baby girls #2 bday

Today is my baby girl #2's 8th birthday!  It's hard to believe that she's so old already!  Really that I am so old already!  We had her birthday party saturday at Build-a-Bear - the kids all had a blast and then she wanted a cookie cake - so I didn't even have to bake a cake!!  Thank you little one!  Of course we have 4 more summer bdays in the house, so I may be baking yet!  
Yesterday I did yard work ALL day!  The plan was to spread the 9 yards of mulch that are sitting on my driveway, BUT after all the hedges/bush trimming, weed pulling (we have been taken over by thistle!) and digging up grass for a new bed - as well as putting in the veggies in the garden and planting about 5 more plants.... NO MULCH WAS PUT DOWN!  And to top it all off, I could hardly move!  Hubby gave me some back and body excedrin to take - didn't touch the back or body aches!  My hands are killing me - sore, swollen and lots of little thistle cuts!  And I still have 9 yards of mulch to spread!  Trying to avoid it today my blogging and using little S's bday as an excuse, but I'm going to be gone for a week and a half and I know that hubby probably won't get to it, so I have 2 days to get it done OR ELSE!!!!  Of course I have to do laundry and pack too!  It's just me and the girls road-tripping again!  We always have a blast on the road as long as no one violates anyone else's personal space in the car!  Must get to library to check out books-on-cd and movies for the road!  Then off to blockbuster to get some new ones to keep us occupied!!  Wish me luck!!

Happy Birthday Sweetie!

I hope we can work out September's dates for our trip!

Time sure does fly, doesn't it?! And, I'm so blessed to have a hubby who is taking care of all of that outside work (which I'd actually like to do, but am too obsessed about trying to get the inside work done - the unpacking and reorganizing saga continues ...)
