Good vibes coming your way for the adoption to happen soon, Jennifer! I hope this is your year.
L, look at how cute you were as a child! I'm sorry C had to have her tooth pulled. We went to see the Rise of the Guardians at the cinema today, and Travis was talking about how he can't wait for his teeth to come out so that he can get presents in exchange for them. I did have to laugh at that movie how the bad guy (the boogie man) had an English accent...it seems like a big perecentage of the baddies in movies have an English accent....
I've been meaning to mention something to y'all that I saw on FB the other day. A lot of the people that I'm friends with in AR are quite religious. I ignore most of it, but the other day a high school friend mentioned that her dad has cancer. Then a few days after that, she put on her status that it was killing her that her dad was struggling with cancer and he hadn't accepted Jesus in to his heart. On one hand, I feel sad for her that she is obviously distressed that she thinks her dad won't have eternal salvation or whatever they believe but on the other hand, it annoys me that people actually let religion dictate that to them. For some reason, I like thinking that people have something in them that lives on once their bodies die and it upsets me to think that people think we are separated for being 'christian' or non-christian.
Any how. We've had a busy week so far. After the movies today, we took Travis out for dinner. We then went and met my teacher friend whom I work with at my current school. His boyfriend is away for the week, so he wanted someone to go out for coffee with him. It was funny on the way out, Travis said to me, "We're going to see your friend? Does she have a baby?" So I told him that we were going to see a male friend and he was like, "Does he have kids?" So I told him no and that he's not married and doesn't have kids. Travis thought about it for a few seconds and then he said, "So, he lives alone has to do the housework himself?" LOL. This kid is nuts.
We went and picked Cash up from daycare at the end of the day and his key worker said that he'd entertained them all day by singing that One Direction song, "Live While We're Young" over and over. Both my boys love to sing and they actually sing in key. It's quite cute.
DH and I have met up with a few friends this week whom we haven't seen in awhile. A lot of them seem to have become more materialistic since we saw them last. As in, they're driving flashier cars, upgrading to bigger houses and getting more techno gadgets. It annoys DH, but I'm a little oblivious to it all. We live a relatively debt-free life, which in return means we don't worry about money at all, but I think DH feels a bit inferior to everyone especially since they're all driving things like Range Rovers and Audis and their kids all have their own i-pads. I guess it's his sister and BIL that rub him the wrong way the most. I guess he feels like as they move up in the world, we are stuck looking like the poor relations. I can't be bothered with their keeping up with the Joneses outlook on life. I'm sure Travis will soon ask me why some of his friends/cousins have so many material things from Santa and I'll just have to let him in on the secret that it's the kids' parents who've bought them certain things.
