Kevin: Stop talking!

Cameron: I'm just trying to talk to daddy.

Mike: Why cant he talk to me, Kev?

Kevin: Because then I'll forget math, and everything I learned at school. I always forget things when he talks.

Cameron: Ok, here I go again, I'm gonna cry cause you're being so rude to me.

Kevin: Dont cry Cameron.

Cameron: I'm gonna, cause you're being so rude.

Happy 7th birthday Kevin!

My biggest biggen is 7!

This morning, as soon as he woke up, we let him open his presents. As he was opening them, I said "I cant believe you're 7 years old!" he says "FINALLY!!" He has been so excited about this birthday. He's a real big kid now.

Our preschool is closing..

at the end of this year. :( I cant believe Nick wont ever go to that school! Kevin had Miss Kara for 2 years and Miss Ann for 1, and Cameron is in his second year with Miss Kara. The school is actually in Mike's old house, (converted into the preschool.). I feel so bad for Nick, he wont have the same experience the biggens had. The reason for the closing is that enrollment has been down for the last few years, and the pre-enrollment for 2009-2010 is half what it was at the beginning of the 2008-2009 year.

This economy sucks.

I love craigslist, I've bought things and I've sold things. So far, we havent had an issue.

I just put my camera on there, and got a response right away. I wasnt sure if I was going to get more people interested, so when the guy low-balled me, I talked him up a little, and then told him I'd do the deal. But he wants me to meet him somewhere closer to him, so not only am I taking 25 $ off the price I wanted, but I have to drive to get to him. In the meantime, I get like 4 more people, they'd all give me at least what he offered, and I wouldnt need to meet any of them, any where.

Now the guy is creeping me out. I made mention of my husband, and he was put off that it was Mike he was meeting. When I told him I had other offers, he got a little pissy (as much as you can through email, I guess) and wants me to keep my word, and to call him. I definately don't want to call him.

our neighbors are dumb.

the people across the street aren't the brightest people I've ever met. We live in New England. It snows. A lot. You'd think people who were born and raised here would know that. They never shovel-snow blow-plow their driveway. Instead, he just puts his jeep in 4 wheel drive, and backs out. Then drives over it a couple times, and leaves it at that. Once in a while, he'll shovel behind her car, but not every time. So she gets stuck. He's like 300 pounds, and had a knee replacement last year. When we had the first storm this winter, Mike went over and snow blow-ed their driveway, after noticing that they weren't doing anything to it. He never came outside, and never said thanks.
This morning, she started her car, to bring their daughter to school. But it was cooold last night, and we had a storm yesterday, consisting of snow and freezing rain. She never scraped the ice off of her windows.

Hope everyone buckled up this morning, because I'm sure she can't see.

more snow.

another snow day. Kevin had yesterday off for a teachers workshop and now today for snow we have no room for. I wish I would have kept track of the days off so far. we're paying for Cameron's preschool, I think we should get a rebate!
they'll be in school year round at this point!

small Nick funny...when he falls, someone always says "are you ok?!". yesterday though, he fell a little bit, and I guess I wasn't paying full attention, so he gets up going "uhhh...........OK!??!......OK!??!!" I realized the problem and said "Oh, are you ok!?" and he says "yup". I love that he makes sure we're polite.

I love tv.

a ton. I think this tax season, we're getting a new one. a big one. and I am so excited at the thought of all my dvr'd shows being huge. I'd actually like to get a whole new living room. we bought a new couch in 2003, and then gave that to mike's brother and took his mother's hand-me-down, since it was more neutral colored. but, its not comfortable. and I miss the big ol' blue one. it was horribly ugly, (by my style today) but oh so comfortable.

I love spending money in my head, before I even get it.
