busy, busy

sorry i have been neglecting you all!! i know you are sitting on pins and needles wondering what exciting things are happening in my world! :)

with school being out and me trying to finish my contract for the month i have had no time to blog or read blogs. kids everywhere. me trying to keep the kids from killing each other. exhausting.

memorial day hubby decided to get up in the big trees in the front yard and cut down some branches that were blocking the view from kitchen window. holy cow i was scared. that's him way up there. now only 4 more trees to go!

friday we went back to the zoo but took my mother-in-law with us. i just adore her. she is so easy to get along with and the kids love her too. it was a perfect day. and we went a few places we didn't get to see when we were there before. we went to the aviary and saw the flowers and the birds.
amazing!! we could have stayed in there all day.

today we are off to big c's old school. they are having their awards ceremony and he wants to go. we are going to pick up logan, drop monkey off at his house to play with jeremy and head out. afterwards we are going back to logan's to play slip and slide!
it's been so cold here this week that today is the first day it's been warm enough to get into the water. (which is fine with me!)

oh and i had to get a new camera. i just got mine the day after thanksgiving and it's broken. i thought it was the battery and got a new one. nope. just dead. and it would be $80 to fix it and i only paid $84 for the thing!! so i just decided to get a new one. it's a casio. (like my sister's! i copied her.) never again will i buy a kodak. that's 2 camera's in 3 years.

oh and we got digital cable this week! with a DVR. man. my life will never be the same. big c knows how to operate it and i keep finding stuff like the suite life of zack and cody on there. but it's awesome. and hopefully i will be able to get to bed earlier b/c i can zip thru all the commercials!!

have a great weekend!

After owning just one Kodak, I've vowed to never waste my money on such crap.

Cecily R said...

What is it with Suite Life of Zach and Cody? It's on our DVR too and it makes me cringe...

We've never bought a Kodak. Now I guess I'm glad. My next camera purchase will be a Canon.

Hi Kay,

You've been busy. Me, too. Nice looking camera. I have had two Kodaks, and I have been pleased with them.

Susie said...

I like cameras!
Wow you are one busier momma-reno! I totally would have freaked out if my hubby were up in a tree like that! Wow!
The DVR ROCKS! Seems to keep me up later though.....
Nice to hear from you--sorry your weather has been chilly...wait no, weren't you the ones that got to be outside for the lunar eclipse? remember that night? YEah, couldn't even open the doors here it was so cold.

what in the world am I talking about? I'd better get to bed. It's late for me!

Have a gorgeous weekend with your beautiful guys Kay! Looks like it's gonna be a nice one!

bummer on your camera. whoohoo for a new better one!
i love digital cable! SUPER LOVE DVR! you will LOVE IT! it is way faster, and you watch less, because it's on demand, not surfing. FABULOUS! i love the suite life. sadly all those kids shows suck me in!

whoohoo on a new improved view!

Susie said...

Your blog is still talking to me: "alive and kicking" = get off the computer
"dress you up." = now, go get dressed and start living the life I so desperately want to talk about.

Kay, even when you don't post everyday like I crave, you still teach me all the right stuff!

SuperCoolMom said...

Bummer about your camera. I have a Kodak Easy Share and it's been working great for 4 years! Loving that little thing. I get great pics from it and use it daily!

But yeah, when some money falls out of the sky, I'm buying myself a Cannon Rebel.

kim said...

congrats on the camera.

Tell big C he will turn into a twit if he watches Zach and Cody -- for real, I think there are still twit germs on my tv screen from months ago.

good luck with the dvr, say hi to Alton for me -- I'm here if you need to twelve step your way off of it!

kim said...

Kay, tonight is my -- one degree of separation -- iron chef night!
Bummer being, they canceled the tasting due to "the late airing time of the show"...

At first they said they would still be doing a feature menu of the iron chef stuff, but now it's down to just the dessert! So naturally I am dying to see what the secret ingredient was. It must have sucked if all they are duplicating is the dessert!

...DVR it for me, I'll be over tomorrow!
I wish.

Isn't it odd that the only thing you can't take a picture of is your own camera?

Peace out. :)

Slip-n-slides are awesome. Congrats on the camera. Be sure to follow your sister's wiserule about ALWAYS having the strap around your wrist while using the camera...
