Top 7

Things I've noticed, what's on my mind and random happenings:

1. While taking Nate to pre-school (Prek - 6th grade) I pass a female student my size (in stature and bust size) and a male student with a premature mustache. Kids are growing up way too fast.

2. Jake and I finally met with an attorney to put together a trust. Something we have had on our mind since Nate was first born. Remember the days when you didn't have any assets to put in a trust or little people's welfare to consider in your absence?

3. I was chugging along perfectly fine until recently when I had a disagreement with one of my docs over a test (to have it or not). I've always played by the rules, done what was asked of me, so I've struggled with this detour from what comes naturally to me. So, no test and while I'm confident (along with two other doctors opinions) I don't need it I find going against my doctors advice unsettling. Oh, and just so you don't think I've got a major medical issue..........I had a low iron count back in the fall. Doc says, "You're bleeding from need a colonoscopy." I say, "Yes, I am bleeding.......I'm a menstruating woman....I don't need a colonoscopy."

4. God bless Jake for working his buns off since our cruise (and the better part of the last 7 years). Never a complaint, just devotion to a thriving business and goal of working less in the future.

5. Overpaid our taxes and getting a refund........unheard of!

6. Signed Nate up for cooking school. A cute program for kids. Maybe soon he'll be cooking dinner for us.

7. Kid's are getting in touch with their feminine side today. Had to run into Wal-greens and I let them go through the 75% off bin of Easter stuff. They picked out these cute little Easter egg purses, but we're not calling them purses..........they're man bags.

Hope everyone has a great weekend.

1. I know. Makes me sad. Too many hormones in our chicken and beef!

2. Good! A necessary un-fun.

3. Well, you know me...I'm bucking those doctors all the time! LOL! So I can't help but say GOOD FOR YOU! :)

4. You are very blessed. Those of us with awesome husbands really just need to let our men know how much we appreciate them. In this day and time, guys like ours are hard to find!

5. Isn't it awesome?? We're getting a refund again for the first time in a long time. When I started my home-biz 6 years ago, we always had to pay and HATED it! We finally re-adjusted and are surprised to be getting a refund. We were just hoping to not have to pay much!

6. A kid who cooks TOTALLY ROCKS! Go Nate!

7. That's awesome :)
