Let's see...since I posted last:

♥ My baby girl started high school. *sniff sniff* I was feeling old until the first day when I was dropping her off and the guy directing traffic thought I was a student and sent me to student parking. :P

♥ I have a shiny new cherry red Dell laptop like in the commercial!
(lollipop, lollipop, oh lolli lolli lolli :D)

♥ I am completely addicted to True Blood and I'm already an Eric and Sookie shipper. Already reading fanfic and becoming sleep deprived like in the good ole Spuffy days.

♥ Finished all my canning for this year. I just have to finish freezing corn which should be done by tomorrow night.

I guess that pretty much covers it...

*HUGS* to the friend list

Went to dads Saturday and picked beans to can, then ended up stringing said beans for 3 hours. I was so tired and my thumb was killing me. *whines* So yesterday I canned 12 pints of geenbeans which makes the grand total of 32 pints so far. I know they'll be enjoyed this winter but they're killing me now! This will pretty much be my weekend routine until September...canning beans, freezing corn, then canning tomatoes.

Loads of fun I tell ya! ;)

I've been a busy, busy girl the last couple of months with very little time to post. I think that's why I'm enjoying twitter quite a bit, since it's short little posts and I can keep up. But I felt it was time for a real update so here it goes...

In May, I went on Kaitlin's 8th grade trip to Virginia Beach, VA on a took almost 10hours...I will not be doing that again! The beach and Colonial Willamsburg were both nice, but I was exhausted for days after. I just can't beleive my babygirl is starting high school in August. *sniff*

In June, Mike and I watersealed the deck and worked around the house cleaning gutters, planting flowers and general yard stuff...the house looks better than it has in a long time which makes me very happy! It's so nice to have all the big chores out of the way, but I still have so much more to do, like going through clothes, and getting rid of a bunch of Kaitlin's things she never even looks at anymore.

And this month, well, my birthday was July 1st and Mike's was July 11th so we went to Myrtle Beach for 4days. Kaitlin brought a friend and it was so nice to just that Kaitlin's older she can do things she wants *within reason* without having me chase after her. So Mike and got to sit on the beach and just be, just thinking about it makes me smile. Hee!

I've been watching TrueBlood season far very entertaining, and I've watched seasons 1-3 of Gilmore Girls and waiting on S4 in the mail. I think when I'm finished with those I will be starting on Supernatural, and catching up on 4 books I need to read. Shouldn't I be like working in some exercise in there??? I guess I get that by picking green beans and corn at dads and I've already started up the canning again. Wheew! I said I was busy. ;)

Anywho, I hope my f-list is doing well, and I'll try to catch up on that this weekend.

Not much new happening with me lately other than being dog tired, and sitting here wondering why I'm on the computer rather than sleeping. Probably because I've been meaning to update for the last couple of weeks and I keep putting it off, so now when I try to sleep I start thinking...and here I am.

Going ons:
♥ I started watching the new series Trueblood on HBO last Sunday, and I really wasn't sure what to expect because I've read all the books and sometimes "teevee" doesn't do them justice, but I enjoyed the first episode and looking forward to the new one tonight. So far all the characters are really close to matching how I pictured them, now I hope they keep with the storyline.

♥ I barely exercised this week and we ate out way too much and I gained 3 pounds which is teh suck!

♥ I bought a really cute pair of yoga pants for less than 10.00 which will be getting a lot of use due to the above. Hee!

♥ The hubby cleaned the house and did laundry today while I was at work! *pets hubby*

♥ I finally finished canning and freezing vegetables! YAY!

That's about it...boring but true. :P

Hope everyone is safe and well *HUGS*

It's been a busy couple of weeks! I've been canning tomatoes and today I started freezing corn. I was able to do 20 ears today, and I have about 30 more to go for this week and then I get to start all over again this weekend! This past Sunday, Dad, Kaitlin, and I picked 66 ears of corn, 35 tomatoes (that you have to hold with two hands), and a Walmart bag full of green beans! I am quite a bit worn out, but it will be so worth it when I can have fresh veggies all winter.

Kaitlin started school today...the 8th grade, I can hardly believe this is her last year in middle school. :( My baby is growing up way too fast. She's taller than me now!!

Anyhoo, that's a quick update on my week!

My dad moved back last July, and he now lives on a 250ac farm about 40minutes from me, it's been so great having him back! We have a big garden and I learned how to can this year, so I've been canning green beans for the past two weeks. I'm officially tired of looking at beans, and picking beans and stringing beans, and seeing green. Tomatoes are next which will be less work, and a different color at least. *snort* Then I will have yummy vegetable goodness all winter, and feel quite accomplished at the same time! Kaitlin's been a big help and we get to spend quality mother daughter time together, even though she hates green beans and will never eat them. :P

Off to grab a cuppa tea, and catch some zzzzz's
