4 day work week...

I am truly looking forward to this weekend, 3 days off!! We have made plans to go out with my brother and sister in law on Friday. Lunch and a movie (Hancock)...it's the little things in life that give us joy.

Swimming

Brianne has been taking swim lessons at day care and we can really see a difference. She loves to swim so much and is so fearless that we felt we really had no choice but to put her in swim lessons. We can tell she feels more confident swimming in the pool.

Cleaning....finally?

Eric and I are hoping to get the house at least somewhat clean this Saturday. I hope to at least get things picked up, and the top layer of dirt off everything. Wish us luck!

Darn this heat!

Oh my goodness!!! It is only June and it is already over 100 degrees EVERYDAY!!! This does not bode well for the summer...*sigh*
On the other hand, I am thankful that there is no humidity. I do not do well with the moisture, feeling all sticky...yuck! I really want to try to do some pool exercises to help keep my weight under control during my pregnancy, and now that Brianne can wear floaties and has had some swim lessons I don't have to be as crazy about her. Now if I can only find the energy to do it...

Attitude

Brianne is getting some attitude! She has started saying phrases with a certain flare shall we say...She is definitely testing the waters of defiance. She has also picked up the very annoying habit of whining. It is driving Eric and I up the wall.

And now to add a bit of fun for me, Eric is the new teachers quorum adviser in our ward. This means on top of doing work, school & Primerica (which he doesn't get to do much of already), now he will be gone to do mutual and scouting things. I hate this!!! I did not get married so I could be a single parent.

We really need a vacation, but it all comes down to that age old detail of money. Not enough to go, can't afford to take time off of work, etc. etc.

Did I mention waahh, waahh, poor me!
