Today, we taped the second layer of tape in the corners and Bud rewired the porch light. Oh, and I took Lizzie w/me to Home Depot so I could purchase a new porch light. The old one must be an original with the house, because it disintergrated while Bud was taking it down. LOL! It weighed a ton! I had to laugh, because this occurred after Bud cleaned out the glass bowl that went to the original fixture and surprise it was clear! We had a good chuckle about that.
I have also sadly come to a realization - we will absolutely not be able to make it Idaho until later. The amount I have in savings isn't the amount of cushion we need for life's little emergencies - such as stitches, cars that break down or other emergencies that could possibly arise. So while it means I don't have to scramble around to get things in place, I am disappointed because I needed this trip and so did our girls. Lizzie talked about going to see Grandma and Grandpa in the mountains for months and now we will more than likely end up waiting until Chris returns home before we go up now. It's $1600 for airline tickets for us four over Christmas, so unless the rate suddenly drops or they create baby valium, I am not sure if we will make it up there. I could drive, but I am not a masochist or suicidal! The mountains in winter with three kids?! No thank you, you could just lock me up in the looney bin because to do that I would have to be insane.
Despite all of these things though, I think we are in fairly good spirits. The little girls are happy to be at home and playing on their swing set and running around since the heat broke a few weeks ago. I may even be able to get Boo back on a good schedule so she'll be ready for the school schedule when Lizzie goes back on it. Lizzie on the other hand enjoys staying up until 11:30 p.m. and she's showing signs of it, in the circle under her eyes. She and Beka are watching some Eloise cartoons we have on our Netflix Instant play list. This is a life saver and a nice change - plus you can't beat cheaper.
Well, I must get down to some business of getting monkey's to head towards bed. I hope you all have a good week.
