Ten Things Tuesday

  1. I know I haven't done one of these lately..partly because I'm slack..partly because sometimes I just don't want to and partly because I have a lot on my mind these days. 
  2. I'm not sure what's going on with me lately.  I can't seem to shake an almost depression-type feeling.  Not sure if it's because we've got a lot going on with trying to buy a house, plus work, plus life or what.  I go through spells. Just pray for me.  I definitely need it!
  3. On the bright side, my hubby won me a great pocketbook last week on G105.  He had no idea which one I wanted, just picked his baseball number..luckily, I love it!  Take a look.
  4. We're in the midst of preparing our budget at work.  Whoo!  It seems to get harder every year I do it, trying to balance everything.  Maybe that's my stress!:)
  5. Supposedly, we'll be able to sign a contract on the house this week.  I'm not holding my breath this time until I have signed papers in hand, with a closing date!
  6. My boys love competition..well, scratch that, they love to win (and fight) over everything.  The other night, they were fussing because the moon was in Nixon's window instead of Landon's.  I told them it was Jesus' moon, so it didn't matter.  When Landon got excited because it was in his car window, Nixon yelled, "That's Jesus' moon Nandon!"
  7. Nixon has hit an all-time high gear.  He's definitely all boy and makes up for anything that Landon lacked when he was smaller. 
  8. I'm wondering when this whole potty-training thing is going to click with Nixon.  He will go if you take him, but almost never will just mention that he has to go unless you're somewhere and he wants to check out the bathrooms.  Any suggestions??
  9. Landon started T-ball again last week.  He has two more practices and then his first game is on May 10th.  He's so excited.  Baseball is definitely his favorite sport so far. 
  10. Landon's T-ball team name is the Selma Grasshoppers!

Lainee Grace
The proud parents are Larry & Amanda E.   Amanda was my little sister in ZTA.  She's one of the few people from college I've actually been able to keep up with..mainly because she keeps up with me!  She's a great friend and I'm so excited she's a parent now so I'm not the one always telling stupid, adorable stories about my child!  Anyway, Lainee was born on April 8, weighing in at 7 lb, 13 oz and 20" long.  She's beautiful and I know they'll have trouble keeping the boys away one day.  Congratulations Larry & Amanda!  We love you guys!!!

Ten Things Tuesday

  1. We had a great weekend.  Way too short, even though I had Monday off!!
  2. We took our annual zoo trip on Good Friday.  The five mile road that leads into the zoo was back-to-back traffic the entire way!  Which is why Nixon looked like this on the way into the zoo...
  3. We finally bought a Wii.  We're addicted..and I mean Chris, Landon and me!  Landon absolutely loves the baseball and tennis.  Chris & I love the new Super Mario Bros.  I've yet to pull the Wii Fit out of the box!
  4. Landon asked me the other day, in front of about 3-5 people, why my belly is so fat.  After explaining that I guess I eat too much, he said, "Nope, you got a baby in there."  He's convinced.  We had to tell him not to go to school and tell people that!  Guess it's diet time again for me =)
  5. The next day he asked me if I was sad because I didn't have a baby girl.  I told him that sometimes I am, but I love him and Nixon too much to be sad.  He's such a sweetie!!
  6. April 15th can't get here soon enough.  That's when we'll know something more about this house we've been trying to buy since November!!
  7. Nixon has such a big attitude lately.  You can't tell him anything without him getting upset.  I think he was in the "sad seat" everyday last week at daycare!  What am I going to do in high school??
  8. We're still no closer to potty-training Nixon.  He could just care less!  I think we'll still be trying when he goes to kindergarten!
  9. I got my car waxed yesterday.  I know with the pollen it was probably pointless but the guy at the car wash told me it needed it like 6 months ago.  It looks so shiny and new!
  10. I absolutely love this warm weather.  I just can't get enough of it!
