Catch Up

I want to apologize to all two regular readers (I might have two...) for not updating. It's not that I don't have anything to say, I just haven't got any time in which to say it. Sorry.

This is just a quick note to let you know I am still here, and I really do want to post about stuffs. There have been several things I want to write about.

Monday was spent cleaning my boy's room. I have pictures. It was almost a whole day ordeal. I really don't care if his room is messy (I mean c'mon who am I to talk - my room was so messy as a kid my Dad finally threw ALL of my stuff out the back door to make me clean it...really!) It is his room. But when I can't get to the dresser to put stuff up (3 steps from the door, maybe) then we have a problem... So I told him we had to do it! That was as much a chore as the actual deed. But mission was accomplished!

I also had to go to the grocery store on Monday. I've gotten to where I dislike this chore anymore...load up the cart, wait forever to check out, rearrange the stuff the cashier puts in the bags - what kid of logic are they using anyways..? Frozen stuff in with magazines? Meat in with dry goods? I put everything on the belt the way I want it bagged, but does it get done that way..? Noooooo. I really prefer the self-scanners, then I can bag it how I want it, but the Walmart I've been going to doesn't have them, grrrrrr. I'll be glad when the one around the corner (YES! A Walmart within walking distance from home!) opens. I've heard June 11, and I'm counting the days.

So after doing all that, I have to load it into the cart again, now in bags, unload into the trunk, unload FROM the trunk and carry into the house, and then put it all away. Ugh. But, that mission too, was accomplished. Another supposed "day off".

Last night at Karate, he got another band on his belt (that's 4 ! ) and he graduated to a yellow belt! He also got a card, IN THE MAIL WOOHOOO! from one of the instructors saying what a good job he's been doing and keep up the good work. He was thrilled that he got mail, lemme tell ya! It now has a place of honor on his bedroom wall. No pics of that yet.

Ok, I think I've caught you up to date. Work has been crazy, the phones haven't stopped in two weeks, so I haven't been able to post from there, either : (

Okay, gotta get ready for work ewwwww.

see ya laterzzzzzz!



Looks like fun. You Did a great job. Go Mom!

Actually, he helped. That messy closet..? He did that all by himself, as well as helping with the rest of the room...he's not tricking me! Broken arm or no, it's his room, and he's helpin'! :)

Just wait till he's a teenager. I took a week to clear my son's room while he was on a school trip.

I do my grocery shopping every Monday. If the men from Mars ever arrive they'll think we're crazy the number of times our shopping has to be put in, taken out, moved on and so on...
