Weekend update

Saturday was our errand day. Nothing too exciting from that. We changed grocery stores from Walmart to Super Target and we aren't sure why we didn't do it sooner. Target is cleaner. Less weird and rude people. There are coupons on their website that you can print out that are actually really good coupons! The service was awesome. Joe was looking for walnuts and could not find them. An associate came up to him and asked him what he was looking for and then he went off and came back with two different kinds and then kindly told Joe where he could find it in the future. Joe was sold on Super Target from then on. They had better deals and a better selection. And those are the reasons we will be shopping at Super Target from now on!

Today was haircut day for the boys. Joey does so good anymore - just sits in the chair like a big boy and doesn't even need me nearby. Justin, on the other hand, is still full of energy and moved while she was using the clipper and got a chunk of hair taken out of the middle of his head - and it wasn't the first time.

Afterwards we took our van to the car wash. We still hadn't gotten it washed since we visited Michigan and needed to get the salt off of it. We took a coupon we had that said $2.99 wash and they ended up giving the wash to us for free so that was nice.

You know how things come in threes? This weekend our video system in our van stopped working. There is a dvd stuck in it and it won't play. It's totally hosed. 2. My air cleaner - the ionic air pro is hosed - the clean light is forever on. I cleaned the entire thing and it still won't shut off. I guess it's a known error with their brand as I googled it so I figure that is broke. 3. Our dryer isn't drying that well anymore. This has been going on for a few months now but it's getting worse. We've cleaned it out multiple times now. I have a dryer cleaner kit and we've cleaned the front by the vent and the back by the hose output and it still doesn't matter. I imagine we'll need to get that fixed soon. It just stinks that all of those things at the same time!

Sunday's have officially become the 'clean up the house' day. The house is clean - NOW. It wasn't this morning. We spent all afternoon after both boys took naps cleaning up the house. We purged (again) and then picked up all the toys and put them away.

Next weekend - to deChristmas the house. Put away all the trees, ornaments and all the decorations.

Nice thing Justin did today. Joey is in love with this stuffed armadillo. Justin also really loves this armadillo and the rule is whoever gets the bottom bunk get the armadillo. Joey had the top bunk today and started to sob about not having Arnie the Armadillo to sleep with. Justin saw him sobbing and took the armadillo and gave it to Joey to sleep with tonight. I praised Justin up and down for being such a caring and sweet brother and told Joey he was being completely selfish for not sharing with Justin tonight.

I 'think' the reason both boys like Arnie the armadillo so much is I sing a silly song about Arnie each night. It's almost a tradition now. In order to make both boys feel special I started a new song about the hedgehog since both boys now have a hedgehog because Grandma Dziekan made each boy one. Each boy made me sing it to them tonight and then Justin wanted an encore so I had to sing it to him one more time. They are so cute. I love doing little things like this with them in the evenings. It makes going to bed end on a good note!
