Christmas was good. We went over to J's parents house and watched everyone opened presents. We got a lot of stuff too. A had fun with his presents. I will post some pics once i get them on my computer. I am so sick today. I am always sick on holidays I think. I have the worst cold ever. J & his dad put a grill guard on the xterra yesterday, it looks nice - and they realized that there was absolutely no anti-freeze in the car and that's why it was running hot and why the engine light was on. That makes me feel a lot better.
Kindof a long story... when J put in his 2 weeks to go for his new job the place he was at offered him free insurance to stay. It was gonna cost us a lot of money and that was one of his big reasons for leaving so he stayed. So since they really couldn't make the insurance free they gave him a raise to make up for it. They ended up not being able to give him a raise big enough to cover it all because they are a relatively small company so we decieded that we would pay $40 a month for all three of us - still a great deal. So we were planing on only getting $40 less a month but then when J got his paycheck we realized that the huge raise they gave him put us into a higher tax bracket and now we are getting $400 less a month. It sucks. Not that we are hurting for money but taking 400 a month from us for stupid insurance is insane. They are already paying J more than everyone else in his position so they can't pay him more so we have to just deal with it I guess. It is great insurance at least. I am pissed though - have to wait for his next raise to get new car :(
p.s. I never proof read before I post so if anything doesn't make sence that is why.
Josh and I are goin to Atlanta for the Nutcracker ballet tomorrow. I love the ballet I am so excited. When we got the tickets Josh thought that it was a play lol. I hope he isn't too dissapointed. We are going to lunch first at the Varsity. It is a famous burger joint in Atlanta. Aparently it is one of those places where they are purposely kindof rude to you, we'll see how that goes.
Attorneys say some recent celebrity prenups include:
— Limiting the wife's weight to 120 pounds or she must relinquish $100,000 of her separate property.
— Allowing a spouse to perform random drug tests, with financial penalties for positive results.
— Requiring a husband to pay $10,000 each time he is rude to his wife's parents.
— The previously mentioned rules regarding mothers-in-law, football and sex.
Yes i do think prenups are a good idea in some situations but with rules like these what does marrage mean anymore? Do the vows "through better or worse, sickness or health" mean anything? Crazy crazy.
A had been doing a few new cute things lately. I bought him a bouncy kickball from walmart a while ago. He tries to crawl around with it but it is too big for him to hold well so he would sit and look at it. He learned how to bounce it yesterday, so cute he lifts it up and lets go, watches it bounce, and does it over and over again. He also learned how to clap. I have been trying to get him to do it for a while now but he just realized what it meant i think. When he does something he thinks is funny or special he does it and it is so amazing. I know i know i am rambling about baby things again but I can't beleive what he is learning how to do. Here is a pic of him with his ball.
Team Ryouko is pretty cool, they are a gymnastics/martial arts group that can do some amazing things. You can check out their website for vidoes (you need bit torrent to download directly from them) anyway it is pretty cool.
Still don't really know what to get J for Christmas
I read this article http://msn.match.com/msn/article.aspx?articleid=5403&TrackingID=516311&BannerID=544657&menuid=6 not that I thought it would help me out at all, which it didn't , but I still don't have any really good ideas. I am getting him an introductory flying lesson (J's mom is getting one for J's dad too so they can go together) but he already knows about it since I can't keep a secret. J's health insurance and raise got screwed up at work and his paycheck was $300 less than usual and I was going shopping with that but now I don't have much to spend on it either. Don't know what to get.
I know it sounds strange to hate weekends but Josh always has to work and although I do not really have the time to watch tv during the day I always have it on and weekend programing sucks! Right now I am watching "Honey I Shrunk the Kids" I can't elieve I am watching this.
My book isn't getting written very fast, I had to take a break when Josh got pnemonia and stuff kept coming up and I never got back to it. I hope I do get a chance to continue it and finish it.
The feuneral was nice. I felt like everyone was judging me because I didn't cry. I have never cried at a feuneral before. I am not a person who cries in public, not that I try to hold it back I just don't. It was nice to see all my relatives though. Ashton had fun with everyone. Flying first class was great, we can never go back to coach. We hate traveling so much that anything to make it better is deffinately worth it.
Well, one of my cats (Mitsu) is throwing up everywhere. I don't know what is wrong with her but I keep finding little piles of kitty puke where-ever I go. Gross. I better find some more to clean up before Ashton finds it.
