I bought an Astringent for my face in the hopes that it would help clear up my acne (which i only get in humid climates. thanks NC). It seems to be doing well but it makes my face smell like Maple Syrup. For 2 days I kept thinking, "Why does it smell like pancakes?"

Xbox Baby

One of Ruth's favorite things is to open the tray on our xbox. So to prevent any breakage this is where it sits now.

New Blog

Technically this blog is titled Us and Ruth meaning Mike, Ruth and Myself so I've decided to dedicate this blog completely to our family stuff. All my crafting and things that I do to pass the time will be on my new blog CowbellKelly. I'm not going to pretend to be a pro crafter in fact I'm definitely a novice but I do want to share my experiences with those who may be interested:)

I want to do this.

I would LOVE to remodel a doll house!!! This is from Sarah Jane, she's an illustrator that designs paper, fabric and embroidery patterns based in Provo UT (up above Timpview and the Temple). She redid this doll house to display some of her designs at a Fabric show. BRILLIANT!!!!!!!!! I recently bought some patterns from her shop on etsy.com and I'm so excited to make them for Ruth's room:) Check it out, you won't be disappointed!!

The Biz

For all you women out there who have a man that games I have a little insight for you. Mike used to play WoW (World of Warcraft) during his leisure time....and any other time he could fit in. And while it was sometimes super irritating and the cause of occasional heated discussion, "I HATE that computer!!!!" :) I understood that Mike needed an outlet from the rigors of school. Well, Mike has since started playing Starcraft and other games he can buy online. SO MUCH BETTER!!!!!! His time on the computer is much more flexible. What I mean is with WoW he had to schedule times when he could team up with his buddies to kick some butt (some of which are on the other side of the country with different time zones ie it's 12am here and 10pm in Utah when they'd start sometimes.) and then the computer would be tied up for ages till they were done. If I needed it to bad or if I needed him to bad. But now I can have Mike back after only 10 or 15 minutes ( reading back I sound really ridiculous)

What I'm trying to say is that not all computer games are created equal and there are some out there that are more friendly for family life than others. It's just up to the men to find the one for them that works.

p.s. I wish I was more eloquent but I'm not.

p.p.s. Target doesn't open for 20 more minutes and Ruth is wearing her last diaper which she just pooped in. ug....

p.p.p.s. it's oddly satisfying that Spell Check doesn't recognize Starcraft or WoW as words:)
