Hi - I can't really think of a clever title today....

Hello all!

So the weekend was good. Michael made it home early enough to partake in some beer drinking with me and S and D. Then we all headed out for a change of scene and went to Lowies. OMG, it's a total dive and I know that and had been there before but jeez, on Friday it was terrible. We quickly left and headed to Sonny's and enjoyed the rest of the night. We didn't have enough of a crew to play beer pong, so that's why we ended up going out. Anyway, it was really fun. Gotta love the pregame sessions in the kitchen!

Saturday morning I went to the acupuncturist. She was really sweet and gave me some hope that all is not lost on the baby front. It just further solidifies my opinion that my doctor is an insensitive a$$. She did her thing and it seemed like something was happening. Maybe it's all in my head, but at least I feel better and that's all that really matters. I'm going to see her again next Saturday.

Sunday we ran around on errands. We went to BJ's and Walmart. We really need to plan these trips a bit better. We took my car since Michael's truck was loaded up with stock for work. It's not big deal at all, but you have to remember that I drive a Beetle. Now, normally, it wouldn't have been so bad, but since we needed TP and papertowels along with a few other things at BJ's that pretty much filled the car. Then we stopped in Walmart to pick up a few other things but of course they were all bulky too- A cooler, big thermos thing, and Lord knows what else and you can see how we'd have a stuffed car. Anyway, we needed the stuff and now we don't have to worry about paper products for a while.

Oh, yes I am a spazz, but I have to tell you about the steam mop. I used it in the kitchen yesterday and our cream floors are all shiny. It worked really well and really quickly so it didn't take that long at all. I'm sure future moppings will go even quicker because I'm not going to let the floor get so dusty again. I'm happy that it's a green product too. It just uses steam - no other chemicals or anything and the mop pad is machine washable so I don't have to waste money buying refills for it. It's just part of my little bits to save the world. ;)

I know I have to get some pics up as I've been sorely lacking in posting any lately. I am going to try to take some tonight once I finish my weekly home blessing. (That's just a basic cleaning routine for those of you that don't know about Flylady.) That way, you'll see how my house should look rather than the somewhat messy post-weekend state that it's in right now.

Well, that's all for now. I'll talk to you soon!

Glad to hear the acupuncturist is a good fit. Keeping my fingers crossed that it helps you and Michael!

And I've been looking into those steam mops. So it really does work? I'll have to start seriously looking into one now!

Thanks Karen! She was really nice and I think she'll be able to help, or at least keep me sane.

Oh, the steam mop is awesome. My mum thinks I'm a complete spazz, but once I told her how well it worked, she was like "Where can I get one of those?" LOL. There are a lot of them out there, but this one didn't cost too much so I thought it was worth a try. I think they have them at Linens 'n Things too if you have a coupon.
