I get all hyped up and start planning something - it can be any scale (large or small or even gigantic). I spend 2-3 straight days planning extensively and get it into perfect order, then I rework something and change my mind completely.
This is what has happened to the family vacation planning. I have the entire trip worked out down to which rides and shows the girls would enjoy. I even changed up the entire plan to include 3 days at Disneyland per my friend Jesse's suggestion because I had not realized it was that close, and it would be totally awesome! We were even going to do a princess lunch! How fun would that be with two little girls??
Anyway, last night I started up a new plan and I think we are going to postpone the Family Vacation. Brian was saying we could wait until January and go when it will be less crowded. So we shall see when we wind up on our family vacation.
This rework came up because we realized that instead of spending the money on a trip we could put it into savings and start saving up for buying a house after Brian is finished with school. Once he's done with school we should hopefully have some real kind of income coming in - that is if he doesn't decide to do graduate school. Anyway, you can see why I was so excited to plan something stable I could put in the calendar - everything beyond next year is completely up in the air! Who knows what will come next? I always fear the worst!
In better news, Gwen has started walking! Real walking! She took her first steps early in July, but really didn't seem to care. What I think she was doing was getting used to it a little bit at a time and then she just took off! She now will walk all the way down the hallway of our house into her room! She is so smart too because she will stop and hold on to the wall to rest if she needs to! The poor child has been teething so badly. I keep forgetting and wondering why she is being so fussy! She has 8 teeth in the front which she has had for awhile now. She just got 2 of the back ones last week, and there are two more giant ones pushing up from the bottom!
Naomi has all on her own started sounding out letters whens he seems them. I haven't attempted this with her too much so I think that she has picked it up from Word World! She doesn't use it for real words though. She asks me to write a three or four letters usually S, M, and P ( her favorites), then she sits and sounds them out individually - she's so funny!
Brian is almost done with his term. His finals are Wednesday and Thursday. I think he has done well this semester! Unfortunately the week he has off from school I have to go to Jury Duty! How awful! I'm a little excited to actually sit on a Jury, but I just hate the idea of having Brian stay home so I can go. Last time I was called to Jury Duty it was cancelled. I think it'd be too much to hope for that again!
