Things around here have been a tad hectic. Alexander had a terrible couple of weeks. First he had a virus that gave him 5 days of horrible diarrhea, followed by about 3 days of being well, only to get another stomach virus that was all about barfing. This one only lasted 3 days, but he cut his last front tooth and 4 molars during those 3 days. It was heinus. Mark my words. Heinus. He's fine now, thank God.
Aside from the teeth, Alexander has been learning to do some really cool things. He can stack 3 and 4 blocks. He can say "Touch", "touch that", "again", "dog", "cat", "uh-oh", "this", "that", "dada". He can also sign for "more" and "please" Of course, he doesn't say "moma". Boo! It'll come in time.
Other than that, we are rocking and rolling around here. I'm trying to get ahead on bills, like paying off my car a little early, and clearing up the house renovation stuff on my credit card (at 1.9% interest). I think that I'm going to have to cut 2 things out of my life that I haven't been committed to: Curves and Weight Watchers. I haven't had the time to go to Curves since the summer. That's $49 bucks a month. As for WW, I haven't been working the program, I haven't been attending meetings. My head just isn't in it. Strangely, I've been losing a bit of weight on my own, so I think I'm going to quit that at least for a little while. That's $39.95 a month. So, that's 88.95 I could be putting towards the principal on my car.
