word vomit

I am seriously dying to get outta dodge.  In general I enjoy having a winter season.  But every year I hit this point where I'm just DONE with the cold weather.   I've been looking at Vegas hotels and wow, talk about cheap!  It would cost us almost twice as much in fuel as the hotel.  I don't care if all we did was take the kids to the park to play ALL DAY, as long as I'm not cooped up in the house. (is there a kids park in Vegas?  I think there has to be.)

Also, we got a new TV.  60" to be exact.  It's still sitting on the ground in the box and it's been that way for 3 weeks.  We want to hang it on the wall in our family room, and I have been busy looking and looking (and looking some more) for a piece of furniture to go underneath it.  This is going to be the death of me!!!  We could do the cheap cheap version and get something ugly and not what we really want but it's good for now.  Or I could do the cheap route and redo a piece of old furniture I find off of Craig's List.  We could get a moderately priced piece at the local furniture place (but it wouldn't really be the dimensions we want, and probably not the color--we need something taller than the standard out there).  Or we could pay out the yang and get something custom made.  As in the exact dimensions we want, color we want, doors/drawers we want.  Part of me thinks what a great investment piece it would be, and I would have it for years and years.  Another part of me thinks, who am I? Donald Trump?  I don't have that kind of money.    Also it terrifies me to pick furniture.  I'd rather have all my crap stuff and have it be ugly, then actually invest in something and have it not work.  Sigh.  Why can't I just be blessed in the decor/style department?  Help.

Sleep.  Do you fall asleep easily?  On a good night it takes me 20 minutes.  The more pregnant I get the longer that gets.  But my, he can fall asleep in seriously 3 SECONDS.  We'll be chatting, trail off, and then zzzzz.  I'm like seriously?  We were JUST talking.  If I could choose a super power it would hands down be to fall asleep at a lightning speed pace.

Made a cake yesterday.  With crushed Oreos on top.  And it was good.  I think I'll go have a piece.

And because I can't have a picture-less post, here's a pic of my girl with the cake she decorated 100% by herself for her dad's birthday.  I think she was going for snakes...
