it’s been awhile

Posted: 06/27/2008 in Uncategorized

i know it’s been since monday, i think. this week has been very busy, but still under normal circumstances i would  still made time to blog. this week has been especially hard in a lot of areas. some are appropriate to talk about on here and others not. so even though i only mention a few things, know that’s not the whole of it and it really has been a hard week.

the good news- we got my car back on wednesday! i’m glad i didn’t have to write the check. it would have been really hard for me to spend all that money and it feels like on nothing because i didn’t see anything! but the tires are shredded on my car. you can see the threads. *sigh* pretty sure i was pregnant when we bought another set of NEW 100,000 mile (getting less than 20,000 out of them for the second time) tires. so after much frustration we decided to call spilmans for tires, and they got us 4 tires with 3/4 tread still on them for $15 a piece. LOL i don’t know tires, but that feels like a royal steal since a set is costing us $60 and new a set was $330. so monday my car goes back in the shop for new tires, an alignment and balance. i’m so tired of spending money on it, but eric is even more tired. it’s really difficult to have any motivation to work when it’s going out faster than it’s coming in, in large amounts! and calling people to get everything lined up is frustrating too!

my cell has gone south! the speaker is broke. saturday it was so bad i couldn’t make any calls or receive any calls. but now for some reason it works the majority of the time. but sometimes when i try to call out (1 out of 3 tries) it counts like the convo has started but i can’t hear anything, but they can hear me! very frustrating! so maybe now that we feel better about the tires not costing $500 dollars after balance, etc. we can buy me a new phone! i’m still extremely sad though- no computer in sight for me. i want a house and land! i pick those things! savings is more important right now! maybe after the church hires a full time/permanent secretary, we will buy a computer. but i feel like i don’t know how long i will be getting a pay check so i don’t want to spend the money unless we have met our savings goal while i am working- make sense?!

well lizzie has been changing so much lately. she’s a chub at close to 17lbs! LOL i know, skinny ol’ lizzie ain’t so skinny anymore!! my arms hurt! but what a blessing!!!!!! 

she likes to pull herself up onto you and anything else at ‘lizzie height’.

she likes to hold on to two of my thumbs, but only until she gets balanced and then she holds onto 1 thumb while taking 10-15 steps.

she rolls clear across the living room from one end to the other.

she scoots backwards for an eternity it seems like.

she scoots in a full circle.

she can maneuver about in about a 2 square yard by herself.

i can get her giggling uncontrollable for no reason by just starting to laugh  myself. lol i love it!

she has decided that the car seat isn’t from you-know-where as long as she has a napkin to shredd and a book to read and her fav cd playing. 

she can hold the sippy herself to drink out of while laying down but not sitting up. it was laying next to her and she rolled over, got the cup, rolled back and when eric and i looked down she was drinking it. i wonder what else she knows how to do but not doing.

she signs, more, all-done, and nursey.

    i don’t know where you guys do your tire service, but just as an fyi, we’ve had great luck with bloomfield tire (the older building behind pizza hut, not the newer one behind pamida). we’ve dealt with them since we moved here & my dad deals with them all the time for modot. they just seem very fair and easy to work with & their prices are real reasonable (except for the fact that the tires on that stupid blazer are such weird, big tires that they are over $100 each no matter where you go!). just thought you might want to store them away in your bank of knowledge for the future.
