Where IS my summer going?

Here we are- July 1st and I feel like I've not been given the summer off.... due to financial reasons I worked my Spring Break, I've subbed my prep, I took extra training days for pay... and now that summer is here- I still feel like the days are flying by but Im not unwinding.

Not fun.

I am the type of person that GOES, GOES, GOES and doesnt know how to slow down; no seriously, it is true. I dont know how to S L O W D O W N......  

So I decided that even though I havent had 2 weeks to sleep in and be incredibly lazy, I would begin my dream of REALLY, TRUELY, NO KIDDING AROUND, ORGANIZE MY HOUSE like I say I always want to- and I found a SUPER SITE to go to!

A Bowl Full of Lemons    <---- br="" check="" gotta="" out="" them="" you="">

I started today- since I am frustrated at my knee, which I think I might need surgery again... (this will be #3) I have had 2 meniscus surgeries already and will see the doctor soon to tell me what is wrong.
So...I started my Kitchen Organizing today and wanted to show some "Before" and "After" shots.

Let me know what you think!
PS- Great to see you again! :)

Forgot to take a pic "Before"
Full of plasticware that was strewn about the drawer. Also added the awesome drawer lining (from Costco: under $20.00 for a huge roll)

Now, I do have a bunch of "stuffs" on my island, just waiting to find a home...but it WONT BE back in my kitchen. If I hadnt used it within the past year, its OUTTA HERE!
Im only half way through the kitchen, and realistically it can take you a week or more to do, but Im chomping at the bit to get "something" productive done and I might be working a little faster than most.
No worries- if you join me- take as long as you need- but send me pics! :)

Kansas City on Day Two

I am feeling very accomplished today!

After my full day of training (8:00am-4:0pm) I put on my tennis shoes and
hoofed it over to the Union Station!

The building is simply breathtaking...





When you walk in, you notice a motorcycle right away.


I only had so much cash, otherwise I would have seen the exhibit.

If this is any indication of what is inside the exhibit- then it woulda be FANTASTIC!


I believe this is the Liberty Memorial

I then walked through the Union Station via "The Link", all the way to the Freight House District bridge.
Right underneath the bridge the trains run, so I grabbed some cool shots.
(I love trains)



Then I saw this old building. Not sure what it is, but I liked the style.
(I found out it is the KC Lofts)



And FINALLY to my destination spot-
Jack Stack Barbecue


This is the 2 item combo. Burnt Ends and Pork ribs with baked beans and cheesy corn!
Holy Momma in Heaven....
It was G.O.O.D.
Better than good....
Incredibilicious!!!!!

Then I walked all the way back to the hotel.

The End.

Kansas City Day One

Over the river and through the woods...oh wait- wrong song....

I made it to Kansas City despite being on 2 jam-packed small, itsy-bitsy planes, with sleeping through the drink service on one, and a lady being 'over her own imaginary line in space of where she should be' and into my space a whole heck of a lot....but I made it!

I even took a Super Shuttle to the hotel and saw some pretty sites!

I did go over the bridge I had seen on the internet...
and these are some of the GOR-GEE-US buildings I saw along the way...we don't have buildings like this in Palm Springs....





















I also noticed how GREEN everything was and how many TALL, GREEN trees there were. This is us speeding down the freeway...see how GREEN it is?








This the lobby of the Hyatt Regency Crown Center Hotel- stunning!









This is the view from my hotel room!!!








As the sun goes down...
And the view at night time!

And here is me; all checked in ready to go to my Yearbook Advisor's Conference!

Catching Flies....


Literally!


It has been so hot here in Palm Springs, that the flies wait patiently
by your doorway to ZOOM inside to get cool.

We have had a plethora-cornucopia of flies in the house!

Did I mention I DETEST FLIES?

You know they land on poop, right?

I DETEST THEM. YUCK.

So....I have found a way to amuse myself with them and
give them the treatment they deserve for invading my house....

You know how they fly so fast you can't get them the first day?
Then slowly they get a little slower?

Well, I got my tweezers and fly swatter ready. (snicker, snicker)
and I wait.
and wait...(whistling nonchalantly)

and swat them carefully so they arent really dead yet, only MOSTLY DEAD...
I pick them up with my tweezers and....

Feed them to my Venus Flytrap! (Big Smile Here)
