What a weekend!

It was such a busy weekend. I was suppose to be having my bathtub resurfaced on Saturday but they guy came on Friday instead. This meant I had to quickly make plans to stay elsewhere because the fumes are severe. The apartment manager allowed me to give Kenzy his own apartment across the way since it was vacant! He was not so happy though, poor baby. I went and spent the evening with my mom and Fred. They took me out to eat Mexican food and it was so good! It had been months since I'd gone out for Mexican.

Fred and I got up at 5:00 the next morning to head back to my place for my yard sale... finally. Only to have almost no one even come and I made all of $8.50. I'm serious ya'll! It was so sad! Although while packing up car seats I had for sale, the gal across the apartment from me katty-corner, bought one of the seats so that was a little more money but not much! I loaded almost everything up in my van and took it to someone else's house for a yard sale next weekend. I refuse to store all that stuff and do this again! It felt good to just get rid of it! I did, however, meet a couple of neighbors and found out that my kids could ride the school bus! We're so close, I had no idea the bus would run but the stop is directly in front of our apartment! Since we are almost finished with this year, I'll continue driving but am seriously thinking of the benefits to the bus!

Yesterday, the fumes were still really strong in the apartment so I went for a slumber party at my best friend, Fran's house! Her husband is out-of-town speaking at some Dr.'s conference... or something... so I went over and we caught up on life stuff and she treated me to Thai! YUMMY! It was so fun catching up with her. She'll be leaving for Italy next week and gone for two weeks! Italy has always been my dream trip (along with Greece) so I can't wait to hear all about it when she gets back.

Today was church and then I found out that there was a huge Croc warehouse sale so I ran over after church and got the boys new crocs for summer for only $10. per pair and myself a new pair as well.... different style. They also had t-shirts and socks! Got the boys each a new shirt and myself some socks. GREAT, smokin' deals!

I ended up getting the boys back early today as well so, some of my plans just didn't work. I still have a lot of cleaning up to do in the apartment and I still didn't get my checkbook balanced. maybe tomorrow....

good news about the school bus. Sorry about the garage sale (I hate doing garage sales because I hate to see people handling my stuff and then commenting about it).
