Maybe someday I will get the Internet. But for now we are putting our hardwood flooring in and we are almost 1/2 done with one room. We have 3 1/2 to go. It is so fun let me tell you. The kiddos were the three blind mice for Halloween and so very cute. They had a great time getting candy.

First Food

A couple of weeks ago we gave Tiny his first bites of food. Usually I like to wait until they are a little older, but he is so big. (And he bites me) So his first food was rice cereal, not sure he liked that so much. So yesterday we gave him bananas. He ate almost half of it. Today Sam gave him the other half of the banana. I just think that is a ton for it really being the first thing he has eaten. What a little piggy. He his so cute though.

I hate car problems

The other day I loaded my little people into the car and headed over to my house. When I was about half way there my van started to shake and a light came on. So I kind of freaked out and pulled off the road. I decided to take it to a shop and so it ended up at Pep Boys. The nice 12 year old boy that worked there reminded my that it would cost me $90 for a diagnostic. Fine, whatever it takes. So Mary comes to get me and I load the girls up with her and I take Tiny. We were having a carpet guy come after the window guy that I was already missing. So I finally made it to my house and about 30 minutes later the guy called and informed me that nothing was wrong with my van and I only had to pay 86 cents, just my parking break was on. What!?!?! How could I have done that? So When I got back to my in-laws I was telling the story and how embarrassed I was that I did that, and guess what. I didn't do it, Mary was the last one to drive my van. It did make me feel a bit better knowing that I didn't do it.

Hello, anyone there?

Has anyone had a similar experience?? I had never had one until yesterday.

I went to Target that I was not familiar with and I finally found a little worker lady.

I asked, "Do you know where I could find lighters, you know the long ones?"

Lady said as she points, "Um, um I know we have matches over by the charcoal."

So I look where she points and then turn back and say, "I need a lighter."

Lady then points to some regular Bic lighters and says, "We have Bic ones right there."

So I look and say, "Yes, but I need a long one."

Lady throws her arms in the air and says, "I don't know where they are, I just don't know where they are," as she backs away from me.

I walked away dumbfounded at what had just transpired. Who acts like that. All I wanted was pointed in the right direction.
