I can’t believe it’s been so long since I posted! I’ve been having trouble getting the time to post, or more like the opportunity. Whenever I get on the computer, Rhianna thinks she needs to jump in my lap and while it’s not too bad trying to surf the net, it’s a PITA trying to type! However, she is currently being thoroughly entertained by the Happy Monster Band on tv lol. So hopefully I have a few minutes…she cracks me up..anytime music plays she just has to move! If I ever manage to remember to buy more batteries I am going to get it on video and upload it to YouTube!

Today has started off well, even dealing with the allergies that hit me like a truck yesterday afternoon. I haven’t really had a problem with allergies in years but once Rhi was born something switched and now I have them year round it seems, off and on. I am also very allergic to cats and right now I feel like someone has stuck one right in my face =\ DD slept through the night last night, one of the few times she has done so. I even had to wake her up this morning! It would have been even nicer if I could have stopped getting up every few hours last night to check on her lol. Got the boys off to school without too much drama, although the fact that I took them I think had something to do with it. One of my boys is NOT a morning person so he got an extra half hour of sleep even though I still had to wake him up. My other boy was up around 6:30 =S After that DD and I went to the grocery store, and she was SO good for a change. I’m thinking that bribing her with a banana was the trick lol. She hadn’t had breakfast yet so she was hungry, and when she saw the bananas in the store she went nuts, so I told her if she behaved she could have one after I paid for everything. That and having my list and coupons super organized made it a relatively quick trip. It was a bit crazy as the grocery store was having another $10 off of $50, and I wound up in the line where the cashier was my neighbor, so I think it may have taken me close to the same amount of time waiting as shopping when all was said and done. Still, I can’t complain..my bill before coupons was $97 something and after it was $35 🙂

Stopped at Starbucks on the way home and got myself an iced coffee..they are running some kind of deal where you can get a Grande iced coffee for $1.99 through some time in June. I rarely get Starbucks because it is so $$$ but for $1.99 I will be indulging myself more often while I can 😉

Must clean the living room today..it is covered in paper and toys and I am constantly tripping over things. If the weather holds out I will let DD play outside and I will clean out her water table for her to play in. I bought her a new swimsuit last week and I keep catching her running through the house with it on lol. I am amazed that she actually puts it on right and not backwards or something!

This weekend I am hoping to go to the zoo, but I am not sure yet if the weather will be cooperating. Saturday morning they are still calling for showers but clear by afternoon, so we’ll see. I am just ready to be outside doing fun stuff before it gets too hot and muggy (love that St. Louis weather!). Crud, Happy Monster Band is over and I’m being summoned for more cheese. I swear I should just buy a dairy cow…

Have a good day everyone and hopefully I can get back to posting more often!
