Lisa, thanks for starting this weeks thread!! Of course we should still have an 'everything else' thread! I started the nursing one cause I don't always get to read and reply to this one at the same trip to the computer, so I didn't want to miss any nursing questions where I could be helpful! Or, if I had any questions LOL!
Well, Sunday was dh's birthday, and the poor guy worked 10 hours! But he'd asked me to bid on something on ebay for him, up to $16.50, and I got it for $6.00!! He was very happy, it's the part for his car that he's been waiting to buy. Once he has that part, he can put the car back together! Which is wonderful, because he just interviewed for a new job, and if he gets hired, we'll SO need that back up car. My car, 94 Tarus, has quite the oil leak, and even has oil in the radiator fluid (evidence of a blown head gasket....very tough and costly to repair...not worth it for this car) and my other car a 92 Cavilier...which is actually dh's...has been stripped on the inside, he was making a rally car out of it lol....was having problems with the RPM's....normally idling around 700 RPMs was at 1500 for a while, which was so bad for the car. Although it has over 200,000 miles on it, when it wants too, it runs beautifully. So thankfully he bought this 83 Datsun 280ZX, that when he bought it didn't run. He took out the security system, and it fired up. So he started replacing parts using E-bay, and some parts he had from his last car (Toyota Supra-87) and was just waiting for ONE part, the intercooler, and since they usually go for A LOT more that we can pay, it was the last part he was going to buy. Thankfully I got this part yesterday for I want to say $20.00 shipped!
SO..if the Cavilier keels over and he has this new job he can take the Datsun, and not my Tarus.
Then yesterday was my birthday! Dh took the day off, he'd overslept and woke up with a nasty sore throat, so he called in sick. Which meant I got to take care of renewing the car tags with just Kate. So I left here at about 11:15, got that taken care of, went next door from that office and signed up for the homestead exemption, which makes our property tax go from about 900 to about 500 next year. THANK GOD because that was just rediculous. After that I ran to Target to grab a shirt for me, and a few flannel blankets for Kate, then it was off to lunch with my mom. Mexican!!! YUMMY
Then I stopped back at her office with her, fed Kate, got the afidavits notarized (the ones I need to get Kate's birth certificate) so hopefully after dh makes a copy of his drivers license I can get her birth cert done by the end of the month!
LOL, I hit submit....like I was actually done rambeling? PUH-LEASE! I'm a little
today. I am with you guys on the more energy! Some days I have the energy, but don't want to go anywhere, so I use it to do laundry or dishes between nursing sessions. The days I DO feel like going somewhere,I feel so rushed when were out because Kate gets hungry, but is only half interested in eatting when we aren't at home, so it's frusterating to try to feed her. Today I need to put some stuff in the dryer, and make a trip to the grocery store...we bought a crock pot on Saturday, and I get to use it! LOL I burned our George Foreman grill, I'd stuck it in the oven the day of Jack's party cause it was dirty...and oops, turned on the Oven on Friday and melted it. So, now we have an indoor grill that we won't use this winter cause it smokes, but we DO have a crock pot
yippie! So I can throw stuff together in the morning, or have dh help me prepare it at night and throw it all in the pot in the morning and we'll actually eat the same dinner! LOL what a concept! I wish I could 'get it together' faster, but for some reason I just can't seem to juggle the two kids AND dinner with out one or both of the kids crying, or dinner burning. Unless of course dh is home, at which point I can hand the kids over, and when Kate needs to eat, hand dinner over!! Can I just say I love my hubby
LOL Ok I'm done talking ya'll ears off now.
