Happy Friday! Boy, did we have some helluva thunderstorm last night! Xander came into my room towards the end of it around 5:00am, but he wasn’t falling back to sleep – he wasn’t scared, just super wiggley – so I moved him back into his room and told him to come get me when it was light out. So, 7:30am he comes back in (he had slept more though, I could tell). It’s already 9:30 – cool!
I don’t think our playgroup is doing anything today … We’ve got Chief pinnings and mother in laws, sick kids, smashed fingers … it’s been a crazy week. I wish everyone well and get well!!
I got a few things on my To Do list from the other day done. I mowed the lawn yesterday also (thank goodness because of that storm!) So, now if the weather is decent today I am going to haul some boxes to storage. I’ve gotta get the garage cleaned out more, especially if it is going to be raining this much now. I’d like to actually put the van INTO the garage. That and I’m on a hunt for Alan’s cammies still!
Always too much to do … I think I will work on the kitchen today, maybe sorting out some stuff. Packing and cleaning … blah blah blah …
Gah!! (I think that’s my favorite word lately). I could’ve sword that Alan’s cammies were in the garage and not up in the attic. I can’t find them, so I’m guessing they are up in the attic.
Xander is making me nuts because he’s been very “play with me, watch me” lately and I’ve been in a craptastic mood. I think I’m getting sick also.
Ugh, nevermind … I’m getting stressed blogging now because Xander is now feeding his toys the cheerios that he doesn’t want to eat. That he asked for. I need a nap. He’s SO going to bed early tonight. I’m so tired of him completely ignoring me.
My friends were teasing me the other day because I was still up at 2am blogging. Well, it’s either blogging of playing Sims2 right? Heh … Well, they will be happy to hear I went to bed much earlier last night. I took a shower and was in bed by … 11pm. Er. Yeah, still a little late I guess. I was trying to be in bed earlier! Doesn’t work out often.
So, good morning! Xander came into my room around 5:30am and climbed into the bed, didn’t say a WORD and fell asleep, lol. So, I rolled over and fell back to sleep! He got up for the day around 7:15am. Still a little EARLY in my book, but, it’s okay. While I was making his milk I swigged some Mountain Dew. mmmmmmm do the Dew! I still need to put my contacts in though, yeah, I’m typing this blog without seeing! Woo! Go me!
My agenda/to-do list for the day includes:
- Contacts/Get Dresses
- Dishes (Wash, Put Away)
- Take boxes to storage unit
- Grocery shopping (I need milk and juice!!)
- Fold and Put Away Laundry in dryer
- Playgroup @ 3:00pm
- Begin bootie bag project (find a uniform to chop up!)
- Bed at DECENT hour (before 1030pm at least)
Let’s see how much I get done. It’s not TOO bad of a list at least.
Ugh, something in the “Recent Visitors” is breaking my code on Starryskye. Not in the mood to fix it, so it will disappear for a bit until I do.
Life updates – I’m throwing a pity party and you are ALL invited:
- Someone went on a shopping spree with Alan’s credit card. Over $1,000 was
charged by the person all from New York. We’re talking $600 for shoes, $400
for meat/beef … Crazy. The bank girl and I had a good laugh over it though.
This shit wouldn’t happen if people would just ASK FOR DAMN ID!!!!
- Trying to sell the house … the market sucks obviously – and I got the
payoff amount from the bank. Let’s just say it’s more then we paid for the
house in the first place. Guess we’ll try and rent it out.
- Got paid less this time around then last time. I expected it – but it
still sucks since last paycheck was nice.
- Packing, cleaning, etc SUCKS …. I think I might have a moving party
soon. How does that sound girls? I feed you and you pack my stuff? (With my
help of course, lol).
- I’m tired and stressed out, completely. Also, it’s hot in here and I’m not
sure why as the air is reading 76 degrees.
- I think I will have some booze and play Sims2 after Xander goes to bed.
Ya know, I could really use an Orlando vacation home rental right about now. Orlando makes me happy. Well, DISNEY makes me happy.
Well, I’ve had my new car since April 4th, 2007 and I still love, love it! I drive a “used” 2007 Honda Odyssey â€“ a mini van, yes, but a NICE one. I’m in the process of “pimping it out” a little more, making it a little cooler. You know, bumper stickers (currently, I have 3 â€“ “Come to the Darkside, We Have Cookies”, “I love my sailor” and “Support Our Troops”) and maybe some cool seat covers. I have a beautiful rosary in the rearview from my sister in honor of my nephews Baptism and my yummy “Home Sweet Home” Yankee candle air freshener. It has seating for 8 and around 17 cup holders, a Navigation system and of course a DVD player. I love my car! No, I’m NOT a “soccer mom” â€“ just a mom who needs a ton of room for her kiddo, her friends, her stuff and her 113lb dog!
I don’t plan on trading this car for a new one anytime soon. Alan has the Chevy Tracker, so he’s happy with a “4×4″ even if it’s “just an SUV” â€“ you can take it off-road at least.
Yesterday Amy and I drove down to Tampa to her school so she could do a photoshoot. The pictures turned out great, much better then last time (I liked the last ones also, but this time I felt more relaxed). Of course I made a few goofy faces, so I’m sure those will end up on my Myspace.
Today my parents are taking me to Red Lobster for my Birthday dinner!! I love that place Plus, all you can eat shrimp – how can you go wrong?! My Birthday is on Saturday
Saturday, I have plans with Anne to hang out for a little bit and let the boys play. Xander and her son are the SAME age (like, Xander is 1 day older). They have fun together and it’s a riot watching them. They are such BOYS!
I want to hit the Flea Market sometime this weekend … Xander was requesting blueberries – wonder if they are still in season? But, I’d like to get some veggies to bring home. Maybe some rolls also. Of course I’m always looking for cool “Flea” deals also!
Xander is watching The Polar Express (again!) I got out of the shower and was wondering why he was so transfixed to the television, then I heard the “We’ve Got It!!” hot chocolate song and I knew .. Now apparently he’s getting in trouble because I hear Grandma giving him “what for” … Guess I gotta go “Be Mom” and see whats up. This is normal, yay for the terrible twos …
