Randompalooza

(Thank you B-Rob for that title)

* I’m researching French immersion classes for the girls. Realizing I’m going to have to sell one of them to afford it.

* I’ve placed myself on a strict diet…of spending, that is. No personal spending in January. This is to make up for what I overspent in December and to start saving for Europe.

*Therefore, I cannot get those cool thermals that everyone is recommending to me until February. And even then I’ll have to see how much spending money I’ve allowed myself for the month.

*I hate starvation spending.

* Ashlyn didn’t even taste her dinner last night and so she is eating it for breakfast. We are mean like that. She will not win that battle though. Obstinance gets you nothing but trouble here.

* Getting my girls to move with a purpose is maybe just a little bit easier than herding cats. Or shoving toothpaste back into the tube.

*Having Reagan do her chores without reminders is just a little bit harder than herding cats or shoving toothpaste back into the tube.

*I have never tried to herd cats or shove toothpaste back into the tube, but I’ve heard that both are next to impossible.

  1. We’re doing no spending this month. As we’re going to Disney World in early March and that place is so captive, I might as well be bending over in the shower of a county jail.

    Ew.
    But true.

    p.s. Last night Libbey didn’t eat enough of her supper to satisfy us. She went to bed hungry, begging for a snack, with both Scott and I telling her, “If you tell Nanna that we sent you to bed hungry, you won’t be able to sit down for a week.” Parents of the year.

    She ate EVERY crumb of her breakfast this morning. We win.
