so much to say... not enough time!

Well, I woke up nice & early today to get lots done before Erica would wake up. Arg... she's awake now in her room... been awake since 7:15 or so. But she's being okay up there, so I'm letting her go for a little bit.

ANYWAY, yes I've been absent. Everything's been so busy. Thus, there's a lot to say. I just don't have much time [since Erica's awake]. Hmmm... quickly:

-I went to see Abby on Tuesday. How wonderful! I drove all the way out to her [a bit more than 1 hour, from Lancaster County to Philly area] and got there right before the end of the school day, so I could meet her students. Nice. Then we went shopping. I bought lots of clothes. It was nice. Six shirts for only $1.75!!! Okay, really it was $61.75, but I had a $60 gift card. I'm quite pleased.

-Then we went to see a movie. "The Invisible." Good movie. It left me wondering, though, how long I'll still consider myself close enough to being a teenager that I'll find teen-type movies appealing. Hmm...

-Wednesday we took it some-what easy. I didnt go to sleep until after 3 am b/c of being out with Abby... and woke up around 6:30. OUCH- only 3 hours sleep! But oddly, when I woke up I was feeling well rested, so I didnt go back to sleep. How odd? That afternoon, Erica wouldn't take a nap. So by 5 we were both extremely cranky and ready for bed.

-Thursday was busy. I had a mom's group in the morning. Then I took the car to get an oil change. Erica and I dropped it off at a place then walked to Walmart, not far away. We just roamed around, and then got lunch. [Lots of walking-- good exercise.] When we went to pick it up, the guy said that there was lots of other things wrong. The radiator and transmission are both leaking fluid and will need to be fixed/replaced. At that particular place, they could fix the radiator for us, but not transmission. They said that the radiator alone would take $440 or so. OUCH! Our car is stupid and is sucking the $ right out of us. Anyway, Andrew doesnt seem concerned at all. He thinks the guys were just trying to earn a few more bucks from us. So, he's just letting it go. Cross your fingers for me!

-Today I'm going to see Clairissa, so Erica and Reagan can play together. I always enjoy our visits; it'll be fun. Unfortunately, we may not be able to stay too long, b/c Erica's gonna get tired really soon b/c of waking up so early.

-Well, I've left the little princess up there long enough already. Must go

[PS: I will make it around to other blogs soon. PROMISE! Maybe not till tomorrow though... I need to get my kids' lessons done by tomorrow]

Erica's not taking her nap. She's up there screaming and screaming and screaming. She didnt even sleep for a few minutes. Not at all.

URG! So much for getting lots of stuff done

Guess I'm not the only one that took a break. Sounds like you had a blast with your sister. I really need to take a trip up to Philly as well and visit my cousin and her baby.
