I am going to start painting again! Finally now that they are older I can work on being an artist again. YAY!!! I am also going to give more time to my worm colonies and children's book I am writing.

Oh yes, getting more exercise and to contradict that statement, enjoy eating junk food without having to SHARE!!!!!

First I am going to clean!!! Time to get out the old toys, broken toys, etc and get rid of them. Its hard to do with the kids around, they want to rescue everything, lol. Same with clothes, get out everything and see what fits, then get rid of the others. But, I plan to walk each morning. It was a huge PITA this summer. I wanted to walk a few miles, but the kids weren't as eager, lol. I also plan to schedule some photo portrait sessions with some friends and their little ones. I am building up a portfolio. School starts tomorrow and this year both my kids will be in school full days. I just don't know what to do with my spare time, lol.

After my little one went on the school bus for 1/2 day pre-K, I took the dog for a 1/2 hour walk. We both loved it! I also watched t.v., used the internet, read a book, and napped. The morning went too fast.
