Pennsylvania's Cleanest House Award!

I think I deserve to win the Pennsylvania Cleanest House Award! (if only there was such a thing!) ;) We've had so many showings on our house in the past 6-1/2 weeks! As of today, I believe we've had 23 showings and we have 5 more scheduled before Monday morning! That's 28 showings in 7 weeks! Something tells me that's not normal! LOL! The amazing thing is - nobody is interested! (that's almost embarrassing!) But we've had some really nice comments about the house, so I don't think it's not desirable - it's always either too small, too close to the road, wrong layout or just plain not what the buyer wants!

It's easy to get frustrated, but we're trying to remember that the Lord is in control and we've put it in His hands, so He has a reason for it! We're really praying that He allows someone to put an offer on the house within the next week. That would just be such a wonderful answer to prayer!

So please pray for our house to go under …


Project 365 is in the house! Whoo-hoo! I'm so excited!!! Of course, as soon as I got it and opened it up, my baby started to cry & wanted to be fed, so I've got no farther with it than taking it out of the box - but I love it already! :) You can see, my son tried to "help" me unpack the box. LOL! I can't wait to go dig into it & start putting it together! Thank you, Becky!!! ;)

Since this is an early birthday present from my husband and the boys, I'll have to say "Thank you all so much! I love you!" and "Happy Birthday to me!" LOL! :)

Also, thanks to my dear husband for taking these pictures! I've taught him well! LOL!

Almost here!

My Project 365 is on it's way! Whoo-hoo! :) I tracked it today and it's in Harrisburg - about 2 hours from us! Aaah! I can hardly stand that it's so close and I can't have it until tomorrow! Ugh! I'm soooo excited about it & am really looking forward to putting it together. I know there will be days throughout this year that I'll wish I didn't have to work on it, but when Jan. 1, 2010 comes and I have it complete, I'll be thrilled that I have a year of our life pictorially documented, day-by-day! How cool is that?! I'm so thankful that my hubby is getting this for me for my birthday! (Thanks, Love!)

I know not everyone got (or wanted) Project 365 and some will have to wait until (and if) it is re-stocked. Don't let "negativity" about it being out of stock get you down! (see Becky's re-cap here if you don't know what I mean) If not having it by the first part of the year discourages you, remember what Becky said on her blog


I just discovered Wordle! So cool & super easy! Here is an example of something you can do...

Try it - it's really fun to play with!

Happy New Year!!! & Project 365

Wow, 2009! That seemed like an almost unachievable date when I was a kid! ;) And now it's here already and I'm married with 2 kids! What happened??!!!

We didn't have much of a New Year's celebration around here - my husband worked last night and came home at 11:30 p.m. I made sure that my older son had a nice long nap earlier in the day and so I let him stay up. We had a little party of our own with tater-tots, mozzarella sticks, pizza rolls and lil' smokies. It was fun, but probably not the best thing to eat just before going to bed - ugh! My son, being only 3 yr. old, didn't quite grasp the whole "new year" idea, but when we started saying "Happy New Year!", he joined in & got all excited about it too! LOL!
Happy New Year!!!

This morning...
Project 365 - have you heard of it? Check it out HERE...
I really wanted to get it!!! My husband said I could have it for my birthday (happy birthday to me!). I was online by 10:30 CST (8:30 MST) an…
