Getting stuff done.....

So we have had a wonderful weekend....and of course now it is Monday....I think I will forever dislike Mondays.....I finally made it back to the gym this morning after being sick.....and man did it kick my butt.....ahhh but I must say it felt good to get back in the groove.....and great to get up early.....since I have been slacking and not getting up until 8am.....

We had a very productive rest of the weekend....Saturday morning we all headed to Home Depot to get a Rotary Spreader.....and I must admit like usual we bought more then we intended too....but it was all good as I had already budgeted for the expense.....and the expense was my tomato plants, soil and food.....I decided to get organic soil and food.....it actually wasn't much more....and I picked out an Early Girl Tomato plant, a Cherry Tomato plant and two Roma Tomato plants.....The girls picked out a Garden Pepper plant so we could make some salsa....too cute.....I must admit the girls were a little disappointed to learn that we would not be planting the tomatoes until Sunday.....and the reason why.......We purchased some top of the line Fire Ant Granules a week or so ago and it was delivered on Friday......anyway we decided that we needed to spread on the lawn first, before planting anything else.......Yes it is Fire Ant Season down here.....I HATE them....the stuff we got is pretty cool it works slow but keeps them away for a whole year and it is not harmful to pets (the active ingredient is the same as what is in Frontline Treatment for pets).....anyway so Shawn spent part of the afternoon on Saturday spreading the stuff.....We kept the kids inside and off the yard so the stuff could seep in.....We ended our Saturday night with a walk around the 'hood and a movie (after the kids were down).....oh and I made Gorditas again.......we just love them.....

Sunday morning we sipped our coffee and had a wonderful morning reading the paper.....then MJ, Lila and I went to Costco and Grocery Shopping.....we didn't have too much to get which was nice....Kiara stayed with Daddy and did some housework and helped him play a video game.....after shopping, I spent most of the early afternoon working......getting all the budgets caught up......Shawn watched a movie....(I sorta watched).....and then after nap time for the kiddos it was out to the yard to build two tomato beds......didn't take long after about and hour we had 4 tomato plants in the ground and 1 pepper plant......the girls love planting and watering.....so fun for them.......Now I just need to keep Mayday (Shawn's brother's dog that we are watching, he is not fixed and likes to pee on everything) from lifting his leg on the tomato plants......so far so good.......the only other thing I might need is some organic bug spray to keep the creepy crawlers away, we shall see......We ended our night with our nightly walk around the 'hood......after the girls were down we watched John Adams on HBO, its a pretty good series.....Shawn and I both love history..........
