Talk about random

Here are a few things that have been going on over here.

* We bought a second car that will be used as Hubby's work car. So basically it is his car which means I can officially reclaim the van!! ( He travels all over the city for his job everyday.)

* I went to the gym for the first time last night. I LOVED it and will be going several times a week. I can't wait to really get into it. I am sore but it was so worth it.

* I picked up some Perler Beads for the kids and I to do. Do you remember Perler beads? They were one of my favorite things to do when I was a kid. I had forgotten all about them until I saw them on the Attic24 blog the other day. I even bought an iron so we could do it. ( Can you tell I don't iron?)

* I found the cutest and most comfy robe EVER for $12.99 at Ross last night! SCORE! I had been looking for one since before Christmas.

* Still working on finishing up the house. Will I ever get done?

* I am already planning my next crochet project even though my current one is still months away from being done.

* I quit my babysitting job and in the process I may have hurt one of my friendships. It just got to be way too much to handle 6 kids every day and my kids were starting to suffer from it. So I made the decision and I don't really have any regrets. The money I made was mostly extra income so even though I will miss it I felt like my mental health was more important. I still have a week or so before she takes them to someone else. ETA: I just talked to her again and I think we are ok now.:)

* I got the boy the cutest African Safari comforter last night. He needed a new one since we had to throw his old Cars one away when we moved. Something got on it and was not worth trying to clean. He loves this one and it is SO bright and happy.

* We are getting the boy's hair cut later today. He is so overdue but he has the most perfect soft blonde hair so I have been putting it off for months. Hubby still doesn't want me to get it cut again even though we could put his hair in pigtails if we wanted to. It's time.

* We are going to see my step-sister perform this weekend!! Can't wait.

* My mom is taking Macie overnight today!

* I am counting the hours until the weekend.

* There just aren't enough hours in the day. Anyone else feel like that?

* Hubby made us reservations at a super nice(and expensive) restaurant for Valentines Day. He popped a lock for them and instead of charging them cash he accepted a $75 gift card since it was a side job. This place is so expensive we will still have to spend some of our money. We can't wait!! A night out with nice clothes, great food, wine, my hubby and then hitting the gym late at night= PERFECT!!

* I miss so many of my friends. Since we moved I haven't seen any of them. Everyone is busy,working, etc. I really miss my friends.

* I really love our house.

* While I was typing this post the boy found hubby's Rockstar can and drank a few remaining drops. I think I might be in for a long day.

I told you this was a random post. I had planned to post other stuff but it isn't going to happen for a few days. Happy Thursday!

You do realize I'm in charge of everything and not performing? I'm running the show by calling cues for lights, sound curtain; preparing actors, etc. Brent is dancing and singing. I make the beginning announcment, so have the girls practice screaming, "GO MARY!" Haha. See you soon!

Love, Mere

I think I am going to go on strike with your blogs. Since you don't ever comment on mine anymore!

I am so happy for you finally getting your car back! Hopefully, this car will work out for Chey this time!!!

I have no idea what Perler beads are, so does that answer your question? :)

I told you, you and Rachel would be fine. What did she say? Email me about that!

Take time to come see me, I miss you soo much!

Have a great day!

Oh the perler beads Ryker and I play with all the time! We have a blast, hope y'all do too!
Yay for getting a new car! We are looking for one right now but as soon as I found one I love, its just been sold. Yuck!
Good for you to let go of something that is best for you and your family. Im sure in the long run she will understand. Friends do that. =)
Your Valentines night sounds like a good one!
