Just stopping by...

...to say hi. Really, I'm just procrastinating cleaning this house. Yesterday I cut the grass for the first time this season, this is the first year it's needed it so early and it was already overdue. I can't imagine what this season is going to be like. That brings me to my next thing to ramble on about...every time I have to take care of the yard work it seems my girls have this incredible ability to totally destroy the house. How can two of the smallest people I know create such big messes? I swear, it's like they walk through each room just randomly scattering their things...drives me nuts! I shouldn't complain, one day they'll be all grown up and I will miss pulling crayons from between the sofa cushions, crawling under the couch to retrieve a Polly Pocket, barbie shoe, or whatever has found it's way there. One day they might even have kids of their own who will be sure to do the same to them, they'll probably look back smile, and maybe even appreciate it.

Thought I'd share an article my friend sent me last week when I was beating myself up over something parents beat themselves up over all the time....their kids making not so great choices. Made me feel like I might be getting some of it right {at least sometimes}...

Guess it's time for me to get back to cleaning and take care of my clingy dog. I'm getting the feeling she doesn't like the storms.
