I Actually Remembered...

Thirteen Things about Trinity's Life

1. My mom called me up yesterday asking to spend time with the boy. I guess she has been missing him. She used to keep him every overnight on Wednesdays before my hubby's schedule changed. Now he hardly every spends more than a few hours with her a week.

2. I mowed the grass last night for hopefully the last time this year. And my hubby trimmed up the bushes so the yard actually looks half way decent.

3. Every few months I like to have a major house cleaning, so last night my hubby and I worked our butts off! He cleaned the shower (he actually took the doors off and everything!) and the litter box, vacuumed, folded laundry, and did a few maintenance tasks around the house.

4. I scrubbed the kitchen counters, organized the junk drawer and the tupperware, cleaned up the all the stuff lying around in the kitchen and on the dresser (I can actually see the top of it now!), cleaned both bathrooms (even around the bottoms of the toilets), windexed all the mirrors and the front door, cleaned out my closet and stored items in the crawlspace, switched around summer and winter clothes, washed all the rugs and towels, and mopped all the floors!

5. My parents dropped off the boy...and a Caramel Moolatte!!! It was soo good! And I have been craving one for a while. But I'm glad I did all that house work to work it off!

6. My hubby didn't like his I might have helped him eat it!

7. Even with all that cleaning, my hubby and I still got to bed before midnight. What an accomplishment...heehee!

8. Believe it or not, I was too tired last night to blog. Shocking, I know!

9. I love ending sentences with exclamation marks!!!!!!!

10. My hubby and I are going to try to finish up our Christmas shopping tonight. We actually have the money to do so since I just got paid. (This doesn't include the gift cards we will be getting.)

11. We also need to grocery shop tonight. I never write up a list since I only buy items on sale. Even if we need an item, like say strawberry jelly, I won't get it if it's not on sale (we have been out for a few weeks but I won't pay full price...I'm stubborn like that).

12. I am soooo looking forward to Halloween! My son and I are going to look so cute together! I'll be sure to post some pics of us on Tuesday!

13. I think the family is planning on getting our pictures taken this weekend. We usually go the the same portrait studio every time since they always have such a great portrait package deal. I'll also be getting holiday greeting cards that I send out every year. I think it's nice for everyone to get an updated pic of the family every Christmas.

YOur Christmas shopping is almost finished? I'm so impressed! Not sure what a moolatte is, but since I"m not a coffee fan, I probably would've let you have mine too:)

Yes Jes, we are almost done. I like shopping all year round since we don't have a lot of money to spend all at one time (for the 55 people on our list). I also get great sales by shopping all year. I buy summer items in the winter and winter items in the summer.

But I think my fav sales are right after C-mas sales!!! I find so many great items that I hold onto for the next C-mas!

Cool! I want to cut grass again, but haven't been able to because my parents sold our house. Sigh.
