Moving Right Along

This is my annual I can't leave those trashy, drunk, party pictures up for one more day or I might die of embarrassment post. At least I'm consistent, right?

Moving right along... After 2 weeks of nonstop parties with ridiculous amounts of food and drinks, you'd think I would be making a New Year's resolution about health or exercise or whatever else people resolve to do this time of year, but once again, I'm not. It's not that a New Year's Resolution isn't a good idea, it's a great idea, but I know I won't last one week. I can't even think of a decent topic for this blog post (and stick with it for more than a few sentences) and have erased and started over roughly 4 times now.

Moving right along... The girls went back to school today. Can you hear me cheering? They were actually as excited as I was to go back to our school year routine. Mae woke up bright and early, got dressed without any prompting from me and had her school bag packed and her coat on a good 20 minutes before the bus pulled into view. Binny was a bit slower but still even let me brush her hair without kicking and screaming.

Moving right along... The Gardener and I are in the market for a new bed. The bed related backaches have been getting so bad that if we try to sleep in on the weekends, it's downright painful. Sleeping in on a cold Sunday morning should not be a painful experience. We finally started looking for new mattresses yesterday, but once we saw the prices at the furniture store, I saw my dreams of taking a vacation this winter all but evaporate. Really, $1800 for a mattress and box spring? For that price it better serve me breakfast in bed for the first year. After doing a little comparison shopping on the Costco website this morning, I found a very similar mattress set for less than half as much as the set we saw at the furniture store yesterday. Plus, it goes on sale later this week!

Moving right along... Sad news about our local ice skating rink. Last week the weather turned warm and rainy, melting all of the snow that was on the ground and also melted the ice rink. When the cold weather returned, it came back with 30 mile an hour winds making for super bumpy ice, and while that would have been bad enough, all of the gravel and sand from the parking lot blew into the rink and froze into the ice. Boo!

Moving right along... Santa brought Binny this puffy skirt and she's has worn little else since. Guess where Santa found it? Costco! Another reason why Costco rocks!

Love the skirt.

Resolutions suck. This year I'm going for goals. ;) Princess and I are looking forward to Village classes starting and getting back to our regular routine, too. Oh...and that skirt rocks.

That is the most adorable skirt!

Nothing worse than a bad mattress, and the older you get, the better quality it needs to be!

One child goes back to school today, one tomorrow, and then I just need to get rid of my partner.
