February 1999


Tonight I am sleepy, feeling almost weary. I didn't get enough sleep last night and I have been taking care of other people's children today. Spawn of Satan actually behaved as I watched him this morning but my niece MsEm decided to eat an old bowl of oatmeal without asking me if she could eat it. It had been sitting out for over a day and was meant to go in a compost pile in our backyard, I hope she doesn't get the shits form it. If she does I won't be keeping her tomorrow. Wild Child didn't go to sleep tonight until 11pm so hopefully I will get to sleep late tomorrow. I am unplugging the phone because E--- has this thing about calling me at the crack of dawn and disturbing me. She called me nine times today and she is really getting on my nerves, I'm thinking of nicknaming her Leech.

Today I went and picked up some local real estate books. I only saw a few things in there that I liked. I would love to build but I'm not sure if I want the headache of doing that. I've remodeled before and it wasn't that fun. I talked to my Aunt again tonight and we are counter offering in the morning. We expect to get another offer somewhere in between, which would leave all parties concerned with a nice little sum of money. The guy doesn't want to close until the 26th of April but that's cool with me. I think I'm going to take a small sum of the money and plan a vacation for Mr. Wonderful and I to go on. We never had a honeymoon and it would be nice to get away from Wild Child and be together without distractions. Then I guess I'll pay off Mr. Wonderful's truck. That payment is really starting to become a thorn in my side, especially since we still have my car payment. Sometimes I would like to sell my car and get a bigger one but I don't know if that would be in our best interests at this time, especially since we want to buy a house.

Oh, I'm thinking about taking Yoga. I really need to find something that would help relieve stress and tension in my life and I asked Mr. Wonderful and he thought it would be good for me. I was wondering though how many Big Beautiful Women would be in there taking the class. I don't want to be in there with a bunch of skinny chics. I'm also thinking of taking a continuing education course on the history of our local cemeteries. I used to do grave rubbings so I thought this would be an interesting course to take. The instructor gives the course in the actual cemeteries and that really grabbed my attention. I will be sure to take my camera and use black and white film.
