Welcome to my little ol' blog. I'll be upfront about it: I don't blog very often any more. If you found your way here because you read my book "Trailer Life," have a gander! But it's easier to keep up with me on Instagram or on my Facebook page. I have this long, drawn out theory on why I'm a terrible blogger, but that is a story for another day. Enjoy the ramblings of my life from the last 8 years or so.

Busy as a...
Okay, so I haven't really been that busy. I kind of wish I was though. We've had sick kids this week. Will stayed home Monday, Tuesday, and Friday. Kacy stayed home Thursday. Ed has had a fever since Thursday. I have been developing a "thing." I can deal with my "thing" so long as I don't have to do much: it's not like I'm in bed miserable... I'm just really tired, starting to cough, and have to use my inhaler to breathe. On the plus side, I got to take a nap yesterday! And, nothing "hurts." I hate illnesses like sinus infections, or an ear/tooth/back ache. And puking.
Nothing at all has happened on the house this week. Between our super fun day Tuesday, and the snowy weather, which has caused Ryan to get home at 5am (a snow rescue on a mountain), and 2-3am the other nights, nothing is getting done. It's sort of okay though, because the house is ready for an inspection, and there are still little things that can be done that Ryan has worked ahead on. He has this Monday and Tuesday off, and will call this week. He really needs to be there in case something is wrong. It's freezing cold outside, or else I'd force myself out there to tidy up a bit. 36 degrees with cold wind isn't great.
In other news: I have watched "Alvin and the Chipmunks: the Squeakquel" six times in the last 10 days. **Jessie likes to play "toesies." She asked me to play once, and I asked her what the heck "toesies" was... she said that you take off your socks and her toes are the baby toes and my toes are the momma toes. She and Kacy made up the game, and Jessie tries to get her to play every time they are in the shower. **The girls have appointments to get their hair trimed on Monday.**Jessie's birthday is coming up: she's going to be the big 3. She wants to get her ears pierced. I need to find some hair accessories for her hair, and she wants an "Ee-haw" cake. The girls loves donkeys.**I'm going a little stir crazy this week, and although I don't feel up to driving all the way to Bakersfield to hang out and shop and socialize, part of me really wants to! Can you tell? Because I'm rambling now...and I need new sweatpants. Mine are too big/fit funny.
I better stop. This idleness is making me loopy. Back to watching Phineas and Ferb on this snowy/rainy weekend.
**Jessie has a fever today. 102 degrees. Whoop it up!
