GETTING ALONG LIKE PEAS AND CARROTS - WELL PEAS AND BEANS ANYWAYS


I feel negligent. I haven't been up to date on my posting or reading posts. Sorry to all!!! I promise to be better soon. My parents are in town and we've been going non-stop pretty much from the get go. Jarrett and dad have been working on the deck (from hell). They decided to anchor the deck to the concrete pad, so drilled holes in the concrete most of yesterday. I have a feeling it's going to be a long process. Mom and I spent most of the week-end buying more plants (yes more plants) and planting those. Plus trying to trim up the trees and fix the soil. We figured we have too much clay in ours, so I bought some clay buster to fix the soil. Hopefully it works. The past two days were awesome weather wise. Today might be a bust later on. Although weather.ca sucks ass - they couldn't tell you what was going on at that moment, I don't take too much stock in what they have to say.

Tonight I have my belated Mother's Day massage. I forgot all about it until Jarrett mentioned it. So bonus!!! It was the earliest he could get me in. I haven't had a massage in a while, so I'm sure it'll be awesome. I feel a little bad since my folks are here you know. But I'm sure they wouldn't want me to miss it (even if they do - too bad! LOL).

My babies turn five tomorrow - my twins. WAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!! I'm half-way excited, and the other half sad. How could it be five years already? We plan on having a little party for the family only tomorrow. The big party is on the 23rd (we even hired a clown). I have to remind myself to go to DQ and buy an ice cream cake for tomorrow. I'm sure I'll have pictures to post on Wednesday.

Anyways, I have to get outside. We are transferring a rose bush and then planting my peas and beans (well my mom is). It's only fair I help LOL. Have a good one!

I love yard work.
Seriously...i love it.

But, it's very difficult with a baby who is...what, 20 months now?

So, I'm envious of your yard work time. BUT...to me, dirt is dirt. I never would have thought about something called clay busters.
hmmm???

Hope you enjoyed the massage!
I also haven't been able to keep up with the blogs this week. I think it is just that time of year...life seems to get busier.

Enjoy the time with your folks!

Ahhh...I love massages. I love just laying there and not worrying that I am taking up too much time or whatever. Just drifting and feeling all that tension slide right off you....
