What we've been up to.....

When I make my Sunday phone calls to my parents and my sister, they usually ask, "So, what are you up to?" And my typical answer is, "Not much, how 'bout you?" You'd think we were boring or something, because really, we're not up to that much. So why do we feel like there's not enough time in the day to get done all that we want to get done?

Well, for starters, Dan has been working a lot on our place. He spear-headed our bathroom remodel, and it turned out fabulous, but since it's been nice outside, he's been dealing with the downed trees in the pasture. The logs finally got picked up and taken to the mill, so Dan's been busy cleaning up debris, burning slash piles and cutting and stacking firewood. Oh, and if he wasn't sore enough from all that manual labor, he also decided to turn the compost pile, by hand.

And then there's me. I begin my day with a list of things I plan on accomplishing. When I'm at work, I usually get done what I plan to get done. This does not work so well at home. See, at home, I have an unpredictible little "assistant" who doesn't really help very much. But she's so dang cute, I don't mind.
When I want to hop on the computer to work on a project, Lana "helps" me by playing the with toys I set up for her right by the desk. She likes playing and likes being able to see Mommy, so it's the best of both worlds. I usually get about 20 minutes of computer time in when we do this.

Oh, and I also need to make sure we're all fed on a regular basis. I have a helper there too. She likes the kitchen because we can play the magnet game, which consists of Lana sitting in front of the fridge and taking down every magnet she can reach, then she'll look at me and that's my signal to gather all the magnets back on the fridge so we can play again.

So yeah, really, we're not up to much around here.
