Just here.


Somedays I get online and think...I should post something. But what? I don't have any pictures to show or stories to tell. We're...Just Here. Living as everyday. I do laundry, pick up after kids, cook meals, practice the piano, email, read blogs, get dressed, take showers, eat, run errands...live.

Friday was another fun day of snowboarding. We actually made it up the lifts this time. I ran into A once then decided to keep an empty lift between his and Brady's chair and mine. One boy in our group broke his collar bone and 3 girls sprained their wrists. Including a girl K was boarding with. I was so glad when I saw her on a snowmobile in perfect condition. She jumped off and said, 'Jessie hurt her wrist.' I was so glad is wasn't K. I do wish it would snow! It's all ice up there and it's not fun when you fall.

Saturday Brandon took the two little ones to the park to play. He coached the YM basketball team...only 2 boys showed up so they scrimmaged. He likes it a lot better that way. K had a friend come over to play and I cleaned house and folded laundry.

Sunday started off with early morning mtgs. I went into YW for the 3rd hour. I am in charge of 'Transitioning YW into RS'...and if any of you YW leaders have any good ideas of what works in your ward, I could really use some. There were only 2 YW this week and a brand new presidency. I felt out of place. It will get better with time.

Monday Brandon went golfing with Wayne at noon and the kids and I just hung around the house all day. We got a bid for our fence that fell down right before Christmas from our wind storm. For FHE we took the kids into Carson to Borders so they could use their gift cards they got from Christmas (thanks for the idea, Lisa). A got an Indiana Jones book, M got a book about night animals, and F got a Star Wars book. They had a hard time finding books for only $6.00. I might have to increase the amount next year. But they enjoyed picking out their own books. Then we used our Papa Murphy's gift certificates for dinner (thanks to Melissa, Roman, Tatiana, and Asher). We got 2 large pepperoni pizzas, cheese bread, and cookie dough. Yummy! So activity and dinner were FREE! Oh what fun.

Tuesday I learned how to imput VT stats into the computer at church. Thanks, Shana. Bought ink for my printer...why are they always so expensive? Shopped for K's birthday coming up and passed up some great sales on shirts at Old Navy. Brandon would be so proud of me. I walked around the store with 4 in my hand...then after finding nothing but jeans for K...I put my shirts back on the rack. Kind of depressing.

And today...preschool for F and I went off to volunteer at the elementary school. The copy machine was Out of Order and so there was very little I could do. Finally I just left and played Mrs. Pacman on my phone while I waited for preschool to end. I cleaned my room, made my bed, picked up around the house, and made dinner. I practiced piano and watch a DVD that K made for Brandon and me for Christmas. She's so creative. Loved the DVD. Thanks, K. I have a RS mtg tonight, cub scouts for A, and then it's back home for bed. Unless Knight Rider is on.

So nothing fun or exciting to report. We're just here.

Isn't that life, though? Busy busy and kind of boring! JK. Your dark hair looks AWESOME BTW!

Love it! And in 5 years this will be the post you are so grateful that you did. Awesome. And yes, so love the hair. Mine is in serious need of something. I agree with you about just life. I guess "living" in my car running kids from here to there is already starting. And I need to get more crock pot recipes, becasue who can cook when you are always in the car. You are one busy Mom!

These are some of my favorite posts! To think you kids will look back and wonder - what did we do everyday - now they know. Good Journalling and even though it might sound like nothing - you actually did a lot!

I get in the same rut, not knowing what to blog about. I just might have to take your idea for a post sometime.

When you think that you're a blog slacker and that you don't do much, just remember me and I'm sure you'll feel much better about yourself....glad I could help. :)

Fun to hear all the details, Staci. Glad your outing to Borders was fun. My kids have a hard time find books under $6 too... especially Ryan who always offers to do jobs to get the more expensive book. Life is good.
