Random Facts from Life Lately

Things have been crazy busy over here and I haven’t sat down at the computer to write out anything in a while.  So no better time than the present!!  So here you go.. random facts from life lately as they come train of thought to me!

  1. I have been having computer issues and they are now FINALLY resolved!! Thankfully I backed everything up before my hard drive died!!
  2. We are closing in on the end of the school year!! Whoohoo!! Hello, May I can’t wait for you to get here!
  3. I ordered our end of the year test evaluation.. Is it weird I kinda like giving the test to Sammy?  Also I think he kinda enjoys taking it!
  4. I have started planning our curriculum for next year and I am getting pretty excited!! However, I am still missing the core.. I am undecided on what to use for next year.
  5. Tim and I are going away for a week for our 10 year anniversary next month and I am really looking forward to it!
  6. Baseball season started last Saturday and Sammy seems to really be enjoying it!
  7. I spent several hours at the baseball field last Saturday… not exactly what I would have planned for my birthday but it was really fun! (Sammy is the catcher)                                                  2015-04-21 19.44.08
  8. I got a bike for my birthday and promptly ordered a different seat for it *winks*
  9. I am trying to watch less TV.. the nice weather is helping with that.. but I still would like to watch even less! 
  10. I got a crown last week…. I joked and said it was a birthday present! It didn’t feel like a great birthday present the night I had it done!                                                      2015-04-14 20.04.55
  11. We went on an amazing field trip earlier this month to the safari park!  2015-04-07 14.27.19 HDR
  12. Sammy’s birthday is coming up on Saturday!  I still can’t quite believe he is 8!
  13. I have so much stuff to do to get ready for the birthday weekend I am feeling slightly overwhelmed!  I stayed up late last night finishing up the light saber party favors (from pool noodles).
  14. We are trying Sammy on a new allergy medicine.  We were having behavioral problems on Claritin so we are giving Allegra a shot.  Unfortunately, there isn’t a generic for it.  I am hoping it will help him some since he has been sniffling and coughing since before Easter!
  15. I got One Line a Day (affiliate link) with some birthday money and I am LOVING it!!
  16. I am taking Sammy back to the orthodontist next week to see if we need to pull some (baby) teeth and make room I his mouth.  Sammy is not excited about that visit!
  17. I clipped off Tipsy’s fur and now she looks ridiculous but she is much cooler and happier!
  18. Sammy got an ingrown toenail in January.  It was pretty bad and required antibiotics.  Then the whole nail fell off.. Then the nail started growing out it was to low and growing into the end of the toe.  After several doctor’s visits and one not so helpful podiatrist visit we have the toenail finally growing out correctly!
  19. I have been reading a ton and I need some fiction recommendations!  Does anyone have some good fiction recommendations. 
  20. I have determined that watching TV kills Sammy’s imagination.  I love when he gets his toys out and plays but that doesn’t happen when TV is an option!  Even in limited amounts he still just walks around saying he is bored instead of getting something out to play with!  I need to figure out what that means going forward but something I have noticed since he had a TV restriction.
