We had a horrible morning! I was literally getting Maggie and myself dressed in the kitchen while shoveling oatmeal and bananas into Baby Ellie. I brushed my teeth as we headed out the door. It seems we all got used to sleeping until 8:00 during that one week Winter hiatus from preschool!
All of the running around so that Muff could get to preschool and Baby Ellie could go to her "8 month well baby visit" (that's what I said when I scheduled the appointment) that isn't supposed to occur until she's 9 months old. Anyway, the doctor checked her ears and said that the fussing must be because of teething. I was relieved. We had a much better night last night.
After Ellie's appointment, my mom and I did a little shopping. We both bought one thing at H.obby Lobby. (And Tara, they have green tractor Easter baskets, as in John Deere green tractors!) Of course, I'll need to spend more money getting artificial something or other to go in my new ($7.50) thing. So frustrating what it costs for fake flowers and stuff.
After nap, I'm taking the girls to the grocery store so that we can pick up a few things in case we get the winter weather that may come this weekend. We're also going to the Library to return books and get a few more. We made the mistake of going after Storytime last week and I'm not doing that again.
On the bright side, me and the mommies are trying to get together soon. We've started saying things like "I love you" and signing emails with "xoxoxo" again so it's definitely time! I miss these girls so much! There's something that really bonds you about going through motherhood and pregnancies together. We have to find the time to get together with our kids in tow, of course! I swear, I'm busier as a mom than I was on my busiest, craziest day as a working woman.
And now, on the down side...I asked Big Daddy what he wanted for Valentine's day and he said, "Nothing. My credit card bill is $$$$. I just want to pay it and save money." Then he rambled something about tuition being expensive and those new tires on my SUV and I lost interest. Uggghhh. I guess that means that I shouldn't ask for perfume. I plan to treat myself sometime soon to a few girly pleasures like new make up and moisturizer...which I'll by with my money.
Any recommendations for good (cheap, maybe)moisturizers would be greatly appreciated. Maybe something in the anti-aging department. I'll be asking about hair color before you know it, since I pulled out gray hair number 2.
