Woo hoo!

Look what came to my house today..

I'm just a lil' bit happy about it. Now I have to wait for the kids to go to bed to watch all of the extra goodies.

P.S. I have Netflix now and I need some movie recommendations from everyone. I don't know what to rent. My queue has 1 movie in it..true story.

That is all.

My heart melted..

Last night when I put Brady to bed he said,"I love you mama,you're my best friend". Sometimes kids are too sweet for words!

Just cuz!

Oops,I did it again.

~~Yesterday was my 2 year blogiversary. I am thinking about making up a quiz about me,myself and I just to see if you all have been paying attention the last 2 years. ;) I don't have time to do it right now but keep an eye out. Whoever wins just might get a prize! I know you are way excited for that! :P

~~Yesterday the internet was down (it turned out the modem was un-plugged), I was sick and my kids made a mess of the house. The End.

~~I have one of those 24 hour headaches that just won't go away. I am still going to the gym though, I will not be stopped!

~~Josh is so difficult in the mornings! It is like pulling teeth to get him ready for school. He won't answer me except to whine and I end up ornery because of it. If I have to do this for 11 more years,I will lose my freakin' mind. If anyone has any ideas on how to make him less cranky I would love to hear them.

~~On a good note: The weather is supposed to be really nice today with highs in the mid-60's and it looks like it will be around 70 this weekend. YAY!!!

Happy St Patrick's Day!

What's up? Well, I'll tell ya.

~~Josh has been doing a lot better lately. He walks to and from school with some kids in the neighborhood and he loves it! He and Bri are friends with another little boy who lives by us and they have a lot of fun together.

~~Bri has become our little wanderer. The other night a man and his little boy came over and they had her with them. Apparently she decided to leave the yard and walk down the street to find some kids to play with. Our neighbor said she was welcome to play anytime and hopefully (after getting in trouble) she will remember to ask first.

~~We have met 4 of our neighbors and they are all so friendly. I'm glad we moved here,it seems like such a great neighborhood.

~~I've been going to the gym 4-5 days a week and working out for 60-90 minutes. I am so out of shape but I'm making the effort. I've been sick the past few days but I only missed the gym once. Go me!

~~I have become addicted to re-run's of "Wife Swap" on the Lifetime channel. From 2-4pm you will find me watching TV instead of being productive. I am NOT a fan of reality shows at all,but this one intrigues me. I think it's interesting to see these people who are so extreme. I'm sure some of it is scripted but it's like a train wreck and I can't stop watching.

~~I've decided to become an Avon representative. They have such a variety of items now and I've always liked their jewelry. If anyone is interested in checking out the products,please let me know. :)

A decision has been made.

I've decided to go with Option #1. That way if Josh doesn't get in,we will just pull Brianna out of the school. Thanks for all of the input! :)

Tuesday, March 3, 2009

I'm feeling conflicted..

Here's the scoop...I filled out applications for Josh and Brianna to attend a charter school nearby. I have a niece and nephew who go to school there and my SIL encouraged me to apply. I received a phone call today from a woman at the school telling me that Brianna was accepted,however there are no spots available for Josh. The woman said he would be put into a "sibling pool",which is not a guarantee but gives him a good chance of getting a spot. Now I don't know what to do. First of all,Josh and Brianna going to 2 different schools is not an option for us. Josh has a hard enough time with school and I don't want him to feel bad that he didn't get in and Brianna did. He so wants to go to that school with his cousin because they are in the same grade.

Here are the options...

#1. Take the spot for Brianna and get her registered,then wait until the end of summer. If Josh doesn't get in,then take her out and register her at the school Josh attends now.

#2. Just say no right now and let someone else have it,then apply during the next school year.

Right now I'm thinking Option #1. Whatever I decide,I have to let them know by noon tomorrow. Any input is appreciated,so leave me some comments! TIA!

(Jeez,I sound really bossy! I'm practically ordering you all to leave me comments) :P

Grandma Spendlove

My hubby's grandma passed away yesterday morning. She has struggled for a long time and she was ready to go. Adam and I took the kids up to visit her last week and I'm so glad we did. I can only imagine the joyful reunion when she was reunited with her husband and other loved ones. Every time a loved one passes away,it makes me so grateful for my faith and for the knowledge that death isn't the end. She will be missed.
