Lots of Updates! Stuck Between Braces and Potty Training

I've been continuing to get lots of things done.  My favorite thing lately that keeps me from blogging is reading "Game of Thrones".  I'm on the second book now.  Yes, I am a dork, LOL!  It really does take a lot of thought to read.

Tomorrow Phoebe gets the top half of her braces in the morning!  She's so excited.  Of course she wants every color of the rainbow (and then some!) in her mouth, but I'm talking her down to two colors.  One on top and the other on the bottom.

Hope everyone else is doing well.  I'll be going…

Today was a very busy day, but I think I was making up for being so lazy the rest of the weekend.  I'm cleaning the house very well as I will be having people over Friday night for a Tastefully Simple party.  I'm getting things as clean as possible and that feels pretty good.  I got the laundry done too as that was getting backed up.  Now things are looking much better.  Tom hung up a bunch of paintings and cleaned out the grill.  We had a mouse build a nest in the grill for herself.  There were no babies in it, but she had a nice cozy space for herself.  Sorry to tell her, but she had to move out.

The boys are back from their grandparents again, but they were very cranky today.  I'…
