Better… Much Better

Since Tuesday, Lucy has done MUCH better.

She hasn’t had any more break downs. I think they are related to 3 things: Location, Me and Sleep.

Both Major meltdowns were early in the week, coming off a weekend full of mom time.

Both major meltdowns were after her being out of her element (the first one she was kept all day by a different person, the second one she was at someone elses house for the entire day).

Both major meltdowns happened when she hadn’t taken but one nap.

So basically, no naps, weird place and no mom is going to equal insane baby.

We will try and make those things NOT happen again.

Her tantrums aren’t fun.

I must admin, I’ve been SUPER slacker on cleaning my house. I’m going to try and get it good and clean this week. I have a 60% day on Friday, so Friday afternoon I will begin. Hopefully I’ll get it all done.

We’ve got all our clothes washed, they are ready to be put up. I can keep the clothes under control for a week at least. And I should be able to get my house clean during the week so I’ll have the weekend off.

I’m really excited about Christmas break… Wes, Lucy and I are going to a New Orleans Bed and Breakfast! I’m super excited. We are only staying one night. Its really pretty and in an old timey cottage. Expect loads of pictures and a really fun blog after that. After our night in the BIG CITY, we are going to go down to his dad’s and stay a couple of nights then head back up here for Christmas with our families up here.

I am also becoming a budget nazi.

I’m ready to have stuff paid off, and I’m ready to not have bills anymore. I am also blessed to have a husband who can work an extra job and is willing too. He’s actually going to start a job this week, and when he’s done, we will pay off TWO loans. TWO loans! I love my husband!

Lucy has been better this week, like I said earlier. Today she came to my work. We had our first of two cook outs for the kids, and we got hamburgers as well. So, Wesley brought her so I could get my hamburger and feed her too. She was cute. This would be the only way I would keep working, if behind my desk I saw this every day:

It doesn’t. I have to wait until I get home to see this face:
Feelin better

This is what we do for about 30 minutes after school every day. We rock in the chair. I love it. She does too.

Me and Wes had a date last night. We went to TGIF and then Target. Mama got a new pair of shoes:

And Lucy did too!

I noticed today that I had like 104 pictures and videos on my phone, so I went through and deleted all of them that I hadn’t yet uploaded, and then I noticed there were lots I hadn’t uploaded, so I’ve done that now. So my Flickr is full of new Videos that I just uploaded. They were taken a long while back, but they take forever to upload, so I just put it off.

Also – I’ve taken her 5 month pictures… But since both of our personal computers are STILL dead, I haven’t put them on a computer yet. I may just put them on my work computer just to get them uploaded. You’ll all really like them, they are SUPER cute.

Well… I just got a new app that does my budgeting, bill reminding, checking account register, and a few other finance tool things, so I’m trying to input all of my info into it so that in January – I’ll be READY to go. I’m excited. I got the school to only deposit a certain amount of my check into our checking account, and the rest of it into our savings account. If I don’t know its there, I won’t spend it. That’s one way to do it!

Have a GREAT weekend!
