old maid, outhouses and other such nonsense

so...right now i'm listening to my husband play old maid with his niece and nephew downstairs...except it's the alaskan version of old maid so they keep laughing at the old maid card which is actually an outhouse. it's getting rather silly down there. they start school on thursday (why thursday? and why so early? who decides these things anyways?) so john and i are trying to get their minds off the impending doom. i took them to the movies earlier...now it's john's turn to entertain. HA...just kidding. actually i was playing mancala with jackie until the dryer clicked off...so now...instead of folding the increasingly wrinkled pile of clothes beside me i'm writing to my blog. typical.
life here in cali is pretty good. it's cooled down about twenty degrees so i'm a happier camper in that respect. plus...we just bought a BRAND NEW CAR!!! woohoo! we needed a bigger vehicle since we'll be carseat toting parents here pretty soon...and after much research we finally took the plunge and bought a 2006 subaru tribeca. for some reason john wanted the suped-up model...so now we are the pround owners of a car with a dvd player in the back. i never thought i'd be one of those people that had a dvd player in their car...they just seem a big frivilous to me...but oh well. they'll be nice for long trips. and i am glad for the navigation system. with my sense of direction...of lack thereof...it will certainly help me out. i'm gonna take some pics tomorrow so everyone can drool over it. :D

so until then...i'll leave you here while i go fold the clothes...finally.

there is nothing worse...

...than being sick in the summertime.

ugh. i've been infected with a lovely cold-thingy and all i want to do is cuddle up in bed with a thousand blankets and a nice, hot, steaming bowl of soup. but the whole "it's a thousand degrees outside" thing makes that a little unbearable. grr...oh well...i guess i can think of worse things in life.

just had another doctor appointment on monday. we got to hear the heartbeat again...it's so fast! plus...we also found out that we're getting another ultrasound on the 1st of august! so...if the baby's not feeling modest...we'll find out if it's a boy or a girl! YAY! we're both excited about that...

not much else is going on lately...i just got back from a rad worship conference last week and i'm totally gonna blog about it...but i'm still working through everything that was said. so...i guess everyone can look forward to that... :D
