Monica's Musings

So I just had some stuff on my mind. Random things that I wanted to share. Maybe I'll do this from time to time and make it a whole thing. I'll take suggestions for what it should be called, but for now Monica's Musings will have to do...

1. Our new neighbors get up at 6 in the morning and make all sorts of noise waking me and Joe up. We don't like being awake at 6 a.m. thank you. I hate to be a complainer, but seriously if this keeps up I'm going to have to talk to the landlord I think about asking them to not scream at 6 a.m. I can't believe no one has ever complained. It's been two mornings now this has happened.

2. Joe had jury duty today. It figures we've got a million things to do and he'd have to go. So I had to drop him off at the court at 8:30 a.m. and then quickly run the girls to school for 8:55 a.m. I got them there with a minute to spare. Although, since they weren't in their classrooms and I know the snails pace they walk at once they are out of my site I imagine they were still late. Good news is Joe was done with his jury duty by 11:30.

3. Some lady clipped my mirror today. I was stopped at a stop light on my way to bringing the girls to school and this lady in this big SUV(not that it was much bigger than my mini van) decided to make a turn lane where there was not one. She pulled up along side of me and our mirrors clipped. Thankfully she wasn't going fast and there was no damage done or anything, but I found the lady very rude. I looked in her car to see if there was any reaction or apology coming from her, but no she put her hands to her mouth as if to say oops, but never once looked over at me to even mouth an "I'm sorry". We were sitting side by side at that traffic light for a good minute too. When the light turned green I had to get out of the way of getting hit again too. Some people.

4. I am getting reimbursed from U-Haul for not getting the truck I had reserved. I'm actually getting back more than I was expecting. I would have been happy with the cost of mileage back, but they are giving me $50 back. I'll believe it when I see it I guess, but it's definitely nice.

5. I had a moment of panic today when I couldn't find my debit card. I completely forgot I had given it to Joe to pay for our gas today before I brought him to jury duty and he didn't give it back. So I was going through my purse and wallet worried that I had left it behind somewhere or some how it fell out of my purse and wallet. It was a relief to hear from Joe and confirm that he did still have it and hadn't handed it back to me and I forgot where I put it.

6. Unpacking is going slow. I do have my kitchen mostly unpacked, but that's about it.

7. CJ is very 2 these days. This morning he opened up his box of blocks and dumped them all over the living room floor and then proceeded to spread them all around and then got up to play with something else. I told him numerous times to put them away. He started to, but was playing with it a little and then would try to distract me with his cuteness and left them strewn across the floor. After numerous requests to get him to put them away I finally just did it myself and now I have blocks and he doesn't, but he doesn't seem bothered in the least. He also then told me "No" when I said it was nap time. Yup, he's definitely 2.

Well, I think that's about it for now. Tune in next time for more of Monica's Musings...
