Preparing for warmer weather

I ordered a new camera today :) Nothing fancy, but perfect for my clan of explorers. I look forward to giving it Lots of use.

Tuesday night.

I am willing to admit it.  I have an addiction.
I believe this calls for ice cream.
Only 7 more episodes!

(A word from the wise: If you haven't watched Lost before, please, Please, PLEASE start from the very beginning!)

Miss Dolly

I feel alive today.  I stepped outside my door and breathed in deep, searching for a plan for the afternoon.  Autumn strolled past me in her yellow dress and galoshes, heading straight for the mud.  I think I will plant flowers.  I have a back patio that I need to fix up for the summertime when we have the pool up and the smoker going.  I have the pictures of what I want in my head, all I have to do is make it reality.  I need patio furniture.  Speaking of furniture, I wish I could get rid of the couch sitting in my living room.  Sometimes I feel like not having any furniture at all.  Just an empty house to run and dance in. 
I took in another stray.  I keep telling myself that I am going to take a break from the "rescue" business.  I just couldn't say no.  She was lying in a field, with a destroyed paw and completly empty belly.  I believe she was going to give up if I hadn't put her in the back of the truck and drove her home.  I call her Miss Dolly, she has so many wrinkles on her face that she can barely see. She is quite the lover, my Dolly, maybe due to not having anyone to love until now.  I enjoy the company of animals, sometimes a lot better than people.  We tend to have an understanding that most humans seem to neglect.  Well, I am off to Lowes.  I have flowers to plant and sun to soak up.

Yay for Birthdays! I turned 22 today. 
I love birthdays, its the only day of the year that everyone gets to have special for just them :) 

Thank you to my family for giving me such a good birthday.

Spring crazy

I'm the type of person that is pretty easy going about most things.  I have a few quirks here and there like having to make a list about EVERYTHING, being OCD only about how my rock collection lays around my house, or the fact that I MUST change my furniture and get rid of things (at the very least) every six months.

Well, its that time again.  I have hit my 6 month marker and I am on the move.  I am a strange cleaner/orginizer.  Charlie is very kind to put up with me... I have a tendency to make a massive mess while I am trying to clean up another one.  It all gets done in the end, but that is just how I am.  To clean and rearrange a room, the entire room is gutted and then the things that are really important and get to stay in that room go back in.  SO, for the better part of today, my bedroom was in my living room.  Well, I am happy to report that I have a clean AND bassicly new looking room.  It smells and looks nice, don't you just love getting cozy in a clean room? I love it.  And, as icing on the cake, I even lit some candles to melt some of that extra stress off.  
Unfortunantly, the room was my first base, now onto the loft.  I think I am going to be pulling an allnighter to get my whole house done.  

In other news, I start at the zoo tomorrow.  I decided to go ahead and volunteer as a Docent.  I will be helping out with a lot of things, including teaching kids about the animals and conservation.  I'm excited :)

For those of  you who have a clean home and don't have a two year old who won't go to sleep, goodnight.  And to the rest of you who are in the boat with me, Godspeed my friends.


I thought I would send out an invite on my blog as well

On April 10th we are having a bonfire at our house at 6 p.m. if anyone would like to come out.  I'm not going to give out my address on here, but if you would like to come, just email me at charlieandsaraz@gmail.com and I can give you directions.  It should be a lot of fun, not to mention we get to light stuff on fire :)

I. Must. Clean.

There is no getting out of it now, I need to bleach, scrub and organize.
Let's not forget about burning stuff I don't want any more.

I must build a home for chickens.

It's a beautiful, rainy day today.

A good day to listen to some Sufjan, make lists, bake, and Of Course> Clean.

Robert Charles and I often dream of living in lands far, far away from here.  It's days like this that remind me just how glorious my little Missouri world is.

A lot of people are often in a misfortunate mess of being people that can't recognize the small wonders around them, thus making them miss out on the true essence of life.


Run-on sentence/ thought of the day.

3 years have come and gone so fast!

Robert and I met 3 years ago at church.  We both went to a dance that we didn't want to be at and ended up dancing together.  6 days later, we were sitting on his living room floor trying to decide what to do for Valentines day, when he asked me a couple of quiestions about what type of mother I want to be and what I want out of life... When it seemed my answers satasfied him, he asked me to marry him.  Me, being completly crazy, said yes.  We were married a month later in the St. Louis temple on St. Patty's day. 
We have had 2 children, lived in 8 different places in 2 states, had 8 different jobs, we have shared our home with about 20 different animal, started school 3 different times, sold all of our possesions and started over 3 times, had 6 different cars (one being our moped), and have shared so many memories together in the past 3 years.  It has been a crazy road, but I wouldn't have changed it for anything.
For our anniversary ( a week early) we went to St. Louis for 2 days.  We spent the day at the zoo the first day, looking at animals, enjoying the 70 degree weather and getting mugged by a goat.  We didn't realize that that tricky fellow had taken our only means of money until around 9 oclock that night when we were searching our car and luggage franticly for our debit card.  Needless to say, we finally called the zoo and a very nice park ranger retrieved the card from the goat.  At least he decided not to eat it.
After retrieving our card, we went to the Moolah theatres to watch Alice in Wonderland.  If you haven't been to this theatre, you really should experience it, it was awesome. We spent the night in a cottage at the Napoleon B&B in the Lafayette historical area.  The next morning we went to the Arch and finished the afternoon off at the Cheescake factory.  Awesome. 

Thank you Robert/Charlie/Charles Magilicutty for the past 3 years, it's been a blast.

a tribute

I have a MASSIVE cold sore.  I hate it.  I always get them after being super sick.  I used to have them all the time in junior high and my freshman year of high school due to being really sick all the time, but I haven't gotten one in a long time.  Gr-oss.

Welcome SPRING! I am so thrilled to open my windows and smell the air.  Yesterday, outside was actually warmer than inside my home! (which actually isn't that hard, considering we have been living in the mid 50's for some time now).  We spent all day lying on the trampoline, envisioning the soon-to-be flower beds,   planning a garden and getting ready for the chicks I'll be bringing home in 3 weeks.  We set out our tents to air out and soaked up some seriously needed vitamin D.  Spring has never felt so good on my skin.

Today has been designated "Bust your butt, its spring cleaning day".  Believe me, I will be busting my butt.  SO much to do, so little time.  I'm the kind of person that loves throwing away things.  Well, or burning things, just as long as I am able to remove matter from my habitat.  Needless to say, a lot is going to be added to craigslist and the bonfire very soon.

We are going camping tonight, if all goes well...
"Red sky at morning, sailors take warning."  Lets just say the sunrise this morning was beautiful, a beautiful crimson. So, we shall see how the weather goes.  If it storms, the kids will be in the house and we will be out on the land.

We got a weasel! Well, actually, it is a ferret.  Her name is Heidi.  She is very small and likes to hop around.  I can already tell she will be a good addition to Tiny Town.

On a last note:  Shout out to Geoff and Kelly, who drove to Wyomin' this week.  Congrats guys on missing the most beautiful weather this year.

Oh, no pictures... well, here we go for fun:
In honor of my German heritage.
