Well it's kinda hard to post on this blog without talking at least somewhat about our move to New Orleans because right now that is the main focus of my life... as much as I wish it weren't. I have managed to get a bit of sleep.... though I'm still having issues with it... and we've had some insane events in the last few days... to catch up on all of that you can visit Moving To New Orleans....
Oh and that humongo electric bill... well yeah of course it was no mistake... we somehow managed to use twice as much power as last month... and three times what we used this time last year ... even though we keep everything unplugged when we're not using it and I even flip off the breakers to my major appliances when I'm not using them... the only explanation I can come up with is that my son's friend has been charging his car battery when he's here several times a week instead of repairing his alternator.... can that really use $300 worth of electricity in one month??? That was the only thing we've done differently. Needless to say he's not doing it anymore!!! I could have fixed his freakin car for him cheaper than that!!! Also needless to say he won't be offering up any money towards helping with that bill :(
In spite of our bad news this morning concerning Adrian's job... we decided to enjoy a beautiful day of sunshine... so we took Steffie to the playground and we had a picnic. Then we enjoyed a nice conversation with a new friend that we met there... turned out she lives just around the block from us and is a homeschooler too. Great... I meet her just in time to move away... right... oh well... we can keep in touch through Facebook. I didn't take any pics... but Steffie was sooo happy to be playing outside... and with other kids. She's a very outdoorsy kinda lil girl... and I think she may have met a friend that is even more bossy than she is...lol
Please forgive me if I don't get to visit your blog daily... I've got tons of packing to get done along with the usual daily household necessities... but hopefully after we get moved and everything settles I can get back to my regular visits. In the meantime I'll visit as much as possible... and try to keep posting here... and updating on our move on the other blog as well.
Hope everyone has a great weekend.... 2 more days until SPRING!!!!! YAY!!!
