Bits and Bots

A little bit of this, a little bit of that. I've got a few things on my mind but not enough for it to be separate blog posts...

*We had a good weekend; even if Geo worked the whole darn time. We went yard saling and I found the most amazing deal-I got a 4.5 qt cast iron dutch oven for three dollars! THREE DOLLARS!
Geo's relieved because now he doesn't have to buy me the god awful expensive one I've been begging for (seen here) though I would definitely not return it if it was given to me as a gift ha ha

*Today is Geo's grandparents Alice and Harvey's 58th wedding anniversary-the people in Geo's family stay married forever, which is pretty awesome if you ask me. Geo's dad and step mom just celebrated 22 years, his grandparents have 58 years today, his aunt and uncle are in the mid 20's his mom and step dad are celebrating 25 years later this month, and his grandparents Witkowski are celebrating 60 years later this year!! My own parents have been married 31 years as well...Geo and I are the babies in this family as far as marriage goes; we'll be celebrating ten years in July.

*I've been trying to stress to the kids that good things happen to good people; this weekend they saw it in action. Gabe has struggled to find friends since moving here-it's hard to move halfway through the school year. This weekend, however, a new family moved into our building and one of the family members is a cute little tow headed seven year old named T. He and Gabe have hit it off famously and they actually have a playdate set for later today (though they'll be playing video games rather than legos or something ha ha) I told him that after all these long months without a best buddy it seems that he's finally found one. He was incredibly happy and I have it on good authority that T was pretty darn happy too!

*SarahAnne asked me very seriously yesterday where robots lived; she was very concerned that they lived in our building. She's incredibly weird.

*Thursday Bits was very VERY cross with me (I don't remember why now, I probably wouldn't let her put lipstick on the cat or some such business) She walked up to me with her arms crossed in front of her and said "That's it, I'm not living with you ANYMORE! I'm going to go live with *pause* a family of *longer pause* squirrels who will treat me nicer" Then she lost it laughing. Apparently the thought of living with squirrels was funnier than remembering how cross she was with me.

*School ends on Wednesday, however we'll be just as busy for the next two weeks-Bits starts dance camp this afternoon with Grandma Dyan and next week GABE has dance camp with Grandma. Gabe is quite cross that he isn't doing soccer camp first, but I haven't been able to find a summer soccer league yet-I'm looking kid, I'm looking!

and on that note, hope you had a lovely weekend and have a great week!

Bitsy delights me so much I can't even believe it sometimes.

We imagine we're going to be moving soon and oomph the thought of moving Nathan in the middle of the school year I'm so glad to hear Gabers has found a friend! Kudos to T for havin great taste in friends!
