I have only 3 more sleeps until I am headed on a plane for the Yucatan. I have browned up nicely, I have worked my arse off at the gym, I have got 6 books ready to be packed and I am looking forward to relaxing, sleeping, reading, sipping virgin pina colada's for breakfast and oh, did I mention sleeping? Yeah, I'm not excited or anything.
My oldest is going to be annoucing some exciting news soon. I couldn't be more proud of him, but I want to wait until it's REALLY official before dedicating a whole blog post. Stay tuned. Did I mention I am super proud of him?
Today is the first day of Spring Training!! Yippee!! I realize I am one of the FEW women who get excited about this, but really, it just means that my pinstriped boys are back in action and a whole new season to see what unfolds. I retired the mission Chilean flag. It'll be displayed in a frame on the mantel and instead hung the NY Yankees flag. I'm feeling good about this season.
Luka has introduced me to the fast cash of selling your plasma. Did you realize that a girl my size can get 25$ a pop? Yeah for about 45 min of just sitting there? You can donate twice a week which, if you do the math, is an extra 200$ a month! Um YEAH!! No brainer. And since I'm not afraid of needles like my cute friend Martie is, I think this could be some easy cash. I'm going for my first time this afternoon. You know, a little extra vacay money.
Tuffy does early moring seminary. You are allowed 8 absences before it affects your grade. If you have 9 or more, you have to do make-up work to receive your grade. He was absent 9 times last semester. His homework was to write a paper about a Family Home Evening night that he conducted. My first reaction to his teacher when he told us was "That means we actually have to HAVE Family Night?" So we haven't in like 6, okay, 10 , okay 15 years - don't judge.
Dude kicked butt! Simple quick discussion with his drumstricks as an object lesson about tempation and repentance and then we just hung out talking. We had a couple of extra kids so I figure we get extra blessings right? Your welcome to G and M's fam's.
My dog is going to freak out that we are gonna all be gone for so long. I have someone house sitting so I am not worried about her being taken care of, but she barely can handle it when I'M just gone for business a couple of days. The whole family for a week? How do you say Oy Vay in canine-ese?
Okey doke! Will do!
Did I mention only 3 more sleeps?
