Course that's the way my friends treat me. Even Kim's "I'll call you right back", ends up being the next day or five hours later. Which by the way we have not had the gabfest because she didn't answer her phone and still hasn't answered her phone.
But life goes on and I still have my Grey's Anatomy. I didn't cry. I mean come on they are NOT going to kill off their main star, but I'm sure it got a big ratings boost. It was a good episode though.
Cleaned up Kelly's room and moved it around. Now she has more space to make a bigger mess. Actually let me clarify; it's not so much Kelly as it is Wyatt the Destructor. If only I could get that boy to pick up his messes. AAAkkkk. His room is still on the verge of chaos since we changed beds and moved it around. (side note) I should take pictures because I have some scrapbook stickers that would fit perfectly. Now I won't have till wait till they are older to use them.
Shoot I changed font colors and now I have screwed up the color on the blog. Sorry if you have any trouble reading this.
So on Saturday, rain or shine my hubby and brother are headed up to PHX to the checker,schucks, kragen nationals to see top fuel dragsters and funny cars. Now I could make a red neck joke but unless you have been there you cannot make a joke about watching a car go from zero to 300 in less than 6 seconds and feel the ground vibrate from the thrust of the engine. It is addicting and ear popping but sooo awesome to see these guys and gals thunder down the straightaway. Forget the beer and chicks in short tops, just think about all the power and and ....... it's just so cool to watch the big guys you only get to see on tv live and in person. Granted the crowds suck and I always got sunburned the 2 times we went but just the cars are cool.
SOOOO, the kiddos and I are hanging together on Saturday and as of right now we have no plans. hhuuummm, I'll have to get us out of the house. I'll think about this.
Have a good friday.
Carrie P.S. Aunt "flo" came to visit and that explains ALOT!!

Wyatt got moved into his own twin bed. thankfully he is sleeping in his own room instead of joining us most nights. We hope it continues this way.
typical stuff though with work and church. Had a pretty good family day on Monday with Rob home. Got lots accomplished.
Kim came home monday night and so far seems to be doing good. I plan on having a good ol gab session tomorrow.
I really don't know what to talk about tonight.
I had a minor meltdown before homegroup tonight. I went to pay a bill and was surprised on how much of our tax return is gone. Yes we did things on our list but I guess in part of my mind I still expect to see almost all of it still there. I mean we are okay, but the funds are dwindling down as we do the things we planned to do.
So after i saw that I had to run to the grocery store to get butter and fill the truck up with gas. That just compounded my freakout. more money gone. When I came home Rob asked me if I was all right and I just lost it. It was a good cry and I needed it. It's okay, I just had alot stored up and it hit the surface. To put it into some perspective; I started to tear up when the springer spaniel James won wesminster dog show last week. (no I'm not pregnant, maybe PMS)
So tomorrow people are coming into work to shoot a commercial. THANK GOD! I won't be in until the evening. It looks to be soooo stressful.
Our homegroup is going to start a new course for childrearing next week. Rob and I so need this. We actually started something to try out. I have a frame that we put the house rules and disciplinary action in. Once I get done I should take a picture for posterity. Rules: 1. no yelling, 2. no dirty or mean faces, 3. no back talk, 4. no throwing toys. Discipline 1. Warning 2. time out- nose to the wall (k-5 min. w-3min) 3. spanking. we are firm in our belief that as long as we follow these rules our kids will start to behave better. The course that we are starting in called, Making children mind without losing your by Dr. Kevin Leman.
I guess I had something to talk about afterall huh?

This week we got Wyatt a twin bed. yes he is 2 1/2 but since we got the bed he has stayed in his all night. way cool. But i had to put the toddler bed into storage. I didn't feel the need to cry. You would think I would be emotional, my baby growing up and passing into another stage. but I didn't. I didn't feel that would be the last time I would use the toddler bed. Are you getting my meaning. (I know I'm somewhat rambling).
Rob says that if I want another child that is alright with him. So the projected start date for "operation baby 3" is on our 10th anniversary in April.
So this is the depressed and planning stage, but also planning on how to spend tax return money. We hope to do some renovations on our bathroom and replace windows and now we need a new water heater. More planning. I can't find shoes that are cute and fit my big feet, depressed.
A happy thing is Kim just called and gave me the report on her CT scan. All the cancer is either shrunk or gone and though she still has 2 more treatments to go through her cervical tumor is almost completely gone. Now after the next 2 chemo treatments they (dr) want to do a bone marrow scan to see if there are any cancer cells in her body and then she may be in remission!! If she goes into remission she said they usually only do a check once a year. I asked if they could do it every three months. she laughed. I'm serious. I want to stay on top of this.
They are still talking about a GI scope but Kim is afraid because of the gastric that they might hurt her. so right now she is refusing unless it is an emergency.
Actually back to the planning stage. Mom and I are going to PHX in April. So I have been typing out all the products that we are looking for. Lots of paper and clear stamps. we are going with goals in mind and shopping like its hot!
Have a great weekend. I'm gonna go tax refund shopping!! hugs carrie
