I think Emma’s addicted to computer video games. She’s figured out how to use the Playhouse Disney web site. She can go from show to show, game to game and play them all by herself. I embarrassed at how many HOURS she was on there yesterday. But she loved it. That was the first time I had let her stay on that long. Lexi was in a really good mood yesterday. Not sure what that was about. But she was all smiles all day.
I cooked dinner last night and then all four of us went to the gym. It was going to be just me then Emma wanted to go but she wanted Lexi to go. It was pouring down rain and I didn’t want to take both of them by myself so I convinced Scott to go. So all of us trekked through the rain to the Y. Lexi was getting a bit antsy about staying when I was signing her in. But then they had Beauty and the Beast on and she stayed with no problems. And Emma said Lexi didn’t cry at all. Yay!
I ended up at Starbuck’s at 9:30 last night with my computer. I stayed until about 11 and worked. I couldn’t connect to the Internet so it was pure work. And I got A LOT done. I’m thinking about doing the same thing tonight.
So looks like we might be “moving again” on this land thing. Scott randomly rode down the road to see again if he liked the street and ran into a neighbor who is a school teacher from our high school. He talked to her for awhile. Apparently her family and a couple others own hundreds of acres around there and don’t plan to sell it. The two that are for sale are probably going to be it. And the kicker is he found out that the owner of the land is an old family friend. So Scott called him up right away and talked to him about the land. Supposedly he has already talked to a guy who wants both lots but if he’s not committed, he’ll sell us one lot. So we’re back to figuring out if we can afford that. Which I think we can especially since both of us are due for a raise next month. Scott already got his notice for how much his is and I should be due for a decent one since it’s been almost 2 years since I’ve had one. Plus, we do have money that we waste (don’t we all!). If we were desperate, I’d tap into the money we set aside for savings, but I REALLY don’t want to do that. I don’t think it’s a smart thing to do anyway. If anything, I’d be willing (grudgingly) to give up some things like the gym. What’s really cool is we just started looking at some house plans the night before we found out all of this stuff. I sort of gave up on the land idea but for some reason it all keeps coming back to us. So maybe it’s an open door we need to walk through!
