Seriously where is time going??? I can't believe its September 8th already!! Christmas is going to be upon us BEFORE we know it!! YIKES!! OK enough of that, because I am in NO way ready to think about that craziness!
So we had the last wedding for hopefully a LONG time on Saturday! Though I think I have been spoiled getting to go out with my hubby every Saturday!
On Saturday afternoon we took the boys to a duck race for the Elgin boys and girls club. It used to be (rubber)ducks that raced down the Fox River, but this year they stuck them in a fountain and kids from the club picked ducks from the fountain. We didn't win anything, but the boys had fun! After the winning ducks were picked the kids watching were able to go and pick up the ducks and put them away in the boxes. The whole time the boys kept telling me they wanted to go get wet too, so this was their opportunity to get wet. Which I wish I would have known that as they had brand new gym shoes and jeans on! It was kind of cool and the sun disappeared during the pick so they were cold when it was done! Before the duck pick they had a Karate demo and then they asked everyone that was watching if they wanted a turn, well Nick took off running as soon as they asked him if he wanted to do it, it was SOOO cute! He really did GREAT!! He followed the directions and was participating and doing everything! I wish I brought the video camera! I have also learned that dh NEEDS to be taught how to properly use the camera!! I gave him the camera to go take pics and well I only got 1 good pic!! ALL the rest are VERY blurry! That's what I get for giving him such an important responsibility! After the duck pick we took a ride on this cute little train they had there! It didn't run on tracks, they drove it on the sidewalk and we took a nice 10 minute train ride around the park and along the river! It was fun! Here are a couple pics from the day!
So on Friday night I was home without dh and got to watch whatever I wanted and of course there was NOTHING good on! So I started watching this movie on Life Time called "What Girls Learn" the description was that it was about how 2 girls dealt with their mom moving them from the South to New York because she met a man. I thought this could be good, well as I'm watching it all of a sudden becomes clear this is a TEAR jerker of a movie! And what do I do? Yep keep watching!! Here I am trying to do a 2 page LO and keep the tears off of it! I'm balling my eyes out and yet I'm STILL watching the dumb movie! Why do we do that to ourselves???? I have NO idea why I felt the need to get sad and cry like a baby over this movie when I could have changed the channel, had dry eyes and not felt all sad the rest of the night! I am surprised I didn't get any tears on my LO! I think it was that I stopped every time I teared up, which would explain part of the reason its still not done! I don't know why I have such a hard time doing a 2 pager! I do know that I REALLY need to clean my workspace and make more room to work! I need a day without the boys so I can clean AND scrap! That's the issue, when I have time to myself I go and scrap and NOT waste my time cleaning! LOL!!

Well I've spent WAY too much time on the computer this morning and as a result I now get to go grocery shopping in the rain with the boys! So much for the weather report last night that said the rain wouldn't start till 3:00 this afternoon!
Have a GREAT day!
