ac finally

the ac works again. it only took 28 days for them to fix it. at least we are looking at it as the glass is half full. yes its been so hot and yes I found out a sweat way more than any girl should but at least our power bill will be really low in one of the hottest months of the year. I know the buckeye is happy the ac works again. he was just staying in our room that had the window unit all day long. now he can go back to being king of the whole house.

ps happy college football day

feeling crafty

so yesterday we had to go to work a half an hour later to lighten the load on our payroll so I had time to kill. you know how you start a project and just put it off and put it off, well yesterday I worked on one of mine. it's a really big clock for our living room. I love how it just clicked. I'm about half way done (pictures will come). leif is in charge of placement on the wall. we have no pictures up and we have lived here for a whole year. that's all going to change we have pictures from the cruise that we need up, our family picture (with buckeye), and the clock. man it feels good to be creative.

I think its time

Our roommate is leaving on the 1st and I think its a sign. We will have our spare bedroom all cleaned out and ready for something to put in it. We have extra money just for babies. Am I forgeting anything left on leifs list. Now all I need to do is make it seem like leifs idea.

so it's 3 o'clock in the morning and leif has me busy working on a project with him. a very very important project that has to be done by tomorrow. its a budget for his 2nd fantasy football team for their auction draft tomorrow night. now it might sound odd but its not. we had to figure out our teams in our league that we are in together a couple weeks ago. so we started this at like 12:30 and we have a price for every player and who he wants with the right bye weeks (this may just sound like a bunch of craziness and no one knows what im talking about but he loves football so I love football, enough said). I feel like the best wife right now. he is upset I wont be able to be here for the draft. I have to work. I told him he will do fine on his own if he sticks to our plan and doesn't drink too much before it starts. that could get interesting if he's drunk. I just like the fact that im his little numbers girl and he needs me. so much love. wish him luck for the draft.

ps. I know we are nerds

Feeling hot hot hot

So tomorrow the ac will be fixed. Its been about 3 weeks since it broke and we will be sooooo happy when its done. I love having the home warranty but this is awful. Thank goodness we have bedroom units or else we would have been miserable.

We all know Facebook is full of drama. Some of the juiciest stories have been seen on Facebook.  Everyone has those friends that over share and the friends that have full on drag out fights over comments. Well something dumb happened yesterday.  One of my cousins posted a picture of her daughter using the big girl potty for the first time and one of her friends reported it as porn/nudity.  Now I looked at the picture and nothing was showing and she was fully dressed. The odd thing is her page is friends only so it has to have been someone she knows. Now I don't have kids yet but I don't see anything wrong with a proud mom snapping a picture of a milestone in her daughter's life

cool thing of the day

did you know that ketchup can clean a dirty penny instantly. im going to wash all my pennies now. not really but its really cool. it makes you think about what ketchup is doing to your insides too.  

hot cars

we all know its summer and we all know its hot outside so why is there still a problem with people leaving their kids and animals in the hot car while they go and enjoy the air conditioning. that's the dumbest thing I have ever heard of. women grocery shopping and leave all their kids in the car with a window cracked. or people traveling with their pets and leave them in the car while they eat in a restaurant. its called get a babysitter and go through the drive thru. at least most people do the right thing and make anonymous tips about people who abuse their animals by leaving them in the car. I found out that you just call the none emergency number and an officer will come and give them a ticket if they have their dogs left in a car. it wont stop everyone but its a start. thanks cassi for the none emergency number info.

So last night I told leif that we would start trying for babies and its like the universe says no. I had so many screaming kids at my tablea today. And if that wasn't enough a lazy mom let her kid run into the kitchen and fall and hit his head. What kind of bitch lets her kid get into harms way like that. Some people.

Feeling good

Our fantasy football draft went wonderful. My team rocks and leif is really happy with his. The clouds are in the sky keeping it cool in the house, since the ac is still broke. Leifs in a good mood. He gets to bata test one of his favorite game series tonight after work. We are getting better with the idea of babies. And by that I mean next month we will talk about it again. We just like being happy and we are going to have to get our minds around the fact that kids make you happier and more fulfilled.

Yard work

Day three of eating right and we are doing okay. We mowed and weed eated. Man am I hot. And our ac has been broke since last sunday. The man looked at it today and said it might be awhile until it gets fixed. Yay for the hottest month of the year. At least we are sweating off pounds. Sticking to our all meat diet leif is making ribs tonight for our fantasy football draft. Wish we luck.

Eating right

I finally stepped on the scale and have had enough. Eating better starts today. We want shopping for good food . We are not eating any bread. So sad. I love bread. At least leif said I can still eat cheese.  We think bread is why I can't lose weight and McDonald's is why he can't. So no fast food means saving money and not eating late at night means the food is not just sitting in our tummies. We are getting more comfortable with wanting to get pregnant but I told leif I want to lose weight before I get knocked up so I can be a cute  pregnant lady and not an oh my god is she pregnant or just fat lady. Leif has us eating meat meat and more meat and I have us eating low low calorie snacks for cravings between meat and our next meat.

I've been doing a lot of thinking about kids and back to school shopping.  Man, kids cost a lot of money.  Every year you have to get them new clothes because they grow out of all of their old ones. I was thinking if we have girls you buy a bunch of accessories that they can mix and match with some basics every year. Like simple outfits with cute things to wear with everything.  Every year they have more of a variety to match clothes up with. But what do you do with boys. They rip all their pants and stain all of the shirts. What is the boy version of accessories.  All I can think of is switching their shoes up by buying different color laces for their basic colors. Not as cool as cute belts, bracelets, necklaces and  headbands.  I need help with ideas for boys.

Our dog buckeye is turning six on the 23rd and we are not really sure what to do for him yet. I'm thinking frozen apples in ice because he loves ice and green apples.  Little puppy popsicles.  He would love them. I hope our dog isn't too odd. Ice cubes and apples sound really lame but he loves them so much.  If only leif and I loved apples and ice as much then maybe we wouldn't be so chubby

Sleeping late

So we still haven't sat down and had the talk, I think it will take a couple of weeks to get use to the idea of starting babies. For now we are enjoying all the things you can do without a baby. Like sleeping until noon or hopefully winning a trip to Disney world. I figure we will get use to the idea of babies between this month and next month. We can't put it off forever and we have a lot of money going into the baby fund that leif made us start so its only a matter of time
