We are going to the Circus, having over the fam. and having Mark's Birthday at our house....hey could someone bring plastic or paper plates, peas? (since Eva is such a cute little talker the way she says things gets stuck in my head.....I'm stuck on toddler talk)

This week I've been in a weird mood. I felt kinda nasty and sick with a horrible headache/cold the first half of the week and the last half of the week I just felt like my brain was stuffed with cotton. I've had a hard time living in the mind is wandering alot. At ALDIS the checkout lady like yelled at me..."LOAD YOUR STUFF ON THE BELT PLEASE!!!" because I was just standing there staring at the orange wall border with fascination while everyone waited behind me. whoops. Then I was like...."Oh thank you...I think I would have just zoned out here for a really long time." and I was really grateful she yelled at me. thank you check out lady for your kind words of assistance.
So that has been ME this week...out of it, dizzy, headache, unable to focus. I think I need a brain scan! The nice weather the past two days too has made it really hard to do school with Addie in the morning. We just want to run outside and swing all day. Last night I made her do math in bed while she was about to pass out. I was like....."MATH TIME!!!" she looked at me like I had LOST IT.

on the other hand...she is learning to read!!! There is nothing as cool as seeing her learn and progress.

Last night we went to the Dayton Library book sale at the Hara Arena. a.k.a Scary Arena. It's cool...there are a LOT of books and if you are one who shops on Sunday (curse you) you can get everything you can carry out for only $1.

ever since I had Addie and she was old enough to scream in horror every time she went to nursery, I miraculously would be called as the teacher of whatever class she is in. this is our super CTR class as we call ourselves. we have a good time :)
Dannys spring break project. It's not totally finished yet but here it is.....

aldis day

I hate grocery shopping with a strange passion.
I always have.
When Danny and I were first married it was a chore we'd both save until the weekend and then race through Aldis and Kroger as fast as we could.

After I had Addie I kinda took the responsibility of grocery shopping on and I would take her out once a week or so and go grocery shopping. It was okay. I still didn't enjoy it but I kinda just dealt with it.

Then I had Eva and things changed once again.

Because grocery shopping became torturous to the point of me just not going at all.

For one...I can't focus in the grocery store. I get distracted by all the different things that I could possibly buy. I try to take a list but even making a list is really annoying .

So I'd end up getting nothing on my list, plus frozen pizzas, strange looking tropical fruit, and ice cream and popsicles.

So later on in the week we'd be out of everything and I'd be eating the last can of old pears and I'd tell everyone to eat oatmeal for dinner.

also when I'm in the store with the kids they start to get so hungry all they can think about is getting lunchables and juice. and we get distracted once again.

as a wonderful, loving service Danny does the grocery shopping on Saturdays. He takes the kids or one kid and does the dirty work and I can't tell you how happy that makes me. So I haven't had to enter aldis in several months.

but today I'm going. Because his bro. is coming over to help him build our swingset and I told him I'd take the kids and brave Aldis on a saturday. I'm actually okay with it because I haven't been there in so long I think I need to experience it so I once again have a renewed appreciation for the saturday grocery service.

I really do like Aldis. IT only has 3 aisles, there is only one brand to pick from, and there's very little confusion. Besides the interesting people you run into at aldis.

One day when addie was a baby we were all in Aldis and an older lady came up to us and pointed at Addie's hat and said..."DID YOU MAKE THAT HAT?" I was like "Yes." Then she was like...."That is soooo wonderful. that is just amazing. Look at that HAT! NEVER STOP MAKING THOSE HATS!"
then she like poked danny in the chest and was like "NEVER LET HER STOP MAKING THOSE HATS!"
he was like "Okay."
then she went into a discussion of how her husband made her stop doing things.
