Alright, I got sick, but not as bad as Tim and Julia. Lets just say that my butt saw the porcelain throne to much (aren’t you glad to know that). At least I wasn’t worshiping the porcelain throne like Tim. I took Julia to the doctor yesterday because of the fever lasting 3 days. Can you guess what she has? An ear infection. What is it with my children and ear infections. I have a feeling that Julia will be getting tubes in her ears too, just like Delton. Speaking of tubes, his are completely out (did I mention that before? Oh, well if I did).
I also need to complain about money. Why does it seem that we just can’t get ahead in life? I went to the atm today and it said that we had negative in our account. But, my quicken book said I had tons (seems like tons to me(anything over $100)) of money. We just can’t do it. Why do we make it so hard to keep our books. This summer I’m going to really work on a budget. We should be able to get ahead of the game since I’m not paying for daycare. The key phase is “WE SHOULD BE ABLE TO.” We really want to sell our place, but this makes me not want to. How will we ever be able to afford a bigger mortgage if we have such a hard time now? I have so many wishes for my children and just can’t do that for them (saving for college). I look at other teachers who are older than me and they seem to be very financially comfortable. When will it be my time? Is it possible to have the same life style as they have? Will I ever be able to buy that house in the country with a big yard (for the kids to play in and Tim to relax in a hammock) and a garage? I know I shouldn’t complain. I have a house with a roof and a wonderful family. They are healthy and beautiful. I’m just being greedy. God has given me a lot to be thankful for – and I am. I need to stop wanting, is this normal.
On another note – I walked (yes in flip-flops) down to market with the kids today. We stopped at the jumping fountains downtown for Delton and Julia to play in. They loved it. I’ll have to post pictures later tonight. Julia got a few surprise squirts under her dress. It was great being able to watch them have so much fun. We then walked back to our house. I forgot how hilly Lancaster actually is going back to our house, especially pushing 2 kids in a stroller and all our food from market. This is part of living in the city that I love. There is so much to do and you can just walk there. We will be going to a free gymboree class tomorrow. Delton was able to experience Gymboree at school and he loved it. They have a great deal for the summer (June, July and August) – 2 classes and 3 open gyms for the price of 1 class. I’m trying to get Delton to be more comfortable with his gross motor skills (he has a hard time with this, he becomes very scared to do things at time). Julia is really into music too, and they have a wonderful family music program. I know I shouldn’t spend money (maybe that is why I don’t have it) 😦
