Hello mother nature, I'd like to have a chat...

And the chat would go something like, "WTF?"

I know, very classy. I cannot handle this weird weather. Is it spring/summer or still winter? Make up your freakin mind. Last Friday it was in the mid-60s, as usual. I turned the heater on in the morning (we don't use it overnight because it is very NOISY) to get the chill out and it stayed off the rest of the day. Saturday...hot. The news had said possibly high 70s or low 80s. I don't have an exact temp but it was HOT. We went to tour some foreclosed homes and we took the convertible and I got sunburned. The houses did not have the AC on--probably since there was no power or water so we went from being hot int he car to hot in the houses. Then Sunday..oh my. It was 92 freakin degrees. I almost had to bust out some shorts but I forgot to shave my legs so capris had to do. Then Monday...65. Yep, we had a 30 degree change in one day and it was so windy our trampoline blew over. That is just not acceptable so if you know Mother Nature please ask her to do something about it. I have no idea how to dress myself in this kind of situation.

Then Ryan woke up with a runny nose on Monday, and if you were here you would notice that by the snot all up and down his sleeves (on both arms.) Yuck. Yesterday he had a low fever and today seems fine, though Ethan said he felt sick and I am congested. I'm pretty sure we all had colds in January so I thought we were good for a few more months.

Bargains: I just love a $1.74 shirt. I went to Target on Monday for a new night light for Ryan and came out spending $65. It just happens people. But when they have shirts for $1.74 and 3 piece pajama sets for $8 I gotta get them. Oh, and the $6 clearance purse that is too cute for words. I'll take a pic soon and post because I got some cute sandals that I am in love with--but they are from another store and whole other shopping situation. I also got a really cute hoodie at Target for $10 because obviously with this kind of weather, another hoodie is necessary.

And...I hung up my clothes. That is HUGE over here. If Ethan hadn't already bought me diamond earrings for Christmas he would have yesterday when he saw my dresser. Big Mama (another blog I read that I stole off of someone else's blog) did a Fashion Fiesta last Friday and had people show their closets/favorite clothes. I ofcourse could not participate because I only had about 5 things hung in the closet. I prefer to have a large heap on top of my dresser. IT WORKS FOR ME. Ok, not really. But my clothes never get put away. Ryan's get put away. Ethan hangs his own shirts, but for some odd reason, will not hang pants and he lays them on his dresser. But I spent some time hanging clothes yesterday and now you can see the top of my dresser. Too bad there is a load in the dryer now...

AH TARGET! Went today for some pj's for Maggie and 2 more white school shirts for Max and came out $85 later with all kinds of cute clothes that the kids don't need. Oooh and some really cute sandals for them both :o)

As for the weather... I feel ya. Same way here only I was raised here so I KNOW that March is very unpredictable and April can have some significant shifts too but at least it is warm again and NEVER below 55.

Brandi - That is awesome. $1.74? GREAT JOB! I can't wait to see the photos!!!

...we just got back from buying ONE DRESS for about twenty-five times that amount...so I'm superimpressed. And isn't it weird how you walk into Target for one item and you walk out with half the store? They are geniuses.
