29 weeks and counting and tired....

Gosh, having three in school makes for alot of work! I wouldn't trade it for the world though right now. Being able to be at home and attend all of their events or needs at school is so cool.

This is Red Ribbon Week as well as awards week which means awards ceremonies for each kid, all on a different day. As well as a lunch picnic for each kid on a different day. And being Halloween week trying to get costumes finished and 4 soccer practices and 3 games. I am just pooped!

I was worried last night as I got to thinking I hadn't felt the baby move in a while. He didn't move much even when I layed down so I monitored it for a while. Felt him a couple times and so I went to bed. Boy, today he is a mover! I had our new kitten draped over my stomach asleep and he was kicking so hard the cat moved! Watch out kitty, if you only knew what lies ahead, RUN!

I am finishing the gourmet apples for the girls teachers as a Halloween treat. I will post pics when I am done with 'em. Worked on an order of 6 earlier today for my oldest's old teacher!

Sales Sales Sales!

Those garage sales and consignment stores get me every time! I decided to get out all of the clothes I have found for the baby and put them all on our bed. That's alot! And to think I didn't spend more than $40 for this array of over 60 pieces of clothing makes me ecstatic. They are all name brand and like new too.
It CAN be done. People complain about the economy this, money woes that. Yes, this is a bad time for our country, but help yourself by changing your habits. Make your household different from the rest. You can save alot of money by doing little things. I registered with Target Baby Registry. For myself. Being my fourth, I don't need a baby shower, and I gave all the baby stuff away after Morgan grew out of it. So every paycheck, I am getting something off the list. Even if I only have $5. Dwindling it down. I don't have extravagant things on there, just the essentials I need. If I find something at Walmart or at a yard sale, I mark my Target list as fulfilled.
Oh, and it doesn't hurt that we have the cheapest gas in the nation.....
$1.99 !!!!!!!
We filled up our truck for $40 :-)
