Ripping out three layers of luan and three layers of tile (not to mention 8 layers of dirt) on a day that is close to 100 is seriously not the smartest thing to do.

Pictures to come later. If we don't pass out from heat exhaustion on our new floor.

*tap* *tap* Hello?! back?

I am at a loss at where I should start on here again. I've recently realized that you should never say that you are busy, because life will come along and show you what busy really is for you.

There is alot floating around in my brain right now. There have been losses in our family, a certain 6 year old who talks back like it is a sport, preparing for a parent to move in, and school sneaking up for Weasel and I. This whole being an adult thing is very overrated.

So, this is what is going on this week:

We are starting behavior charts for the boys. They save my sanity, and I need to have them around again. It is so helpful for Weasel to see his progress.

J and I are getting ready to rip the floor out of our kitchen tomorrow. I am very excited to get a new floor! It is one spot in our house that has needed some TLC since we moved in - over 4 years ago. I can't wait to see how it will change the look of the kitchen. I'll do some before and after photos when we are done.

My mom and her boyfriend are moving back to the area and are staying with us until they find a place. It will be nice to catch up with them, and for them to save a bit of money not having to rush into a place that might not be exactly what they want.

My sister is no longer pregnant. I can't even put into words how strange and painful it has been to see them go through all of this. I can say that I am thankful that she is okay physically and that I have the utmost love and respect for anyone who suffers a miscarriage.

My nephew E calls me May now. It is close to a version of my name, and I love it.

Ferret's speech has improved so much lately that I can't tell him apart from Weasel most of the time.

Our summer has been eventful and filled with family. I would not have it any other way. We had our three nieces in with us for two weeks this summer. Their ages range from 16 (almost 17) to 8. It was wonderful seeing them and being immersed in all things girly while they were here.

So, that is a short run down of what has been going on. I hope everyone is having a great summer, and I promise I'll try to get my brain functioning enough to come on here more. xoxo
