So…today is a very important day in the catholic faith. It is the beginning of Lent, its a great time for reflection and understanding the sacrifice of Jesus before we celebrate Easter. Many people know it as the time when Catholics give up something, but I am way too old to be giving up so I use it as a time to find a way to enrich my life and those around me.
So today, I got up, went to Church, got my ashes, worked out with Sherri, and then came home and even took Bosley for a walk! I cleaned the kitchen and picked up the living, just getting stuff done. Then I had the CRAZY idea to go outside and pooper scoop (Kent has been on my for weeks), I figured, God blessed me with a wonderful day off, I am able to get my life in order, why not!
My first mistake was putting my new Uggs on versus the old ones, I put on pants and of course gloves. Well the woman at Pet Smart made the claw seem like it was the EASY solution to cleaning poop. Obviously, I have never done this so the last time it was done was before Jerods deployment. I get out there and start picking up poop, its going okay, then it start to get a little messy.
So here I am banging the pooper scooper gently to get the poop off…fine…then I notice poop has been flying on my clothes from the tapping, not freaking yet…then I as I continue I realize that Bosley has calcified shit in the yard, did you know shit came in so many different forms? There was orange shit, green shit, red shit, slushy shit, frozen shit, wet shit, pointy shit, traditional brown shit, pebble shit, multicolor shit, and my favorite BLOB shit. I filled a bucket full of shit. Had shit on my clothes, shit stuck in my shoes and on the bottom of my pants…shit everywhere! Oh and the best part. We have a dinky little tree in our yard so I went over to break a branch off to clean my Uggs, and when I started pushing to scrap the shit out of my Uggs, I lost balance and fell and my left hand landed in shit, thank god I was wearing gloves!
You know I never had any desire to have a dog, ever! Never needed one, I barely pet the one I have, so as all of you as my witness…I will probably never clean shit again. So if Jerod for the rest of our lives feels the need to have a dog, he will be the only person cleaning shit, because honestly after today, I can live without one! I actually had the thought of giving bosley a BUTT PLUG until he learns to use the toilet!
Have a Blessed Day and I hope its not full of shit!

So I got a off day which was nice because I got to start collecting addresses for the big wedding celebration, finish my Thank you notes for all those who donated toys for the Family Readiness Group Christmas party, and I got to organize my office closest!! Yes you heard right my office has been completed. I have an awesome fiancé as you all know that had been working on this office before he left, however it was not done yet. Jerod did all the ruffin' in, electrical, and sheet rock. Then we had black textured tile put on the floor, and his dad GRACIOUSLY came in and finished painting the room, put shelves in the closest finished the trim, and finished the light fixtures. So I have an AWESOME future father in law as well, although I would forget to feed him. Anyway, I am so excited!! So here are a couple of pictures. I am waiting on ordering my office furniture until Jerod comes home I already have one piece and just need a couple more! Here are a couple of Pics!
This is the closet devoted to scrap booking and gift wrapping!!

I apologize more to my friends moms for not keeping them up to date, because lets be real they read the blog more that my friends do! So I promise to do better, I also have had a ton of people tell me that I should put the different projects I am doing for the wedding on the blog. I am a DETAIL JUNKIE these days when it comes to the wedding. So I will share some of my secrets...and its okay to copy, because honestly, Weddings are EXPENSIVE! WE need all the help we can get in cost saving! Anyway, I will be back soon, as in a couple of days, not months. In addition, THANK YOU to all the wonderful people who send Jerod boxes and sent the soldiers Christmas gifts, that is wonderful and I LOVE YOU FOR IT!
