Am I The Only One Who Runs Out of Blog Titles?

Um, it's October. What the heck? Where is time rushing off to? Can I just say that I am a little panicky that there are only 12 weeks until Christmas? Do I have you all in a panic now? {Please don't tell me that you are already done with your shopping, k?}


Happy 1st of October! I'm feeling so sad for my blog. Poor thing just doesn't get much attention anymore :( What with house-building and homeschooling and day-to-day upkeep. And no offense to Blogger, but I recently found another place that I love. And it is consuming! Any of you belong to this fabulous group? So much to learn, so little time.

So. What's been going on around here . . .

We are finishing up electrical on the house. What a relief this is. I had no idea what a job it was! Do I sound like a broken record? Our front door was put in a few days ago, the painters are coming this weekend to finish the exterior, next we wire for phone service, and after that a few more odds and ends and then . . . and then . . . and then . . .

Insulation and Sheetrock! Woo-hoo-hoo!

Of course that means that we are getting close to a time when I am going to have to be making a LOT of decisions. Have I ever mentioned that I'm not much of a decision maker? Well, I'm not. I'm much happier when someone else is making them. I guess I'm always afraid I'm going to make the wrong choice. But Jeremy is so busy with the building part, and let's face it, he's not really into choosing appliances, paint colors, light fixtures. I find it all exciting, I just don't want to mess it up.

Yep, life is about to get even crazier.

In other news:

♥ Kenners went in for her post-op check yesterday, and the doctor is happy with the way she is healing.

♥ After her appointment we met Gramps for treats at Baskin Robbins.

♥ We have had some gorgeous, sunshiney weather this last week that we all have enjoyed.

I'd say we've had a blessed week!

Oh, and before I forget . . . a couple of Friday Funnies {just for you Heather} ;)

{These come to you specially from, who else, Makenna}

♥ Last night as the girls and I were washing faces and brushing teeth, Kam got into the Q-tips {again} and started shoving them through the heat vent {again} ~ this is a fun game for her, don'tchaknow. Kenners was the first to notice:

Kenners: Mama, Kam is making a mess of the ear cleaners again.

Sierra: Ear cleaners?! {snort} They're not called ear cleaners, Makenna. They're called Q-Tips.{Sierra feels the need to constantly correct Makenna, in case you didn't already gather}.

Kenners: Well, you use them to clean your ears, don't you? So, they're ear cleaners.

~~~~ I don't know. As I'm typing this, it doesn't really seem that funny, but I got a chuckle out of it last night. ~~~~

♥ Last weekend Kenners was still feeling a little under the weather due to surgery, so I was trying to comfort her by telling her she'd be good as new soon.

Me: Hopefully by Monday you will be feeling a LOT better.

Kenners: Already I feel 4% good. Maybe by tomorrow I'll be 2% better.

Sweet girl. Always lookin' at the glass half full ;)


Whew! Anyone still reading? No? I don't blame ya.

I do run out of blog titles sometimes...that or I think my title is clever and no one else seems to get it:) I'll have to check out that site. Looks like a ton of good photography info! I can use all the help I can get:) I'm so glad to hear that Makenna is doing well after her surgery!

Jenny said...

I dream of blog titles.

Busy Bee Suz said...

Ear cleaners makes perfect sense to me.
Oh, the decisions of a new much much second guesssing. :)
Have fun!!!

Jessica said...

Is this your first house building? My husband and I have built 5 together in the last 8 years. (4 we lived in one was for for sale - we move every two years for profit)... anyway!

I know how you're feeling! If you have any crazy questions I'm full of non-useful advice!

Kelly @ Blessed Mommy, Blessed Wife said...

I love the ear cleaners story! Kids are so funny! Good luck with all of the decisions you are about to make for the house. What an exciting time for you guys! I'm glad to hear that Makenna's post-op visit went well and that she's on the road to being fully recovered. I'm sure that is a big relief to have behind you!

I run out of titles all the time, but lately I feel my constant title is "catching up," or something of that nature.

Maybe I'm the only one, but hearing 12 weeks until Christmas nearly makes me want to jump up and down...although that is hard right now. ;) It means I'll be holding a little bundle and not carrying her in my belly, and I can't wait!!

Becca said...

It's not only you...I've had a pretty blah blog time lately - it will come back to us soon!!


He & Me + 3 said...

I hope that she is feeling 100% better. Sweet thing. I so need to check into that CM I am so jealous. I really want to give it a try.
I am always searching for blog titles. :)

MomBrose said...

I've been so remiss in blogging and reading. Have you missed me?? :)
I love that 4% comment!! Are you guys working on percentages?! :) Such cuteness! And Sierra and Reagan are TWO peas in a pod :D

~~Mel~~ said...

Always still reading!!! Love that Kenners...she's sure got spunk!

Mindy said...

Just found you from my friend MomBrose and wanted to let you know I AM on Clickin' Moms and am also guilty of spending more time on there than I should. My blog is definitely in neglect, but it was fun to stop by and visit yours! I love you blog design also - it's the same one I used to have until my most recent update. :)
