Happy Happy Joy Joy

New Homeowner Tax Credit - I love you. I was a little nervous that you took so long to find your way to our checking account but this morning you were there. I had to take a double look because, as you know it's April Fools Day. Still, I took caution to the wind a paid off two credit cards in under 3 minutes. MuuhAHAHHAHAAHHAHAHAHA! Then I called the painters to schedule them to paint our staircase walls and guest bathroom. Of course this means that the lions share of you refund joy is now gone but ahhhhhhh it feels so nice. I even was able to pay one month ahead on our mortgage and a month ahead on our daycare. Finally a little financial breathing room for our little family.
The yard is another monster. I think The Husband and I are going to tackle the beast ourselves over the next few weekends. Sure it's going to be ugly, sweaty, and dirty but at least we won't go back into debt.
It's been a good month here in Texas. Weather is running in the 70s and 80s. Hunter is growing fast and talking more. The sad news is that he isn't taking his afternoon naps like he used to. I honestly need a 2 hour chill time in the afternoon when I am with him all day. So I end up putting him in his room for about that long. He spends half the time crying and yelling. I feel like the worst mom in the world but what else am I to do? I assume this is a phase and eventually he'll understand that it's time to be off alone for awhile. He has plenty of toys and books in his room so I hope he starts to delve into those instead of having a holy breakdown for 45 minutes.
Potty training is also just around the bend. We want to wait a month or two until things calm down with family visiting and The Husband going in and out of town for business. I'm so worried about getting this right that I got The Idiot's Guide to Potty Training. Yeah, I'm THAT mother. Wish me luck!

Nice post! Most friends would rather have a homemade gift, created specifically with them in mind, than a commercially made one. But some people who would love to make their own gifts as a thank you, or for birthdays and holidays, do not have the requisite artistic skills.
