Just a little chatter

Yesterday was a really long day. I relatively good day, but long.

We started the day with facilitating our Financial Peace class- it was the first week. It went really well. I was so proud of E. He's not super comfy speaking in front of people (nor am I, but I'm more outgoing, and I think he did way better than me!) and he did so well! He's so articulate. I love that about him.

Then, we discussed what we're going to do with our saved money. Buy a jogger or a bed right now, then buy the latter later. Up until yesterday afternoon, I was all for buying a bed first, then a jogger later. However, after our afternoon walk (with our old jogger) I realized that the poor thing may not make it until "later". The wheels are squiggling all around moving directions they shouldn't move, A's seat is sagging (because the metal snapped in half- so the "frame" is under his neck instead of above his head) and the shade doesn't do a very good job. A cried most of our walk due to the sun in his eyes! Of course, we came to no conclusion. E decided it was up to me. Stinker.

Yesterday evening, we went to a new friend's house. I mentioned my friend Raechel in my last post. She's a friend from high school (as is her husband Ryan, and her sister Rebecca) who has been so inspirational to me lately. Anywho- she had a friend from church who moved down here to Huntsville a few months ago. This friend, Holly, and I have been trying to meet and get together for a few months now. Something always comes up. Sick kids, trips, dr. appointments, etc. Finally, our families got together at their place last night. It was so wonderful! It was like meeting people you've known for ages. Holly and I hit it off and I felt so comfortable with her. It was a wonderful evening, with only a few mishaps from the children (mostly mine...mostly Olivia...) Yay for fun family time together!

Well, despite our family outing that went into the wee hours of the night (read: 9 p.m.) our kids DID NOT sleep well. Olivia had a few night terrors, during which I finally had to yell at her for her to wake up and stop screaming! Austin kept waking up needing his paci. Needless to say, I am now enjoying a large cup of coffee.
