Holy cow! I actually have some free time, with both hands, to type out a blog. Let's see how long I can write for before one of the 2 children has a conniption! Joking! Well, kind of, it's mostly true though. And I say that in the nicest, loving way possible. Anyway! Today was pretty uneventful.
Last night I went out with Sandra and Julie for Sandra's last GNO before she moves to Hawaii. We went to dinner and then a movie. Saw the Proposal for the second time, it is just as good the second time around. And Ryan Reynolds is just as adorable the second time too!
Today I took the girls to Barnes and Nobles. Sandra got this "listography" journal as a gift last night. And it looked awesome, so I had to go get one. It's like journaling topics you answer in list form. Awesome! Until it asked the question, "what's the most ackward place you've had sex?" or something along those lines. With that being said, there are a few topics in there I may not answer. I don't want my kids or grandkids reading that stuff when they go through my belongings someday! For the most part, it's an awesome journal though. You can go to to see more about it.
Wow, Erin is starting to fuss a little already, so I better hurry. To end the day, we had dinner at Warren's parents house. She made this yummy, yummy lasagna! Then the women of the family decided we were going to try to go see Star Trek at the dollar theater. Totally sold out, major bummer! But, we got ice cream instead which totally made up for it. Warren and the rest of the gang went to the 9:30 showing while the girls and I headed home for some much needed quiet, "let's watch some Little Einsteins" time.
Anyway, the day was really nice. Warren and I had a little misunderstanding about the whole Star Trek thing and if he was going or not. He thought I didn't want him going, and I just wanted him to tell me if he was going so I could come home and get stuff done so I wouldn't have to do it tomorrow! He was very supportive, even said he would rub my feet when he got home. He's so anti-feet he's only touched mine once since we've been married. Doesn't bother me either way! lol.. So then I told him I had stuff I wanted to do before tomorrow came. He should be on days at work soon to prepare for his upcoming DLPT (annual language test). Anyway, I think I've ranted enough! Until next time!

So, I seem to be failing big time at trying to write something everyday. Well, I don't have an excuse. It's not like I'm incredibly busy during the day. I put so many things on my "to do list" and I rarely get half of it done. I need to get caught up on dishes and laundry. I still need to put food away from 3/4 days ago. I started brainstorming and implementing ideas for my Home Management Binder, but haven't got that far.
Speaking of the HMB, my husband's monitor broke, so he has been using my laptop. Well he saw the file for it on my desktop and went snooping. I felt like he was just going to pick at me for "wasting my time" on it. Instead he really likes the idea and wants me to put it in binder form. So now I feel a little pressure in doing something that was just supposed to be a little side project.
Holy cow, it's hard to type all this with one hand. Going to have to finish quick since Erin is fussing. I should know by now, this late at night, she just wants to go lay

So, we didn't get the car. =o( They said we would be approved for something in the low teens, ouch. But they told us to try again once we are able to put down more of a down payment, then it shouldn't be a problem. I am trying not to be bummed about this. Maybe it is a blessing in disguise for now. It will be nice to have a few months of not having to make a car payment. I will have 2 credit cards paid off in the next few months as well. So, by the next time we try for a car, my credit should have improved a little bit more too. *crossing fingers*

I love my husband. We really are perfect for each other. He gets me, and I would like to say I get him too. We balance each other out. He keeps me grounded, no one else has ever been able to basically grab me by my shoulders and say "chill out!" like he can. I may have had reasons to have my doubts with him in the past, but none of that is even present today. For the most part, my issues with trusting him are gone. After talking with him tonight, I know I have absolutely nothing to worry about. I love everything he is doing for us, and especially for me. Instead of helping to pay of the debt accrued on my credit cards, he could tell me to just go out and get a job.

I may get a little irritated from time to time when I don't feel like he is helping enough. Or when I feel like I should be thanked, or even complimented. But, with Warren, the times he does those things, I really appreciate it. It's rare, and I can see why. If he was to tell me everyday, "wow, the house really does look nice," or stuff like that, it wouldn't make me feel the same way.

My husband is who he is, and he's not going to change. I can't believe it's taken me 4 years to just finally realize this. I love him as he is, and I don't want him to change. I mean sure, there are always
a few things that could be tweaked, but when it comes to his general character, to me, he's perfect.

Holy cow! So, today we find out if we will be considered to finance a used '09 Honda Element. That's the think for the car at the dealer. I'm really nervous, because yesterday they were telling us there would be no problems at all if we were able to make a $4k-$5k down payment. Right now, we're barely able to scrounge up $2500. Either this is the car we are meant to have, or we are just going to have to save up for a few months to find something different. I'm okay with whatever happens.

I love days when I am so absolutely busy that I don't even realize what the date is or if there was something I was forgetting. Like yesterday for example, I knew what the day was, pay day, so I should have been able to tell it was the 14th. I am glad I had kept myself so busy or else I probably would have been a depressed mess all day. Yesterday was the day my dad would have turned 61. But anyway, that day has come and gone already, it just makes me end up missing him even more.
On a different note, today is my mother-in-law's birthday. When I'm done typing this I will probably call her and see if there is anything she wants to do today. Granted, the weather isn't the best, but I just don't feel like sitting around. The hubby is just going to be sleeping all day anyway.
Sometimes I wonder if there should be a general theme to my blog. Other times I think that's just silly. But, those times when I feel like I should have one, it gets me thinking how I may write more often if I did have a theme.
Anyway, Erin is starting to toss and turn in her little chair. So, I think this will be another short post. She doesn't seem to sleep well anywhere else than with or on mommy.

Day 1 of forcing myself to write at least something everyday for a month

Things have been kind of interesting lately. I am way busier as a mother of two than I ever was with just Shannon. But I am LOVING it. I kind of feel like whatever hole that was there before has since been filled. More kids in the future one may ask, the answer as of right now, probably night. We said we'd discuss it in 3 more years, maybe.
I was getting into a really good workout and cleaning routine. Then, Erin changed her schedule on me again. I think kid's are completely unpredictable, and you know, I like it that way. It keeps me on my toes!
Anyway, back to this whole WiiFit business. I try to do about 20 minutes on it everyday. Since June, I have dropped about 3 pant sizes and close to 25 lbs since I walked into the hospital to have Erin. And a little over 10 lbs since I had my gallbladder taken out in the middle of June. I'm happy, I'm beginning to tone up a little.
All around, things are starting to really look up. Not like things were at a low to begin with, but there was room for small improvements. Anyway, will hopefully write more later. I have to try to get Erin down for her morning nap. Then, I eventually have to get some housework done and get some stuff for a church picnic this evening. So, I'm hoping to be busy! Wish me luck.
