Let's Catch Up...

Where have I been?

Let's see...

My mom and I went to see The Lion King. Excellent. Would love to take Trey when he's older but if I were to take him today he'd be ready to go when he realized there would be no popcorn involved.


MOPS began again. Still cooking doing the books for them.

Attended three farewell parties for our bestestess friends as they are moving on to bigger and better things. Bigger church. Bigger paycheck. Bigger congregation. Bigger house. Bigger family (she's preggers with baby #3). This is the family we took to Vegas with us, the one who has the daughter that Trey will marry someday. The one that has the other daughter that my Leah proclaims loudly as her friend, which is amazing since Leah only says "Elmo, up, meow" and this little girl's name.

Trying to find just the right remedy of kid Tylenol and Triaminic to get rid of the incessant coughing and nose running going on with my little tax deductions.

Starting my taxes. Waiting patiently for my 1099 from PartyLite...ahem.
Rejoicing in the fact that the seven months that Bill spent in Iraq is tax free so his W-2 shows that we were po' last year.

Having a battle with what I thought was the beginning of the stomach flu in our household and then coming to the realization that it was food poisoning. Yay?

Dealing with my OCD about moving. We're 99% sure that the family that owns the house that we've been in for the last 2 1/2 years is moving back. This is great! No really, it is. They are our other bestestess friends, (besides Manda who is my other other bestestess friend) and they are slated to come back in May. This means we move back into military housing. It's been privatized on our base which is totally AWESOME! I've lived in military quarters twice before and this was the first time they didn't make me feel like pond scum walking into the office. The house is beautiful and all I want to do is look at floorplans and daydream about where all my stuff is going to fit. That leads me to my other past time this week of purging. I love to purge, I just wish I could make up my mind on what to do with it once I've decided to bless someone else with it.

I've been visiting everyone, but quietly. I guess I don't have much to say here lately.

Oh and by the way, to my cuz...

Happy Birthday! (one day late)

You need to check out It is a trading site local to your area. You can post things you are getting rid of on there...I love our freecycle group (416 strong) here in small town Texas!

Wow - Leah says meow??? Tyler just grunts. Like a pig.

Thank you for the birthday wishes. I had a good one. I was wondering where you'd been but was sure you had a good excuse. Have you checked your babies for allergies. I thought we'd been fight colds since Christmas but found out it's allergies. Just a thought. You'll have to let me know about that privatized housing. I've never heard of it. Well, thanks again for the happy birthday. I'll talk to you soon! Love and miss you all!
