Thankful for: MY NEW VAN!!!! And of course, my fabulous, wonderful, and oh-so-sexy insurance agent who worked his magic and even though we added a van that was 10 years newer and worth five times as much as my old one, we are only paying $7 more a month in insurance. Oh, yeah, he's that good. And only I can say he's sexy. Well, I guess I can't stop you if you decide to call him that, too, but he is my husband.
Listening to: The Little Einsteins. I know it's a real animal, but I always crack up when I hear "baby boobie bird." I can't help it, the teenager in me snickers a little every time.
Looking forward to: The Christmas season! Oh, the Santa Train, the Lights of Christmas, getting our tree, everything. I love it. The kids and I have been singing "Baby it's Cold Outside" for the last week or so. Emma does the Sammy Davis Jr. part and I sing the Carmen McRae part. The boys jump in wherever they see fit. It's awesome.
I am needing or wanting: A maid. That would make my life a lot easier. I can barely keep up with all the pee on the bathroom floor.
Missing: Still missing my tennis shoe. Which is such a bummer this time of year. I want my tennis shoe back! I finally took everything out of my closet, and no shoe. Everything from under the bed, no shoe. Where in the world is my shoe?!?
Quote of the week: From Grant: "Mommy, I, one time, ran Lightning McQueen on your van, an' then Lightning McQueen get-ed taken away. I missed him, an' so I prayed for him, an' he came-ded back! An' I not run Lightning McQueen on your van anymore." (WooHoo! He's learning!! And is it not adorable that my two year old prayed for his toy? I love it!)
