Tagged again!

I got tagged by a gal I CT with at K-Joi studios. Thanks sweetie!! lol

So 7 random things...
1. I had an awesome grilled london broil with rosemary dill potatoes on the side and green beans for Memorial Day lunch. Yummy. Now I am too stuffed to want the apple crisp I was planning to make for dessert, though. We had frozen smores instead!!
2. I love the song Crimson and Clover. lol I hadn't heard it in ages and then I visited the blog that I got tagged from and it was playing on Sarahs blog. lol
3. My hubby let me get a new tamron lense for my camera as my mothers day present.
4. I am bad about buying things for myself. I can never seem to justify getting things I need for me, and instead spend it on things we need for the kids or the house.
5. I hate balancing my checkbook
6. I haven't paper scrapped in over 2 months.
7. I feel guilty when I leave the house alone for more than 2 hours.

So I am going to tag 2 people. Not sure who, though. lol I am thinking my friend Kate and Danielle from another CT I am on.

Directions when you get tagged. Post 7 random things about yourself, then tag 2 people. Let them know they have been tagged and direct them to your blog to find out what to do!

Been a few days

Life has been crazy around here and kept me from really getting online and posting anything. We have had field trips and more field trips, doctor appointments and emergency trips.

In May my hubby had to fly to WI and attend his grandmothers funeral. She had been ill for quite some time, but my mother in law didn't know until days before she passed. He spent a week with his mother and sister and nephew, with one day in Chicago for a memorial service, as well as clearing out her apartment. He brought home an envelope full of photographs that she had of him, his sister, and his parents.

There have been 3 field trips this month between the 2 girls and 2 more in the week to come. Dan is going with Katie on the one trip, but since it is on the same day as the one for Laura, I won't be able to go since I can't get a babysitter. Katie is going to LA to the Natural History Museum, an Aquarium, the La Brea tar pits and someplace else. Laura is going to a Rodeo in Santa Maria.

Other than what has kept me away, there is no really big news in my life. I have been sneaking in scrapping time in the middle of the night when kiddos are asleep and I have finished all the household chores I need done for the day. Makes for some late nights! lol
