But then I got to thinking. Why is the thing that hooks to our gutter (to drain water away) laying out like that. So I decided to investigate. I investigated from afar because the "stunk" smell was stronger over there! This is what I found....
Almost the entire thing was pulled up out of the ground. I was all "what the hell happen." Then I figured it out. Because we haven't buried the end of the hose (even though we have lived here almost 3 years)....you can see it here sticking out into the yard..
I think the "stunk" crawled up in there and got stuck. After thinking he was being attacked he sprayed. And oh boy did he spray! I guess he freaked, and while trying to get out he pulled it out of the ground and off the gutter. That's the only thing I can figure anyways! We haven't looked to see if it's still stuck in there. To be completely honest we are both too scared! I thought about sending Titan over to look, but then thought Kelly might get mad when he reeked! (Just kidding!) We've decided to have my father-in-law come over. He will do ANYTHING! So as of now we may or may not have a "stunk".

Next, tape off the glass part.
I bought the spray paint chalkboard paint, but you can also get it in "normal" paint. I just thought the spray paint would be easier on this small of a project.
Next, you just spray away!!
some days it may show the menu or some cute saying...who knows the possibilities are endless!! Hope you enjoyed this little project. I hope to post more as I do them.

Tomorrow I think we are going to Jump Extreme. It's basically a placed filled with those huge blow up slides and stuff. It should be lots of fun! I will post pictures of it tomorrow! As for now it's bath time...and probably bed time soon....I need some REAL sleep :)

This is what I'm suppose to cram it all into....
Yeah right!!! We all know that wasn't going to happen! Guess what....it didn't! I had to add another suitcase. Let's just hope it all fits into the car! If not I guess one of the kids is going to have to ride on the roof....

The sucker was the "bribery"

My favorite part of spring cleaning is getting the kids new "wardrobes" out. I love to shop for their change of season clothes. Now their closets are stocked and ready. If only the sun will come back...it seems to have disappeared!
I also went to my first yard sale of the season! I only purchased two things. One was an old window that I'm going to turn into a chalkboard. I will post pics once I get it done. The second was a play mat for Liddy. I only spent $8, so I figure the first yard sale was a success. I hope to go to more this summer. I just hate getting up early to go! I'm not a morning person, and the idea of getting up at the crack of dawn...uh not so much! I would rather they start around 9! Hopefully I will motivate myself to go and find some deals.
Well, sorry this was a less than entertaining post :( I will hope for something exciting to happen in the BUSY week we have ahead!

Laney: Jax hit me
Jax: My arms couldn't see where they were going
Seriously, where does he come up with this stuff?!? Don't get me wrong, I'm sure Laney deserved to be hit. She can be quite ornery at times. She likes to push his buttons, or anyones for that matter. She will intentionally do things or take things knowing full well it will set him off. She is so stubborn at times too. (I don't where she gets that from ;) ) Earlier today she held her feet over top his cars, why you ask, simply to be a brat! That's right, I admit my kid is a brat. Both of them are at times. I don't remember fighting with my brother that much when I was that age. Maybe we did and I just blocked it from my memory. I was probably so traumatized by it! LOL
My brother and I aren't real close. We went different directions growing up. I was into partying and sports, he was into horses. I wish we had more in common, but the teen years separated us. I can go a month at a time and not even talk to him, and when I do it's through texting. I only talk to him on the phone about once every 6 months. He lives in Texas, so that doesn't help any! I do know though that if I called him tomorrow and said I need you here, he would be here. Even though we aren't best friends, or even close friends, he will forever and always be my brother. I would not trade him for anyone else. I know he would go above and beyond to help me with whatever I needed. And I would do the same in return. I love my brother, and wish he lived closer. It's even harder now. He has a beautiful daughter that I want to see everyday. I wish he just lived "up the road" so our kids could play together. I want them to grow up together. I want them to go to school together, play sports together, go to Granny and PawPaw's together. Maybe someday, you never know. They may move back to Indiana or us to Texas. (I doubt it, but never say never)
I hope one day Jax and Laney will feel this way about each other. Right now though, they have a love hate relationship. Some days they don't fight at all. Those are the days that give me that glimmer of hope. Those days are FAR and FEW between though! So for now I will continue to break up the fights and watch out for the "arms that can't see."

I work a 50 hour shift, that's right I said 50, every other weekend. This allows me to be home with my kids through the week. So it's like I'm a stay at home mom, but I still work full time. I also work a couple nights through the week on my weekends off. Denny can be home with the kids whenever I'm working. It's a win win for our family. And I know what you are thinking...do you sleep? Yes, I have my very own sleep room, and by room I mean a closet! LOL It's not very big, but it has a bed, recliner and TV. It works just fine for what I need when I'm here. The ER just calls and wakes me when I have an xray. I'm here now actually in my comfy recliner. I'm sure you are thinking..should she be blogging at work? Well I figure I get a 30 minute lunch break for every 12 hours I work, so this is one of my lunch breaks!! That way they can't can my crack! LOL I really enjoy my job....most days! I think it's like that anywhere you are. Every job has it's ups and downs. I'm lucky enough to work with some GREAT people!! I couldn't ask for a better crew on my 50 hour shifts! They make it fun to come to work, and you need that when you are here for as long as I am!!! And just in case my week day crews are reading this...you guys are just as great, but I only see you for a measley 12 hours! I will maybe try to take some pictures of the weekenders later to post, but they may not oblige! I think they worry that if I get a bad picture I will use it for blackmail! LOL
Anywhoo....that's about all for now. I will try to post again tomorrow(or maybe tonight), but I make no promises. Sometimes my weekends are chaotic and I don't even get much rest, and others are easy peesy. Here lately it has been nuts due to Paoli Peaks, a local ski resort. Luckily this is their last weekend!!! YAY!! You have no idea how excited we are here at the hospital :)
On another note here's a cute picture of Laney "holding" Liddy from earlier this week. It was too cute not to share.
Laney always says how "heby" Liddy is.

After they were off to school us girls come home for naps. Laney always wants to stay awake. She says she's not tired, but then almost falls asleep on the way home. I took this picture today before she layed down...she's a cheeser:)
On another note (I told you I wonder) Liddy had the cutest shoes today....I wonder if they make them in my size?
