I am officially a Texan now. I spent half the day driving around, dishing out big bucks, just to make me and the van citizens of Texas. I also signed my organs away in case something should happen to me. We drove around the countryside looking for possible places to build. I have had a house plan for some years now that I would love to have built. We would like to live out in the country on quite a few acres of land. Maybe have a horse and some goats. Who knows? It's fun to dream! We are trying to sell our truck and get some money back in the bank. We finally got a potential buyer yesterday. I hope he buys it. If not, it's going to the Albertsons' parking lot where it will get more lookers hopefully. We live on a cul-de-sac, so there is not much thru traffic, if you know what I mean. I guess there are a couple of 12-year-olds from the middle school nearby, but they haven't shown any interest so far. The reason we are selling the truck is because Chad has a work truck and ours just sits on the street. We haven't even driven it since before the big freeze two weeks ago. What a waste! It's a good truck. I can't stand to see a vehicle just sitting there. Our van sits there enough, as it is. I am definitely not an on-the-go mom. I could sit here all week with no problem. I've inherited this trait from my mother apparently because she told me yesterday she had been going somewhere almost every day and was worn out. My dad is the opposite- he loves to be on the go. Outside anyway. It's funny I can see both of them in myself, more of my mother though.

Time to go get the kiddos ready for bed. So long!

Me too, people are always calling me a homebody...hahahahahahahaha. That is funny.

I did not go as much when Erika and Kayla were little so I am making up for lost time.
