EXTRA! EXTRA! Read all about it!

Time for the news!!

My husband and I have officialy swapped roles! Ok....don't go getting confused or any ideas.
I am now going to work full time as a deaf education interpreter for the local school district. He is the stay at home dad/ Mr. Mom. We are both excited about our new responsibilities.
On top of that I am also an Usborne book consultant and an Avon representative! Be watching for contests and prizes in the future on both of these! I am working on how to create buttons for both of these sites but for now...this post will have to suffice. If any one is so technologically adept, I would greatly appreciate help.
Thanks and happy browsing!
ok...the link is not working either, so for now here are the 2 links...

Jokes on me!

I think I was doing to much multi-tasking today. And this is why. I was out on the carport with the kids and we were doing a painting project together. I was also attempting, as mothers often do, to have a phone conversation while 'life just happens'. As I am talking the pretty pot that I was painting with them turns into something strange as my six year old son begins to blend the colors on the pot. Then little miss 1 1/2 year old gets a little paint brush and gets in on the action and dips it in the blue and walks about 3 feet with it! Yeah...dribble..dribble..dribble...
Well I was trying to talk to our church secretary and tell her I needed to drop something of that afternoon. I would drop it off right before 5 and then go pick up my husband from work.
You see...we only have one car..and what I forgot was that we were standing and painting and making a huge mess and I was talking on the phone...right were the car usually is! husband took the car to work today. How do you miss something like that?
We finished up our stuff and got cleaned up and I started dinner. I was watching the clock because we needed to leave a little earlier. So at about 4:40 I told the kids to go out in the van and I'll be right there...I just needed to wash my hands.
I didn't realize there was no car until I hear the kids saying, "very funny mom"..and coming back inside...oops...I guess the joke was on me!

Warm Fuzzies

I beleive I have found the source of warm fuzzies!
One recent cool fall morning. I was sitting in the big comfy chair in the livingroom. My 3rd child, who is 3 years old came in to snuggle with me in all her blond curly cuteness. As she cuddled into my lap she says..."Mommy, you're warm cause I love you". I believe that what she was meaning to say was...You're warm AND I love you. But I totally agree with what she said, it is so very true! I AM warm BECAUSE she loves me!

So where have you found warm fuzzies lately?
