Cute Photos Not Happening

I'm not sure what emotion Trin is expressing here...I think sheer joy that she now is the owner of a big girl bed....courtesy of Ikea. I found the duvet at a thrift store for a dollar a year ago and have been waiting for it to find a home/bed...let me just say that I am a HUGE fan of duvets and their inserts. I LOVE the fact that a top sheet isn't necessary .... this really helps little kids learn to make their beds without being overwhelming to them. And then there is the *oh so good* feeling like you are sleeping under a cloud....ahhhh. I still don't have a nice down comforter but this will change someday...I'm sure of it.
And this expression I think is suppose to resemble a pirate? I was taking a picture of his new shoes ( Old Navy...picture below) and he posed and came up with this face. I think it's because of the skulls or something...he calls them his "pirate shoes." Brady has gotten some really great new duds here lately...I think that since I now know that his clothes can be passed down TWO times I don't mind shelling out a little bit more for some of his clothes...


Yes...that's right..I paid NINE dollars for these...gasp...compared to my normal 3 dollar budget for kid's shoes. I've had a really hard time finding used clothes or even dirt cheap clothes for the kiddos here recently - I think it must be their age or something. Perhaps I shouldn't try to find clothes dirt cheap? Anyways...my philosophy though has change dramatically in the last two years that I will LOVE what I wear, that it WILL be comfortable, that I will have LESS but BETTER. So far I'm liking it...and am using the same thinking for what I find for the kids.
So, my really great blog with lots of photos isn't happening AGAIN because my computer is acting up and I'm unable to upload photos. Grrrrr. I just found out that Zac is also having a class next week too - bringing my grand total of alone time, without a vehicle to 5 out of 6 days. yeehaw. I will definitely be using Sunday (his off day) to buy some groceries and take a LONG shower...sheer joy. I love the feeling of a well stocked fridge and a good long soak (those two things have nothing to do with one another.) Today I've been surviving on basmati rice with butter and salt and walnuts - not having a car really messes with a girl's meal plan yall.
Anyways, hopefully on Sunday Zac can fix the ol' computer and several of my other *isolation issues* and I'll feel all refreshed for Monday and Tuesday. Hope everyone has a swell weekend.
