It's Going to Be a Tight Week

Those were words Brian used on the car ride in yesterday morning so you know if he thinks so, it's going to be pretty crazy. This is the kind of week that gets my adrenaline going. A lot to do on a tight schedule. I love it! Kind of.

Yesterday Brian and I went to look at a car. A 2003 PT Cruiser. To replace my oh so pretty 2005 Honda Accord. Every time I think about downgrading my Honda Accord I think of an Oprah episode where they were talking about saving money and one huge savings is to downgrade the type of car you have. You don't have to have a new car. And a woman stood up and asked "I have a Honda, how do you downgrade a Honda?" I always thought that was funny. Anyhow, we are thinking about getting a less expensive car to replace my Honda, that is very cute but not very versatile. It's not kid friendly. We'll see what happens.

I don't watch Oprah as much as you might think. I make a lot of Oprah references, but the shows I choose to watch stick with me for some reason. I don't know why.

Today I have a team building activity with my group at work. We're bowling. I get to wear jeans today so that's a bright side. I'm trying to have a great attitude about work but I'm still feeling a little stressed.

Tonight is Awanas for the kids. Riley thinks he's too cool for Awanas. I told him he wasn't and that he has to go this year. Next year I won't torture him. The other kids really seem to like it. Especially Jillian which is a major shocker since she's so...picky.

Tomorrow Brian is going to change our insurance over and figure out how much money he wants to get when I die. It's weird to think about life insurance. I don't know why but there are all these factors to consider. Especially when kids are involved. Life and death are complicated.

Jordan and Darby will also be getting they're homemade costumes tomorrow evening from grandma. Jordan is so excited. He's going to be the grim reaper and for some reason he can't wait. He knew since August that's what he was going to be for Halloween. He asked last night if his costume was finished yet. Darby is going to be a devil. But a really cute devil. I guess this is the year of the evil 8 year olds. Jillian is a fairy princess and Riley is really living it up by being a BSU fan.

Thursday Darby's school is having a Fall Festival. It's a big deal because they don't usually have one. I'm excited to take the kids. I think this is the reason Jordan was asking about his costume.

Friday is Halloween and I'm taking the day off. However, I will be taking the kids in for some trick or treating at my work. For some reason they love this tradition. And so do my co-workers because I was planning on not doing it this year and the kids and the people at work started complaining. So, I'll be here bright and early Friday morning. We are also going "Trunk or Treating" this year at the church where the kids go to Awanas. This is new, so I hope it's fun for them.

Saturday I was going to have my wine taste party but, yeah for Riley, his team is having the championship game on Saturday so it sort of messes up my plans. I'm rescheduling for Sunday. His game also overlaps the BSU game on Saturday. I'm really questioning the people who schedule these things. Hello!

Okay, I have to go work because I have a ton of stuff to do before I take a day off. Have a great Halloween!


  • what a fun week! have fun on Halloween.

    totally agree w/ you about the car. i used to think it was a high priority to have brand spankin new car, but a car is never an investment. a car always goes down in value and it's just best to look at it as a means to get from point a to point b, safely and economically, nothing more. if it's cute, well, that's a bonus. we've been looking a lot at smart cars and scions.

  • Geeeez, I got tired just from reading what you guys have to do!

    Downgrading a Honda doesn't sound like much fun.

    Life but that's one thing a person needs to stay caught up on....
