Now, where was I?

So...the Ebay stuff has all been shipped away to other loving homes. The closets appear to be a little bit neater, and I've got some extra spending cash in my pockets....I even bought my hubby a portable GPS--which we've lovingly named Gertrude.

Yes, we name things. We name cars, and obviously silly things like GPS systems. We have an SUV named Brutis, and Rick's car is named Goldie. Since we've been married, we've driven Chuck, Hottie, Murry, Blitzen, Dash, Mean Green, and now Brutis and Goldie. What's that?? We have too much time on our hands, AND we're nerds??? I couldn't agree more!

What in the world did we ever do without a GPS? I'm sure I will never use a mapsco again. I love Gertrude's sweet little voice, "Turn right in 2.2 miles." And she's even polite when I miss a turn. She kindly says, "Recalculating." Rick and I giggle at what we think Gertrude really wants to say when we miss a turn.

Other than Ebaying, buying GPS's, and naming's been a busy week of vomit and poop clean-up around here. Yummy, I know. Baylor got the worst of it, but she's up and at'em again.

The boys started their first season of soccer this week. I'm officially a "soccer mom." I've ALWAYS wanted to be a "soccer mom." Now that I am, I'm not sure what all the hype was about.

I'm off to watch American Idol. And now that I've confessed to naming cars and to watching American Idol, I'm sure all of you will be praying for me diligently this week. Thanks!!

Mike has a GPS on his phone and her name is Lola! We love her and she is just part of the family on trips :)

I'm sorry you all had yuckies! Lucy had rotovirus last year and oh my word, talk about vomit... that was a long 10 days. Glad you are all on the mend. Love you.

I'm so glad to hear we're not the only ones who name things!! Somehow that makes me feel a tad more "normal."

Claudy Claud Claud!
I don't think you are a nerd... although, we don't name things so much. We do watch American Idol though!

Sorry the kiddies were sick.. I am glad you didn't get it though!
