It's ok, Tuesday.

So I stole borrowed this from another blog.  It's a way of just accepting some of life's not so pleasant moments.  I really like it.  So here goes.

It's ok,

-That I'm super excited and sad for this week's episode of the office.  It's the last episode with Michael, hence the sadness, but Will Ferrell will be on it, so there's the excitement.

It's ok,

-That I'm two days into mowing the lawn and I'm still not done.  Yes, we have that much lawn and no, I'm not mowing it all.  The fields we're leaving alone and getting it cut for hay later.  Oh and the reason it's taking so long- push mower.  This is the first place we've lived that we've needed a riding mower.  Guess what we're shopping for at the moment.

It's ok,

-In 6 years of marriage (almost 7), that this is the first time I've ever mowed our lawn.  I always thought it was a "male" chore and was happy not to be out in the sun.  But now, there is something very satisfying about mowing.  I like looking back and seeing progress, plus kids can't bother you. ;) lol

It's ok,

-I didn't get to buy chickens this weekend.  The baby chicks were so cute.  But because they carry salmonella they aren't recommended to be around small children.  So we have to wait five years before I can get my baby chicks (though I may talk to the girls' dr about this).  Boo!!

It's ok,

-That Megamind and Tangled are all my daughter talks about.  She told me probably a hundred times today that we needed to find Titan's house (bad guy from Megamind) so that we could "get" him.  She thinks she's a super hero.  Maybe I should make her a cape...

Rapunzel and Elizabeth swinging, before they went hunting for bad guys.

It's ok, 

-That I do a little walk dance when I finish a day of couch25k.  I look ridiculous, but I feel great.  This is mainly because I hate running and I know I'm done.  Extra points for not dying or puking on the side of the road.

It's ok,

-Most of the pictures I take now of the kids is on my phone.  I don't carry my camera around, I do carry my phone.  Plus I get pretty good pictures.  My only fear is that Evie (my youngest) will only have phone pictures.  That doesn't seem right or fair.  Like because I was the youngest of three there are fewer photos of me and almost none of me by myself.

Today's phone pic.

It's ok,

-That my husband now asks after events in our life "is this going to be on the blog?".  He told me it should be mostly about how awesome he is...after I stopped laughing, I told him of course he was awesome.  Awesomesauce!  Oh and check out the urban defition of that- awesomesauce - #2 had me rolling in the floor. ;)

I never watched the Office. We are almost 7 years married and I still haven't mowed the lawn. Funny what you will be willing to do to just have a few minutes where the kids cannot bother you huh? I know the feeling! Way to go on the running...and not puking! LOL Cute picture! :o) Most of the pictures of Annabelle are on our phones too. I still make myself take pictures with the real camera every once in a while though...LOL

i didn't know that about chickens. Chris does dumb stuff and says "don't put this on your blog." I take tons and tons of phone pictures - it's just easy.

I know of at least three families with young kids with chickens. I think it's a very small risk and it's something you have to chance. I say go for it!

I have to mow since Tom is gone. It's not as bad as I thought. Unless it's really hot out. Then I feel like I'm going to die.

The question is, does Mark's awesomesauce asplode into monster trucks? Because really, it should.
