4th what are your plans?

I Love Holiday Weekends!

We just found out today that hubby has off tomorrow PAID!
I was so excited he gets an extra day off.

Tomorrow we will be painting Shane's room. We moved into my grandma's house a few months back b/c it was getting very difficult to keep our house like a museum for showings and help my dad (who had a stroke 2 yrs ago) who lives here.

The only extra room was pink. Well its been a few months and no sale on the house yet and I'm getting sick of my son sleeping in a pink room so we are painting it tomorrow.
A. My son will have a non pink room
B. Great practice for our house in AZ since we will end up doing most of the painting

I am also very excited my cousin Beth is due anyday now. I get the honor of being at the hospital and capturing the first Professional pics of the lil one. They did not find out the sex so it will be a surprise. Check back as I will post the pics I take.

Speaking of B-days it is my Step-daughters 6th on Monday. She is growing up fast. I know I don't say much on here about her b/c the situation is touchy. Basically we love her to pieces but she was an attempt by her mother to trap my husband into marriage and then when that failed the mother used her as a pawn to try and get my husband to do what she wanted.

Her mother is "crazy" She is 30 and can't pass a drivers test, lives with some random guy who won't even marry her and she harasses us quite a bit. For our wedding my MIL had to get (my step-daughter) quietly or her mom would have not allowed her to stand up or be a part of it.

We see my step daughter when my MIL has her. It works out nice cause it spares us a lot of the extra Drama.

When My son was born she got in a crazy rage and called my husbands work 15 times. even after she was told he wasn't there by his boss (he was with me at the hospital) she continued to call. Then proceeded to leave threatening texts and voicemails on my phone. He was almost fired over it and the boss even wrote a note about it for the court to see. Speaking of notes she now has her friend leaving harassing comments and messages on my husbands Facebook. Along with having doctors send copay bills that we are NOT responsible for per court order. He has had to call the doctor directly and was told she was telling the office ladies to send the bills to my husband.

A real winner...It's actually sad! My poor step daughter has to grow up with that as an example.

Anyways enough ranting lol

We lowered the price of the house today. Hoping to see an offer.

So it looks as if we have a busy weekend ahead.
Painting, meeting out new cousin, visiting some friends and family for the 4th and maybe a 1/2 day of relaxing and/or swimming in the pool.

What are your plans for the 4th?


  1. Good luck non-pinking the room. We're headed to the beach for the 4th...I'm VERY excited!!

  2. Our local parade and BBQ picnic at 12:30 pm. Then another party at my parents at 5pm. Fireworks show at 10:00 pm. It will definitely be a fun filled day! ;)

    Happy 4th of July.

  3. Sounds like a busy yet fun weekend! We are hosting dinner for my Polish relatives and getting ready for our trip to Flo-rida!!! =)

    XoXo =)

    We're going over to our friends (the godparents of our sons) to hang out. My oldest (2) is going to see the fireworks for the first time, the youngest (5 months) is going home with me at that point. Looking forward to relaxing. Have a great 4th!
