The past 5 days I have been playing mom to 5 children. I've done this before, on multiple occasions even! Same kids, same me, but suddenly harder. I don't know why it's harder. I've determined it really doesn't have anything to do with the kids, just with me. Patience is thinner, perhaps? Perhaps. Needless to say, Friday can't come soon enough. I'm not equipped to handle 5 kids for much longer!! :)
Dallin is in Ellensburg. I will be joining him Saturday, where we will FINALLY be able to settle. Somewhat. I feel like a vagabond right now. No real place to call my own. At least in Ellensburg we'll have a place that will feel like it's ours. Until Jeff and Valerie give us the boot. :) We've been doing this whole long distance relationship for a few weeks now. Needless to say, I am ready to be done. I like my husband, as mentioned in posts previous. So I'd rather be near than far. You feel me, right?
The sun is shining!! HALLELUJAH. I have been in need of some serious vitamin D lately. Yesterday and today have been a savior to my soul. I needed some yellow and blue in my life. Too much gray here lately.
I've started working out again and can I tell you how amazing I feel? Working out just makes life so much better. And I feel much more pretty, which is also good. :)
My car. Oh curse my car. It has been such a loyal little thing until recently. Christmas Eve, my window got smashed in due to my stupidity in leaving a jewelry box on the front seat. And my deductible on my insurance is such that it would have cost more to pay the deductible than to pay for the window myself. Darn you Progressive. Then, on a trip home from Ellensburg about a week ago, my car started acting really weird. RPM's all over the place, no response to my gas pedal. . . yeah, I was freakin out a little. Ok. A lot. A few tears were shed, then I took it in to the mechanic. Mass Airflow Sensors went ka-put. Darn you mass airflow sensors! Then my car started acting weird again. The next day. This time I had some cute little 4-letter words floating around my brain. (Scratch that, not so cute) The mechanics thought maybe it was my mass airflow sensors again. I had my doubts. Turns out I was right. It was a coil connecting to my spark plugs. So, the coil was bad and the spark plugs were bad. Tack on another cute little bill. Twice in one week! Darn you electrical coil and spark plugs! Since I have been nannying for the past 5 days, I haven't been driving Jorge, but she better be running well when I do start driving her again. (yes, it's a SHE and HER name is Jorge. Don't ask. I dunno why.) Anywho! She's been a little kick in the pants that Jorge. So, after taking her to the mechanic a 2nd time, we did what any rational couple would do. We went to Ford and test drove the new Ford Edge. And then drooled over the new 2010 Ford Taurus. What's that, you say? You haven't seen the new 2010 Ford Taurus? Do yourself a little favor and go here right now. And then drool with me. Cause it's pretty. Eye candy folks, eye candy.
So here I am, two kids eating toast, in my sweats, finally breathing again. Cause three are in school. Thank. Goodness. Now, if you will please excuse me, I have laundry, dishes, and kids to take care of. Oh and a shower will be worked in there somewhere. Hopefully.
