Blogger's Block

I already posted this morning, but it was kind of a lame post and I had every intention of coming here to post something more substantial when Katie went to bed.  So now I'm here and I don't know what to write about.  Not good on day 2 of 30 days of blogging.  So here are some random updates.

Katie is starting to do the "monkey see, monkey do" thing.  It's so cute that she repeats most of what we say and tries to mimic our gestures too.  It also means that Momma & Daddy need to watch what they say a little more carefully.  So far, so good, but I know the day is coming.  She also loves playing with our cats.  BJ in particular, (only because Tess is smart enough to hide!) and she is constantly trying to chase him.   Last night she was pulling his tail so hard that we had to pull her off of him.  He was really good though and didn't hiss or try to bite her.  She also likes playing with her dollies, her farm animals and has recently discovered hats.  Too cute!

Doug is facing his toughest schedule yet, this semester.  His adviser told him that if he made it through this semester, he'd graduate with no problems.  He's definitely on track to graduate.  :)

I am working Saturdays through the end of this semester to save us a little $$ on daycare expenses.  It hasn't been too bad so far, but I'll be glad when it's over.  Even just working 4 hours on a Saturday really eats up your whole day.  I'm definitely looking forward to having 2 days off in a row again soon.

Speaking of saving money, we paid off the truck this week.  Combining that with our recent credit card pay off and some new legislation that gives Doug another 6 months of unemployment benefits means that we're breathing a huge sigh of relief tonight.  At this rate, we're looking at 18 months or so of being a one income family while Doug finishes school.  If we get enough stuff paid off/caught up, it might end up being doable.  And who knows, maybe during all of this we'll figure out a way to live on that one income and I might just be able to realize my SAHM dreams.
