Welcome to a day in my life. I can't guarantee that this will be an exciting read for anyone. My life is filled with all the mundane activities of a stay-at-home-mom just trying to raise her three sons to be the best men they can be.

For Today... Monday February 9th

Outside my window... I see grass! The snow is melting.

I am thinking... that purchasing the wii fit was a good thing.

From the scrapbook room... I'm going to be playing all week since John is away on business. I'm going to get everything out and make a big mess and not feel guilty about it.

I am thankful for... the opportunity to be able to stay home and raise my boys ... especially when they are in the teen years and need me more than ever.

From the kitchen... I've been very focused this week on making everything nutritional.

I am wearing... do I have to say it again? I'm wearing yoga pants and shirt.

I am reading... Escape. A book about a woman who escaped the Polygamist colony, the FLDS
I am hoping... Matthew to recieve a few offers on the colleges that he wants.

I am creating... a big mess ... or at least I will be shortly.

I am going ... to the doctor tomorrow to talk over some test results.

I am hearing... beautiful silence.

Around the house... I want to start painting the basement. We have three rooms and a bathroom downt there that I neglect in a big way.

One of my favorite things... is to play in a band with my husband and three boys. It's great to share that passion with them.
A few plans for the rest of the week... just the regular routine.

Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you...


  1. Barbara, first let me say I love your family photo in the header! You are so blessed!

    Thanks for coming by my blog. I see besides sharing a like for lipstick, we have scrapbooking in common. I tried to share one of my scrapbook pages in my blog, but I couldn't do it. I'm not technolocally gifted.

    Nice to meet you!

  2. You go girl!! Scrap the week away! I'm going to try to get some done myself today. Isn't it a beautiful day?

    I love to read your blog, BTW. Thanks for sharing.

  3. Your boys are beautiful -- nice masthead!

  4. Those "weeks" off are so much fun!

  5. That is so neat that you all play in a band together, Barbara!
    Have fun with your scrapbooking. :)

  6. Enjoy the silence while you can Barb.
    It nice to be able to spread out while you scrapbook, a creative mess helps the process, right?
