Thinking overload

Sometimes I wish people could hear everything I am thinking and then other times I am glad people cannot hear what I am thinking because my mind is in serious overdrive right now!  Not only are we over half way in this pregnancy, but were starting the tours of day cares and figuring out which one would be best for Baby K, the possibility of me getting to be a stay at home mama (which sadly won't happen because we just cannot make ends meet with one income, even though my husband tried REALLY REALLY hard to be able for me to stay home), and getting rid of my pretty blue car for something with cheaper payments and possibly better gas mileage.  My car gets 24 city and 35 highway.  While I do drive a TON on the highway, we also use the car quite a bit for city driving, so if we could get a car with better gas mileage on both fronts it would be beneficial!

I had every intention on blogging yesterday, but I just had too much on my mind to type it all out. 

Friday was mellow.  I made dinner and then went out with my mama and sister.  My ever loving mother and sister are throwing me a baby shower and we received the invitations several weeks ago, we just hadn't gotten a chance to send them out.  We really needed to get them out in the mail, so we Jena put the invites together, stamped them and placed the address labels on them.  Thank you to my sister! :)  

Saturday was also mellow and I LOVED it!  I woke up around 10 am (late for me), started some usual weekend cleaning and ate some breakfast.  The afternoon was spent relaxing, slowly cleaning some more and watching TV.  That evening our neighbors invited us over for dinner (BBQ chicken and ribs) and a bon fire.  We didn't end up eating until 9 pm (I never eat dinner this late) and I was ready to hit the hay.  Especially since I knew I was getting up early Sunday morning to watching my nephew and niece.  

Keeley spent ALL weekend outside with us and LOVED every minute of it!

Sunday was early, but lots of fun.  My sister-in-law dropped off Jackson and Claire at 7:30 am and we spent the day watching movies, going to the park, and playing outside.  I think Jackson rode his scooter up and down the sidewalk between my house and our neighbors at least 100 times.  He started to get bored riding the path until I came up with the idea to time his ride back and forth and see if he could "beat" his time.  It was too cute!  That evening we BBQ'd with our neighbors again and ended the night at 8 pm.  We were so beat!  I don't know how all you mama's handle 2 kids!  I bow to you all.  My mom for having 5 kids, you deserve a metal or something!  LOL!
