Well, it's Monday.....

Yeah, still not a big fan of Monday's.....like I said on Friday I may work at home but Monday's are still no fun....One thing I can say about Monday's, I am really good about getting to the gym.....not sure why, must be cause it is the start of a new week.....So we had a great weekend of not doing much.....We decided not to paint our wall in our bedroom until yesterday.....I must say the Cargo Brown wall looks awesome....I think we are planning on spending the week in the guest bed so we can finish the other 3 wall with Antique Brown.....Man I can not wait to get a new bed (upgrade from our Queen to King or Cal King) and bedding!.....here is the Cargo Brown, its still drying...

So I don't know about you, but my kids want and think they need everything.....This weekend Kiara decided she wants a Pink Pedal Car and MJ wants a Pink Pedal Car, a Dora Bike with a Dora Helmet and a Barbie Pink Jeep.......Yes, MJ is my child that wants EVERYTHING she sees.....Which makes it hard to take her shopping.....Which I had to do this weekend....We try to split the girls up to get tasks done....but yesterday all 3 girls wanted to come grocery shopping with me....OH Brother.....Nothing like being half way done shopping when Kiara goes "I have to go potty mommy" and then Mikiah goes "Me too Mommy"......Man after about 10 min of potty-ing and trying to get MJ out of the Toy Isle. (that took what felt like forever)......we were back in the grove of shopping....I am happy to report both did actually had to go....and why do they have to put the bathroom by the Toy Isle?..(talk about smart placement)......So much for in and out shopping.....Oh well, I suppose I need to keep practicing my patience.....Hope Daddy had some good alone time with out the kiddos!!!.....So, while shopping I did find a new "Snack of the Moment".......I am addicted to Quaker Quakes Rice Snacks Ranch Flavor.....So freaking good.....I limit my self to the serving size of 10 cakes otherwise I think I would eat the whole bag......they are light and flavorful!.....And we even got done spending $15 less then I planned.....Which was nice considering how high food prices are getting......not to mention Gas......All which I find frustrating.....I swear gas was like $1.17 when I was first driving.....At least where we live isn't as high as California, Oregon or Washington.....we are anywhere between $3.39-$3.43 a gallon....Now multiply that by 30 gallons and you know what our gas bill every 3 weeks (at least it lasts that long one of the best things about me working home besides all the time with the kiddos).......I suppose I am just ranting.....Milk prices also make me mad (they are down a little bit)....but man remember when $1.99 a gallon was expensive.....now we pay any where from $2.99 a gallon to $4.89 a gallon......and we got through milk....probably 2-3 gallons of Fat Free a week and 1/2-3/4 gallon of 2% a week and Lila goes through 1/2-1 gallon of whole milk in a week.....You know I better stop before I get more pissy.......

Well not much else is new.....I will try to get some new pics of the kids taken to post for all those wanting more pics, Mom :~)...........
Update For Grandma Paula: Here is a pic of Kiara turing on the water outside.....

I know, I love pictures of the girls. It makes my day. I miss them so much. When you are used to seeing them evey other week, when my RDO comes I get down because I know I can't hop in the car and drive to see them. After three years of doing it. It hard for me. So, Thank you for your Blog and any picture you can get on it. LOVE you all, MOM

I really had to smile last week when we were talking to your kids...Kiara was on the phone for several minutes with us...we were saying goodbyes and about to hangup when MJ wants to talk...which is great because we don't talk with her as much on the phone. Well, she gets on and tells us she wants a pink pedal car...that was about it, right to the point then she's done with us...too funny! I'll bet grandma P got the same request :)
