Home again, home again, jigity-jig!

I told my husband that I really wanted to take a family vacation this year about a month or so ago.

I got a text message from my oldest sister that her 2nd kiddo is getting baptized on May 4th. (Good reason to go home, no?)

Autumn is getting to the point where she's growing out of her 18 month sized clothes and I need to update her wardrobe (we have about 8 items that are 24 month sized).


I texted my oldest sister and asked if her youngest daughter had grown out of the 24 month and 2T sized clothes that she had.
She confirmed that she has and asked if I needed them for Autumn.
I heartily confirmed.

And now...

We're all taking a trip home to Colorado!

We'll be driving on May 1st, and back again on either May 6th or 7th.
We're going to drive the entire way there in one trip, and depending on how that goes will decide if we want to do a 2-day trip coming back, or just drive it straight back as well.

We are all going to stay at my in-law's house, and we'll be going to Cassidy's baptism on the 4th... but beyond that we don't have anything planned!

Let me know if you want to see me/us!

Of course, the one person that I will be trying to set aside specific time for is Autumn's God Mother, Allison.

I'm super excited to be taking a trip home! :)

Family time in the non-winter months is always so much more fun for me!
(Now lets just hope it doesn't snow while we're there... unpredictable Colorado weather...)

An anonymous troll

I I have someone reading my blog and commenting anonymously.

I can track what they've been viewing (I have my ways) and when. And, of course, their comments are moderated by me before being published (I'll continue to delete the comments that are unfit to be read by my friends and family).

I'm just irked that someone would even waste their time commenting in a troll like manner.

C'est la vie I guess.

It's not even worth my time to hunt down the culprit. (Although I'm more than convinced that I could. Again, I have my ways.)

Don't even bother with the chaff when all that matters is the wheat.

You're forgiven. I hope the hole you have inside yourself that you feel needs to be filed with making others miserable can be sewn shut and healed.
I honestly feel sorry for you.

Cleaning schedule

I follow a few blogs (of friends and a couple others that I have found through friends).

It always seems that when my mind has an idea of something to do self-improvement wise my friend Heather over at "Want What You Have" seems to blog about that very topic at the same time.

Recently I've been trying to set a routine house cleaning/organizing schedule to help keep my little duplex orderly and to make things MUCH EASIER when we do decide to move away.
Staying on top of things and having a clean house really lightens my mood and relieves a lot of my depression symptoms.

Because I still haven't figured out what kind of system is going to work for me, but have been inspired by Heather's schedule, I am going to share it with you.

This woman shares so many great ideas! I am so lucky to have found her blog a couple of years ago!
