My Drag Son

We’ve had to shuffle a bunch of stuff around, during our ceiling re-texture, and an old wig from my club days surfaced. I used to love to compete with the drag queens, and see how hot I could look in my couture get-up. Jason came out wearing it, and scared Xander to tears. Isaac was a good sport and let me snap some photos. He sure does look like his mama, when you throw on some long hair! Ha ha.

This thing is itchy on my head! And, we’re done.

Something About Summer…

…That motivates me to get projects completed. I’ve finally gotten serious about losing the last of my “post-partum” weight, and am down to the last 15 pounds. Remember, I gained a whopping 80 pounds (zoiks!). It feels great to be back into a lot of my skinny clothes.

As much as I hated the wheat germ and tofu lifestyle that was forced on me as a child, a renewed interest has ignited. I’ve picked up the book:

Its about the “fourteen foods that will change your life.” Lowering health risks, providing energy, etc. By the way, the fourteen foods are:

Beans, blueberries, broccoli, oats, oranges, pumpkin, salmon, soy, spinach, tea (green or black), tomatoes, turkey, walnuts, and yogurt.

I really love most of these foods, but now I will be more vigilant about incorporating them into my daily intake. The kids and hubby are loving the blueberry, soy smoothies too. :)

Summer has motivated us to finish all of the other ignored projects around the house (see my last post for a list!). John Moe is doing an awesome job patching up our soon-to-be-beautiful new ceilings, and Jason will be replacing the last of the interior doors.

We are looking forward to Casey and Aundi’s wedding in a couple weeks. Isaac will serve as ringbearer for the second time in his little life. At four years old he should do a pretty good job, I think.

We are still wondering how to enjoy the ceremony without Xander screaming his head off. He’s good at making his presence known in a quiet moment.

So Many Projects So little Time

Our home has become a trail of unfinished projects. If you read Royal Dad’s latest entry, you’ll see that we have started another home improvement: the patio-that-will-soon-be-a-deck project.

Hopefully it won’t get added to the list of things to finish:

1. Popcorn Ceiling removal, with one room left and ALL rooms with bare drywall for a ceiling.
2. Replacing all the interior doors, half completed.
3. the VW Bug in the garage, waiting completion.
4. The HUGE pile of bark on our driveway, waiting to be spread.
5. The kitchen floor, where all the baseboard has been pulled but that’s about it. :)

Our intentions are greater than two small children and jobs will allow, me thinks.

How did this room get so messy????? Too many toys, and only one bin to throw them all…

We had a lovely hike on Saturday, and finished with a stroll through the Rose Garden…

I’m hoping to have a lot of outings this summer. Isaac’s been asking to go camping for the last three weeks. Soon, little man.
