Birthdays Are Coming

My husband's birthday is coming up in a few weeks (after Father's Day) and we've been trying to find the perfect gift for him. The boys want a PS2 game, he needs new video cards, and I want to get him (us) a little get away downtown for the weekend. A weekend with room service and no there a better gift anywhere? Kate really wants to get him his favorite candy bar, Peanut Butter Cups, and I'm not too sure what Brett wants to get him. But before we can focus on birthday gifts, we have to get Father's Day out of the way!!

Poochy Tummy

We spent the afternoon at my in laws house with their swimming pool. I was surprised at how well my kids adjusted back into the "swimming scene", but mostly I was surprised by the little pooch in my tummy that is just a bit bigger than it was last year! Now that is just not acceptable, but understandable considering the fact that we pretty much hibernate during the winter months. But now it's time to find the top fat burners out there, and take care of this problem quickly!

Financial Control!!

June 21st brings the renewal of our car insurance. We've been with the same company for over 5 years, yet every 6 months the husband decides it's time to do an auto insurance comparison. Then inevitably, we renew with the same old company! It's like a little control dance we play every 6 months. I control the finances in the house, I pay the bills. But every so often he feels like he needs to dip his toe in and test the waters. Once he realizes that we are running like a well oiled machine, he takes his leave and the universe returns to it's normal, functioning self!

Still Moving??

We moved in to this house a couple of years ago, and did you know that there are still moving boxes in the basement? Still packed and unopened from the move. What's up with that?? This summer my goal is to get through the entire basement and get everything put together correctly. If the box hasn't been opened in 2 years, we must not need the contents!
