Today we finally became the proud owners of a brand new car: an 09 deep blue Jeep Patriot. We have had our Dodge Neon for 4 years and Ben's 99 Grand Am since we first started dating, maybe 6 years... Traveling to Tulsa or just going grocery shopping has not been an easy task in our small cars since Jackson joined our family. Even though it will be Ben's car (since I got the last new one and since from 7:15-5:30, I pretty much can't leave the house), I am so excited because when I go grocery shopping or need to run errands, I will have space I need! YES!
Also, I have another little 3 year-old-girl starting on Monday. Then today I got a call from a woman I spoke with back in July who eventually decided NOT to enroll her 3 year-old boy, but was then referred to me by Lorraine Lee, and now has changed her mind. (Thank you so much Lorraine!!) So if both of these work out I will have a total of 9 kids including Jackson, but before you all go and start thinking I'm nuts...Two of them are half-day - one am, one pm - so I really will only have 8 kids incl. Jackson at a time.
Due to the new car adventure today and Jackson's 1 year pics this morning, I got nothing done around the house. Sigh, I hate not feeling ready for the week! It makes me feel like I have to do it all on Monday, and that just adds stress to my life that I don't need!
