I didn't see District 9 but I just read a review of it and thought the title was cool, me being in the 919 area code and all.
Am I a once a week blogger now? Dang!
Everything is everything on my end. In my last post Freaky mentioned me working 90 hours, well last week I pulled 83! Insanity I swear! The next check from my "weekend job" will look nice as hell though. Too bad the money is spent. How come every time I think I'm getting some petty cash something comes up? It's just not right!!! LOL!
The new expense I have now is Pooka's martial arts class. I picked her up this weekend (my mom 2) and my baby is ROUND!!!!! When I first saw her my mouth dropped because she looks just like me when I was her age! Height, complexion, features, roundness, everything! I was just in shock and it took me a minute to get over it! My mom thought it was funny and just kept laughing! LOL! I already mentioned that I didn't want Pooka growing up the same sizes I were growing up and been doing a pretty good job keeping her in a decent range....but that's all out the window at the moment.
When I asked her what activity she wanted to get into she thought about it for a moment and said marital arts. So I got online and found an after school program that will pick her up from school, help her with her homework, then they get on with the martial arts. It costs more than the after school care at her school, but I need her to be more active to get some of that summer weight off. Part of me thinks she chose martial arts because her father loves it and she knows other children that do it. Today after work we are going to check the place out. At this place, the first couple of visits are free so the kids can see if they really want to do it or not b4 the parents start shelling out money. I like that.
Pooka isn't the only person getting on track to get right. Both me and my mom are round as well and plan to use this time to get it together. It's a family affair! YAY!
Pooka has a new wardrobe! YAY! I went to one of the huge thrift stores in MD and lost my mind!!!! I was not planning to do it, it just happened! LOL! This particular location has a lot of name brand items with the tags and stickers still on it for cheap! It's real stuff too! My baby is going to be styling almost everyday and nobody will know how much I paid for it! HAHAHAHAHAHAH I love it!
In hanging up her new threads I realized I needed to clean her closet out. There is no reason for me to still have a baby bed, 2 car seats, a booster seat, her baby monitor, and all the clothes I thought she'd be able to wear when she came back and can't. NONE! I'm taking it all to Goodwill after we check out the martial arts spot.
Other than that, everything is the same with me. I'm just super glad to have my baby back home.
Oh while I'm thinking about it, as I was walking towards my car this morning I waved at my neighbor who was in her car about to leave. She rolled her window down and said, "I'm so glad I saw you today because you were in a dream I had last night"
I must have looked at her funny or something and she went on...
"I dreamt that you lived in *the apt directly across from me* and was banging on the window pleading for help"
As my face contorted even more I replied "Oh my"! I told her that everything was good with me, she laughed and said "good" as I shook my head and opened my car door. Weird!
