It's not like I have a lot of spare time, between 4 kids, homework, and daily life, there isn't a lot of time left over. But when there is a chance to slip away and just be "ME", here is what I like to do.
The first thing would be to play on my favorite Forums or check my favorite blogs. My favorite web sites would have to include, The Rebel Alliance (which is fixing to get a major overhaul), Army Wives Forums (a place where everyone is going through the same Army crap), and my two favorite blogs, Because I Said So (a mom of 6), and Being Five (a cute little comic strip).
The second thing on my list would be to read a good romance novel. I have two favorite authors. Nicholas Sparks and Richard Paul Evans. I've currently read all of Nicholas Sparks' books, even his recent one. I've read all of Richard Paul Evans books except for his last one, Grace. It is already out on shelves, I am just having a hard time finding it.
Next would be playing the Sims2. Oh what fun! I love building kewl new houses and playing a new or existing family. Making a Sim hold their bladder until they can't any longer and they pee their pants! Setting a house on fire and watching them scream and jump around! Make them fall in love, get married, and start their own little family, that is the best part. Yeah, it keeps me busy when I'm bored. I am really excited because the Sims3 is fixing to come out next year, on my mom's birthday of all days. Lucky mom, what a great Birthday Present!
So, what do you do in your spare time when you are good and bored?

Well if you count today and Halloween day, its a 9 day countdown. See, when you have kids, they sometimes try to make the countdown as short as possible. They like to cut off the actual day the event happens and the current day we are on. My kids are especially good at it. The kids have had a lot of things to countdown in the past year.
Anyway, not much going on today. Sitting around, watching my soaps at the moment. Typing on here during commercials. The boys are playing with their 50 million cars. Well gotta run, just wanted to post some kind of update.

First is the boys room. We have yet to put up the crib for Kris if your wondering why the playpen is up.
Then the girls room. The last picture is their shirt from school they wear on Fridays. I figured I'd throw that in there. ;)
Now lets see, lets do the living room next, then the dining room:
And lastly the bathrooms. First the kids bathroom, then mine:
We still have boxes and stuff everywhere. The house is a mess in my opinion. But in time we should get it all organized and everything will have a place. I'm looking forward to the Garage Sale to get rid of most of our stuff that is just taking up space.
I'm glad we chose to stay in a house on the East side of town. Chuck works with a guy who lives on the West side of town and his truck was broken into right outside his apartment. Scary! While I am on the subject of Chuck, he seems to really be getting along with his co-workers and settling in good so far. Which is awesome news compared to Germany. They are already talking about sending him to the promotion board! YAY!

I finished reading Nicholas Sparks new book last night. It was so good I couldn't put the dern thing down for hours at a time at night before bed time. It was about a marine who fell in love. Awww. I highly recommend the book to anyone who enjoys a good romance novel. "The Lucky One" by Nicholas Sparks. A must read! Next I want to read Richard Paul Evans new book. I believe its called "Grace".
The girls got to school on time, even though I felt like I was dragging this morning. CJ is sitting here telling me he needs a new daddy pillow and that I need to buy him one. And he claims he will not bite it and will keep it clean. Yeah right! Poor daddy pillows head is falling apart, even though we tried to sew him back.
Yesterday we were trying to organize the boxes in the garage. So with the garage door opened and a few boxes sitting in the driveway, I guess we looked to be having a garage sale even though there was not a sign in site advertising a garage sale. We had about 5 or 6 people pull up and ask if we were in fact having a yard sale. I responded to each and every one of them, "NO but come back in 2 weeks and we will!" So I got the word out without even putting an ad in the paper. lol If people will come with no signs, I'm sure tons will come when there is. We bought two brightly colored garage sale signs to put on each road near the house at the stoplights. If you sale, they will come. lol
My husband just called me. He had to go get a physical and had to get a few shots. They tested his hearing and he is nearly deaf in his left ear. I guess that lets him off the hook when says "HUH?" all the time and says he can't hear me. Being nearly deaf in one ear can make him non deployable though, so maybe something good will come out of him becoming deaf in one ear. Poor hubby.
Well I got to go. I have got to go load the dishwasher and start a load of clothes. What fun huh? I hope everyone has a great day!

Well Good Morning World! How's it going? Me and the boys are just hanging out in my room this morning. As you can see from the picture on the right, they are actually getting alone for a moment, while watching T.V. I never knew how much two boys could get into trouble until recently. They are constantly hurting each other and fighting. They tore the door off the entertainment center you see the T.V. sitting on yesterday. Chuck was non to happy about that, as he loved the ugly thing to death. Me on the other hand, I hate that entertainment center. lol So you won't find me upset about it. Wednesday we went to Wal-Mart and bought a computer desk. It was cheap and I liked it. So yesterday morning I put the thing together. Only took me about an hour and a half and of course the boys had to help. Yea that was fun! But I think it turned out great. Now I have somewhere for my laptop and homework folders and the printer as well. So far the boys haven't really messed with it. I keep waiting for them to pull all my folders down and tear all the pages out. lol Hopefully they won't.
Last night I dreamed about a white snake. How freaky is that? I hate snakes, so to actually dream about one was just bad. I wanted to see if my dream had any meaning at all, so I went to Sleeps.com. Here is what they had to say about a snake in your dream: "A snake, being the ages old symbol of evil or Satan, makes it a bad omen to have one show up in a dream. To see a lone snake and feel threatened by it shows that you have a bad enemy that is even then working against you, it also a warning against bodily harm from an enemy." Ugh! I hate snakes!!!
