Last weekend of summer....

Today we took the boys to the zoo. It was a beautiful day. The sun was shining. The humidity was not too high and the crowds we low.

It seems strange that in only 2 days I will have 2 kids in school. I'm so excited and nervous at the same time. I know they will both have a great time but for William it's going to be a lot more work and I'm hoping he will adjust well. For Kyle it more my fear with his allergies. He is so ready for school. I know they will both do great.

I'm just not sure how I will handle the quiet around here with only Logan at home.

New Dawn - Do not read this if you haven't finished the book.

I loved the book until the last few chapters. It just wrapped up to nice and neat. I was waiting for a big fight scene and nothing. :( Not that I wanted any of the main characters knocked off but it was just a let down after a whole book building up to a grand stand off. Over all I still love the books and I'm looking forward to the movie this winter.

Update on computer room; We fixed the plumbing problem and have all the furniture back in the room. I'm working on moving stuff in, but it's going very slow. I need to pick up the pace because I'm not able to work on anything and really want to. Hopefully by the beginning of next week I'll have some pictures to post.

We have a Plumbing Problem....

like always!! Pipes and us just do not get along. We were almost done with our new room when after a shower we noticed a lot of water coming out of one of the cabinets. We put a hole in one of the drain pipes when we hung the cabinet! We had to remove two of the cabinets, fix the pipe, put up new drywall, make it look nice and smooth, repaint that section, and re hang the cabinets to were they will not cause any problems. Well we are still at the make it look nice and smooth step. We are planning on painting tomorrow and then getting the cabinets up the next day. After that it's back to moving stuff into the room.

This move is really making me see how much scrapbooking supplies I really have. It's crazy. I need to get a lot of work done once everything is moved. I trying to use what I have so I have not been to any LSS in quite a while. But I did get some new stamped from Stampin Up and CTMH. Yes I have a shopping problem with it comes to my hobby :)

New Room almost done

Sorry I've been missing in action. I've been busy putting together all the lovely IKEA furniture I got for the new office. I need to make one more trip back to exchange a few items that I got in the wrong size, but once I do that the hard stuff begins. I have to pack up all my scrapbook stuff and the rest of the office and move it to the new one. I'm looking forward to doing that because i'm hoping that will help me organize everything, but I know I'm not going to work on things for a while.

In family news, the boys started their swim lessons today. Logan is completely fearless. He reminds me of me when I was little and my dad was teaching me to swim. I have pictures of me when I was around 3 jumping to my dad from the ladder. I was so excited and couldn't wait to do it again. That was how Logan was, he always had a big smile on his face.

I watched the other Boleyn Girl last night. It did not do the book justice. It was horrible. Read the book and skip the movie. It's really got me interested in the British Royal Family. Some day I'll have to do some research and read some more books about the past Kings and Queens.

I was hoping to start reading Breaking Dawn tonight but for some reason my Amazon order got messed up. I'm going to make a run to the book store tomorrow to get my copy and start reading.
Have a good week!!
