Alrighty... so once again, life picked up and blogging got a little cast to the side. The truth of the matter is that I am only a quarter of a century old. The Organizational Force is not yet strong in me. Sit with Yoda I must.
Mama visiting was accomplished as usual. This too is an aspect of our life that has been improving. The Brat's relationship with his grandmother is evolving as he grows. Lately they've taken to reading together, which is a big deal since The Brat is still struggling with it. Lela, as his grandmother is affectionately called, is very proud of him.
Banking for the week has been accomplished. We're still in Beginning of the Month mode, so it's still important to plan and prioritize so that the end of the month isn't a tight mess. For example, tomorrow is food shopping day. Punky and I are off to our local BJ's to stock up on goods. Our savings have been put away, minus expenses for the upcoming trip to sleepy hollow, which should only be denting our wallets by about a hundred dollars for all three of us. My credit card balance has been paid off in full, which only tallied up to about eighty dollars, leaving a healthy amount in the bank.
Despite the sillyness of it, I still check CreditKarma everyday to see if my file has changed any. After all, all this saving and planning and whatnot is only the laying of the foundation for our future. It's a little exciting.
Over the weekend we picked up some sidewalk chalk to play with. Spring break is coming up for The Brat, and even though he'll be attending a week-long thing at his school, there'll still be time for playing with the parentals. Also, we picked up his yearly Easter basket at Kmart. It's us of course, so we broke it open and rearranged it. We're all about letting him hunt some Easter eggs, but we're not down with packing them all with candy. He gets a healthy dose of stickers and small toys and erasers. His teeth are important, we try to make sure he gets that.
Punky made him a cute countdown calendar for the kitchen with some of her scrap booking supplies and some construction paper. Now each day he let's us know how long until the Easter bunny arrives.
Did we mention at all that the kid's got glasses now? He's the cutest little hipster thing on the block with his converse frames and Shaun White skinny jeans and cute little shirts. Not to mention his leather jacket that gets him at least two compliments a day.
What else? Punky brought up the other night possibly finding her way back to witch craft. This is largely thanks to Aine of The Deepest Well and her awesome posts. Thank you ma'am! I hope Punky finds her way okay, even if she doesn't find all the answers.
Punky is also excited about Scream 4. This will be only the second time that we'll have had the luxury of seeing something at a theatre since the parenting trip began. Woohoo. Nachos and slurpees here I come. Also, Woohoo, Punky has lost three more pounds.
That's the big stuff, which isn't very big at all. I've been haunting peoples blogs again, lurking about and being me as usual. I've also been meaning to blog about a few other things, but I've sort of forgotten the faux names I've given to friends and neighbors to keep their anonymity. Might have to scroll backwards and figure that out.
Happy Spring Nights to all who stop by.. Lot's of love and good feelings..
P.S. - Someone remind me to blog about Mad Mad House and the many discussions it spawns. Also, Sister Wives.
