~helping my sister do some serious home improvements that involve painting, organizing, curtain making, curtain rod hanging, couch building, chair reupholstering and wall art making.

(clearly I don't care what my hair looks when I am working...)

~helping Maya study for a test on electricity...seriously, series circuits, the parts of an atom...really in third grade!? Well she got a 92% so the studying paid off.

~trying to publish a book...more on that soon...

Stockies

~trying my best to keep my house from smelling gross. Of course there are no pictures of this, no one needs to see pictures of my dirty house.

~making time for the temple.

~trying to figure out how we are going to celebrate our 10 year anniversary tomorrow. During the day I have to be a hair model at some meeting and unfortunately it's the eve before the garage sale, which means lots of work, and the next morning I am going to the temple with our youth group at 5am!!!!! Sorry honey, next weekend we will celebrate for real.

~ watching So You Think You Can Dance. The only show I watch now. But honestly I LOVE that show! I watched every dance at least twice last night. I have so many favorites this season. But Brandon and Jason have my heart right now. Jeanette and Kayla I really like too...we'll see if I change my mind as the season progresses. Oh and that Mia Michael's makes me soooo mad! Okay if I had more time I would do a post just on that show...

Uh-oh...I just heard Camden, he is awake, and Eden needs to study for her spelling test, and the bathrooms are disgusting and I still have a million things to do for the garage sale. So I will see you when I see you.

What are you painting now? Love the Stockmans family pictures! Beautiful!

Jessica said...

Evelyn's pictures look so good! Let me take kids for you tomorrow for lunch? Or an early dinner? I'm calling you.

Jean McKendrick said...

Wow, you did a really good job on the pictures! You little talented thing you. Evelyn looks wonderful.
I wish I was there to shop your garage sale, I LOVE garage sales. Good luck with it all, it's so much work.
Your kids are still in school??

Lindsey said...

Publish a book???Whaaaa????? YOU are the awesome one! I watched all the performances twice last night too. I like to listen to the critique and then watch it again. :) Can we have a SYTYCD party at your house when I am in town? K-thanks.

i feel so the same! to busy to blog with swim lessons and taekwondo, and gymnastics, and, and, packing for a weekend camping trip, and, and....

i thought i might get my life back once school was out, but it is still just as crazy but just with different things.

i love that you take so many pictures of what you are doing! i need to document my life more with pictures!

and your sisters pictures turned out fabulously!

Jenny Erazo said...

Great job on Evelyns family pictures! What a beautiful family she has:-) You have been super busy! Amazingly, you manage to document it all! You're great! I will totally come run the half marathon with you next year! THat would be a lot of fun!!!!

Leah said...

SYTYCD is rockin' it! I'm in the zone watching it.

Yes, Mia Michaels squashed Brandon's self esteem so rudely. It's one thing to critique, it's another to murder a creative spirit.

I can't believe you have the time to write a book. You are a crazy woman that must not sleep.

Becky said...

Yeah I would say you are too busy to blog!! I'm interested inwhat you are trying to publish :). I have done two yard sales with others this summer...I need to do another. It os so much work going through everything---we have all the kids clothes, baby things to sadly get rid of.

Melissa-Mc said...

After reading about all your business, I'm going back to bed. Good luck!

i really want to know more about the book. it's a secret desire of mine. tell, tell, tell!!!

just the five of us said...

Okay, I am not the only one curious about this book:D Is it regarding your adoption? is leah the birth mom? You will have to let that be your next blog topic:D

I always remember you as busy...That is what amazed me the most about you. You can take on anything and everything turns out great! YOU ROCK GIRL!

Natalie said...

you're amazing. and i like your big painting hair:). can't wait to hear more about this book...

doodooguru said...

Did I see that correctly? Are you actually painting a room pink? I want to see the end result.

AMY said...

sorry to say it, but I strongly disagree with one part of this post. So you think you can dance is the lamest show on T.V. come on, you can do better than that.


Mike not Amy here

Lauren in GA said...

I am totally intrigued by the book!!

I love that you make time for the temple.

Those pictues you took are fabulous!

Leah and Mike said...

You are seriously supermom!! You are so dang busy, but you still have it all together. I definitely need to learn from you! And you definitely need to do a whole post on SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE. I LOVE that show too. Love, love, love it.

Elena said...

Stockies look great! Albrecht children look so sweet! I love you all. I've been wondering what the latest was on the book. Hurry and get it done. I've got a couple of missionaries here that would like Leah to write them.; ) I told them, they'd have to get past tia Ana first. Thanks for all you do. I've been too busy to read blogs! My lunch hour is done in one minute. bye. xoxo
