His & Hers & His


Busy week. Sold our truck. Had a hell of a test-drive at a Chevy dealership (I'll have to write that one up soon because it is a doozy and deserves its own post) and test drove 3 different Hondas before making a late-night purchase of a zippy blue CRV last night. Our kids are troopers, though after a while Henry got creative about his reading technique at the dealership.  (I'm happy he's hooked on the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series.  Anything to make them want to keep reading, you know...)

This week has been d-r-a-i-n-i-n-g.  Errrrrrgh.  I hate making this blog about how tired I am, but DAMN. I am so effing tired, y'all.  Last night after we bought the car, I had to finalize Addie's Carmel Mission video, and then I had to set an alarm for 3:30 to get back up and burn the discs.  This was after the hours of editing I spent on it all last week... it was all too much on top of selling cars, buying cars... oh, and RETURNING TO WORK and having new students and a new semester.  Oh, and having a parent waiting for me outside my door when I got to work today... what?  Yay.

This morning when my alarm went off I had the urge to cry.  A very, very strong urge.  I hate being cry-tired.

Total naps for the week:  1.  That number is way too low for my standards.

But.  Addie presented her video today and she was as excited as I have ever seen her when I picked her up from school.  WORTH IT.

Tomorrow morning I leave early early for a Mock Trial tournament, but I'm pretty excited.  I miss the kids and we're starting to gear up for county (and hopefully, state) competition.  Should be a fun weekend, although it is bound to be... wait for it... more work.

Oh, and because I can't go anywhere without being a total dweeb, I left my damn library book on the chair at the nail salon tonight.  Freaking A.

But after I got home we had a small accomplishment.  E is grinning ear to ear tonight because for the first time in our three car garage ownership, we actually fit all three cars into our garage.  It goes a little something like this:
