Okay so heres the story...

About a week ago I saw this kid behind our house, walking along the orange groves sucking on a cigarette and sporting a bb gun. I pulled out my camera and took a few pictures of the punk just in case anything were to go down. I figured he was just out wanting to shoot some rabbits or something. So I call the sherriffs just to let them know this kid could be up to no good. End story so I thought. Well the very next day around the same time I saw the damn kid again walking along the orange groves sporting the same gun and sucking on a fresh cigarette. I figure oh well hes pretty harmless. BAhaaahaa I was sure wrong. Now we are 5 day later (yesterday the 27th) the kids and I were upstairs playing legos from 4-430 and we decided we were done and went downstairs. From about 445-510 I gave Sage a bottle and played a game of Old Maid. There were plans to go try out the new restaraunt Jungle Buffett with my brothers family and my sisters family at 530. So I head upstairs to brush my hair and hear some noise on the window...sorta sounded like hard rain patters...and saw a refletion on the mirror that looked like rain drops...I thought to myself..."No way is it raining today" {{confused}} I turn around to look and realized it wasnt rain after was a busted window. Right when I noticed it my brother called me to Im assuming to say he was headed over to the restaraunt....I told him what I just noticed and said a few naughty words (sorry Jaron). I was sooo mad. I made a call to the sherriffs office and they got someone out to my house in 20 minutes. The sherriff took some pictures and then he got a call and said he would be back. Well he got back around 715ish and finished taking the report and I gave his some pictures of the punk kid. So my task on hand now is to stalk down this kid and find out where he lives so I can give his address to that sherriff. And the other task at hand is to find someone to replace my window. GAAA To top it off my Chi broke, I need a new bra and my cell battery has lost its juice and I need a new one. When it rains it pours...not to mention all these things cost $$$. Blah blah blah

This is what Ive been doing lately

I decided to clean up a few closets and here was my first one I did.
I call this my well umm...Hall Closet...and I keep all my hair stuff and lotions and cleaners in here.
It was a big mess and I had just got an great deal on Suave shampoo and conditioner so NEEDED to clean it up. (I cant just shove 22 bottles anywhere)
Now I have a total of 79 bottles of shampoo & conditioner.
I also have in there
30 deoderants
20 bottles of lotion
32 kids soap/shampoo
and much more....

Okay so I have been a bit of a clumbs lately and here is 2 of my injuries.
I was riding the kids scooter with Weston on the back and we hit a bump and tipped over.
I got a nice gash on the ball of my foot (this picture was taken 4 days later) and a scrape on the top of the other foot...and bruises galore.

We won tickets to the Phoenix Suns game against the Timberwolves.
I was sooo excited because I had never been to a professional sports game ever.
Unfortunately the Suns lost by 2 but none the less we had so much fun.

When we were leaving we saw an old couple having trouble with their practically new Cadillac car so we stopped to give them a jump.

My Pantry

This was our project while Tony was off for the holidays!

Well since we were already painting our bathroom (Tonys idea)
I figure we should paint out pantry while we have all our painting stuff out.
This turned into a 4 day project. I couldnt use my kitchen, stove or anything.
(I didnt mind though because that meant that I didnt have to cook)

I have a huge stock of food thanks to Couponsense
Anyways we did one side at a time. We painted the back wall a dark brownish color and then the rest a creamy white color.

I love how it turned out...its all organized
(all labels facing forward and in categories..a little OCD? I know. I cant help it)

I now have more in hand
