Need to post more often

Ok, facebook is really over taking me and I'm totally ignoring my blogs. Well, most of them anyway. I'm enjoying face book and all its games and my friends, but I still need to write in my blog about things.

We recently bought ourselves a new mini van. Our car still runs, but we've had it almost 6yrs and it was a yr old when we got it. So now instead of 1 car, we have 2 vehicles. It's been nice to just say bye to dh from the door and not have to wake ds up so he can keep an eye on youngest dd while I'm gone. And besides, it's just plain fun to drive. lol It's a Honda Odyssey '04 and the color is a mixture of dark blue with shakes of green & grey. They call it sage, but I'm not.

Another new thing we're in the process of buying is a new side by side fridge. We received the first shipment today, but the bottom of the freezer door was dented so we sent it back. Guessing we'll get a new one by Wed or Thurs of next week. Our old one is about 16yrs old and it's making noises now. Still runs, but not sure how much longer.

Next on the list(yes it's time for the big spending lol) is a new screen door. Last spring the glass portion started cracking so we taped it with packaging tape. Worked well for a bit, then cracked more. Finally dh started to take it out one day and it fell. Oh yeah! Luckily the glass only shattered and didn't spread. But was it fun cleaning up....NOT! Took over an hr. So I have handiwrap over it. So now we need a new screen door(screen portion is now coming apart.)

And last, but not least, we'll soon be looking into a new microwave. Ours again is quite old. We bought it used from dh's work 14yrs ago, I think, and it was well used then. WHEW! So you can tell we've been busy lately trying to fix and buy what we need.

Also, the end of the 2nd week ds and dh were off to scout camp for 8 days. It was a nice break, but we were glad when they came back. Apparently the weather wasn't so great most of the time. Highs maaaaybe 70 and lows 35 to 40. BURRRR

The next week was girl's camp and dh went along with dd. Her first time, and when she came home, she was just a dancing and wanted to go back. I was not offended in the least. It made me feel better that she had fun and wants to go again.

So now, we're finally settling, somewhat, into regular routine. On Monday we start our devotionals and a bit of school work. Mostly review. Then after Labor Day we dig in.

So now that you all know what we've been up to, you'll see why I haven't posted much. Also, please feel free to befriend me on face book. I'd love to "see" more of my friends. My name is Karie Harwood Gardner.

Hopefully I'll be on more. :)

Wow, you are the big spenders these days. How fun to have so many new things.

lol Yeah, well when things start breaking down you gotta do something. Dh has probably been saving for a few yrs for this. He has a tendency to surprise with me things. :)
