Its a NERF WAR...

What happens when you get four 11 and 12 year old boys together?
I'll tell you...
The upstairs of my house sounds like a WAR ZONE and the ceiling is going to cave in from them running and jumping around. The screaming, laughing and yelling can be heard for miles. The NERF bullets are flying down the stairs. There are bullets EVERYWHERE upstairs. I open my linen closet to put laundry away and find a boy hiding. I open the boys walk in closet to put clothes away and find a boy hiding in it. I go to put towels in the bathroom and well, you guessed it, I find a boy hiding in it! There seems to be boys hiding everywhere and really there are only 5 boys at this house right I said four 11 and 12 year olds and one 8 year old! Boys are coming out of the walls!!!
BEWARE when you walk upstairs you might get caught in the cross fire! Every time I walk up I say...Cease Fire! Neutral Person coming! Don't shoot the mom! If you shoot me...there will be NO FOOD FOR THE MEN! And they all STOP FIRING! Do I know the way to a kids heart or what! FOOD!!!
But it can be hard for one kid to balance 3 different types of friends. Josh is having to learn young to keep his patience and learn that you have to keep everyone happy when you invite others to your house and that sometimes it's harder than you think. Everyone is different and sometimes Josh really finds it hard when some of his friends get together. But you know everyone has to deal with it in life. He's finding it harder then he thought it would be to keep his cool with some of his friends. But he will learn! It's just the way of life...or how does the song's "THE CIRCLE OF LIFE"!
But they are having fun, MOST of the time! I just hope my house can stand up to all the craziness that's going on upstairs. I'm kind of worried that after today, I wont have a two story house any more, I might have a one story! Scary! BUT I really like my TWO STORY HOUSE! I think I will miss it! Oh well, no more having to carry the vacuum up and down the stairs once the upstairs in my down stairs!

It's happening...

It really is. They said it would. We just had to do it! And we finally did! I just can't believe it! It's soooo cooool!
Oh~What? ask? Our garden...IT'S GROWING! It's so cool! No~Really it is!

From our window we can see that our tomato plants and bell pepers have already grown quite a few inches, so I decided to go out with DJ and as we look, I could see my beets, my cucumbers, my pumpkin, my artichoke, my lettuce (I think you get the idea, everything), growing. They was something sprouting out of the ground and guess what? It wasn't weeds. Thats right it was FOOD from my garden.

Then last night I looked out my kitchen window and you know what? Yep, I can now see the lettuce from my window. Its grown that much. Everything is growing. (Cayla had a good laugh at me cuz of my reaction.)

In case you can't tell, I'm a little excited about our garden.

Of course the flowers we planted are growing like crazy, along with my grass (which needs to be mowed again)! Everything has new growth on it! All the colors are so pretty! Pretty~pretty~pretty!

But how cool that our garden is already growing. Just so you don't think I'm strange, my kidos were all excited about it too!

...To plant a garden...SO that's what we did!

Saturday, DJ, the boys and I spent all day working on the back yard. I wasn't really sure it was going to happen cuz DJ was suppose to have Military Duty, but it got cancelled...WHOO WHO!

We ran to Home Depot and Lowels and then to Lowels again...Can I just say I really don't like's a girly store and Home Depot is a real mans store. Lowels couldn't help DJ with some things he needed last week so thats why we ended up a Home Depot and YES they were able to help (I just LOVE Home Depot). But I do have to give Lowels a little credit...which again confirms its a girly store...they had a much better flower selection then Home Depot.

Anywho, while DJ fixed a pipe, the boys and I had the fun task...pulling weeds, picking up dog poo (not ME, thats one of the boys jobs that of course they've been slacking on. Who would of thought that one little old dog could make SO MUCH Poop!), and mowing and weed eating the backyard. Which while I was mowing, the lawnmower DIED!! (I killed the pore lawn mower while DJ was making yet another run to Lowels, so I thought). It didn't blow a fuss it just stopped. DJ looked it over and well, a part got fried! (Good new...I didn't do just wore out from time). Which meant a run to checker for the part!! But DJ fixed it cuz he's the man but I MOWED the lawn CUZ I'm the WO-MAN!

Our next task was adding in planting compost to all our dirt. Again I had the fun task of doing that while DJ was putting in new tubing where we wanted to plant flowers and veggies! Can I just say my arms are killing me. Great work out I guess!
Now, after all the hard work, we have pretty flowers planted and my herb garden is in along, with 3 different kinds of squash, pumpkin, watermelon, beets, carrots, lettuce, cucumbers, broccoli, LOTS of peppers, and LOTS of tomato's, plus a couple of other things, that I just can't remember off the top of my head. We still have a few things to do on Monday but in a few months all our hard work will be worth it...and can I just say my back yard is SOOOO green! Now for the WEEDS in the front yard! (I just know I'm going to get a notice from the HOA...but this Saturday is the day for pulling the weeds in the front yard, I promise!)

OOPS...I did it again...

What did I do again...well, I'll tell you....(and it wasn't singing a Britney Spears song either).

If I thought it was embarrassing the first time (ok, maybe it wasn't the first time it happened), then I was WRONG! This time has the last time beaten hands down!

Remember awhile back I wrote about my little passing out adventures I had at the school...NO, I didn't pass out at school again...NOP, this time I passed out at my home (which I've done before)...NO BIGGY right~WRONG!

The door bell rang, so I got up and walked over to the door, it was our bug man. As we were talking, I got that feeling again, yep that feeling that everything is closing in and starting to black out. I know what that means, so I start to sit down...WELL, I guess I didn't make it.

The next thing I know, the bug guy is asking if I'm ok and Josh had a phone in his hand. I guess I passed out and the bug guy asked if any one was in the house. Josh came around the corner and saw me passed out and ran and got the phone and called 911. However, I started to come to, so he hung up the phone.

Of course a few minutes later 911 called back to make sure everything was ok. I explained the situation and thought that was the end of it. NOP, I was wrong.

The bug guy made sure I was ok, and started to spray outside. About 5 minutes later the door bell rings again. This time it was the POLICE! YEP THE COPS!

Because I had told them I was ok, they sent officers to make sure someone didn't force me to say that. So the officers asked if I was ok, who was in my home and if I felt I needed to go to the hospital. Then they had to do a walk through the house, just to make sure someone wasn't forcing me to say I was fine. Of course TODAY the boys and I were going to clean the house and it was a mess. I guess that will teach me to make sure the house is ALWAYS clean.

A few hours later, the bug guy called me to make sure I was still doing ok. WOW, passing out was bad enough but doing it in front of a stranger and then having the cops come to my home...Ya that was really embarrassing. At least when I did it at the school last year I was around people I knew...oh well life goes on!

THE COPS and the BUG GUY...sounds like a movie title.
