Life as a reformed Zookeeper. Now living a life as a working mother who dabbles in karate, scrapbooking, and Coors Light!

Lucky... am lucky enough to have driven my car around yesterday and not have the hood fly up and smack my windshield. Apparently appearances on my car were deceiving, as they've deemed it unsafe to drive. Picking up rental car at 4:00 today. It's always a surprise on what you're going to get with those.... like Christmas!

...The twins did their karate class yesterday, and Erin managed to stay on the mat the entire time. Thank the forces that be for small favors. Perhaps he/she/it recognized the small fact that I'm teetering on the edge?

....Aaron, recognizing my close proximity to the edge, hired our neighbor to babysit for us while we went out to spend the gift certificate that Aaron's grandpa gave us last year for our anniversary. We went to Red Lobster and spent the entire thing. Was nice to get out and have a meal that didn't include yelling at anyone. Afterward, I drug him to Archiver's to spend my coupons (sorry, Judy, I know I usually hand them off to you!). the field guide I bought for my camera is making me like it a bit more. Apparently there is all kinds of stuff I can do to get good pictures. I still have to figure out how to make the equation work to not get grainy pictures in certain situations, but we'll see. I'm looking forward to the class on Sunday.

I don't need the Archiver's coupons so it is okay. No money and no time to shop equals no need for coupons. Plus, I get my own. So I only use yours when I feel greedy. Sorry about your car. I have never had a rental that did not suck.

Aaron hired a babysitter? Scott has NEVER hired a babysitter! Even for my surprise birthday party I hired my own sitter.

It is very nice that Aaron plans stuff for you guys to do - he's a great wife - I mean husband. I haven't had Red Lobster in ages. Sounds like a fun evening... :)

Hang in there!

Do you think Aaron would hire a babysitter so you and I could go hang out at Archivers? ;)
