Yes Twilight again....

I made it through New Moon and I have 200 pages of Eclipse left. I just bought the special edition of Breaking Dawn today and was pleased to see that it is over 700 pages! I'm so hooked on this series! Ok beyond hooked!!!! Like some people think I have sickness...and I just might. However I just wanted to note that I did not like New Moon as much as Twilight because I LOVE Edward and feel bad for Jacob because he is a great guy he just needs to find a new girl! But I am getting excited to watch Twilight AND New Moon. And while New Moon wasn't my favorite I'm excited to see when Bella and Edward reunite in Italy!!! I'm offically making November 20th girls night!!!! I must get back to work now so that I can fly home...clean house and spend time with Dalton and Rocky because once 8 o'clock hits I'll be reading until 11 :) at least! I'll see you all soon...but I have a lot of reading to do first...

Do you think my boss will notice?

If I sat at my desk and read New Moon all day? Ok so the obsession started slowing but....I am 100% completely hooked on the Twilight series!!! I know I'm probably one of the last people on this bandwagon but I don't care! I wasn't going to read the series because it was so "popular" however I read Twilight in 2.5 days and just started New Moon last night and read about 150 pages. I've heard people say that New Moon wasn't their favortie of the series and I'm beginning to understand why. I have lots of reading time this week so we'll see how far I can get! I'm vowing not to watch the movie(s) until I have read the whole series. But honestly I have perfect visions in my head of the way it should look so I'm afraid I'll be disappointed when I do view them.

We have a turtle...

So my mom and step dad brought down this little turtle this past weekend for Dalton. I am hoping to get a picture of the turtle and the boy together. But lil D stays a safe distance away from the turtle. Anyway we got on the internet the other night to see what kind and how exactly we are supposed to take care of our new little friend. He or She appears to be a Western Painted Turtle.

Apparently this turtle likes to bask or tan...so I need to go get a UV light for the top of his/her tank...then it needs heat from underneath...a swimming area...a beach area...a diet that consists of worms...crickets...veggies...fruit...and of course reptile food. We have not bought all of this stuff yet...but will be making a fast dash to the store tonight...because...last night we thought turtle was dead.

We came home from the park and it wasn't moving and was laying with all of it's limbs outside of his shell. Rocky said I banged on the side of the tank and it won't move. I think the t-u-r-t-l-e is d-e-a-d and I didn't really want to have to tell Dalton his pet had died...even though he's been through it before when our best friend Twister the dog died ( I still miss her deeply). So I whisked Dalton down stairs to do some laundry so Rocky could take care of the issue...when he starts yelling "False Alarm" whew!!! He evidently picked up the turtle and dropped it and then it started moving again and acting naturally.

So yes tot he store we go tonight to get all the supplies for this little pet! Thanks mom! Could you please have a back up turtle around just in case :)

My poor house...

...has been completely neglected this week. I have been working at 4:30 a.m. picking Dalton up at 1 bringing him home and napping until 3 when Rocky got home from work. Talk to him about stuff that I can't tell you about....yet! Then getting ready...go teach aerobics...come home and eat (because my husband has been awesome about cooking this week) give the kiddo a bath and fall into bed so that I can get up and do it all again the next day. So I'm really needing to get back into a cleaning schedule. Ok who am I kidding I've never had a real good cleaning schedule I basically do what HAS to be done and then clean like a crazy woman on the weekends. I don't want to be her anymore! Plus we're planning on finally remodeling the basement this fall/winter and make a storage room, family room and play room and that means instead of just stuffing junk downstairs I'll actually have twice the amount of space to clean.

I know this is a very interesting post about my house cleaning...but it has a point I need help on cleaning products. I need your tips for what you use to make the cleaning a little easier. #1 being a new mop...mine really just sucks...It seems like i've tried every brand out there without success...I was actually thinking of just getting rid of it and getting a shark steam cleaner for my tile floors...ew I hate grout by the way.

So have any tips send them here....life is getting ready to get crazier and I need all the advice I can get!
