Perhaps I should try to Be a Girlie-Girl After All.....

OK, so I just hopped out of the tub. I now have a red ass and red cheeks, because I really like HOOOOTTTT water, but I'm so much more relaxed than I have been in a long time. Am planning on drinking more in future, too. ;)

We went to an outlet mall this afternoon and dropped more money than I thought possible. Aaron's fully kitted out for the new school year, sans a new pair of boots. Autumn's still a little way away, though, so we still have time. I was also able to score some new duds for myself. Aside from clothing that I can wear outside with the tots, I haven't really bought much new for myself in a while. I got a new pair of shorts (that are a bit shorter than I usually wear, but didn't look hideous...though I swear they do something to the mirrors in fitting rooms, because it never seems to look as good or fit as well when you get it home! ROFL), a dress, and a few tops. Oh, and a little hoochie-mamma skirt that Aaron convinced me to buy that I definitely will be wearing full-bottom undies with! No Bridget Jones-like scenes for me, thankyouverymuch!

I also got the twins some pull-on shorts, as we're starting to potty-train in earnest now. This is some scary shit for me, as I'm already tired enough. It's tough work sometimes! ack! But, when we got home, both kidlets peed on the potty!! So hopefully that is a good sign. Erin still just pees down her leg like it's no big deal, but we'll see. Cross your fingers for me!

OK, hope everyone's having a good weekend!

Gina, I wish I lived a bit closer, I'd come help you pack, girlie! Congrats on the sale of your house, and good luck with all your move plans to Hawaii! I shall be coming to visit you soon! ;)
