The good news is that the last few days I have been right on top of things. Yesterday I went and bought the fabric adhesive I need to attach the Karate stars she earns and the Brownie badges I was supposed to get back in September. Then today we went and got a soccer ball and cleats 2 whole weeks before the season starts! That is a new record for me! I am even planning on attaching the stars and patches tonight - if we don't go roller skating instead. Now if I just find the time to finish my other to do lists - I will be way ahead of the game.

Blah blah blah
It's been a blah day. I'm grumpy to the point where I yelled at Miss Attitude for complaining about not having a drink in the car. Ok, she still needs to wait for things and learn that instant gratification is not necessary, but I shouldn't yell either. SO I apologized and she forgives and forgets... kids are too loving:)
We have been conducting a search for the perfect bike for her and it has not been easy. She needs a bigger bike for her height but she isn't skilled (or confident) enough to handle the extra weight that a big bike brings. Then there is the toss up - do we spend $100 and get her a cheap bike from Toys R Us in case she doesn't use it very long or do we spend $265 and get the really nice quality bike from the bike store? Ugh, I hate making decisions like this (and spending money - oh how I hate that part too).
In better news we booked our vacation to Universal Studios and I am counting the days until we leave. I am still waiting to book a flight back (hey we have a flight down - what more do we need?). I decided that I would buy the flight down to Florida since it was incredibly cheap ($59 each - see I told you I hate spending money) but now I am waiting for the flight back to be that cheap too. I am hopeful since the prices seem to be changing daily. We can't wait to get away for a week for some fun and a few screams too.
Miss Attitude has started taking Karate class and she loves it! She wants to get her black belt so she needs to practice a lot(and class is 4 days a week). I am hoping that she really learns balance and coordination from these classes. She is going to play spring soccer again in April - so we will be very busy.
