Jayna, this is for you!!!

I have no idea what Grace does while she sleeps, but here is what her hair looked like this morning! Can anyone explain this???
( Jayna, I laughed when I watched the video of your girls, because it's the same thing over here! CRAZY HAIR!!!)

Cat poop at 7:45 AM

***Beware, serious rant post***

If you know me at all, you know there are a few things I CANNOT handle in life. The one I'm speaking of today is cats! I'm sorry if you are a fan, but I am DEFINATLY not- one reason is for the past 3 1/2 years the nieghborhood cats have used my front yard, side yard, 2 spots near my front door, my 2 garden boxes, the back yard, gravel in the front yard and gravel in the back yard TO POOP EVERYWHERE!!!!!! They are terrible! And I am beyond angry & frustrated!!!! They have ruined my garden and/or parts of it almost every year and it makes me SO sad. Their poop is endless & everywhere and it smells terrible and there is nothing worse than your kids stepping in cat poop while playing in the back yard! I don't have animals for a reason, yet I have scooped up, raked up, dug up & cleaned up more cat poop than I wish to comment on. Seriously, I'm getting an ulser over it! I am not a swearer. Honestly, I don't even think bad words in my head, but when I see fresh cat poop or have to deal with mounds of frozen poop- I want to scream bad words for the entire neighborhood to hear- so you know it's bad. With the slightly warmer weather lately, I have almost vomited every time I walked up to the front door because of the smell! Finally this morning I couldn't take it anymore, so at 7:45 AM, in my super hot red Bingo sweater and hotpink PJ bottoms, I went out and raked up a garbage bag full of dirt & poop. I think God will forgive me for thinking up 100 ways to kill the cats, don't you???
I didn't stop there, so I raked up another 4 bags of leaves too. Yes, I am the crazy neighborhood lady doing yard work at 8:00 in the morning!

Crazy weather...

What is going on with our weather lately? One minute it's snowing and the next the kids are riding their bikes outside! Hurry up Spring!!!

The heater vent...

There are a few places in the house that the kids fight over. They are:

Our bed.
The computer chair.
The bath tub.
The stool closet to the fridge.
...and the kitchen heater vent!
I swear I get at least 100 Marilyn Monroe flashbacks when the kids are standing there with their nightgowns flaring out and the hot air underneath them. Here's Grace in her favorite spot! ( I think if she actually wore winter jammies and not sleeveless silky ones, she would be fine, but that girl likes the least amount of clothes possible! )

Daisy & her friends...

Daisy has 2 friends, both named Matti (& Maddie). She was able to play with both of them last week and had lots of fun!***Yes, Daisy is teaching Matti how to meditate!
