No I haven’t posted in a while. No I haven’t gone to the gym, and no I haven’t done my laundry. Geesh, lay off it! Oddly, I haven’t felt like blogging. Not sure why, because I normally do enjoy it.
Brennen had his first flag football practice last night, it was cute. Mike and his friends Daniel and Carlos are coaching the team. It’ll be real interesting!
Zachary starts soccer on Saturday. When I was in high school, we didn’t have soccer. So when I moved to Colorado, I didn’t see the big deal. But I guess it is a big deal now. So we’ll try him out on it. The bad thing is, Bren’s games are Saturday at 8 AM, and Zachary’s are Saturday at 9 AM! So we’ll start out at the Middle school football practice field, and about 10 til, run up the road to the soccer field! It’ll be hectic, especially since I will have just gotten off Saturday at 7AM after working my 3 12 hour shifts!
Saturday night we took the bike out. It was fun, but gosh my ass hurts. Mike is trying to convince me to get a bike, which I don’t mind, but he wants me to get a crotch rocket like his. No thanks, I’d rather have a ‘normal’ bike! It won’t be anytime soon. We have too many payments as it is! We also took the boat out Sunday night, nothing exciting there, except the water was cold after all the Gustav rain.
We have looked at a few houses. Not that we are in a place to buy right now. But the ones we looked at are NICE! Brand new, gorgeous, CLEAN (lol), and out of our price range. I don’t see how we would be able to afford those house payments. Mike said his Realtor friend said our house appraises and WILL sell for about $20K more than we paid for it. I don’t agree with that! Anyways, if we DID put the house up for sale, it would require a ton of dump and purge of stuff in our house and a TON of cleaning and fixing things (like nicks and dents in the walls, thanks boys). We’ll see what happen as time goes. Mike’s Mom did buy a house in Louisiana, leaving us here with no family. I do like living here, love the lake and area. He doesn’t want to move to Colorado, because it’s too cold (duh), although I’d love to move to a small town like Windsor! I really don’t think I want to live in Louisiana, nothing against Cajuns or anything, I just don’t.
eBay. I have been buying and selling crap on eBay. My big purchase (besides Mike’s body kit for his bike, which reminds me to get pictures) is a high grade/resolution scanner. I plan on starting another blog, Six Degrees of Janet, which will have pictures that I have in a couple of boxes. Tons of people in those pictures, from high school, church camps, youth rallies, etc. Maybe you might find yourself in there!
Freecycle. Speaking of dump and purge. If you’ve never heard of freecycle, check out www.freecycle.org . Find your local group and join. It’s a great place (in most areas) to get rid of stuff, get stuff, and meet great community members. I have gotten many thing off there for free, including a large dog kennel, boat bumpers, etc. I have also given away stuff (a fridge, toys, clothes, etc). Try it!
The plan today. OMG. Laundry. So much laundry. I don’t know how we pile up so much laundry! The next time I come into a chunk of money, I will be buying one of those large capacity washer and dryers. No joke. I needs it!
Bachelors. Many of my friends have started their bachelor’s programs, or the pre-req’s for it. I wanted to wait until Timmy gets a bit bigger. But I don’t know. I really have the pre-req’s done, except for Chemistry and maybe a history class. I guess my 5 hours of Pilate’s don’t count. Darn. I’m wanting my Masters. I haven’t decided if I want to teach (no money, but love it), or work for a Doc as and APN (don’t want to take call). Who knows. I guess I should start paying on my current student loans first, eh?
Ok, time to do the laundry. Oh wait, the gym! I haven’t been in a week, those hurricane rains put me out for a bit. I have been eating healthy and less, so that helps!
