Back in Business!

Okay, so Aaron broke the power cord to my laptop so I haven't been able to get on the computer foreverrrrr so I feel so out of the loop! I had like 50 emails to catch up on and I feel like I have missed out on so much with reading everyones blogs! I swear I'm having withdrawals. I'm trying to think of what you guys have missed, too.....hmmmmm.

Aaron and Whitney bonked heads and Aaron got a nice black eye...I forgot to take pictures...but he looked pretty cute. Little tough boy.

Whitney started swimming lessons and they're almost over. The poor kid can't even blow bubbles in the water yet...but it's not really her fault because there are like 20 kids in her class so she basically just hangs on to the wall for an hour until the teacher gets to her to help her learn to kick her legs while her teacher floats her around for a minute. Oh well...it's been fun to get out every afternoon, though. Plus, there are some of my friends in the ward who's kids are in swimming lessons too, so I get to sit and chat with them while Whitney's hanging on to the side of the pool (which she seems to do pretty happily). It's been pretty good and I think I've done a pretty good job about not being hysterical with Aaron running around this gigantic pool. Well, I don't think I've lead anyone on that secretly I'm a nervous wreck who seriously thought about bringing Aaron in a life vest every day....

I got strep throat last weekend...that was interesting....and (knock on wood....or particle board) nobody else has gotten it!

We got our van fixed....and now when we turn on the air conditioning there isn't this horrible grinding and vibrating from somewhere inside the van! Yaaaaay!

Mike let us do a little bit of landscaping in our front yard...I'll have to get some pictures! Basically we just put the edging bricks around our tree and little bushy area in front and put down some mulch. It looks sooooooo much better!!! I've been wanting to do this forever!

Ummmm....our dishwasher stopped working...our washing machine keeps leaving puddles after I do loads of laundry and our water heater started spraying out water all over our attic which started dripping through our kitchen ceiling...and one of our showers and toilets won't drain....

I went to the midnight showing of the new Indiana Jones movie last night with some of the youth from church and my friend Tere (we were technically the chaperons but I had soooo much fun and felt like an individual again!) By the way....the movie was pretty disappointing. Who knew the ancient ruins of South America were made by Aliens!?! And there are fire ants the size of wolf spiders who eat people alive? And monkeys that teach boys to swing on vines to catch up with a nice amphibious vehicle chase through the jungle? (I'm sure they'll be sued by Tarzan some day)

And I have recently become addicted to Gilmore Girls. My friend Heather started me on the first season and I am absolutely loving it!!! I'm excited for Season 2!

Well, that's about all I can think of at the moment....three hours of sleep are finally catching up to me! And...sadly....I know that when Mike leaves for Kenpo tonight, instead of going to bed early and getting a good nights sleep (or catching up on the 3 loads of dishes that are piled up in our sink and counter from the broken dishwasher that is now fixed that I just dread getting around to...) I will be popping popcorn and cuddling up with a blanket and finishing my last disc of Gilmore Girls from season one. I can't wait!

8 people leaving some love!:

Sheesh, Nat. you have had quite the 3 weeks since you last blogged. If it were me, I'd want to crawl under a blanket and not come out for a few days, either!

I'm glad you like gilmore girls it is the only thing that has kept me somewhat sane since t.j. was born. Some days all i do during nap time is sit and watch as many episodes as i can. (My mom bought me them all so she can watch them.) I'm sorry your life has been so crazy there has to be something we can do to make everything slow down!!!!!
