Hannah and I are planning on going on an Educational Adventures trip to Washington DC, Williamsburg, Gettysburg, Jamestown and several other places. We are going over spring break. It should be loads of fun... and exhausting at the same time! I am going to have to save every penny I make from now until the payment deadline to come up with the money, but it is a great opportunity for her (and me, since I have never been to DC)... I only wish we had known about it earlier, so I could have started saving sooner. Now I know, so when Bekah is in 7th grade, I will not be so unprepared!

Am I weird???

OK, just an observation... I think that I am a tad Obsessive/Compulsive... just a tad. Here is why I think that... I HAVE to play Boggle on my computer before I shut it down... HAVE TO. AND I can't just play Boggle, I have my own set of rules... I can only play if there are 30 words or less to be found... I am not sure why. Ok, maybe I do know why. My husband says "you can't get a high score that way.." well YEAH, but I am NOT trying for a high score.. I am trying to BEAT the game. I want to find ALL the words on the list and in 2 1/2 minutes, you just can't find 75 or 168 words. So, I start the game over and over and over until it comes up with a game that only has a few words to find. So, am I weird? I guess everyone has little "quirks" this just happens to be ONE of mine!

Ok, just a few things... I think that I have an illness... I know that my husband thinks so! I just bought 3 things on ebay... not because I needed them, but just because! Now, I did save a BOATLOAD of money, but still...

I purchased a brighton wallet (retail $60) for $14 (including shipping), a brighton coin purse (retail $30) for $9 (including shipping) and a pair of brighton shoes (retail $150) for $28 (including shipping)... you can get some good deals on ebay!

Also, as I was walking around Target today, I had to keep "hitching" my pants up.. so I bought a belt! I guess I am losing weight! (well, I know that I am, it is just nice to see the results!)

Ok, enough rambling... later! J.

Soccer began today. Both the girls had games. Bekah's started at 3pm. Her team won 5-2. She did really well. She just needs to remember that she is FAST and can catch up to the girls with the ball.

Hannah's game started at 3:30pm, so we missed the first half. They were ahead 2-0 at the end of the first half. During the second half, Hannah was goalie. The ball only came down to that end of the field once! She did well in grabbing the ball and giving it a huge monster kick to get it back to the other half of the field. Other than that, she leaned on the goal post... they ended up winning 7-0. So, we are off to a great start... only 9 more Saturday's to go. J.

Yay for your girls! My boys won their game, too. I dread the day either one of them has to play goalie. That makes me so nervous. I wish I would have remembered my camera like you did. What a bad mom/scrapper I am!

I am jealous... yeah, I am. I tried NOT to be jealous, but I can't help it. Tomorrow, my friends are heading to Arizona to attend the VERY FIRST CREATIVE ESCAPES............ I WANT TO BE THERE!!!!!! Sigh... I am still paying off my credit card from the CKU that I attended in June.... sigh... it is Soccer and Football and crazy time around here so even if I could afford to go, I couldn't afford the time to go...., there you have it... I am missing out, and I am not happy about it! J.
