Good morning! I know being the first Monday of the new year I should be ready to go and have a really great post for you all.
Well, that’s not the case. 🙂 We were super busy this weekend and into last night working on the garage, house, new car, that I didn’t even get on my computer. Craziness.
So we’re starting this first Monday of the new year with a weekend rewind. 🙂
We started the new year with a really sick little girl:
Poor baby was couging and couging all night long, but I’m happy to report she’s much better. Still a little cough, but she’s in good spirits and has her energy back. We’ll find out today if it really was whooping cough as the doc suspected. Not sure how that happens in an immunized child, but I guess anything is possible.
Saturday we went to pick up our new car!
It’s an Acura MDX. The day after Christmas we sold our Dodge Ram. Our goal is to be debt free by next year! This was one of the many steps on our debt free journey. We were able to pay cash and now we have no car payments! We were a one car family for about a week, which was really hard for us. We live in the suburbs so having 2 cars is almost a must; especially when I work part time. Huebie and I carpool a few days a week, but on those days that I’m home I really need to be able to get out of the house! Really enjoying the new car so far.
On our way to pick up the car we stopped at Cabela’s so Huebie could look at some man things. Little A was so excited to see the animals. The fish were her favorite part. They really just sort of gross me out (mostly just this sturgeon).
I can’t believe I’m saying this, but Cabela’s is actually pretty cool. They have a ton of animals, including a African safari type area with lions, cheetahs, and an elephant. It’s amazing the size of those animals.
This crazy girl was feeling much better already Saturday afternoon. She was putting her “loot” in Miss Bank (her piggy bank) and wanted to give her kisses and thank her for taking care of her money. Such a sweetie.
We spent yesterday purging our garage and last night Huebie and I started working in the playroom to get it picked up. I’ll be documenting the journey to make it a functioning meida/playroom this year. But I want to wait until we have some reasonable progress to share photos with you guys.
Do anything fun this weekend? Are you mid-westerner’s surviving the crazy weather you’re having?
