Funny Eli today. I hadn't seen him since Thursday morning, and I had missed the lil guy! I asked him for a hug, and he said "No, mommy", and I pretended to pout and cry and he said to me "oh mommy, Top it! (stop it!)". I can't believe the funny stuff that comes out of his mouth! He cracks me up, though! I think Chad and I might be in trouble in a few years!

Not much more to report! Working and trying to get to Disney is about all I've been up to! Hope you all are doing well!

7 Things about Me

While reading the other Blogs that I read, I saw this on one of them. It sounded like a good idea. Sooooo, Here are 7 things you may not have know about me!
In no particular order....

1. I am catholic, and I observe Lent. Ever since I was in a Catholic school (all two years!) I have done this. I don't always give something up, sometimes I work on improving myself. Sometimes I try not to swear, and a couple years I tried to not use the Lord's name in vain. I did ok with those things!

2. I have always wanted a big family. When I was a kid, I wanted 6 kids. I wanted 3 sets of twins, all boy/girl. My girls' names were Cory, Toni, and Bobbie. I thought it was cute. I no longer think that. :) I do want lots of kids, but I don't think that is in the cards for us. I am hoping for 1 or 2 more, but secretly, I'd like 3 more. I love kids, and the one I have is super!!!

3. I can no longer hold more than 1 job. I tried it. It stressed me out. I can't handle it. I ended my week and a half of job #2 crying, in a corner, eating my hair....well, ok. I didn't eat my hair...

4. I have lived my life in 7's. I lived in Indianapolis til I was 7, lived in Brownsburg til I was almost 14, moved back from Wisconsin when I was almost 21, and have been with Chad for a total of 7 years. Now that says something! ..hmm...maybe my favorite number shouldn't be 2!

5. I am scared of Wind. Yes. I know. I am a dork.

6. I am a geek, too. Band geek that is. That is part of my life that I miss a lot! Music is great, whether listening to it, or making it. I really do miss that....hmm. Idea!

7. I miss my family. All of them. From Chad and Eli, who I see almost every day, to my Kansas family that I haven't seen in years! Most of all, I can't WAIT for my Mom and Dad to move back. I miss them!

Hmm...there is 7! Wow! I didn't think I would get all of them! I don't usually talk about ME so much. Ok, so TAG! You are it! Now go do it! And, let me know when you have, cause I wanna know 7 things about you! Shoo!

What a Long week!!!

Hey! Check it out! I am updating!

What a hellacious week! HOLY COW!
I started job #2 this week. It was a killer! I had to sit, for all 5 days, from 8am (you know, my bedtime?!) until they released us around 330 (or i begged out for a Root Canal!). It was not pretty. I am NOT a dayshift girl! Stay awake I could not! I really felt kind of bad for the speakers, because if they looked in my direction, they could see that I was not there!

And yes, you read that write. Our wonderful dental insurance at the Riley's doesn't cover much in the way of Root Canals, so I'll be taking donations to cover that one! Whew! But the pain is better, so that's great! I met a wonderful dentist that I'm happy with, so at least I'll have someone great to take all my concerns too when I return in, oh, I don't know, another 2 years. What?! Not good enough? I know. But I do brush twice a day....

The boys did well this week, what with me working 2 full time jobs, we actually had a good week! I got to spend lots of time outdoors with Eli and the neighbors, and I really enjoyed that! I think Eli appriciates having me home more! We had a few nice family dinners, and I really enjoyed that! On Thursday, we even got a visit from the Ice Cream Man! I wish I had gotten pictures of all the neighbors and kids eating their Ice Cream! But, then I would have had to put my Huge Bomb Pop down to get the camera, and I wasn't really down with that! Eli had a Bomb pop, as well, and he had a red and blue beard, and his shirt was dyed all pretty colors! (don't worry Mom, I've already put stain remover on it, and it's being washed as I type!)

In bigger news....The Kring's are going to Disney! After much hemming and hawing, scraping of funds, and whining to my mom...My wonderful Aunt Debbie found us a week at one of the RCI condos for a really good price! Chad, Eli and I will be driving down in a rented Van and meeting my Mom in Orlando! We will get to spend a week swimming and getting to know our ol' pal Mickey Mouse!

I can't tell you how excited I am about this vacation! I have been trying to plan this for quite some time! However, we are traveling on a budget. If anyone has any money savings ideas for us, please let us know!!! We will be leaving the 10th of October.

I think that's it for now. I'll try to load some pics up for the next update!
Feel free to leave comments or email me anytime! We'd love to hear from anyone!

Sara, Chad and Eli!
