Random Updates

Not much to say but will give some updates as to what has been happening this week

Ugh…. The last couple of weeks have literally drug!!!!!!!  I have no motivation, hence the lack of posts.  I have no desire to do anything.  My house always seems like it is in shambles anymore and I don’t even care!  I will get this urge to clean and get it cleaned up but the min it starts getting messy, I have no desire or energy to stay on top of it!!!!!!!  Isn’t that horrible!!!!!  I am hoping it will pass soon and I will regain some energy.  If anyone out there knows some simple tricks for a working mom, let me know!
Jocelyn was diagnosed with bronchitis on Monday this week.  So it was back to breathing treatments and the Z-pack!  I was actually amazed at how quickly she cleared up (Full nights sleep the last 2 nights!) but the doc did say she was in the early stages.  It hadn’t fully settled in her chest yet.
Corbyn has had only one day of school this week!!!!!  At this rate we are already going till June 9th I think.  It is actually ridiculous.  They have closed a lot this winter when there was no reason but oh well, out of my hands!  We have had some nasty weather this week.  A bunch of snow earlier this week then ice in the middle of the week and then got another 4-6” last night.  Definitely ready for spring around here!
On a happy note, I finally made up my mind and took the plunge with ordering my very first OWN laptop!  I am so happy and excited to play with it this weekend!  I got a really good deal on it; it is a lot of hard drive and memory for the same price as the smaller machines.  I am very happy that I held out, did my homework and shopped around!
Been looking into some different ideas on budgeting lately.  We have been doing so well lately and I am very proud of us but would like to work towards being debt free and building up a savings.  I know this is a personal topic and don’t want to get into numbers but if anyone has any tips that are helping you or suggestions, I am all ears.  If you would rather not, I completely understand!
Trying to figure out some menus for this weekend, I really just want a day to just be at home in jammies all day tomorrow but have a feeling, unless I can talk hubby into doing it after our plans tonight, I will be getting out to get some groceries.  Some things on the mind: potato soup, loaded baked potatoes, French bread pizza, ham and homemade mac and cheese, nachos, hot fudge pudding…. IDK, I will see what I come up with!  Hope everyone has a good weekend and maybe I will get on to load some pics with my new computer this weekend ;) J

Weekend Recap and Laptop Shopping

Wow, it has been awhile since my last post!  Nothing major going on here.  The last few weeks seem to have DRUG so bad!!!!!!  I hate weeks like that, I have no motivation, it seems like the weekend never gets here and then it is gone just like that, basically just a blah feeling.  Oh well, Spring is just around the corner and I know everything will kick into overdrive at that point so might as well enjoy the down time, which I do love btw!

This weekend was a good weekend!  We had dinner with some friends from church Friday evening and then Saturday Andy and the kids got up and I slept in for a little.  They left the house and did some running and I took a shower and got ready and then did up the dishes, swept floors, cleaned the bathroom, etc…  It was so nice to do all of that in peace and quiet!  Then my mom and her boyfriend came and picked me up and we headed to Ft. Wayne to do some belated birthday shopping!  It was a really good day!!!!!  I got some new shoes (1st pair of Pumas ever!), a few new shirts, a starbucks, lunch and then bought some material at JoAnn Fabrics to make Jocelyn and her friends some skirts out of jeans.  All in all it was a good day! 

Yesterday we went to church and had a really good service!!!!  Then went to Golden Corral for lunch.  Came home and Jocelyn and I laid down to watch a movie and took naps then went back to church last night and had another really good service!  Hubby preached a really good message on how important having faith and trust Jesus Christ is.  Afterwards we went to the store and got a few things.  Came home and Andy and Corbyn made some hot ham sandwiches before bed and Jocelyn and I had popcorn and orange floats!  Yum!

Then the coughing starts….. ugh, I feel so bad for Jocelyn. She has had this cold/cough for a week now and it just won’t go away!  We ended up giving her a breathing treatment at 3 am cause she was really starting to wheeze and rattle.  Hubby decided to take at least the morning off and take her to the Dr. to see if there is anything more we can do for her.  She isn’t running a temp but she is drinking a lot and doesn’t hardly eat anything of substance anymore….  Hopefully we can get it solved!

Now my big challenge I am dealing with…..buying myself a laptop!!!!!!!  Ugh, there are so many brands and kinds.  So many options and prices.  I am so afraid of making the wrong decision.  Oh well, I will keep shopping I guess.  If you have any suggestions or if you have a laptop and want to give advice about it, I am open to anything!  Thanks and have a good week!
