One Hundred Hours In A Day and Buzz Lightyear

Do you ever wish you just had more time?

I have been running around like a chicken with its head cut off for what seems to be like and eternity.  I have been so tired yet I cannot sleep, so I have been taking these mini naps where I fall asleep next to the boys and wake up fifteen minutes later.

It all started with my preparations for the garage sale (which was a huge success and the hottest days know to mankind).  After cleaning out the house of all our unwanted stuff, I have gone full force with cleaning the house.  I ignored everything for about six weeks to get ready for the sale.  I am now stem cleaning carpets, painting a few walls, and making the place feel like home again rather than a tornado in the middle of Toys R Us  and a laundry mat.   Thankfully I cleaned out every cabinet and closet which makes this task a little easier.

I have been so lost with all the chores that I almost forgot to come here for a visit and tell you all that I am still alive.  But we all know, that when you are in that cleaning groove, it is best to leave it undisturbed and take full advantage of it!

I have been enjoying the Summer to its fullest though, which makes my time here scarce because of it.  I love the outdoors, and my gardening and fun with the boys.  So far, I have made 10 jars of strawberry jam with the 11lbs of strawberries we picked, last weekend I went raspberry picking and made 5 jars of raspberry jam (will be going back for more!).  This past Sunday my husband and I and the boys went early morning peach picking and had the entire orchard to ourselves, which yielded 4 quarts of canned peaches, and 8 jars of peach jam.  This weekend I will be heading out for blueberries (I am on a fruit kick).  We have been enjoying fresh tomatoes and cucumbers from the garden, and it has just been a total blast, getting away from the mundane things.

What can I say?  I have discovered that I am definitely a country bumpkin and I love the time with my boys!

Now I am off to plan their Birthday party (they have requested a Buzz Lightyear cake), pictures to come!  To Infinity and BEYONNNNNNNNNNNNNDDD people!
