Nothing Too Exciting....

Random tidbits about last night:

-I’m up for bad mother of the year again (watch out all you competitors) because last night was my daughter’s second (her first was way back 1 ½ years ago) night of gymnastics. We signed her up for the local rec class (which as a prior gymnast killed me because she should be at a big gym with real balance beams and bars and trampolines! But this class is $35 as opposed to $170). Why I am up for the award? I forgot my memory card at work. I had used it to post the pictures yesterday and I didn’t bring my computer home. I will just have to take pictures next week.

-She was so excited about the class until she went to run with everyone and she had a complete meltdown. As I’m sure you can tell from my previous posts we don’t tolerate this so we started putting on our coats to leave and I told her we would not come back to the other classes if she didn’t go out there and participate. She changed her attitude right around and joined in with the other kids and had a smile on her face the rest of the ½ hour class.

-We then went to watch hubby’s flag football game. I hate football. I hate men pretending they’re still in college playing fake football even more. But I AM a supporting wife, and my son LOVES football! All was going well until my daughter said she had to go potty, really badly. So I load my son up and we walk down the 30 stairs to the first level where the bathroom was and after 10 minutes in there realized that she had bad diarrhea. We spent about 30 minutes of the 60 minute game in the bathroom. The worst part is that there wasn’t anyone else there that could watch my son, so he always had to go with us and trying to occupy a 19 month-old in the bathroom is not very easy! I do have to admit though, he was much better than he could have been!

-At home hubby gave the kids a bath while I got to watch 15 minutes of Grey’s Anatomy from about 1 month ago. Then my daughter came down and we snuggled on the floor in front of the fire and watched…what else? Doodlebops :)

That’s about it, nothing exciting…oh, yesterday I did go to Pier 1 to buy some things for the house with a coupon and my gift card from Christmas…I got $210 worth of stuff for $70! I’m trying so hard to make our new house feel homier, but it’s not easy, especially for me who is lacking the creative design genes.

Love me some Pier 1!! I, too,lack that gene. I guess it could be worse....

I lack that gene too! It's kinda sad. Although, if I had more money, I could probably put something together.

But you remembered to TAKE the pictures, right? So you're doing better than me most of the time!

Oh I see, you took some BEFORE.

Well still. You're doing better than me. :)

I am so glad my husband is missing the sports gene.
I think maybe I could decorate but who the hell has time? I just stick candles everywhere and stink it up!
