow, has it been that long?), I started going to a book club where I was the youngest member. And I'm not the youngest member by a year or two, it's more like 25 years! There have been, on occasion, other younger women, but I have been the consistant "young" one. I have come to truely love my bookclub ladies - it is one of my monthly highlights.

We spend some time discussing the books we read but it was been more of a chance to learn and grow from each other. It is amazing the story each person has to tell, since we have all lived out different experiences and challenges. Thank you for making my world bigger!!!

Children Playing

My Friday's consist of being home, doing laundry, cleaning bathrooms and children playing. For awhile now, I've been watching Theo, almost 3, on Fridays while his mom works. Theo is an only child and I think, sometimes overwhelmed by Zoe and Teagan. Yet, they all have the greatest time. Right now, they are into playing house - poor Teagan is everything from the little sister/brother to the dog and Theo is either cooking or sleeping. Zoe is the definately the mother, leading the "family" and telling everyone what to do next - hmmmm, wonder where she learned that????

So far today we've played house, built a tent, took it down (Zoe had some time in time-out over this part) and now they are filling back-packs with play food and toys and heading out on an adventure to my bedroom! Sounds like loads of fun!

I need motivation. I read the blogs of my friends (you all are way better bloggers than I, by the way!) and realize that I have to get my butt in gear and do some blogging; you, know, since I like to write and all!

I've always thought of myself as being somewhat organized and tidy, that is, until I look at my spare/computer/craft room! How can anything get done in this mess?

The bed was Christmas wrapping central over the holidays and has now become the catch-all for all sorts of crap (the box of clothes to send to Guthrie, old baby toys, the Coach box from my purse, etc.). The thing is, everything on the bed is organized in their appropriate piles, etc. I just have to do something with it! I'm so embarressed!

It has become this neverending task to clean my craft desk. Just ask Darah - we talk about it almost every Friday over coffee. It's embarresing. I'm stifuling my creativity because I can't seem to clean my desk!! I have all sorts of ideas but they are all in my head at this point in time!

So, Darah was telling me about her friends cleaning routines, etc. and mentioned doing 15 minutes of decluttering everyday - I think I will start that, today, after I finish my coffee. Maybe after my shower and getting the girls dressed. Does thinking about it count? See, I'm back to my motivation issue!
