Best Laid Plans

Was at the dentist again this morning. It started out as a root canal, but my tooth had calcified, so after a consultation with an endodontist, which included the sharing of my millions of x-rays, it was decided that it would be better to just get rid of the tooth. I have to go back again next week to get my exposed teeth roots patched. My life is just so dang exciting guys.

Also, we got a new-to-us car. It gets WAY better gas mileage than the jeep and my yukon. It's a cute, little chevy malibu that's a deep blue. We bought it from a gal that works with Troy, and she has taken excellent care of her vehicle. It even has brand new tires. We feel pretty lucky that we got to purchase it. (And she gave us a GREAT deal.)

Of course, this means that we now have three cars, which is entirely too many. I think we should sell the jeep, but Troy wants to keep it for the kids... Who won't be old enough to drive for a few more years.

The kids are definitely growing up though. Thaddeus is registering for middle school. MIDDLE SCHOOL. That is crazy. I have very distinct memories from when I was that age, and it is blowing my mind that I now have a child who is that old. I sense major shenanigans in our future.

Also, also, my family is having a reunion this summer, so we get to head out west for a little while. We're pretty excited, and are trying to decide how we want to work this. I'm thinking the kids and I will drive out as soon as school lets out, and we can be in Arizona for a while, and Troy will just fly in and out. We need to work out the details and such, because we have a lot of places to go, and people to see. Also, there will be LOTS of pictures with both sides of the family. However it all works out will be fun. Plus, since we'll be in the land of the swimming pools, I think I'll sign up the kids for lessons and stuff. We could all stand to be better swimmers.
