The above picture is Brady on his *motorcycle.* My grandparents had this exercise machine and it's very difficult to use and you don't get a whole bunch of results using it....so they gave it to my parents who gave it to us...and after not ever using it...we bequeathed it to Brady. He plays on it everyday. :) Brady only has a couple of toys that he actually plays with...his trucks. Trini too...they just don't play with toys. An old vitamin bottle tickles her pink and keeps her busy all day, so for now I'm most pleased with the absence of "stuff" that DOESN'T clutter their room (or our house.)
My deal of the day today at CVS...I got two boxes of Kellogg's cereal, a box of Nutrigrain bars, 2 packages of Trident gum and a thing of Ricola cough drops for 69 cents out of pocket. Oh it felt so good. :) AND I got 5 extra care bucks back so I actually MADE money. This is getting most addictive - tis'a good addiction though.
Zac and I are still striving to be debt free but it's taking some work. Not only debt free but to have savings goals as far as for long term and we are trying to save an emergency fund. On Friday we begin only paying for things in cash. I'll miss my rewards that I get when I use my credit card but I do think we will spend much less...and hey...yard sale season is just around the corner!
We joined a gym! That's our biggest news yet. Because of Zac's knees and the doctor REALLY recommending him not running anymore he really had no other way to get good cardio exercise. Plus, with soccer being taken away from him we found it very important for him to be able to get involved in something right away to keep his spirits up and his weight down. I've LOVED it too because I've been able to exercise FINALLY in my pregnancy and the kids have a very clean nursery with the sweetest sitters. That honestly was the part that kept me from joining a gym all along is that I was concerned about leaving them with anyone but these ladies are in their late 50's and the room is very open to where you can see what's going on...it's very clean because our gym is actually owned by a hospital. Today I was told that Brady is the best little boy and that Trini is the sweetest little thing...so see...perks for me. Get exercised up and encouraged up in one hour. :) Oh...and I get to shower there TOOOOOO!!!!!!
