135th Kentucky Derby

Well, I finally made some time to post. We have been very, very busy here.

Today is one of my favorite days of the year, Derby Day! I LOVE DERBY TIME!! I love the celebrations in Louisville. It is just a great time. I can't describe it completely. It is just wonderful. I love to trying to pick the Derby winners, (which today I didn't get right). I did have the winning horse, but changed after listening to my father who said, "Mine That Bird shouldn't even be in the Derby. He's odds are 50-1." Oh well. But do you know how much that pays? 50-1!!! Crazy! I was so happy for the jockey. He seemed so humble. Anyways, it was fun watching the horses run and watching the people all dressed up. No, we didn't go down to the Downs, well because of many factors- It is expensive, the kids would be crazy there, and Isabelle is sick.

So, in honor of this great day we did our own little Derby celebrating with the Run For the Clean House. We didn't quite get it all the way cleaned, but I accomplished alot. Everything piles up so fast when mom works outside the home. I was able to clean the oven, clean the kitchen, clean the bathroom and scrub the bathroom floor, clean the girls room, and fold LOTS of clothes! I am tired! Off to figure out dinner.
