Give us some insight into your weekend so far?

Mine started off OK with a good Friday night date night. Saturday has been OK but some annoyances here and there, see vent thread. Tomorrow is another doctor appointment for Doni which continues with the string of appointments this week. We're going to go broke with all these specialist and co-pays.

❤ Big Thanks to Vicki, trishosaurus, & Shortcake for the great siggies of my kids! ❤

So far so good for me.

yesterday was errand day for me. I get up at 4am and take DH to work and then go run all of our errands. It takes me literally all day because I have to drive 35 miles to Ky to check our mail box, then I drive 40 miles to a book store, 10 miles to the next one, 26 miles back towards home to grocery shop, then 20 miles to pick up dh. LOL. yes, I am a little crazy, but it's the only day I have the car.

Today I cleaned the kitchen and made Mexican for dinner. Tomorrow DH gets home super early, so I'm not sure how it will play out, but it will be nice to spend some extra time with him.

edit: OH! My Green Card showed up yesterday, so I am officially a (conditional) Permanent Resident of the USA. 2 years to remove my conditions and then 1 more until I go out for my citizenship! But as of yesterday I have my first piece of ID with my married name on it, SSN change of name request goes in next week and Drivers License this summer. Woot!

edit again: Oh my weekend just got real interesting. I can't sleep, wasn't tired. DH got up to go to work. I'm terrified of bugs, so I flipped the bedroom light on to make sure there were no lurking spiders. There were none, but there was a weird mark on the ceiling above. I inspect, get DH to come and collect the "mark" in a container.

Oh yeah.. it's a Bloody bed bug. I am so pissed off right now I could spit. First spiders, then ants, then silverfish, then bedbugs... we've barely been here two months! We JUST (as in 2 weeks ago) purchased a new mattress pad for my bed. They're going to want to spray it with pesticides. DH's is going to end up sprayed.. we're both allergic. If we don't spray them, we have to throw them out. I'm very tempted to make the complex pay for both of them if I have to throw them out. This is getting ridiculous.

Now, rather than getting to enjoy the extra time DH has off today, we get to tear our bedroom apart and clean it. I don't have enough quarters to do all our bedding, so it's no use to even start washing. I'm so angry I could spit.

I want to go home. I want my apartment in Wi where the worst bugs we had were a few stray ants that made a meal out of DH! But right now I can't even take my belongings home with me because they could be infested with Bedbugs!

They aren't feasting on me. I've dealt with them before, and I react quite violently (looks like hives) to the bites. DH doesn't react at all.. but it's dang near impossible to check his bedding for signs because of his skin condition.

we've had an okay weekend, friday we had to drive to our old apt to meet someone who bought our old sectional.
then yesterday we had to drive back over because DH has to get his work truck inspected so he can register it since its still tagged in OK and we live in TX .
Audrey and I stayed at his grandmas while he was doing all that and I was ready to come home when he was done..
so today we're hanging out at home.

Nothing much. Friday we stayed home, which is usual because Neely has band practice on Friday nights. He actually slept at his studio where he has practice because it was closer to the job site he needed to be at on Saturday morning at 6:00. He worked, did some more band practice Saturday night and got home about 10:30.

Shortly before 8 last night, Daniel started complaining of ear pain and I ended up taking him to urgent care. It turns out he has a double ear infection. Poor boy. He's on antibiotics now. Sarah took Gabs to urgent care this morning because she started running a fever and she has an ear infection as well.

Keelan did sleep from 11 pm to 7 am last night, which was AWESOME. I got some much needed sleep!

Ours was uneventful.

Jonah worked all weekend. All three kids drove me crazy. Usual weekend for us.

I am waiting on the bomb to fall when Dani's dad gets his letter in the mail this week about no more visits and we are getting ready to go to a weekend trip to Savannah next weekend.

What started as a nice romantic getaway for me and Jonah has turned into a family trip. I am still scratching my head on that one! Anybody wanna babysit?

Thank you JMC1988 for my siggy!
