August is going to be a fun month. Not

So I found out today that I am going for a root canal next Tuesday. Hubs had one done 2 or 3 weeks ago. My tooth has been bothering me when I drink cold drinks & when I bite down on it the right way for a few months. I'm going to a new dentist. My old dentist told me in May that I might need a root canal. So I'm not looking fwd to that. Then on 8-21 I'm having the eye surgery. I've heard it's very painful, so I'm nervous about that. I'm not looking forward to August at all. I probably won't get much done & won't be able to do too many of my monthly goals. We are going to Boston & hopefully to a flea market & some yard sales. Wake me up when August is done.

Mommy & Me Monday

We were in the car waiting for Anthony in the store. He takes forever when he goes in the store alone. So we got bored & took some photos. I thought this came out really cute.

Too Much Stuff

I have so many body lotions, lipglosses, shower gels etc.. I buy new shampoos & use them for a week don't like them & they end up in my bathroom cabinet. New products come out & I want to try them, but I never use up what I already have. I want to work on using up my products 1st before I buy something new. It's so hard. I am trying to clean & organize & that is part of it, letting go of stuff, but also making use of stuff that I already have. Make old clothes new, but wearing them with different jewelry & wear different polishes together.

Nail Files. Week # 82

I just did my nails last night. Lately I feel like they come out a bit messy. I love the mint greens, but they always seem lumpy. This is Sally Hansen Nailgrowth miracle~Gentle Blossom & The Icing~Hey Sailor Boy

My Favorite 3 words~Back to School

I love Summer, I really do, but it has been long. I wish we had the $ to sign T up for more Summer camps, but we just don't. It's also hard to find time to do some type of school activity with her. I feel like she is falling behind, not writing everyday or practicing reading. I worry about that. I try to read a book or 2 to her each day. I bought a journal at the beginning of Summer, for her to write down what she did each day or a few times a week. I thought it would be nice for her to look back on what she did. But that hasn't happened. I want to get back on a schedule. Besides being a list-girl, I'm also a schedule-girl. So Summertime + school vacation=Crazy Mama.

*The Summer is going by so fast, but the days drag. I'm having a hard time keeping my daughter busy. She got a lot of craft/jewelry kits for her birthday, but it's getting harder to entertain her. She  has an art camp next week, so I can get some stuff done. I love Summer, but I am ready for Back to school time.
*I found out today that I will be having prk eye surgery. It's suppose to be on 8-21, but hubs has to check & see if his co-worker has that week off 1st. If she does, then I will have to reschedule. I'm a bit nervous. This is an older surgery & takes longer to heal. So for about a week, I won't be able to see too good. The doc also said there could be eye pain.
*Most of the birthday parties are over. Tara has 1 more this Saturday. There are 2 more possible 1s at the beginning of August.
*I'm so behind in all my shows on my dvr. I'm 2 weeks behind in General Hospital, but it's been annoying me lately anyway.
*Hubs wants me to get a job in the Fall, when T goes to school all day. I'd love to work from home, but don't know how to get started. I have fatigue problems, so I don't know how I would work a job. Seeing a doctor about that.
*We might go blueberry picking this week. I'll see if I can find some blueberry recipes & add them on here next week if we try any of them.

My 5 Summer Must-Haves

1. Sunblock. I use 50+
2. Face Sunblock~I use a seperate face sunblock because I have sensitive skin. I use to have really bad acne from the time I was 10-30, so I get nervous putting new things on my face. I couldn't find the Aveeno sunblock that I had, so I got Neutrogena Clear face sunscreen with spf 55.
3. Lotion~Naughty & Nice, Under my Spell, Cherry blossom & Peach. My friend got me this for my b-day & I've been wearing it everyday.
4. Burt's Bees Rose tinted lip balm with spf. I love the way it feels on my lips & it gives them a nice color
5. Sugar Rose Fresh lip balm with spf 15. The only bad thing is it's real soft, so it melts easy in the sun & mushes up sometimes when I put it on.

Nail Files. Week # 81

Lately I've been changing my nailpolish every other day. I get bored with it easy. A lot of work, but I don't mind.
Earlier in the week I had this Bon Bons polish on. I bought it for my daughter, she picked it out. She hardly ever wants me to paint her nails. So I used it 1st. Not sure of the name of the color.

Then I changed it & had Piggy Polish~Something blue & Sinful Colors nail art~What a Night. The nail art 1 is suppose to be for nail art, but I want to start using different polishes. The brush is real thin to paint your nail, but I really liked the color. I only used it once before to try some nail art. I have the silverish-white on my thumb too.

Dry hair, Help!!!

My hair has been crazy lately. It has been hot & humid, but my ends are extra dry. I get my hair trimmed every 6 weeks or so. I also let my hair air dry in the Summer, so no hairdryers. So I'm not sure what to do. Everything that I was using, that was working isn't now. I need a super duper deep conditioner or something like that. For color treated hair. Can anyone help?

Mommy & Me Monday

We went strawberry picking a few weeks ago. It started pouring out a little bit after we got there. I ran to the car & got our hats. We stayed a little longer because we had been wanting to go strawberry picking for a while. We might be going blueberry picking on Friday if it doesn't rain out again, it is suppose to.

Cheerleading camp

Tara did a cheerleading camp this week. Mon-Thurs. She really enjoyed it. Her 1st time doing cheerleading. Today I got to go & watch her do a performance. She did really good. The only thing is she's always so serious when she does things. She needs to smile more. That's her on top in the 1st pic.
