We had the girls birthday party Saturday night. Just family and D&D brought their girls. It ended up being Strawberry Shortcake themed. Mom took Emma cake shopping at Harris Teeter Friday and she fell in love with their new 3 story Strawberry Shortcake cake (which Emma thinks is REALLY funny –cake cake–that’s a joke, mommy!). It turned out really cute with the kids table all decorated and red, pink and green balloons. And the 3 older girls had a blast opening presents. It was like Christmas for all of them. Lexi dug into the cake. I had serve everyone else’s cake from the opposite side. Which we had PLENTY of cake. And poor Lexi would NOT take a nap Saturday so she was about in a daze by the time we got to the end of her presents and she fell asleep after everything was done. They all had a good time though. The double party worked out good. Not sure if we’ll do it next year since Emma will be 5 but it was great this year.

ebay scam got me
So apparently one of the transactions I thought legit wasn’t really. Looks like I’m going to be out around $800 or so. This stinks. In a bad way.
I did so much cleaning this weekend, it’s unbelievable. Really. I did my regular cleaning–floors, dusting, vacuuming, bathrooms, laundry, dishes. I’m always LUCKY to get that done. But this weekend, I cleaned out our hall closet, tupperware cabinet (yes, we HAD a LOT of tupperware), another kitchen cabinet and also finally went through all the crap on our kitchen counter–you know that counter/table that catches all the crap that comes into the house for future sorting. Yeah, well, I did all that sorting. I keep looking at my clean counter and then look at my clean cabinets underneath and smile thinking that those are clean too :).
I just caught myself dancing to a song on this show. Yikes.
I could have been scammed TWICE this weekend through ebay. It has now cost me over $10 because of fees. The first said he was going to pay with Western Union and have the box picked up through DHL. Well, it came time for DHL to pick it up and the money had not cleared. I cancelled the pickup and emailed the guy. Then realized he was no longer a user with ebay and emailed him and said it was a scam and I wasn’t shipping it. He never emailed me back.
So I put another laptop yesterday. I guy bought it overnight and said he would pay through paypal. He used to live in NC, was in Australia now and wanted the laptop shipping to his grandson in Nigeria and would have FedEx pick up the box. Yeah right. Just google Nigeria and ebay and you’ll see. So I emailed the guy and said I would not accept payment and would not be shipping it to him.
What is with these people?! It’s terrible!
End of 30 days
So my 30 days of no secular radio and no Grey’s Anatomy is over. I’m currently downloading a Grey’s episode that for whatever reason is not posted on abc.com. But believe me, I have no issues whatsoever spending $2 on catching up.
Listening to the radio today was a bit disappointing. I thought I would be SO glad to hear it but I wasn’t. Not saying I didn’t listen or won’t but I think I could definitely live without it for much longer if required.
So we had a great time in Maryland. Had a fun leaf pile fight on Thursday. Friday Mom, Heather and Grandma took the kids shopping and then we had a small, small party for Lexi’s party.
Saturday evening we had the big party for the whole family. It was like Christmas they got so much stuff and almost everyone was there. It was really nice to see everyone.
The ride home was ok. I got really car-sick which I am not used to. Lexi was a nightmare in restaurants. I mean, really, really bad. Actually, she was that way all weekend out.
I’m going to work tomorrow. First full day since Scott got hurt. Shouldn’t be bad for him. They have school in the morning and then his mom will come get them. We’re already planning a Mexican lunch. Yumm, can’t wait.
I voted today. Go vote if you haven’t and it’s not too late!!
Headed out of town
We’re headed out of town tonight. By the time I go to sleep tonight, I’ll be in Maryland. Yipee!
