Confessions of an Ebay-aholic

The CSN concert was awesome! They did all the songs you would expect and then some. 2 sets, approximately 2 - 2 1/2 hours of music. We really enjoyed it!

Sorry I haven't posted more often, but I have been busy on facebook and shopping on ebay. I love to shop on ebay - I have found some really great vintage clothing items very reasonably priced. Some of my favorite clothes are things I got on ebay (shoes too)!

We are getting ready for Labor Day weekend in Key Largo, as we do every year. Then 2 weeks later my Mom and Dad (Trevor's Grammy and Grandpa) will be here for a visit. We can't wait to see them and i know they are looking forward to seeing their grandson.

Trevor has just started VPK. I don't know if this is offered in all states, but in Florida they have a Voluntary Pre Kindergarten (VPK) program which is state funded. It is every Monday thru Friday from 9:00 - 12:00. I also pay for "wrap care" meaning I take Trevor there around 7:30 - 8:00 in the morning and I don't have to pick him up til 5:30. It is cheaper to have him in VPK with wrap care full time than it was to have him just in preschool 3 days a week!

Come Sail Away

Crosby, Stills & Nash tomorrow night - babysitter is lined up, we're good to go!

We are going to Key Largo for Labor Day weekend - hope the weather is good.

I just booked a Carnival Cruise for next May. It will be our tenth anniversary, so we are treating ourselves to a vacation without Trevor. My parents will come stay at our house and take care of Trevor while we are gone. I can't wait! Neither of us has ever been on a cruise before, so it should be an experience.

Have a great weekend everybody!

Bills and Concerts

I am so sick of paying bills. I just got paid today and sat down at the computer to pay bills and now I'm depressed. Most of my paycheck is gone... but at least I am working and can pay my mortgage and bills, even if there's not a lot left over!

Well, it's official. Aerosmith has cancelled the remainder of their tour, including the make-up appearance here in Tampa. I will be able to get my money back for the tickets thought, and that will help with the bills!

Our next concert will be August 22 - Crosby Stills & Nash. It's in a smaller venue and should be an excellent show. Will keep you posted.

Plans for this weekend - clean the house. Probably no beach this time because it's supposed to rain all weekend.

Our camping trip was a great success! we have a Ford camper van with electricity, water, a fridge and a/c so we were very comfortable at the campground.

We got to the campground about 5:00, set up camp, did a little exploring (Trevor did, anyway), grilled steaks and baked potatoes, and roasted marshmallows. Then we went into the air conditioned camper and watched a DVD then went to bed. Trevor slept on the floor in a sleeping bag, which he thought was really cool.

The next morning, we got up, packed up, and headed to the beach. It was a beautiful day and the water was nice and warm - we stayed for 3 hours and Trevor and I got sunburnt.

All in all we had a great time, especially Trevor!
