Just the week’s randomness.
You know what’s awesome about PCSing? The military is a small world, especially the Marine Corps. Odds are you are going to know someone at your new location. I had lunch with a friend from Okinawa yesterday. We weren’t the best of friends, time didn’t allow that, but we were still friends. I’m glad that we reconnected. It was also nice to get out of the house! I don’t do enough!
This guy got new glasses. He was in desperate need of them. He originally got glasses in kindergarten, almost 2 years ago. We bought him 2 pairs so he would have a backup. He outgrew the first pair. The second pair kept getting bent and I’d take them in to have them fixed. Last summer they finally said they could not be bent back. We bought the same frames and just put the old lenses in. Kids are hard on glasses! They wouldn’t sit straight anymore and were just all out of whack. JCPenney’s was having a sale for $25 kids glasses (even though they ended up costing double that with his lenses). He got 2 pairs again. He looks so much better!
I did something. Something I swore I would never do. People have tried to convince me to do it for what seems like years. Maybe it has been years, I don’t know. I’ve stood my ground and held off. Who needs one more thing to clutter up my day? Not this girl! I did it though. I still don’t think I’ll use it to it’s full advantage (contest though, I will!). I warned my husband that I crossed to the dark side, but being the man that he is, he had no idea what I was talking about. Please pray for me and then come follow me. I’ve joined Pinterest.
The little one needs more. We aren’t getting out as much here and she isn’t going to preschool. I need ideas for what to do with her at home. I can get her to sit down and work on her letters, but it lasts all of 4 minutes. We play games (like Go Fish) to help with her numbers, but she needs more. Any ideas or any sites that would be helpful? I signed us up for a Mommy and Me gymnastics class, but it doesn’t start for a few more weeks. The library has some activities, so we need to check that out too. I need to keep this girl busy without spending tons of money.
September is a no eating out month. We don’t normally eat out that much, so it shouldn’t be too hard. I tend to be out and about running errands though, get hungry, and drive thru for something quick. None of that anymore! Well, I did lunch out today, but that was to meet my friend and it was the one exception! I mean that, too!
