Lawdy I'm tired today. Could not fall asleep last night, was close to midnight the last time I looked at the clock. Could be because I slept in the car on the way home from Auburn yesterday, where we went to check out possible future digs. *sigh* I don't know if this will happen or not, but we could know as early as Friday if we will be moving out there. There are pros and cons and what ifs to think about and obsess over, but the bottom line is that we need to move. now.
Friday night was spent with Aaron's side of the family, as Friday was the first anniversary of his father's passing. It was a happy occasion, which was nice, as it seemed everyone was celebrating his life. Saturday we went to Kylie's 4th birthday party, that was fun, I got to see some family that lives on the other side of the state, and some that lives in Canada. It was great to hang out and chat. Plus we got to see Matt and Kelly which is always nice, as we don't get to see them much at all.
We had already asked Lori to be our son's Godmother, and asked Matt on Saturday when we saw him at the party. He said he'd be honored, and now all that's left is to ask Aaron's cousin Mike and his fiance'. We were supposed to go have dinner with Wili and Elizabeth after the party, but I was exhausted and not feeling well, so we took a rain check. I had had some digestive issues all day and was feeling uncomfortable at best.
Sunday we drove down to Tacoma to look at a house I hoped to hate, and thankfully I did. I just didn't want to move that far south... luckily it was in a shitty neighborhood, so we drove back up to Fife and went to look at some other options, ended up spending about 3 hours or so looking at floor plans and filling out paper work and yadda yadda yadda... and putting down 500 bucks in earnest money ... this shit is happening, and it's real and it's scary and I really hope we get approved! (too bad the floor plan I REALLY want is too much money. *sigh* it's always something though isn't it?) Then we drove out to look at neighborhoods in Auburn, and I was done at that point, so I laid my seat back and slept until we pulled up to the grocery store near home.
I might beg the question here... what is the fucking point of working on a grocery list for a damn week and then losing it? I hate the in between stops at the store between pay days because you end up spending more money than is necessary on shit you don't *really* need. But I forgot breathe right strips and spaghetti squash so I'm going to have to hit the store again at some point.
Speaking of spaghetti squash, whenever I make spaghetti, I make Aaron noodles and I have the squash. (There is no WAY he'll even consider eating the squash.) He always inspects his to make sure it's noodles and not the squash, it kills me. And if I ask him how it tastes, sometimes he'll look at me suspiciously and say 'why'?
Let's see... what else...How about some pictures to tide y'all over until the next time I get around to updating...
One of the perks of an early morning commute.
The heat meister
I believe I actually said to Aaron "if our kid is half as cute as Ben then we've got it made." heh... seriously, could you not eat him up here?
I just love this picture of Kylie with her cake... the look on her face says it all.
