What's Up? Wednesday


Guess all this "life" stuff is just getting in the way of blogging. Well, I actually have been in the blog world, just not posting. I keep pretty up-to-date with my bloglines and the ones on my follow list. Pretty handy tools. Other than that, Becky and I have started working on expanding Busy Mama in to new markets--Word Press and Live Journal. Pretty challenging for me. I have the pleasure of learning how to crack the codes. Actually, both use similar systems but I have some new tricks to learn. Won't bore you with any more of that.

Noah's speech class is going well. He is clear more often. We are working hard on the letter F right now. Who would have know it would be hard to make that sound. B's and P's are coming along rather well. My pet peeve is that he calls me "Monny". It gets so under my skin. His therapist has worked with him on it but he can't get it out on the fly. So, I have started making him say mommy 5 times each time he says it wrong. He does get frustrated. So I have a fine line to walk.

Mya is keeping busy with all of life. Preschool goes on as usual. Missed this past Monday because Mya had strep on Sunday. When she said she wanted to stay home, I didn't argue.

Keith and I keep busy. The housing market truly is crummy. We have only had one showing. Our realtor brought out a bunch of other Realtors yesterday to have them view our property and answer a questionnaire. Some of the comments sting but our realtor said to take them with a grain of salt as one realtor never had a teenager (Erin's room is um mm . . . messy . . . when did teenager become synonymous with PIG?) and one was a total neat-nick (said we had too much clutter . . huh!). Today I am cleaning E's room and de-cluttering Keith's office. I refuse to buy new appliances or carpeting at this time. Can't do much outside until it all greens up. There really is only so much we can do/afford to do.

Above is picture of them outside in bare feet. The reaction . . . . BRRRRRRRRRR!
