This is how I found Little Bit tonight when I went in to turn off his light.

I had to laugh. He cracks me up. I'll give it to him though, he listened and didn't come out of his room. I guess it's been nearly a month now they have been in toddler beds and for the most part they are doing okay. They have tested the waters though...especially this last week. So looking forward to Spring and Summer when they will just be plain worn out at the end of the day!

So why is it that the cable/phone companies can just screw you over once your "package rate" has expired? I call this morning beacuse our rate has gone up almost $100 in just 6 months. Crazy. The first guy I spoke with told me there was nothing he could do. So I called back a little later after talking to hubby to cancel some things on our service. The girl I spoke with was most accommodating and actually did something about it. Go figure. So we got our rate lowered, same services we have now plus additional ones. Now can you tell me why that is?

Aimless rambling

And the days just keep ticking away. Still hard for me to believe we have less than a week left in February already. Where does all that time go?

So far not so impressed with the paper photo a day thing. Just much more difficult time wise for me in a lot of ways. Online I can do a bunch at once and typing just comes so much easier and faster than handwriting. Plus I can write more about some days if I want and not so limited to space. But that's okay, it was something I wanted to try so it's all good.

The snow is melting. Yuck. If it is going to be cold then I want it to snow. If it isn't going to snow then I am ready for Spring. I think everyone is ready for Spring. I know my boys are!

This is what we seem to be doing most of the time these days...

I have the best neighbors! One of them came and blew the snow from the sidewalk while my hubby was gone yesterday. I really appreciated not having to get out there and leave the boys inside alone. If it hadn't snowed nearly a foot I would have left it but the drive needed to be done for us to get out. I just didn't have time to do the sidewalks and really didn't totally finished the driveway. But I really have the most awesome neighbors ever!!!!! We were so fortunate to get the house we did right in the middle of such great people!

So I don't think I'll be posting from my phone often. Obviously I am not doing something right because it always ends up in several different posts. Strange.

I was looking through some old layouts I had done and came across one I don't even remember doing. Seriously. I don't even remember when I did it much less remember doing it. Very strange because I don't think I have ever forgotten doing a layout before. I guess I'm getting old. I don't know if I intended to go back and do something else to it or what but when I looked at it tonight I was happy with the way it turned out just as it is. You can see for yourself.

We had a really good day today. We met a gal in our neighborhood who also has a 3 year old and stayed at their house half the day! I felt bad for staying so long but every time I said we were going to go she said the kids were playing so well together so we stayed. It was a snowy, snowy day, what else is there to do? The boys had a ball and were totally exhausted tonight. So is mommy!

Must get back in the habit of blogging. Been so busy working on getting rid of stuff and keeping up with the house that I have not blogged in ages! I seem to go through those phases. Will get back into the swing of things I am sure. :)

Do all kids wake up at 5:30 in the morning when they have the freedom of being in a toddler bed? Oh my. I am praying this is not the norm from now on and just an adjustment period. I am seriously NOT a morning person.

It's a scrappy day

Okay, so not exactly sure what in the world happened to my last post. Will have to attempt to go and fix it. For some reason I just noticed it came out in like 6 different posts. Very strange. I guess I still haven't gotten the hang of posting via my phone yet!

So while I was away at my scrappy weekend a few weekends ago, I actually completed a page. I did a lot of other stuff too but this is just a random page because I liked the template. :)

It felt good just to scrap. I did manage to get my 2008 book finished and ready to upload to Shutterfly. I have actually received it back this past week. Was so very excited. Now I just need to get their baby books finished! I also started working on my calendar for 2011 because I am determined not to wait until December this year to attempt to get it all done. Just too much work to cram in at that time of year. So it (digital) and my Project 365 (paper) are all set up and ready to go.

And speaking of Project 365. I actually sat down and put the photos in for January and started the journaling. This feel so strange to do after having done it via blog for the last year. Must try to find a new system for that so I don't forget stuff. And I can't write as much as I could on my blog. Well, I guess I can but it would have to be tucked away in one of the pockets. I'll figure out a good system by December I am sure!

Well, I finally had to take the time to figure out how to post by my phone. It seems that may be the only way I will be able to post these days. Been busy, busy around here. Attempting to get rid of a lot of old stuff so spending all my "free" time working on that.

Poor Hurricane woke up in the middle of the night last night with croup. So we bundled up and went out in the drizzly, cold night at 2am. I have to say this really does work well. Little Bit gets croup a lot. I really wish he would get a regular cold because man he is not fun on steroids. But Hurricane seems to be doing well this morning and has even requested going to Wally World. Hmm...

So hopefully now that I have gone mobile I'll be able to get back to posting more often. Been missing it! Hope everyone is well. Can you believe it is February already? Got anything fun planned for Valentine's Day? What do you do for 3 year olds?
Testing yet again.
