I Only Had A Few Things On My Schedule For Today


I woke up this morning with a large list of to dos, but knew I would only really accomplish a few.

I have never really needed to complete a whole to do list to feel like I have accomplished something.

I do however need at least 3/4 of the list gone.

Just sayin…

What I completed went as followed.

  1. Workout.  Which I did, and sweated my butt off.
  2. Cash check.  It was my husbands reimbursement from work.
  3. Hair cut.  I used said cash for my haircut, and you can see the results on my homepage.
  4. Laundry.  With three daughters this is never ending.
  5. Clean and mop kitchen.

All of the above have been completed.

I still need to…

  1. Clean master bath.
  2. Put away laundry.
  3. Clean out van.

I will add them to tomorrows list.

Have a happy day!

Lipstick, Headphones, Music, And A Pair Of Jeans


I am still trying to adjust to working full-time, but I have to say, I and my family were so ready for me to stop working every weekend.

My husband is even mentally planning weekends where we can just pack the kids up in the car and go somewhere for the night.

Things are a changing…..

I saw this quote today in a magazine, and it made me smile.

I bought a new chubby stick yesterday.

The brand is obviously Flower, and the color is Dewy Rose.

I have a confession to make.  I put my headphones back into their case after I work out.  I hate when things are loose in my purse.

It is so neat and organized.

For the life of me I cannot figure out why I cannot respect  my bathroom like I do my headphones.

It really needed to be cleaned like 2 weeks ago….

These might just be my favorite jeans ever!  They are so soft and fit like a glove.  A glove that is comfortable that you never want to take off.

I have said it once, and I will say it again.

This guy is awesome!

I will be seeing him in April at Billy Bobs.

Happy 39th birthday to me!

Happy Wednesday Kids!

It Was A Temperature Taking, Oil Rubbing, And Couch Sleeping Kind Of Day


0615 Thursday morning, and my blonde bomber comes walking into our room telling me she feels dizzy.  I feel her forehead, and she is on fire.   I put her into our bed next to her daddy and grabbed the thermometer.

101.8!

She was so sad when I told her she would not be going to school.  Yeah right!

The night before she had a headache, and now we had fever and nausea.

Worse case scenario, the flu had invaded the Kell house.

Oils, oils, oils…

Fluids, fluids, fluids…

One dose of ibuprofen…

Two hours later she was feeling great.  I almost thought she was faking.  So, I got her out of the house and we went to run some errands.

Poor thing just sitting on the couch watching Every Witch Way.

We took a break at Starbucks while I was getting my daughters phone battery replaced.

Going back to work full-time means having to constantly keep up with everyone’s schedules.

She had started to feel a little puny, so this was her way of telling me she was ready to go.

When we got home her temp rose to 103.7.  My poor sweet girl just looked at me with her big brown eyes and said “Momma I don’t feel good.”

More oils, more fluids, and more ibuprofen, and off to bed she went for the rest of the evening.

I quarantined her room, and the little bit slept with her daddy, while I crashed on the couch for any recon that needed to be done because I catch everything, so why not be in the thick of it.

Today we have a throat that feels “weird”, and a low grade fever.

So I am going with strep throat.

I will not be just using oils for this one.

Time for the big guns and a little visit with the MD.

Hope you Friday is germ free!

So I Pretty Much Lost My Shit!


Yesterday morning 0713 I a getting my girls ready for school, list written last night of my daily to dos, and my phone rings.  The words unknown caller appear, so I go about my routine at the time thinking to myself that they will leave a message if they need anything.  Problem was I got a sick feeling in my gut when the phone rang.

Yeah, it was work calling to see where I was.

Yep, all week long I thought the 28th was a Thursday, but low and behold it was a Wednesday.

Crying and freaking out occurred.

Crazy traffic, worrying about if the nanny had the correct date, disappointed that I had made this mistake.

You see, I have had a job since I was 14.  I have never been late, or forgot my schedule.  I am the poster child for reliable and dependable.

I set high standards for myself with my job.  I want to be an example.

So I lost my shit.

Today I have made 3 different copies of my schedule for the next 6 weeks.

Today my middle one is home with a fever.

I tend to have a hard time remembering that my need to plan is ridiculous, and not needed.

His plans will always take over.

Plus I got a day with my blonde bomber.

Even if she did not want to help me clean the living room.

Just A Glimpse


While many have frigid temperatures and snow, it is a beautiful 77 degrees here in North Texas.

Yep, the sun is out, there is a light breeze, and I am in heaven.  I have gotten a glimpse of the beautiful weather that is yet to come when Spring rolls around.  I can see all the bright colors.  It is my absolute favorite time of the year.

The girls and a friend are in the backyard putting the trampoline to good use, and I am playing on the computer listening to their laughter and squeals.

I find the sunshine motivating.  I want to clean, organize, create, and read.  It has even given me something to talk about on this here blog.

Seriously people, pure happiness is what sunshine is to me.  Just looking up and letting the sun shine on my face.  Happiness!

So, whatever the weather may be in your next of the woods, I hope you get a little glimpse of sunshine and look up.
