It's me and the moon, she says, and I have no trouble with that...
I successfully completed my first week of work as a nanny, and I didn't go insane. Go me! So far it has been really great. There were a couple days where I was ready to rip my hair out, but the days where it isn't like that are awesome and a lot of fun. The kids are really great, and their parents have been really good too. Here are some pictures of the little munchkins. The top photo is of the girls. Alex is on the left, and Anna is the one with a mouth full of peaches. Alex is 3 1/2 and Anna will be 3 later this month. They are both really sweet little girls. Anna can be a hand full at times but she is hilarious. Alex is like a little mom, always wanting to take situations into her own hands. I don't know how many times I've said "I've got it under control, Alex. Go play now, please." The second picture is of Alex and the boys. Jacob, Alex's brother, is on the left, and Gabriel, Anna's brother, is on the right. Jake is 16 months and Gabe is 11 months. Jake is adorable and usually very sweet. He carries around a pacifier and a big brown blanket, and he calls those two things his baby. He'll walk around saying "Beebee? Beebee?" looking for one or both of them until he has it and then he is all cheerful. He is also obsessed with the dogs, Jack and Gwen. The first thing he says when he walks in the door or wakes up from his nap is "Puppies!" Gabriel is a funny kid, too. He's really into throwing things and he is working on standing on his own. He doesn't like to be left alone in a room, and if you do leave him alone he will whine and crawl after you until he can see you, and then he'll play there. His favorite toy is a big globe beach ball. Gabe and Jake get a little territorial over the toys sometimes but they are learning to play together.
Anyway, so that's that. The second order of business in this blog is that I'm looking for a car. I'm selling off the Miata for something that isn't rear wheel drive, and I've been scouring Craigslist for cars in the $3500-$5000 range. So far there hasn't really been anything really awesome, but I'm still refreshing the search query every hour or so and hopefully eventually something wicked sweet will come up. I really wanted this Jeep Wrangler, but Dad was concerned that the previous owner had driven it to crap because it was only a 4 cylinder or something. Right now Dad is emailing a person about a black 2004 Kia Optima. We looked at some Sebrings, too. Dad went and looked at an orange Beetle but it wasn't in very good shape. So yes, the hunt continues.
Yesterday was the anniversary of the day that Andrew first told me he liked me. He was in seventh grade. He had liked me for about a year before that. I got him the best present ever, but you'll have to see a picture of it once I remember to take one... hehe.
I am mad that there is youth group on Valentine's Day. So not fair. *angst*
My cousins are staying with us for the weekend. That means there will be lots of Wii competitions. Yesssssss. I don't know it I mentioned here that we got a Wii, but we did. We also have Wii Sports Resort, Rayman Raving Rabbids TV Party, and Lego Indiana Jones.
Okay, I am out of things to say. I seriously am devoid of creativity lately. Blech.
