In, huuuuu. Out hooooooooo.

Ok so the economy is crazy.  And scary of you have two houses.  Boo:(   I just keep reminding myself to breathe.  We have been living on husband's income and paying the other house's mortgage with savings.  Eventhough there is plenty of savings right now, I am starting to freak out about the future.  What if we still have two houses next year...brb..........
ok I'm back I almost threw up at the idea of having two houses next....brb...
Anyway, so we did a new budget and realized that if we get rid of all of the extras like cable, internet, garbage service, restaurants, etc. we can actually pay both house payments.   So bye-bye extras.  I would much rather be without extras than to be freaking out all the time about money.

Here's to hoping a neighbor has wireless internet!

I am in this weird in-between place. I don't have a ton in common with my friends anymore. I am a stay-at-home mom and have very few friends with babies. I used to think that there was disconnect because I lived inconveniently far away. But after moving I am realizing that it is more about being in a different life stage. I just started going to a mom's group so I know that soon I will have more mommy friends, right now is a little lonely though. Not physically lonely because there are people around but soul lonely. Ok, not actually as dramatic as it sounds, this is the only way I know how to describe it.

On a lighter note, shoes are very important in our house right now. The kid loves to say "shoe" and if he brings you a pair that will fit your feet, you must put them on or the world may end. Also, if he brings his own shoes to you, you must put them on him, or the world may end. The shiny ones are his favorite.

Dear Democrats,

After reading some of my usual blogs and just existing in this country I felt it necessary to send you a note. I consider myself a conservative but not a die hard republican. If I had been old enough to vote for Clinton, I would have when he ran. Anyway, that is neither here nor there. The point that I would like to make is that even though I usually vote republican, not all who lean republican or even call themselves republicans are monsters.
I am not particularly interested in watching the DNC or the RNC because it is frankly people trashing each other while a crowd cheers them on. I haven't been into that since 8th grade. I am more interested in the debates. I have tried a few times to watch the conventions (both conventions) but turned them off because the nauseous feeling was forcing me to throw up a little in my mouth(both conventions).
Last night while Rudy Giuliani was speaking, the crowd began to chant, "drill baby drill!" ARE YOU KIDDING ME! Even if someone agreed with all of the drilling proposals wouldn't you think it would be a reluctant agreement? Or at least not thrilled by the idea?
So, for the record, not all conservatives are wacko.
That is all.

Full Belly

Lunch was "all gone", except for the crumbly remains of a few animal cracker legs. He's cruel that way.

Pass the Tissues

So I've been working on my son's baby book. Yes, he is 15 months and I've barely even started. My future kids will be lucky to even have pics of them taken. Anyway, while looking through pics I found three wedding pics that were very similar. These photos are of (in my opinion) the best part of the wedding. There is nothing as beautiful as when a man puts aside any macho ego he may have and soaks in the beauty of his bride. These pics are a little blurry, probably because I took them while on my tippy toes, around somebody's hair and in full zoom. That's how much I love this moment. Anyway, hopefully you can see the beauty of the moment through the blur.
