Out with the old, in with the new(er).....

R.I.P. dear old Mitsubishi Galant
March 17, 1995- March 31, 2007

Yep, it's gone. Today was the day. I saw my car driven off by someone else. It's really gone. *sigh* I sincerely hope that they take good care of it. I could go on and on about so many things that went on with that car. But I choose to just say that it was a good car. I can't complain. I got it with 8 miles on it and it left today with 138,000 miles on it. Not bad. Gosh, what a ride it was.

It was time for it to go. Sometimes you gotta quit while you're ahead. And that's exactly what we did. We knew that before too long, it would give out on us.....I mean *really* give out on us. So, we chose to take the high road and try to sell it before things got too expensive with keeping it going.

We were with just one car for a few hours today. This afternoon, Richard and I left the kids with his brother and my niece and nephew who are here visiting. We went to Spicewood and picked up a used 2000 Mitsubishi Montero Sport. So, we upgraded just a little bit! LOL! It's in pretty good condition. As always, Richard will get it there. I have no doubt. He'll baby this thing and get it to where it needs to be physically and mentally. LOL! I thank God everyday that my husband knows so much about cars and does all of the maintenance himself. He's a dream to have around. AutoZone is his best friend! LOL!

And guess what? Our new ride is WHITE too....just like our suburban! Pics to come.....we need to baptize (aka wash) this thing first.

Oh yeah, and did I mention that it has a sun roof?! Saweeeeet!

Fly-by post.....

I'm sorry that I haven't been around lately to update this thing. The truth is that I *have* been around, but I haven't felt like blogging much. Maeve is still asleep this morning, so I thought I'd try to get some "me" time in. Forgive my "random thought" format here. There's been so much on my mind lately.

-First of all, Maeve went to sleep in her crib last night, but I heard her around 11:00. She was barely awake, so I put her in the twin bed in her room. Guess what? She's still there! My big girl! Boy does she toss and turn though! She's not sleeping in our bed anytime soon! LOL! We actually transitioned Kyra to a big bed when we moved into this house. Kyra had just turned 2. So I guess it's probably going to be that time soon. I'm having a hard time with the fact that the crib will go FOR GOOD this saving it for future babies. *sigh*

-Kyra is flooring me with the amount of reading that she is doing at school and here at home. I've heard that she's one of the top readers in her class. She loves to read. She reads EVERYTHING now though and that's quite annoying. Yesterday, she was reading what I was typing! LOL! So I have to be very careful with my content now! ;)

-As for Maeve, she's talking A LOT now. The other day, Zoe was being her hyper puppy self and Maeve said, "Zoe excited!" Woah! Where did that word come from? She's a total ham right now and does the funniest things. I love it.

-Zoe and Mia are getting along quite well. They actually cuddle up against each other once in a while and go to sleep. It's so cute. They also do their play/fight thing too. Mia is definitely kept busy these days. Zoe is doing very well with pottying outside. I'm very proud of her. She's been using the doggy door and goes out by herself a lot. This morning, I have to take BOTH of them to the vet for check-ups. That ought to be interesting.

-Richard is still training on days right now. I love it. He'll soon move back to nights though.....probably within another month. Hopefully, the better pay will kick in soon too. I'm sooooo ready for that.

-As for me, I'm still teaching for the gyms and am in choreographyland right now. I have new choreography to learn for both Body Step and Body Flow that I have to teach in a few weeks.

-I'm in love. I got an ipod. I use it to run and can even hook it up to the stereo at the gym when I teach! So handy!

-I paid $2.33 for gas the other day. Two days later, it's up to $2.43. WTF?

-Only two more new episodes of "Friday Night Lights" are left. I'm excited to see how this season will end, but I'm sad that it's all over with. I'm going to go through serious withdrawals this summer. That is until they come out with the DVD, which I hope they do soon. I also am praying every single night for a season 2! The cast wants to stay in Austin and we want them to stay here too! Besides, I want my eye candy back! LOL! If you haven't watched this show, you're missing out. I think it's the single greatest show on TV right now. And it's NOT all about football either! It's so much more than that! You can watch all episodes online on!

-I think our Easter plans are to drive to La Grange on Friday afternoon after Kyra gets out of school. We'll celebrate with family on Saturday afternoon and then drive back up here on Saturday night because Richard has to work on Sunday. So it'll be low key for the girls and I on Sunday. I like it that way. Oh and Kyra should have had off for Good Friday, but we have to make it up because of the ice that we had in January.

I think that's all for now. I hope that brings everyone up to speed. I'll try to be a better blogger from now on!

Song meme.....

I've been tagged (again) by the lovely Jen.

"List seven songs you are into right now. No matter what they are. They must be songs you are presently enjoying. Then tag seven other people to see what they're listening to."

You might just be surprised to hear what I'm listening to right now. LOL!

1.) "Faster Kill Pussycat" by Paul Oakenfold featuring Brittany Murphy (We agree on this one Jen!)

2.) "Face The Music" by Conjure One (Can you tell that I'm learning Body Flow right now? LOL!)

3.) "What Goes Around....Comes Around" by Justin Timberlake (Because every girl needs a little JT!)

4.) "Hole In The Head" by The Sugababes (Ok, I just have to say that some of the music that comes out of the U.K. ROCKS and this is a good example!)

5.) "Who Knew" by Pink (Love her! Thanks Jen!)

6.) "Purify" by Balligomingo (Another song that should be on a Body Flow release!)

7.) "Breathe Me" by Sia (Another Body Flow favorite of mine. Will I ever get tired of this song? NOPE!)

***Oh and a little side note on really is one of my favorite songs EVER. It was on Body Flow release 35 and as I was teaching it one day at the gym, this person was working out at the gym. He was right outside the glass and I could see him. You all know that I adore him. ;)
Anywho, I came across this on YouTube and thought, "Wow, what a coincidence!"

OK, I guess I have to tag people. I don't know if I can come up with 7 people! LOL! Who all reads this blog anyway? OK, I know that some that read my blog don't have blogs themselves, so you can just email me your answers! LOL! (See Jen, I can break the rules too!)

1.) Chelle
2.) Mary
3.) Kimmy
4.) Sheila
5.) Susan

Crap. That's all I got! Feel free to chime right in even if you're not listed here! ;)

My girls....

Kyra got a haircut and a new outfit yesterday. She looks so grown up, doesn't she?
And Maeve LOVES the swing! She could be outside all day long. My dad says that Lisa was exactly like her at this age. She loved to swing and be outside and she'd cry when she'd have to come inside! That's my Maeve too!

Man of the house......

From another email that I got from the fabulous Kimmy!

The husband had just finished reading a new book entitled,
"You Can Be THE Man Of Your House."

He stormed to his wife in the kitchen and announced, "From now on, you need to know that I am the man of this house and my word is Law. You will prepare me a gourmet meal tonight, and when I'm finished eating my meal, you will serve me a sumptuous dessert. After dinner, you are going to go upstairs with me and we will have the kind of sex that I want. Afterwards, you are going to draw me a bath so I can relax. You will wash my back and towel me dry and bring me my robe. Then, you will massage my feet and hands. Then tomorrow, guess who's going to dress me and comb my hair?"

The wife replied, "The f**kin' funeral director would be my first guess."

A Richard funny....

Wednesday was Richard's first day off of the week. Kyra came home from school and wanted to go to our town's park to see the new playground equipment. So Richard took her and Maeve.

They were gone for about 45 minutes. Richard comes in shaking his head. I immediately ask, "Oh no, what did Kyra or Maeve do?" He said, "It wasn't Kyra or Maeve. Look at the shirt that I wore!"

He had on his "Hooters....Daytona Beach" shirt that my brother-in-law gave him a few years back. LOL!

Richard said that he was mortified because there were a lot of mommies and kids at the playground.....not to mention Kyra's P.E. teacher too! LMAO!

Note to Richard: Take a look at what shirt you have on before you go to a kid friendly place next time! ;)

The things they do.....

I took Maeve in the jogger this morning and ran my 4 miles. It was cloudy at first, but then the sun came out and warmed things up. She LOVES the stroller. It's her absolute favorite thing to be in that thing for 45 minutes or so. We talk about birds, trees, trains, etc. She sees other dogs and "barks" at them. She sees kids and says, "Hi!" On the way back into our neighborhood, we were alongside a fairly long stretch of road. As the cars were driving by, Maeve would lift up her shirt and say, "Hi truck!" OMG! I was horrified! It was funny though. I bet they all got a kick of seeing a toddler in a stroller lifting up her shirt. I got deja vu. I have this picture of my preschool class and a little girl is lifting up her entire dress and you can see her underwear. *sigh* Kids.

Maeve is obsessed with calling every vehicle a truck. My dad is here this weekend and of course, she's always quick to point out Papoo's truck.

It's going to be a busy week ahead. More on that later.

They're too young for this!

Just to preface, K and J are Kyra's best friends at school. They are girls.

B and H are little boys that are in Kyra's class.

Kyra just told me that K has B and H as her boyfriends. J was mad because she doesn't have boyfriends because K took them away from her.

I told Kyra that everyone should be friends. They'll have plenty of time for boyfriends when they are MUCH older.

Kyra said, "Well, they ARE older! B and H are already SIX, I think!"

She doesn't get it. *sigh*

I asked Kyra if she has a boyfriend and she said no. Thank God. ;)

And something Kyra asked me tonight.....

"Mommy, when I'm in 2nd grade, can I get my own cell phone?"


Um, no.

Thursday, March 01, 2007

Something that my husband always asks me.....

"So have you come to the end of the internet yet?"

Nope. ;)
