OK, In my defense, I really ment to clean the house for these photos. And hang some pictures. And Do the dishes, But I had to sit outside and make sure the babies didn't run into the street. And I was forced to repeatedly soak the kids with icy cold water, cus, uh, its hot and stuff. Oh and popsicles, I had to eat them, and you can't eat them inside cus "Mommy gets mad at drips" And my toes needed a fresh coat of paint... You know, Important stuff. Really I was quite busy today, In fact I even took off my pink elephant jammies before noon today! So there!
And If the counters look cluttered and the floors dusty, at least you know my kids have been fed and watered today!....

* photo deleted cus some whack job is giving out my address*


Ok so this is the front door to our house. I'm totally lying to all you people. I betcha in the ten months we have lived here we have gone through that door 50 times. We use the garage door.

And the kitchen. Please take careful note of the jar on the counter. It has a big fuzzy two inch long caterpillar we are hoping to turn into a butterfly. He is very cute, We have named him FurBall, and we are really hoping the cats don't eat him! If he turns into the cocoon thingy and a butterfly I will post pictures. I will not post any photos of my cats puking him(her?) up all over the living room floor!

Ahhh, this is where I blog. Since I blog at all times of the day, and I have rug rats (I love the term Crotch Fruit, but Hubster doesnt think I should call the kids that ... ) I blog in the middle of the downstairs "famly room" to keep an eye on them.

*UPDATE* Please click on this photo, and then click again. Then look to the left of the photo to see some freaky cat glaring at me.....
This is the part of the family room Hubs and I occupy. Please Ignore the DDR mats I havent put away. Behind the blue couch ~ yes thats the one I stapled my finger, through the bone too, is a "toy room" and Its a disaster....See


These last two photos are beacsue we got to pick our favorite parts of the house. This is my coffee pot. It has a timer, I set it for 630 every morning and it doesn't get turned off till midnight. I love coffee. No it isn't Decaf, and Yes I sleep very well at night!

This is where I spend a good part of my day. With the door open, of course. I sit in my green chair, or the pool or on the driveway or chase the kids till they are screaming.


All of these photos were taken at night, so sorry for the darkness. I hope you enjoyed my " tour of homes" post. I enjoyed showing you.

Lol, I laughed and laughed at the puddy-tat picture. Is he/she possessed? Maybe it's time for the priest.

Thanks for the tour and yey for coffee can't live without it. My machine is on all day and I sleep well too - the sleep of the righteous (well maybe not righteous, but I deserve a good night's sleep and by-gum I'm going to get one). Sorry rambling - great pictures.

Very nice home and your tour made me laugh. Hope FurBall makes it to butterfly-hood without being eaten by the cat.
