I would like to apologize for not having a big special post prepared. I actually have been putting off writing my 100th post because I didn’t have something big planned but I thought it would be pretty silly to let my blog die at 99 just because I didn’t have anything special to say…so here it is…
This is it! I made it to my 100th post and honestly I can’t believe it. When I started this blog last summer, I wasn’t sure where I was going with it and as you can read…I’m still not sure. However, I have kept at it and I am proud of that. You see, I seem to have this personality glitch where if I try something and I am not instantly wildly successful at it…I quit. My mom always tells me I thought I was supposed to by born knowing everything. I am not sure where blogging falls into this but I must like it enough to keep at it. Over the past 5 months I have had so much fun in the blogging world. I have done giveaways and got to try new products and even try products I already love. I have ”met” with some wonderful people out here in blog world and I am glad I have them around. Hearing their experiences has made mine seem not so crazy and unbearable. Raising kids is hard and stressful so it’s nice to know you aren’t alone in the crazy boat.
I hope I can continue to write and grow as a blogger. Here’s to 100 more!
Now, on to recapping the weekend. My aunt and her boy toy were in between cruises this week so we headed out to go airboating through the everglades. We had never been and that was mostly because I was deathly afraid of getting bugs on my face. The kids were very excited so I sucked it up and went. I actually really enjoyed myself! It was fun to zip through the water and when the alligator came swimming up to the side of the boat it was pretty awesome. Our driver was very nice and informative. I was constantly amused every time he said “these gators” with his very down south accent. While informing us about soft shelled turtles he said “That there is a good eatin’ turtle…if you like eatin’ turtle…” It was pretty funny.
The kids had a wonderful time looking at all of the animals and hanging out with their favorite aunt. After, boating we headed back to the house with a couple bottles of wine and some snacks to catch up. It was a great evening.
Sunday started with me heading into the coupon battle at 7 am. I love this time! I can get up, grab my stuff and head out for a morning by myself. I’ll tell you more about this in a later post. Sometime during the morning I was calling to brag about my loot to my mom when I discovered that when my phone “updated” to Froyo (I was in the first batch of people…lucky me…), I can no longer stay on a call longer than 20 seconds without my phone rebooting. Verizon informed me that they had seen this problem a couple of times today but nothing worked to fix it. They of course didn’t have my phone in stock so they were going to try their hardest to get one overnighted to me…but I would get a new one by Tuesday. While he was “trying” to fix it he managed to wipe out everything that was on my phone; email accounts, contacts, tweetdeck, my lovely Bella and Edward wallpaper and my message ringtone of Bella saying “You can’t run with vampires…they’re really fast.” I am trying to be patient…we’ll see how it goes.
Sunday afternoon brought about the dreaded hanging of the tv on
my our newly painted wall. There were a lot bad words flying around and when we finished hubby had really screwed up his back…BUT the tv looks amazing! It really opened up the living room and I am looking forward to not saying “Don’t touch the TV!!!” 500 times a day. Thanks to the hubby for doing such a great job!
Sunday evening we watched Inception. Well, I started on our taxes and went coupon hunting while we watched Inception…it was ok. Not bad but not great in my opinion. I would have rather watched Desperate Housewives…but that’s just me.
All together it was a nice weekend. I was exhausted by the end of it but I’m glad everyone had a good time. I hope you all had a great weekend and Happy Monday!
