Busy Bees and Other Stuff

We have been busy, busy, busy. Emily has volleyball practice, tournaments, and regionals in Des Moines coming up. She also has quiz bowl, and track practice starts today.

Matt and I went to Galena this past weekend sans kids. It was nice to get a full nights sleep for the first time in quite awhile. Ava and Emily had a great time at their grandparents.

We also are taking a trip to Dauphin Island, AL soon.  We rented a home right on the coast. The waves wash up under the house at high tide. I am still trying to convince Matt that he doesn't need to wear a life jacket to bed.

I have lost almost 15 pounds in the last month. YEE HAW!!!

Emily got straight A's for the third quarter in a row. Clearly she takes after me(not really, her brains are from Matt- just don't tell him I said that).

We got three messages on our answering machine from the Mitt Romney campaign this past weekend.  Awesome. Did they not see my Obama Mama bumper sticker?

Since I have drastically cut back on my wine drinking(wine is not great for weight loss) my Gnome(Vern) has picked up the slack. I found him passed out in the chicken coop this morning. No pictures, I wouldn't embarrass him like that.

We got a saw from Matt's dad to cut down more of the small obnoxious evergreens in our yard. Matt said I can't use the saw, I say whatever. Is it weird to want a chainsaw for your birthday? They just seem so versatile.

I am going to go take a nap with Ava, one of the many perks of being a stay-at-home mom.

Hello there! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using
for this site? I'm getting fed up of Wordpress because I've had
issues with hackers and I'm looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

Good day! Do you know if they make any plugins to help
with Search Engine Optimization? I'm trying to get my blog to rank for some targeted keywords but I'm not seeing very good
success. If you know of any please share. Thanks!

I don't know if it's just me or if perhaps everyone else encountering problems with your website.

It looks like some of the text on your posts are running off
the screen. Can somebody else please provide feedback and let me
know if this is happening to them as well? This may be a issue with my internet browser
because I've had this happen previously. Many thanks

I'm impressed, I must say. Seldom do I encounter a blog that's equally educative
and entertaining, and let me tell you, you've hit the nail on the head. The issue is something that not enough folks are speaking intelligently about. Now i'm very happy that I
came across this during my hunt for something concerning this.
