I'm on a roll......

A roller coaster that is...


First of all thank you so much Nancy for yet another award this week. It's the "wonder woman" award. I certainly don't feel like wonder woman at the moment but I keep trying and that has to count for something right? If at first you don't succeed, try try again.






There are so many people who deserve this award that it's hard to choose but I would like to pass this award along to Carrie. From what I have seen, she is one heck of a trooper and always has an upbeat attitude. She seems to accomplish more at 9 months pregnant than I have in my whole life.


As far as other things go, I've been hanging in there with my new job. I'm starting to get used to it and am starting to contribute a bit here and there and that is always a good feeling. I finally kicked the creeping crude that I had for a over a week. I was actually able to get some things done around the house this last weekend that had been sorely neglected.


This weekend my sweet hubby is taking me away from it all for my birthday. We're heading for the beach on Friday. I'm really looking forward to it. There is just something about the ocean that has an automatic calming effect on me. We're going with some dear friends and I just know that we're going to have a blast.


Everything else is going fine. I don't have half the things done that I would like to have done by now but I'm working on them so I'll get there. We have the Halloween costume for Blake and will be going to pumpkin patch Monday. I took the day off to have a long weekend and an extra day with my boys.

Ah... the beach! I love the Oregon coast... so green and beautiful! Which beach are you headed to? I hope you have a fantastic birthday :)

Woo-hoo! A blogger award! Thank you! In all honesty, the only reason I'm doing so much when I'm this pregnant, is because I don't want to be pregnant anymore. Gotta keep busy to get the baby out!

Happy birthday! Enjoy your trip to the beach. Where are you going? If you're in the Newport area, there's a place called Georgies that is very, very good. Best clam chowder in the world, according to Brian.
