My Ancestors were Clear...

Great day today. Everyone woke up in a good mood this morning. Finn was content to be a tea cup in his saucer this morning when I wasn't in the room. So I got a little house work done. Then it was off to the in-laws for a very delicious homemade breakfast of blueberry pancakes with homemade blueberry syrup, biscuits and gravy and free-range eggs. Ate well but small portions with a yummy cup o' Joe...
Finn stayed there while we came home with Chloe. While she was down for her nap we cleanedthe garage. You could barely walk when it all began and now we could park 2 cars in there, assuming we had 3 cars. :)
Then I ran around to Walgreens and Krogers to pick up a few things and then to pick up Finn. Got some good deals but nothing specatular. Although my big find for the day were two amazingly HUGE steaks (we're not sure what they were, but they were excellent quality, very tender and juicy). They were on manager special for 5.98, normally 9.50. And they weren't all grey like they usually are on special. So for dinner we had the steaks and parsnip chips (thanks baby for such a delicious meal!)
We also took a trip Kmart as a family. I was hoping to find great deals on the P&G they had on special. Nothing amazing. So I just got a bunch of kitty litter. (3 bags of Tidy Cat - we're talking GIANT bags - for 10.00 total.) And Chloe got a toy for being such a great girl today. She reminds me of that poem - There was a little girl who had a little curl right in the middle of her forehead. When she was good, she was very, very good. But when she was bad she was horrid! We don't normally "reward" her for doing what she's suppose to do, but she was kind of extra special today.
When I was at my in-laws this morning, I agreed to join my mother-in-law and cousin-in-law in Zumba classes at a local church. The classes are free, they just ask for a donation or canned good, etc. So, it's not going to cost an arm and a leg. But, for those of you who have never had the misfortune of watching me dance, well let's just say, this isn't going to be pretty...A good friend of mine once told me that my ancestors weren't white, they were clear....I have zero rhythm. Grace and coordination? We're not on speaking terms...I think we're starting this week or next, so the post from that may be title: When Erin Met Earth... or Letters from an ER.


  1. Glad you are adding some exercise - I'll be interested to see how you like Zumba :)

  2. I think the big question is will they let me return. ;) Love you!
