Just another manic Monday.

I called our mortgage company today to see if we could get our mortgage payment reduced. Apparently you need to have an income to qualify for a reduction. Ok, if I HAD an income, I wouldn't be asking for a reduction. Anyway, I guess it makes sense? I'm going to buy my husband a pair of roller skates so he can serve burgers at Sonic in order to qualify us.

Every Monday night we have Family Home Evening and part of the agenda is "Musical Numbers" when each child gets to sing a song, do a dance or both. Tonight Sarah sang her ABC's:
Abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz. Now I know my abc's, next time won't you visit me.

She's my social child. I guess I've never taught how to sing the song correctly.

I should probably also teach her to hold her fingers correctly. (She's not flipping the bird.)

My favorite thing to do right now is watch this little girl walk. She's finally mastered it by the age of 14 months. Her heart definitely belongs to me.


  1. ummm...we just found a cheap mortgage in maryland! you could move there...and find a job! and then alice can come and clean your toilets! btw, you know you can't name your next daughter alice, now. it just wouldn't be right!!

  2. Ok, so cheap is all relative. Are they giving away homes in MD? I'm excited tha you guys are buying a home. It's a great time to buy!

    We are saving our letter 'A' name for Amber.

  3. Isn't it silly that you can't refinance or adjust a mortgage payment without a job, but you can pay them all of your savings (and more!) while looking for a new job.

    Oh, and in response to per amberjill's comment, my Alice will not come clean your bathroom...though she might try to play in your toilet.
