Girl Scout stuff has started up we have our first meeting tomorrow, and Zee has her first dance class tomorrow too. I have a PTC meeting at Kyrie's school tonight I am determined to be more involved. So I am doing what needs to be done to get there. I so miss my Mae Steven's family it was so much more volunteer friendly there. Kyrie will start dance next week, craziness here we come.

My favorite group (don’t tell the other shapes I said that!). We squiggles are truly the idea people — always thinking — always coming up with new ideas. The problem is, WE DRIVE EVERYONE ELSE CRAZY! (But do we care? No!) Our minds just work differently, that’s all. We have spent a lifetime dancing to the beat of our own crazy drummer and wouldn’t have it otherwise. Most of us are creative (that’s our word for "crazy"), and we delight in tackling the world head on. We love trying new things, mainly because we get bored so easily, however, we don’t always follow through and finish all those projects.
By the way, congratulations on finding my website because you probably forgot my name and lost the handout with my address on it and had to call a circle or triangle to get the information, so I’m delighted that you finally discovered me!
- High energy
- Flexible/spontaneous will
- Easily distracted
- Often act or speak without thinking

I know it's hard to get that at 30, Seth retired. It's still hard for us to get but I found this quote that makes it a little easier to see how it's possible.
Retirement is when the living is easy and the payment to get here is hard.
In his twelve years in the Army, Seth worked harder and put in more work then most people working normal jobs. He got less then minimum wage for the hours he put in, and we were lucky if we even got to see him some days. But that is the life of the Military and the Military Spouse. They are people who are tougher then others and made out of a stronger mold. He paid for his early retirement with a huge toll to his mental well being, his body and almost his life. So before you stop to say how easy we have it, take a moment to Remember how much we sacrificed to be here and is all that sacrifice worth the easy life (as you say we have). This easy life as you think means you can never run next to your children when they learn to ride bikes, that five pounds is your limit for lifting things and that does mean your children as well, a life of worrying every time he walks out the door that he will remember all he has to do and get home safe. Our so called "Easy Life" has a heavy price tag and I don't think you would give up everything he has to have it.

We have started a list of all the things that need to be done upstairs I don't even want to broach the list for downstairs yet. I can sum it all up in one word SCARY!!! We did get all the boxes upstairs off to goodwill and the two that needed to get to storage there. Now we have to work on painting Kyrie's room (it's on the agenda for tomorrow), building her bookshelf and getting all the stuff that needs to go to the dump out of here. Then maybe the list wont looks so bad for both upstairs and downstairs.

First Kyrie walked 17 laps at Relay on Friday and I helped at the Panteen both for about three hours. Then Saturday we did a bowling birthday party. The girls had a blast. Then we spent Sunday packing and preparing to head to Oklahoma for my Granny's funeral. Then we will head to Texas for a week before heading back to Maine. It is my first time away from the girls and I am already freaked. Hopefully they are good while we are gone.

Downstairs I am warming Peach `a la Mode and first let me say it will make you want to lick the air it smells so good. And it's such a strong smell I can smell it at the top of the stairs. Fresh from the orchard, ripe and juicy fruit-stand peaches simmered in sugar and topped with a fluffy dollop of sweet vanilla cream. Yum!

Now on to the Scentsy. I put in Sugar Cookie downstairs and it smells like yummy Heaven. Warm, sweet blend of butter, sugar and creamy vanilla. Yum is all I have to say about that.
And upstairs I have Faerie Blossom, at first this morning it was a little strong for my headache but let it do it's thing and I am so glad I did. It has a very calming smell to it and it's very fruity. An fantastical scent of lychee fruit and watermint, ethereal sweet lotus, and violets.

We started going through stuff and so far have come up with a box for the garage sale. We still have a ton left to do but the weather has not been our friend through the whole thing. We need to take more "staying" boxes to storage so I can get to more stuff to go through. I also have been working on owls for my Aunt. They are all cut out now I just have to glue them all together then mail them off. Then I need to start working on the cuts for Megan and Janelle and I have owls to make for a friend because after seeing the ones for Teresa she wanted some for her daughter's room.
We got the closet doors down in Kyrie's room now we just need curtains and a pole to hang them up for a new door. Seth patched the hole behind the door, he just needs to sand it then we are ready for the first round of painting. We have a soft white picked out for the base coat before we sponge on the pink and do the trim in the black. Then it will be time for the fancy stuff and I just can't wait for all the extra's. We are going to put her furniture on layaway at the end of the month, along with looking for the curtain/closet door stuff. I also have an idea I got from my friend Alayna for this awesome photo section. I also need to find some things for Zee's wall and we have to get rid of the couch and her room is ready to go. Then it will be time to start getting the hallway, kitchen and living room ready for painting.

So the warmers were changed yesterday and I put Sandalwood and Cranberries upstairs (it's a BBMB (Bring Back My Bar) scent) and it's so wonderful. And downstairs I put Wishing Well. It was way too strong and I had to empty out the warmer and change it before I could sleep because it was so perfumey. So I put in White Tea and Cactus and it was so calming after the headache I had and then coming down to a ton of perfumey things with Wishing Well did not mix well.
Hopefully the rest of the week we can get more of the basement done and stuff set aside to have a garage sale. Then we can start with the work to Kyrie's room. We have a hole to patch, then we are painting white, then sponging pink throughout the room then doing the trim in black. We also got curtains to put up and are going to take the closet doors down and replace those with curtains. Then Kyrie's room will be all done except for she needs new furniture.

Upstairs I am warming Pomatini ~ Pomegranate and grapefruit tonic, effervescent soda bubbles, and fresh berries.
And for the month of May all Amber Road products are 10% off. I love this scent. It's a wonderful manly type smell that is comforting and cozy.
And remember all commission made for this month will be donated to victims of the tornado's in Alabama. So stop on by my website and check out what is new and Scentsy up your rooms!

So there's more then one picture but that's because a ton of things make me laugh. There are the girls and you wouldn't believe how hard it was to pick a picture of each girl (I have tons of pictures that make me laugh when I look at them of the girls) Then there are the cats and My Mom always makes me laugh and of course Seth. There is tons more I laugh a lot but here are the things that make me laugh the most.
