Disneyland this year...

Disneyworld next year?


Not quite sure that we could afford that but at some point when Emmy gets older I'm guessing we're going to have to re-do our Disney vacation!

The good thing is --- that orlando vacations are in a great destination and you can get some pretty good deals.

I'm all for pulling the kids out of school for a few days in order to get around the long lines too!

Just a little bit longer...

and we'll be up in the sky and headed to the west coast!

I'm really excited about going somewhere sunny and spending time with Alex and Dom. It's the first time we've been to visit them since they always make the trip out to see us!

Also, Graem is starting to get excited about Disneyland! At some point I'm going to sit down with her and go to the website so that she can see what they have to offer!

Books! Books! And more books!

I just ordered some Amazon books a few weeks ago.

I had read the reviews and after researching the web found that Amazon had some of the best deals. With the free shipping that Amazon offered it just made sense.

Now, I just have to find the time (read: WITHOUT KIDS) to get into these books and enjoy myself!

The school meeting...

This afternoon we're meeting with Graem's school to discuss the prospect of her moving to the next level of Montessori school. We're pretty nervous because we don't know how the teachers will react and hope that they see the same potential in Graem that we do!

Of course, we're also trying to work around a couple of other issues including the fact that there are 2 1/2 year olds in her classroom AND the fact that our kid is reading and ready to go the next level.

It's hard having a smart kid!

The money pit!

Our house is really a great little place. We bought it from a 70 year old guy who moved into assisted living and got a killer deal.

Over the years we've fixed it up and put a decent amount of money.

In the kitchen we laid down floor tiles and we're starting to realize that a few of them are coming up. Now the question is if we should retile in a different tile, lay hardwood floors, or just buy some replacement black and white tiles.

I'm thinking the quick solution will probably do best -- buy replacement tiles and call it a day!


I'm pooped.

Like to the point of falling asleep while driving. I'm not sleeping very good at night because Margot's snoring and I'm tossing and turning through the night.

Maybe tonight I'll dope up in hopes of actually getting a few winks.

Mmmm...Nyquil. I can feel the burn now...
