Still waiting for anything to begin on the surrogacy front. It feels like forever and a day since anything has happened. It really hasn’t been THAT long but damn if it doesn’t feel that way. So I’m trying to keep busy with everything else to keep my mind off of it. One cool fun thing we did was get me a new car. I love her already. I drive like a billion miles a week with the kids’ schools being nowhere near our home and my new toy fit the bill perfectly with her excellent mileage and all the cool crap she does. It’s a Honda Insight and looks like this picture, including color. I don’t care if you don’t like her, I do.
I’ve also been occupying myself with some of the rooms in my house that really piss me off as far as organization goes. There are some things I try to leave to the kiddos to do but other things…well let’s face it, they’re just never going to do it. I went through the playroom and just got rid of scores of things. What always amazes me is that I can’t remember the last time we actually bought them any new toys and yet a few times a year I go through their rooms and come out with bags of this stuff. What the hell?! How does it get there?
Kenny and I have decided that in November we’re doing the same in the garage and getting rid of the “big shit” we no longer need. This includes two extra couches (yeah, who the heck has two extra couches…really) and some random pieces of crappy furniture we no longer need. It kind of reminds me of doing a PCS move (permanent change of station) when we were in the military and trying to purge the house of lots of unneeded crap. However when you’re in place for so long, out of the moving game, you really need to pick a date, stick to it and just do it. So if you’re in the need for crappy, really old as is couches and junk, let me know. If you can cart it away yourself it’s all yours.
And just a heads up. I’m in the process of looking for my supplies and if I find them I’m letting you all know that I will be making Dia de Los Muertos sugar skulls. I didn’t get to them last year as I was always so freakin’ tired with being so fat from pregnancy. I was sad I didn’t get to do them and like an idiot who can’t read a calendar, October snuck up on me this year. I don’t know how…I love Halloween and Dia de Los Muertos. My absolute favorite holidays EVER…EVER. Anyway, I’m going to go through the garage today and I hope I do find them so I can get to making them the next few weeks. I hope the gods of finding shit can hear me because I’m on this. Okay…getting up off my fat butt now to go aid the gods in finding them.
