And I'm Off Again...Or Is It On Again?

Another New Year!  Happy New Year to all of you regulars and those stopping by for the Ektorp reviews.  I'm so happy you're here.  I'm delighted to start another year with all you that I love and all you that I don't even know stop by.  But I'm so happy you stop by!  Thanks!   

And I'm photoless.  Apparently I've used up all my free storage space.  Whoops.  Or Whoopee!  One of those.  But that means I've got to throw down the moolah and purchase some storage space so I can get some pretty and not so pretty (that means normal) photos back up here on this blog.

And boy do I have plans.  Lots and lots of them.  I'm like the Willy Wonka of mommy plans.  I just wish more of my plans include chocolate rivers and rooms made out of candy.  Any hoo...I went and purchased some cabinets today to make our media center.  I told Biker Boy that they would be 20 percent off pretty soon and boy they sure are!  Biker Boy drove into town right now to get the big one that I couldn't get home all by myself (with two kids in tow).  I bet those cabinets will be sitting in our master bedroom for about 4 months.  Cause it's taking awhile to fix the tile and grout in the master shower.  That's the current winter project.  Personally....I haven't touched it yet, it's been all Biker Boy.  There went some Christmas money!  Up next....dishwasher buying for Christmas...cause personally I'm about to get all Karate Kid on my dishwasher.  Except I think it will hurt me.  It sure hurts my ears with how loud it is.  Any one got dishwasher recommendations?  Shoot them my way before I shoot my dishwasher.  Cause I sure don't recommend the dishwasher I've currently got.  And talking about shooting....my kid shot himself in the face with his new nerf gun just after we told him for the 20th time to never look at the barrel.  "It's not working," he said as he pulled the trigger and I was yelling for him to stop.  Luckily he didn't shoot his eye out. Kids.

Plus, I've got another IKEA review or 2 coming at ya.  I got to go visit the big blue store on vacation.  We managed to squeeze a big new heavy box into our already packed minivan.  And it's red!  That's your only clue.  Some of you know what it is cause you were there when we bought it.  Hi ya family!

Oh and I have tales of deep snow, shoving a kid down a waterslide, candy, mermaids, and mountains.  Yes, you read that right.....I said mermaids.  I've seen them you know.  They are real.  And I want to be one when I grow up.  I do love to swim.

And perhaps I'll do a review of our fun family Christmas present we got for ourselves.  So much fun!  But maybe it's just the kid in me that really loves it.  Anyone who visits us is going to subjected to hours of entertainment with it.  Or maybe just a few minutes.  It's got the word box in the name and you've got to move around with it.  Seriously....I was sore after playing it the first time.  I'll admit it.  Jillian Michaels, I am not. 

One more thing....this is personal....MOM and DAD....that marble set....it took hours to build!  Much longer than the IKEA piece.  Scooter started on it himself for 3 hours and then Biker Boy joined in later.  Biker Boy says he's even now with you for marble track building.  He lost his marbles building it.  I did 7 loads of laundry, that's what I did.

Happy New Year!  What are your plans for the New Year?  I'll be back after I get myself some photo storage space.  And find my marbles.  I think I lost them.  At least half of them.
