Sunday Randoms

I have been so bad about writing recently, but the only person I have to be sorry to is myself since this is my journal of my life.

- Xander and I were outside in the backyard yesterday, he playing in his new pool and me trying to get some sun.  Let's just say I got a little too much.  I'm not badly burned but a little pink.  The kiddo is good since I put sunscreen all over him.

- I finally started working on my two project life kits.  I bought one to use for last year and one for this year.  I had a ton of pictures from last year and a lot of ideas for the layouts, but just haven't had the time to get to it.  I am way behind this year, but love the simplicity of the format so I should be able to catch up quickly, especially since I have a week of vacation at the end of the month (actually longer than a week). 

- Speaking of my vacation, I am debating about whether or not I should head back to Nebraska for part of the time off.  I keep going back and forth.  On the one hand, I love seeing family and it is always relaxing to be a guest at someone else's house instead of always worrying about your own house.  On the other hand, I could get SO much more done if I stay home the whole time including lots of rest, several house projects, lots of scrapbooking and lots of one on one time with Xander which is so important.  I think I need to do a good old fashioned pro and con list to figure it out!

- My job is getting better after being so crazy and stressful for the last 6 months.  I have actually had the last two weekends off in a row and my job is supposed to be Monday - Friday!  I have worked so many weekends I have lost count.  I shouldn't complain because I have a good job that pays well, but I guess I didn't realize that I would work quite so much.  Anyway, we have a new guy and he is doing awesome and making my job so much easier.  I think the job will finally be what it should be within another month or so when everything is back to normal.

- It is may 6th and I still haven't painted my toenails yet!  I am not a big fan of pedicures, mostly because I don't have the time for them and I don't like paying for them, but normally I do my own toes.  It is on the agenda for today.

- I'm a little frustrated that my almost 3 1/2 year old still isn't fully potty trained.  He does good for the most part and pretty much stays dry/clean all day at daycare.  He actually struggles more at home in the evenings and on weekends.  I know he will fully get it eventually, but man I wish it was over.

- I need a new car!  Ok, not really, but I really want want!  I could go on and on about why I want/think I need a new car, but really, I just want a different type, not just a new one.  We have two cars and we really want an SUV.  There are so many things we can't fit in our cars that we should be able to if we get an SUV.

- I joined Weight Watchers a week ago.  My second weigh in, the scale said I was down 5.2 pounds.  Not sure how that is possible as I had a horrible first week, but I will take it!  I am already struggling again this week, but am committed to do better than last week (not weight loss wise, just eating better).  I also have to get the motivation to start working out again!

- My iPhone had a decent crack in it, but I took it to the Apple store and they replaced it for me for free!  I was so excited since this was my first phone and I had it for about 6 months and got the crack within the first week I had it.  I'm not sure why they replaced it free, but I was thrilled they did!  So now I just have to order a better case for it so I don't crack it again!

- It's pretty sad when you know all of the words to all of the songs on the Nick Jr. channel.  I wonder if my kiddo watches too many cartoons????  :)

- I got Invisalign on my teeth (invisible braces) a little over a month ago.  It's going pretty well with minimal pain and I am just trying to be patient with it realizing that the results will take a while.  But I am thrilled to know that by Christmas I will have pretty teeth for the first time in my life!  Some people said my teeth weren't that bad and they weren't compared to what they could have been, but I didn't like them and was always self conscious of them.  After this is done, I won't be!  I got to see the scan of what my teeth should look like at the end and I'm so excited!!

- I got a new Coach purse a week or so ago.  I hadn't bought one in a while and it is always fun to get something new!  I love the new purse I got and it is exactly what I wanted.  I am pretty picky with purses and only want certain styles and colors and I am happy with my choice.  I feel like I have to make a good choice every time because I carry the same purse for a long time and use it to death!

- That's all I got.  There isn't too much exciting going on now, but I am pretty sure this summer will be awesome.  I have a lot of plans and ideas and hoping I can make it a super fun/memorable summer.
