I used the laundry sheet last night to wash our sheets and duvet. Toss in the sheet and go. The sheets came out smelling clean and they were definitely less wrinkled than when I use my other laundry detergent. Two thumbs up from me!

As kids we want a cookie we go for the cookie. As adults we want a cookie, we debate if we need the cookie, if we can afford the cookie, who has the cookie for the best price, the best way to get the cookie, the best way to eat the cookie, and the best thing to eat/drink with our cookie. I often get caught up in over planning everything. I always have a to do list. I LOVE checking stuff off my to do lists. I even went out and bought a white board so I could put stuff on it for my husband and I to get stuff done around the house.
You can plan when to get married and all the little details, you can plan on when to buy a house, you can even plan when to start trying for a baby but you cannot plan when to get pregnant. That is unless you are one of those that is brimming with fertility and you look at your husband and you are instantly knocked up.
I'm trying to be more laid back and not over plan. Jon's mom came and I didn't plan a single thing beforehand. I did wake up and get out my day trip guide and plan for the day but I am making progress. This weekend was our first weekend free in forever so I made no plans. Saturday I actually slept in. I had to stay up till 3 am to get myself to sleep in but still. I stayed in pj's all day and we watched movies, I edited pictures, I procrastinated on my homework, I made dinner and dessert, and did not plan or do one thing on my to do list. ::pats self on back::
Sunday I worked my butt off on only 3 hours sleep. I finally stopped when Jon told me dinner was ready. I then worked on putting that stupid spare bedroom together until 12ish.
Have you ever had something on your mind and then you go to church and the pastor does a whole sermon on it? That happened to me this weekend. I have been throwing around some thoughts in my head and with Jon and BAM. I almost didn't even go to church because I only had 3 hours of sleep. Ok God I get it...I heard you. :-)

I have gotten out of I practice with blogging every day. This week has been crazy busy.
I have been checking things off my 101 in 1001 days list like crazy this past week. I have a major update to do later tonight.
Looking at my ten things Tuesday I need to get moving on some of the things on the list.
I puffy heart love my new camera. It is part of the reason I have been such a slacker this week. I have taken pics of the kids and everything else around me and I have been editing in photoshop.

After my other post I need a thankful post because I have many things to be thankful for.
1. Awesome friends- two of in particular listen to me vent about everything and anything and don't judge me when I text them after eating an entire bag of chips. Also for my friend who watched the zoo for us while we were at my parents boat.
2. I just sent the final payment for our house rental in the mountains. This means we are a month away from a week long in the mountains away from it all! WOO HOO!
3. Even though I won't get to keep my insurance and have maternity at least I will still have insurance with maternity through dh!
4. The new bed for the spare room. It will be the one room in the house that is almost completely decorated minus paint.
6. Family- We had the best time with my family this past weekend and I am excited to see dh's mom this weekend.
7. Although I hate my online class I am kicking ass and just got an A on that project I blogged about that I was too stressed/depressed to work on and turned it in with 2 min to spare.
So I thought my new insurance would be dealt with quick and easy and turns out it is not. I think I screwed up one of the questions on my application and I was denied. Stupid mistake=so mad at myself. So I will be on Dh's insurance. This sucks on so many levels. I cannot wait to see how much we pay for a Rx...UGH! Oh well at least I have insurance.
We spent July 4th with my parents and we had the best time. I could've used the time away from Dh but it was nice to have him there some of the time. lol. I missed fireworks on Saturday. I was an idiot and I admit it. We woke up with the sun seeing as we sleep on the back of the boat on an air mattress. Dh left for tubing and I walked and talked the docks with my mom. I started with Sangria and we headed to a friends boat. My glass was empty and she was offering Merlot. If you know me I ALWAYS get in trouble when I drink other people's stuff or I mix. Instead of saying no I said of course. 2 glasses later....we were hot so we headed to the pool. Another glass or two (I don't really remember) and I was drinking bottled water but I don't even remember dh arriving back at the pool or what I said to my mom. I remember starting to feel sick and puking in the bathroom. I was so pissed at myself for doing that to myself. I ended up in the bottom of the boat with the a/c with my head in a trashcan. Thanks for my mom who diligently took care of me and wiped my forehead with a wet washcloth, helped me change my clothes, gave me stomach meds to help my stomach, and made sure I was still alive. Dh checked on me but I would've been all on my own if my mom wasn't there. I did catch a few fireworks from the porthole but for the most part by then I was asleep.
I was up at 6 the next morning and feeling good. Everyone kept asking how I was and asking me if I wanted any wine. I took everything with a smile on my face.
My online class I am currently taking sucks. Our discussion questions are mini projects not actually discussion questions. It is also accelerated because it is a summer course. Who is working 60 hours and taking 4 classes in the fall. That is right...me! Suicide by education?
My house is a disaster and dh's mom comes tomorrow. While we were away this weekend our spare bed broke. I had to drop $200 on a new one. I am sad that our spare bedroom has a new bed before our master.
My summer is completely booked and my other mil wants to fly down and visit for a weekend. I don't think we have a free weekend until September. Is that normal?
I want to start a diet soon. I am leaning towards the sugar busters diet. Dh is my downfall. I HAVE to lose this extra weight though.
