saturday confessions...

i'm linking up with
for some confessionals:)
i've been reading hers each saturday and keep meaning to join in...

so here we go
i'm now onto reading Francine Rivers Redeeming Love.
which i've been told is one of the best books of all time.
i'm almost 1/2 way through.
and i have yet to agree with the multitudes.
my 3 year old still wears diapers.
he has zero interest in the potty.
which melissa so kindly reminded me.
i, too, stink at potty training.
i bought a bed in Dec.
my husband won't put it together.
so, after 6 months, i dismantled the old one.
he hasn't had a bed to sleep in in 2 nights
 (let's forget that i'm kinda in the same situation there too okay?)
he'll have his back when he gets around to putting ours together
 : D
i dropped my camera today.
thank GOD for lens covers.
totally broken,
and i had just put on my best, most expensive lens!
i needed my bunco group last night.
not only was it fun as always,
but it was nourishing and breathed some life back into me.

God Bless,

(what?  don't you play baseball in a pink sparkly dress?)

so my last posts have been...
"i'm gonna write something just to say , yes, i have blogged recently".

what can i say?
i've been 'spring' cleaning like a mad woman.
only it seems as though each time i turn around it's all undone again.
little savages!

and i had to laugh when i read in a homemaking article that wiping down cabinets and walls should be done once a year.
i do that every couple weeks and sadly,
i'm sure it still looks worse than the lady doing it once a year.


i'm up to my ears in homeschool materials.
which i was beyond excited to get and pour over.
and yet, when it got here,
i was ov-er-whelmed!

and then i got a call from the kids school.
she said she had heard i'd be homeschooling next year and needed a confirmation so they didn't place my kids for next year.
i had about a full second of panic before saying yes.
yes, i am planning on homeschooling my kids.

 the panic was very temporary.
and all i keep feeling is that YES,
i am doing it!
i made a good choice.
the right one.
i KNOW i did.

regardless of what people think,
i am excited to be home with my kids
they are BLESSINGS.
i'm learning to love dishes.
crayons on the wall.
toothpaste on the bathroom ceiling (oh yes, there is).
( i swear they are not being strangled.  it looks bad but it was funny)
i've also been reading.
i go through phases.
i won't read for a month, maybe a little more.
then i get the itch.
 and i scratch it until i've managed to devour 4,5,6 books in a matter of a couple weeks.
so i've read about 7 in the last 3 weeks.
i finally read
To Kill a Mockingbird!
and realized that, no, i had never read it in highschool.
i must have smooth talked through that one.
it was beautiful.
currently next to my bed is Sherlock Holmes.
eagerly anticipating the next movie!

(do you see honey's face in this?  cracks me up!  our daughter is brutal!)

so what have YOU been up to?

God Bless,
