Today I'm thankful for healthy kids. Although at times I get irritated with all their whining and bickering, I do realize how very blessed I am to have them both. Happy, healthy, rambuncious and rowdy.
The past few months I haven't taken very many photos of the kids. Mainly due to the fact that I get the above response to any camera pointed in their general direction. It's really quite frustrating.
So I've relegated myself to shots like the one above. Zooming in close enough, so as not to capture the offending tongue. I'm hoping this stage passes quickly.
Dave has been teaching Bayleigh to hit golf balls; since we've got such a nice level dirt area out in the back yard at the moment. She's getting pretty good, and I dare say she could probably beat me. It's been YEARS since I picked up a club. I think the last time was when I was about 6 months pregnant with Bayleigh. WOW! I'd hate to see what my swing looks like now.
The DirectTV guy installed the new satellite today. We dumped Dish after they told us it would cost $100 for them to come and put the dish back up after we had the house re-roofed . . . and I also downgraded our landline service. We're now saving about $30.00 per month . . . at least for the first 10 months of our contract with the new cable company. So . . . the kids are happy (they have more channels to watch), we're happy (because we're saving some money) and life is good.
I'm hoping to stash the money we're saving, back for a new pair of running shoes. I may just have to wear the ones I've got until they fall apart, though. I always hate spending money on clothes and such, when it could be used for so many more important things (like a new lens for my camera! lol). Aw well . . . such is life!
