It has been a busy week and a half. I was a little sad to enter September. I love the back-to-school feelings BUT hate saying goodbye to the good weather. I thought the weather was changing and had gotten abit depressed about that. But thankfully the good weather has lasted. The kids both started school last week and both are enjoying it. Ethan even more then Alicia, which says a lot as she loves her school. :) Sadly there is no air conditioning at the school so they come home pretty hot and sweaty. They are ready for fall. :)
I joined a gym the first day they went back to school. So a lot of my alone time has gone to that. I Love it. So nice to get out and see grown ups every morning and get in shape. My goal is to have something to show for it by January.
We are also painting the inside of our house. Yep, 5 years later we are adding color! Last Thanksgiving we painted the dining room and I knew which colors would continue into our halls, kitchen and great room but here it is MONTHS later and we are just now doing it! I think with small group starting back up we both decided it was time to paint! I am so happy about this. But this runs us into othe expensive problems. Like what to decorate these newly painted walls with. I have all kind of ideas but our newly constructed back yard does not have a money tree!
What else, hmmm. . . I won $25.00 from expotv.com for amazon.com! I had referred someone and that entered me in a contest! I WON! I need to give thanks to Rachel for actually taking me seriously when I mentioned expotv.com and for signing up under me. By the way, since joining at the end of February and that first initial post I have made $943.00! Yep that is right. Over $900 dollars, too bad it has already been spent on Disney tickets! Don't you wish you had signed up then as well. :) Well here is another shot. If you have any questions I can answer them. But right now you can do 20 videos a month and get $10.00 a piece. Sometimes the rules change month to month but it has been like that for about 3 months now.
O, and I also finished The Shack and am going to do a post on it soon. Just thinking over some stuff in it.
