I finally got my car back today. My mechanic.... well. I am not going to go into the whole story but I haven't decided if I will be going back to him or not. But at least I have my car back and it is running. I have never been so happy to go to Walmart before in my life. I was totally going stir crazy stuck here in the house with the kids and no way to go anywhere. I love my boys but their conversational skills are somewhat lacking. Although the baby now sounds like a chicken. Ha. He says "Ba.... bah, Ba.... bah" and the way he says it? Just like a chicken. Too too funny.
Takes me back to that saying... raising kids is like being pecked to death by a chicken.... hehehehehehe
I went shopping today and found some great Xmas material on clearance for $1 a yard. I bought lots. I think I am going to make fabric gift bags for next year. And maybe use it for lining old baskets for my goodie baskets. Kinda shake things up a bit! I also bought some yarn so that The Girl and I can start learning to knit.
Tomorrow I plan on posting my "Things I accomplished in 2007" list and then move on to my New Years Resolutions... dum dum dum....
I am feeling slightly nostalgic this evening. Remembering when I was in high school. My daughter asked me today what it felt like listening to her talk about her friends, etc. And all of the new HS activities. I told her it made me feel old. And I guess nostalgic too. The good old days. Full of drama and world ending grief and that first rush of LOVE! TRUE LOVE! O, this is THE ONE! Not! LOL.... Now I am starting to feel a little anxious about The Girl! She is a good girl. Good head on her shoulders. But she has a heart the size of Texas. Too big. And soft and soooo caring of others. She can get hurt so easily. I was much harder and more cynical by her age. Which is better? To be so trusting that you get hurt easily or to not trust enough but be a little more protected? Don't get me wrong... I still got hurt and had my heart broken. But... I worry... must be a mom thing!
I think I am getting my hair cut. I haven't quite decided on how short or what style. But I am really tired of the baby pulling it and the tangles and eating it whenever the wind blows. I figure it will grow back and by the time it gets long again the baby will be over the worst of the pulling stage. I hope. I also think I am going to go red. For my DH. He likes red heads. And long hair. So I will trade him. I get it cut shorter but he gets the red. Fair? Sounds like it to me! So.... those of you who know me... how should I get it cut? Hmmmm????? Chelle... I am talking to you!! LOL
Also.... I am almost finished completely reorganizing the boys' room/s. They have a double room. It's like two bedrooms connected with a short hall and only one door to the rest of the house? Make sense? And it has built in desks and shelves on each side. So, I have been reorganizing and cleaning for days. Trying to figure out the best way to fit in all of their books, toys, clothes, furniture and oh yeah... them! I think I am almost done. I move the toys back in tomorrow. (Why do I always misspell tomorrow?) They have been living in my living room (appropriately enough) since Sunday. ALL of their toys. ALL OF THEM. All over my living room. Crazy. Maybe I will take pics when I am done and post. I think it looks pretty good. Not really decorated too much yet.... but organized! (That's a big deal at my house!)
OK. Nothing earth shattering going on here.
