Can't take the dog hair anymore!

I am about to go insane with the dog hair. I try to vacuum every other day but lately, I need to everyday. It's awful. Can I shave my dog? Should I shave him? Does anyone want a Golden Retriever? Seriously, its awful. He can be laying on the wood floor, get up, come over to the rug and scratch or shake. The hair would fly everywhere. Come on, is the hard wood not good enough for you?! I think he is doing that to spite me! One word: UGH!

We had one of the best days today, Nate and me. We stayed home all day. Played in the front room with Thomas,books,container of elbow macaroni, cars, and yes, a movie. I had the want to watch "The Christmas Story". I know, I'm weird! Nate cuddled thru quite a bit of the movie. He got to have nekkie time too! After I took off his nite time diaper, he got this look of pure joy that he was naked. He ran around so happy.

Had a lunch with daddy here at the house. Played some more. I worked in the office cleaning things up.

I was perusing the cloth diaper boards yesterday and today. Thought I would share a link to an ebay listing. It is very funny and I have the ladies blog book marked. You need to check it out!

Another thing I have been reading on the cloth diaper boards are the recalls from China. Now, I have gotten rid of alot of Nate's toys in the past 2 weeks. Not because of the recalls, because we have too many toys and his birthday is coming up. If I had money, I would buy him a few wood toys. I have some great web sites of people who make wood toys. Don't know if I want to touch that issue with a 10ft pole! Alot of women on the boards are getting quite upset over it all.

I noticed that my laundry room was getting cluttered with tubs of Nates stuff so I went to home depot and bought some new shelves. Alas, the tubs dont fit! So, I started putting the Christmas decorations on the shelves and will put the tubs on the shelves the Christmas stuff was on. The previous owner made some shelves and they will work just fine for the tubs.

The 12th of September, Nate's birthday, we are heading out to Indiana for a few days. We as a family haven't taken some time for ourselves in a long while so we decided to get away for a long weekend. There is a train museum in French Lick Indiana that we want to see. Nate is really into Thomas right now. In fact, we found a train table and tracks and accessories on craigslist and decided to buy it. Can't wait to see Nate's eyes when he sees that when he wakes up on his birthday!

Well, Jason is home and I need to work on things for supper.

Found the pic

I finally found the picture that I wanted to add the last time I posted. Jason said that he hadn't uploaded to livedigital. So here it is. Nate looks so cute munching on his first ear of corn!

Hosted by!

I didn't get around to getting any new pictures, but tonight Jason was able to get some. Since all this heat this week, we haven't been outside. There was a big storm that passed just north of us and we ended up with some good wind that cooled things off. So, we sat outside for a while tonight and Jason was able to snap some pics!

This weekend we are heading up to my folks for my dad's birthday and our nephew, Nolans birthday. We are staying over night and coming home on Sunday.

Nothing else is happening lately. Kinda boring around here.
I will have to post another time when things get exciting.

I've lost my purse...

No, I haven't really lost my purse. It is the title of a poem and when I find the poem, I will share with you. On Friday, 2 friends and I went to tea at The St Louis Tea Room for one friends birthday. The ladies there read poems aloud while you eat. We only heard 2 poems and one was titled "I've Lost My Purse". At least I think thats what the lady said. I did email the tea room and ask for the author so I could find it online. It was a funny poem about a mother needing to pay a bill and couldn't find her pocketbook. This took place I would think in the 40's or 50's. Very cute poem and I hope I find it!

I had my first Diaper Class here at the house on Saturday. Only 3 people came. One person already cloth diapers. I didn't sell anything. I have 2 feelings about the day. 1: Sad because only 3 people showed and didn't sell anything, and 2: Happy because the people that were there are good friends and I trust them with critiquing my presentation. Now that my first class is done, and as I look back on that time, I know what I can do different. As I figure things out, I might share with you. I guess I am a bit embarrassed about my recent presentation. It didn't go as smooth as I had hoped. I think I need to have info on paper for people to look at as I am talking. I can use that as a cheat sheet too. Like I said, I may post more when I figure out what I want to do different.

I haven't shared any pics lately of us even tho Jason has on his blog. I would like to find some to share, or take some more and share then. My favorite lately is of Nate eating corn on the cob for the first time. I will try and find the pic. Well, livedigital is having a tough time loading and I don't want to wait around. I will have to post pics of Nate here another time.

Guess thats all for now.
