in chalk


There it is written in chalk, on the driveway I love my husband. I must say that I love him more now then the day we got married.
Yesterday my girlfriend and the kids moved into their new place. I must say that it is strange not having the little ones here, but I think I like it better.
I like it better because now I can go back to being Mrs. Kelly. For a while there it felt like I was parenting more children. My girlfriend and I have very different parenting views, and neither one of us is right or wrong, it is what it is.
I am waiting on the babies to get up. I can't believe how long they are sleeping. They sleep about 12 hours a night! This group is really been easy going compared to some of the other groups.
I am having more issues with Ryan. Issues that you would think I should not be having at this age. One of the marines said to me "Mom you need to get Ryan some proactive." I said "No, he needs to soap on his face." Yep we are back to having basic hygiene issues. I went and found some of the girls face wash and showed him how to use it, but he did not use it. He even admitted that he is not using it. So now I am back to washing his face every night. It is clearing up, but dang! I am so sick having a two year old in the house.
I finally went and got new tires for the car yesterday, but when I got in the car it smelled like something had died in there. Something did. There was a bag of meat from my last shopping trip! I threw that out, cleaned up the carpet and got an air freshener. Lets hope the smell goes away.
One of my girlfriends called me and told me that some people moved out and left some stuff behind. So I went and looked through everything. I scored a new hose, a three tier plastic storage bin, a picture for miss Becca's room, and a new basketball. I just love free stuff. I am going to use the plastic tier thing to put my sewing stuff in.
Speaking of sewing I have an idea. I am not sure how well it will work, but I have an idea. This year for the Marine Corps birthday ball, I would like to green it up. They use paper place mats, and paper napkins. I have been collecting cloth napkins, and I need a total of about 60 of them. I think I have 20. I was also thinking about making some simple place mats. This way everything can be washed and reused next year. Now I said this was an idea because I don't know if I will be able to get it all done. If I can't get everything done, then I am going to at least green up the head table. It may be a baby step, but it is a step.
Today I do not have a lot that I need to get done, so I am thinking that I need some lake time. Then for dinner I am going to make pork stir fry. I have fresh carrots, spinach, green beans and onion. I think that will do. I can make up some rice and boom there is dinner. I am going to add more vegi's then meat. Hubby loves stir fry and has not caught on that I put less meat in it. What ever it works for us.
My laundry is calling me. I swear it never ends.

I like your idea about going green for the Marine Ball; I'll keep my eye out if I see anything in the few garage sales I hit here and there

stir fry is always good, no matter what meat (or no meat) that goes in it; and so healthy too!

I've been getting nice cloth napkins at the Goodwill and other thrift shops pretty cheap. But of course you would never get 60 that match. I think I'm going to start those soft dolls tomorrow. I got some remanents at Wal Mart today for doll clothes. I'm anxious to sew again...Linda in Washington state
