Whew, I am SO glad...

that Ari went to bed at 6:30 tonight! He's been rough today, I know it's not his fault, he is cutting 4 molars after all, but it sure is hard on me. It doesn't help that today is day three of Matt being at work which means day three of only me to take care of the bean... The bright side is that if it's day three, that means there's only one more day until he's home! I can make it...

Anyway, we did venture out today, I didn't know what else to do. It was way too cold to be outside so we went to McAlisters for lunch and stopped by the Michael's in Rock Hill. I was hoping they'd have a better selection of the things I was looking for. Not really. That just means I spend less money though, so still a good thing. I picked up the last little bit of the Chelsea's Place line by Making Memories, and the pics I took of Ari in the yard yesterday are Perfect with a capital "P"...







Yesterday was such a good day for us, he was pretty happy all day and went to bed without a peep! My neighbor came over and brought me some leftover pizza, we sat and chatted for a few hours. She's really the only person in the neighborhood that I feel I have anything in common with. This is a strange neighborhood, we see it as a "starter" house where a LOT of the other people are perfectly happy to live here forever. There is absolutely nothing wrong with that, please don't think otherwise, it's just that we take pride in our home and are concious of resale value. Thus the new landscaping, new floors, new paint, etc. where some of the other people just let it go. I'm sure that's true of any neighborhood, it just bugs me to have to look at it constantly. That's why I bought pretty curtains, so I can close them and still have something nice to look at! Anyway, my neighbor and her husband feel the same way, this neighborhood is a stepping stone for them, so it's nice to see someone else with the same ambitions and goals that we have! Ok, that sort of seemed like a rant, not what I was intending... I do love my house!

Well, tonight is going to be totally lazy. I've spent most of my weekend on the computer and not actually scrapping so I made a batch of muddy buddies, printed some pictures and plan on scrapping until I can't keep my eyes open! Luckily we don't have any plans tomorrow so I am free to be a vegetable all day long. Later tater...

I love Ari's pics of the house. They are too cute! Such a little man. Ella saw his picture and said "ARI" I get what you are saying about your house. As much as I hate to say it, but that's what HOA are for to regulate the community for resale values. My townhouse HOA are assholes, but at least the neighborhood looks nice and we never had that to worry about. Call me later or message me
