She's Blogging...could it be?

I am on Jeremy's laptop because our computer is broken...AGAIN! Our computer is over at Ameet's house getting fixed. For the past 2 months, we have been using Jessenia's computer. She & Abuelo tried to get on it on Tuesday, and it wouldn't turn on. . . completely dead. Jeremy and I tried to get it to turn on and nothing. I feel so badly, but it wasn't like we intentionally got the computer to stop working. I don't even upload that many pictures or videos and when I do, I upload them to my Kodak Gallery and a CD and then erase them.
It is so frustrating not to have a connection to the world. How did we ever live 20 years ago? No cell phones and no Internet - too weird! Anyway, just saying that makes me think that I need a vacation to "disconnect" from the world for a few days. I was seriously having computer withdrawals!

Our week was good...
We spent the beginning of the week with Abuelo doing fun stuff. We hung out, went to eat a few times, went to the mall, played outside, he got Jaydon to ride his bike for a bit. We are pushing the no training wheels thing, and hopefully, he'll get that soon. He's really sort of lazy when it comes to that. He likes being outside ONLY when it's to do something that HE wants to do. I realize it's 200ยบ outside, so I do sympathize with him. He does much better in the Spring and Fall months.
Of course Jaydon was stuck to Abuelo like a piece of gum on the bottom of your shoe, and he was upset to see him go. He didn't cry this time like he usually does which just means that he is growing up, and understanding that he'll get to see him again soon.

I spent all day Friday cleaning. It just seems like the toys never end. As much as I have tried cleaning the toy box, it just grows again within months. Jaydon still has a few things under his bed from his birthday (he's a NOVEMBER birthday) and from Christmas that haven't been opened. I honestly think that I may save some of them for Jacoby and/or baby #3.
I must have done 10 loads of laundry too - towels, sheets, Jeremy's work shirts, colors (3 loads), delicates, and 2 loads of whites. Then I watered the lawn that night. (We don't have sprinklers.) Our poor water bill is going to be SKY high this month, but I cannot let my grass die. We don't have enough Mother Nature around here and I'd like to think that I'm doing my share to preserve the little bit of grass that's left. Someone told us that we need to cut the large willow tree in our back yard because the roots will eventually cause us huge $$$ damage to our plumbing and house. I REFUSE to do it! The house is 13 years old and that tree is THE biggest tree in the entire neighborhood. If you go to Google Earth and look up our address, the tree is the first thing you see. We will deal with that when the time comes, but for now, I am NOT getting rid of it! It provides MUCH needed shade this time of year too. We plan on selling in 2012 so hopefully we are okay until then. (Okay - that was random babbling!)

Jaydon said something so funny today...
I was telling him this morning that I didn't want to get too fat, and we all needed to watch our food intake. He says, "Mommy, it's okay, DADDY is the fat one!" Jeremy and I just looked at each other and cracked up. What else could we do? It's a definite gut check though when you hear the honesty of a child. I told him that calling people fat was not nice. After a few more questions, he seemed to understand and apologized to Daddy. Just a lesson learned that we definitely set the example for our children!

We are trying to get rid of our 2004 Mercedes C320. It ONLY has 48,000 miles, never been in a wreck, and it is in great condition. We are needing to get into an SUV within the next few months. I cannot fit 3 children (all 3 of whom are in car seats - Jaydon is optional) in the back seat of either car we currently own. If you or anyone you know is looking for a 6-cylinder, great on gas mileage vehicle, just let me know! :)

The boys just both went to sleep and I'd like to hang out with Jeremy for a bit. Maybe if I go attempt to cuddle, he won't get back on the computer to work. What am I saying??? That's how baby #3 happened! HA!

Have a good night all...

You are my hero! Ten loads of laundry? I have never done that much laundry in one day. Well, except when my mom comes and she goes crazy doing all our laundry, hehehe.

Wow! She blogs. ha I am having the computer problems too! Gotta love it. Answers to your questions from your comments on my blog: Yes, steve is getting better. I assume your talking about Mark Sr. at work. He didn't claim sick, but he didn't have any service calls, and hung at home. He nearly had a fit when I called to give him a service call. hummm
