Did you blink....if you did you missed alot.

We bought a motorcycle today. What you say? Well I told you the hubster was paying way too much in gas to drive the gas guzzling 1978 Ford truck to work every day. Like 100 plus bucks a week for gas. So we were looking for an inexpensive 4 door car. Naturally we ended up with a motorcycle, right? It's gorgeous and we got a great deal. And can I just say how nice it is to have a 754 credit score so that we can buy basically anything we want in one day. In fact we've perfected the art of the one day vehicle sighting, vehicle salivating, vehicle loan acquisition, and vehicle purchase. Protect those credit scores ladies and germs and keep your debt mom taught me that years ago and she was so right.

What else is going on?

Not much typing this week so I did a ton of cleaning and ate my weight in chocolate cake. Had the three older kids over for dinner. Took out the radiators in the house and found a nice wood floor in the hallway (first nice floor we've found so far...every other wood floor has had to be covered up due to damage). Do you know how you take radiators out of a house? Big radiators? I didn't but I learned. You smash them with a sledgehammer. They then leak, ruining the carpet, thus requiring you to pull up the carpet (which was going to be pulled up anyway eventually) and thus discovering beautiful hardwood floors.

Crickets are chirping in surrogacy land again. The Swedish guys are still wanting me to carry another sibling for them. Very hard to say no but they need a surrogate from Colorado or Massachusetts due to new insurance laws so it couldn't be me anyway. A lot of my surro friends are preggo right now so I'm living vicariously through them.

Oldest boy is still working and now his girlfriend also has a job. They are not only paying their own bills, they are upgrading and getting cable and internet. Let the living begin.

Hubster loves, loves, loves his new job. Yay.

Granddaughter is too cute and is crawling. Grandson is adorable. I think I will forgive the kids for making me a grandma at 40.

Oldest daughter is 21. How the heck did that happen?

Two youngest are a month or so from graduating from 8th grade and being high schoolers. How did that happen?

Summer vacation is booked and paid for. Summer basketball and other activities for the kids are reserved.

And that's about it. Like I said, if you blinked you missed a lot.

  1. Hi,

    I am a PhD Student in Paris, France and do a research on surrogate mothers. I was wondering if you might be interested to participate in my study? it would imply me sending you through email several questionnaires (3) and a consent form. It would be anonymous. I already have met with several surros but the more the better for the research. Let me know if you'd would be interested in that. I can answer all your questions too.

    Take care and !
