My Great Friday

Today was a great day! I can't believe it but that is the first time I can say that in forever. I feel like nothing went wrong. Really I lost my temper a couple of times. Matt even said that he loved me today because I wasn't a total bitch. I kind of chuckle at that because I totally understand how he feels when I am constantly nagging or yelling at him.

So today we took in the Pontiac to get it appraised... $800 bucks! That is just to replace a bumper. When I think about it though it isn't all that bad. Except we have to pay $500 of that. YIKES! Sorry dealership, I don't have that kind of cash laying around. I guess you can keep my car an extra few days till I get paid.

After we were done at the dealership we headed back to Matt's work. They were having a command picnic. We both figured that after the picnic everyone would head home. No such luck! They had to stay an extra two hours. I am glad that there was a park right next door to the base.

Aiden spent most of that two hours running up and down midget hills. He had his arms out in front of him like a zombie, his face towards the sky running while making this UGHHH guhguhguh sound. I could not stop laughing!

Later on, after Matt got off of work, we headed out to eat realizing once we got there we forgot Aiden's backpack (the diaper bag). Matt thought no big deal. So I had him check and sure enough there was a mess. Good thing that Target was near by. Aiden needed a new backpack anyway because the straps were ripping on his old one. We bought a small pack of diapers and wipes, Aiden picked out a Toy Story backpack and we were good to go.

After we ate, Matt bought tickets to Disney Nature Oceans. We were able to sit through maybe one third of the movie but it was awesome. Our mistake was letting Aiden have some candy... that boy had ants in his pants...

The good news is that Aiden went right to sleep when we put him in bed. I am so happy that family outings are much easier than they used to be. I am also happy because I let it be a great day. I think that is a key thing for me. I have to remember to let it be a great day.

Four Good Things

I got Four Good Things from Pancakes&Frenchfries. I thought it would be a good thing for me considering I seem to always focus on the negative. I will try to do this on fridays and tuesdays so I remember all I have to be thankful for. I guess this blog really is mostly for me to be able to look back and see all of the great (and sometimes bad) things that have been happening in my life.

1. It's sunny outside! This is the first time all week. It has been cold and rainy so Aiden hasn't been able to go outside. Aiden has been going insane which has been driving me insane! I hope it stays sunny all day :)

2. My car is going into the shop today to get the bumper fixed. I really don't want to pay a $500 deductible, but whatever. I honestly am not sure how the deductible works. Anyway, I can't wait to have the bumper repainted because it was chipping before Matt backed into a car.

3. Wednesday was a really rough day for me. Aiden screamed all day to go outside. Since I wouldn't let him he kept getting his stool out and climbing up on it to get into everything in the kitchen. So all day I was constantly chasing after him and cleaning up EVERYTHING he would knock over. Then he wouldn't take a nap... UGH! Well Matt came home and made my night perfect. He took Aiden with him to the grocery store and was gone for an hour. He came back with a pot of purple mums and (my favorite) cheetos puffs. I started crying, he made my night.

4. I have started drawing again. I took up a fascination with robots and started drawing them. Then I remembered that I could put my drawings onto things like shoes and shirt at zazzle. So I have a few things on there now. I think the kids robot shoes turned out pretty well considering I don't have any type of art editor on my computer. All I did was copy and scan my drawings and put them together in a pattern. They are definitely not contenders with most of the cool artwork in there but I love them and think I will buy a pair of robot shoes for Aiden.

I can't wait to get my drawing of Spiderman on there!
