I have been really bad about blogging these days. I just found out why........Everytime I sit down to do anything on the computer, Zach comes over and starts pounding on my keys and wanting my attention. UGH......I have already typed this portion of the blog a couple of times.
Not much to report around here. Things have been boring. Lots of rain which keeps me inside because of the mud and the cold. The kids have found they like mud. Of course they like mud, I loved making mud pies and serving them up to anyone who would let me. Mommy doesn't like the mud so much anymore. Its just another mess to clean up around here.
The whole family is getting over a cold. Everyone has a nasty cough and feeling "disconnected". Zach's cough is pretty bad and I feel for the little guy, especially at night. He won't take any meds so he lays there and coughs all night. But he seems to be getting the sleep he needs. Zoey doesn't like to go to bed until very late. Last night it was past 1am before I think she fell asleep. But she is sleeping in till 9 or 10 am. So she too is getting the sleep she needs, just not when mommy wants her to.
We have a busy fun filled 3 weeks coming up. This weekend a friends birthday party and the kids first Hockey game. The Colorado Avalanche vs. Phoenix Coyotes. It is kind of a tradition for us to attend this game. I love to cheer against Jeff's teams when they play my teams. And every time the Avs come to town, they lose against the Coyotes. I don't know why but I like to think I bring the Coyotes luck!!!!! We asked the kids who they wanted to win---Zoey said Avalanche---Zach said I don't know. Haha. I am hoping that at least of my kids will cheer with me but daddy can be very persuasive. I will update with pictures after the game.
Then next weekend is even busier.....I host Bunco this month so there will be at least 12 crazy women in this house!! Then I have a bridal shower to go to for Berrinda and then Easter. All should be fun!
The next weekend is our 5 year wedding anniversary. I say this all the time but boy time sure flies. Jeff and I would like to take a vacation out of the country every five years for our anniversary, not sure that will happen this year but we are working on some kind of vacation just him and I. We sure do need it. I am thankful for my husband. Is a great man and keeps me together. I am not sure where I would be without him but I know I couldn't do what I do without him. He is a great father and inspires me to be who I am and want to be more. Gag......getting all mushy on you.....anyway, we plan to have dinner at least. Then head to the Wildlife World Zoo and Aquarium in West Phoenix. I know the kids will love the Aquarium. Then maybe some gold for Jeff and some shopping for me with the kids.
Then it is Berrindas wedding. This should be a fun event for the whole family. I got my bridesmaid dress this past week and I love it. It makes me look so skinny!!! We got the kids some really cute outfits for the wedding so they will look just as good as me, well probably better!!!!
That is our last event planned as of now...but that takes us into the 3rd weekend in April. By that time I am sure it will be time to shop for some swim suits and start playing in the pool! My favorite time of year is approaching and when it gets here I will regret it and want to move. It happens every year. I can't wait for the heat, then I can't wait for the winter.
I have been using coupons now for about a year, I think. I always get good deals but this past week I was very excited about my savings. I saved 51% on my bill, I spent $101 and saved $103. This is the best I have been able to do in months.....And the best part is that everything I bought, we really do eat. Ha...it seems strange for me to be telling you all about my savings!!! Well that's my life...kids and saving money!
