Boy, OH BOY, do I lead an exciting life! :-) My life for the past few weeks since puppy Abby came along has been one straight series of cleaning pee, poo and ants... I SWEAR that Southern California is sitting on an ant hill... everyone I know is dealing with the same ant war that we are currently waging... MAN, I HATE ANTS!!! At least, thank goodness, Abby is now sleeping through the night and we have only had 1 accident in the past 3 days! WOOO HOOOO!
These might not be the most exciting pictures, but now that our oldest, Jessica, is living out of state, I wanted to share some of the everyday things that are going on around here! In the past 2 weeks, we have started tearing out the landscaping in our arbor area... which was overgrown over the concrete and about 5 feet tall... we have to replace the fence, shorten up the arbor area, build a new overhang, replace the concrete pad, build a new patio... and that is just on THIS side of the yard... we also cut a TON off the pepper tree (we love that tree!) and are clearing the back corner of the yard for the playhouse Jeff is going to build for Anna... and we have to get this all done before we host the Varsity Football team dinner in October... LORD HELP US!!!There are a few pics of the BEAUTIFUL (and historic) INN AT RANCHO SANTA FE... I kidnapped Jeff for our anniversary and took him to this resort for the night. THANK YOU KYLE for staying with the kids and the puppy and living in the Land of Pee and Poo and Ants... those 24 hours just about killed you, I know! ;-)
Also... a few pics of cute Abby... YES, she sleeps with her tongue sticking out... she also snores... :-) I also crashed again on the bike... SERIOUSLY... those DARN CLIP BIKE SHOES! We did a 14 mile ride on Saturday and a 20 mile ride (crash day) on Sunday... boy was Chris impressed that I wasn't crying when I came into the house, arm dripping blood, covered in dirt and said, "WOOOO HOOOO!!! I'M AN OFFICIAL CYCLIST! I HAVE ROAD RASH!!!" I know... I told you... I lead one heck of an EXCITING life! :-)... ( and I wouldn't change a thing!!!) :-)Chris starts school 2 weeks from today... Anna starts Kindergarten 4 weeks from today... where in the HECK DID SUMMER GO!? I don't know, but here we go again!!! Make it a GREAT week!!!
