My Husband "Subvet" says that when our first son "Sonshine" was born the sun rose on our world, when our second son "Gator" was born the sun laughed and when our daughter "Sugars" was born all the flowers bloomed. That says it all.

It's Tuesday!

Have you given your guesses for our Thesaurus Thursday game yet? if not scroll down a post or two and have at it!!

I need some goals. I don't feel like I'm getting much accomplished here lately.

What I have done (that I can remember):

I went to the JoAnn's waaaaaay across 3 towns and bought baby flannel and quilt marking pens. I'd been at a standstill in trying to get my quilt marked due to all my pens running out of ink. And the ones I use aren't carried by Walmart...Target...Michael's....or the quilt store in the next town over. So I made a trek out to JoAnn's. While I was there I remembered that Sherry is pregnant and I'm all out of babyblankie stuff. So I got enough for 4 blankies to have on hand when the next person decides to procreate!

While I was at Michaels in search of pens I came across a couple things that I just HAD to get for Stephanie!! ..... I'll be putting them in the mail this weekend.

I sat this morning and marked my quilt for awhile. I now have 1/2 of it marked....and FIVE brand new pens to use.

Another thing I have done is to join in Jacquie's latest challenge!

This is a challenge to get moving! A group of us are joining together and logging miles walked,run,cycled or whatever. Till we gain enough miles to "walk across America." There's a fun sewing incentive too! That plus lots of mutual support and encouragement. If you're interested in learning more, click on the picture!

And Jacquie, the reason I have no miles logged yet is that the headlights went out on our van....which means I can't go to the gym till they're fixed on Monday. Look for my miles to show next week.

That's about all I can remember that I've accomplished.

So, goals for this week:
a) get money order and passport photo and fingerprints ready to send for La license.
b) mark rest of quilt
c) make baby blanket
d) mail stuff to Steph
e) complete and post 3 favorite prayers meme that Lisa tagged me for
f) complete and post 5 favorite devotions meme that Sherry tagged me for.
g) edit and post the Absolutely Awesome pictures my brand new camera took at the water park last week.
h) survive my stress echo tomorrow morning....for some reason running on a treadmill immediately after working for 12 hours is NOT appealing...but rather appalling
i) enroll my middle child in KINDERGARTEN!!!!
j) take the kids to the Dallas Aquarium!!
